November 18, 1993 ­ August 28, 2002


Buster Brown, my big Golden boy I thank God for the short time I had you on this earth. I was hoping that we could have at least four or five more years together, but it was not to be. I love you so much and miss you terribly, and I look forward to the time when we will meet again in Heaven.

Love you forever,



Mom & Muffy

Newman, our beloved friend and companion
You asked so little, but deserved so much
You were happy with only a pat on your head
and a tickle of your ears
You gave those wonderful slobbery kisses
and waited patiently when we were away
You faced each instance of this monster disease
With dignity and courage
Your memories live on in every heart that you touched
Wait for us by the rainbow bridge
For we will always have you in our hearts
And our lives - 6 years was not long enough
But we would not have missed a single moment
Play and run pain-free until we meet you at the bridge
Watch for us for we will be watching for you

Bear was diagnosed with Idiopathic Epilepsy, February 1, 2002.  You had such a short time on earth, but you made a mark on our hearts that we will carry with us the rest of our lives.

We're so sorry we could not make you better. We did not win the battle, even though you fought like a little soldier until the end. The seizure "monster" no longer has you my sweet baby boy. 

Bear was helped to Rainbow Bridge by Jim and Sheryl. Dad held you tight and Mom whispered, "Wait for Mommy at the Bridge."

There are so many little things I miss about refusing the treat you were offered until I picked your favorite. The funny little way you squeaked at the end of a yawn. The way you would align yourself under Dads arm for a back scratch. The way you would sniff ever so gently in Dads ear when you needed to go outside in the middle of the night. The way you would cuddle with me in bed (my own personal bed warmer).  

I miss you sitting at my side as I desperately searched for information on Canine Epilepsy. You were there when I discovered this wonderful site and all the wonderful people that became our "Epi-Family" and you were there when I would chat with the other Moms on Sunday nights (Mom, are you talking about me again?)

You were just always there! You are missed my precious darling pup-pup!

Sheryl, Jim and Smoky

I Only Wanted You
They say memories are golden
well maybe that is true.
I never wanted memories,
I only wanted you. A million times I needed you,
a million times I cried.
If love alone could have saved you
you never would have died. In life I loved you dearly,
In death I love you still.
In my heart you hold a place
no one could ever fill. If tears could build a stairway
and heartache make a lane,
I'd walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again. Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as God calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

Beautiful Kayla, we miss you more than we ever thought imaginable, but your
spirit is still with us. Sometimes at night I think I still hear you howl and
I always expect you to coming running around the corner to meet me. Watch
over us and run free until we meet again someday at The Bridge. You will
forever be our "Sweetest Puppy"....

We wish we could have told you,
in words you'd understand,
We wanted you to stay with us.
This wasn't what we'd planned.

We wish somehow to tell you,
How empty we now feel.
A part of us went with you,
A part that time can't heal.

We wish we had you back again,
to fill this empty space.
But one day we'll be together
in a far, far better place.

Dear Mani,
We let you go not because we did not love you,
but because we loved you too much to force you to stay.
You fought hard to stay alive, my friend.
In the end though, you couldn't conquer death.
But neither did death conquer you.
Death cures all diseases, mends all broken bones, breaks all chains,
And you are free at last.
Goodbye my dear friend.
Wait for us; we miss you terribly,
Waiting for
Lynne and Barry

My baby were the best birthday present I could have asked for. I keep trying to figure out exactly how and when you became such a part of my heart, and I think it was probably that very first day I held you at just four weeks old. You were tiny enough to fit in just one hand. Once we got you home, you grew...and grew...and grew...not only in size, but in how much a part of us you became. After your first seizure in January 2002 we kept our hopes up that we would beat the monster, but it was not to be. We helped you over the bridge, where you can be pain free, seizure free...even though it meant we had to lose you for now. Run happy and play with my angel kitties Hajjii, Blue and Dolly and know that one day we will all be together again. We love you and miss you, baby boy! You are in our thoughts and hearts every day.

"Through all the ups and downs in my life you were there for me. You somehow knew when I was having a bad day and always made it better, a look, a wag, a silly woof. You won, the monster visits no more and you are finally free. I miss you terribly, but until we meet again my dearest friend, you will live on in my heart."
