Our tiny friend ...

"Mr. Jingles"
This is our beloved little guy Mr Jingles. Some would say "It's only a hamster," but to us he was much more than that.
We rescued him from a home where he was not having such a good life and was being forgotten about. I would like to think that from the day we brought him into our home that his little life changed.
We had him 2 years, and in that time he gave so much back to us. To see him holding a little piece of fruit in his hands, or to see him come to the front of his cage when he knew we were around said it all to us: He was a happy little hamster!
Rest in peace little one. Hope you are with Rolo and enjoying all the cucumber you can fit in your pouch at Rainbow Bridge. See you again one day.
Love, Mummy and Daddy xxxxx

My little buddy ...

August 5, 1991 - June 18, 2002
I miss my little buddy. On June 18, 2002 at 7:00PM I lost my beautiful girl of almost 11 years old. She was the light of my life, ever since she was a puppy. I remember the day we took her home. She was in the animal shelter in a little room, and the whole room except for this little spot in the corner was filled with newspaper. And where do you think Shelby went to the bathroom? That's right, in the corner where there was no newspaper. I'm going to miss those things about her. I could go on and on about Shelby stories but I'll try to keep this as brief as possible. I'm really going to miss the smiling face and that goofy look she used to give me. I'm going to miss her scratching at my door and sleeping with her even though she did take up a lot of my bed and it annoyed me. I would do anything to have her back in my bed. Shelby I wasn't able to say good-bye to you in the way I wanted because I was upset. I want to dedicate this Rainbow Bridge Pet Memorial to you and this is my good-bye to you. I saw a poem the other day and it went like this: Just this side of heaven lies the Rainbow Bridge. When a beloved pet dies, it goes to the Rainbow Bridge. It makes friends with other animals. Though happy and content, they still miss someone very special, someone they had to leave behind. Together the animals chase and play but the day comes when a pet will suddenly stop and look into the distance ... bright eyes intent, eager body quivering. Suddenly recognizing you, your pet bounds quickly across the green fields and into your embrace. You will never again separate. Happy tears and kisses are warm and plentiful. You look once more into the loving eyes of your pet and know that you never really parted. You realize that though out of sight, your love has been remembered. And now, you cross the Rainbow Bridge together.

In memory of Thomas ...

November 1, 1989 - August 31, 2002
Thomas, my precious angel, the hardest thing in my life was to watch you suffer. Even harder was to watch you go. Almost impossible is to live each day, knowing you won't be here with me.
I grew up with you. My little ball of fluff, my baby. I'll miss you so much. I will miss your friskiness, your waggy tail, the kisses and slurps, the way you just knew what was going on in my head. I'll miss your hugs and holding you in my arms. My child, I know you're in a better place without pain. Last night, I slept and I thought I felt your beautiful weight near my feet, where you prefered to sleep. I find jumpers with which I've held you, still with strands of that glorious fur. I go outside, and see the geranium you used to sit under, and get stuck in your fur. That beautiful smell reminded me of you so.
It's been 1 day and a few hours. I still miss you. I'll always miss you. I'll always love you. I am waiting for the day where we'll meet again. Hopefully I can stop dwelling on the fact you're no longer with me, and start celebrating all the time and love you gave me ...
My brave pup. Always the perfect gentleman. Always the little fuss pot. I know now why you got cross with me when I tried to give you your medicines -- you knew God was calling you, to wait for me at Rainbow Bridge.
In this last week, my life was devastated. From thinking I still had a few more years with you, to only days.
Thomas was put to sleep after he was diagnosed with advanced diabetes, liver damage and cushing's syndrome ... we were there in those final moments, so you were not alone. how I wish I'd brought your favorite flowers, something to make it easier. You just stretched out as though you were going to sleep. My angel, I can't wait to be with you. I'll always remember you, and all the precious memories you've given me. I'm a better person because of you. Thanks for being my child, friend, brother and dad. I love you, Thomas.
~Your friend forever, Ivonne.

For Teddy ...

I love you, Teddy, and you will always always be in my thoughts ... I am heartbroken without you ...

In memory ...

1985 - 1998
He was the cleverest dog that I ever loved. So outgoing and friendly. He adored my husband Jim -- they spent hours together walking in the park and in Birkacre woods. Rathbone had a wonderful smile and made everyone he greeted feel special. He doted on the children of the family, especially Helen and Jennifer.
He loved to go to coffee morning at chapel and made sure that they all knew he was a "Jesus" dog by showing how much he cared.
When he passed over I know he raced off to find his Daddy Jim who passed on the year before. I know that they are both waiting for me to join them by Rainbow Bridge.
1988 - 2000
This little Cairn Terrier thought he was an Irish Wolfhound. He had such a unique character!
He did not tolerate being fussed with unless of course he was ready to have his cuddles. He loved to walk with my husband Jim, and Rathbone, and stayed with me for 2 1/2 years after they had both gone ahead. I was his charge and he guarded me with his life.
He loved to ride on my electronic buggy all around the village and even when diabetes required him to have his daily injection he remained lively and brave. He was the last dog I shall ever have, and I loved him so very much. See you soon, little Bobby.

Our angel Emily ...

June 1, 1991 - March 4, 2002
Born in Marshall, Michigan and passing in Kalamazoo, Michigan, 10-1/2 years of beautiful times and memories of ours went to heaven with Emily that terrible sad day. We and our vet did everything we could for a week to save our angel from kidney failure, but powers from above took over. Emily, we will always miss you and "we will meet again."

In memory of Butterscotch ...

July 1995- September 25, 2002
I love you my baby boy. I will never forget you and one day when it's my time to be called to heaven, I know you will be waiting for me with those big bright eyes and we'll play hide and seek like the old days. Daddy misses his little friend so much and so does the rest of the family. Big Kitty sits by your chair wondering where you are. Be a good boy in heaven and we will meet again....
Love forever,
Vancouver, BC Canada

A special Stranger ...

"Stranger, a.k.a. Puddy"
Owned and loved by Eric Laird.
Came into my life in 1988 when he wondered onto my family's porch looking hungry and filthy.

He is gone but never forgotten.

In memory of Fudgey ...

November 5, 1990 - September 30, 2002
We miss our Fudgey so much and the pain is so deep in our hearts. We know in our hearts he is now young again and free of illness. We love you Fudgey forever. You gave Mommy and Daddy 12 years of the most beautiful love and companionship. We are so happy that you were in our lives. We did not miss that many splendored thing. We will see you again some day at Rainbow Bridge.
Love, Mommy and Daddy
