In memory of Casper...

April 2000 - February 2003
I miss you so much. Thank you for bringing so much joy to my life and for always being here for me. I blame myself for not protecting you from your death. I'm so sorry. I would do anything to rewind time. I will never forget you, and I will always love you. You are always in my heart.

For my Tigger ...

January 23, 1987 - May 12, 2003
My name is Lisa Christy, and this is Tigger (Lady Ann). When I got her, she was the size of a personal check and could fit in my pocket. That was where she rode home. She picked me. Out of five puppies, she was the one that climbed in my lap. I didn't even know she was there till I was ready to go, then I moved the check and there she was -- I knew she was the one for me. She was aways full of life and looking for something to get into. If I was doing landry it always took all day because she had to help either by sleeping in the clothes or running off with the newly folded ones. And socks were always fair game. I had to have my dryer built up high so she couldn't get into it, because she did once -- thank God I was getting the clothes out. She always liked to be in a lot of blankets or under stuff. And she loved Christmas time -- she liked all the lights on the tree, and her stocking, and the apple ornaments that she always tried to take off the tree. In our sixteen years together we had so many good times and I now know that she is well and happy waiting for me at Rainbow Bridge. I was truly blessed to have been there when her time came; it made it better for her not to be alone at that time. She is so special that I will always kiss her good night every night. She is missed by more than just me -- her grandma, grandpa and Uncle Mike, and her Daddy Ryan were there when she went to Rainbow Bridge.

Remembering Boris ...

1989 - July 23, 2003
In 1989, my first day of vacation, a little black bundle of fur came tumbling up to me as I reached down to pick up the Saturday paper. He was all wiggles as he said hello. He was looking for a friend and picked me.
In the fall of 2001, he was diagnosed with lymphoma. We went through chemo with a wonderful doctor in Gaithersburg MD. My baby was a handful! Being a shepherd he hated being parted from me and being "human" he hated having his temperature taken, but he retaliated in a way that was quite stinky!!!!
At the end, it was sudden. One minute he was playing, the next vomiting. He died in my arms knowing how much he was loved. I couldn't bear to leave him, but was reminded by my boyfriend that he would always be with me.
My Boris died on July 23, 2003 at 9:30 pm. He was 14.
I can't wait to see him again.

Missed, but not forgotten ...

"Arturo" and "PG"
Arturo and PG, you are greatly missed!! No more cat meows, whistling, yelling "ma" and singing your favorite opera songs.
Our house is quiet without you, and everyone misses you very much.
PG, you went to the Rainbow Bridge in December 2002, and Arturo met you there on Aug. 5, 2003. The two of you are together once more playing and keeping each other company at the Rainbow Bridge.
Until we meet again - love you!
April 2003 - November 25, 2003
Our little Goffin Cockatoo Scooby - during the short time that you were with us, you brought much joy and laughter to our lives. Your comical antics and lovable personality just made you so much more special to us and everyone that met you. Even the people at the vet hospital who aren't bird lovers couldn't help but like you.
Scooter and Gabby miss their playmate. Join Arturo and PG at the bridge - spread your wings and fly - until we meet again.
December 25, 2000 - September 25, 2005
Our lovable Hoku passed to the Rainbow Bridge today. He was being boarded at the vet's for the weekend while we were away and for no reason went on to the Rainbow Bridge. If we only knew that by leaving you there, it would cause you stress we would have never left you.
What can we say about you, you were always such a good watch dog and a buddy to Chubs our other dog. You were always happy to see us when we got home, always wagging your tail and giving us kisses. You always had good manners waiting patiently at the side of the table waiting for food. You were such a silly dog never wanting to go outside when it was raining because you didn't want to get your feet wet, and trying to hide in places where you didn't fit because you didn't like the sound of firecrackers and thunder.
We will miss you soo much as you had many more years for us and Chubs to be together.
Play with Arturo and Scooby at the Rainbow Bridge and we will meet you there one day where once again your tail will be wagging happy to see us and smothering us with doggie kisses.
Daddy, Mommy & Chubs

In our hearts forever ...

April 16, 1994 ' December 23, 2006
Our baby, our first son - Po'okela Our Bundle of Joy. You captured our hearts the first moment you looked into our eyes. I remember when I took you to meet Daddy at work, you made him smile from ear to ear. It is hard to imagine that you're no longer with us. You had us on a schedule, alerting us for your 6 a.m. and 3:30 p.m. feedings. The house is so quiet now. When I look into the back yard, I expect to see you. Daddy, the boys and I miss you dearly and are trying to get thru this Holiday Season without you. I'm glad I got to spend some time with you before you went to the Rainbow Bridge. I saw the pain and discomfort in your eyes. When I looked into your eyes, you were ready to be out of pain. We want to thank you for the best 12 years your Daddy and I have had together. You even helped Daddy to propose to me. Kela, thank you for being our loyal buddy. You have left some big shoes to fill. We love you and you will always have a special place in our hearts! We can't wait to see you again. Love, Daddy (Jay), Mommy (Michelle), Jayson, Jordan & Jayden

In memory of Nanook ...

July 1989 - August 12, 2003
Nook, I love you so much! I still remember being 10 years old and taking you home with me, it was so nice to have a big fluffy dog of my own. You were there with me while I grew up, through everything, and for that I will never forget you and will always love you! This past year watching you get older and suffer just broke my heart -- I never wanted to take you to the vet because I feared that he would tell us to put you to sleep. I know that I had 14 long years with you, but I still wanted more ... I am glad now that you are no longer suffering, and that you got to die peacefully in your own backyard. I love you, and can't wait until I get to see you again!!

My sweet Carrie ...

"Charissa Ebony (Carrie)"
March 31, 1988 - September 17, 2002
Beloved little girl of Frank and Pamy
We had her every day of her life.
She died peacefully in my arms.
She was convinced she was not canine but was human. Refused to do dog things like chase a ball. She was a you please me poodle. Her momma was an I please you poodle. We bred her to hopefully get another just like her. Carrie proved her whole life that you can not Xerox a poodle. *VBG* We loved her so much. Her nickname was Bear because when she was little, she would stand on her hind legs and with her fluffy fur - looked like a circus bear. She loved people and at one time was allowed in WalMart. One day - she was in the basket and I stopped to look at something on my right. A couple people looked in my direction and when I turned around, Carrie had climbed out of the basket and plopped onto a bean bag chair. I guess she wanted one! Eventually she got one. The moment it came home, it was her's! She also loved wearing hats - especially her Santa Hat. Here is my baby Bear."

In memory of Mama Kitty...

"Mama Kitty"
1999 - 2003
"Mama Kitty" was born a feral cat in my neighborhood. After many months, she finally let me befriend her. She was with me for almost 4 years and never had kittens. This summer that all changed. She had 2 kittens and later that day delivered 3 dead ones. It almost killed her, but the vet saved her. She was a wonderful mother. She even took in an orphaned baby and raised it as her own. A few weeks ago, I discovered she was pregnant again. This time the birth and delivery took her life. I could never catch her and confine her to have her fixed. Feral cats are like that. I did my best to doctor her by slipping medicine in her food. She is gone now almost 2 weeks. Her death has left a void in me that cant be described. May she rest in peace at Rainbow Bridge and know that at least one human was good and loved her so much.

Remembering Dylan...

"Dylan Elijah"
December 23, 1999 - August 25, 2003
Dylan, my sweet cow-cow boy, little boy blue, you were taken away far too soon and I know I should've done better to prevent what happened from happening. It was an accident, I know, but protecting you was my responsibility and I feel I let you down. Your daddies miss you intensely and we don't know what we're going to do without you. We'll be looking for you at the Bridge. Until then, go play your favorite game of chase the ball!
Love you always - your daddies

For our Fallon ...

Our 11-year-old Yorkie passed away Monday, August 25, 2003. My family and I are devasted over her loss. She is in God's hands now. We will see her again when it's our time.
Her name was Fallon.

For Missybelle - free at last ...

My Dearest Missybelle:
You came into my life at seven weeks old and brought me much joy. I sent you to the sanctuary so you could have the same joy of being with a mate and others of your species. That was very difficult, letting go. Even though I knew it was the best thing I could do for you, it broke my heart.
Now you have passed on to a better place where you are free of cages and you can roam free and be a monkey again.
I love you.
Your Surrogate Mom
