Cash was all about love. He loved his humans, his brother & sister, cuddling, the ball, swimming, and especially peanut butter. Not even cancer and a resulting amputation could keep this strong boy down. He taught us about perseverance, to live in the moment, and appreciate each day.
We are forever grateful to Gentle Goodbyes. They made it possible for us to be by his side during his final moments, which would have otherwise been impossible in the midst of a pandemic. Cash hated the car so his final moments were not spent in a state of stress. He was able to cross the rainbow bridge on his favorite bed in his own backyard. Until we meet again, Sweet Boy...
Heineken took the term "pugnacious" a little too seriously! All that aside, he was incredibly sweet, loving, and loyal. We spent 16 years together and he demonstrated unconditional each day. He lived to be by our side and his favorite times of the day were meal times.
Gentle Goodbyes made it possible for us to be by his side during his final moments. This otherwise wouldn't have been possible during a pandemic and we are forever grateful. He hated the car and going to the vet so providing him a stress-free environment was a huge relief. His final moments were spent in our arms as he crossed the rainbow bridge. Until we meet again, Little Man...
Louis joined our family in August 2013 when we adopted him from SPCA at age of 7 years old.
We had a happy 7 and half years together! Thank you, Louis, for giving us your love!
Louis was a tender boy who loved to cuddle. He gave us peace and happiness!
When he jumped; he softly floated to his landing, what a graceful boy he was.
Louis spoke so many words. His vocabulary was complete. Raucously or gently, he let us know what he was thinking.
Whether he was lying on your pillow, behind your head on a chair, or on your lap; he always let you know he wanted to be near you.
The love we had for him should help him in his New Life where he is assuredly letting his friends, new and old, know what's on his mind.
He will not be forgotten. We always will have him in our hearts.
You were fast, strong, and loved hunting birds. You were so beautiful to watch when you ran the rocky hillsides. We knew when you would have a bird-hunting dream during your daytime naps. Your legs would twitch and you would make quiet, soft barking sounds.
Even though you loved to hunt birds and squirrels, you were always good with your "pack": your little sister-dog Dixie, your sister-kitty Ophelia, and human brother and human sister when they were babies, and the backyard chickens...You never engaged with other misbehaving dogs. You just loved to run, and in your last few years, to walk. You grieved for your old dog-sister China and howled when she passed. Our collective hearts broke that day, and yours did too. You were loyal and never held a grudge. If only we could be as pure of heart as you were.
We miss your hopeful eyes when you knew you were about to have dinner or go on a walk or run. You appreciated a good dip in the river for a cool down on hot summer days. You also appreciated a good hunt, and running, running, running.
This last year of staying at home, we walked alot and breathed in the fresh air. Those eyes deceived us at 17 years old, with your face that turned mostly white, still full of hope and enthusiasm, because your body betrayed your heart and mind. Your eyes could not see as well, and your ears could not hear as much, and your legs sometimes buckled - the legs that used to take you on many miles of running. Those moments were tough to see. It should not have hurt you when we scratched behind your ears and rubbed your back. It should not have hurt to get up from your dog bed or walk around the house. You should not have had to look back to make sure we were behind you on walks. You should not have had to worry when we weren't home because your senses were failing. We knew it was time and we didn't want it to be true...
We still look for you on the dog bed, but all that is left is the blanket.
Our hands feel empty on the walks without your leash and you taking the lead.
We hope you are dreaming in your forever rest about running in the foothills, hunting for birds with the wind blowing on the fur of your handsome face. "A-wooh!"
She was a trooper fighting Pituitary Cushings and Arthritis till almost 14 years old.
We adopted Paddy from IHS in 2007 when she was approximately 10 months old, and we were her third adoption. Aussies are very active and she was a challenge but we overcame everything and I can say that
she was meant to be ours. Our hearts are hurting right now but fortunately we have many pictures to remind us of the good times. Our adult kids like to tell us that if we took as good of care of them as we did Paddy
they would have never grown up and left home. We like to think that Paddy took care of us.
We sent Mabel on to her reward this morning. She will be reunited with her brother Rocky, who passed in 2014. Mabel had chronic kidney disease, plus a litany of medical issues owing to her age. The final straw was fluid on her heart.
Mabel was my companion for 22 years. She loved going into the garden at our house in Maryland, and would stalk the little critters that lived below. She once brought a mouse she caught indoors, where she and Rocky continued to hunt it.
After my retirement, she moved with me to Idaho, where she quickly found the sunny spots, indoors and out. I loved her very much, she was a constant presence in my life and I will miss her very much.
Max joined us when he was about a year old, abandoned and abused. He was a gentle giant who loved everyone and most of all his best buddy, our lab Cooper. We moved to Boise 6 1/2 years ago and live on a golf course. Every day he greeted the golfers and they always had treats for him and a pet on the head. He was a very good dog and we will miss him terribly. The unconditional love and friendship of our dog will live in our hearts forever.
Chloe came to us as a rescue dog when she was about 4 and she was in our lives for 8 years. Even though she was small she had a big personality and was tough. She was protective and she was cuddly. We will miss her being underfoot in the kitchen waiting for a scrap to fall (not always by accident - dad ?). Thank you Gentle Goodbyes for taking such good care of her on her final day.
It was hard to say goodbye to my beloved best friend of 15 yrs, Doc Hoillday. He never left my side and was always there for me through good and bad times. He went to many places with me. 4 Provinces of Canada, Alberta, Saskatchewan, British Columbia, Yukon. The Great last frontier, Alaska. He ran through the coast and swam many rivers in Alaska. Tasted Moose, Caribou, Halibut and King Salmon. He had a good life that a canine could ever ask for.
We adopted Buddy 11 years ago, there isn't much pre story we got besides he was living in a bad house. After adopting him, we quickly realized that he didn't have a mean bone in him, and just wanted to be loved.
He only wanted to be fed and be by your side, or if you'd let him, lay on top of you. Buddy had this bright, gentle personality and made friends everywhere he went. His last couple years were spent traveling in a van seeing the state of Idaho on the weekends and sleeping on my bed during the weekdays. Such a good boy!
We just love him and his sweet soul so much!
This is our beautiful "orange and white one", Bashy. He lived with our family for 12 years. He was a cautious kitty but very comfortable in his home that he shared with other fur babies and his humans.
He was an awesome, happy, and VERY loved cat. He had a way of making us smile, and letting us know that he loved us as much as we loved him. He was especially happy when he was "tearing it up" for his boy, on his perch with his paws that were declawed. He was also happy laying in the sun by the patio door.
As painful as it is to not have him anymore, we know he's "tearing it up" and feeling good.
Maggie was our playful, loving girl. She was our first baby. She would chase us around the house as a puppy, and bite our feet. Later on, we learned she loved to play hide and seek.
Although our family grew by two babies, and two other dogs she remained very special to us. For 14 years she blessed our family with her love. We miss her so much.
We love you Maggie Sue.
Maggie was born on May 11th, 2004 and made it 4 days past her 17th birthday. For most of that time, she was a constant fixture on Grandma's arm, until Grandma had to leave us in late 2019.
We let Maggie go when she told us it was time, and Gentle Goodbyes made it a very peaceful passing in the place she loved most this last year....in our backyard with the green grass, trees, squirrels
and chirping birds ready to carry her soul on the gentle breeze to the Rainbow Bridge.
Our sweet boy Rusty was almost 11 when we said goodbye to him on 05/17/2021. Rusty was the best dog we've ever had or known - everyone loved him!! Rusty loved to play fetch and would play forever if we didn't stop so he could rest and get some water.
Rusty went blind almost 5 years ago and adapted so smoothly. He was such a smart dog - learning stairs, a new house, several new commands, and how to have a little brother all within the last year and a half!! Rusty set the gold standard for all future dogs to live up to!!
Rusty - we love you so much and are so grateful for the time we had with you!! We are blessed for having had you as our pet! We hope you are having a blast being able to play fetch and run around again!! ❤️
This picture is one of our favorite pictures of S'more when she was about 2 years old backpacking into the Boulder White Clouds east of Stanley, Idaho.
She had many more adventures with us as our kids grew up and her love for us and ours for her will be remembered forever. She got to go camping one
last time at Penny Spring in mid-May which is another favorite Idaho place. We're sure she is romping somewhere with our other dogs who transitioned
before her and really appreciate all you did to make our 'Goodbye' so much easier on her as well as us. Thank you!
Linus was 12 when he joined our family - a rescue from the Idaho Humane Society, and we enjoyed his company for nearly nine years! He was the sweetest cat I've ever seen - soft, silky hair, and purring constantly. (I called him my purr-kitty.) Even at the end of his long life, he never complained. I miss him, and look forward to the day I can hear him purr again.
Caitlin went to sleep this morning, in the living room. She will not be waking up. 8 ½ year setter, otherwise in her prime. She had been doing so well, we had become optimistic that she would make it through the cardiomyopathy.
The damned grain-free diet took its toll. But the Cardio Vet warned us that she was at high risk for this.
Caitlin as a very young dog, somewhere around Flagstaff, AZ.
Tumbleweed blew into our lives unexpectedly just like a real Tumbleweed. I was out walking the dog we had at that time along a highway near where we lived in Wyoming when a tiny, skinny kitten called to us and ran right up to us. Unfortunately my dog tried to attack her at first so I picked her up and carried her home in my shirt as she bit my thumb the whole way and made it bleed. She was quite a little demon and would jump on my back biting my long braid as I cleaned her litter box and loved wrestling with the dog once he accepted her. She loved playing fetch with paper balls and made up her own games. She became a beloved member of our family for 19 years and loved both of her dog brothers until their passings. She started as a little demon who loved tormenting me and left us as a true loving little angel after dealing with kidney disease and suffering a stroke. Strongest, bravest little kitty I've ever known. Through all the poking and prodding she went through with her illnesses she never cried and fought hard to stay with us till she could take no more. A real true lady full of determination, pride, and dignity.
The first few years of his life were hard and then he was discarded in the drop box at the Idaho Falls Shelter. He was going to be put down when Boise Bully Breed rescued him and gave him his new name Casanova, Caz for short. We got him the day he came to Boise. He was 50 lbs, about 15 lbs underweight. The first time we saw him he looked like a huge head on skinny legs. Within 10 minutes of being in the house he came over to me, put his big head on my lap and did the "grumble". That was it we were adopted! He was with us for 11 years till he had to go over the rainbow. He traveled to New York with us for about 5 years and had 2 brothers, Snoop and Dre, through my daughter's dogs. He had numerous nicknames but my favorite was smooch pooch, because he loved to get and give big wet smooches. It's hard not hearing him around the house, not sleeping with him on the bed or seeing him in the yard sunbathing, but he was sick and it was time for him to go. I let him know I would miss him like crazy but I would be ok and that he needed to go have fun now on the other side of the rainbow bridge. Caz went peacefully while in his yard surrounded by those who loved him the most, getting smooches till the end.
He was the best dog a dog owner could ask for. A carb lover at heart. And a dog that enjoyed all the smells. My after showers aren't quiet the same without him nuzzling into my wet hair. My toes are less wet. And my bed is less occupied.
I miss my kids painting the dog with makeup. I also miss teaching an old dog new tricks. He might of been old, but he learned how to shake with both paws about two years ago. Our home is certainly more quiet without the sounds of his long
nails clacking on the floor. We miss you so much bub n stuff. Run free my boy, I hope you're enjoying all the bread. ❤️
Nana was a gentle giant with a dash so sass who taught me about living life in the moment and being happy no matter what the situation.
She was a master at living a zen life and I miss her spirit and loud wagging tail every day. Thank you for being the perfect dog for this stage of our life.
You will be missed.
I had to have Bella put to sleep earlier this week because she could no longer walk or eat much. I am deeply sad to have lost her. She walked with me thru many difficult moments and changes in my life and made me feel loved every day for almost 13 years. It was very difficult to let her go . Even at 12 1/2 years she still felt like my baby and at the same time my best friend .My home seems empty and my heart will take time to heal but I am so grateful to God for the gift that she was in my life.
Our Beautiful Kit-t. Abandoned in California, and adopted by my daughter, and she brought you to us in Idaho. kit-t gave us all the love she had and we did for her. You will be so close because you will be right inside our hearts.
Up in Heaven is where you are now waiting for the day we will all see each other again.
Truly a man's bestfriend Sisi would always bring our family closer together with her bright personality and the small things she would do to make us laugh. Things won't ever be the same without her the opportunity your staff brought to our home was simple and very professional they were very sweet to us from the beginning and treated Sisi with so much respect thank you again.
Remi came to us at 4.5 weeks old. Her mama was a beautiful beagle, her daddy was the neighborhood "tramp". Her people said "you take her or she goes to the pound." So we found a way and fed her every two hours til she was strong. She was a huntress, loved chasing birds, mice and squirrels. She tore the siding off hunting a mouse. She hated guns, fireworks, vets and medicine. She gave us 11 yrs of unconditional love. She's out chasing squirrels again in the sun. Love, Mark, Julie, Al, Alex, Jacob, and Madison...
Charlie was born in Virginia and made his way to Massachusetts where he was adopted at the Northeast Animal Shelter. For his first five years he went to work everyday at a golf course and made many friends and countless memories. The second half of his life was spent in Idaho where he hiked the foothills and was always patient and adoring to our kids. He led a great life and will be missed.
Our sweet girl came into our lives on June 21st, 2014 just before her first birthday. She was a rescue and had been terribly abused and took some great love for her to learn to trust us. She could be stubborn but was so full of love. There's a gaping hole in our family now. Not sure we will ever get over losing her. Hug your babies tight. Take them to the vet if you suspect anythings wrong. Don't wait. Had we not hesitated we might have saved her. Rest easy baby Lil til we can hold you again. 08/07/2013 ~ 01/30/2021
Thank you so much for your compassionate and professional manner when we had to put our beloved dog, Zeke, down on Monday, 2/8/21. I wish you had known him longer because he truly was an ambassador for not only boxers, but dogs in general. HE chose us at the Boise Humane Society 12 years ago and it was an easy choice to bring him home. He got along extremely well with many other dogs (Camp Bow Wow in Meridian will attest to that), and he absolutely loved running in the foothills and going on hikes anywhere we took him. He will be sorely missed, but we know he had a great run with us and his memories will always bring a smile to our faces and to those who knew him. Thank you again for your kind way of caring for him (and us) as the sun set on him on 2/8/21.
Casey was a wonderful dog. She was our baby girl. She was always there to greet us when we got home with her smiles, her kisses, and wagging tail. She made even the worst day fade away and all was better. She will be missed dearly, but we will see her again someday. Until then we will always remember her little quirks and the way she made our hearts full.
"Gizmo" We recently had our 15 year old black lab, Gizmo, put down with you guys. It was a very pleasant experience and we are glad that your company exists to handle matters like these. Gizmo went peacefully in our backyard with all the ducks and geese making noise in the background. Gizmo loved to chase off the geese, ducks, and squirrels when she was in her prime (she even caught a squirrel and a duck one time back in her hayday!). Gizmo also loved the water: she hated taking her baths, but she loved running into lakes and rivers and would swim forever if she could!
"Milo" We adopted Milo as a rescue just three years ago along with his companion, Misty. Those three years were full of love and joy. Milo was a character who danced like a circus dog over the joy of being fed. We are heart-broken over losing him so soon, but thankful that his good-bye was gentle and in his own yard.
"Dax" was a gentle giant trapped in an ornery, little body. He loved to cuddle during sleep time, and he was always there to nurse anyone back to health during illness season. He loved to play fetch, as long as you were willing to do a lot of the work. His eccentric little charms will be greatly missed. Love ya, buddy!!
Sandy was a rescue dog that we had for a little over three years. Sandy was born without any hind feet. In spite of his handicap, he loved to run and play and hop around like a fool when he was happy. In the short time we had him we discovered he also enjoyed going for rides and camping. He became a loved member of our family. He will be greatly missed.
Dash was the best companion we could have ever asked for. She spent the first part of her life riding shotgun with my father all across the continental U.S. in his semi truck then after his passing she spent the second half of her life with my husband and I. She loved road trips, enjoying the outdoor sun, and any little treats she could get. She was fiercy loyal and will forever have made a furry imprint on our hearts.
Lellow- He was so much a part of our lives and family for 15 years. He was an extraordinary family cat. He would walk my 4 kids to the elementary school not far from us every day and then somehow knew when they would get out of school too and pick them up on the corner again. He always tried to go on walks with us too. He was always gentle and would let you carry him around and rarely got upset. He was an outside cat, but he loved to nap with everyone when in the house along with getting a daily lick of cream. He was a great mouser and caught a lot of birds outside. Lellow is greatly missed by our family! He loved to play with pipe cleaners and would attack and chase them and we all loved watching him play and his cheeks get puffy when he was playing. He was always here when anyone came home to greet you and give loves. We miss him so much but are grateful we could say goodbye to him here at home, giving him comfort and love right to the end.
Cleo, I could not have asked for a better furry friend. My little friend was a kitten who had been fostered for 4 ½ months. I was looking for a kitten to adopt and this goofy looking profile kept popping up. I searched for a good month for the right one, finally thought I had one, wrong, they had already been adopted. The funny part is goofy kitten picture and profile were also hanging on the wall. I go to the front desk and the young lady says, well there is this little kitten, you guessed it, GOOFY KITTEN! I decided to listen to the universe and paid her adoption fee right away. I was fortunate enough to have adopted one of the sweetest kittens. Who can find something wrong with a kitten who hugs you. I could never have foreseen we would say goodbye 12 years later, March 14, 2021. Little girl, you are still so very missed and yes, I'm crying as I type this.
Abigail Marie Coleman was a beautiful Border Collie and Blue Heeler mutt mix. This beautiful soul was fortunate to live by her dad, Andy Coleman's side for 15 years. Her brother Maximus Todd Coleman left us back in 2019 and Abby went to join alongside her brother on Monday, the 16th of August; which was 1 month to the day going on two years that Maximus had passed away.
They spent their days running free on the beaches of Hawaii, alongside their dad as he threw their ball until they could no longer play anymore. Abigail was a dog who was bound to her dad's side until the very end. Her candle flame lit through the dark and light days. She always enjoyed a good belly rubbin', a good scratchin' between the eyes, and she loved kisses on her nose. She hated baths, or brushings, strangers, and thunderstorms.
In August, her candle flame may have blown out, but will forever remain burning in our hearts to the ones who had the privilege in crossing paths with Abigail. Her time spent on Earth is forever cherished as we say our final fairwell.
I grew up with Millie. She was the first life I was fully responsible for while I was figuring out how to be an adult. She was the best partner in crime I could have ever asked for. She was as sweet as they come. She never met a stranger. She loved the fresh mountain air and would visibly come alive when she could sense it. Our partnership started in the mountains near Jackson Hole, were she entertained guests on a dude ranch and the staff we worked with. She stole many hearts in 14 years. She spent most of her time as mine and then my families' companion, but she was well rounded. She did some duck hunting her earlier years then changed her career to upland game. She loved to go camping and fishing and to run along side the 4 wheeler. She taught our other dog all of his good habits. We knew it was time when she didn't want to go camping and no longer wanted to come inside the house along with her physical pain and failing body. I miss her dearly and I'm crying as I'm typing this knowing I am not doing her justice with these few words, but I am relieved she is no longer suffering in silence.
We were lucky to have adopted her from the Idaho Humane Society nearly 6 years ago when she was 8 and we had an wonderful time with her. She lived to fetch, eat, pulling fluff out of toys and snuggling on the couch. She was a good girl and we will miss her so much.
Thank you again for all your help and kindness,
To my friends who came to know Emma, she was 15 and has struggled a while with respiratory issues. But in the last several days, she grew tired of trying and gave me permission to let her go. It was in her familiar place and bed at home with me beside her, no fear or pain. Thanks to "Gentle Goodbyes, a mobile vet service for making this possible, If all the people in the world had the simple love and beauty of a dog's soul, it would be a better place. Perhaps when it is my time, she will be there to guide me. For now, goodbye to Emma, my last dog. Judy
My handsome Heathcliff was the "Quintessential House-Cat" He loved his kibbies and his laser... the only 2 things that got him moving. Everyone commented on his beauty; he was my Phantom of the Opera, my Heafy, my Hef-Clef, my Fat-Man Heafers, and the upside-down-cat. He was my first baby and will be forever missed. Thank you Heathcliff, for spending your life with us and giving your all towards the end. I will adore you forever, and I hope you're with your Catherine in the great beyond xoxoxo
Our dear Lab, crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on Saturday August 28th. She was nearly 14 years old. She was the most loving dog and was my constant companion. I will always remember the joy she brought into my life and remember her sweet face. Thank you Gentle Goodbyes for making her trip over the rainbow bridge a peaceful and comforting time for her and for us.
Kathy and Scott
We wanted to thank you for giving us the opportunity to say goodbye, to our precious little buddy Cisco, in the comfort of his own home. You are truly a network of Angels and we will always be forever grateful to you.
Thank you for doing what you do and for doing it so well. You are all heroes.
Lilo was the most empathetic friend I have ever known. She was always there to sit on your lap or give the biggest lean as she stood beside you. Lilo loved every being she came in contact with and just made my world a more gentle and kinder place.
Gentle Goodbyes truly did honor her and made her transition and mine easier.
Four Feet in Heaven
Your favorite chair is vacant now...
No eager purrs to greet me.
No softly padded paw to run
Ecstatically to meet me.
No coaxing rubs, no plaintive cry
Will say it's time for feeding.
I've put away your bowl, and all
The things you won't be needing;
But I will miss you little friend,
For I could never measure
The happiness you brought me,
The comfort and the pleasure.
And since God put you here to share
in earthly joy and sorrow;
I'm sure there'll be a place for you
In Heaven's bright tomorrow...
- Alice E. Chase

When golden eyes no longer glow, and we both know it's time to go,
Don't look at me with eyes so sad, but think of better times we had,
When sunlight did shine, and happy days were yours and mine,
And through the grass we both did run, and on our backs we felt the sun,
Think not of hopelessness and pain, but think of joy and laugh again,
For in that final act of love, you released me to heaven above,
Where finally from pain I'm free, where one day you will join with me,
Where together again we will rejoice, and you and I as with one voice,
Will in perfect harmony sing, of the joy and pain that love can bring,
And remember me just as I will, always think of you until,
At last again I see your face, grieve not, I am in a better place.
Marco came to us as a 6 week old kitten. We were honored to have him in our lives for over 17 years. He gave us love, joy and lots of laughter over the years. We catered to him in the last few years of his life. He loved his cream in the mornings, tuna and chicken and when he smelled these things he came running. We always knew that we lived with him, not the other way around. He is with his brother and sister in kitty heaven now. He is young and healthy, chasing birds and butterflies and running wild. We miss you Marco and will always be in our hearts.
Sharing my favorite picture of my wonderful Newfies - Yogi and Teddie - whose physical presence left in 2021 but their spirits remain. Such an interesting and unique breed that provided endless devotion and unlimited love. RIP my gentle giants.
Thank you, Gentle Goodbyes for handling their passing in the most supportive and compassionate way. You made it bearable to say goodbye, and I appreciate that.
When he was young, Nelson ran so fast that we said if we were ever crazy enough to give him a cape, he could fly and then once above the trees, he'd be gone. We know now what that might have felt like. He was the kindest and gentlest of old souls in a world that early on had been very unkind to him. In spite of the fact that he was often scared of this world, he never lost his enormous capacity for joy. Whether making sand angels on the beach, running free in a mountain meadow or just trotting down a trail in the foothills, his happiness was complete. We like to imagine that he's happy and free now--forever.
Minnie and Dobby, you have been our constants these past 14 years. You saw us through the early days of our marriage, our first jobs, all the hikes and bike rides, the arrival of our three kids, and all the moments in between. Always giving us unconditional love. The time we had with you wasn't long enough but it sure was great. I know you're both running endlessly after squirrels and playing with old friends. Go nuts and destroy all the pillows. We love you both, we miss you a lot, and we will see ya on the other side.
~Mommy and Daddy
Lindsay was the first dog my wife and I ever owned. We decided to go big (literally) with a Newfoundland. Lindsay was large even for his breed; a very challenging puppy who matured into a wonderful companion. He brought so much joy to us, and us to him.
There are so many traits of his that will live forever in our memories. How food-motivated he was! He was never not hungry, and for some reason one of his favorite delicacies was paper products - tissue paper, paper towels, napkins, even cash bills (he ate easily over $100 in his life). How enormous he was. When we would take him for walks, one of his favorite activities, people would stop us and ask if he was a bear. He was a patient and relaxed road trip companion. He adored tug-of-war, and was strong enough to drag most people around. Somewhere near the middle of his life, he became a great snuggler, and believe me, the feeling of having 180+ pounds of content puppy snoring in your lap is a sensation impossible to forget. He was calm and gentle around children. His vets fell in love with him. The 9 years we all spent together will be remembered with gratitude and great fondness, and we will always miss our beautiful goofball Lindsay-pup.
You were the best dog for 15 years. You loved walks, cuddles and food! You loved just lazin around and being warm by the fire!!
You were such a fun dog, we all loved you very much, and all the other dogs loved sleeping with you feeling safe! You are truly missed Sheba. I know you're having fun with Ginger and Juju now, we'll see you again!! We love you Sheebs!
Thank you so much gentle goodbyes for making such a hard decision peaceful.
My Big Cat, Fuzzy Pants, Boo Boo came to me one cold night after being abandoned and we saved each other. He was with me for almost 9 years. He was the best boy, the sweetest and most loving cat I've ever known. He loved his kisses and purred so loud in my ear. He followed me everywhere and I loved him so much. We will meet again on the Heavy Side and until then I know he is playing in the catnip on a cloud. Be seeing you, my precious boy.
"So hard to say goodbye to my sweet Lexi girl. Our petite little lady lived her life of 18 years with dignity and grace. She brought so much joy to our lives and our home. Lexi loved laying in the sun, keeping herself neatly groomed, warm summer evenings, warm blankies fresh from the dryer, and sleeping by my side at night. I am so grateful for all the love and time we shared together. I miss her so much." ???
Baby started as a public relations dog for the Ridgecrest police department. But then budget cuts forced Baby to be given up. Someone took her in after that but she ran away three times. The final time they did not come to get her. My wife found her on the city
dog shelter website. When I first saw her face I knew she was the one. I needed a service dog as recommended by my doctor, so we went and got her. She quickly adapted to us and I established a strong bond with her. That was in 2009. In 2017 she became my official service dog until her decease in 2021. Baby was the smartest, most patient and loving German Shepherd I have ever known. Even tempered she was easy to approach and great around children and other dogs. She literally loved me and brought such great comfort during some of the most difficult times in my life. Her love and constant presence will be greatly missed. I look for her, everywhere I am reminded of my beautiful and loving Baby.
Tucker was such a special soul. He took care of so many of our family members during several years of upheaval and turmoil. My daughter, Janalyn adopted him from a foster situation as a kitten when she was still in middle school. When our home experienced some difficulty and many changes, he was one of only two cats we were able to rescue from the mess. He lived with her grandmother for a while when her grandfather was going through a battle with cancer. He was such a cuddly loving comfort to them. When my daughter and I moved to Boise for our safety, Tucker was finally able to live with us again. He absolutely loved this place, no humidity. As Tucker got older he never outgrew his kittenish ways and we called him our forever kitten. Tucker also had the term of endearment "Tucker Bear" because he was so cuddly and loving, rather teddy bear like. He was the one who greeted people when they entered our home rather than hiding. He loved to go for walks in his stroller and would very clearly communicate when he wanted to take a stroller adventure. I always felt safe with him guarding our home. He was such a patient and sweet personality. You never doubted his love. Saying goodbye seemed to happen way too fast. He had always been such a healthy and vibrant kitty.
Tuesday evening our family had to say goodbye to our best furry friend Shasta (little Shast) she gave us 14 years of love, loyalty, laughs, cuddles, and friendship. We couldn't be happier we got to grow older alongside her. We will miss her so much, but know she is in a better place and is getting all the hotdogs she could ever ask for from grandpa?? fly high little one. The Stewart fam will never forget you❤️
So difficult to say goodbye to our beloved "Bo" after 12 years of love. So young at heart and spirit up to your final day of sending you home to be with your alpha daddy, and my loving husband and soul mate of 35 years of blessed marriage. You were a such a joy and blessing to us, and especially to me as my closest companion for these last two years of your life. You were such a busy and excitable one with that big tail and 102+ lb. body of yours. You still had such spunk and spark in your eyes, just not physically. It would have been selfish of us to keep you here when you no longer had the quality of life you deserved. We will miss your killer tail, and sweetest pet a family could every ask for. Rest in peace in heaven. Run wild and free with daddy our sweet fur baby until we meet again. Love forever - your alpha mom and family.
