RIP Lucy. Needless to say we are devastated to lose our precious furr baby at age 7. You definitely changed our lives the day you adopted us. We are forever grateful for all your love and companionship. It’s so hard to say goodbye. You’ve changed our lives once again by leaving us. Always in our hearts.

Lazer unexpectedly crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 8/22/17 after passing peacefully in his sleep. To say Lazer was a once in a lifetime dog would be an understatement. He was hands down the smartest animal I have ever come across. Lazer was loyal to a fault, loving, strong willed and always had a smile on his face. We hope there are lots of tractors for you to chase on the other side, we'll see you again, sweet boy!

Lola was a very sweet surprise. She loved being part of our family and was our other dog, Curry's, best friend. She will be missed.

-Love Angie, Mike, Tiffinee, and your sister Ziva..

Oh sweet Barbosa- the Sphinx, The Great Protector. Loosing our 6 year old male Dane suddenly to bloat was heart wrenching. I found him early in the morning on Thursday the 8th and recognized the symptoms immediately.. My husband loaded him up in my SUV and I rushed him to AEC. Despite my rushing, it was just too late. The staff was so amazing- Dr Worl was compassionate beyond words.
Be good sweet boy. We will see you again one day- keep your eyes wide and your howl low..

You came into our lives as a tail wagging puppy. As the years went by, even when you didn't feel well toward the end, that tail still wagged. You saw us through the deaths of both or our parents and you probably didn't know what a comfort you were. You just seemed to know it was what we needed. You never met a stranger and we could all learn a lot from your unconditional acceptance. We loved you with all of our hearts and we miss you greatly. We loved you sweet Mattie.

We found Rocco at an animal shelter. He was just a little puppy, 8 weeks old. We saw him from across the room and it was love at first sight. We rushed over to him and were able to take him into a playroom and see if he was right for us. He must have ran around the room 5 times! After tiring himself out, we picked him up and held him. He was the perfect puppy. His eyes were full of love, his furry face was so cute and handsome, and we knew he was our puppy. We brought him home where he quickly became spoiled. He got to eat good dog treats, and had 5 or 6 dog toys to choose from. He was so smart. On the first day we had him, we were already able to teach him to fetch. That was his favorite. On the second day he had already learned to sit. When we took him outside, he was so brave, he wasn't afraid of anything. When he would see people or other dogs, his tail would wag and you could see his mind fill with curiosity and wonder. His favorite things were dog food(as you might expect), fetch, tug of war, being held, and laying in his little dog bed chewing on toys. Rocco brought happiness and love into our home, he quickly became family to us.
We didn't know at the time we got him, but unfortunately he had Parvovirus, and Kennel Cough that turned into pneumonia. When he started showing symptoms, we rushed him to the vet where he was hospitalized for almost a week. Those were some of the hardest days of our lives. Rocco was so strong and fought as hard as he could to stay with us. He never lost his love- even when he was skin and bones, when we went to visit him, his tail would just start wagging and wagging.
Very sadly, after a long and tough fight with illness, Rocco passed away on the morning of August 22nd, 2016. Our hearts are filled with grief and sadness that we lost our little pup, but we are glad that he is no longer in any pain.
On one of the last visits we had with Rocco, he was sleeping and dreaming. In his dreams he was playing. His little paws were moving like he was running, and he made little muffled barks. It looked like he was playing tug of war in his dreams. That is what we would like to believe he is doing now. Running around in the grass, playing with other puppies, and having so much fun. No longer suffering, but strong and happy.
Rocco taught us more about loving and life than we ever could have expected. We will always love him and remember our little puppy.
We love you Rocco, you're a good boy.

We can't thank the staff enough through this difficult time. Leo was a faithful, loyal, and loving family member. We will miss his jumping and barking, but know he will meet us on the other side someday.

Tribute to Liz:
I listen so very closely
Only to hear no barking now
It's hard to believe my friend you're gone
oh my somehow.
The days seem less exciting to come home and find you're not here
Oh I wish I could turn back time and see your smiles and cheer.
You're in a much better place
no hurt no pain no tears
But oh how I wish I could turn back time and see your smiles and cheer.
I love you as much today as I did when you left my sight
I hope you truly know now Liz
we only said goodnight.
You're on that Rainbow Bridge
happy with others you now know
Oh, Liz, I hope you know,
it was hard to let you go.
Until the day we meet again
you will run, bark and play
Keep safely watch over us my friend
is my prayer for you today

A beautiful, loyal and wonderful dog! Liz brought us such good memories. Life won't be the same for Tanner, Liz's companion of 13 years. Girl, you were so loved and special. It was hard to let you go.

I grew up with dogs, so I've had quite a few in my life. Ansel was the best of them all. He was so sweet and loving, and he made my day brighter every morning when I'd get cuddles and every evening when he greeted me with his doggie smile. This photo was the last taken of him, and he was asking, "Mom, can I get into bed with you?" Being a sucker for big, brown eyes and for his floppy collie ears, of course I said yes. I'm so privileged to have been his human for eight years. I hit the doggie lotto the day Ansel picked me at the shelter, when he laid his little furry head onto my shoulder and I melted. I love you, sweet boy, and I hope you're getting unlimited bacon and chasing bunnies, kitties, and squirrels all day in the Summerlands. I'll see you again one day!

You were my best friend. My heart will forever miss you. There will never be another you. I love you CalCal baby girl. God let me have you for five wonderful years. You blessed my life. Now you have gone across the rainbow bridge. Give them possums hell up there. You were the best.

Rest In Peace.
Our precious boy. Mama and Daddy will always love you and never forget you.
You brought so much joy in our life, it is difficult to go on without you.
We cry every day and always will. We look forward to reuniting with you in heaven where we will feel your warm snuggle and blessed kisses.
We love you, Solomon.

In memory of my sweet, precious, baby Bella. My family and I lost my precious baby suddenly on Sunday night, 9/7/2014, to bloat. She loved water, loved getting a bath (because she she absolutely hated to stay dirty), loved her ears rubbed, and was so protective of my parents and myself. She was an amazing companion. I miss waking up to her fuzzy head staring at me.. I miss the slobber she'd get ALL over me... I miss seeing her hair floating across the floor... I miss everything about my precious baby. I know she was old and probably wouldn't have survived the surgery, so I made the hardest decision of my life and had her put to sleep. I know that she's in doggy heaven now, pain free, and able to run around and play, but it still doesn't take away the numbness and pain of missing my baby girl. RIP my sweet Bella... 'til we meet again some day.

Shelby was our "first child". Thanks for ten wonderful years of memories. You will always hold a special place in our hearts. We will miss you and think of you always.

Your memory will be with us always.

You are cherished and loved forever.

Frisky, I love you so much. You were not only a friend but a family member. I remember you loved to sit in the window and sleep above my head. You won't be forgotten - rest in peace, my angel.

Maddie was a wonderful, sweet dog. She was a rescue and some kind of mix between Corgi and who knows! I loved her and she loved us every breath she took till her last. I stayed with her that day. The staff were wonderful. They gave a plaster imprint of her paw with her name on it. Then they took care of the cremation.

When I was 13 my aunt called me and told me she had a present for me. I go to her house and she as three puppies in a box.”It’s your birthday, hannah! which one do you want?” I picked out a tan chihuahua puppy I called Tinkerbelle, because my aunt told me I couldn’t have the black and white one - they wanted her. before I could even bring Tinkerbelle home, dad had changed his mind.
My aunt gave her daughter the naming duties and out of all the names - she chose Caillou. (which actually means little pebble in french) Caillou was tiny and afraid of everything. It got to the point where she’d just stay hidden under the bed.
When I would stay with my aunt, I’d get the puppy from under the bed and she’d sleep with me all night. She began to come out of hiding when I was around. One day, my aunt and uncle were going out of town and they needed a place to keep her. We offered to keep her and she stayed with us for a week. She had a lot of fun chasing the cats and playing with the other dogs - it was obvious she fit right into our family and soon, she was given to us.
I remember my mom saying “Hannah this isn’t your dog - it’s the family’s dog”. If only she knew how wrong she was. It took a whole year before she’d let my dad even touch her, she was so terrified of human contact. She began sleeping in my bed and it was a nightly ritual until the day she passed.
Caillou followed me around everywhere. Literally. If i was in the bathroom, she was right outside the door. She wouldn’t eat unless I stood right there because she wanted to follow me up the steps. I always knew where she was by the click of her claws on a hard surface.
At night, it was law that I curled up on my side and Cai slept in the curve, right next to my stomach and always under the blankets. I swear that dog was part mole, she always had to be under something.
Then the epilepsy started. It was scary. I hated watching my best go through that, but she’d always pull it together and get better.
This time it just didn’t happen. She couldn’t come out of the seizures.
Caillou (juju, pretty girl, little bit, little dog, cai, whatever name we called you) thank you for being my best friend. I’ll truly never forget you.
You were honestly the best thing that ever happened to me.
(Thanks to Dr. Elliott for doing everything he could)

Loyal, sweet friend. We miss you so much.
Our heartfelt thanks to the Animal Emergency Clinic for your loving care!

I knew from the moment I met her at a Stop and Adopt event in Highlands NC, I just knew Binky and I were meant to be together.
I was blessed to be her mom for 13 years. I will miss her every day for the rest of my life. Letting her go, was both the hardest and most loving thing I could have done. Thanks to your staff and the staff of the Holly Tree Animal Hospital for taking such great care of her.

Cinder brightened the room when she came wiggling in. Always a quiet but happy girl, she seemed to take great joy in greeting the humans she encountered, wherever she went. Aside from some significant graying of her hair, it was hard to tell she was an old dog. She continued to have a bounce in her step and a twinkle of excitement for every meal and every walk into her senior years. She was one in a million and will always be remembered with great love.
1999 - 2013
Blackie's original name was Kitten. Then it was Bullet. Finally she settled on Blackie. She was a beautiful tiger striped kitty who loved to go on hunting expeditions. She would disappear for two weeks, and then show up fat. Maybe she just had a vacation home she went to. We'll never know for sure.

Happy, Loving, Patient, and Loyal...We will love you always!
Woody was only with us for a short time. He was a wonderful little guy and we loved him.
