My angel Zoe ...

"Zoe"
Zoe was a beautiful Italian Greyhound and Aussi Shepherd mix. She was white with black spots and she had one blue eye and one brown. Her appearance was as unique as her personality. I adopted Zoe from Dewey Animal shelter in Las Vegas in July of 2001. She was 7 months old at the time. I later found out while filling out the paper work that she was scheduled to be put down that night.
She was such a wonder and a joy ... she obeyed my every command from the minute I brought her home.
I only had her for 8 months ... 8 short months. During that time she became sick several times, and the last time the treatment didn't help her. She got worse, and I finally told her it was OK to go ... I told her that I loved her and that it was ok to stop fighting. She lowered her head on the pillow, closed her eyes, and took her last breath. Even in her last seconds she obeyed me, she lived to please me and as hard as it was, I knew I had to give her that final command. It breaks my heart to know that she waited for me that day. That she didn't want to give up fighting until I was there and told her that it was ok.
I have had her cremated and have her ashes ... dogs like her come along once in a lifetime ... I know she is an angel now no longer in pain and will be with me always.

For three beautiful spirits ...

"Sadie"
Journeyed to the Bridge June 15, 2002
Sadie was found in a shelter. She had been taken there because she had been severely abused. When we found each other it was love in the beginning, and a forever love in the end. Sadie gave me eight beautiful years and if I could, I would have given everything I had to save her. Sadie died from IMHA, a disease that comes without warning and takes our precious babies even with the best of care. After two weeks in intensive care Sadie threw a pulmonary embolus. I could do no more than give her the peace she deserved. I ended her suffering on June 15, 2002. Sadie will be a part of my heart forever. I miss her with all my heart and soul: especially her sweet kisses and the smile she always had on her beautiful face.
"Those we love can never be more than a thought apart. For as long as there is memory ... they'll live on in the heart." I will love Sadie forever. Thank you sweet girl, for blessing my life with your love.
Pat ... Sadie’s forever human mom
"Jake"
November 1987 - January 13, 2002
Jake, part of me died with you, and the tears and pain in my heart have not lessened. It was Jan. 13, 2002 and the pain is as deep in my heart today as that day. I miss you Jake. I think the pain will remain in my heart until the day I take my last breath and we can be together again. I only hope, with all my heart and soul, you still feel my love and that you know that mama only did what she had promised. I let you die with the dignity you deserved.
Tomorrow is another day without you. I never imagined how lonely and empty my heart and soul would be without you here. I hope you are strong and are pain free. My soul and spirit run with yours and I pray always that you will come in my dreams and let me know you are OK.
Always know sweet Jake, no dog could have been loved more. No dog can ever fill your big paws or take your place in my heart. You are and will always remain my heart dog ... my baby boy.
Loved and missed forever by his human mom and sister CK.

My Heart Dog ... Precious Jake
"Sophie"
January 8, 1994 – April 4, 2005
Big in body, but bigger in heart. She would scold me if I was late from work. She loved me as much as I did her. She was loved by all that knew her: Sophie made sure of that. The bond Sophie and I had was one that no one could do anything to her unless I was with her. I stayed with her through every surgery, every test but at the end, as sick as she was, it was Sophie who reached out her paw and tried to comfort me. Love as strong as ours can never die. I will miss my beautiful girl forever. She remains a part of my heart and soul. Soph, I would go to the moon and back to bring you home … but someday baby girl, we will be together again; I promise.

In memory of ChiChi ...

My precious "ChiChi." I will always love you.

For sweet Queenie ...

"Queenie"
Queenie died on 11-3-02 after suffering with liver disease, diabetes, and pancreatic insufficiency. She suffers no more. What a gift from God she was and her memory lives on.

In memory of Queen ...

"Queen"
September 14, 1998 - November 25, 2002
We have been crying our eyes out with grief for our beloved Miniature Poodle, Queen. She was so very smart, knew so many tricks, was so anxious to please and was such a wonderful companion to us. We miss her terribly. She was taken due to a deer tick parasite on 11-25-02.

My angel Skoshi ...

"Skoshi"
My precious Skoshi ... You left this earth much too soon. I am missing you so much: your unconditional love, the way you used to look at me with those sweet brown eyes, your very gentle ways, your 'kisses' that woke me up in the morning, and even the sneaky side of you that liked to tip over trash cans. My life will not be the same without you, and not a day will go by that I won't remember you. I know you are at peace, and I will see you soon.
Love,
Mommy

Our hero Bandit ...

"Bandit"
June 10, 2000 – January 7, 2003
Although he was just a little guy, he took on the role of protector over our family! He would warn all to stay clear of his family until reassured by us we were O.K.! He always followed his boy Jordy to fetch the mail, but on that day a stranger happened to be walking across the street, and Bandit felt the need to run out and give this stranger a warning to stay away from Jordy! He did not see the truck, he only saw the need to protect what he loved, and gave his own little life in doing so! He is forever our little hero!

Remembering Casey ...

"Casey"
November 1987 – May 13, 1999
Casey was a 1-year old Lhasa Apso/Maltese mix who spent 8 days at a shelter before I adopted him. He was dirty, matted, and trembling with fear. He was my constant companion from that day on, needing to know where I was 24/7. This pup helped me care for and raise unweaned kittens for the SPCA. He would just act like their Momma; and quite often they slept on him. When Casey became diabetic, I did everything possible to prolong his life because I couldn't let go. He lost his sight and hearing and was on insulin his last year. Casey, I will always miss your sweet ways and just the thought of you still brings tears to my eyes. No other pooch will ever take your place. See you in heaven,
Mommy

My sweet little angel ...

"Sadie Catlin"
Journeyed to the Bridge January 24, 2003
My Dachshund Sadie died during surgery while being spayed. The vet thinks it was the anesthetic that she was given. She was the best dog in the world. She was so full of life and spark and she will be missed. She was only 5 months old and I am very upset by my loss. She entered the rainbow bridge yesterday on January 24, 2003. I loved her with all my heart, and my heart will always be with Sadie Catlin.
Sincerely,
Debbi
