SEPTEMBER 2022 Memorials
Forever in our hearts!
Kona, my sweet boy. When you came to us at just a little over a year old with a seizure disorder and having been adopted and returned to the Humane Society once already, I wasn’t sure what our future held. One thing I did know, fate brought me to you and you became such an important member of the family. Life wasn’t easy on you and it definitely wasn’t fair but that didn’t stop you from spreading so much love and joy. I will cherish every minute that I got to spend with you and I will forever miss our naps and snuggling on the couch together. No more pain and no more suffering, only love and peace for my sweet baby Kona ♥️
Joey was the ambassador for Animal Friends Alliance and the love of our lives. He loved us and talked to us every day and loved both, David and me, in his own way. He was the best and we miss him terribly. He was the love of our lives. 😻
My sadness is profound.
Even I cannot understand it.
By chance, or fate,
You became family.
That little mauve colored nose
Outlined in brown black that I loved so much.
That one peach paw.
That soft white chin.
So many adventures,
So many memories.
The vicious Mama bird chasing you,
Full speed, around the yard.
You had knocked down her nest.
The daily hunts at the
Home on the river.
You had a wild side to match
That wild cat look.
How you’d come running to lick the bowl.
Somehow knowing we had ice cream.
That drove me to frustration at times.
The eighteen years of unconditional love.
I wanted you to live forever.
I cannot bear that you are gone.
I see you everywhere.
I want to touch your tortie fur.
I pray you are at peace.
I hope Saavy and Jasper
Were there to greet you.
I will see you to the end of my days
On the hilltop where we buried you
Under an angry Wyoming sky.
You were the best protector. Your family and chickens miss you. Thank you for everything Mercy! We miss you!
Daisy Duke, you were wonderful in every way. I’m so glad you were in our lives, and wish we would have had longer with you. We will never ever forget you.
Furever in our hearts…
Jack was a mixed breed of dubious origins. At 20 pounds max weight and in his prime he managed snakes and the occasional armadillo that showed up in my mother’s Florida yard. For 18 years he enjoyed the couch, the bed and a collection of pets that he was sometime friends with. The last week of his life was spent at South Bay campground around Horsetooth Reservoir and was able to sniff out the ever present goose poop. Thank you my friend for getting me through the pandemic.
Thanks for choosing us as your family, Ella! We had a great 15 1/2 years with you.❤️ I hope that kitty heaven is stocked with plenty of bacon and smoked Gruyère cheese – your favorite treats. We love you and we miss you. You were the Best! Your Loving Family
Our Bullet was the best of the best of the best. If his treat was brand new, he had to share it with us first. He would sass both of us when he had his own opinion. He brought us so much joy when we saw his face waiting in the window when we came home. We lost him the way too soon, but he will be forever in our hearts.
Thank you sweet Maya girl for 15 years of love and loyalty. ❤️
Hims was the best boi that loved everyone.
We love you Max Kitty. You’ll stay in our hearts forever.
As each day passes, we miss you more than ever, but we know you are home and in good care! You and Zeus have fun, buddy, have fun!
Our sweet Sadie girl. We are so lucky to have shared the ride with you for a while. You left a mark on our hearts, and we’ll never forget you, buddy.
Freddie was always so shy. I helped him find confidence when the girls didn’t want to play with him. He was very sweet and cheerful. He had a long life filled with playing with his ball hanging out in the hammock in the back yard. I’m still getting used to my life without him. I am so grateful that I had the pleasure of knowing him and the joy of giving him a safe and playful home. He was a good boy!

Cheyenne Marie Jones May 18, 2009 – June 9, 2020
“Every once in a while a dog enters your life AND CHANGES EVERYTHING.” This was true with my Cheyenne love! I am grateful that I had the pleasure of taking care of her for 11 years! She was my constant companion and she touched my heart like no other…
Her unconditional love, compassion, playfulness, sense of adventure, and JOY were wonderful! She liked other dogs, but she loved people. I met so many great people along the way all because of Cheyenne greeting them in her own way. It wasn’t a bark, it was more of an ar, ra, ra, ra, ra… sometimes with a little twirl on the end. It really sounded like she was talking! (We never got to hear that sweet greeting after her surgery on April 9th. We didn’t even know she was ill until that day with her GI lymphoma dx.) She still had a cute faint bark though and still wagged that tail!
She always brought a smile to everyone’s face. She had the best personality!!! She was such a good girl and we both loved her deeply. Our hearts hurt beyond words and we are still in shock that she is gone. We were looking ahead to all of the new adventures with her in the travel trailer! We kept telling her how much we loved her and living life with her. It was hard to say goodbye and let go… She was my love.
Boomer the Dog… a member of our family for more than 12 years. Always his own dog, but a really good dog. We love and miss him.
Our sweet little Miss Macy Gray went to Doggie Heaven. She was truly a fighter as she pushed on for 9 more months than was expected and for a little dog, that was amazing and we are forever grateful for the extra time.
She was purposely spoiled and went everywhere with us within the U. S., traveled more than most people, and gave us more ❤ love as well. We love her and miss her and are a little bit lost without her💕
We truly enjoyed our time with her here on earth❣
We all miss Lygon but cherish the time we had together. She was adventurous, sweet, and a little naughty too. Have fun on the moon, Lygs!

My dear, sweet Acer boy,
I feel like I lost a part of me that day. I was talking to my friend after you had passed and mentioned that it had been sunny and beautiful until you were gone and all of a sudden it was cold and grey for days. I told her that you had taken the sun with you that day. She told me that you didn’t take the sun; that you were the sun.
Twelve years ago, driving home in the pouring down rain on a very busy four-lane road, I just happened to see a tiny orange spot in the middle. I swerved into the first parking lot, and dodged traffic, just hoping I could get to this tiny thing in the road before something tragic happened. I scooped up this angry, wet 4wk old kitten and ran back to my car. Right in front of Ace Hardware, hence your name. And so your journey began.
You never played favorites with the family, you loved us all fiercely. You became best friends with a ferret. You were so loving, funny, patient, and smart. There wasn’t a person who came through the door whose lap didn’t become your favorite within a few seconds of them sitting down.
When I got sick, you were by my side through so many days in bed. Brain surgeries, radiation, many other surgeries, treatments, one after the other, and you were always in the bed with me or right on top of me. My warmth. My protector. My comfort. My best friend.
After being able to function again and knowing what I learned about taking care of you, I started to foster kittens. Hundreds of kittens have been raised with warmth, compassion, and love that I learned from you.
Twelve years, five houses, two states, and thousands of miles traveled. Dakota, Montana, Diesel, and Stormie are waiting for you even though Isis and Ozzie call for you daily.
We put your ashes on the counter in the kitchen so we can shout “Ace, get off the counter!” every once in a while. I miss you so much, my little buddy. We all do. I just hope we were worthy of the beautiful soul that you were.
My sweet Nubbin! I’m not sure how to do this life without you. When I tattooed you on my thigh I said it was so we would always walk together not fully prepared for the day that would be the only way we went walking together. Thank you for being my source of love, laughter, frustration, and stinky farts. Thank you for making me your whole world and being mine. I miss you every day but smile through the tears because I know how lucky I was that we got to love each other.
Love forever and always,
Our sweet Doogie was with us for 15 years! He was the kindest and sweetest of souls. He will be so greatly missed. We hope you’re running around with your brother. We love you with all our hearts sweet boy!
Charlie was such a beautiful boy. We loved him every day for 18 years. He was a monster as a kitten and only loved my husband. In his prime he enjoyed watching birds and peeing on laundry lol…. as he aged he became a lover. He was with me all day every day. He enjoyed gardening and eating most! We miss him terribly but are so glad he’s not hurting anymore. We love you beautiful boy. Xoxo mom and dad.
Never forget that in between Hello and Goodbye, there was love – So much love ❤️ 🐾
For 20 years you were our sweet little baby. Whenever we see a sunbeam we will think of you. We miss you Star.
RJ, he went by many different names. He couldn’t hear any of them, but that’s okay. He was the BEST big, the silliest and absolute most dapper boy. He hated camping so much, but loved hikes and his people. Not really a dog-dog, but in his old age, he tolerated other creatures just fine. He sounded just like Scooby-Doo when impersonated and loved Scooby snacks just the same. He loved ‘love’ more than anything and would howl “I love you” in his hound dog voice, even though he wasn’t a hound dog. He is missed by so many, Linda and Dale Johnson, the group over at Avalis, us of course and everyone who’s ever met him. He died at the old age of 17, with cookies in his mouth.
Bruiser was the sweetest dog I’ve had in my life. He was just so full of love. He would go into work with me and made the residents and staff smile. He would sit out front on the sidewalk just so he could get extra pets and help the neighborhood have a better day, he even liked the delivery and mail people. Bruiser also turned some cat lovers into dog lovers too. He loved going for walks and riding in the car. He loved being around anyone, especially me. He was my friend, confidant, my support dog, and a great teacher. He was a two-time rescue that came from New Orleans after Katrina, and he absolutely loved the snow. I miss him terribly and hope to see him at the rainbow bridge. Have a blast up there my sweet friend.
You always kept us on our toes with your stubborn personality and food-driven spirit. You were a part of our lives for 19 beautiful years, and now there’s a huge hole in our family. I find myself looking for you, at your favorite places like the bathroom rug or under the Christmas tree. I miss your oversized bark and the patter of your feet.
I’m so thankfully for the years we had together, but those years flew by too fast.
Thank you for all the years of wonderful memories and unconditional love.
Rest easy sweet boy.
We will always love and miss you 💙.
I loved you your whole life. I’ll miss you for the rest of mine. – unknown

Love you, Opie San.
Johnny was the heart of our home and is missed. He was always designated to be in charge when Rex and I left the house.
One day at a festival in downtown Bluffton.
He sucked me in with his deep brown eyes, powerful yet gentle soul and asked me to take him home. He knew I could help him & he could help me.
I never felt such a strong connection with an animal before. I had no choice but to bring him home he was meant to be with me.
He was disabled when I got him from a broken pelvis, but he got along fine. Two other fosters returned him bc “he was too much.”
I did a ton of Myofascial release therapy on him and acupuncture and got him
Moving better than ever.
Quite the opposite he was a HUGE SPACE holder and lover for my home, work, and ceremony.
I always joked that he was the best listener in the house, I have no idea who trained him, but he inserted himself in our life so easily. He was always just love…not one growl ever out of him…he totally made me fall in love with Pitties…
He became a healer dog….he would hold
Space in my treatment room for years, by my side. I called him my Shaman Dog.
Some sessions he would position himself around the room and help me move energy.
Then a blind black sister cat came along….and well….he sat back and let her take over graciously.
He loved laying in the grass, soaking up the sun, and trying on various hats. He loved playing dress up for Matteo! He loved opening presents too!
His jobs were done…he healed me through some of my toughest moments with nothing but LOVE… now he can chase as many rabbits & deer with all his legs.

Thank you Dr. Lisa, for allowing us to say our goodbyes with french fries, laps and yard time. You will always be connected to our hearts.
Handstand-pee-er; circus dog; mini sheriff; monogamously in love with his green stuffy; cuddly; defended the fort against all unknown dogs; barked like he’d been smoking for 30 years; appreciative of sunshine, warm laundry & fire in the fireplace on a cold night; demanding; bossy; my larger than life little companion for 13 years, rest well furry friend.
Rex was our absolute best friend, our first baby, and our whole world. We rescued him on March 15, 2016, a day after moving to the state of CO. We spent the next six years together creating the best memories, he was a mountain dog through and through. We camped and hiked together nearly every weekend, his favorite mountain spot is in the beautiful Rawah’s.
Rex was always happy as long as he was with us, his joy was contagious, and got us through some of the hardest times of our lives. We bought a property in the mountains and named it the “Rex Ranch” where he lived out the last two years of his life roaming around our land.
Rex passed away on the morning of August 12, 2022. We miss our baby boy terribly already, life is very quiet now. Six years doesn’t feel long enough, but no amount of time would ever feel long enough with Rex. He was such a light, the most beautiful dog with the biggest, kindest heart. Fly free our sweet luck dragon, until we meet again.
Rocky our sweet angel. Love you forever!
Buddy was such a huge part of our family. He was everybody’s friend and got along with all. There is an empty spot in our hearts now, and we will always carry our love for him. our best friend!!
His body finally failed,
but his heart never did.
His love will light
Heaven as he
plays in God’s
Thank you Sofi. I would’ve been lost without you.
Thank you for being my strength when I had none.
Thank you for bringing light, joy and laughter into the darkest of days.
Thank you for being my rock in sickness and my best adventure buddy in health.
Thank you for being everything to me.
In this life or the next I’ll find you again. I love you more than life itself, my sweet Sofi girl. Just keep swimming. I’ll love you forever and a day.
I was just a pup when we first met,
I loved you from the start,
You picked me up and took me home
and placed me in your heart.
Good times we had together,
we shared all life could throw,
but years passed all too quickly,
my time has come to go.
I know how much you miss me,
I know your heart is sore,
I see the tears that fall when
I’m not Waiting at the Door.
You always did your best for me
your love was plain to see,
for even though it broke your heart
You set my spirit free.
So please be brave without me,
one day we’ll meet once more,
for when you’re called to Heaven
I’ll be Waiting at the Door.
I’m pretty sure this is what our sweet girl was thinking when we had to say farewell. We know you’ll wait for us on the other side. We miss you, Muttley . . . Mom, Dad and your boy Brandon
Maggie was my best friend. Always loyal. Always obedient. I will miss her forever. I lost more than a dog. But I look back and realize how blessed I was to have been able to spend her life with her. Love you always Jeep Dawg. Thanks for the memories!!
Baby girl, you will forever be in our hearts, thoughts, and lives. We are so much better for having known you, and your paw prints are forever imprinted upon our hearts and souls. We love you and miss you like crazy. We know that you will always be with us. You have us so much love, loyalty, and happiness, and you were our best best friend. Run free, Vix. Until we meet again, our sweet girl.
At home, he was the most relaxed and companionable fellow. He loved his walks (we protected him from other canines), napping with us, rolling on his back in the yard whether it was grass- or snow-filled. He didn’t quite understand playing. He did understand chasing cats (rabbits were boring) and basking in the sun.
Thanks for hanging out with us for so long, Tam. We miss you enormously.
I loved you from the start,
You picked me up and took me home and placed me in your heart.
Good times we had together,
We shared all life could throw,
but years passed all too quickly,
My time has come to go.
I know how much you miss me,
I know your heart is sore,
I see the tears that fall when I’m not waiting at the door.
You always did your best for me,
Your love was plain to see,
For even though it broke your heart
you set my spirit free.
So please be brave without me,
One day we’ll meet once more,
For when you’re called to Heaven,
I’ll be waiting at the door. ❤
You made our lives so much happier and we love you so much mama. Rest easy baby. Say hi to Tatiana and Diego!
She got to travel with us and go on many adventures, such as boating, camping, hiking and swimming. She loved her walks and her treats. She always had lots of kisses to give and was a tough girl all the way to her very last breath.
“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.” Anatole France
To the sweetest girl EVER We didn’t have much time together, but I know you had a WONDERFUL LIFE here with me in Colorado. Texas was where your life started and was not kind to you. I saw your picture on a shelter site where your time was almost up and knew I had TO SAVE you. You looked so sad and dejected. Well, I got my wish and saved your PRECIOUS LIFE and you came to me so NEEDY, but loving. You adjusted to the HIGH LIFE immediately and we spent hours going for walks and daily car rides, just to see the world You had to leave way too soon as your time spent here with me was short. Rest in peace my PRECIOUS LILY. Until we meet again, run free of pain with all my other BABIES WHO were there to welcome you home. Always in my Heart, SWEET LILY, MY ANGEL
We are heartbroken. You were the most wonderful and much-loved member of our little family. Thank you for teaching us unconditional love and we miss you tremendously.
We hope you doing what you loved the most…swimming.
Love you always!
Thank you Dr. Burnett for your compassion and for allowing us to share our many memories.
The greatest pup we could’ve ever hoped for! We were so blessed to have him in our family.
I lived in a lot of different places over the years Syd and I were together. I once lived in an apartment building where the floors surrounded a central courtyard. All the apartment entrances looked the same, with identical doors and windows. Each evening, Syd would go out and explore, and then jump up into the window sill when she was ready to come back in. Sometimes she miscalculated by a floor above or below, but it was amazing how often she managed to get it right. When I got married, Syd became not just mine, but ours, and this house became Syd’s permanent home for the last half of her life. Here she had staircases to race up and down, a favorite chair beside the window to sleep in, lots of rooms with sunspots to lie in, and a back yard she never grew tired of exploring. R.I.P. Sydney, a great companion for 20 years.
