Miss Soo Willoughby Tussing -October 2005, 16 years old
Miss Soosy! My amazing eternal companion, Royal Dachshund
(half Pembroke Welsh corgi, half standard tan dox) of the Tussing-Yates
tribe. Mom's baby gurl...and 'God's perfect idea of a perfect
Soo Willoughby had a strong will to live and was at her mom's side for
13 years. Throughout her too-short life she survived living in an animal
shelter for four long months, total liver failure, a CBT seizure and
finally advanced stage lung cancer by six months to our vet's amazement.
In between all that she lived a life full of hugs, cuddles, and endless
tasty hooman and pet meals with her pack. Miss Soo lived the last year
of her life on Vashon Island, the most enchanted little island on the
planet where her mom began seriously cartooning her likeness. Prior to
her stint in the Seattle area she lived in the great state of Texas. Soo
Willoughby has touched many hooman lives and her siblings, Johnnie
Hollywood and Sibble Ellerbee and our bird, Magellan will miss her. Be
at rest, baby girl.

Bye Bye Red Dog. We miss you already.
Arbie Perron - October
2005, 13 years old
Arbie, We miss our 'Big Red' so much. You know how much
we love you. We have your collar and tags on top of your urn on the TV,
with your photo attached. Jr is a lonely hound with you away. I always
thanked you every day for babysitting him, but now you are his personal
angel watching over him. You are Grandma and Grandpa's angel, too. We
look up to the sky to say good night to you each night. You are in our
hearts forever! Say hi to C.H. and Peaches for us. We love you
Pixel (Princess Pixel Von Shroeder) - October 2005, 13 years, 2 months
Pixel have been our beloved child for the last 13 years.
Through adversities and ailments we have nursed her back to health and
devoted our lives to her wellbeing. In return she brought us immense joy
and delighted our lives every single day.
She is gone now, our brave little girl and our hearts are full of sorrow
and grief. And even though time will heal our bleeding hearts it will
never erase her beautiful image from them.
Rest in peace, our sweet, little girl.
Leisl - October 2005, 4 years, 1 month old
My darling Leisl, I am so sorry I had to let you go, but
you were in so much pain and your little legs just gave out on you. It
broke my heart to make the decision and I hope it was the right one. You
were my best friend and never left my side. We did everything together
and you never let me down, even when people did. You kept me warm in bed
in winter and loved going for drives with me. Thank you for giving me
four years of happiness and I hope you are not in pain any longer. I
will love you forever and never forget you ...
Heidi Taylor - October 2005, 12 years, 6 months old
We love you and miss you so very much. You are the best little girl ever
and we were blessed to have had you in our lives. Hannah has heard so
much about you and will always look up to you. We promise to love her
and you always and forever. Everybody who ever met you loved you. You
have touched so many hearts and hope you know how very deeply we love
you. I think we know you know. You are the most loveable sweetie in the
world. Some day we'll all get to do the 'Friday Dance' together again
and there will be Pupperonies all around.
Love and kisses always and forever,
Love Mom, Dad, and Hannah Schnitzel
Savannah Georgia Nelson Schoenecker - October 2005, 3 years, 10 months
Savannah, I can't believe that you are truly gone. I
still expect my little 'puppitus of love' to jump up on the couch to
snuggle with her Momma. After your brother goes to bed and the house is
quiet I miss you the most. That was our alone time and I looked forward
to it every night- I know that you did too. I'm so glad that we had the
whole summer together to sit outside in the sun to relax. You loved
lying in the sun and I remember many cold days during winter when the
sun was shining and you insisted on having the door open so you could
soak up the rays. Your Dad and I would freeze, but you were happy! This
Christmas will be so hard without you - you would have been four years
old two days after Santa Paws arrives. My heart breaks when I think that
you won't be here to stick your nose in your stocking looking for your
Greenies or scratching at the wrapping paper to open your new blankie.
Please know that I will never forget the most wonderful dog in the whole
world and neither will your Daddy or brother. I can't wait to see you
again - we will play ball for hours on end. I love you pup! Until we
meet at the Rainbow Bridge...
Your Momma Kara
Ruby Wade - October 2005, 14 years, 6 months old
Mommy's dearest little Ruby, you don't know how much I
miss you. You have been gone seven weeks now and there is not a day I
don't think about you. You were always by my side. My little bed buddy
that always keep me warm. My buddy in my office sitting on the sofa just
waiting for me to hold you as I did often. You were such a good girl. We
will always remember how you loved to ride in Daddy's hot rod. Your long
ears would blow in the wind. I'm so sorry I had to put you down. It was
the hardest thing I could of down. But your little body just gave up and
I know you hung in there for me. Love and kisses from your Mommy and
Daddy. Mommy's little boss dog.
Jean Valjean -
October 2005, 16 years, 4 months old
Valjean, AKA 'Baby', you gave us 16 of the best years of
our lives, and the sorrow of your parting has not diminished, the pain
of waking up and finding your cold, hard body lying where I had set you
down the night before, is eased only by the look of contentment on your
face as you left this world for a better place, free of pain.
Farewell my friend, and God speed.
Dad and Mom
Bill - October 2005, 13 years, 4
Good bye my friend. I did not want you to
go and I miss you. You were unique and a great friend. I

and you have peace.
