KELLY02/08/2006 - 08/22/2020
My Sheltie, Kelly, was a Diva but very sweet she loved to chase and bark at anything that moved. She had 7 AKC Agility titles. She was my baby and will be missed! Our other sheltie is missing her. Some day we will all meet over the Rainbow Bridge.
PAYTON07/25/2007 - 07/12/2020
We expected to have our Payton until at least 15 but only had him for 13. We were so blessed to have him. He would bark whenever anyone he loved left the house because he didn't want them to leave. Our family lost our oldest son 7 years ago and it's Payton's love for our family that helped us keep going. He was loving and smart and loyal. We hope he knows how much we love him and always will because he sure loved us. Our son Alex in Heaven greeted Payton so he doesn't need to wait for us by the Rainbow Bridge. Payton and Al will be together in Heaven until we meet again. We learned 7 years ago that just because you can't be with a loved one in person, that love is always there and they're still a part of your lives.
PANDA? - 07/06/2020
Panda came into our life as a puppy rescued along with several other dogs that were abused. My mom was an ordinance officer for her town and saved all these dogs. She fell in love with her, named her Panda (cause she looked like a baby panda) and adopted her. Panda was very fond of my mom and was very cautious around men. Took her years to get comfortable with me. When my mom passed away 4 years ago, I had to take her in and introduce her to my aging boxer Maci and family as her new home. I'll never forget when I put her in my yard for the first time, she ran. Ran so fast she got away and we couldn't find her. A couple hours later someone found little Panda about 1/2 mile away. She was heading, what it seemed, straight north to my moms house. After some time she took my wife and never left her side. Guessing to be 13 or 14 years old, she began having multiple health issues and it was her time. We had 4 great years with Panda and miss her dearly. Not sure how it all works, but I know she will always find a way back to my mom. Thank You to Mokena Animal Clinic for your compassion and professionalism.
SOCKS? - 07/06/2020
When I rescued Socks, she was terrified of people and other rabbits and would scream if anyone came near her. I think it took her a day to figure out what a banana was and what time of day I would give her a piece. She became very friendly and quickly bonded with my rabbit Hershey who was twice her size. She was very sweet except that she would snort at Hershey and shove him out of her way when it was time for her piece of banana.
WEDNESDAY07/04/2019 - 06/04/2020
Wednesday was only with us for 2 months and passed quickly from FIP. She brought so much joy, love, and fun to our family. She loved her grey and pink mouse, and messing with her older cat companion Selina. She is missed dearly by our entire family, and will never be forgotten.
DIME02/20/2005 - 05/17/2020
Dime was a perfect example of a pit bull. Calm, laid back, loving, forgiving, and loyal. His heart was as big as his huge head. His stubbornness was just a wonderful trait I will miss so very much. Dime was my soulmate and I will forever be grateful for him being in my life! I love you Dime. We will forever miss you and forever remember you!!
CHEWY09/09/2013 - 01/11/2021
Chewy was my first dog and the best dog I could have ever asked for. He loved to go on hikes, play with his toys, go to the beach, and snuggle on the couch. He was taken so suddenly and so young, and I miss him terribly. He will always be missed and will always have the most special place in my heart.
JAKE10/2008 - 12/09/2020
Jake was the sweetest and best dog ever. Everyone he met loved him. He enjoyed opening presents on holidays and his birthdays. We had a party for him every year. Our hearts are broken and we miss him terribly. He was a big part of our family, and we will never forget him.
Blitz08/2008 - 10/2020
Blitz was the best dog we could have ever asked for. She made you feel like the most special peraon in the world. My heart is completely broken and I know she's watching over my family and I. I hope we treated you half as amazing as you treated us, B. All our love and until we meet again.
LUCKY05/09/2011 - 12/02/2020
Our Lucky couldn't even wait two weeks without needing to say hello and be with his mother. Saying goodbye to him was one of the hardest things ever. From the moment our other dog Daisy had him, he stole our hearts. 8 weeks later and he found his forever home. 9 years of amazing memories with this handsome man in his "tuxedo". He was the smartest boy who would do anything for food. He would always give us mean looks for leaving the house because he was so loyal and loved our company as much as we loved his. He had the best ears and the warmest cuddles. He will be forever missed.
DAISY03/24/2009 - 11/05/2020
Daisy brought our family so much joy from the moment we got her till the last day she was here. She was the greatest addition to our family and the best mom to the 7 puppies she gave birth to in our family hall closet. She never complained about anything she went through. She had the cutest face and gave the best cuddles. She will forever hold a special place in our hearts.
MAX01/14/2010 - 09/15/2020
Max was the sweetest and most gentle golden retriever. He comforted me when I went thru chemo and got divorced. He showed me that this man I brought home was a keeper when I met my new husband. He stole my shoes (just carried them around) stole food off the counter and barked as he begged for attention. He was my first dog. I loved him like my own kids. I am sad that I didn't know that he was so sick. I would have liked to snuggled him more and pet him more. Max was the best big brother to Molly, but did show her some naughty habits lol. I will always remember how he was so excited to see me and always came to comfort me when I needed him. There's a huge hole in my heart
SAMMIE03/2004 - 10/10/2020
Sammie was such a lover, and one of his favorite things was napping in the kitchen in the sun. He truly was my only child and I miss him deeply, but I know that he is now in a place where he is happy AND, most importantly, healthy.
LACY LOO03/2003 - 07/2020
Lacy was loved by everyone who knew her. She loved White Castle cheeseburgers and hated the outdoors. She was a big sister to Harley who is heartbroken without her. Our home will not be the same without her. She will be missed deeply.
TEDDY08/04/2012 - 05/01/2020
Teddy warmed our family with his paws and left too soon leaving an empty place in our hearts. Love him forever.
COOKIE04/15/2003 - 05/05/2020
Cookie loved to check out all the treats Grandma brought on Christmas morning!!
CASEY ROSE11/13/2009 - 05/04/2020
Our Casey was the sweetest, smartest, intelligent German Shepherd we have ever had and loved all her family especially her daddy. She was so smart and beautiful. Went everywhere with us did not need a leash, and stayed at her daddy's side. We loved her dearly and will miss her for a long time to come.
MURPHY02/14/2004 - 04/19/2020
Murphy came to us on February 14, 2010, from Mississippi. He was in rescue for 18 months and his profile said "I'm still here did you forget about me?" He stole our hearts right then and there without even knowing him. And how befitting that he came to us on Valentines Day. We got his partner in crime (Libby) 2 weeks earlier and the two never skipped a beat. It was as though they had been together their whole lives. He was so sweet and gentle and all he ever wanted was love. He was so smart and so loyal. He loved his sister unconditionally and the day we had to say goodbye to her, he did not leave her side. We can only hope that we filled his heart with as much love as he filled ours. Before we said goodbye to him I told him that the good news is that Libby, Pee-Wee and Junior will all be waiting for him. The bad news is that Libby will probably still be the boss of all of them! I don't think he cared, I know that he would be so happy to see her. Farewell baby angel, you left us heartbroken but we know you're having so much fun now. Our good, good boy, we will miss you with all our hearts.
ZOEY09/24/2005 - 04/08/2020
Truly the greatest gift to our family. She was a protector, a hugger and she was loved by all that met her. She will forever love in our hearts.
The Sweetest Little Boy that gave us so much joy.
LEXIS1999 - 04/14/2020
We got Lexis as a rescue in Dec 1999. We remember because the whole Y2K thing was going on. At that time she was around 4-6 months old. Sadly, we had to put her down on 4/14/20. She let us know it was time. She was with us for 21 years. I will miss our morning routines. Miss it when we come home & she's not there to greet us at the door. Spoiling her w/McDonalds, hot dogs, whipped cream. I reminisced last night about how much fun she was when she was young, just RIPPING around the condo while I chased her & how she loved it when I roughed her up. Now as I look around our house I miss not seeing her in all her little sun spots she used to lay in. She was truly the PURRFECT cat for us!!! We were blessed to be able to spend all day with her as we worked from home this past month. Our new little co-worker was always cheerful and supportive. Words cannot describe how heartbroken we are. She will be dearly missed :(
SCOUT10/31/2012 - 4/18/2020
Scout was a wonderful part of our family! She loved taking walks and sniffing out animals in the backyard! She always greeted us at the door when we came home! She will always be in our hearts!
MAGOO01/2003 - 3/30/2020
Magoo helped brighten my day by his silly antics. He was there waiting as I came home from work, alway happy to see me. He was by my side for 17 plus years offering silent comfort.
PUNCH02/13/2012 - 03/12/2020
Blink and it is over. MACH Top Flight's Cocktail Party aka Punch Punchybooboo, Bubbabunchee, Punchabunchamunchkins, BooBoos, Punchy, Poonchkee 02/13/2012 to 03/11/2020. Tired from being such a brave and powerful girl. She fought like a warrior. Sleep my beauty. No matter what we did we couldn't stop it. From day one Punch was her own girl. She was unflappable and determined. Sassy, fiery, smart...so so smart. Punch was an easy puppy and really not hard as an adult. Determined is another word for stubborn! She knew what she liked and who she liked. She smiled and sometimes smiled so hard she sneezed. Some folks who were unaware would swear she snarled but she smiled. She was very vocal! She had many opinions! Her tail spun in a circle when she was happy. We will miss that smile terribly. She could carry multiple items and bring them to you. This comes in handy! She loved her pool. She loved agility. And she loved her life. She was of the eat first ask questions later variety. She loved my Mom from the minute she laid eyes on her at 10 weeks old. She loved Murphy. In fact she was the last puppy to benefit from Murphy or Marley. We are truly blessed to have had her in our family. We feel we have been robbed as she was so perfectly her and at an age where she and we could enjoy it. She was very accomplished in the sports she loved. She got her MACH and qualified for Nationals at least twice during her treatments. She LOVED agility she loved to play. She was far better than I deserved and was trained way beyond me. No excuses no apologies just her. She liked to work, liked to play. Loved her family. Made a difference. Can't ask for more than that. A life cut short but a life well lived. Top flights Cocktail Party may you Rest in Peace my little love.
FELICIA2004 - 3/20/2020
The day we got Felicia from a friends house, she was resolutely hiding under a dresser. We didn't see her in person until we got home. It seems that she was always a part of her family, and it's still impossible to believe shes's gone. She was always our pretty girl, and soon after we brought her home she became the friendly, outgoing cat she was always meant to be. She was a great cuddles, with fur soft enough to bury your face in. She alerted the entire house when it was mealtime, and would rock the kitchen chairs if her meals were the slightest bit late. Her favorite Summer pastime was sunbathing in front of the glass door. She was great at catching any and all mice that somehow managed to get in from the crawl space. The one and only day she stepped foot outside of the house, it stormed; she never even considering going out again. She fought as hard as she could at the end, but she was ready to go. We will always miss you pretty girl.
REX07/14/2006 - 03/16/2020
Rex was a loyal dog that we all loved dearly. The kids lost a lifetime best friend. We will forever be grateful for the opportunity we had to have him as a part of our family. He had endless energy and love!
LOUIE10/2013 - 2/19/2020
For the short time we had Louie he was the best cat we ever owned. He was so sweet and loved to cuddle. He will be missed.
ZOEY09/11/2010 - 02/07/2020
Zoey was the most beautiful rescue dog, and made our family complete. She loved naps in the sun, snacking on canned pumpkin, mashed potatoes, Home Run Inn pizza, cheese, and ALL treats. She loved her spots on the couch, and especially loved snuggling with her family. We will see you again, our sweet gentle giant. We miss your lovely presence, and velvety ears. Enjoy your eternal sunshine Pup-ah!! xoxoxo
TIA06/07/2009 - 1/28/2020
Tia would help my older dog Jay get around when Jay became blind. She would never leave his side.
BAILEY? - 2/04/2020
We adopted Bailey two years ago. She was an oldie but a goodie. She had quite the personality and brought us so much joy in the short time we had with her. We were blessed to have her as our fur baby, she is loved and missed, thanks for being my sweet Bailey Boo!
BRODY03/25/2006 - 1/22/2020
Brody was a frisbee and ball catching fool. He loved being outside and laying in the sun. He was my protector and my buddy. He was our first true responsibility and has left some big paw prints on my heart. I will miss him always. You were a good boy Brody.
CUBINTHOL JAYE "CUBBY" KHAT08/08/2007 - 01/17/2020
Cubby was, without a doubt, the best cat ever. He was very protective of my elderly mother. He saved her life on several occasions. The first was when she collapsed due to a hypoglycemic event. Cub saw Ma needed help, he heard me in the bathroom taking a shower. Through great personal sacrifice, Cub literally threw himself against the bathroom door to get my attention. When I came out, he meowed, howled, and hissed to get me to follow him to find my Mom and he ran as fast as he could to be at her side. He stayed by her side as I helped her through her event. Anytime anyone entered my house, they had to be evaluated by Cub before they were allowed to enter. A plumber once told me that Cub reminded him more of a dog than a cat due to the way he would protect the family. Everyone who ever met Cub immediately fell in love with him, even people who don't like cats, loved Cubby!! He also took a very young kitten, now known as the Kikken, under his "wing" to teach her how to properly cat. Cub was the most loving, intelligent, cuddly cat any human could ever hope to share their life with.
BUN BUN10/01/2016 - 11/25/19
The most beautiful, mischievious Bunny.
MICHALEEN1/15/2009 - 8/5/2019
We lost our best friend on Monday. Mich was the happiest and loved sweet boy. He was an active large labradoodle that knew no stranger. He could have built a new wing at Mokena Animal Clinic as he was "always" getting into trouble, our sweet boy is running pain free with the big dogs, will never be able to thank everyone for loving Mich through the end.
SUMMER SKYE BLU02/14/2005 - 12/10/2019
Skye was a very special dog. Queen of her castle. Skye was married to Jack our other papillon like a couple married forever, she passed just one month after him. She had 16 puppies. She loved her food and demanded it on time. She was loved and will be missed. I pray she's happy on the rainbow bridge till we meet again.
ANDERSON10/22/2005 - 1/31/2020
Anderson (14) you brought us so much joy. As we watched you as just a young pup yourself, watch your "mate" deliver 12 of your puppies gave us so much pride. You were protective and watched over each of your babies. You live on in each of them. Anderson enjoyed camping and was always first in line at the truck door when it was time to go away for the weekend. You had your own bag chair and dare anyone else sit in it when it was campfire time. You slept where you wanted and we accepted it. We miss you tremendously Andy. Frolic with Karly where all of us will someday meet again.
BAILEY ERNST11/3/2005 - 12/29/19
Bailey was a great friend who was always there for us. We miss her a great deal. She was the most loving dog I have ever seen,
DORIE03/17/2004 - 01/15/2020
Dorie loved everyone. She loved chasing balls, chewing sticks, all toys and treats! She was the light of our lives and gave us her all. Thank you Dorie for your loyalty and unconditional love. Our hearts hurt & you are truly missed. Run fast and free, until we meet again sweet girl. Love, Mama & She XXXO
ZOEY12/1/2008 - 12/4/2019
Zoey was the most lovable and goofy dog! She was truest loved and is greatly missed!!
ROCKY02/02/2009 - 12/30/2019
Rocky was just about the sweetest boy ever. Such a loving dog. He will be missed very much.
CALI10/25/2003 - 11/11/2019
Our sweet baby girl Cali brought us years of love and affection. She was such a loving cat who waited for us by the door when we came home. She sat at the table with us while we ate and waited patiently for a taste. She was always on our laps if she could be and loved spending last winter in San Diego with us. She was such an awesome car rider. When we adopted her, we never expected her to act more like a dog than a cat. Words cannot describe how broken our hearts are that we had to say good bye to her. We are sure she is reunited with her brother, Gizmo and snuggling him again. We cannot thank Dr. Fazio and her staff enough for the way they treated Cali when she was in their office.
JACK7/30/2006 - 7/23/2019
Jack was our best friend and loyal companion who brought such joy and love to Mom and Dad. We would like to thank Dr. Fazio and her staff for treating our boy so well. Jack had a great life and home.
BUBBLES2/28/2009 - 9/23/2019
Bubbles was the sweetest dog in the world, and everyone who met her loved her. Living without her is devastating. Mornings are especially difficult-getting up and not seeing her waggy tail is painful, to say the least. We believed that we would have at least another 5 years with her, but we were mistaken. Her illness went on for four months before it eventually took any quality of life that she had. We are eternally grateful to her doctors, technicians, and caregivers for doing everything they could to make her well. It just wasn't in the cards. The only comfort we get is knowing that she is running and playing without pain in Heaven. God is taking good care of her, and my mother has finally gotten to meet her. It helps to know that. I can honestly say that I have never loved a dog so much in my entire life. I really don't know what I'm going to do. God please bless and love our "Teeny Tiny," and let her know that we'll be with her again someday.
SAMMY9/11/2007 - 9/4/2019
Sammy was the kindest dog an owner could ever want. He was friendly and loved everyone. Sammy loved to go for car rides especially up to Lake Geneva or even just to run errands. I miss the evening snuggles and the race to the door when he knew I was home from work. He touched so many lives while he was on this earth. I was the luckiest dog mom to have Sammy in my life.
PRINCESS2011 - 9/24/19
There are so many great memories of Princess, but I guess I will start at the very beginning. She was a rescue. I adopted her when she was around 2. Never having had a dog before, I took a veteran dog owner friend shopping for what I should buy. Among many items purchased, I selected what seemed to be the Cadillac of dog beds. Her first night with me, I showed her the bed set up in my bedroom. She briefly tried it out. After that, she tried out my bed, where she decided she'd sleep every night. She was truly a character, but also a loving and loyal companion. She is missed...
DOLCESummer '05 - 8/19/2019
Dolce was in my life for 14 years - before my husband, our dog, daughter and latest kitten. Dolce adopted them all. He lived on both coasts, knew how to open doors, was an exceptional mouser, watched man movies with Dad, road tripped across the US, loved treats and took a piece of my heart to rainbow bridge. Mommy will forever miss her big boy.
KIRBY7/4/2003 - 7/30/2019
My sweet Kirby was the Best!!! I adopted him from a shelter on September 11, 2003. I needed a good memory for that day. I was going thru some serious health issues during my life and Kirby was my healer. My heart is broken, but forever filled wih Love that Kirby gave to me.
SCRAPPY? - 7/31/2019
We adopted Scrappy in 2008, he was approximately 1 to 1 1/2 years at the time of joining our family. I fell in love with him the moment I looked into his eyes. Scrappy was the kindest, sweetest soul I have ever encountered. We shared, which feels like not long enough now, but years of love and laughter with his beautiful fur face. He is so deeply missed by many. Scrappy, we love you and thank you for being such a beautiful part of our lives.
CORA7/4/2014 - 4/26/2019
My fierce protector of her home, her boys and all she loved. I lost you so tragically because of it. I miss your happy little face and silly antics. You were taken away too soon. There will never be another you and I love you.
CHUEY3/14/2008 - 8/2/2019
Be softer with your breath, my love see the light? It'll lead you away...to the places you've always dreamt of where the waves slowly sway. A place so beautiful and painless, a place where you can freely play, a place where you can reunite with your brother who's been waiting, patiently, for you each day. As I hold you against my face and bones I feel you heart...It's beating slow...I feel the darkness slipping into me my mind sayd, "please don't go." You look at me with your tired eyes and I whisper, "It's ok...you can go, my love, don't worry... I'll see you later, ok?" You gaze at me with the moon in your eyes so cloudy...you follow my voice. "Follow the specks of sunlight, baby, heaven is waiting for you with joy. Close your eyes, my love...", I whimper as my heart drowns, my eyes begin to swell. I kiss my bestest boy and try to remember his smell. "It's time," the doctor says...as the tears stream down my face...our journey together has come to an end and all I feel is pain. At least it's within me now and not for you to carry. I love you so much, my Chuey, life will feel so fragmentary. You look at me one last time, unfettered and prepared. Kay and I held you as the doctor began her share. "It'll be quick and painless." she said, "I'm sorry." She was in pain too. And so she began the final treatment... and what she said was true. A couple of seconds have passed by and my heart begins to cue quickly searching for your heartbeat but it's not coming through. "He's gone now," she says... I can't seem to find any air. My head is heavy with pressure I'm drowning, it's hard to bear. It feels as if I'm the thrusters on a rocket that helps prepare the launch of such precious cargo left back to combust in despair. It feels terrible when loved ones leave you but they're life lessons that help you grow. The only option is to be brave in your world of the unknown. My baby was such a light he guided me through dark times he made me laugh unbearably with the help of his gentle eyes. He taught me lessons in life especially of how to slow down to enjoy the present (of him) and everything around. I'll miss your sweet sweet kisses, your raspy howls inflight, your begging of mom's table food, and your cuddles with dad at night. Till we see each other again, my love, though we now live lifetimes apart. Thank you for being my best baby, you'll always live in my heart.
LIBBY6/8/2005 - 5/16/2019
We rescued our Libby when she was 4 years old and weighed a whole 5 lbs. That little girl had our hearts from the first day we got her. She made us laugh all the time, so much so, I thought I should have named her Lucy for Lucille Ball. When we first got her we had to partition a part of the basement off for her when we went to work. We used a wood board and a box and held it in place with our treadmill. Well she kept getting out and we couldn't understande how she was doing this. So my husband put her in her area in the basement, blocked it off and went and hid so he could see how she was getting out of there. Sure enough, not even 5 mins later he saw two little paws at the top of the board then she pulled up her body, jumped to the box, then to the treadmill and up the stairs. OMG, we laughed so hard. She was very playful and liked to go into my closet and jump in and out of my laundry basket. So we'd call her and she'd come out with my bra on or my camisole and believe it or not even my underwear on (not all at the same time but they were put on as if she was a person), and she'd look up at us like "What's the matter, what are you laughing at?" She was so tiny but she was a force to be reckoned with. Needless to say, she will be missed dearly by us and by her partner in crime, Murphy... Love you baby girl with all our hearts.
WHISTLER11/24/2010 - 6/19/2019
"How lucky I am to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard" - Winnie the Pooh
No more meeting at the screen door...no more chin on our laps...no more walks or playing with Andy Bear. Whistler, you are the sweetest dog there is. We miss you greatly and are so glad that you chose us to have you. Enjoy running with your friends and eat all the ice cream you want. Love, Mom & Dad
ROCKY12/10/08 - 12/30/18
There was a trio of boxers. Now they're gone. Ethyl, Arizona, and Rocky. Rocky always just wanted to be loved and part of the group. He loved his walks, the dog park and bones. Cancer killed him but he fought to the end. A brave, beautiful dog. So long pal.
MR. BONES10/19/2006 - 12/18/2018
Mr. Bones was the greatest dog, he never barked. He was so so sweet, loved to go for walks, and always enjoyed his 2 tsp of oatmeal with me each day. He always knew when I was cooking it, as he would gently paw my leg to say I am here to have some. He loved all veggies, string beans were his very favorite snack along with carrots and lettuce. When we came home from the grocery store, Mr. Bones always checked to see if we brought home his stringy beans as I called them.
When he was being groomed, he always fell asleep as he enjoyed Carli so much, our groomer. I will never find another sweetest dog like Mr. Bones as he is missed so much by our whole family. It broke my heart when we lost him, as one day he was so healthy and then the next morning he declined so fast. RIP Mr. Bones. You are missed so very much, you brought so so much joy.
JACK3/14/2004 - 11/5/2019
Right from the beginning we new Jack was a special dog as he changed out lives. We quickly realized he had talent and we began taking him to dog training. He was a natural at agility and was soon winning titles. When he won his very first event at a national championship, I was so proud of him. Over the years Jack went on to earn many more titles including Agility Team Extraordinaire. He was more than a pet, he was my teammate and we enjoyed traveling and spending time together competing. When he wasn't competing, he was a loving dog to his family, friends and all his dog friends. He fathered several litters, giving us two other dogs and now joins his son JJ at the rainbow bridge where they can now enjoy running and jumping together again. Jack will be missed by his family as he touched our hearts in a way only he could. We thank God for giving us such a special dog and all the memories we have of Jack.
TIFFY10/04/2004 - 2/16/2019
He was simply the sweetest cat.
TAFFY4/8/2002 - 8/6/2019
Taffy was a little, energetic bundle of joy! She was a terrific watch dog for her tiny size! She will be greatly missed!
IZZY BELLA9/20/2005 - 1/15/2019
Izzy's biggest joy was eating. She would run around in circles when I put her food out. It's the "yorkie" dance. Because of her kidney issues, her diet was restricted to prescription food, but she loved it. If I left her for several hours, when I got home she would literally squeal with joy to see me. It was amazing, to be so loved.

I am reaching out to family and friends to reluctantly share our horrible pain with those that have touched our lives and that of our little angel, Scooter.
Despite his cervical disc disease diagnosis more than three years ago, a medicinal answer was found that gave us a happy puppy (he will always be a puppy to us!) in a home filled with love and safety to spend these last years.
As Scooter entered his sixteenth year of life this past April, we took notice of changes that were not good, His condition worsened in these past few weeks and we were no longer able to remedy them through veterinarian care. In order to prevent his condition from progressing to a point of debilitating pain, Katy and I made that horribly painful decision to lead our baby to the Rainbow Bridge. On Saturday, Scooter went to Heaven.
I have done my job in protecting him as I promised I would that day in April 2008 back in Autsin, Texas when he was rescued from the shelter.
I am angry at God in that I thought we were going to have our Scooter with us until his natural death. I am angry that God made katy and I make that decision as to when his death should be. At the same time, I am grateful to God that we were blessed with these past eleven years with Scooter and the past three that did not even look like an option when he was suffering so horribly in 2016.
Scooter's passing has been one of the most painful moments of our life and yet we regret nothing. He was never a dog to us and we loved him as one of our own children. Despite knowing that the day would come where he would leave this earth before us, we loved him completely and without reservation...which is the only way to love.
With love and gratitude,
Mark and Katy Bateman
SPEEDY11/18/2007 - 11/13/2018
Speedy loved his green tennis ball. He would be busy ripping off the green felt covering just leaving a bit left in order to grab and fling in the air in order to chase it. This was a ritual every morning while I was making him breakfast and dinner. He would also put the ball in his mouth squeezing it so you can hear that squeaking noise from the ball. I am truly missing this ritual as well as cuddling with him while watching tv, he loved doing this.
SKITTLES9/2008 - 6/11/2019
Skittles was my little princess. She was a very smart, loving and loyal cat. I can never replace her, and my heart is broken. Rest in sweet peace my sweet angel.
GIZMO8/2002 - 12/1/2018
In the Summer I would be outside doing some garden work and Gizmo would also be outside with me. Every once in a while Gizmo would check to see if I was looking and take a walk across the street to the neighbors house to get his favorite treats. Everyday when I come from work Gizmo would greet me at the front door. He never missed a beat. Also, enjoyed cuddle time with me in my recliner. I truly miss his little face at the door.
TEDDY5/20/2005 - 5/23/2019
Teddy was my best friend. He helped me through my mother's death, my sister's death and my divorce. He will be greatly missed.
MARTY7/11/2009 - 12/7/2018
Marty was the most playful, loving, and compassionate member of our family. He had an uncanny understanding of human emotion and penchant for fetch like no other. He was a patient and affectionate companion to his younger brother, Wally, and his sisters, Epiphany and Nala. Marty had a calming presence in our household and seemed to make it his goal to ensure that everyone felt as loved and appreciated as he did every day. He is missed and will continue to be missed by our hearts with every passing moment. In your honor, Marty, we will strive to be the good that you always saw in us, so save us some seats up there.
MIRACLE4/13/2003 - 3/14/2019
Miracle was an amazing cat who will be missed immensely by his mom and dad and 3 human siblings, as well as his 5 fur siblings. There was never a dull moment with Mir, he enjoyed being the boss of the house and the center of attention. He was strong and courageous till the very end. We love you Mir, rest easy buddy.
SMOKEY11/2002 - 11/16/2018
In 2002, while my husband Brian was working in our garage, a tiny kitten appeared out of no where. It stood in front of him crying and meowing and wouldn't leave. So my husband, a fireman, did what firemen are known to do, rescue kittens. He named him Smokey because he was smokey gray with a white chest. He was Brian's best buddy, until Brian suddenly passed away in 2010. Smokey has been my loving companion since and has given me much joy. Now there is another void in my life.
CINDY12/25/02 - 11/23/18
Cindy left us unexpectedly last Friday, she was a shelter dog from MO that lived in a cage for the first 6 years of her life. We adopted her and loved her dearly. Our hearts are broken and will miss her dearly.
5/19/2006 - 6/13/2012
Our dog Mack was like our 6-year old son, he brought us such joy. He was there for us in good times and bad. He never talked back, he always was the first one at the door to great you tail wagging and looking for some
5/5/2005 - 6/23/2014
From the moment she chewed on Dan's shoelace at the pet store, we knew Dusty was meant to be part of our family. For 9 years, she brought us so much love in her unique way. As a Pug, she was snorty, wiggly, and snored when she slept, but she was loved by all. She was the sweetest, friendliest, most loyal dog we've ever known. And she was our family dog and leaves a huge Dusty-sized hole in our lives. Sweet Dreams Dusty, see you on The Rainbow Bridge with a whole chicken.
