  • In Loving Memory Of Princess

    Thank you for that magical day you literally walked into my life and adopted me. I wasn't looking for having a cat at the time, but there you were. Walking into my apartment on a beautiful March afternoon in 2006 through the open patio door, sitting down in front of me, and meowing. After five days, and not being able to find anyone who said they had lost you, you already had your first vet visit and gotten your name, a name that fit you so well. You were estimated at six months old at the time, so all through the years we always celebrated your birthday together every early October. For close to a quarter of my lifetime you were my special friend, my sweetheart kitty.

    I am so sorry you became sick so fast. You were braver than I during those vet visits to find out what was happening to you. But you were succumbing to the illness faster than anyone could predict. It had only been a couple of short weeks since I first observed something was wrong before we knew for sure, and the only course of action left had to be done. I was certainly not coping well when I knew I had to make that hardest call I have ever made.

    The house now feels empty, and the days and nights are lonely since you had to go away. No more meowing for attention, no more hitting me with your “stubby” tail, no more singing along with me when I sang to you. For however much longer I have on this earth, I will miss you and cherish all the love and wonderful memories of the time we had together. See you at the rainbow bridge my Princess.

    Our hearts are aching and our home is empty without our beloved Fuzzball. He was 12 weeks old when we adopted him from the Henderson Animal Shelter. He has given us 19 wonderful years of cherished memories. We will miss his greeting us by the doorway when we come home, tapping us with his paw for our attention and his daily treats; most of all "nudging" us with his head to show his affections.

    My faithful companion for 11 years, the light of my life, my soulmate, my shadow. ❤️ I will miss my Baby Tank every minute of every day but I know it was his time. He was loved completely and so full of life, my protector and the one who helped me through life. Today, my home is quiet and empty and his presence is missed. His transition was peaceful and I am forever grateful to Dr. Alyssa for being there to help me get through the roughest day of my life. 💔🐾 This is Tank's very last picture, a treasure to me. My heart is shattered but I know I'll see my big boy again. Rest easy my sweet cuddle bear. Mama's right here if you ever need anything. ❤️

  • In Loving Memory Of Casey Kline

    Casey Beagle found me at the beagle rescue 8 or nine years ago. This little guy was a joy to my heart every minute. He was proud and pranced in such an affectionate way.
    Last evening he had a stroke and his back legs gave out. I nursed him through the night to no improvement. I called Dr Toby the hospice vet and at 1:45 today he went over that bridge so peacefully. I am profoundly saddened by this loss. Casey was about 14
    I will foster again soon. I will have Casey in my heart forever.

  • In Loving Memory Of Max

    We rescued Max in 2017. He was at the shelter the longest and I felt so bad for him. Max turned out to be the best cat we ever had! He was so sweet and took a piece of your heart with his soft purr. He loved to lay on our chest with his head on your shoulder. Max was our snuggle bunny. I will miss him so much but he is over the rainbow bridge running with all the other loved pets. Love you my little Max

  • In Loving Memory Of Noel

    Sweet cookie girl, nonie, Noel. Feom the moment we rescued you, you were the most wonderful dog. With a beautiful smile, you’d greet any and everyone, so happy to see them, strangers or not. There wasn’t a person you didn’t love. You were excited to go the vet. (Yes, you read that right.) You learned to love your little siblings. You never ran away, and those occasional times you’d slip past us, we just had to honk the horn on the car and you came running right back. You’re adoration for bananas and peanut butter was one of a kind. You’re ability in your senior years to accept and love Max and Mia, even Taz, was the most wonderful thing to watch. Your love for Princess was maybe not reciprocated, but seen by us. You were the most avid cuddler and blanket thief. Your concern when we were sad was unique! You were truly a one of a kind dog.

    We are going to miss the Scooter’s runs for pup cups. We will miss the butt button wags. We are going to miss the “Elvis”, snuggles, kisses, car rides, giving you “Holly” treats. We are going to miss, "did Santa come?", “go check your stocking” at Christmas. I am going to miss singing to and see your eyes close and enjoy the melody. We are going to miss everything about our sweet girl.

    She was the most one of a kind dog and we are so grateful she chose us. 12 years was not long enough with her, but she passed at home surrounded by her family. She lived a wonderful life and was the happiest girl. We will honor her by continuing to rescue animals and stay active in the rescue community.

    We love you little jingle puppy. 💚

  • In Loving Memory Of Bugsy

    Bugsy has been a member of our family for the incredible 19 years. We rescued him from the shelter when he was 5 weeks old. He had a great healthy life and never was sick until the last 2 weeks. 2 years ago he moved with us from Colorado to Las Vegas and loved every minute of it. It is heartbreaking to not have him follow us around and participate in our daily lives.. But we are forever grateful to Dr. Toby for helping Bugsy transition over the Rainbow in comfort and pain free. Enjoy your wings, our beloved baby . You can have all the ice cream you want now! ❤️❤️❤️

    Bandit was one of a kind, he was the biggest Shih Tzu at 21 lbs. He also had the ability to howl like a wolf! He loved to go for walks to the park, and dog park. He loved riding in the truck when we went RVing and slept on my lap as we drove. He also liked going to the lake and riding in the kayak. He was very observant and liked looking at the water fowl and even fish in the water. I miss him very much.

  • In Loving Memory Of Papillon

    The most beautiful butterfly got his wings today. 🦋

    We rescued Papillon from a drug house at 4 weeks old. He fit into my hand and we fed him puppy formula with a bottle for several weeks. They told us he was a "pocket pitt"; we would soon learn there was nothing small about this boy.

    For 12 years, Pap was with us through the best and worst of times. Despite how his breed is often labeled, he had the most gentle soul.

    A dog of leisure, napping was his favorite past time. He took his final rest this morning in our home, surrounded by so much love. 🤍

  • In Loving Memory Of Johnny

    My beautiful sweet greyhound Johnny came into my life in 2011 when he was just a very young ex-racer off a track in Tijuana. Johnny’s track name was “Orey”. He retired early and am so grateful he was available to become my boy Johnny, my soulmate. Johnny loved to lay on the couch, throw toys in the air to catch, run “zoomies” in the yard, walk for miles right beside me. Johnny became a therapy dog and would visit the elderly with me. He also attended many Greyhound Gatherings in Kanab, UT and greyhound picnics in Las Vegas where he lived. He was loved by everyone… a perfect gentleman and a funny soul all wrapped up in one. He loved to be near me day and night. We were all looking forward to his 14th birthday on August 15 but sadly on June 30 he left us. His presence is everywhere. Johnny was my sweet gentle one. My heart feels so broken without him but I am so grateful to have been the one he called Mom. Thank you my Johnny… 8-15-2008—-6-30-2022

    We called you wiggle butt because you were always so happy. You were about 2 when my Dad rescued you and you went on to be there for many moves, from Albuquerque, Pittsburgh, NorthCarolina and finally to Nevada.

    You traveled via car and plane to visit family and friends. You visited the Grand Canyon and Sedona plus many places in between. We had you at our wedding and added two more fur brothers and a human brother and sister to our pack.

    You also feasted on foods you shouldn’t have in your younger years like the infamous roast beef incident. Which still makes us laugh to this day.

    You will be missed and loved for eternity my sweet wiggle butt aka OG, Big Rich my sweet prince.

    Quentin was a giant, in more ways than his size. He would bury his head in my lap for "hugs" and was our protector. Many times, he didn't realize he was nearly 200 lbs and would try to be a lap dog. We miss him desperately, but know he's no longer in pain. We'll love you forever, my boo-boo❤️❤️

  • In Loving Memory Of Joey

    My Joey I used to call him little guy cuz he was so little we used to sing together. He used to love to sing. I’d say he’s the baby and he would just sing and sing at the top of his lungs. Oh and what maybe could have been 5 minutes seem like 15. Just listening to his beautiful little voice singing those happy notes and when we weren’t singing we were cuddling and spending time together. He’s my baby. He always will be. I will miss him terribly.

    My daily and I we used to have a little fun time together. He used to love to sing. Oh, he'd sing at the top of his lungs that happiest song just singing and singing and singing. I used to say to him he the baby and he would sing even louder. Oh he loved it and most of the time when we weren't singing we would just be cuddling together and enjoying each other's company. He's my baby and he always will be. I have the most beautiful memories in our 15 years together and I just want to say to my baby. God bless you my baby, my sweetheart. You've earned your wings. I'll see you on the other side 🙏💖

    My sweet, sweet boy. You were quite the opposite of what I thought a bulldog would be. From the day I picked you up you wouldn't stop running and playing with everything and everyone in sight. It only took about 6 years for you to relax and settle in (on the couch) just like I had imagined. I wouldn't trade those frisky years for anything, you surpassed all of my expectations and the adventures we shared will always continue to play in my mind. I miss your cuddles, I miss your love, I miss you more than words will ever be able to explain. I know you're not in pain anymore and I can't wait to meet you in Paradise to continue running and playing. I love you Boo Boo.

    My beautiful girl, you beat all the odds! The last of your litter to make it to the end. I will always remember the first day you came home and how you could fit in my hands. I will always remember how you would snuggle right into my arm at night until you were too big and too hot to cuddle for long periods. I will always remember your first thanksgiving and how excited you were to get a plate. I will always remember how upset Patron was that you grew bigger than him. I will always remember how happy you would be every time I would walk through the door. I will always remember waking up to your big dumb face in the mornings when I lived at home. I will remember it all because you are one of the best things that has ever happened to me. I’m so thankful for all the joy and happiness and comfort you brought me over these twelve short years…
    I find myself staring at your favorite spot to lay in…and I find myself disappointed that you're not there to wag your tail and smile at me. I hope you knew how much we loved you. I miss you every day.

    To our sweet little boy. You were just 6 months old when we brought you home. The breeder told us you were extremely friendly and would follow everyone around. Fortunately for us you were passed by because your eyes turned outward. We thought you were just perfect and delightful. You brought us so much joy. You followed us all around the house like a little dog. You loved everyone, even when repairmen came to the house to fix something you would be following them and giving out little cries for them to pet you. We miss you patting us on the head in the morning so you can get your pets or when we ate you were always waiting to get petted. Your dad misses you sitting on your favorite pillow next to him on the sofa watching tv. Our beautiful googly eye little boy our hearts are broken without you. We still can’t talk about you without crying. I cry as I write this. You meant so much to us! We love you Johnny Vegas!!!!

I am so grateful for Dr Toby and how his love was shared during this difficult time. It definitely made a difficult situation much easier. I miss my Bailey but I know that she is happy in Heaven with her mother and brother. I love you, Bailey!

  • In Loving Memory Of Junior James

    An Ode to Junior James
    By Rezadent

    Junior James, Junior James, you elder boy, my friend,
    You went in peace and quiet to the rainbow glen.
    You gonna find all your kitty friends and romp around and play
    As you journey, you will say ‘Humans, be okay!’

    But we miss you friend, we will sing you happy songs
    You scampered right into one one six and said ‘I stay for long!’
    You had to be a badass hanging out in T-Park
    But You got afraid and needed shelter when you heard the pitbulls bark.

    And a boy said ‘hey, yes, come on in,
    I'll teach you some new tricks,
    Like fetch a toy and hide from Moe,
    Until it’s time for us to move and go.’

    Ya’ll grew up and moved out the hood to Shadow's Crest,
    Where one summer day, a Queen arrived named Goob,
    She had her babes in record heat and doubted they’d survive,
    But Woman Wilz and Human Jeeves kept the Runt alive.

    Wasn’t long before two Bros came in out of the cold,
    Feral Boys were super scared and anything but bold,
    But Woman Wilz and Human Jeeves tamed them both with food,
    And now they have crowded in, like You, forever and for good.

    Junior, you still be aloof, but might allow a pet,
    Snugged up near the keyboard,
    As safe as you can get,
    You love the Human, that’s for sure, and never cause a tussle,
    Chunka, Fivah, Sixah, Goob, they don’t have your muscle,
    Cuz you were the elder of them all, and now you have departed,
    Left us Humans, sad with love but not so heavy hearted.

    You found us all and it’s all good, you brought us, Junior, joy!
    Thank you Junior, thank you Cat Gods, thank you, Elder Boy.

  • In Loving Memory Of Teddy Boy

    In 2008 My daughter and I went to the pet store to hopefully see what puppy my sister and her husband will buy. When we got there they had already left with their new puppy. All the puppies were being carried by interested buyers except one- the biggest one. We were standing there looking at that one puppy left in the cage wondering what type of dog. The seller asks us if we want to see it and proceeded to bring the puppy out. My daughter did not want to carry it so the puppy was given to me to carry. When that puppy looked up at me with his big black round eyes I couldn’t resist and said to my daughter “I’m buying him” I didn’t care the price. I knew I needed to have him. From that point on everything was about “Teddy”. Everyone loved him. He was naughty, had a great personality, territorial, loves to eat vegetables and fruits, loving and sweet. We moved from Hawaii to Las Vegas in 2009. He went on a few road trips with us. Hiked up the mountain with my son and enjoyed the parks.
    In 2021 his health started to decline. His eyesight was going blind. In 2022 we found out that he has 4 cancers in his body. We decided to euthanize him at home where he feels safe, familiar and loved. This was the hardest decision of my life. It was a very sad day for me. Dr Toby gave us some kind words that was needed to be heard. A few days later I received a greeting card in the mail from Dr Toby with kind words about Teddy. Receiving this card means a lot to me. Teddy was my best friend in those years when I was single. He would be waiting and looking out the window the same time everyday until I arrive home from work. I miss him so much.

  • In Loving Memory Of Sydney

    Yesterday the angels (with Dr. Tunnard’s help) came to take my darling Sydney to heaven. I am heartbroken and devastated but so thankful this smart, feisty, brave, loyal, absolutely beautiful girl came into my life.

    Sydney was the dog I always dreamed of having since I was a kid. When I first saw her at 6 weeks old, playing with her siblings, I knew she was the one. For more than 16 years she’s been my best friend and constant companion. We worked cattle together, played at the beach, and until recently she always went out with me when I rode my horses. This loving girl was my protector and slept next to my bed (sometimes in the bed) every night. Sydney has been through so much with me, from living in different places, relationships, jobs, good times and bad. I cannot imagine my life without her.

    I know Sydney enjoyed her retirement here in Las Vegas, especially pool time with my husband and I. I’ll never “get over” Sydney but hopefully in time I’ll be able to move forward…and the thought of her will bring more smiles than tears.

    Sydney, thank you for everything. You are the best dog I’ve ever had, or ever will have. I love you my darling girl. I’ll meet you and Dino at the Bridge. 💓

  • In Loving Memory Of Mama Kitty

    It has been a week since our Mama Kitty went over the Rainbow Bridge. I still listen for her ra-ow in the morning and look for her sweet face. She came to us from the Lied Animal Shelter in July of 2008 as a foster kitty with 3 babies. I had originally named her Alicia after Alicia Keyes (black and white, like piano keys) but she was such a wonderful mommy to her kittens that we just wound up calling her Mama Kitty. She had just had her spay surgery when I brought her and her kittens home to foster and in the next few days she became very ill. With the loving and dedicated help from Dr. Paetz at Pecos-Russell Animal Hospital we were able to get her healthy again. During the time she was recovering she still nursed her babies so lovingly even when it was painful to do so. One by one her baby male kittens were adopted. My plan was to find her a good home and then I realized she had already found one so she became our first and only foster failure. She learned to live with our 3 dogs and became a great part of the family. She was an indoor kitty but was allowed outside on the patio when we were outside. Then she would get up on the wall and run around with me chasing after her yelling to get down right now. She did, when she was ready, laughing all the time. Who says cats don't have a sense of humor? She also had to learn that it wasn't funny to launch herself off of the dresser on top of daddy at 2 am. Several years ago she started to need meds and subcutaneous fluids to stay healthy. We tried to hard to take care of her to give her a happy and healthy life. After a while, this was no longer possible and Dr. Toby came to help ease her pain and suffering. Thank you Dr. Toby and Nevada Pet Hospice for your kind, dignified and compassionate care, it made a world of difference to our Mama Kitty and to us. Rest in peace Mama Kitty. You are missed every day.

  • In Loving Memory Of Kona

    Our beautiful ( English lab) Kona Wona girl was the most loving gentle dog our family could ever of imagined to love and enjoy almost 15 years ago when our then toddler boys picked her out as a Christmas gift. She grew up with them and soon became the love of our lives. We are so grateful to have had her all these years especially having survived Parvo her first weekend home with us.
    You have left a big emptiness in our hearts and home but we will cherish all the wonderful memories forever. RIP sweet baby girl, we love you forever!

  • In Loving Memory Of Giles

    My sweet boy and Zen Baby. He loved to snuggle with his head on my chest and shoulder for hours. His days were spent in the sun surrounded by hummingbirds and flowers and snuggling with the other dogs in the evening. He begged to wear sweaters, even the ugly Christmas sweater I bought him last year, and he absolutely lit up while playing with children. We all feel his absence deeply and will always miss him. Thank you for choosing us, sweet Giles.

  • In Loving Memory Of Pie

    This is our wonderful cat Pie. She passed peacefully this past Sunday with loving help from Dr. Toby close to her 15th birthday. As many of you pet lovers know, the house loses a little bit of it’s soul and lifeblood when a pet moves on. It’s helpful and cathartic to write about these moments for sure, so thank you for the indulgence of reading this.
    We love you Pie and would not change one moment from birth until doing our very best to make you beyond comfortable during these last few months of uncomfortableness. Always adored ❤️ Love eternally from Michele & Steve

    We first met Sweet Kota bear on February 4, 2011 and from day one she stole our hearts.. She was a very silly and mischievous puppy. Such a fun 10.5 years we got to spend with our baby.. She protected our children, our family and all the other animals that came through our home.. The loss of this wonderful soul is almost unbearable, however; we take comfort knowing she is in heaven running like a puppy, out of pain and with her NoNo Vinny.. Thank you my beautiful fuzzy butt, for always loving and protecting us..We will love and miss you forever! 🌈💖🐶

in loving memory of Gracie

I first saw Gracie at the pet store…she was perched on the highest cat tree in the kennel, a little queen overseeing her kingdom. The moment I walked in to say hi to her, she immediately jumped down, ran to me, and climbed into my lap, purring as loud as can be. I knew that our bond was sealed from that point on.

She gave me 15+ years of unconditional love, seeing me through a lot of ups and down. Moves, a marriage and divorce, deaths in the family, crazy work travel. She was always there, only wanting to love and be loved. She was one of a kind, and I will miss her snuggles and loud purring.

in loving memory of Junior

I had started dating a man that the first time he came to my house was on New Years Eve. Junior instantly didn’t like him but he did do anything, right away. The man and I had sat on my couch and each time the man tried to get close to me Junior would wedge his way between us. Then Junior just got fed up. He climbed up on the couch a laid his head in my lap and his butt pointed at the man. All of a sudden the man got a funny look on his face. Junior was passing gas at him. The man left. Junior called it right. Much later I found out what a terrible person he was. Junior was protecting me that night and trying to tell me, “no mom, I don’t like him”. Junior and his 2 brothers and sister were rescued from a horrible situation went they were just babies. We adopted Junior and his sister Tasha. They had been with us since they were 9 weeks old. They are both gone now, but thanks to Dr. Toby, the process (which is never easy, no matter what) they both went peacefully at home surrounded by the people who loved them. I cannot express the gratitude we feel for this gift. Thank you Dr. Toby and your great staff.

Mac loved everyone with all his heart. He loved to play frisbee, slept, eat all the steak & bacon he could get his paws on, go for walks, and swimming. He was the protector of our family. He was amazing with all kids. He was the wise old man who seemed to always have all the answers. He was always right where he knew he needed to be. He knew what we needed from him even when we did not know it. He was the best dog anyone could ask for.

in loving memory of Frankfort

Frankfort came into our lives right before the pandemic began. We were going to the pet store to get food for his fur-sibling Clover, and they were having an adoption day. We had a meet and greet with him, he was tense and smelled like pee, he just wanted to be loved and held. We dropped off Clover at home and came back to adopt Frankfort, and the look in his eyes when he realized he was coming home is something we will never forget. He was already a senior dog, they found him wandering the street, so we don’t know how old he was or what his life was before he met us, but I know his last couple of years were filled with love and happiness. Frankfort became my shadow, following me everywhere. I could never ask for a better dog

His health issues started a few months after we got him. At first, it was masticatory muscle myositis, we got him on steroids and he made it through and recovered. Then, when I was 8 months pregnant, he became very ill very suddenly. His immune system was attacking his kidneys, and the doctors couldn’t identify the cause. He spent a few days at the ER and came home with a grim prognosis and some medicine to slow the damage. He rebounded, and for a while he was stable with the help of medicine, monthly labs, and specialized food. But last month, I noticed the symptoms creeping their way back. We increased the dose of his medicine, and then the damage would catch up; it was a race we were starting to lose. Last week, things had gotten back to where we had started from. He couldn’t eat or drink, he was lethargic, and he wasn’t going to the bathroom. The vets confirmed that he was in full-blown kidney failure. Even when he was so sick, he would still shakily follow me everywhere I went. We decided to make the heartwrenching decision to end his suffering and to pass with peace and dignity. I am so glad that we were able to give him peace. He passed at home with a smile on his face. I do not feel sorry for him, I know he is in a better place. I am only sorry for us, who have to live our lives without his presence.

Frankfort loved tennis balls and stuffed animals. He loved food and had a voracious appetite, there were very few things he wouldn’t eat. He was a very good host, he loved people and having guests at the house; more people to shower him with affection. He was a staunch protector of the house, barking at any and every perceived threat.

We miss you so much Frankfort.

in loving memory of Red

In June of 2018 I got a call from a rescue that an older female cattle dog needed fostering. She was coming out of an abusive situation. Red is her name. She was a girl that needed so much help. After fostering her for seven months and getting the help and surgery she needed, I adopted her. She stole my heart. Fun, feisty, smart, loyal and always my shadow. She made me smile. Red loved to play ball and hang out with her senior dog siblings. I had her for almost four years and am so grateful she shared her beautiful self with me. To honor Red, I am looking to adopt another senior cattle dog very soon. Red will forever be a part of me.

in loving memory of Trixie

In February 2013, a SUV hit Trixie. She had a concussion and hearing loss. She adopted us in April 2013. She looked fawn-like with her long slim legs and sweet little face. She was horrible on walks. She took forever sniffing everything, while managing to bark and snarl at anything that came in her line of vision. I understood it was out of fear, so I never reprimanded her, but would always calm her down. Finally, she learned anyone visiting us was safe. She became friendly and loving, always wanting to be as close as possible to her humans. She was our Alpha, but was never bossy to the other dogs that came through her house. I wish she had liked my cat, but she mostly ignored her. Clearly, she was a breeding dog, so I found myself calling her my “Little Momma.” She loved snuggles, but mostly belly rubs. She loved to eat anything, anytime. She was my baby girl. We all loved her so much, including her dog brother and dog cousin. We will remember her always and miss her forever.

Spock was the most harmless and gentle soul. We loved him like a son and he loved us back. He was fighting cancer and never let it show. By the time he was diagnosed it had taken over and he was not the same (but still he found courage every morning to argue with me in the kitchen for his favorite boiled eggs) He left us too soon but his memories will stay with us for as long as we live. We miss you, Spock 🖖

in loving memory of Gizmo Gardner

I met Gizmo before she ever opened her eyes to the world. She was born as a barn cat but destined to become a beloved princess. We spent 17 and a half years together, and I treasure every moment with my sweet yet feisty girl. When I met my husband 10 years ago, we all became a family.

We had a plethora of adventures together that I will treasure forever. Even her death was beautiful and precious, and this was a true gift. She held on so we could pet her all night while she rested mostly peacefully before the time came to say goodbye and close her eyes once more. I can’t fathom any other way and am tremendously grateful to Dr. Toby for helping us usher her across the rainbow bridge.

Endless love to our darling girl,
Mom and Dad

in loving memory of Ayla Frank

From Ayla to this community:

I have been blessed so much with my time on this earth. I loved my family, and my friends and every stranger I met on earth.

I howled because you laughed. I wagged my tail when you smiled. I comforted you when you cried. I kissed your babies and nuzzled your children when I met them. I was a faithful companion to my loving family in every way I could be.

The last month has been rough as I got sick and couldn’t live with the joy that I was accustomed to. As the days went by, my sickness got worse. I maintained my outlook and love for all my humans even as I lost mobility. It hurt to see my humans hurt for me, but they endured and were as faithful to me in my time of need as I was to them my entire life. We were one another’s most cherished blessings.

I am grateful for the thousands of prayers I received from all of you as my humans documented my saga and their sorrow to close friends, family, and complete strangers. The support kept our spirits high, even as my quality of life declined.

Ultimately I must go sometime and my family has made the choice to send me home before my pain becomes too great and my spirit weakens. Thank you for all of the love. I have felt each and every prayer and will carry them with me as my spirt ascends.

May 18 at 9AM I went to heaven. I informed the creator of all of your love kindness. I am greeted by all of your past pets and tell them you love them. I will welcome the new angels as they ascend to be with me in our spiritual residence and comfort and guide them to stay in your hearts

God bless you all for sending my family your love. My spirit is in a new exciting journey and transition.

in loving memory of Dallaz

Dallaz was born in Dallas, TX. I flew from Las Vegas to adopt him. My husband raised him for the first 6 months while I finished college classes in LV. I moved back to TX and he quickly became an inside dog despite my husbands request. Dallaz was very obnoxious at a young age. He would always run away, break the blinds to see outside or chew the door frames. No matter what he did I couldn’t stay mad at that adorable face. He would tell us when it was time for bed by getting next to the stairs and barking at us until we complied (he wouldn’t go to sleep without us). He was there to announce both of my pregnancies and would check on the kids at night before going to bed. Nothing could ever replace the soul that this dog had! Dallaz you are loved and missed by so many people! We love you forever❤️

in loving memory of Kintaro

Kintaro (means Golden Boy) came into our lives when he was 4 years old. He had a lonely beginning. His previous owner kept him in the car 12 hours a day while he worked. Kintaro quickly bonded with my 3 children, husband and me. He became my constant companion, following me from room to room, even around the kitchen island, always in his line of sight. He loved his 3 walks a day where he could be outside, not confined. Kintaro would take his time and sniff all the interesting smells, lift his face up to the sun and liked the feel of the breeze blowing by. He also loved to just lie down in the shade of a tree and relax.
He reminded me of Ferdinand the Bull, a children’s book about a bull who didnt want to bullfight. He just wanted to sit under a tree and smell flowers.
Kintaro was a sweet, gentle soul. I believe he was our angel wrapped in fur. As I’ve told others, the best bumper sticker I’ve ever seen said, “May I always be the person my dog thinks I am.” Dogs are totally devoted to us and love us unconditionally. In order to be worthy of their adoration, we need to be the best version of ourselves. They make us better. Thereby, they make our lives better.
My dear sweet angel Kintaro, until we meet again, run free.
Eternal love, Mom, Dad, Kelli, Ryan, and Karli

In July 2014 I found this little guy at the local SPCA. He had been found wandering the city no collar, no chip, no one looking for him. They guessed him 10 years old, still I fell for his handsome little face. He needed a lot of TLC he was in rough shape ( horrible teeth, heart murmur, under nourished from parasites and a little limp on his back left leg) but this tiny man was strong and brave! The 7 years 7 months he shared with us were a blessing that filled our house and our hearts with love. He may be small but he left an enormous impact on our lives and we will miss him everyday.

in loving memory of Riggs

Our story begins in late 2017. We had lost our Kati in the Spring of 2017 and decided maybe we could look at fostering. We joined the Southern Nevada Boston Terrier Rescue, and we were tasked with possibly fostering you. You had a great foster mom, but she thought you would do better in a home with a yard and more room to wander. Your story pre rescue, your owner wanted a purse dog, at 35+ lbs you made it difficult to be a “purse dog”. (Lucky for us.) From the first moment I saw you I knew you were coming home with us that day. You were a senior somewhere between 8-10 yrs you had a frosty face and were as sweet as can be. Your foster dad fell for you the moment he laid eyes on you. When we brought you home your Gma was visiting from Canada, she wasn’t quite sure what to do with this tank who, for your size was very nimble and would launch into her lap haha.
We had you for about a week when someone put in to adopt you. I was so sad when we took you to that home visit, already I couldn’t image giving you up. The visit didn’t go well, (again lucky us). The little dog in the home wanted to eat you. Here you are this 35 lb sweet old man crawling up your dad to hide from and get as far away from the little beast as you could. We shared our concerns, and you didn’t have to go back 😊 and we became foster failures.
You came as Wrigley but we changed it officially to Riggs because well….that is sort of how you were built, you were solid as a rock and went where you wanted to and did what you wanted to. It was a good thing you were deaf because you also had many other names ie, Big Daddy Diesel, Bubba, Mr Magoo and my favorite Boo. From day one you made yourself right at home.
You could be standoffish, and you could be a snuggle bugg, whatever the mood was, it was all done on your time and your terms. Never ever was there a nasty side of you. Everyone who met you, loved you. We got the best of our previous boys wrapped in one solid frosty package.
You weren’t a great traveler but, you did well on short trips, you would sit like a little human in the seat looking out the window giving this look like “I belong here, and these are my peeps chauffeuring me around”
The summer of 2021, things started to change you were slowing down. Lab work from the vet showed moderate Kidney failure she thought we might have a month or two left, I was set to go home to see your Gma and wasn’t sure you would make it until I got back. We agreed to try oral medications and ….THEY WORKED 😊 December all your values were dropping, still elevated but better. Woo hoo.
January comes and we notice your legs are getting weak, it’s harder for you to jump into your favorite chair (Yes, he had a chair that I am sure he thought we bought just for him and was quite put out if he found us sitting in it, haha.) You showed no signs of being in pain, you still had a decent appetite, and you were still wanting to play with your fur sister, but, We knew our time was running short.
This past Saturday you made it clear you were tired, and the time had come, we made the call and on Sunday February 20th the day your Gpa would have turned 95 you earned your wings to cross the Rainbow Bridge. As we waited for the vet to come to the house, we could see your spirit to live had already left there was no sparkle in your eyes, they looked so tired and there were no more smiles for us. When the vet arrived, you sprang off my lap and greeted him like an old friend as if you were saying “thank you, I know you are here to help”
You left us peacefully and with dignity and…. You took with you a huge piece of your dad’s and my hearts. Until we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge. Love mom

in loving memory of Lovely

Our beautiful Lovely was such a wonderful addition to our family. When she first arrived, it was a huge adjustment as adding a dog to our family was not on my to-do-list. From the very beginning, her spunky attitude, chill personality, and fearless behavior warmed our hearts.

Lovely was a part of our family for 15 glorious years. Through the ups and downs, she was always there. It was really hard to say goodbye; however, we knew it was time to release Lovely to her final resting place. She will forever be a permanent fixture in our family. She was my baby. She was my best girlfriend.

With an eternal love, we wish you peace and know that you will always be LOVED beyond infinity. 🤎

God sure knew what he was doing when he made a dog. My best friend got her wings on 2/20/22 with the help of Dr. Toby. We can’t thank him enough. Until we meet again my sweet and sassy Bella girl. You are Forever in my heart! 💕🐾

in loving memory of DUKE

Duke lived a valiant life for almost nine years. Chosen by my past husband, Bob, he picked Duke out of the breeders litter because he looked like he would be the largest – and was at his 110# passing weight.

He was trained to protect, but also was taken to the dog park to socialize. He didn’t share well when it came to throwing his flying toys and chasing after them…he would fend off other dogs and always return to me with his prize.

Duke was not really a water dog, and once on a trip to our local dam, he was close to the edge barking at the floating ducks when he decided to give chase. He found out immediately that he was in over his head and quickly “dog paddled” back to shore – leaving the ducks to go their merry way.

He was afraid of approaching storms and came to me for protection, holding him tight and offering soothing words. It would pass only after the thunder and lightning were gone. Hence, fireworks had the same effect on him. So, on the 4th, he and I would head for the bedroom, with the door closed, turn the tv to a high volume, and I would feed him treats as a distraction.

He was a big dog and when the neighborhood dogs would venture by, on leash, he would bark and scare them. So, once aware of where Duke lived, their owners would walk on the other side of the street. Duke was bored with that and didn’t even bark. He usually saw the dogs when yard work was the task and he was secured on his leash.

He loved car rides. And because of his size, he took up the back seat, but liked sticking his head up front for the a/c air. But, he was trained well, and when told to get back, he did. Then after a bit, he would sneak his head up front again.

We took Duke on hikes to Mt. Charleston. Once in the parking lot of the Inn, I had hold of his leash, but the asphalt was slick with ice and when a small dog was yapping across the lot, it got Duke’s attention and he began to run to the other dog – pulling me with him, or should I say dragging me. It was everything I could do to stay on my feet, but Bob came to my rescue and grabbed Duke just in time before I fell on the ice, and before Duke got to the dog!

Fun times having him as part of our family…

in loving memory of MUSHU

My Angel Mushu was born and adopted from the Maui shelter. We moved to Vegas in 2018. He was such an amazing best friend and one of my children. He was so intelligent and we knew each other so well. I talked to him constantly and he would respond back. It’s so quiet and empty without him. I feel so lost without him here with me. I know he’s not suffering anymore and that he’s in Heaven with my son Cory. I love you so much Mushu thank you for being my best friend. Goodbye my sweet Angel.

in loving memory of Kitty

My baby boy Kitty, my Peanut. Indoor outdoor cat, who adopted me after being abandoned in the subdivision. We reset his microchip, and I said he chose me and our home every day. 16 years with him as a door greeter, social butterfly, garden helper, sunny spot lover, surgery recovery snuggler, and the best return to college study buddy ever. Thank you to Dr. Watson for helping me keep a promise that he’d always return home from the vet (wonderful team) and he’d be safe at home. He’s no longer in pain, I’m just holding on to the best memories. It’s just so quiet today.
Below is my absolute favorite picture of us, taken by my colleagues as we studied for national exams. Just so… him. Love you Kitty.

To my beautiful Tortie,

My heart aches without you, Lucci. Nineteen years ago you chose me and changed my life forever. I am so thankful for your love and companionship. I’ve watched you grow from a curious and playful baby-girl into that beautiful and wise Senior Kitty.
You’ve brought your dad and me so much laughter and joy that we thank you for all the wonderful memories. I will miss your ritual of morning brushes on the vanity and you snuggling by my side every evening. It was the perfect way to start and end our days.

I called you my Earth Angel but now with your wings you are my Angel in Heaven and we can’t wait to see you again, my Love.

in loving memory of Roxy

Once again, the cliche of “being the best dog ever” will be used again, as Roxy was truly the best dog ever. She came into our home as the “runt” of the litter but that never deterred her at all. She had drive, ability and spunk that would match any of her brothers and sisters. From the beginning she had a scare of squeezing under the gate at our house to begin an adventure of wandering around the neighborhood exploring the sights and smells of the world her first day home. Causing a search from her frantic dad for several hours, only to be found in a neighbor’s yard smelling the flowers and enjoying treats from a sweet older woman. She then began her obsession with a ball that never ended, even up into her final days. I can still hear the thumping of her tail on the floor as she impatiently waited for it to be thrown. She enjoyed adventures in the desert with her older sister, Bailey, sniffing everything around, running up ravines and hills and anxiously waiting to see a rabbit they both try to chase after, even though the they never could quite catch up. She then became the older sister to a new dog Maddie, though she wasn’t very thrilled at the idea at first. Eventually she would begin to show the new dog the rules of the house and keeping her in check when need be. Though the family’s heart said it wasn’t the time for you to leave us in our head we k ow we made the right decision. You are now enjoying the grass and fields near the Rainbow Bridge with your older sister waiting for the day we can be reunited again. Until that day, please know that your family will always miss you and love you and look forward to hearing the tail thump again waiting for a ball throw. We’ll be sure to bring plenty of treat and toys when that day comes.

in loving memory of Shadow

Shadow, our best good boy. Lovingly referred to as “Shadow Buddy” by your papa, “Shadow My Love” or “My Boyfriend” by your mama, and even your vet (Dr. T) nicknamed you a “Bad Ass Super Dog”. You were loved more than it was ever possible to show- but we tried our best to give you all our love all the time and to give you the best, most adventurous & fun life a dog could have. You were the best guard dog, even if you mostly protected us from other dogs – especially that pesky dog next door. You protected your little sister Luna, and she misses you so much. You & Luna were inseparable – littermates who only spent a few days apart when you were pups. It was destiny that you joined our family (thankfully the first family who reserved you changed their mind). With you, our family became whole.
Your favorite things were: food, meat, rides in the truck, going camping, playing, running laps around the yard- barking, hackling & “killing” toys when other dogs walked by our house, swimming, treats, belly rubs, head scratches, getting brushed, toys, taking warm showers, puppy nap time, Grandma & Grandpa (your 2nd favorite humans), Kitty, Luna, and of course your mom & dad. Your least favorite things were: loud noises, 4th of July (but you were smart & always found safety – either in our master bath shower, or in between mama’s legs), New Years Eve, being apart from your sister & parents.
You were a big goofy cuddly puppy who always had a sweet personality. You were obedient and never got into trouble – you stayed by our side, always watching out for us (your self-imposed duty to always protect us – especially your mama), and you did so until your very last day on earth.
Sadly (devastatingly), you got an osteosarcoma diagnosis in April 2020, and we made the tough decision to amputate & do chemo to give you the best shot at a longer life. You were only expected to live 3-6 months with that treatment, but you defied the odds and handled being a tri-pod dog like a champ. it didn’t slow you down one bit – you could still run, guard, swim and do all the fun things we always did. We discovered your cancer had metastacized into your lungs just before Christmas this year, and sadly, the best we could do for you was palliative care, and to give you all our love and soak up all the love you had for us in return for as long as you stayed comfortable and happy.
You carried yourself regally, you were a noble soul, always brought us joy and made us laugh, and guided (herded) us when we needed to stop and play. Everyone who knew you fell in love with you. You were our most special boy, and we will love you and miss you forever.
Love, Mama, Papa & Luna

You were the best most amazing dog ever. I know people say that, but it truly was the truth. I wish we would have shown you that more towards the end. I hope you felt loved. You deserved all the love in the world. You lived such a long life and we are so grateful for you. Thank you for your selfless love and always being around us. Thank you for reminding me to do my loving while they are living. Thank you for literally being the best dog there ever was and being a part of my life. I miss you so very much already. I will love you always.

Brutus was our big mush. He couldn’t get close enough to you and was generous with kisses and love. Saved from a terrible beginning, he suffered his share of struggles, but we did all we could to give him the best life ever and boy, did he love it. It was an honor to have him in our lives. He left us unexpectedly right before Christmas and left a huge hole in our hearts. We will love your forever. Go run free. <3

in loving memory of Haley

She was an elderly neighbor’s dog I walked. Haley barked happily and ran to me. I bent , and she licked my face. “Give me some of those stinky kisses,” I would say. She had dental problems, and I have sobbed loudly all week because I feared Haley suffered.

Sunday, December 19, she was going around in circles on the patio. Monday, she lay motionless but still alive. We are all old, and poor. Finally, the owner’s daughter took Haley to the vet. She was euthanized on the 13th. That same Monday, an ambulance took the 78 year old owner to the hospital with covid. The woman will survive, and her son lives at that mobile home also.

I needed some way to have a house call. Antibiotics from early November worked little, but I needed a diagnosis. I pray we did not let her suffer by mistake.

You have taught us so much, your companionship, your loyalty, and your unconditional love. We will never stop thinking about you. Your memories will live on forever my baby. We LOVE LOVE LOVE YOU SO MUCH! Sleep peacefully my sweet angel. Until we meet again…. Xoxoxoxo

in loving memory of Ricky

Ricky our beautiful brave boy was chased by a neighborhood dog one day , he ran up a huge tree we had in our front yard and would not come down. The whole neighborhood came out to help and with a long pole from a pool cleaner we coaxed him down and back into the house. He was a stray cat that I was feeding but loved to venture out even after we rescued him. After this incident he was a much happier indoor cat who loved hanging out in the sunroom and playing with his other cat buddies. We miss him terribly. He was always cautious of strangers but loved us and trusted us to care for him. The house feels empty without him. He brought us so much joy and comfort. Rest In Peace our handsome boy Ricky.

in loving memory of Tabouli

Tabouli transitioned peacefully the only way she knew how-elegantly and in style, surrounded by beauty and the love and warmth of her parents. She chose me as her mama 11 years ago when I was “window shopping” at the Anti-Cruelty Society in Chicago. As the young girl who was eyeing kittens nearby proclaimed “I think you two were made for each other”. Nothing was more true. Tabouli enriched my life from the start, charming everyone who met her. Her gentle, sweet presence brought me more joy than I ever knew was possible, eventually becoming the ultimate daddy’s girl when her papi came into her life 9 years ago. From Chicago to Iowa to road tripping to her last and favorite home in the sunny desert, I’m forever grateful for the special memories we created together. I honor your spirit.

May you lounge on your eternal throne like the sun goddess you are, get lost in french jazz, receive an ever-lasting amount of brushes and lint-rolls and enjoy sardines to your heart’s content.

God’s given us years of happiness here
Now we must part
And as the angels come and call for you
The pains of grief tug at my heart
Oh my darling
My darling
My heart breaks as you take your long journey
Oh the days will be empty
The nights so long without you my love
And when god calls for you I’m left alone
But we will meet in heaven above

Our guy Cisco…we’re all heartbroken and miss you dearly. Thanks for all the love you gave us and for putting up with the training classes when you were just a little guy. I remember how proud you made us when you earned your CH title. All of our out-of-town family members were so impressed with how gentle and loving you were…you did that! I remember how you always snuck into Sandra’s room to lay on her bed and how you wouldn’t move even when I caught you…you would just hold your head up as if to say “can’t you see I’m sleeping”. I still never figured out how you opened the door. No need to worry about Sasha we’ll take good care of her for you…our home will never be the same…thanks for the memories.

in loving memory of Greta

My Dearest Greta,
Forever wouldn’t have been long enough with you, my Girl. I didn’t know when we met almost 3 years ago, that I was as lonely as I was. Believe it or not, I had dreamt of a dog like you, and then unexpectedly, like a bull in a china shop, you barged in and took up all the space in my home and my heart. By simply being yourself, you filled my heart with so much joy and love, and that is where I will keep you forever, deep in my heart.
Thank you for reminding me of the simplest pleasures – early morning walks, dew-soaked grass, light breezes, shady spots under a tree. Thank you for helping me to slow down, for showing me how to soak things in. Thank you for making me laugh every single day. Thank you for your unconditional love, for your butt wiggles, and for your giant paws. Thank you for the many sun-soaked naps we shared by the pool. Thank you for the sweetest snoring sounds that rocked me to sleep every night. Thank you for your toothless smiles. Thank you for the countless happy memories I now have. Thank you for finding me, and for rescuing me from a funk I didn’t even know I was in.
If I could do it all over again, I would, and I wouldn’t change a thing, except perhaps finding each other sooner. Rest easy Baby Girl. I’ll see you again. You are the sweetest soul I’ve ever known. You are, and forever will be, my greatest and most precious love. I love you forever Greta Girl.
All my love,
Lindsay

in loving memory of Ceci

Dear Ceci❤️

We rescued our beloved Ceci from the humane society animal shelter in Utah. She actually picked me snd my son out as her new family, as we walked through all the cages filled with abandoned animals. She barked so hard to get our attention.

When we brought you home, you pranced around in the yard like a little show horse. Your smile could light up a room. You were always so gentle with other people and other animals.

You were our little fury speed bump in the kitchen too! Always underfoot when someone was preparing food, knowing there was a Scooby snack in sight. And you somehow made it known that a closed door was never an option in the house. You demanded free patrol access as you followed us everywhere… and I mean everywhere… ensuring we were in sight of your constant protection… even when most of your teeth were missing and you were looking more and more like snaggel puss with your tongue hanging out to the side when you smiled.

Even when Daddy went in the backyard to clean the pool, you went on puppy patrol. Surveying the yard by walking all around the pool, ending on the patio furniture curled up by my feet with a blanket.

You were a great sister too to Misha and the boys . Always taking a backseat, and allowing Misha to steal the attention.

It was so painful to see you so sick. We loved you so much and kept hoping things would turn around. But in the end we saw the peace that finally came over you as you slipped away and into the arms of my dearly departed Dad.

Together you will be able to walk, run, and see the amazing heavens above without pain or old age to hinder you.

Run as fast as the wind my dear Ceci..”Ceci is soooo fast”. We love you. Until we meet again..💔🙏❤️

I originally bought you for a friend as a birthday gift and when she told me she didn’t want a cat there was no way I was giving this little 3 month old fluff ball away. You and I conquered life together ❤️ You were by my side as we moved over 15 times in 3 different states. You always adjusted to your new surroundings immediately just knowing we were together. I will miss our cuddles, catnip parties, backyard bird watching, cat dances, and the love you always showered me with. You never took crap from your pitbull brothers and always kept them in check on who was queen bee in the house. I was blessed with 16 years full of adventure and love with you and I look forward to seeing you again one day sweetheart

in loving memory of Hendrix

I grew up as a military brat and wasn’t allowed pets because we always lived on base and my parents didn’t want to deal with one. When I met my future husband we both fell in love with our friends dog and swore that if we ever had a chance to give him a good home that would be the only dog we wanted. Lo and behold our friends went thru a bad patch shortly thereafter and divorced and neither could take the dog. Therein begins my love affair with my sweet boy Hendrix. He was so many things to me: my first child, my protector, my confidant (my husband and I were both active duty AF so deployments are real), but most importantly he was a dream come true that I had held from childhood. The dream of having a dog to love, protect, and cherish as long as I could. Hendrix was an adventurer, when my husband was away due to a TDY or deployment, Hendrix was always by my side. I was told this stage of life is difficult because you start to question what kind of life you gave your dog…..I have looked deep and can honestly say I have no regrets. Hendrix was my gentle giant who experienced a full life of adventure, really good food, fun, but most importantly love. He left a legacy behind and nobody else can fill it. My heart will heal with time but he will always be my fierce protector, and my gentle giant. I love you so much Hendrix…..wait for Adaline for me…..

Stretch had the sweetest face, cutest little howls, and funniest tail wag out there. He could make anyone’s day better just by looking at them with his big brown eyes. He was a central part of our home, mainly because he took over everything: the couch, our new blankets/throws, and even our bed. 🙂 He showed us unconditional love and an unlimited amount of snuggles. All he wanted in return was to be held and maybe a few peanut butter dog cookies. We will miss him everyday and were so blessed to have him in our lives-even though it seemed far too short.
We love you, little buddy. You’ll always be our favorite sweet guy.

Beau Darlington was adopted from the San Pedro Animal Shelter in November 2011 at 10-12 weeks. There is dedicated team of volunteers who trap and rescue feral kittens in the south bay area. He was a mix of tabby and Siamese cat, which is common for feral kittens in San Pedro, CA.
He quickly bonded with my male cat, a black Manx named Pugsley and they played and napped together as two good friends. My parent’s cat elderly cat Rudi joined us for two years and Beau made him feel welcomed and they enjoyed their cat tree time together.
In 2016, I adopted a mini cat Midgette at 4 1/2 pounds and she and Beau, now 22 lbs, were a Mutt and Jeff team with Midgette always trying to get the upper paw over Beau.
I am glad Beau came my way in this world and I know he enjoyed a good, happy life in my care.

Pooper loved to sunbathe, we would catch him spending hours outside just laying in the sun. On his last day, he spent the morning doing his favorite past time and soaked up some last sun rays before crossing the rainbow bridge. He lived a long, playful, and spoiled life of 16 years and 3 days, and I hope he felt all the love we have for him throughout his life and in his last moments. I hope he’s doing zoomies now, with all his teeth back, eating all the guilt-free French fries he wants. We love you Poops! ❤️🐕

in loving memory of CJ Snygatto

Our precious bulldog CJ was the center of our world in our home for 11 years. He was a bundle of energy during his younger life who always kept us on our toes to keep up with him. As he matured he wasn’t quite as energetic, but he certainly found his voice as he was never shy about letting us know when he wanted his belly scratched or when he wanted a treat. He loved hanging out with us in the backyard and getting sun whenever he could. He passed one month ago today and his absence truly hurts every day. His positive energy and love always filled our hearts and our home. We have so many wonderful memories of CJ and we’ll always have those to hang onto in the future. But his loss has left a hole in both of our hearts that will last forever. We are truly blessed for CJ to have chosen us as his mommy and daddy. What a wonderful spirit and soul he had. We love you CJ and we’ll see you on the other side for your next belly scratch!

Love,
Mommy and Daddy

Dearest Mr. Puss Puss,
You brought us so much joy and you had a long life here on earth. Thank you so much for all the love and cuddles and laughter that you brought to our family. I hope you enjoyed your last years as king of the castle. We miss you my little one. See you on the rainbow bridge. I’ll meet you there.

in loving memory of Jazz

have to thank Dr. Toby! He is amazing, kind, caring… all superlatives apply to this guy! I have to include that most human funeral events are not as beautiful as they way he took care of my girl, Jazz and her Mom and I.

Thank you more than words can say Dr. Toby!

I’m including a puppy photo of Jazz… it shows her inner personality that she shared with us every day of her life! She was so loving and such fun to be with!

in loving memory of Jazz

I lost an amazing friend this past Friday, August 20, 2021. She was the daughter I never had, she will always be in my heart. She gave us 13 amazing years of her unconditional love. My beautiful standard poodle Jazz took her final breath at 6:30pm that night. I’m heartbroken.

Over the years of her beautiful life, Jazz was kind, loving, playful (she loved to play ball) and regal. She helped teach our other baby, 3 year old Maddie how to be a great dog. She was a family member who loved us all… even when my grandkids pulled her around by the ears! An amazing girl! She was also the Grande Dame of our dog park.

She didn’t come to greet me Friday morning for the first time ever, and I had the feeling she was in trouble. She’s been physically slowing down and appeared to be growing weaker for the last week or so. She laid in her favorite spot all day today as her breath became more and more shallow. I sat with her and rubbed her neck, behind her ears and belly (her favorite places to be rubbed), and talked about her life, all the wonderful things she did for me, and told her how much I love her. She passed quietly, peacefully and I believe, painlessly. No crying, no moaning, it’s almost like she just went to sleep and stopped breathing. I’m glad it was peaceful. A Grande Dame like Jazz should go peacefully and painlessly. I guess God must need her for something.

The hospice vet came at 8pm to discuss what we wanted to do and to take her safely to the crematorium.

This is the one of a kind dog that you never forget. I’m heartbroken.

Now my 3 year old Maddie is the lady of the house.

My Sophie girl was one in a million. I would have never made it through the last year without her. She was the light of our lives. Dr. Toby is a god send. He made a very hard time a beautiful tribute to my little girl. I didn’t think I could make it through but with the help of Dr. Toby we made it. I can’t thank him enough for his tender demeanor during this very difficult time. Thank you Dr Toby you are a real hero in my eyes.

in loving memory of Leela

Leela was born three days after my husband and I were married. As long as we’ve been a family, Leela was here. She is our first baby…born in raised in Japan, to Hawaii, and laid to peace in Las Vegas. Our girl lived her best life. Leela is gentle and crazy, huge and happy, wonderfully lovey, and just one of the most beautiful beings I’ve ever known.
My family is so grateful to have had Dr. Alyssa support and guide our decision to prevent trauma and discomfort for our girl. The expertise, compassion, and comfort from Dr. Alyssa made a sad situation happily peaceful.
Our hearts are broken because Leela’s not here, but our 4 year old son reminds us that she now “just lives in our hearts forever” and if that ain’t the truth…
Always living your best life, my girl. Still. We love you the most, Leelanaderdarthvaderlabradorretriever.

in loving memory of Macy

Macy was a stray kitten only 5 months old when I found her starving on the streets. She was such a grateful and sweet kitty that was so loving. She was always kind of a loner when it came to being around my other kitties, but she was always so loving with me. She and I had a good 14 year run and I am so happy that we had that time together.

I will miss my Macy so very much and I believe that I will see her again on the next journey. A big thanks to Dr. Toby for making her transition so peaceful….it made my last goodbyes much easier.

Oby came to me over 19 years ago as a feral kitten that had been separated from her siblings. She lived a charmed life with me since that day we first met, but most of all she was my partner through thick and thin. I will miss her immensely! I know that I will see her again in the next journey, but until that day, I will keep her in heart.

Thank you to Dr.Toby for making this very sad day so peaceful for my Oby….. I can’t imagine any other way to say my final goodbyes!

in loving memory of Pepper

Always the sweetest and gentlest baby ever. You did not have a mean bone in your whole little body! I loved the way you would try and hang your whole body out of the car window when we were driving!!! We could hold you only by your tail!!! I always thought “no! He is gonna jump!” But you never did! And I loved how you would bark (the only time you barked) when your water bowl was not completely filled. You did not like bowls, it had to be to the brim. I use to say “Pepper, you have little issues!!!” But we loved you anyway. All your little issues and odd ball traits, is what we loved most about you!
I loved you your entire life! I will miss you the rest of mine!

in loving memory of Chunka (Moo Moo)

The very first day you came home you were a tiny ball of fur, scruffy until I bathed you. You were shaking and I put you on the bed, you laid down and were calm. From that day on you owned my heart. Our journey was long, but not long enough. You were my child before I had children, you saw me through relationships, ups, downs. So many memories but not enough.

I’ll never get used to not having you with me, I may come to accept it, but I won’t get used to it. You knew it was time, I knew it was time, I am so happy to have had that final night of cuddling. Your little black lips and crooked teeth, your happy days, your excitement, your love, support, and how much you are loved will be forever a part of all you have touched. We all love you and hope you are comfortable and together with the family members that were waiting on the other side. Until we meet again my love. Shalom.

Doe’t ik dy seach lang ferlyn
Wat docht it dochs sear as ik d’r wer oan tink

Ik sjoch dy, Ik hear dy, Ik fiel dy, eltse kear opnij
Hjir bin ik, Wêr bisto? It is al lang lyn.
Hjir bin ik, Wêr bisto-It is te lang lyn

Do bist net oars dan leaf
Want do dochst gewoan neat ferkeard
Ik hâld fan dy, sa asto bist
Datst dat dan wol efkes witst…

Ik hou van jouw Mooie Moo Moo.

in loving memory of Abby

We adopted our sweet Abby back in March of 2012, and she soon became the princess of the house. Though she tried our patience for her first two years with us, she finally realized she had found her forever home and settled into a lovely life of tons of TLC, walks, snuggles, lots of toys, and yummy treats. Her favorite pastime was hanging outdoors, especially if her humans were outside too. She was always on the hunt, chasing rabbits and lizards, and was the best gardening companion ever! You left us way too early Abby and we all miss you so much! I know that BlackJack and Harley were there to meet you over the rainbow bridge, which is comforting, and we know that someday too, we will all meet again. Rest in peace our precious Abby.

in loving memory of Wrigley

Wrigley was found alone as a 6 weekish puppy in Arizona. We learned about her a few days after she had been found. After waiting a couple weeks we were able to pick her up. What a little fur ball. She shed an insane amount but every piece of hair was worth it. What an incredible companion. She loved to run and trained me for a half marathon. Wrigley brought her A game when stalking her dad. One of their most favorite games to play. Wrigley was a foodie and enjoyed the finer things of life. She was gentle, patient and protective as each one of her brothers entered our family. Wrigley took care of us. She was our little dog mom and came on all our family trips. She knew our emotions and supported all of them. Her howl was one of a kind as much as she was. Wrigley was a massive presence in our home and was fiercely loyal. The boys loved to be chased which was their ritual after her baths. Open that door and she would be after them. Little feet thumping and little boys screaming and laughing and that howl. Precious noise that I will always remember. Id smile and laugh while cleaning up towels and all the hair. We had a good thing. Wrigley heard everything and knew everything that was going on. She was a part of it all. Some of our greatest joys in her later life were playing in the snow. She was a puppy again and it filled us every time to see her so passionate and playful again. In her final week Wrigley ate like a queen. She was served all her favorites and was never left alone. We did all we could to be as loyal to her through that difficult final week. It all came on so fast but despite the physical limitations her mind and compassion remained. How we all miss you, Wrigley!! Thank you for being such a love, comfort, support and joy in our lives. Roll in the grass, dig in the snow, catch/pop water balloons, open all the presents, get those bunnies, RUN again baby girl. You’re such a good girl Wrigley! Best dog ever… love you, love you.

in loving memory of Dusty

We rescued Dusty in November 2016 and he crossed the Rainbow Bridge on July 3, 2021. There is not enough time or words to describe the joy he brought into our family when we least expected a new rescue. He joined our family and became an amazing companion to our other rescue pitbull girl named Storm. He gave her courage and taught her how to live. Dusty and Storm were ‘one’ and every single moment, every single day, was filled with fun, laughter, happiness, silly behavior, playtime, tug of war, chase, toys, swimming, and unending adoration and love from family and friends. Dusty lived with purpose every day and had routines and ‘business’ to take care of throughout each room in our home to include his yard. He was the biggest presence. In a mere 6 days, we learned our seemingly healthy boy had a rare heart cancer and there was no way of knowing earlier nor was there any treatment. Our entire family gathered around our beloved angel to say goodbye. Tears flow and hearts are heavy. Dusty, you are loved and missed more than words can ever describe. Thank you for finding us my sweet boy.

Max was the most loyal friend ive ever had. I spent 17 years with a very debilitating disease and he was the only one who wouldn’t leave my side. Every surgery, er visit or if i ever left for one day he was at the door waiting for my return. I could write a book about everything he did for me and the love he has shown me. Max showed me a glimpse of the pure love of God through his creation. I will never forget what he means to me.

Layla was rescued on the side of the 17 freeway in Arizona along with her brother who has already crossed over the rainbow bridge in 2014. Layla then became very clingy and much more loving and slept with us from that time on, right next to the side of me always. Recently, before her passing, she slept in the middle of our bed between us. Layla knew how much we loved her and how much she meant to us and that she was a part of our lives and our family. She purred her way into our heart and there will always be fond memories of her every single day. Thank you Dr. Toby! You are just what we needed for our family to give Leila a peaceful passing we are so grateful and thankful for you. You truly are a blessing to people who need Personal attention and comfort in these times. We love you for what you do and just can’t thank you enough for helping us through this difficult time losing our beloved Layla.

🌼Our sweet Daisy will live forever in our hearts. She will always be my miracle girl: surviving and recovering again and again… until it was her time to rejoin Heaven’s angels. I feel that she was an angel sent to me from Heaven, blessing me with the gift of her love, companionship, patience, and playfulness. She is the best Mama Dog in the world, birthing a litter of 10 healthy puppies when she was only a year old. Daisy Mae, your Baby Bear misses you dearly, as we all do. She made me a better person with her unconditional love. I can’t imagine my life without the gift of her love and precious life. Daisy, you are so loved by those who know you best.

in loving memory of Kona

There are no words to express how much Kona has meant to my life. To say that he saved me is an understatement. There were times in my life when I didn’t know if I could take care of him properly…or give him the home he needed. But he ALWAYS gave me the strength to take care of myself so I could take care of him. We lived in a 300 sq foot apartment together. But, the love between us was never lacking and it was the only thing we had. For 13 years he was the best friend and dog that a girl could ever ask for. He protected me, loved me, guided me, gave me hope and a reason to live on… even after he was gone. He came into my life like an angel. I was his dog sitter for 2 years before adopting him at 3. I would dream of the life I would give him and always hoped we would make it to the next great chapter of my life TOGETHER… a yard, a home, and a family. He didn’t suffer long in the end and the greatest gift I gave him was never leaving his side. I had hoped that he would be here with me to start the next chapter of our life together. He died a few days after I moved us into a bigger apartment. There are no words to describe the pain of losing your dearest love one to such a terrible illness as cancer, or why these things happen, but I know we will meet again. Until then, I will continue seeking the dreams that we shared.

in loving memory of Odin Leon Guerrero-Gimena

You’ve always been such a mommy’s boy and you will always be my greatest friend and companion. Spending the last week with you with as much time as we can was so tough because we held on as much as we could to the normalcy of coming home to you and just being together and watching movies but reality constantly hit us from how much your health has declined from all your illnesses. When we looked in your eyes, we still see that goofy and loving boy that captured everyone’s hearts that truly got to know you, but we knew you were just trying to hold on to the strings of your body. The house feels emptier these days and suddenly feels like there’s so much space. It’s bittersweet finding comfort in the hundreds of pictures we have of you and coming to terms that at least you’re no longer struggling. Mommy and daddy miss you so much Odin. We all miss you and love you. Thank you for blessing our family with your love and amazing personality throughout the years. 💕🐾

in loving memory of Stryker

Stryker was the sweetest, most loving dog and I will miss him forever. His happy and goofy smiles, and wagging tail when he saw us. Truly the only one who never judged and loved unconditionally. One of the funniest memories we have of Stryker was when he was around a year old, he loved tearing down my Mom’s garden, and one time he pulled out an entire cactus from the root and he had thorns all over his mouth. We had to pluck each one out between 2 of us and my Mom and brother had to hold him down because it was not easy with a 50 pound pit bull. He never went near the cacti again! I am grateful he will no longer have to hear the noise from the fireworks this 4th of July because he was terrified of them, even though it will be a sad day because we got him on 4th of July, 2009. Rest In Peace bubba, love you furever, Mom.

Moxi came into my life years ago as a rescue dog. He brought so much Love, Joy and Sunshine to me. And he was loved and adored by all his family. He was such a special little guy. Full of life and energy.

He loved our walks around our neighborhood and loved going to his favorite Park. Where he was loved and admired by everyone who passed by him. Especially by all his fur buddies small and large. His special treat after the park was going to Burger King. He loved all our adventures together.

His Celebration of Life was at his favorite park. Where he gained his angel wings. He is our little guardian angel now. And will forever be in our hearts, and memories that we will cherish. We loved our Moxi dearly. Rest in Heavenly Peace our Sweet Moxi.

Buddy was a stray that picked us on May 17, 2020. My boyfriend and I had lost our dog to cancer in December of 2019 and had never owned a cat. We couldn’t turn our back on that innocent, loving face and heart nose. He loved his new home and all the attention he received, and he brought us such joy and happiness in return. He was old and had some medical problems, but we tried our best to make his last year peaceful and full of love. We will miss your cute little personality, but we know that you are now happy and free of all the discomfort.

You were my hiking partner – while Winslow was always trying to keep up you were forging ahead to make sure all was clear – but never getting out of sight. You were a good boy Rivers.

I must say the NPH was excellent way beyond my expectation. Toby was excellent, made us feel comfortable as well as Porsche. I would highly recommend Nevada Pet Hospice to anyone. I cannot say enough good thing

Thank you, our sweet Samantha, for giving us 12 wonderful and joyous years, bringing so much life into our home. You have taught us what unconditional love is. I’m sure you and Juicee are having the best time together in heaven.

Bobby had a great head shot on Nevada SPCA even though trauma left him blind in one eye. He was a 3 year golden lab mix when he came to us. He was able to eventually recover from PTSD. He was a good boy and older brother to Julia who came into his life a year later at 5 months. Julia is an 11 pound Chi-Maltese, so their wrestling matches were way more entertaining than anything WWE could offer. He had some fave toys over the years and liked his treats. He was a champion if messy eater of food. He tried to carry on to the end but his body just could not do it anymore. So he left us with quiet grace.

in loving memory of Emma

We got Emma at the beginning of our relationship when we moved to Missouri. I’ve always wanted a dog since I was a child. One day Nathan texted me a photo of Lab puppies a lady was giving away near his work. He asked if we wanted a boy or a girl, I chose a girl. Naming her was easy. As a FRIENDS fan, I knew if I ever got a child or pet- I’d name them after Ross and Rachel’s daughter EMMA.

When we brought her home, we got prepared. By buying books to gates. We even watched Marley and Me prepare us for a life with a Labrador.

Emma was a very mischievous puppy. She ate everything of mine. Shoes, couch, and Sonicare toothbrush. Nathan was spared.

She enjoyed her Missouri life. We lived on 13 acres where she would run and chase rabbits, play in the winter snow, and lay under us while on the hammock in the summers. She enjoyed the water and would jump up and down near the front door to let us know she wanted to go outside. Our Aunt Tootie would come to say hello every day when we were at work to make sure she was okay. Her favorite toy was Fred, a small red dog toy from PetSmart. She never tore him up. She loved bones, belly rubs, and getting to see why was in her stocking Christmas morning.

Over the year’s she had numerous nicknames, from Em to M&Ms. Her Aunt Suzi gave her a country middle name of Jean, and her Aunt Ashley would call her “Sweet girl”, Grandma just spoiled her.

Emma was raised with a stray cat named Harvey and was her baby brother she protected. Later came Agnes, another car she protected.

We moved back home with our furry tribe in 2016. Where Emma was sad not to have her 13 acres anymore. But still loved us the same.

After we adopted Oliver in 2016, Emma had her hand full protecting her furry siblings. We called her the “Sheriff” as she would walk in to see what was going on when any of them would act up.

Like, at the end of Marley and Me we had to say goodbye to our baby girl. It was just as heartbreaking as we expected. But, blessed to have her home while we said goodbye and got to rub her soft Labrador ears. She had Fred with her too.

Emma leaves behind her furry brothers; Harvey; Oliver and Max. Her two dads, her Grandma, and her many Aunts and Uncles who loved her dearly.

Emma will be missed.

in loving memory of Max

Max came into my life when I was 26 years old. I had just turned 26 on March 20th 2006. He was born February 10th, 2006. I walked into a Pet Store (stopped doing that; didn’t know at the time about puppy mills) in May of 2006. And there he was. All the other Shih Tzu siblings were full of spunk and crazy puppy energy. Not Max. Max’s face basically said, “PLEASE… GET ME OUT OF HERE. I HATE DOGS. LOOK AT THE SHINANIGANS GOING ON IN HERE!!!! Look how well behaved and calm I am… Doesn’t that sound MUCH better than all of this nonsensical puppy drama!!??” I said, “I want him please.” The rest, was 15.5 years of history. He was a pure bred Shih Tzu, papers and all. Frankie I had adopted from an animal shelter previously, so he was about 2.5 years old when I adopted him. It had been a LONG time since I’d had a puppy; to train, puppy pads, crying nights.

Max has seen me through most of my coming into my adult life time period. A lot happened in those 15 years. I went to college, moved with me NINE times in 15 years. He’s been there with human losses and pain, and celebrations and good times. He was my quiet alpha; didn’t know he was one, but he certainly was for me. He was my good boy.

Max was in the back yard, with the other 3 and Daddy. Long story short, Max fell in the pool. More like walked in as apparently Max thought he was Jesus. My husband was trying to use the pool cleaning scooper to scoop him to the side of the pool as Max would just keep swimming to the middle, terrified when he saw Jesse. I ran out there after hearing Jesse yell Noooo, oh NOOO… Needless to say he had been in there probably 45 seconds at that point. It was 8pm. 40 degrees out and the pool was 32 degrees. I jumped in into the deep end and grabbed him and got him out. Into a warm sink of water as he is ROOSTER CROWING the loudest I’ve ever heard.

I know this was meant for just a memory. But Max is bigger than just one memory to me. He’s 15.5 years of life. Moments become hard to remember especially every single one. But I have tons, and so many photos and videos… Today is hard. The absence is LARGE. It’s painfully obvious, he’s at the bridge.

Thank you so much, Dr. Toby. Your kindness, gentleness and even my other 3 in the back room who typically hear stranger voices and bark the whole time, stopped 30 seconds after your arriving; you’re something special.

Max was so blessed to have you, Dr. Toby. We all were. Thank you for making his last earthly memory, not so terrible for me to look back on. It was painful, of course, but it was so beautiful and calming too.

RIP my Maximus Pantistrapimus. Aka, Poochino, Chino, Tiny Chino, BooBoo, Telescope Neck, The Rooster and SO many more.

I love you, Max. My Baby Bean.

in loving memory of Cosmo

My best buddy in the world Cosmo could snore. He could peel the paint off of walls with his snoring. When Dr. Watson gave him the first drug, Cosmo went to sleep and he started snoring. That was the final joy he gave us in his 12 years of joy giving. He was free of pain and confusion. He was again Cosmo. My wife and I laughed and than cried a moment or two later when he stopped snoring. He had passed. I meet and knew Dr. Watson maybe a total of 90 minutes. What she did for my wife, Cosmo and me will never be forgotten. She took a absolutely horrid time in our lives and made it bearable. I will never forget the kindness and care she gave me, my wife and most of all, my best buddy in the world, Cosmo.

in loving memory of Alice

I adopted Alice in 2005 when she was about 2 years old. She was everything…she was so loving, silly, social, loyal, friendly to anyone and everyone. She was absolutely beautiful with her bright blue eyes, dainty long arms and lynx point Siamese features. When my husband came into our lives, he fell for her instantly. She loved to lay on us and get as close to our faces as she could. She helped us so much when we lost our little Bella in 2015, and we could tell she grieved as well. Alice was our rock and our constant companion, especially throughout the entire shutdown when neither of us had work and we felt stressed about our future. Dr. Toby could not have been kinder and more comforting to us all, and while she made her peaceful transition, all my husband could do was keep thanking her while we cried. He had the right idea~ Instead of only grieving the loss of her in body, I will forever be so grateful for her enormous presence in our lives! We still feel her spirit so strongly in our house, and thanks to Dr. Toby. and the caring, compassionate staff at Nevada Pet Hospice, we can take comfort in knowing she passed peacefully and free of stress in the place she loved to be. We are so grateful. Alice, we will love and miss you with all our hearts, always and forever!

You’re the one who rescued me! You will forever be a part of me. You are my baby, my big boy, my best friend, my protector. You were so sweet and strong and goofy. You wanted to be wherever I was and on my lap – (all 75lbs of you). You gave me unconditional love and got me through some painful times. I don’t know what I’m going to do when I come home from work and you’re not there to greet me like you haven’t seen me in months. I will miss you all my life 😢 and when God calls me home to heaven, I pray you’re right there – Running to me! 🙏🏼

in loving memory of Penny Pudgins

Our sweet little girl had the most gentlest soul… She was loving beyond compare and enjoyed being around everyone she met. Penny loved her belly rubs as she would stretch her paws out to grab our fingers. Her name was elaborate, because her spirit was. Penny Nona Winchester Pudgins. This calico had so much to offer, from her cute meows, playful rolls on the carpet and doing yoga with her mommy. Penny was a rescue cat, and like so many senior cats it’s sometimes harder to get them homes, but once we saw Penny we just new she was the one. She came right over and started showering us with lovers right away.
She was both mommy & daddy’s little angel and now she is our little angle from above.
“Penny, you taught us what love is all about…Daddy will miss you putting your arms around him. Mommy will miss your sweet kisses. Will miss you wanting to eat all of our leftovers and the times you’d wait for mommy by the shower. It won’t be the same not seeing you lounge in the sun watching the hummingbirds and will miss our adventures to the Ocean and Sedona…but we know your at rest without pain, and that was our gift to you, even though it broke our hearts… May you rest peacefully sweet girl” Will love you forever!!!!
*Thank you Dr. Watson for your incredible empathy, compassion and gentleness during Penny’s transition to her new home in heaven. We couldn’t have done it without you. Your a true earth angel…

in loving memory of Babies

Babies, aka: Her Royal Highness, came into my life as a foster dog. I failed miserably as a foster mom and adopted her 3 years ago. She was the Queen of her house and loved only me. I was totally ok with that because I loved her too and will miss her terribly. She’s joined Scrumptious the rat across the Rainbow Bridge now, and I’ll see them again one day.

in loving memory of Gingie

Gingie is a shy but very vocal one. He always let you know if you did something to displease him (like sneezing). Always such a sweetheart. Natural born hunter/ exterminator extraordinaire. Loves bird watching. Foot fetish. A big fluffy baby. Daily conversations in the kitchen of you scolding us to feed you faster, or when we return home past the curfew you placed on us (sunset). A guardian to our home & our hearts.

Although distance kept us apart, he always had my heart till the very end. There are many loveable cats in this world, but there will always only be one Gingie to me.

I am blessed to have had gingie be part of my life. He was the sweetest cat and craved attention all the time. He was very vocal from the moment he was adopted.

His mother saw something very special gingie the day she she first laid eyes on him. He captured her heart and soon after captured mine. He is loved by everyone who got to know him. He will be deeply missed.

in loving memory of Oscar

Oscar was our best friend and companion, the smiles, the joy, and talks he shared with us will always remain in our broken hearts, from his passing.
He came to us 10 yrs. ago about the same time we lost our 1st schnauzer (Rilla) at 13 yrs.. Oscar helped us through that tough time which left a crater hole in our hearts.
He was a wonderful travel companion as we traveled working out of a RV most of his life..
When we got to Las Vegas 3 yrs ago we promised him a doggy door and a patch of green grass. Which he was always checking to make sure his door was open. There were times he would stick his nose out just to check the temperature. If it was too hot he would turn around and go back to his bean bag and wait until it cooled off..
He liked going to the boat on the weekends. He liked walking the boat dock meeting new people and yelling at kids for running on the dock….
He had a full life and we had fun.. San Diego we got bicycles and hooked him up with a chariot ( bike trailer) to take him to the dog beach. He just loved running with the other dogs and probably the only time he didn’t mind getting wet..
This last health episode he had we knew that he would not recover from it at almost 17 yrs old. That’s when we called Dr. Toby to help us through this one. What a kind gentle person. We have utmost respect for him and the service he offers. For this was the best gift we could have given Oscar at this time. Oscar shook like a vibrator every time we took him to a vet clinic or groomer and Dr. Toby came right to Oscar’s bedside. He went peacefully and we could not have asked for more.
Until we meet again, our little friend Oscar,

Thank you

Agatha loved the Nevada sun. She would perch on the stone waterfall and survey her domain. At night she would scale the bunk bed and cuddle with our boy. She was the sweetest cat with the most sinister glare. She will live forever in our hearts and our minds.

in loving memory of Birdy

I rescued my little senior fur baby 5/20/2017 when she was 14 years old, it was love at first sight❤️ She was a sweet old little girl, always let me know when she had to go potty, always wanted to sit on my lap and was very protective of her mama! She was a big comfort to me when I was dealing with a loss. She wouldn’t let me watch certain TV shows that had dogs in them like “Top Dog” or K-9 cop shows as she would constantly bark at the TV😊. It was just me and her at home, I feel lost without her😪. Dr Todd with Nevada pet hospice was very informative, soft spoken, reassuring, compassionate and never made me feel rushed. I am so glad I opted for in-house euthanasia and was able to love on my little fur baby until she got her angel wings💕

in loving memory of Juicy

Juicy loved to snuggle on anyone’s lap! If you sat down for a few minutes she was sure to help herself up on to your lap or chest for a nap. She liked to play and talk with her mouse. She rolled around on her back in the sun to give herself a good back scratch. She loved her morning meals. She let you know if your petting bothered her with a little love bite but then followed it up with several love licks. She was truly a blessing to have in our lives for so many years. She will be dearly missed.😿😽

We paid extra for pet friendly hotel rooms so we could come with us on trips to Texas, Utah, and California. Thank you to the staff at NV Pet Hospice & Dr. Toby from the first shaky phone call we made we felt like part of the family. We will miss you forever sweet girl, run free in doggie heaven.

in loving memory of Duke

Duke was my big, beautiful boy. He came to be mine because his first family foolishly abandoned him. Their loss!! He was a Lab/Great Dane mix with long legs, a big smile, and a gait like a stallion. His disposition was that of a kind heart, volunteering slobbery kisses at a moment’s notice. He was the picture of patience and tolerance when his sidekick, Melody, got too rambunctious. His departure leaves our household with a big void. But if anyone could soothe the painful process of letting go, it would be Dr. Toby and his compassionate team of counselors. These people are the kindest, most caring and sincere people anywhere!! What a blessing it was to find them through a friend’s recommendation. Thank you, Dr. Toby, for all you and your team do. May God bless you ALWAYS.

Tula was adopted by our son in a Las Vegas shelter when she was 2 years old. When he moved into an apartment that was not suited for a dog very well, we took Tula. It was the best decision we ever made. She fit right in with our other pup and soon would be in a household with two other dogs and a cat. Tula loved them all and they loved her. She was the best and sweetest dog that anyone could hope for. She brought us so much joy that will last us our lifetime. We all miss her, including her best friend Lily our Maine Coon cat.

Nutmeg was a sweet gentle loving best friend.
During her 22 years she never put a paw wrong and made an impact on everyone she met.
She loved her tummy rubs and had the best purr ever. She loved the sunshine. One of her favorite things was “helping” me plant flowers in the garden. I miss my little helper so much.
Dr. Toby showed so much love, compassion and understanding. With his generous help we were able to give Nutmeg a beautiful gentle passing, in our sunshine filled garden. Thank you Nutmeg for giving us so much love. We will miss you always and forever. 🐈💕

Duffy aka ” Duffernutter”
Duffy was a rescue off the streets of Southern Nevada. She endured many hot desert days and traffic laden streets before we took her in. A very skittish kitty at first, she quickly gained a special place in our hearts. Always playful, making us laugh, with her quirky ways of batting and pouncing on her favorite fish toy with those big beautiful paws of hers. She was a joy to have as a part of our family. As sad as we are to have lost her we are thankful for the time that we had. We gave her a good life filled with love. That’s all she really wanted after all. Big hugs and thank yous to Dr.Toby and staff. We love and appreciate all that you do! You make end of life decisions peaceful and dignified for all involved.

Charlie was always ready to give his stinky little kisses on the nose of anyone who would let him. He had a tail that moved like a pompom when he was excited. His best friend his entire life was Pug the pug. They were inseparable up until the last couple months when Charlie didn’t want much to do with anyone as his liver cancer progressed. He was the most cuddly loving dog you ever could’ve wished for. I am so so sad to lose him, but comforted knowing he’s no longer in pain. Dr. Toby was extremely compassionate and helped me be strong and calls for Charlie during the process. As hard as it was to finally commit to do, there is no more peaceful way I would want him to make his transition. Heartbroken, but extremely grateful for our 14 years of memories together. Thank you for all your support and compassion.

Ace “Poopie” was my first baby. He came to us at 9 weeks old and instantly stole our hearts and food. He was a home-doggy but loved the occasional walk. I’m sure he’s stealing someone’s sandwiches, humping all the stuffed beavers, swimming in a bathtub, and cuddled up next to anyone that would love him. He was a loving wiener dog and will be forever missed. We love you Poopie Doopie! 🐾💙

Our baby girl came to us at the age of two and half as our first dog. She was a rescue from American Cocker Spaniel Rescue in Spanaway, WA. She was so beautiful, loving and active. Soon enough, we started taking her to performance dog shows. Heidi won three High in Trials at AKC obedience trials during her prime, including a surprise win from Open A class as the total underdog. She was also the naughtiest dog in America (Fido Magazine) for her counter surfing antics. Above all, our baby girl loved to model and pose for cameras. She recognized all forms of camera and would offer to pose even till her very end. Thank you Heidi for the unconditional love and patience. We will love you till the end of time.

Our baby stayed with us 9 years. The last 8 months were a fight against cancer. Dr Toby gave us peace for the last moment we spent with her. But Peggy is not about this last moment. She is about being my shadow. She was my best girl, my bathroom supervisor, my swimming pool life guard, my kitchen right hand, my hot water bottle, my yoga partner, my alarm clock, my guard dog, my clown, my companion. We are grateful she left peacefully, on her favorite couch, with my body against hers. Our last cuddle. Thank you for that.

in loving memory of Shelby

Shelby came into our life as a senior dog. Through the first 7 1/2 years of her life, she endured a lot of hardship and neglect with vast majority of her existence being spent alone in a backyard.
Our family (my husband David, our Labrador Arthur and myself) welcomed Shelby into our home with open arms.
Shelby repaid our love and compassion tenfold with her joyous demeanor, unquestioned loyalty and unconditional love.
Shelby never complained or whined, even in her last days when she was in pain and discomfort.
She was so thankful to be in a home that showered her with love and affection, and all she wanted to do is to reciprocate and make us happy. Which she did immensely.
The incredible pain of her loss is tempered by the knowledge that for 2 1/2 short years, she filled our home with joy, happiness and love.
We all miss you Shelby. I, especially miss……extremely miss my Guardian Angel and Body Guard. Most of all, we will miss her sweet loving face holding her toy in her mouth….and when she runs, she gallops like a horse…such beautiful creature from our Almighty Lord.
We all love and miss you, Shelby-doo.
Rest in peace my dear angel, my dear old-girl-Shelby-doo!
Thank you Dr. Toby and your entire staff for your compassion and kind hearts.

Jack was my best buddy and there is a hole in my physical world now, but he will always be with me, along with Lola. Thank you Jack. I love you.

in loving memory of Duchess

Duchess was exceptional. She was *the dog* of a lifetime for both my husband and I. She did everything with such exuberance even in her final days when her body was failing her. Her warrior spirit was something we as humans can only aspire to. Her love was the purest kind, and I am forever grateful to have known it. I only pray to be a fraction of the human she believed me to be.

Duchess came to me during one of the most difficult periods of my life; she quite literally saved me because she needed me and I, her. She taught me so many life lessons along the way. I will forever be thankful to her, and she will be my furrever angel.

Words are not even enough to encapsulate what a gorgeous soul she was; to know her was to love her. She brought comic relief to the mundane, turning treats into throw toys with a wiggle-butt that just never quit wiggling, making sure you knew every single morning that *TODAY was going to be THE GrEaTesT DaY EVER* and her snuggles were top of the line, always finding a way to be your glue-baby and squeeze in, her emotional intelligence was uncanny. Fiercely protective of her people and the home, yet all gooey and sensitive as soon as you gave someone the stamp of approval.

She lived her life with the sole purpose to please and left it all out on the field every day, without fail. My heart feels utterly shattered in losing her for she was so many things; my baby, my friend, my protector, my constant…it’s devastating, but in her honor and spirit I know it would make her sad if I stayed sad, so I shall summon all my strength to live how Duchess would; with bravery, tenacity, eagerness, and always seeking to find humor in the world even when it is difficult at times because that is what she would do. She was truly one of a kind and will be forever missed. Rest in peace now, my sweet girl, my sweet angel…

Buddy! Buddy was our only family pet for our three kids, who are now grown. He was a beautiful and sweet red-tri Australian Shepherd, who had really soft hair. He loved us so much and was very devoted to us. He was very friendly and loved people and other dogs. He would follow us around the house (I called him my shadow) and liked to sleep where he could keep an eye on us. When he wagged his short tail, his whole behind wiggled back and forth, and it was so cute. He loved playing ball, especially with my son, who could rip the ball out of his mouth (Buddy was bad about dropping it). He was a very picky eater and a loud barker too.

When he was 14, we found out he had Cushing’s Disease, and he started having problems with his liver, and he also suffered with arthritis. Eventually he had so much pain going up and down the stairs, he would stay downstairs or sometimes we would have to carry him. I moved to a one story house, and we helped him as much as we could for a couple of years, but he was in so much pain and was taking several pain meds a day. He had trouble getting up and walking, and usually took two walks a day his whole life, and now he couldn’t even go for a walk. Finally we decided he was suffering too much and it was time to let him go.

Dr. Toby was so understanding and compassionate during such a painful time. He was so kind to us and Buddy when it was time to say goodbye. I am grateful for all our wonderful years with Buddy and grateful to Dr. Toby for helping us with our difficult transition.

We miss you and love you so much, Buddy, and will keep you in our hearts forever… xoxoxo

Harley was my “Hachi”, an amazing beautiful Saint Bernard. He touched and capture my heart beyond. His perfect coloring and built always brought him attention. Children often called him Beethoven. His heart was beautiful he loved his family and always welcomed strangers. Thank you Dr. Toby for your compassion and friendship…..Harley went peaceful and quiet and you made us feel better about this journey that ended.

in loving memory of Scrumptious

Dr Toby is an amazing human being. Yesterday, we had to say goodbye to our little rat Scrumptious. We loved her just as anyone loves a dog or a cat. She was sweet and gentle and wanted nothing more than to be with her humans. She would follow me around like a dog, come running when I called her and would give kisses and accept them back happily. That little rat even house-broke herself! We got Scrummy when my daughter’s co-worker’s snake wouldn’t eat her. Thank God my daughter saved her and brought her to me. She was a $1.50 rat who ended up living like a queen, and for 2+ years she knew nothing but love. I pray Scrummy’s legacy is that people will look at rats as the loving little creatures they CAN be, if they’re just shown kindness.

in loving memory of Gibbs

This photo shows Gibbs on January 1, 2021, on his first adventure of the year. Gibbs, aka Mr. Gibbs, was greatly loved and is terribly missed. He came to us over 7 years ago, when he was reported as six years old. He always seemed younger, being a bright and curious soul his entire life. He never revealed anything about his life before coming to us, but we surmised that he used to be in the circus due to his love of costumes and ability to dance. With us, Gibbs became a hiking dog and has summited many great peaks around Las Vegas (including Mt. Charleston), and hiked in far and remote reaches of Nevada, Arizona, and Utah. His coat matched the color of Spring Mountain limestone so perfectly that he often sported a bandana so he could be seen. Around the house, he loved barking at people for long periods of time, and was always ready for a walk. Gibbs often generated great excitement from neighborhood dogs when he strolled by. Gibbs was always eager to jump up into a lap, and he probably loved sitting in laps more than anything.

Gibb’s housemate, Abby, misses him very much, and she and his friend Gunner spent many hours with Gibbs on the trail and around the house and neighborhood parks. His friends Chinle, and Wolfie were also hiking pals. People always loved meeting Gibbs and commented on his grand beard, but his most special people include Austin, Barry, Jane, and Justin. For myself, Gibbs was my shadow on the trail and often so close on my heels that I could not see him when I turned around. His intelligent expressions were so clear you could hear the words he was thinking. There are now no words big enough to capture my grief.

Gibbs was well cared for by kind people that are also excellent veterinarians. First by Dr. Paetz, then Dr. Ina who gifted us a little more time with Gibbs, and finally Dr. Toby who gently guided Gibb’s passing. We are grateful to them, and to friend Dr. Crissy. And we will be forever grateful to Gibbs for the love he gave us every single day.

in loving memory of Sebastian

Sebastian loved grass. He accepted all forms of it but his absolute favorite was freshly cut grass or newly seeded sod. He would run as fast as he could across it, wriggle on his back in it and just turn in circles of happiness.
What did he see in those green blades? What did he smell in its freshly watered squares? Just purest joy.
When I close my eyes, I see him in the meadow running across an emerald, slightly dewy field of grass. Running without abandon and flopping down at will. You are dearly loved and we will see you again, my baby.

in loving memory of Copper

Not all beagle, not all pointer, Copper was the quintessential hound dog, charming with intermittent manners .He was a smart, devilish rescue who was able to scale and land on 4 foot counters, eat your entire sandwich and disappear before you ever noticed. He was partially fearless, perform daring acts of 180 degree walking while tethered to his harness, but letting you check oiut the scary noise from downstairs

And before his end, he was there at the critical time for others. He comforted Grandma Elaine in the nursing home and in the hospital. He gave love and provided incredible solace to Grandma Penny, easing her anxiety near her end.

Copper was one of a kind like Frank or Dean. He was a “chick” magnet. And if he had thumbs, he would have stolen the car, with the top down, flirting with the ladies.

I brought Cooper home when he was only about 4 weeks old, too soon but his mama had left the litter on their own. He was the best from day 1, I think he potty trained himself and always just seemed to understand everything I said to him. He was definitely an old soul. He was a comfort through some rough days and shared in so many happy days as well. He will be greatly missed but went in the best way possible thanks to Dr Toby. Thank you for helping my boy move on with no stress or fear, just surrounded by love ❤️

My Lover was the most amazing companion I could ever have. He was always there for me in the most challenging times during his lifetime. I will always miss his headbutting and sneezes on my face for my morning wakeup calls. It was so hard to say goodbye, but I know he’s in a better place. I will always be grateful to Dr. Toby for making the process as gentle, loving and caring for Lover and for us.

in loving memory of Rotti

I first saw Rotti online. He was found living on the street in Southern California. Once we saw his face we just had to make him part of our family. My daughter and I drove the four hours to meet him and after an hour together we knew he was our dog. As soon as Rotti walked into our front door he knew he was in his forever home. After some amazing years together he will be forever missed. However, while drinking my morning coffee looking out of the back window I swear I can still see him outside playing with his furry sister.

in loving memory of Mellie

Over the course of my 55+ years, I have experienced every level of pain conceivable.
At least I believed that to be true until yesterday. As I held her paw, petted her head, looked into the sweetest eyes imaginable and told her that I would love her forever, Mellie the Mu Dog and I said goodbye and she slipped quietly away from this life.
Ash was amazing and took care of setting up home euthanasia with a very spiritual Doctor. Mellie had been slowly losing her vision and the use of her hind quarters. Ash and I had been staying close to home to help her however we could. Mellie Mu had an incredible will to stay with us and continued on even though she would struggle, fall and get stuck. Helping her up and to get around was not an issue for me, yet it would have been selfish to think it was how she wanted to go on.
I had all night and yesterday to spend time with her. After all these years I was certain that my love for her was an absolute and there was no way I could ever love her more and yet I did with every passing minute. On here last day, Ash got her that slice of Birthday cake she always wanted to eat. I let her “steal” a paper towel loosely tucked in my pocket so she could meticulously shred it into the tiniest of pieces which was one of her favorite “up to no good pass times”, aside from stealing ribeyes from the counter in her younger days. We ate little bits of all the things she was never supposed to have, but nothing that would make her sick.
Mellie and I religiously spent time by the spa – her on a beach towel or hammock and I in the water. For our last time together, we spent a quiet half hour just being together in our happy place. Scrapper our little rescue and Ash met Dr. Toby at the side gate to allow him in and we all sat as a family for the last time. Mellie who’s M.O. was typically a wild act of bounding to her feet to say to happily greet any visitors. Over the past few weeks, I could see the change in her spirit. The will was there, but she was too tired to go on. She managed to give Doc a proper Hello from her hammock and rested her face back in my hand. It was beautiful yet so incredibly sad, serene and full of love in equal measures. It was time, and try as I might, I simply was not ready for this. It took everything I had to hold it together so I could smile and love on her while the sedative took her into twilight and then last dose took her to peace one of the last intact pieces of my heart broke and my soul cried. Throughout my life I have lost family, friends and pets to disease, suicide, murder and natural causes yet this feeling was so different, and I don’t think my soul will ever feel the same until the Mellie Mu and I meet again. We had a bond that transcended things I probable will never understand but I am so grateful for it.
I’ve never utilized a Veterinary Hospice before. In my opinion, with the right Doctor, it is the most comforting and compassionate service to say goodbye to a suffering loved one (pet). So – I want to take a moment to thank Dr. Toby Goldman at Nevada Pet Hospice who felt like a family member and conducted the process with heartfelt sensitivity, like an actual service. Historically, I am not a man who easily expresses many emotions so for Toby to console a 250 pound Polish man, crying like a child, and making him feel OK about it was a feat unto itself.

Crash or Crashie Poo as we preferred to call her was the kindest and sweetest Rottweiler you would ever meet. She loved giving kisses especially to kittens and babies. She always put a smile on your face and crashed right into your heart. So many people miss you Crash, we’ll meet again and play catch and eat spaghetti together. We love you and miss you so much, you’ll forever sit pretty in our thoughts and hearts.

Aimee aka Pudgie, you will be missed! You were the sweetest cat ever, a loyal companion and compassionate to your family. Aimee was always there for her girls when they needed a friend. Her presence in the room would bring a smile to anyone’s face. She had the softest fur and an easy going disposition. We also referred to her as the proverbial fraidy-cat. She enjoyed the backyard and we never had to worry about her going elsewhere. Aimee loved eating ham so much, we would have to spell out the word when mentioning it, or she would come running waiting for her favorite treat.
Aimee will be forever in our hearts. Rest in peace.

Our Bodie was the epitome of a Golden Retriever. He was calm, and helped others be calm. He easily accepted all people, which helped all people accept him. He was always ready to go for a ride in the car, or go for a hike, yet he was equally happy to snooze at home with his family. He passed on as gently as he lived, and has left in hole in our hearts that time will only partially fill.

From a clumsy puppy, tripping over your big feet to a gentle giant everyone adored, you made our life complete. Oh how we’re gonna miss your big goofy smile, your “side eye”, your snoring, your drool, even your flying slobber lobbers… Your sweet, sensitive, yet protective personality and your resilient sometimes stubborn attitude filled our hearts with gratitude daily. How very grateful we are to have experienced life with you. You will be missed beyond words but will be forever in our hearts.

Until we meet again Shorty Dude, we love you.

Run free sweet girl…run free…you are no longer bound by anything, stretch those once aching limbs, stiff joints, breathe deep now, and when you look around and wonder where we are, it will be but just a moment ago we were together. We will again explore those distant misty fields, meadows, marshes, and mountains like we did before.

Rest easy now. Wait for us. We will be there.

You were Karen’s girl and were everything we thought you would be and more. Know you are loved and terribly missed.

God’s speed sweet Tess. You brought joy to everyone you met.

Her spirit is fierce but her body was always kind of fragile. RIP sweet girl…we will always miss you…until we meet again on that rainbow bridge.

in loving memory of Yeti

Yeti was found one morning tied to a door at The Animal Foundation and he ticked all of the “hard to adopt” boxes—big, senior, and in need of vet care. His mouth was in such bad shape he could barely eat. We wanted to give a good dog in a bad situation a great home. It was love at first sight and on March 29, 2018 all of our lives changed for the better.

It was often said that we all won the “Shelter Lottery.” Our starter Shepherd was a handsome, calm, affectionate, and sweet-natured boy. To make it up to him for losing his manhood, three rotten teeth, and half of his tail, we showered him with Gucci refrigerated dog food, multiple walks per day, soft beds and pillows, and lots of fun squeaky toys. He gave us the perfect daily excuse for exercise and fresh air, kept the backyard “aerated” with his digging/excavation projects, sprinkled the house liberally with Shepherd glitter, and provided nightly pre-dinner entertainment. His final gift to us was a wonderful Christmas week that started with him opening his present to me in the most spectacularly hilarious way imaginable, using the Christmas tree as a back scratcher, opening (i.e., shredding the wrapping) his presents, and presiding over his loot.

The day after Christmas, unfortunately, was the beginning of the end. We are extremely grateful to Dr. Toby for helping us give Yeti a peaceful ending at home with the people he loved and that loved him. We miss the Big Lug terribly, but count ourselves incredibly lucky to have had him in our lives.

Wether it be errands, outings or vacations Missy went everywhere with us. Her personality and the sparkle in her eyes lit up everyplace we went. Many times groups of people would gather to take a turn at petting her fluffy coat and to take a close up look at that inquisitive look on her face.
Missy, words can’t describe how much we miss you. Heaven for me is you playing in the grass waiting patiently for us to be together again.

We will love you always,

in loving memory of Bruno

Bruno came into our lives at less than a year old in 2009 and throughout time endured with our family hardships and growth. When we were given the diagnosis that he had cancer, our hearts broke. Through his strength, he fought through it more and gave us three more weeks before crossing the rainbow bridge.

He was loved and pampered his last weeks with company always around him and passed at home with the help of a local vet surrounded by his loving family.

Bruno was a huge, strong, handsome, and kind hearted 130 pound protector for his family but had a soft playful heart. Kind and forgiving to his “makulit” sister Mandi and wise and unselfishly loving to his entire family for all his 11 years. He loved to eat anything and played whenever chance he got. We all felt safe at home and would always protect us at night with his keen ears and eyes always active around the house. Our big boy always wanted to be with company no matter what. His playful howls, handsome face, curiosity, helpfulness, and noble and wise attitude will be missed.

No matter where you are Bruno, we will miss you always. We love you Bruno. You’ve left an impression in all our hearts and made us better. Thank you Bruno for your love.

in loving memory of FiFi

Fifi was such a loving dog. She filled our home with love and happiness. She had a way to light up your face. Whenever you hand her a treat, she was ready to do five tricks in a row to hurry you so you can just give her treat. She loved people and always tried to get their attention. If you were not paying enough attention to her, she would crawl under your arm and make sure you notice her. When it would get dark and close to the time I get off work, she would wait for me near the garage door. If I was sad or feeling sick, Fifi would cuddle right next to you. Last December, Fifi got really sick. She had an enlarged heart and required oxygen. She was able to give me 11 more months to enjoy her presence. She was physically getting weaker towards the end of her life but she never gave up on giving me her love. She hung on as long as her body would let her. In the end she was able to say goodbye to everyone she loved and she passed away sleeping so comfortable, something she hadn’t felt in a long time.

in loving memory of Bam

Bam was about a year old and the neighborhood cat when we moved into our home 15 years ago. As soon as I became aware of him, I fed him and gave him attention whenever I saw him. This went on for a couple of months, and then one day Bam showed up on our doorstep with an injured leg. I think he knew I would take care of him. Our next-door neighbors, who were Bam’s primary caretakers before we moved in, gave me their blessing to take him to the vet and to ultimately adopt him. That was the day he officially became our baby boy.

For the next 15 years, we loved our sweet and gentle boy with all our hearts. He adored being brushed with his Kong cat brush, and he gave the best cuddles, nuzzling his head against my neck and purring while I gave him scritches. But the independent spirit he acquired from being on his own for the first year of his life never left him. Despite my best efforts, he never adjusted to being an indoor-only cat, although he did become very fond of being with us inside as long as he could get out whenever he wanted. He was always adventuresome and seemed to feel a responsibility to keep an eye on his neighborhood. I once told the little boy next door that I tried to make Bam stay inside for his own safety, but that Bam protested so much that I gave up the idea. The young child said wisely, “You have to let him live his life.” And live his life he did! I eventually affixed a GPS device to his collar so I would always know where he was and could also see where he’d been. I saw that he went all over the neighborhood, having adventures to which I wasn’t privy, but that obviously delighted him. And he always came home to our loving arms.

Bam was recently diagnosed with chronic kidney disease. He held his own for a while, but then started to go downhill quickly. We knew that Bam didn’t want to live a life of debility, so rather than subject him to heroic treatments, we decided to let him go. As I held Bam in my arms, Dr. Toby lovingly took him on his final journey. Rest in peace, Bam. We will always love you.

in loving memory of Bailee

Bailee was only eight weeks old when we adopted her. She was smaller at that age than our two Maltese so for a long time she thought of herself as small and never attempted to jump a low fence we had to keep the others off a certain area of grass. When we took care of a friend’s Jack Russell, Bailee quickly learned how to follow his lead, jumping onto our covered sunken spa and over the low fence. Her favorite place to lay outside was on top of the spa after that.
Bailee had some fun traits we miss. Her “dad, you’re home!” dance at the door every night, or her “time to eat” bark after planting herself in the middle of the kitchen so she wouldn’t be forgotten. She loved her food and treats. In the morning, if mom slept too late, she was there to make herself known. She would put both front paws on the edge of the mattress and push it until mom got up! If she wanted anyone’s attention, she would put her paw on their leg until she got what she wanted. She didn’t mind being vacuumed after a brushing.
Bailee loved to go on walks but her knees would bother her because she was bow-legged so she was content laying by the pool, soaking up the sun. At our other home in NW MT, which is in the mountains, she liked exploring the property or laying outside, even in the snow.
Bailee was our sweet “baby girl”. We didn’t know how sick she was until she didn’t want to eat. We discovered she had cancerous tumors on two organs which caught us off guard. She never acted like she was in pain but two weeks after diagnosis we could tell she was miserable so we knew the cancer was winning.
We will forever be grateful for Dr. Toby coming to our home so she could be outside, surrounded by those she loved and who loved her. We miss her very much!

in loving memory of Yoda

Friday, we said, “Goodbye” to my special friend. I’ve had Yoda for 16 years. Yoda was diagnosed with lymphoma 3 years ago and was given 2-6 weeks to live. We decided to not do chemotherapy and despite the odds, he lived a quality life. With each veterinarian visit, the doctors were amazed he was still with us. Although his departure is sad, he gave us 3 years we never anticipated.

My life has changed so much in the time that Yoda and I spent together. Never could I have imagined how special he would be to me on the day I brought him home. I’ll miss him for the rest of my life and I feel so grateful to have been loved by him.

Yoda taught me that a diagnosis and a prognosis are just best guesses. He also showed that spirit, heart, loyalty, connection, and love matter more in the end than anything else.

Thank you for 16 years Yoda Bear ❤

Diesel dog lived a life full of adventures! His favorite pass time was being the lifeguard on his boat on Lake Mead. He loved camping and hiking. He also loved a good happy hour on a patio! But even more importantly Diesel was his mother’s boy. He sensed her sadness or fear before she did. He would sit on her to cheer her up and even lick her tears. He loved being on of the boys with dad and running, playing, and protecting his little sister pup, Tula. Diesel got a new role as protector when his baby sister was born 8 months ago. Diesel cheered up everyone who walked through the door of the Pagon house. He will be immensely missed and forever remembered.

in loving memory of Bayou

We adopted Bayou in 2003 as a 6 week old puppy in Mississippi where we moved to for work after living in the Middle East.
She received her name “Bayou” for the swamps that were close to where we lived. From Mississippi we moved to Louisiana for 3 years and moved from Louisiana to Northern Japan for 5 years. Bayou used to love to run through the snow and play in the rice patties. After we retired from Japan,we moved to Henderson Nevada where Bayou lived out the rest of her life going 4 wheel driving and side by side trips not to mention traveling in our RV.
She was the sweetest and a loving companion to me and my wife.
Good bye sweet girl, you are no longer in pain.
Thank you Dr. Toby for your complete professional assistance in a very hard decision. Your the best.

in loving memory of Tasha aka angel ears

For 13 years Tasha was my baby girl. Her mom Cindy and I loved her so much. Tasha was actually named after a TV i had. Her name as a puppy when we adopted her was June. So to keep her and her brother junior from getting confused. I came up with the name Tasha from the Toshiba tv i had thus Tasha became her name. My 2nd fondest memory of Tasha would be the love she gave Cindy and I every day of her life. Love like Cindy and I had for Tasha and Tasha had for us was unconditional and pure. Every time I saw Tasha she put her ears out like angel wings,thats where she got her nickname Angel Ears. I love you Angel Ears and miss you.

Ace was my best friend, my protector, my assistant in the kitchen (cleaned up anything that fell) . He comforted me when my life was
in turmoil and loved me unconditionally when I
returned from a 3 day trip. Best cuddle buddy
in my whole life. Loved all the animals on my
ranch in his younger years. He saved my Moms
life by waking me up when she collapsed in a
diabetic episode.
Yesterday was one of the most difficult decisions I had to make to allow Ace to crossover. Dr. Toby made it comforting and reassuring that it was
time.
I miss him more than words can express but I know he is whole now and we will be together again. Until then, I Love You Ace. ❤️❤️❤️

in loving memory of Little

We adopted Littles housemates at an adoptathon in NY. Little being 5 years younger was adopted through a seniors program to another family that wanted him to replace their dog that they had just lost. Needless to say Little was not what they were looking for and since we had his brothers they called us right away and offered him to us. We loved every day with Little. He was funny, sweet and loving. Our hearts are broken and we will miss him always. I’m attaching a pic that was taken by a professional photographer at NSAL in Port Washington, NY. It’s Little and his brothers all reunited. Now they are reunited again 💔 PS we also want to thank Dr Toby of NV Pet Hospice for making Little’s transition from this life to the next a beautiful and loving experience for us all.

in loving memory of Bob C

Our sweet boy Bob C crossed the Rainbow Bridge 🌈 today. He was 17. He was my moms boy and when she passed in 2015 I adopted him because I knew how much she loved him and would want him to be loved and taken care of until his time came. Bob C and I drove 8 hours to get to LA from Northern CA. It was a peaceful ride, I felt he knew I was going to protect him for the rest of his days. He went from being a tough outdoor mountain kitty, ruling the land (thus his bent ear), to retiring in the city with my husband and I as an indoor kitty. He transitioned well and we did the best we could to make his new life a good life. I like to think my mother took him back home to be with her today. He was kind of a living link I felt I still had to her life, so it’s especially hard to say goodbye to him. But I am so happy he was a part of our lives, and I believe he enjoyed those last few golden years with us too and I think that would have made my mom very happy. RIP mom and RIP Bob C. 💙💙💙

in loving memory of Coco

Coco came to us Christmas 2006. We We’re getting ready to go have Christmas breakfast at my brothers house and all I could Here was my husband telling this dog to get into the house. I finally asked him who he was talking to and he thought it was a dog cookies because cookie and Coco look identical. The only difference with Coco is that she was skinnier than cookie. Coco was not in the best of shape when we found her but when we took her to her vet he said I am glad that She found You because now she has a chance to live in a long loving life. We loved her and gave her the best life until She took her last breath yesterday. RIP my little CoCo who lived to be almost 23

in loving memory of Porter

Porter was adopted in the mountains of Colorado and despite his short stature he was a hiker from the beginning. He hiked in Colorado, California, Wisconsin, and New Mexico, people loved seeing his tiny legs scurrying up hiking trails. When he was home he was the cuddliest, sweetest, couch-companion.

He was with us for 14 long years and had many many girlfriends. He was a great big brother to Schnitzel and his new little human sister, Audrey. He has left a big hairy hole in our life. We miss him very much.

in loving memory of Venus

Thank you, Dr. Toby, for your positivity and kindness, and for helping us when we really needed it. You gave me something to focus on other than a terrible loss, and for that I am very thankful. Oh Venus, we miss you. All your friends at the park are very sad. Star and Sally miss you terribly. But, we’re focusing on this being a happy sad and remembering our adventures. Oh Venus, we were like pirates from the same ship running around just for the fun of it, and we were thick as thieves every step of the way. I hope I spoiled you enough because you deserve it. You brought a smile to my face several times each day, and I thank you so much for that. I love you and will see you in my dreams.

in loving memory of Archie

Yesterday was one of the hardest days of my life. Saying goodbye to my faithful companion of the last 13 years. You were “rescued” at 1 year old from a shelter. But there is no doubt about who rescued who. No one was happier to see me every day and you always had to be touching me. You were a big ole lap dog and visitors would laugh when you would hop into the Lazy Boy with me. You adjusted well when we moved across country to the desert even though I know you loved running and playing in snow Chicago. I will miss you forever but I know I will see you again. God does allow dogs in heaven I’m sure. Rest easy bub.

in loving memory of Harley

Harley, you were a one of a kind boy! It was love at first sight the day we met and you put on the first of many “hey, look at me” shows! You truly were our little clown. Watching TV or computer videos will never be the same without your “comments” on the animal activity in the video! You could identify commercials by the first note of the music and would jump up to watch. We had so much fun playing catch with your favorite ball; you delighted in snatching the ball out of mid-air!

You never cared where we went or what we did as long as we did it together. We will never forget the love in your eyes when you would lie on our laps just looking up at us. You made our lives better by just being here with your unconditional love and boundless energy. Thank you, sweet Harley. Rest in peace.

in loving memory of Lula

I’m not sure I really have the words I want to honor Lula with, so I’ll let Jim Henson do it instead.

“This looks familiar, vaguely familiar,
Almost unreal, yet, it’s too soon to feel yet.
Close to my soul, and yet so far away.
I’m going to go back there someday.

Sun rises, night falls, sometimes the sky calls.
Is that a song there, and do I belong there?
I’ve never been there, but I know the way.
I’m going to go back there someday.

Come and go with me, it’s more fun to share,
We’ll both be completely at home in midair.
We’re flyin’, not walkin’, on featherless wings.
We can hold onto love like invisible strings.

There’s not a word yet for old friends who’ve just met.
Part heaven, part space, or have I found my place?
You can just visit, but I plan to stay.

I’m going to go back there someday.
I’m going to go back there someday.”

I’m Going To Go Back There Someday from The Muppet Movie, 1979.

Our hearts are breaking today as our 14 year old Malamute, Mia, crossed the rainbow bridge. I’ll forever miss her “I love you’s”, when she’d put her paw on your hand when she wanted you to pet her, the way she danced and pranced when she got excited and the swish in her tail whenever she went for a walk. You were everyone’s favorite. We love you Mia. Rest peacefully.

You popped your head out and of this birthday gift bag for Alexia’s 3rd birthday. It was love at first sight. You brought us so many beautiful memories for 16 years. You filled our home with so much love. We will always keep those memories close in our hearts! We love and miss you so much. Thank you for all the love and support you have given to us. Rest In Peace Sweet Puss. We Love You!

Harley was such a sweet loving dog. The first time I met him he reminded me of a fuzzy baby bear. He was a good cuddle buddy with the kids and enjoyed going on walks around the neighborhood. He was our buddy when we would go out for ice cream and to the park. He loved helping his momma with work in her office and loved swimming. He will be forever missed and loved by the kids and I. RIP Harley.. until we meet again.

in loving memory of Harley

Harley was a big boy
Harley was a good boy
He bought his dad and mom much joy
Sometimes he would even play with a toy

He kept them safe
He kept them warm
He’d always be there waiting
When they’d come home

He stayed with them
As long as he could
If he could have stayed longer
He certainly would

He will be greatly missed
That is a given
But he’s crossed that Rainbow Bridge
And is now in doggie heaven

in loving memory of Harley

After a 2 year wait with a breeder in Colorado, Harley was born one of a litter of 7. When he was 8 weeks old, we drove to Colorado to bring him to his furever home. I’d never had a big dog before, so it was a challenge for me to handle him; he handled me. He was a real Daddy’s boy before his Daddy’s death in 2017. From then on, Harley was my reason for living.

With the 2020 quarantine, he was my lifeline. We were growing old together. He brought me so much joy, company, a reason to live.

I loved my boy and tried everything I could think of to help him when he developed Spondylosis and degenerative Myelopathy in his spine. We got one more year and celebrated his 14th birthday. The house is so empty without him, but I had to let him go when he couldn’t walk any longer. He was my everything and I’ll miss him forever.

in loving memory of Dozer

We got Dozer after two years of dating and was with us through all of life’s ups and downs and taught us so much along the way.

He was with us and our family and friends during sickness and death providing comfort and support during life’s unfair times. He was with us when we left everything we knew behind and moved across the country to begin a new life.

He was with us during our happiest times. He was our white noise machine with his snoring and our personal heater at night when he snuggled up between us. He was there when we got our engagement photos taken. Unfortunately, he couldn’t be there when we said our “I do’s” because bulldog drool and a wedding dress does not match well! But he was waiting at home to love us as soon as we walked through the door like he did every time we left.

He was our only child and was spoiled as such. He got all the fancy dog beds and toys even though his favorite bed was one he got as a puppy that he didn’t even fit in and his favorite toys were plastic bottles and stinky socks. He loved his butt scratches, parks, tennis balls, and Grandma.

When he was first diagnosed, we knew the outcome would be bleak but he chose to fight. He fought for 8 happy, playful, and even more spoiled months until he let us know he was tired of fighting and ready to rest.

We are so fortunate to have had him in our life for the short 7 and a half years he was with us. He will be missed and loved by many.

Tabby was my ray of sunshine. My wonderful, grumbly old lady kitty who lit up my life. She had an opinion about everything, loved saltine crackers (or any crackers), lap cuddles, and sunshine naps. She will forever have a piece of my heart and I’ll miss her always.

in loving memory of Samantha

Samantha and her sister Kami came to me as a gift from my parents in June of 2008. Two years later my parents passed away. Since then they have been daughters. Kami passed away in January of 2018.

Samantha has been the sweetest dog I’ve even encountered. She’s always been there when I was going to rough times and for my friends too. Sometimes she would sense someone in pain and try to cheer them up or comfort them in some way. She was a puppy with a heart of the purest gold and a gentle soul. She always knew how to get extra treats from you with her the look in her eyes.

Samantha was so well behaved that I often walked her without a leash and no one ever bothered me. She was loved by everyone who met her and is now with her sister. I’m sure I will find her again.

in loving memory of Francis

Every morning Francis would wake me up for his morning biscuit, although annoyingly early in the morning he would always make me smile by wiggling his tail and running in circles. His favorite two things in his nearly 17 years of life was CHEEZ-ITs and sticking his head out of the window while having the fresh air blow through his hair. He was independent, loving, intelligent, mysterious, and restless. He was called “Benjamin Francis (button)” because the older he got, the younger he looked. Francis loved traveling, he has been to all of these places multiple times- Naples Florida, Florida Keys, Portland, Oregon, Washington, Southern and Northern California, Duck Creek and Pine Valley Utah. Francis will be greatly missed and is loved by many.

in loving memory of Izzi

On a chilly February day, Izzi found her way into our hearts. We don’t how she got lost, but she found us. Izzi was a beam of light and showed her joy in the simplest things. I think her favorite thing was to be wrapped in a blanket, very snug. I called it a Dorito (doggy burrito) and then carried to her bed for the night. She loved to be just barely chased and nip at her butt with your hands. Her whole rear end would wiggle and her tail swishing. She would run from one room and jump into her bed so it would slide across the hardwood floor. But my favorite times were when she would climb up onto my chest, just look at me for a few moments and then drop her head and cuddle up. A beautiful spirit has moved on. Her energy will be missed and though my heart aches now, she had a full, wonderful life and I thank God for the time we did have with her. We love you, Bean!

It’s been over a year since you left me, and I still think about you every day. You were so brave until the very end. I never stop thinking about how lucky I was that I got to be your human. I know that all of your pain is gone now, but I still miss you.

in loving memory of Keilani

Keilani was born July 25, 2004. Her owner, Stephanie, was in college at the University of Arizona at the time. She wanted a mini dachshund and found an ad in the paper. She picked up Keilani when she was 8 weeks old. Keilani was the runt. She had 1 sister and 2 brothers, and her Mom’s name was Twinkie and her Dad’s name was Eddie.

Keilani loved to sleep in bed. In fact, if someone woke up who she was sleeping with, she would then wander into the next room on the house to find anyone else sleeping so she could snuggle with them.

She also loved suckling. She liked soft stuffed animals and somehow she knew where the head was because she always suckled on the head. She would do this for hours. One time she found a giant white teddy bear about 5 times her size and drug it up her doggy stairs into bed where she suckled its head!

She also loved to sunbathe. We would often times find her on a carpet in the kitchen right where a sliver of light was coming through.

She liked to hunt lizards in the back yard. She also liked to go for easy hikes in the desert and smell everything.

Keilani loved treats and chicken tenders were her favorite. She was 14 years old when she graduated Good Canine Citizen in Lake Havasu.

Keilani helped her mom get through college, optometry school, her first job in Arizona, finding a husband, and most recently moving to Las Vegas to help her Mom open a new business.

Keilani loved rosemary bushes and would often times wander into them, so she would come back inside smelling like rosemary. Every time her mom and dad smell rosemary, they will always think of her.

Keilani’s special day started with watching the sunrise outside with her mom and dad and drinking pool water. Then she took a nap with mom on the couch while mom and dad had coffee. She layed her head on Dads lap while they reminisced about her life. She then enjoyed breakfast in bed, which consisted of cupcake pancakes, ham, bacon, sausage, hash browns, and scrambled eggs. Then, she enjoyed more time outside and inside until she needed another nap. This time, she got to nap in bed with mom, dad and her sister Hershey. Then, her Aunt Natalie came over and she got to eat an In and Out burger in bed! She ate the whole thing! Next came art with her friends and family. She was pooped out after art but had some rotisserie chicken and then another nap in Mom’s arms, while watching Monster’s Inc. She enjoyed her last few hours with her Mom, Dad and sister where they talked about how special Keilani was and how much joy she brought to their lives.
She was with them through so many important life events, and they are so grateful for her. Keilani went to heaven August 1, 2020 and was surrounded by her Mom and Dad who were projecting so much love and giving her hundreds of kisses.

in loving memory of Rupert Burke

Rupert Burke July 13th, 2008- July 28th, 2020

Rupert was born with 7 sisters and was in a kitchen outside of a little playpen running around and around as all of his sisters raced inside the playpen running from one side to the other side and back and forth in a small herd like fashion as he playfully tormented them. That was it, we knew we had found our new friend. On the way over to meet him for the first time, my husband and I were in the car and he said “I’ve always wanted a dog named Rupert”. I said I thought that was a wonderful name for a dog and so it was. We laid eyes on him and he was Rupert. He was a prince of dogs and always got the respect he deserved. He was sweet without being intrusive. He wasn’t the type of dog that was on top of you at every moment. Contrary, you had to give him the affection. When Rupert would suddenly and out of the blue go to you and give you a kiss it was special, you knew he meant it. He was the most loyal dog and wouldn’t leave your side if your were sick. He was an emotional sponge and if you got mad about something you better not let it show or he would shake like a leaf. He kept me from getting angry because I knew what it would do to him. He made me a better person. Rupert was such a humongous part of our family, of our lives. The only good in losing him is knowing he isn’t suffering physical pain anymore. For that I am truly grateful. He is survived by his mom and dad and girlfriend Gemma. Prince Rupert has left his giant paw prints on our hearts and souls forever. We love you darling boy always and forever.

RIP beloved Rupert.

in loving memory of Uber

Born from a prestigious show line of Pedigree, Uber was a gentle giant; loyal and dedicated to his people. A natural born omnivore- he loved eating leafy greens. A head of lettuce core was the only thing Uber would growl over. He was a handsome boy whose best friend was the family cat. He would twirl for breakfast and loved going on adventures to the mountains. An exceptional swimmer who spent many days in the pool and a few laps around lakes. Uber did not care for hunting; he would rather make friends with all of the other animals. He was a cautious and concerned father and was very careful not to step on the babies. He is survived by his life companion, Suki and their 8 pups. He will be dearly missed.

Jasmine, you were our world for the last 11 ½ years and we will miss you more than we can put into words. You brought us unconditional love and immense joy and we will forever treasure our memories of you in our hearts. Tinkerbell and Simba could not have asked for a better big sister and pack leader. You were simply the best doggy ever. You were so brave these past few months in your battle with cancer, but you told us you were ready to be at peace and we knew we had to let you go. You have now fulfilled your purpose in life and completed your journey. We couldn’t have loved you more, Pooh Bear. Amen and Bow-wow.

Dr. Toby and his team could not have been more caring and compassionate throughout the entire process. Our final goodbye was a beautiful and loving tribute to our fur baby in the peaceful setting Dr. Toby helped create in our home. We are forever grateful.

Snagov story
Snagov was a Romanian stray dog I brought it from Romania 18 years ago.
I traveled to Bucharest, my native city to visit my sister. One day we did a trip to Snagov a little town close to Bucharest known as the tomb town of Vlad the Impaler ( Dracula).Driving to this town we ‘ve seen in the middle of the road 5 puppies about 3 month old. I barely stoped the car to don’t hit them, I took them in my car and drove ti the first restaurant in Snagov and let them over with other dogs usualy getting food from the owner of this restaurant. One of them didn’t want to staythere but followed me to my car 2-3 time. I said to myself ” this guy wanna come to America” so I took him I did all vactinations and got with me in my flight back to US. I named him Snagov of course.When he got 7 month old he met Princess a female dog I found it in a Flea market in Ca and I rescued her. They fell in love right away and got merried. They had 5 puppies which later I found them a home. Snagov was a good father he loved Princess who passed away last year.I think he could’t live without her so now they are together. Doctor Toby was his angle, helping him to go in peace to the Animal Paradise.

Harley used to make funny noises every time when he gets excited when me and my mom come over to my grandparents house. When I walked outside in the backyard. I see him and he see me and as I kneel down, he came right towards me and he sniffs and gave me a couple of licks. And sometimes he messes around and runs around in the backyard like a crazy little puppy. He was loved by everyone including me. He was loved by his brother. And especially by his sister who he is now with her. He was also loved by our other relatives who came to visit from time to time. Even though they’re were kinda strangers to him.
But everyone loved him. He will be dearly missed and remembered as time goes by.

in loving memory of Mr. Boots

He was a great kitty. I was 16 and he was 8 weeks old when I adopted him. He was an out door/ indoor kitty for 11 years. He enjoyed laying in the yard and soaking up the sun. He enjoyed destroying the catnip plant. Then he became an indoor kitty when he came back into my life. At first he didn’t like it. Being in a new home with other kitties and not being let out was a bit hard on him. But then he got used to it. Made himself a friendly buddy again for me. I always loved seeing him there to greet me before I left and when I got home. Towards the end he had a lot of medical issues. We did everything we could but we knew we couldn’t keep being selfish. We made the hard decision to help him pass and the best way was here in his home. You will be missed Mr. Boots.

My Special Sunshine,
Sunshine came into my life from a kill shelter at only two yrs old. The minute I saw her big brown eyes begging someone to help her I knew I needed her also. I was advised that she was not going to be there for adoption she needed two surgeries with many other problems. I left with this Special Angel in my arms that lasted 12 short years. Sunshine knew this was her home when we walked in our house, however, the only thing she needed was to kiss me. The bond we shared would never happen again in my life every day was a blessing for us both. Dr. Toby did the surgeries and put her on the road to happiness. When Sunshine became ill I took her to three doctors looking for someone to save her the same answer everywhere “nothing we can do”. I called Dr, Toby he came with so much compassion & his loving care guided Sunshine to the Rainbow Bridge.Our home is only long days and night for my husband and myself. We love you Sunshine.

Kenai 2007-2020
My Beautiful Sweet Boy Kenai has made his transition to Rainbow’s Bridge today. He is now able to run free with no pain and meet his buddies again. Kenai was the most beautiful soul I have ever met. I rescued him in 2009 after he had been to two homes. I’ll never forget when they brought him to our home and he ran directly to me. I told him he was now safe and at his Forever home. I knew he understood. He was gentle and kind. Loved all humans and his fur friends. I have an emptiness inside, however, it was time to let go. He was able to stay at home to make his peaceful transition. Good bye my sweet Angel till we meet again. Always in our hearts.
We love you forever. Mom & Dad. Thank you Dr. Toby for you kindness and loving words. You explained everything. You helped Kenai and us relax. You helped Kenai to be pain free even before his passing. our are a wonderful person. We thank you from the bottom of our hearts. Annie and Dick

My Darby, it’s already been a week since she passed and one of the most difficult weeks ever. Rescued in 2009 from the South Los Angeles Animal Shelter (red listed and scheduled to be euthanized that day) and lived in Huntington Beach, CA until we moved to Vegas in Sept of 2014. Darby was my best friend. She was gentle, full of energy and a super sweet pup. Everywhere we went, people stopped me to tell me they loved my dog.

I knew that I could not keep her forever and that someday it would come to this, I just never knew it would be this soon. I hope that shes having the time of her life up there chasing birds, cats and squirrels and that we can someday reunite. I will miss her until I take my last breath. Love you Darbs!

My sweet baby Figaro…you will be missed more than words can say! It’s been a long journey and we were so blessed to have and hold you for as long as we did! It’s been such a difficult time over the past 3 months after we discovered a cancerous growth before summer started. Rather than put you through all kinds of surgeries that had no guarantees, we decided to let you live out the rest of your days the best we could trying to comfort you along the way. Lap of Love has been a God send to me and my family after having them assist us with our other cat Cody and they were just as wonderful through this difficult time yet again.

Dear Noodle, Boo, Slobber chops, Wibbly Bibbly and the many other silly names we called you.
The house is quiet and somber without you here, there is no huge lump at the end of our bed forcing us to sleep around you.
We miss your singing, your delicate kisses and even your early morning wake ups to need nothing at all.
we miss your sweet sweet face, your funny habits and your drool.
i wrote a poem for you a long time ago

The great grey dane, called a silly name,
watching Noodle sleep causes me no great ashamed,
every twitch, mumble and nauseous gas that escapes,
has me in rapture and hairs raise on my nape,
Boo, Bubba, Bub, my puppy love,
i hold you as my child in all that is above.

in loving memory of Valentine

Valentine, my 16 year old Golden Retriever German Shepherd mix. You were such a good dog. Very loyal, playful, so smart, you always had to be next to me or mom thinking you would miss something. You never left the side of the table during dinner time because I would always sneak you a piece. You were such a big part of my life. Mom always claims she got you for me, but I know she got you for her. Mom was alone and you were always there with her. You would always get out. Roam around and visit the other dogs in the neighborhood. I would be worried that you would never come back..but, you always did and I was so grateful. I remember you would always be so happy going to the dog park. Whether it be to chase squirrels, tennis balls or other dogs. Everyone at the park thought you were such a lively spirit. And you were..Mom and I love you Val. More than you could ever know. I’m happy your not suffering anymore. You will forever be in our hearts.

in loving memory of Buddy

My Buddy is now at the Rainbow Bridge and can walk and run and play. He came to me when he was around a year old and just grabbed my heart and has held it in his paws from that very first moment. Bud will always have a very special place in my heart and I already miss him, his drooling and yes, even his farting. RIP Bud and run fast and free.

in loving memory of Cheyenne

Cheyenne was a rescue from The Buddy Center in Castle Rock, Colorado. She was 4 months old when we adopted her. We named her Cheyenne because it’s Native American meaning is “Red Talker” and that suited our red Siberian Husky who was so vocal. Huskies are known for their ability to “talk” and Cheyenne always had a lot to say. She also loved to sing as we discovered when our son was taking violin lessons and she would join in singing when he was practicing. Cheyenne was a nurturing soul. She had an innate ability to detect our son’s high blood sugars (he has Type 1 Diabetes). She would sit next to him and guard him until his blood sugar returned to normal. She was a playful girl. She once broke the fence down between our backyard and the neighbors so that their dog could come over and play. She loved all of the cats we had over the years and every dog she ever met. She loved snow but hated water. No swimming for her. Halloween was her favorite holiday because she got to greet all the kids in the neighborhood. She loved them all and they loved her back. Halloween will never be the same without her.

My beautiful Cheyenne. The best dog I’ve ever known. Wherever she goes, let there be snow.

in loving memory of Shiro

I lost a treasured friend today,
The big dog who used to lay
His gentle head upon my knee
And share his silent thoughts with me.

He’ll come no longer to my call,
Retrieve no more his favorite ball.
A voice far greater than my own
Has called him to His golden throne.

And though my eyes are filled with tears,
I thank Him for the happy years
He let him spend down here with me
And for his love and loyalty.

GOODBYE, SHIRO! We’ll miss you….

in loving memory of Jimmie

You had an amazing loving spirit and touched all who crossed your path. I’ll cherish the memories of our long walks and great hikes. Will miss your reminders at 4:30pm every day for 9 years, that it was time for dinner.

I will forever miss you as my-wing man delivering golf clubs. Oh the road trips we took and the shady pet friendly hotels we stayed.

Your ferocious closed door warning followed by a gracious open door welcome to all who visited us. You were so proud and such a gentleman. You were a protector of our home, your sister, myself, and all who loved you.

You will be forever living in my heart, as I am so grateful of having you as my best friend.

Rest in peace Jimmie. You are now free to hunt the biggest fields, swim in the biggest lakes and track all the lizards you want.

in loving memory of Annie

I remember the day we got to this house. It was a long trip from Ohio in the back of a van with 4 dogs a cat and two birds. Stopping at every rest stop to relieve ourselves and eat. Finally when we pulled up to our new home in Las Vegas we unlocked the door and let the dogs in. Annie was so excited as were her other friends. We opened the glass sliding door that led to the back and the pool. Annie had never seen a pool. She ran through the open door and into the pool. She was so surprised. One of my funniest memories of my girl, Annie.

Annie we miss you. It was so sad to see you loose your youth. We loved you from the time we first laid eyes on you. You always wanted to please. You were the best.

in loving memory of Rebel

Our sweet Rebel gave 14 great years to us. He’s traveled across the country and hiked to some incredible sites…by “hike” I mean rode in daddy’s arms while we hiked. But he loved it. He grew to enjoy long car rides, he loved Saturday’s at the park, and most of all snuggling close to us in bed. He loved his brother Dallas and he missed his family in Florida. We miss our boy so much. The house is too quiet now without the pitter patter of his little feet following mommy everywhere. Rest In Peace our little boy, we love you.

in loving memory of Scruffy

Scruffy joined our family as an adorable rescue pup that my Mom fell in love with immediately. Mom and Scruffy were inseparable and enjoyed loving each other completely. When I would visit Mom with my sons Scruffy would be there as a very big personality in the house! She loved to eat and earned the well deserved name of chow hound. Mom had a large fenced back yard and Scruffy could be found barking it up with the pack of Yorkies that lived behind them. As my Mom’s health deteriorated Scruff stayed with her constantly and spent my Mom’s last day at her feet on the hospital bed. After Mom passed, Scruffy came to live with me and as my job took me around the US for work, Scruffy went too! She crossed the USA several times and got a chance to visit several National Parks and dog parks along the way. She was a great traveler and always easy to get along with other dogs, a Southern lady for sure. Our Scruffy has been a family member for so long and as I say goodbye to her I am also saying more goodbyes to my Mom, as having Scruff around was a connection to her that was immediate. How amazing that God puts in our lives a friend who loves and enjoys life in the now, no regrets or anticipations to color the moment. I am grateful for Scruffy and the love that she brought to us daily.

in loving memory of Speedy Gonzalez Aka Speedy G Aka Speedofolous (ofolous For Short)

On March 11, 2009, my husband brought Speedy home to play with my yellow lab. Being a big dog type of guy, I saw him and walked right passed him without batting an eye. I thought he was funny looking and I wanted nothing to do with him. He just sat there next to my sofa looking up at me with those “aren’t you gonna pet me” eyes. 24 hours later, I was so in love with this scraggly li’l mutt that I had to have him. I’ve grown up with pets all my life, but as an adult I was very particular about the kind of dog I wanted. Speedy came into my life and changed all of that. He showed me that a dog is a loyal friend and companion no matter what size, color breed, etc. Speedy literally changed my life. My yellow lab lived to be 19 years old. And when he passed, I adopted 5 more of the most amazing mutts. And I have Speedy to thank for them all. He was the matriarch of the bunch. Speedy loved to travel. He was happy to just go around the corner in the car. I owe so much to my ichiban son (that’s number one son in japanese). In January of this year, he was diagnosed with bladder cancer. I was told that he would probably live another 5 months or so. But Speedy was not done with me yet. He managed to live and love for 9 months. When my lab got old, I held on as long as possible because I didn’t have the heart to let him go. But I promised Speedy back in January that, no matter what I have to do and how much pain it would cause me, I would not let him suffer the way LuckyBoy did. The first indication Speedy gave me that he wasn’t feeling well, I fed him all the junk food he could eat and hugged him and loved him so much that he was ready to go. I like to think that I gave him a good life. But in all actuality, he gave me a good life. In all my life, I’ve never had a friend like Speedy. I will miss my friend and companion for the rest of my life. Rest easy my sweet Speedy G. You were the best thing that ever happened to me and I will never forget you.

in loving memory of Rusty

Today we are sad, we lost our sweet, precious cat Rusty also known as ” the Gentle Giant”. Rusty liked to voice his opinions and would always let us know when it was time to bond. Rusty lost his brother, Tank, six months ago and he grieved. As brothers do they always had each others back and now that they are united again they will romp and play and protect those smaller and weaker as they did in life
Have fun boys and know that you are loved, missed, and will always be remembered. You brought such joy, love, and laughter to our lives.

in loving memory of Samson

On Saturday, October 12th, 2019 our family had to say goodbye to our dear sweet Samson. His body was being consumed with tumors and his back legs just weren’t working like they used to. I couldn’t imagine a more loving and loyal dog than this little guy. He lit up our lives and brought us so much joy. We will miss his downward dog stretching in the morning and the rhythm of his little snore; sometimes not so little- haha. He was very playful and was always so great with our girls, Tori and Madison. 13 years with this little guy right by my side all the time. He wouldn’t leave a room unless I left first; loyal to the very end. He was an incredible gift to our lives. We have no doubt that he feels like a puppy again and he’s reunited with his best friend, Charlie in Heaven. Although we are feeling heartbroken and the house feels empty without him, we are so grateful for the endless memories with him that we will cherish forever.

in loving memory of Tahoe

It is with a very heavy heart that I announce that our Labrador Retriever “Tahoe” has crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Tahoe truly lived a charmed life of just over 14 years and now she can join her “sister” and partner in crime and mischief “Sahara” our German Shepherd who left us almost two years ago.

When Tahoe first joined our family as a puppy she was warmly greeted by Sahara who was 1.5 years old. Sahara soon taught Tahoe all of the tricks of living in the woods as at the time we lived on the foothills of Mt Hood in Zigzag, Oregon. Squirrels were the number one prey for those two.

When she was only 8 months old I had just finished BBQ’ing a 5lb whole chicken. I had it cooling off on the cutting board in the kitchen and upon passing by I noticed it was missing. When I walked into the kitchen I saw the cutting board on the floor and a young Lab looking at me with a wing in her mouth. She promptly swallowed it and there was not a speck of evidence left. She ate the whole chicken carcass and all!

Throughout the many camping trips and fishing and hunting adventures Tahoe was truly a sportsman’s dog. One time Sahara, Tahoe and I were in my old Jeep and were checking out hunting areas. I crawled up this old logging road for about a half an hour checking things out. When I reached the top I looked back and Tahoe was nowhere to be found. The back of my jeep was empty. It was just Sahara and myself (Sahara looked as startled as I was that she wasn’t there). I drove back down the road asking people that I passed if they had seen a Lab. Finally after going about three miles I got out my binoculars and spotted a black dot moving around in a river another half mile down the road. When I got there Tahoe looked up and calmly jumped back into the Jeep all soaking wet after having spent the last 45 minutes swimming in a portion of Hood River.

Besides retrieving ducks, one of her most favorite things to do was to go crabbing or crawfishing with me. As soon as I would approach the buoy that was floating on the end of the trap she would leap off the bow of the boat and retrieve it for me. The one problem I occasionally had was that I was usually crabbing during Salmon season and the seals and sea lions would also be in the bay. Tahoe would try and go play with them at times thinking they were her friends.

Once while on a road trip with my oldest daughter Mikayla as she was visiting prospective colleges to attend we stopped at Montana State in Bozeman, MT. Just as they were telling the prospective students about their famed ducks on campus and the fines that are issued if somebody harms one, Tahoe slips out of the motorhome and then I’m heard yelling “Tahoe leave those ducks alone” as she is running towards her prey. Fortunately I caught her but I think at that point Mikayla immediately eliminated Montana State as an option and tuned out the rest of the campus tour that day.

Another time when I was in Florida visiting my mom I had Mikayla in charge of watching the dogs. A freak situation that caused a gap in my fence (that I’m pretty sure happened as the results of Mikayla’s dog Molly who was an escape artist) resulted in Tahoe going missing. Kayla was very upset and called me at around 2:00 AM Eastern Time. Long story short after face book posts and looking on Craigslist Tahoe was eventually found. When Kayla went to pick her up she found that she was being treated like a queen. They fed her pizza and she even slept with them in their bed. I’m pretty sure Kayla took Tahoe back over to their house a couple of times for visitation because their kids enjoyed her so much.

Tahoe spent the last two years of her life living in Henderson, NV. She would sunbathe daily and up until recently would swim in the pool every day, with nine to ten swims daily not being uncommon. She recently celebrated her 14th birthday (one month ago to the day) but unfortunately that was to be her last.

Today Tahoe enjoyed her last meal one that I am proud to say was chocked full of all of her favorites (livers, chicken hearts, gizzards, squirrel, duck, chicken, bacon, beef steak, hamburger, cheese, select sausages, French fries as well as some whipped cream for dessert). Yes she eagerly munched it down. I can honestly say from the time she entered our life as a puppy up to and including today she never once missed a meal.

Today we enjoyed our last meal and beer together.

Run free Tahoe! You are now free of all your pain. I’m sure Sahara will greet you and show you around just like she did when you first joined our family.

RIP Tahoe!!! You will be missed.

in loving memory of Mocha

Mocha was a very loving, affectionate, happy and lively boxer to the end. She was a special part of our family. She was always so welcoming to everyone that came to our home. We would always tell people she looks big and scary, but she won’t hurt you, but she may lick you to death. Everyone loved her so much (friends and family). She always had to be in the mix of whatever was going on. She would wander around the house, the garage, front yard and back where ever people were checking up on all. She wanted to be a part of everything. She was like one of us. She would always follow the kids around or whoever was home, but as soon as I (mom) would get home she was right by my side and would follow me everywhere even if it was just to the next room. She loved to have her belly rubbed. It was always so funny when you would rub her belly. Her legs would start kicking like crazy cause it felt so good. It was so cute and funny. One of the last things I remember and had me laughing because of how smart she was when she was in the front yard and a lady had entered the gate and was walking to the front door. Mocha walked with the lady to the front door no problem, but as soon as they got to the door Mocha walked inside turned around and sat in the doorway and started barking. The lady had told me what happened, and I laughed and hugged and praised Mocha. She was such a smart and loving dog. Mocha we love you and miss you so much already!

in loving memory of Charger

In the most loving and caring memory of my handsome prince Charger. Charger was the runt of the liter and the last to be wanted. I drove down from Lake Tahoe and scooped him up at just 6 weeks old. He was so little. He would sleep on my chest at night and subsequently never broke the habit of wanting to sleep in bed with me, even when he grew to be the size of a small human lol. I used to blow my breath into his nose when his eyes were barely open. I wanted him to always know my smell as one of comfort. As he passed I did the same so he would know that his mom was there and he was safe. Charger loves to play ball more than any dog I’ve ever met. He was loved by all who met him. He was the sweetest, kindest, most loving animal and I could not have asked for more. He loves me more than anyone or anything. He travelled the world with me and went on so many adventures and met so many people. My best friend and companion is gone and my heart will forever be broken and I will always fee a hole where he once was. I am so grateful to Las of love for giving him the passing he deserved. In dignity, in the comfort of his home, surrounded by warmth and love.

in loving memory of Jack

I met Jack at West Flamingo Animal Hospital, after he’d been hit by a car and animal control picked him up in the middle of Tropicana. Animal control took him to the closest animal hospital to be destroyed because you know Dobermans are ferocious dogs. Lucky for Jack the staff at the hospital called a woman that bred Dobies, and she got in contact with DRNV and the rest is history. He came to us in Aug 2008, with no name – he looked like a Jack to me and he must have liked it because he responded to it immediately. He was the best dog ever, protector and friend – always knew how a face lick would cheer you up!

Starley Jack was a blessing. She evolved into quite a character. She will always be loved and missed. She is an inspiration for me. I have never seen a dog fight so hard to live. With her pain, she still managed to show love. She had a strong desire to stay with me no matter what. Finally her pain and condition could not be handled any longer. She is @ peace now.

She was my shadow, my happiness, my delight and was capable of driving a motorhome, killing trespassing cats in her yard, and danced daily under the swing. Although I was a breeder, I could not sell her..she had stolen my heart at birth. My pain at her loss is my selfishness, knowing objectively she is free of earthly pain. Demi, forever in my heart.

in loving memory of Dot

Dot chose us one night when we were at a friend’s house. At some point, a precious, energetic grey tabby kitten was in my lap in an instant, claiming me as her Human. On the way home, you stood on all fours in my lap, looking out the window with great excitement. You knew you were going to live in a wonderful home, with a Mom and Dad who would spoil you and give you whatever you wanted. When it was brought up what we should name you, we decided on Dot, because you were such a tiny little girl, but you didn’t know that. You carried yourself like a proud Queen, knowing that you mattered and that you were worth more than gold. You immediately made friends with our senior Maine Coone, Valdiz, who returned the love just as quickly. Your friendship with him kept him young and fit. After all, he had to keep up with a little fireball who had suddenly come into the house. You loved your stuffed blue fish, and often brought it to us as a gift, or a way of showing your love. From this, you taught me generosity. You loved to be petted and scratched behind the ears and under the chin as most kitties do. But you didn’t like to be held. Oh no, not you – being held meant losing a little bit of your fierce independence, and you would have none of that. You did love to jump onto our shoulders to get a higher perspective; you loved to sit in the upstairs window around 10 am every day, and catch the sunshine in the east. You were an expert sunbather, I believe. Later on, you met Dash, a slightly younger female tabby. You weren’t the greatest of friends, but you respected each other – you gave each other the space you both needed, ate together, and slept on the same bed. Sometimes, you did groom each other for just a moment. From this, you taught me tolerance. You lived until you were nearly 18 years old. You went through many life changes with us, including three houses, financial difficulties, family deaths, job losses, and personal accomplishments. From this, you taught me to go with the flow and live in the present.

When we finally said goodbye to you, it was so hard to believe that you have been one of our life’s anchors. Seeing us in all stages of our lives, you remained calm, constant, and resilient. In the face of all the changes of our seasons, you never changed. Yet, always present, always loving. You will always be our Dot.

in loving memory of Koda

Koda blessed me with his presence in 2006. I adopted him from an animal shelter. They said he was found wandering the streets in north Las Vegas and assumed he was either 1 or 2 years old. He was the perfect gentleman and the sweetest dog I had ever met. The day after I adopted him I got a call from the animal shelter saying that he was scheduled to be euthanized but they ran out of the serum and he was going to be the first the next day. This angel of a woman who worked there decided after playing with Koda that he should not be put down. I adopted him the next day and we have given each other 14 years of unconditional love, protection, comfort, and commitment. His favorite thing in the whole world was eating…even though I’m pretty sure he didn’t taste anything in the way he inhaled everything. He loved going out and suntanning…no matter how hot it was outside. When he was younger he loved destroying…not playing with toys. He loved tug of war and going for walks. He used to run around in the back yard chasing shadows. He was really easy to please as long as he was with me.

You were my companion for almost 15 years – that wasn’t long enough time with you. I have never been truly alone because you.

It was a blessing to take care of you, receive your kisses, and to be in your presence. You will always be my baba. We love you Hercules. Mom & Dad
