All too often Time runs out for babies like this. Help Us. Help Them.

In Loving Memory

If you would like to order an Engraved Stone to mark your beloved pet, we would like to suggest a company.  Please click on the picture to take a look at this wonderful and caring company called Adirondack Stone Works 

 

  This page is designed to help all of us who have lost our beloved pets heal.  It is believed that all pets cross to the Rainbow Bridge to eternal happiness and wait for us to join them.

Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
  When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.
  There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.
  There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.
  All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by.
  The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

  They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent; His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Wilbur

 He was my best friend and the best dog ever.  He would always be ready to go for a walk or to hang out when i did my homework.  Plus whenever I was sick he would come and lay down with me to keep me company.  We are bummed he had to go but he hasn't been feeling well and it wasn't right to let him be in pain.  I miss him already but wanted to say thank you to you guys for finding him for us and bringing him home to live with us. ...Noah 

Spirit

 Spirit, Oct 1999 - Nov 2012.  Spirit was a gift to us at the age of 4 months.  Through out his life he was just the kindest soul.  He received his Good Citizen Certificate at the ago of 18 months, on the first attempt.  He just nailed that test.  Made me proud because I trained him all myself.
 
He was a Therapy dog for many years until he let me know he really didn’t want to do it anymore, but, he could teach a politician how to work a room.  
Spirit went everywhere with me.  A road trip was just not the same if the boy wasn’t riding shotgun with me.
 
He slept in the water bed under the covers like a person between Mike and I, he had his own pillows.  When I had any kind of an operation (and there were about 6) he made sure he was right there to take care of me.
 
Spirit lived a long and full life and he gave as good as he got.  There is a huge hole in our lives at the moment.
Spirit was Italian Greyhound and Pappion mix and, while I don’t really like designer mixes, this was a great 1.
 
Mike and I are sponsoring a kennel at the RI SPCA in Spirit’s memory and will be donating to Jennys Hope Rescue to help in whatever way chris needs to use the funds.
 
  We are not ready to even think about another dog but when we are it will be a small rescue I can promise you that.

Murphy

 He brought so much love and joy into our lives the short time we had him.  It still brings a smile to our faces when we talk about him and his squeaky blue elephant that went everywhere he did.  He sure did love his squeaky elephant.  We'd toss it and he's bring it back to you, turn around and always sit facing out, put his elephant down and proceed to start licking it.  Cracks me up.  He was a favorite with the residents at the hospital and nursing home where my father was a patient for several months.  We'd always bring him when we visited my father and Murphy said hello to everyone.  He was so friendly and let all the elderly people and nurses pet him.  Of course, he always had his elephant along with him and would put on his little show for the residents.  Everyone loved him.  Poor Murphy did not deserve to have his life ended.  We miss him but hope he's squeaking away in doggy heaven with his forever squeaky elephant.

Our Hearts are broken.
We will see you again one day little man.

Norton

Norton was adopted as Max.  He was not young, but Jim and Lori adopted Norton only knowing that he was just so sweet.  We never could have imagined that Norton would ever look and act like the young dog that was hiding deep within.  What fun he had, and what fun he gave to his family.  They loved him more than life itself.  Jim and Lori.....You and Norton will once again meet when it is time and it will be as if you never missed a beat.

Bon Bon, 

Our tears fall upon on our cheeks today for you. May you Rest In Peace little girl, we will see you again one day.

Fuggly

We found my sweet, old goat Fuggly dead this morning. I had him over 10 years & he was quite the character. He was very shy & it took a long time for him to warm up to you. He loved being brushed during shedding season. And he loved grazing in the big field & dozing in the sun. His best friend was Gorgeous George, a Guinea Hen. They were often seen together relaxing on a big rock in the sunshine. Fuggly was a very cool goat, as far as goats go. Death is always a part of the farm, but it is never easy to get used to. He was popular with my friends & he will be missed.  Jules

 

Sam

 

Sam was born in March of 2000.  I knew he would be my kitten forever.  His personality was like no other.  Sam moved to two apartments and finally our own home in 2007.  I remember telling him this was our place and we would be staying a long time.  Sam became extremely ill in February of 2009.  I rushed him to the emergency animal hospital to find out that he was in congestive heart failure.  Sam had a condition known as hypertrophic cardiomyopathy.  His prognosis was only three months.  He had formed an aortic thrombosis which was dangerous to say the least.  Sam and I, his two boys and his 2 dog brothers had our three more months together.  He passed away on Mother's Day 2009 after a day of following me around the yard.  I will miss my Sam, my best friend.  I look forward to the day I see him again on Rainbow Bridge.  Sam has his spot in our yard with a plaque and many flowers.
 
I love and miss you Sam!
Forever in my heart.

Blackberry

                                    

 It's with great sadness that we lost Blackberry the morning. of July 31, 2009. Her picture (attached) was taken July 25, 2009, on the beach at Cape Cod.
She was born on June 11, 1995, from a litter of champion standard poodles bred by Wendell Sammet, of Bryantville, MA. We were allowed to come to Bryantville to choose which of the litter we wanted. Our 7 year old daughter chose and named the female dog "Blackberry" and we took her home to Bedford, NY, on September 2, 1995. 
    Blackberry (aka as "Blacky" and "Wacky Wacky") was a very spirited, non submissive, well trained  by us through the guidance of the Kaeley Obedience School, at the Bedford Hills Community House. She was affectionate, loyal, protective and a keen hunter, chasing after deer, squirrels chipmunks , wild turkeys or any other animal encountered in the woods on our daily hikes of 1 1/2 hours. She only once was successful in catching a squirrel who was jumping from tree to tree and missed a branch and landed near Blacky... 
    She was a good jumper, taking 4' horse jumps with enthusiasm, or any other obstacle in her path. She loved going on car trips, barking at us to indicate it was time to go somewhere and waited for the opening of the car's tailgate to make the leap, face forward and be the guiding eye for the driver. If a car got too close she would pounce on the window and bark. She was an avid ball chaser and catcher, but disliked the water and would never go for a swim, thoigh she didn't mind our hosing her down for a shampoo wash. She trusted us implicitly. was very obedient and was off leash almost all the time (except when in towns or near roads).  
    Blackberry had a wonderful life of good health, love and admiration from all humans who came in contact with her .She was a beautiful looking dog with a look that was priceless. Her socialization with other dogs (not cats) was optimal, as she learned to be social at her training together with other dogs. In the past year she did have some liver issues and a bladder infection, which set her back a bit. We did notice that she slowed down a bit, no more jumping horse jumps yet jumped into the car, her hearing and long distance vision started to diminish. She had a seizure last Friday morning, struggled to stand up, had weird head movements and each eye looked in different directions. We took her to the vet and she was sedated and put to sleep in a very dignified way, appropriate to the caliber of this dog.
 
We will miss this great, affectionate, sprightly, fun loving and beautiful companion. She gave us her unrequitted love,  we returned it and she knew it all along.
 
She is resting peacefully at her favorite spot in our garden under pine trees near the house.
                                          Until we meet again...
                                                  Love,
                                                    John 

Mindy

This is my good friend Mindy, who was laid to rest yesterday. She was a very reserved gal who asked nothing of me. She sometimes would come to me while I was at the computer, and shove her nose into my hand. And wag her tail. She was a rawhide theif, often times using the chaos in my house to her advantage.
 
Mindy had milk chocolate eyes and white eyelashes. She reminded us of the Grinch's dog. She was a smelly dog and her nickname was "Stinkerella". I only had her 2 1/2 years but I miss her.

Maxine

Maxine (i call her my maxi-pad) was 10.5 y/o when i started fostering her.... she had been tied to a bannister in someone's basement for several years.... she had access to a couch and a tv... the people were very rich and the wife didn't like her shedding and didn't want her upstairs... in the basement is where maxi-pad started going blind... when they surrendered her, she was almost completely blind but could still see a little... her favorite things were swimming and retrieving the ball... she would retrieve for hours and hours if you let her... she was so happy to be out of that basement.... the vet then told me that she was going to be completely blind soon, and there was nothing that could be done to prevent it... the rescue organization offered maxie-pad to be a permanent foster if i kept her, as maxie was so so happy here, and they knew she'd be spoiled for life (and with my others, i couldn't afford another one)... i immediately said yes and never looked back... maxie had already wrapped herself around my heart... she would have been 16 y/o in april had she not died last month... she had started having seizures several months ago... she also had dementia (she would give her paw to the refrigerator, the stove, the dishwasher and then bark for a treat)... it was so cute and so funny and so sweet... of course, she always got a treat for doing so... even blind, she would hike off leash in the woods (not scared at all)... she'd get on a scent and follow her nose... it seemed like i was going to have to put her down a few months ago, but a dear friend told me to try homeopathic remedies... so i did... those remedies gave me 4-5 wonderful wonderful high quality-of-life months with maxine... it was like she was a new doggie again... so i had that time to say goodbye and enjoy her all the time... it was the best gift ever... but then she started having more seizures, and it was suspected she had a small stroke, too... her quality of life was not good anymore, so i had to make the most unselfish decision i could make... and the hardest one... even after she was gone, i lay down with her on the blanket in the vet's office for about an hour so she wouldn't be alone... i got to hold her and talk to her the whole time... she is my forever heart dog... i will always miss her and cherish every moment that i had with her... when you rescue seniors and special needs like i do, you never get enough time with them... maxine was cremated, and i carry some of her ashes around on my keychain... she will be with me forever. Love, Donna
