Jack Mushro
Jack Mushro
In Loving Memory
Well, the dreadful day did come. We lost our Jack, at 12 years old. He was known as "Smiling Jack!" as he would grin ear to ear to greet people. He was a gentle soul that was loved by many. I am missing him more, as each passes by. I miss his warm, soft body laying next to me. I miss him greeting and waiting for us to come home. He was a good friend.He listened. He knew when I was happy, and sad. He was there. I hope he is playing with Topher, who we lost in March of this year. And I hope he hangs out with my Dad in Heaven too!



Miss you, my goodest boy ever!

Daphne Ann
Daphne Ann
In Loving Memory
Daphne was a rescue dog that ended up rescuing us. Despite her juvenile cataracts she stole the show wherever she went. I'll always cherish our morning time sharing cheerios. And laugh fondly when we think of her attacking and growling at the tree trunk in our yard. She was such a loving dog. I still miss her kicking me at night when she was dreaming and how she always followed us around afraid of being alone. She may be gone but she'll always live on in our hearts and memories.

Sparky
Sparky
In Loving Memory
We recently lost our very much loved beagle, "Sparky". He was a member of our family for 13 years. Our family has so many memories of the years together with Sparky. I was a stay at home mom for many years to our two girls and Sparky. Three years ago I went to work full time. It was quite a transition for the entire family - including Sparky. EVERY DAY for a year, Sparky would meet me at the door and howl, whine, and bark at me for 10 minutes or so. I think he was very loudly showing his displeasure to my being gone during the day. He would do the same thing when we would go on a trip and leave him home. He loved us and wanted to be wherever we were. We miss him so much and our home is just not the same without him 😞

Topher
Topher
In Loving Memory
Topher was the most beautiful boy ever. He was well known around town for his size & beauty. I could never put into words how special this dog was to our family, (mostly his mom) :)



Topher loved visiting Marilla Park each day with his mom, dad, and brother, River. Topher was such a gentle giant. He was so very cool. He loved to play tug-of-war, lay around (especially in the snow), and go swimming! He was also really great at talking back. :)



Topher is loved and missed each day.

Max
Max
In Loving Memory
Max was added to our family to be a running mate to Rusty. We lost Rusty in May of 2017 and now Max has gone to heaven to run with Rusty again. Max was sick for a while but he hung tough and strong. Max boy you will be missed buddy!

Rusty
Rusty
In Loving Memory
Rusty was our families first pet. Rusty was a great dog and loved the family. He was not really fond of anyone outside of the family but was a great dog. Rusty will be missed by the whole family!

Bruno
Bruno
In Loving Memory
Bruno came into our lives two very short years ago.

Right from the start he was something special. He had so much sass and love in his heart. Everyone in the town knew Bruno, he was super sneaky & always snuck out the door with the dogs. I would often catch him walking down the sidewalks with random families or visiting the neighbors. He had NO problem making himself at home at other peoples homes haha.



Pretty sure Bruno thought he was a dog, I would often catch him drinking out of the toilet. He’s fetched balls before. He was always with our dogs, never cared about hanging with our other cat.



Everyday, I’d come home from work and my pictures on the entryway table would be laying on the floor and his big butt would be laying in their place purring up a storm.



Not a day goes by that I don’t think of my Bruno & I miss him so very much along with his Dad Jimmy, his canine sisters Daisy and Cassie & his feline sister Nora. ❤️

Chatta

With a heavy heat we had to say good bye to are sweet chatta. She gave a good fight but her cancer got the best of her. I want to thank everyone at happy tails I know everytime she was there she was loved. Thank you Dr. Jess and Dr. Dan I know you both gave us every option to save are girl. Also want to thank all the lady's she figured out how to get treats from you all. Thank you Tina,Shari,Carrie,Kelly,Emilee and Jen I hope I didn't miss anyone cuz you where all so great. We received chatta as a rescue dog in 2014 and she quickly became are baby she had me and her mama trained fast I wouldn't trade the time we had with her for anything in the world. Like to think god gave us chatta for a reason think he knew we would stop at nothing to make sure she had the best care. Going to miss you baby girl daddy and momma loved you so very much😭
