Loved You Best

So this is where we part, My Friend,
and you'll run on, around the bend,
gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.
I will go on, I'll find the strength,
life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
share one last look, before I grieve.
There are others, that much is true,
but they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
will remember well all you've taught.
Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
take with you this...I loved you best

In Memory of Jada

I adopted Jada, formerly known as Chestnut when she was with you guys, from your shelter in 2011. She was my best friend for 8 years, but at the end of last year she lost her battle with a long term auto immune disease. I thank you guys so much for giving me such an amazing companion. I miss her terribly every day, but if it weren’t for the amazing work you do, I never would have had the chance to love so deeply such a wonderful dog. Thank you again.

Until you meet again at the Bridge… Godspeed Jada


My Belle,
You were a wonderful companion and the sweetest dog I’ve ever known. I love you and miss you.
