02-20-2013 9:03 PM -- By: Ian Smith, Critters.com memorial: Lani Memorial We lost our precious Golden Retriever Lani last Thursday on Valentines Day...We had to rush her to the ER Vet...She was having troubles breathing and eating.....They had to pull blood work and do x-rays to determine what was wrong...It was heartbreaking to find out that she had developed a tumor that had ruptured in her spleen...The worst possible news we could of gotten...At 11pm we watched our beautiful Lani take her last breath...Chrissee and I embraced and held each other as the emotions just overwhelmed us....I put one hand on her heart and the other on her head..as I closed her eyes I whispered softly to her that I loved her and that she was going to be missed....We had a little ceremony the next day as we buried her in her favorite spot in the yard...We laid her on her doggy bed and added some pictures and 3 of her favorite toys....Goodbye Lani Girl...You are gone but never forgotten...We love you and we miss you.
02-09-2012 8:16 AM -- By: Meredith, Critters.com memorial: Toby Keith Memorial I just lost my Toby boy, he was only 8 years old and it was very sudden. He was fine a week ago and then in a matter of days it just happened. I took him to the vet Tuesday thinking they were going to give me a pill and send us home, I never in a million years thought I would be leaving without him. I knew losing a pet would be hard but I don't think I actually expected it to be this devastating to me and my family. I have cried every day almost all day since Tuesday and I just miss him so much. I just keep seeing his face in my hands and he looked so sad. This is breaking my heart.

01-10-2011 4:40 PM -- By: Jessica, Critters.com memorial: Mickey Memorial Has it really been two months since my precious little angel left this world for his new ventures in the next? Where does the time go, seems like just yesterday he was a tiny little baby boy waiting for his bottle. I never imagined he would be gone so soon from my life. I'm loosing his smell and forgetting how his fur felt under my fingers. All I have are memories of my little man. I try so hard to focus on the good memories that we shared we have a lifetime of photos but all my memory wants to go back to is the day he left this world. The hardest day of my life, and than I'm forced to relive that moment over and over again in my head. I swore my heart was absolutly broken that day, but it must have healed a little because everytime I envision Mickey taking his last breath my heart breakes over again. To all of you that have lost a precious furbaby I feel your pain and my heart is with you all. I cant express my gratitude to the kindess and understanding I have found on this page. This sight has been a gift to me straight from God, without the kindness I have been shown on here and with out all of you reaching out to me I would still be a total wreck. This sight has helped make my loss a little less lonely. God bless you all and all of our furangels that we all wish for one more day with!
10-23-2010 2:19 PM -- By: Joe , Critters.com memorial: Rocky Diamond Phillips Memorial I guess mourning a loss comes from your heart. You have to look into yourself and have no regret of what you have done in there life. I have no true regrets, they tought me so much in the short time they were here. I just think people should make sure that when they get a fur baby they treat that baby as a child, part of the family love every minute you have together cherish every thing you do together. Mostly love and devote time to building a relationship, because that baby will devote his or her life to you and love you unconditionally no matter what.
Key words: LOVE UNCONDITIONALLY!

09-08-2009 1:31 AM -- By: nancy, Critters.com memorial: little mouse the 2 Memorial It has been11 days since lost my best friend little mouse. I am having such a hard time without her. She was with me everyday for almost a year. She was my pride and joy. Everday was a new adveture with her. She stayed with me most of the day everday or she ran around on my computer table. The only time she was in her cage was at night or when I was out of the house. I spent so much time with her and now she is gone. I can not stop thinking about her. I left her on my computer table for a minute by herself and my cat got her. He took off with her and ran under the bed. He dropped her and she came running to me. I looked ro see if anything was wrong with her I saw nothing. The next day I got her up and her paw was hurt. As the day went buy she did not look good. I was told to leave her alone and maybe she would be alright tomorrow. The next day I woke up and she was hardly breathing I took her out and held her for a few hours until she died in my hand. I f only I did not leave her alone on the computer table she would still be here. I feel so guilty. I miss her so much. I come to this website everynight and just look at her Pictures and it brakes my heart. I don't know how to deal with all the pain. I don't have anyone I can talk to. No one understands how important that mouse really was to me. Everymoring I would take her out and now when I go to her cage it is empty. I just wish the pain would go away. I will never forget her.

02-24-2009 12:42 PM -- By: dawn, Pet's name: Bond i just lost my dog Bond yesterday, 2/23/09. he just got very ill and died soon after. i wasn't expecting to lose him before my older dog (14 years old) Will. Bond was 12 years old. he was a Christmas present 12 years ago. when he was two days old he nearly died. after we saved his life he took to me as though i was his mom. he was named "You Only Live Twice," he was a fighter and a lover just like James Bond. i miss him everywhere in the house because he would follow everywhere. i expect to see him, to hear him drink water from the bowl in his funny way, and to feel him next to me. Will and i are lost without him. i seek Will out to comfort him and in return he comforts me. we all have been lucky to have our furry and loving friends in our lives. they truly teach us how to love, and their spirits live with us until we meet at the Rainbow Bridge to join forever.

01-28-2009 9:38 AM -- By: Marlene, Critters.com memorial: Sammie Patterson Memorial How do you cope? I'm finding that with each passing day since I had to take our dear Sammie to be put to sleep, the pain just gets worse. It's been 22 days, but I feel like I did on that Wednesday (Jan 7th) when I had to make the most painful decision of my life.
I've been there when both of my parents passed. Both were very painful experiences, but I knew that my Dad was in such agony, I wanted him to be at rest. My Mom passed very suddenly at the end of this October. We weren't ready, but she had been telling us for the last 6 months that she expected to go shortly after her 90th, which would have been this March. The pain and loss were like nothing that I had experienced, but there was also a sense of relief that they were in a much better place.
Sammie was so young. I guess that I thought that we could somehow save her. I feel that there was something that I should or could of done, but didn't. I miss her so very much. It's like an open wound. I know that everyone has told me that the pain, while never really gone, does get softer. At this point, I don't see how.
07-02-2008 10:01 AM -- By: Christy, Critters.com memorial: Greta Abigail Memorial Hey could you guys please visit the memorial for "tucker"? He belongs to a little boy named carter ( I don't know him personally) but I feel really bad for him- Tucker was his pet rat that passed almost a month ago and he is very sad that no one has signed his guestbook, he feels like its because his pet was a rat and basically doesn't count as a pet-know what I mean? Hes kind of been overlooked because he is in "other pets". Thank-you so much I know this would cheer him up.
06-29-2008 8:52 PM -- By: Joe, Critters.com memorial: Rocco Diamond Phillips Memorial Please read 'The Dog's Prayer" I feel this will help people to get through the tough time of the loss of there beloved pet. Please visit Rocco's memorial.
05-13-2008 3:13 PM -- By: Bobby Foster, Critters.com memorial: Oscar Memorial For all my Freinds out there who are morning a loss, Hang Tough! This web sight has been the best thing for all of us that come here to have a peace of mind and to share our thoughts. Each one of us can contribute a word, a thought that will bring comfort to another. Man or women should not be afraid to express their feelings and to cry is as normal as anything else because we have loved. Pets bring countless hours of joy into our lives and when that is sundenly taken away we hurt so bad. Memories are something we can hold on to which in turn brings comfort to us as we live out our own life. I want to say thank you to those of you who said a kind word to me when I am down, To those who's memorials have touched my heart with the words wriiten. Peace to all for what ever the reason who has mad a difference to someone elses heart! People helping people is what it's all about.
Someone out there was touched today by something someone said, We may not ever know what a differnce we may have made to someone else but God does!
02-13-2008 12:41 AM -- By: Dana, Critters.com memorial: Sadie Lynn White Memorial I just wanted to take a moment and thank all of you for your support during this most difficult time. It somehow helps to know that others understand really understand what it is like to miss an animal so much. Sadie came into my life unexpectedly, and left unexpectedly. As a pet owner, you know cognitively that the day will someday come, but emotionally, I'm not sure there is any way to really be prepared. To have a sweet soul that loves you so unconditionally, that listens to your wildest dreams, that still loves you when you've had a bad day, and still, with all your flaws wants to do nothing but love you... whew! it's tough! There are moments when I walk through the house and still have that feeling that she's right on my heels, or that she's by my bed in the morning just waiting ever so patiently for me to get up, or laying by my chair as I work on the computer... those are the tough times.
I pray that everyone who has lost a loved pet find some comfort and peace in the wonderful memories. Some day, we will see our faithful companions again.
01-30-2008 4:16 PM -- By: Louise Tremblay, Pet's name: Amber Tremblay I was so sorry to hear about Miss Amber. I feel for you and will miss the good times we had with each other. I will have some comfort that you are in a better place now, looking down on us. Rest in peace sweet Amber.
01-05-2008 10:08 PM -- By: Sunday Poole, Pet's name: Sadie I had my 18 year old dog Sadie put to sleep Friday. I stayed through the whole thing and brought her home to put her in my Magic Garden with my other pets from the past. It was sad, terrible and I felt so guilty for putting her down. She was blind and had lost all her teeth and her face could never stay clean for more than a day because her tongue hung out of her mouth because of the no teeth. Because she couldn't see more than a shadow she was very afraid of everyone who came near her until you talked to her and she lost most of her hearing so we had to talk loud to her. She stayed in her bed 90% of the day. She had no quality of life anymore and I knew she needed to be put down a year ago and could not do it. It was selfish of me to keep her alive but she was my baby girl and I did not want to be without her. I know now I did the right thing. I know she is happy and not hurting any more. We loved her with all our heart. She was my #1 girlfriend and we would sneak off to the campground together.....just her and me and spend days by ourselves with just each other to keep each other company. I will miss that, I do miss her so much.
12-29-2007 3:32 PM -- By: Linda (Ceese's mom), Critters.com memorial: Ceese Memorial Almost 18 years of unconditional love. I miss her more than any cat I have ever had and I have had many. Her brother is at the vet today. He is not doing well and his time is limited. Feeling blue!
12-28-2007 7:55 PM -- By: Linda, Critters.com memorial: Ceese Memorial I expected to be adjusting after 2 weeks, instead I feel worse. I wonder if part of it is knowing I am about to lose another 17+ yr companion.
09-27-2007 2:44 AM -- By: Joanne, Critters.com memorial: Nikita Memorial A very good friend of my just recently called me about her dog Watusi who was 13 years and was diagnosed with cancer in the bone. At first it was hard and I felt the waves of emotion come back like a vengence but I knew she had turned to me because I understood and she needed my advice as well as support. The vet had given them an option of removing Watusi's bottom jaw to try to slow the process. My friend was torn because though she wanted to hang on to her beloved Catahoula dog as long as possible she knew that this would not be a quality of life that Watusi would enjoy and there was no guarantees that it would slow the cancer. She remembered me telling her before Nikita died, how I thought that the emergency surgery that was performed on her 6 months earlier when her stomach flipped, increased the risk of her cancer as she had been a relatively healthy dog even for 13 years of age before that. She was concerned that this would be the same for her dog and wanted my input. It was hard enough making the decision to put Kita through another surgery when we found out she had a tumor but to tell my friend to have her dogs bottom jaw removed was unthinkable. Instead of sharing that direct viewpoint, I asked her some hard questions and made her think about all the pros and cons of doing this surgery. By the end she had made her decision to just let Watusi live out the remainder of her days with both jaws and with as pain free as possible. I validated her decision and told her all the things I had done over the years to preserve memories of my Kita and all the regrets I had after she was gone. She took it to heart and went to work to preserve those memories and even doing the things I wished I had done. Watusi was given the best blended food a dog could ask for up until the day they called the vet to come to their home and sent their daughters to grandma's. They had made two stepping stones with her paw prints, one to stay with her on her favorite spot on their property where she was buried and one to take with them if they should ever move. They took more photos on her good days and wrote down cherished memories so it would enlighted them when she was gone. They made the most of those final days and for this I am grateful to have been a part of for as I shared my grief, my sorry and my regrets, she valued everything I told her and has no regrets and instead saw it all through as planned. What a beautiful sentiment to cherish the ones we love and to preserve those memories exactly how they would want us to. Reliving the pain was hard at the time but today I'm grateful that I was there and could be of help to my friend, her family and most of all to Watusi. May you rest in your favorite spot forever. Joanne
07-29-2007 11:59 PM -- By: Tracie, Critters.com memorial: Lil Joe Memorial After I lost my Lil Joe, my closet friend at work had to put her baby to sleep on Valentines Day, it was terribly hard on her and hard on me because I had just barely lost my Lil Joe, but You have to be there for them and just like she was there for me during that horrible 3 weeks and to this day. We know that we can count on each other, because they are not just animals they are part of the FAMILY. So my best advice is just to be there and to let them know that they can count on you any time of the day 24/7 because as we all know it does help to talk to someone that cares.
