Chaunzee & Karlie

Chaunzee & Karlie

05/01/2004 — 09/11/2018

Chaunzee loved being the “lobby dog” at doggy daycare - napping and snoring under the desk! Karlie was the sweetest, most loving cat ever! Both of them are dearly missed.

Remington (Remi Roo)

Remington (Remi Roo)

12/20/2022 — 12/10/2023

Remington lived a short, yet happy life. He was a loving young man. You could often find him roaming the isles at PetSmart or walking around the farmers market, and stopping in front of everyone until the gave him head scratches. Remi loved his mom and dad (he loved his mom more though), and had a little fur brother named Wesley. Remington was a huge cuddle bug, and would spend the night laying between his mom’s legs. While we might of lost him at a young age, he spent every day showing us how much he loved us and we did the same for him. You were my best friend baby, I hope you fly high and make a bunch of new friends.

Baxter (Bubba)

Baxter (Bubba)

03/27/2005 — 05/02/2019

Baxter was a friend to everyone and fierce protector of his kids. He spent his days patrolling the yard, swimming in the pond, and begging for snacks. He knew just how to swindle each one of his family members. Fetch always turned into chase and if you told him to go outside… he didn’t hear you. He taught us so much during his time with us and will always be loved.

Alley & Spooky

Alley & Spooky

I am a cat person. Tobin is a dog person. So guess which type of pet we have always owned. If you guessed cat - you would be correct. We "rescued" Alley in November 1996. My uncle Ed was near the end of his fight with leukemia and he told me there was a sick mama cat and a kitten in the dump that I needed to rescue. We could not find the mama, but we found the kitten. We took her home and she became our first pet. We made her a bed in the spare bedroom and tucked her in for the night. I told her good night and walked across the hall to my bed. I turned around to see this little ball of fur climbing the comforter on our bed and snuggling next to my pillow. She was my cat and that was where she slept for the next 18 years. She passed away August 3, 2014 from kidney failure. Spooky showed up at our house on Christmas 2005. And there is a story about her. My mother passed away from congestive heart failure in 2002. She was a pet person. I remember our cats Tiger, Rusty, Semi, and Bert. And our dogs King, Muttley, Rastus, and Breeze. They all held a special place in our family. Madalyn wanted a cat of her own because Alley did not “like” her. When I was pregnant with Madalyn, our vet suggested that anytime Alley went near the baby’s room, we squirt her with a water to keep her out of that room. We think Alley associated the creature who slept in that room with punishment, because she would never go near Madalyn. Madalyn kept asking why Alley did not like her. Could she get a cat who liked her? Tobin said absolutely no to another cat. Right before Christmas Madalyn told me she had talked to grandma and she was bringing her a special present for Christmas. And her present would be in her playhouse. I humored her with a “that’s nice honey.” Sure enough on December 26 when we returned from Elwood, there was a stray cat in her playhouse. According to our neighbor, she showed up Christmas day. Anyone who knew my mother would agree – she would have given Madalyn a cat for Christmas because we couldn’t say no. Spooky has now joined Alley across the rainbow bridge. We miss them both and our house seems empty. No cat sleeping on Tobin’s lap last night. No cat with her nose on my computer keyboard “helping” me type this morning. Our bay window does not have a cat in it soaking up the morning sun. No cat begging for water when we get a glass from the fridge. We won't have to hide the fireplace remote from Spooky. Yes, she figured out how to turn it on so she could warm herself. Our pets make our lives full and they break our hearts when they pass away. I know people who will not allow their children to have pets because they do not want to deal with the heartache when the pet passes away. Yes, our hearts ache for our lost pets, but the joy they have brought to our lives far outweighs that grief.

Larry

Larry

01/22/2009 — 01/25/2023

Larry was truly the best dog to ever exist. We got Larry from the animal shelter when I was 3 because I wouldn’t sleep in my bed at night. For 14 years Larry and I were best friends. We did everything together. I miss Larry so much but I know he’s up there running around. I love you Lar Lar

Mister Bubbles

Mister Bubbles

01/10/2006 — 09/03/2021

Mr.B will be remembered as a loyal, loving, and gentle giant. He enjoyed going for boat rides, hiking in Colorado, and taking “poodle naps” with the alternate human. He assisted the lady of the house in her studio and looked after her little ones. His loyalty, kindness, and gentle nature is missed daily. “There’s no angry way to say bubbles.”

Jaixen

Jaixen

04/25/2002 — 06/07/2019

So much to say about our sweet Jaixen. You gave us countless hours of love and happiness., you never knew a stranger. Our neighbors called you the “neighbor hood dog”! We miss you every single day, but are comforted knowing you are running free again with no pain. Till we meet again sweet boy. ♥️♥️♥️♥️♥️

Scout

Scout

08/15/2010 — 09/25/2023

Scout could never leave the vet or groomer until she said goodbye to everyone there, including going behind the reception desks like she owned the place. On the way home, we would go through the car wash (she loved the car wash) and get a pup cup from Scooters. She was the sweetest girl.

Emily

Emily

01/15/2002 — 05/30/2018

I rescued Emily while working at Cottonwood! She was a very sassy girl but deep down was a softy! She had weird obsession with putting her face in shoes haha. She came into my life when I needed her most so I always said we saved each other! I only had her for 3 years before she passed but cherished our time together ❤️
