Peach - May 2, 1999 - August 15, 2008

peach2_150.jpgIn loving memory of our best friend, Peach, who we love so very much. She will be in our hearts forever.

Peach was such a loving friend and companion who had such a rambunctious and playful heart. Her favorite pass times include chasing our cat freckles around the house, cuddling on the couch and going for walks at the doggy park. Everyone she met instantly fell in love with her. She will be always remembered in our hearts and dreams. We miss you so much! - Love, Bob, Olivia and Kids



Buddy - July 29, 1998 - January 12, 2009

Buddy's name says it all. He was everyone's buddy, always licking toes and playing with his tug-o-war toys. We could never be in a bad mood with you around. We miss our best friend so much already. We hope that wherever you are, you are having fun running and chasing other doggy friends. We love you so much; you will be in our hearts forever and ever. - Love, Mom



Leo - August 4, 1996 - February 18, 2009

leo1_150.jpgIn loving memory of Leo, our best friend and loving companion. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts for all the fun times and memories.


Leo will always be remembered as the most loving friends anyone could ever ask for. He was so good at chasing mousey-toys and romping and playing in the curtains or clean laundry right out of the dryer. He was a loving kitty soul who loved naps in the afternoon sunshine and cuddling up at the foot of the bed every night. We miss you and love you so much! - Love always, Kim & David
