This letter from Peyton to Keltie was written on Tuesday, February 25, 2014Keltie

Dear Keltie,

I can't put into words how much I miss you. You were my first pet, and the 10 years I had you were the most wonderful. The last 2 months have been awful without you. I wish there was more I could have done. When I got the call that you most-likely wouldn't make it more than a week, I went in the bathroom and sobbed. I never guessed that I would never see you again. I simply went to bed. My mom woke me up the next morning, and said that you passed. I never got out of the car at your service, and I hope you forgive me. I don't know how much longer I can go without seeing your pretty little face. I hate Cancer, and always will. I hope you are happy up in Heaven. I can't wait to see you again.

Missing You,

Dear Paige,

Wow, 2 weeks already and I still can barely write this cause I can't see the keys. Tears of both joy and sorrow. Remembering lots of walks that you listened to my problems ,trips to work just to get your hot dog and who could ever forget the ice cream. You were the best!!!You took the shots as you always were, easy and peaceful. I know you are better off and I am too. I don't have to look at you hobbling around and not being able to do what you loved doing...running, sniffing and pleasing me. I know how hard you tried to keep pleasing me, but it wasn't about me, it was us, as a team. We had 16 great years girl, thank you for being my friend! Love, Dad

Dear Midnight,

I fell in love with you the moment I laid eyes on you. For over 13 years I was blessed to have you to play with, to hug, to kiss and to love. I'll forever be thankful for your presence in my life. Your love filled my soul with peace!

This letter from Mom,Dad andChloe to Scamp was written on Tuesday, February 4, 2014

Dear Scamp,

There is not a day that passes that we don't think of you! You were the best buddy I ever had;and,mom misses her little man. You were only 9 lbs.; but, your heart was the size of a giants. Our walks,chasing squirrels,sitting with you on our lap. Times we miss ; but,smiles of great memories. You were an inspiration with your life long heart problem that couldn't stop you from being the loving,caring;and,family protector you so willingly gave to us. We were blessed to have you with us for 12 yrs.. You allowed vet students and doctors to better learn from your malady. Maybe you helped save more lives like you saved ours! I miss not saying good-bye and take care of the house every morning;and, getting my hug when I get home even before I canclose the door. We traveled all over the country and everyone that met you,loved you. Scamp, we will be together again. Until we meet at the Rainbow Bridge it's your job;as usual,to watch over all our furry children that passed before you. You are so missed little guy!

This letter from Kim your mom to Nubbin was written on Monday, January 6, 2014

Dear Nubbin,

The holidays have come and gone and I find myself missing you more with each day that passes.Out of the blue I have these crying episodes and even though I bought a few books on how to deal with the loss of a pet I still find myself at a loss on how to deal with you not being here.You were so much more to me than my cat.You meant everything to me and I am struggling to fill this crater inside of me.I see you in my dreams and it is those moments that I feel you the closest to me.It helps me feel you are still close to me.I talk to you out loud all the time helps me keep you here.This is my third letter to you and I know there will be many more to come. I want to concentrate on celebrating your life and not dwelling on your death.I just don't know how to. Kim G.

This letter from Daddy and Momma to Moses was written on Thursday, December 26, 2013

Dear Moses,

We found out 3 weeks ago that you were sick and would not get better. We had Christmas Saturday and you were right there in the middle of all the fun. You spoke to everyone, and everyone spoke to you. Almost like we were all saying goodbye. You were sick but still had you happy sweet spirt. We spent that rainy Sunday visiting all day the next day. We did not leave you because we knew our time with you was almost gone. Your bark was weak but your tail wagged just as it always did. Monday came and you played with MoJo and Molly. You 3 swapped bones and enjoyed your time together that day. Monday night was when your tired sick body had decided it was done. You needed help to finish your sweet life out without anymore pain. It was the hardest thing me and your Daddy has ever done. It broke our hearts to make the decision that it was time to let you go. Early Tuesday morning was your last day with us. We wish you could have stayed with us longer.

You have been such a blessing to us ever since we picked you up in Missouri. I feel in love at first sight. You had already been named Moses and Moses was perfect. You were born on Christmas and were a gift from God. We have loved you for your kind sweet nature. You were so good to the kids and other dags and kitties. Never tore anything up, and rarely had any accidents. We could not have ask for a better companion. Thank you sweet Moses for all your love. With love and affection we will always remember what a wonderful dog you were. Merry Christmas and Happy Birthday sweet Moses. I will miss you forever.

This letter from Mom to Rockie Rhodes was written on Friday, December 20, 2013Rockie Rhodes

Dear Rockie Rhodes,

This will be the first Christmas I have been without you in a decade. You came to me at time when I needed you the most. I was very ill with this rare pancreas birth defect and did not know how long I would live. So you came into my life and right away you became my friend, my protector, and my snuggle buddy. I honestly believe that you were one of the main reasons that I beat the odds and survived not only the whipple in 2004, but am still here today. I miss you so much, but I am glad you are no longer in any pain from the stomach cancer. I will see you again one day, I know this in my heart. Always remember I love you "My Rockie Rhodes"



This letter from Mama, Daddy & Ty to Phibie was written on Thursday, December 19, 2013Phibie

Dear Phibie,

I had a feeling this morning when I left you, I wouldn't be coming home to see you sitting up waiting for me to walk in the door. I said my goodbyes to you every morning before I left for work and today was no different. The only thing I said different today to you was make sure you tell Nina that I love and miss her and I understand if you need to go to sleep sweet Angel. Last thing I remember this morning was petting the top of your head and feeling where my tears dropped on you. Those same tears were dropped on you as I wrapped you up in your blanket for the last time. I'm so thankful my Mama was here with you when you took your last breath. It broke my heart that I wasn't here with you when you left but so thankful you were not alone. Mom said if only I had been a minute earlier I would have seen you. You were still warm when I got to you.

I know you knew how much I loved you because I told you every single day starting with the day I brought you home. I remember Mom, Dad and Uncle Brant telling me " You don't need to get a dog your first year in College and having a dog is a big responsibility". Well, going to the shelter on Aug 15th 1999 and spending $40 on your adoption fee was one of the best decisions I've ever made. You stole my heart that day and you will forever remain there. You put a bright light in my life for 14 wonderful years. You picked a beautiful day to leave this world. The sun was out and not a cloud in the sky. Guess that was your way of telling me goodbye and still letting your light shine on me.

Phibie, there will not be a single day that goes by that you won't cross my mind. I'll probably never get over you but that's ok because nothing will ever take your place. Ty is sitting with me as I type wiping my tears. He knows I'm upset and I have him to help me get through this just like You and Ty both helped me when Nina passed. You will always be my first true love Phibie. I know you and sweet Nina are together again running and playing. Run Phibie Run!!! The Cancer took your leg and that awful infection took your life but nothing will take our memories. You will forever live in our hearts sweet Angel! Until we meet again Sweet Girl. Good Night and We Love You!


Mama, Daddy & Ty

This letter from Mom Mom to Angus D. Hugglesworth was written on Tuesday, December 17, 2013

Dear Angus D. Hugglesworth,

We lost you before you even turned 2 and it was like I lost one of my children. Even after the months have gone by, We feel your presence and sometime see you out of the corner of our eye. Your Farky dog misses you so much and doesn't want to get close to your baby kitties any more. I know how you loved those kittens and we tell Farky all the time that it's alright to love them because you would want that for him. I cried the other day, We got our stockings out and yours was in the box, when I saw it, it was like fresh waves of sadness once again. The holidays are harder than I expected. You aren't here to sleep under the tree. I miss you sleeping on my feet at night and all of the funny little faces you would make. I hope you're having a wonderful Holiday time up in heaven, I'm sure that Grandma and Grandpa are spoiling you, they loved fur babies so I know you are in loving arms in heaven. Always know that mommy loves you. I loved you so much that I had to take you to end the suffering. You were looking at me pleading to make it stop and that was all I could do in the end was to let them give you peace. I love you and I miss you. And I'm sure we will feel your presence come Christmas day.


Mom Mom
