Buster Brown, my big Golden
boy I thank God for the short time I had you on this earth. I
was hoping that we could have at least four or five more years
together, but it was not to be. I love you so much and miss you
terribly, and I look forward to the time when we will meet again
Love you forever,
Mom & Muffy

- Newman, our beloved friend
- You asked so little,
but deserved so much
- You were happy with only
a pat on your head
- and a tickle of your
- You gave those wonderful
- and waited patiently
when we were away
- You faced each instance
of this monster disease
- With dignity and courage
- Your memories live on
in every heart that you touched
- Wait for us by the rainbow
- For we will always have
you in our hearts
- And our lives - 6 years
was not long enough
- But we would not have
missed a single moment
- Play and run pain-free
until we meet you at the bridge
- Watch for us for we will
be watching for you

Bear was diagnosed with Idiopathic
Epilepsy, February 1, 2002. You had such a short time on
earth, but you made a mark on our hearts that we will carry with
us the rest of our lives.
We're so sorry we could not make
you better. We did not win the battle, even though you fought
like a little soldier until the end. The seizure "monster"
no longer has you my sweet baby boy.
Bear was helped to Rainbow Bridge
by Jim and Sheryl. Dad held you tight and Mom whispered, "Wait
for Mommy at the Bridge."
There are so many little things
I miss about you...like refusing the treat you were offered until
I picked your favorite. The funny little way you squeaked at the
end of a yawn. The way you would align yourself under Dads arm
for a back scratch. The way you would sniff ever so gently in
Dads ear when you needed to go outside in the middle of the night.
The way you would cuddle with me in bed (my own personal bed warmer).
I miss you sitting at my side as
I desperately searched for information on Canine Epilepsy. You
were there when I discovered this wonderful site and all the wonderful
people that became our "Epi-Family" and you were there
when I would chat with the other Moms on Sunday nights (Mom, are
you talking about me again?)
You were just always there!
You are missed my precious darling pup-pup!

I Only Wanted You
They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you. A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill. If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

Beautiful Kayla, we miss
you more than we ever thought imaginable, but your
spirit is still with us. Sometimes at night I think I still hear
you howl and
I always expect you to coming running around the corner to meet
over us and run free until we meet again someday at The Bridge.
forever be our "Sweetest Puppy"....

We wish we could have told
in words you'd understand,
We wanted you to stay with us.
This wasn't what we'd planned.
We wish somehow to tell
How empty we now feel.
A part of us went with you,
A part that time can't heal.
We wish we had you back
to fill this empty space.
But one day we'll be together
in a far, far better place.

- Dear Mani,
We let you go not because we did not love you,
but because we loved you too much to force you to stay.
- You fought hard to stay
alive, my friend.
In the end though, you couldn't conquer death.
But neither did death conquer you.
Death cures all diseases, mends all broken bones, breaks all
And you are free at last.
Goodbye my dear friend.
- Wait for us; we miss
- Waiting for

My baby boy....you were the best birthday present
I could have asked for. I keep trying to figure out exactly how and when
you became such a part of my heart, and I think it was probably that very
first day I held you at just four weeks old. You were tiny enough to fit
in just one hand. Once we got you home, you grew...and grew...and grew...not
only in size, but in how much a part of us you became. After your first
seizure in January 2002 we kept our hopes up that we would beat the monster,
but it was not to be. We helped you over the bridge, where you can be pain
free, seizure free...even though it meant we had to lose you for now. Run
happy and play with my angel kitties Hajjii, Blue and Dolly and know that
one day we will all be together again. We love you and miss you, baby boy!
You are in our thoughts and hearts every day.

"Through all the ups and downs
in my life you were there for me. You somehow knew when I was
having a bad day and always made it better, a look, a wag, a silly
woof. You won, the monster visits no more and you are finally
free. I miss you terribly, but until we meet again my dearest
friend, you will live on in my heart."
