In Memory of Kiera

Our baby girl, Kiera was an absolute joy from the day we met her and brought her home. You had just a one of a kind personality and playfulness about you that was definitely known to everyone that you came in contact with. You were always such a happy girl, ready to play, ball or toy in mouth and wiggling uncontrollable at any given moment! You provided many years of so much love to us, our family and friends and you are truly missed like you would not imagine.

You were a great "sister" to your older little brothers, Kino and Kozmo :-) You were always by my side until the very end, enjoying life and always aiming to please and just be loved on. I'll always miss your cuddles and your never ending love. I'll always miss our walks and all of your play times, swimming, hiking and camping with us. You will never be forgotten baby girl! I know you're in a better place, pain free now, running and playing as usual! Until we meet again, we'll cherish all of the memories, laughter and love you've given us. Rest easy sweet girl, we love you!

In Memory of Jay & Valentine

Jay and Valentine,
I miss you so much! You both brought me such tremendous comfort, warmth and love to my life - so many smiles, so much laughter and years of fun times - walking, swimming, playing and snuggling. You helped me raise my human babies and you were so good and gentle with them like an older brother and sister. You helped me through many tough years and always welcomed me home with happy barks and warms licks. I will miss you every day! Your paw prints are forever on my heart.

In Memory of Cleo

I heard your call from the Animal Shelter. Why else would I just wake up one day thinking I needed to go to the local animal shelter? We found you huddled at the back of your cage, waiting for us. I knew, in an instant, that yours was the call I heard. I attached to you so quickly that leaving you to be spayed was agony. I have loved having you in my life ever since that day.

I loved learning about dog behavior with you. I am grateful for the time we spent with Happy Tails. You were a wonderful therapy dog. Your unconditional love and gentleness were remarkable. You touched the heart of everyone who met you. Everyone would say "That's the sweetest dog." I'm grateful to have been able to share the gift you were to the world with others.

I loved your "drive by" licks.
I loved our walks and runs together.
I loved seeing you greet me when I came home.
I loved seeing you excited about going to daycare and then excited to come home.
I loved seeing you run through the woods and the creek at the cabin.
I loved having you in the car with me.
I loved you being Sandy in the schoolÕs production of "Annie."
I loved when you got an ovation when you came across the stage when the actrice called you.
I loved seeing you sleep upside-down on your bed nestled next to the chair.

Although I could not share the joy you found in rolling in deer poop, I have loved having you in our lives.

I know that everything is perfect and that nothing is permanent. I know you bless the space you're in now the way you blessed us. I miss the gift of your physical presence, but I know that with every flow of life there comes the ebb. I am called upon now to release you back to the One, knowing that nothing is ever really lost in the universe.

Thank you for the love and joy you brought into our lives. You expressed God on 4 legs wrapped in fur so soft that I never stopped burying my face in it. I saw God in your deep eyes and in your unconditional tail wag when I entered the room. I felt God in your peaceful, calming presence. Now I lovingly release you to shine in the perfection of God's embrace.

In Memory of Layla


Layla was a true family dog. Fifteen and half years ago she became part of our family. She was a loving and gentle soul who enjoyed life. She went on many trips with us; camping, the beach and home for the holidays. Layla was quite the traveler! She never met a dog or human she didn't like. All she wanted was to be among us, giving her unconditional love. Layla will be truly missed and never forgotten.

In Memory of Bodhi
6/22/1998 - 4/27/2010

Bodhi was a unique dog. He was loving, strong-willed yet very sensitive, expressed emotions similar to that of a person, and was often described as "majestic". But most importantly he was my friend & companion for almost twelve years.

Bodhi was at my side every day of his life. He went almost everywhere I did including work, where he would sit quietly on his couch much like a person. He was more than a pet considering I never had children of my own (the two-legged kind). His unique personality and unconditional love will be missed by all who loved him - especially me.

“He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog. You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart.”

In Memory of Sam

I brought Sam to his new home at 8 weeks old. The minute I put him down in the tall grass, he bounced over to his new dad as if to say "hey, I'm home." Sam never left our side. He was a travel'n dog, loved to ride in the back of the truck with his ear and lips flapp'n in the wind. Anytime the truck bed was down, or car door open, he'd jump in to let you know you were not leaving without him. He was an excellent swimmer, hiker, frisbee player, newspaper fetcher, slobberer, and all around lover boy. His best act was GENTLY taking a toothpick out of his dad or paw-paw's mouth and holding it in his, never swallowed or spit it out, and would not release it until you offered him a GOOD cookie to swap out.

Sam was our kid, our companion, our consoler, our friend, and the BIGGEST and HAPPIEST part of our life! We are so very fortunate he gave us 14 years of his life to us!

In Memory of Timber

Timber was our joy from the first moment we picked him up in our arms as a puppy. He was athletic most of all and loved football, soccer, frisbee and any way he could be involved. We have so many fond memories of fun times with him. We took him to golf courses late at night and when the sprinklers were on he was delighted. We couldn't see him but could hear a bark and then a "woosh" as he jumped high in the air and tried to bite the stream of water. No matter what he did he never wanted to stop.

Our days are saddened with him missing. He was a beautiful and most lovable dog. Towards his last days we'd shed a lot of tears knowing the moments left were precious, he'd lick the tears from our eyes and cheeks. We can hardly bear his loss. We were blessed to share 15 wonderful years with him. May he run and play above with no pain holding him back!!

Timber, you're most loved and missed and will never be forgotten.

Christen & Bob Buono
In Memory of Carlita (Carly)

Our dearest Carly – we miss you. You were “The Huntress” of our home, saving us from bears, opossums, birds and the crazy squirrels with your every being. While you may have been selective of your friends here, we’re sure that you, Rosie, Cheyenne and Muffy are waiting for us. Play hard and enjoy!

Thank you, Melissa, for your compassionate and kind heart in our moment of choice. You made Carly’s transition one that will be treasured as calm and peaceful.

In Memory of Roc (AKA: Roc-A-Feller)

"I hand over my heart to those eyes of blue - their hands, their hearts, and their promise to me - the one with eyes of sadness".

Believe it or not, Roc was so calm and in such a peaceful state, he snored until the second he passed. What a way to go!!!

"Be patient, my angel boy, and I'll see you at the Rainbow Bridge".

In Memory of Kacey
8/30/1998 - 4/16/2011


She was a wonderful part of our family. We got her when our daughter was 2 and they grew up together. She was so smart, well mannered and loved everyone, even the 4 cats she shared her bed and bowl with.

We would like to thank "Sweet dreams my pet" for their caring and gentle help in making the process as comfortable as possible for everyone especially Kacey.

We will miss our sweet girl. Thank you for making our lives better and being a part of our family.

In Memory of Missy
12/11/98 - 08/08/11


Missy was more than my pet, she was my "baby". The hardest moment was knowing it was time to let her go; I was not ready to say good-bye. She suffered through many procedures and surgery, but ultimately lost the battle. I could see it in her eyes telling me "It is time for me to rest and it's okay to let me go". My call to Dr. Crowder was like the stars aligning to help Missy pass gently to the other side.

Dr. Crowder and her technician Jenna were so compassionate and patient. They allowed me to set the pace. They allowed me all the time I need to say good-bye. I could tell by the way the two of them touched my Missy, that they were feeling my pain. They allowed my baby to leave this world in her own home with dignity and grace. I cannot say enough about Dr. Crowder and the service that she brings to not just our pets, but members of our family.



Dogs have a way of teaching us about LOVE, LOYALTY, and FRIENDSHIP. The gifts Missy gave me were happiness, companionship and UNCONDITIONAL LOVE. These things will never leave me because they are mine to treasure FOREVER.

To Missy: I hope the LOVE that surrounded you on your last day, gave you the strength to pass over to a more peaceful place. Thank you for being a part of my life and securing a large part of my heart. You will be truly missed by so many.

In Memory of Fudge
03/11/99 - 08/18/11


Fudge Clevenger, a mixed-breed canine combination of Sharpei, Lab, Dalmatian and Chow, was bred by the Mast family and born on March 11, 1999. I was informed that she had been adopted to a family with small children, that it hadn't worked out, that she had suffered physical and emotional abuse. Rescuing an animal from a bad situation apparently brings with it a fierce loyalty.

I was going through a traumatic time in my life when Fudge came along. She became a close friend very quickly and remained my steadfast and true friend until her death.

Fudge was very loved by so many. She traveled extensively, including sniffing in corn fields in Indiana, swimming in the Gulf of Mexico at Panama City Beach, saw the Atlantic Ocean first-hand at South Carolina's Edisto Island . . . even visited New Orleans.


Late in 2010, she began to occasionally limp on her left foreleg. Two trips to vet confirmed her leg had broken at the top, and tests confirmed cancer. Given only the choice of amputation or euthanasia, I chose amputation. On July 4, she developed a bacterial infection in her remaining foreleg and could not walk without a sling beneath her. Without warning, on August 15, one of her back legs went numb. X-rays showed cancer had struck her spine and was present in her pelvic areas. With no chance of regaining her ability to walk and the inevitable progression of the cancer and more pain, I chose to let her die with dignity. She went to Canine Heaven peacefully while at home on August 18, 2011.

I consider Fudge one of the best friends I've ever had in life, and while some might say that's more a reflection on my lifetime friendships, I assure you our bond of friendship, of trust, of love, was quite real. If we all go to the same afterlife, it is a comfort to me now that I will see her again, that she'll be able to communicate with me as she never could on Earth.

There is a tremendous hole in my heart from this great loss of my unforgettable friend and "daughter." But I thank God for the 11 years we had together.

Taking time to Grieve
Losing a pet can be similar to losing a family member.
It is not an easy thing to experience and grieving is necessary. Everyone is different in their grieving process and I encourage families to allow everyone in the family to grieve differently.

Take time to grieve the special relationship you had with your pet. Some people spend more time with their pet than extended family members and friends, so treat the loss accordingly.



One suggestion is to plant a flowering perennial in honor of your pet. Every spring, when the plant blooms, you can be reminded of your loved pet.
