We love and care for them daily. We celebrate their birthdays and their “gotcha” days. They bring us happiness and laughter. Losing a pet can be just as difficult as losing a close family member or friend. We are honored to share a place to memorialize loved family pets that have passed away.
In her prime she was in the top 10 female field trial dogs in the nation. A devastating diagnosis of myasthenia gravis ended her career and almost ended her life.
In the end, her previous owner surrendered her to us, where she eventually went into remission and went on to live the last 5 years of her 10 year life with us.
For a dog that knew nothing but kennel life, she adapted to life in a home with dog beds and toddlers seamlessly. Like a true Labrador she ate anything and everything she could. She ate $40 worth of Girl Scout cookies and never got sick. She ate an entire 100 count box of crayons, bird seed and just about any type of food that was available. She would play frisbee until we forced her to stop.
When you would talk to her, she would squint her eyes and fall down for belly rubs. If we scolded her, and told her that was not angel-type behavior, she would squint, wag her tail and fall down in apology. She never met a human she didn’t like, an item she wouldn’t retrieve or a food she didn’t’ like.
She was our heart dog. Our best dog. Our angel.
