Ani (Anastasia): 9/9/2010 - 9/23/2018
Our dear, sweet, "Ani girl" passed away last night, from lymphoma. She leaves a hole in our hearts - the hearts that she filled with all of her love.
She was our first dog, and she was so wonderfully sweet and cheery. Her precious tail, always wagging at hyper-speed. She was always so happy to meet everyone!
She will live in us forever, but no longer be by our side. We loved her, and miss her every minute. Thank you, Tender Touch team, for giving her such good care and so much love. We are forever grateful. XOXOXOXOXO
Remi: 1/1/2008 - 7/9/2018
I still remember the video of the day we brought home our adorable 8-week-old Lab puppy. He soon grew into a "mama's boy," a sweet, playful friend who snuggled with me when I was sad and snored like a freight train when he slept.
Remi joined our family when our only other child was Max the Husky, before our son was born in 2010. Once he reached toddlerhood, Remi had trouble understanding why this little human was so loud and clumsy. He became stressed and fearful. After he gave a warning snap at our son in the summer of 2013, we made the incredibly difficult decision to rehome our grown pup after he'd been with us for 5 years.
Cocoa: 2/13/2005 - 5/8/2018
Sadly, our sweet Cocoa passed on to the Rainbow Bridge 2 months ago . We knew she was very special cat when we brought our dog Hal to a pet shelter and she picked us out. She rubbed right up to him and we knew she was the one for our family.
Cocoa's best friends were Hal, Buster, and Ruby (all dogs) & our children Lexi and Tony. She made this dog lover a cat lover too and is the reason our two kids are truly cat obsessed. ❤️
We were truly blessed to have her as part of our family for a little over 13 years. We miss you Cocoa. She was truly the sweetest! She has forever left her paw prints on our hearts.
There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of all its beautiful colors.
Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass.
When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place.
There is always food and water and warm spring weather.
The old and frail animals are young again.
Those who were sick, hurt or in pain are made whole again.
There is only one thing missing - they are not with their special person who loved them so much on earth.
So each day they run and play until the day comes when one suddenly stops playing and looks up!
The nose twitches! The ears are up! The eyes are staring and this one runs from the group!
You have been seen and when you and your special friend meet, you take him in your arms and hug him.
He licks and kisses your face again and again - and you look once more into the eyes of your best friend and trusting pet. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be apart.
