In Loving Memory of Nora
In Memory of Daisy
Dogs ask for so little and give so much, which is why I don’t understand how any could ever be abused or abandoned. They become teachers to humans and while they are with us, provide us with lessons of how to be better, how to love more and be less selfish, and with the short time they are with us, how much they can add to our joy and happiness. Daisy became my rescued fur-kid in 2009 when she was estimated to be 5 years old or so. I let her go on May 21, 2021 to proceed on the next journey, where I hope to meet her again when it’s my time to transition. She was a strong girl. My heart wanted to take her home from the vet to see if she would improve after the obvious signs of cancer (probably hemangiosarcoma that had metastasized), if only a miraculous cure would be found in the coming days. My head said otherwise, because I had seen this movie before with other dogs I have lost to cancer. My heart has a hole in it that connects to the holes left by my other angel dogs who have been taken away too soon by cancer. 12 years was not long enough my girl. I love you, miss you, and will never forget what you taught me so that I can be a better person.
In Loving Memory of Henry
Henry passed away this February from a very rare and aggressive form of lung cancer. He was the happiest and healthiest puppy but all of a sudden he fell ill. The next month he would've been 13 years old. Henry was full of love and life. He loved going to the dog park, planting trees in the backyard with my dad, and he loved watching movies with the whole family every weekend. He was always kind and loved his family unconditionally and what I want people to remember Henry for. Thank you for bringing so much happiness and love into our family's life. I think we needed Henry more than he needed us. We miss you so much!

In Memory of Jaxon
This is my Jaxon....he passed from prostate cancer when he was just 7. I miss him everyday. He was my teaching assistant, support system and best friend. He was also an Aquarius who loved watching out the window, sleeping in the cubbies and his little brother Beanie.
We miss you Jaxie!
In Memory of Rambi
Rest In Peace, beautiful Rambi. We love you forever.
In Memory of Bella
Bella passed from a very aggressive brain cancer in July. She was a rescue but in reality we rescued each other. She was so kind and loving and had a special gift of sensing when you were upset and needed some snuggles to cheer up, even with strangers. She loved road trips and accompanied me all over the country in the last year as I completed travel nurse assignments in COVID ICU’s from coast to coast, adding a little bit of light to a very dark time. She was only 5 when she passed and I only had the privilege of her company for 4 years, far too short but full of amazing memories I will cherish forever.
In Memory of Hopper
When my uncle passed away suddenly in May 2020, my family made the 1100 mile trip to bring Hopper to his new home with us. But only six months later, we learned he had soft tissue sarcoma. Radiation treatment bought a wonderful 9 months and we got to spend Thanksgiving, Christmas, New Year's, his birthday and Easter with Hopper. (This is him with his Easter basket) He's now met my uncle on the Rainbow Bridge and is snoring on the couch next to him in Heaven.

In Loving Memory of Cleo
Cleo was the best dog. We lost her to skin cancer that spread through her whole body at only seven years old. I still miss her everyday.
Forever our Kona-boy
Kona was diagnosed with bone cancer April 2021. We sadly lost him August 26th, 2021.
He changed our lives in the most beautiful way. He showed us what unconditional love and loyalty looks like.
He loved going on boat rides and camping. Our home and lives were not the same without him. Our family could not have asked for a better dog to come into out lives. He dearly missed and not a day goes by that we don't think about him and the joy he brought to our lives.

In Loving Memory of Kaeto
Kaeto came to us in June 2019 as a foster from the Washington Alaskan Adoption League (WAMAL) shortly after he was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma. It was originally found in his rear left leg which, after lengthy discussions with his vet, was amputated to help stop (or at least slow down) the spread of the cancer. He had the operation on July 10th and began IV chemo soon after. His spirit and love never wavered and I’m sure his sweet soul knew that we were doing the best we could for him. He bonded with our other two Malamutes instantly and became a very welcome and much loved part of the pack, to such an extent that we became foster fails and fully adopted him. For the first few months his energy was amazing as he quickly adapted to life as a tripod, easily keeping up with our 7-year-old on walks (Kaeto was 5) and even snapped the retractable leash he was on when he tore after a squirrel! Summer slipped into fall, and he proudly wore his Halloween hat walking through the neighborhood and enjoyed a hearty steak (he was allergic to poultry) thanksgiving dinner alongside Wizzard and Pyra, his fellow WAMAL alumni. We knew the odds were not in his favor so we gave him the best Christmas ever with his own stocking full of treats and toys and again…a big steak dinner. In January he got to play in the snow on the park & really gave Wizzard a run for his money, running and playing just like a normal, healthy dog…his spirit was amazing. He also celebrated his 6th birthday, and we took him to Norm’s in Fremont where he enjoyed everything on their doggie menu! But sadly, this was not to last as soon after, spots were found in his lungs during his routine monthly check up, the cancer had metastasized. We tried different meds, some very new, in an effort to give him the best quality of life for as long as possible. He began to limp, very faintly at first and worrying that in his exuberance he’d pulled a muscle or picked up some similar injury we took him in to be checked and it was here that we were told the devastating news that he had developed masses in one of his front legs. We were crushed. With very heavy hearts we switched his treatment to palliative care and gave him all the love and attention we could during his last few weeks. After a while we noticed he had difficulty in standing, then walking became more of a problem and in a very short period getting up became painful for him…we knew it was time. We arranged for one of the wonderful vets at Compassion4paws to come to the house and 8 months to the day after his surgery, enjoying a last few slices of beef, surrounded by love and with oh so tender hugs, we said goodbye.
There isn’t a day go by when I don’t miss his goofy, loving, kind soul. He was unique and deserved a longer and healthier life, but it was not to be. It with great pride that I’m taking part in this wonderful event in his memory, I miss him every day and am so very grateful to play a small part in help fund research to find a cure for this horrible disease so that future pups may be saved.

"My little soulmate" Beamer was a bright light and brought so much joy to us for the 15 years we had with him.
From the day we brought him home to the day we had to say goodbye, he was pure happiness.
