Our Friends & Clients who have now Crossed the Rainbow Bridge
We include this page as a loving tribute to honour our beautiful gentle 4-legged client friends and family who have crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. Our sincerest condolences to their owners who love and miss them so much. We know and understand your pain
The sad fact is that animal lives are shorter than human lives. According to one 6 year old boy, here's the reason ....."People are born so that they can learn how to live a good life -- like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right? Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don't have to stay as long."
Whenever a pet passes, it is important to honour the grieving process. The loss of a pet can release pent-up emotional pain and distress otherwise kept contained, such as the loss of a job or significant other. Animals, even in their passing help us by assisting in the expression and release of emotion and guilt. The unconditional love we learn from animals is a tangible healing tool that can help us gain acceptance and make their transitional time a little easier
Fred Sept 11, 2010 missed sadly by Jan Clare and all your furry friends Oakville Ontario
"I know he didn't want to leave me, but I told him I'd be okay and that all of the Angels were there to help and all of the Clare pets. He is now free to play and romp with all of his friends. Thanks to everyone who loved him so much. Don't forget to hug your pets every day, tell them you love them and that you're coming back home." Jan
Angel Sept 12, 2010 always missed by Sam and Lori Fonthill Ontario
"He was a wonderful gift to us and definitely lived up to his name 'Angel' ... He looked at me that first time with such startled recognition, as though he already knew me and had been waiting for me to arrive to take him home. We were honoured and blessed that he chose us as his family ... Such a conscious and aware kitten who was so very thoughtful and loving of all around him, quick to make friends with the lonely, a happy jokester doing everything he could to make you laugh ... falling in the toilet, playing ninja cat, using the garbage can as a hamster wheel. He made us feel very loved and very important to him. He was always posing for funny pictures ... We call this one 'Pasta Cataloni' " Lori
Squirty Oct 1, 2010 sadly missed by Jan Clare and all your furry friends Oakville Ontario
"When I went to see Squirt he was the last kitten left and had been sleeping in a big wing chair facing the other way. The gal went over and picked him up and put him on the floor so I could see him. I took one look at him and said "Oh, look at you, you little squirt." and that's how he got his name. He passed away in my arms on Saturday evening. If there's such a thing I think he died of a broken heart as he'd lost Holly, Zena, Prince and Fred all in the last short time. He went down very quickly in the last month. Now he's together with all of his pals again. Once again, I'm honoured that Squirt gave me such a loving home for the last 18 years. I was thrilled to be his Mom." Jan
Tweede Nov 1, 2010 best friend and companion for 23 years, missed every day by Lori D'Ascenzo Fonthill Ontario
"I said farewell to my best friend and partner of 23 years yesterday. Sorrow seems so inadequate to convey the ending of that great and noble spirit. Tweede was my first thought every morning and my last thought every night for as long as I can remember. He filled my life with love and meaning. Was my best teacher and often my greatest challenge. Knew me better than anyone ..... Saying goodbye was the hardest and saddest thing I have ever done" Lori
"his legacy of unconditional love, commitment, strength of spirit and gentle wisdom remains forever...we weep for the loss of his presence, but I feel his joy and freedom and he is filled with peace...always loved, never forgotten ...enjoy your new wings Tweede XXXOOOO" Wendy
Sadie March 5, 2012 loved and missed by Jan and your furry family Oakville Ontario
"Sadie passed away this morning at home with me here at the tender age of 15 1/2. I'd moved my bed down to the living room as both she and Harry were unable to make it up the stairs anymore. Last night I lay on the floor holding her for the longest time. I put a blanket over both of us so she wouldn't be cold. Her head was on my arm and I was patting her gently telling her Mom and Dad and all of our pets were waiting for her and would help her cross the Rainbow Bridge if that's what she needed to do. I asked her to give me a sign that she'd been happy she came here and if I'd given her a good home and all the love she needed. She raised her head and gave me a little gentle kiss on the cheek.
One of my little kitties took one of their green cat toys and dropped it at Sadie's paws this morning so I guess Harry, Jack and I won't be the only ones who will miss Sadie. Tell your pets every time you go out that you're coming back and give them hugs and tell them you love them every day." Jan
Harry May 7, 2012 loved and missed by Jan and Jack Oakville Ontario
"My beautiful 12 1/2 year old Harry passed away in my arms this morning about 2:30 a.m. I was the last thing he saw and he knew how much he was loved, adored and cared for. He was an amazing doggie with a great sense of humour. I like to think he got that from me...
I'm honoured again that he came to MY house and ended up being MY dog. I was happy to be his forever Mom.
Hug your pets every day and tell them how much you love them and when you go out, be sure to tell them you're coming right back. When they come to greet you in any way, shape or form, be honoured that they came to spend time with you instead of being too busy just at that moment. They just want you to acknowledge them." Jan
Virgil June 6, 2012 best friend and companion of Ellie Lasalle Quebec
Sadly passed from cancer. Virgil wisely opened the door for Ellie to begin her personal journey back to a life with hope and meaning
Bachelor July 29, 2012 champion standardbred racehorse of Tracy and Geoff Australia
"We loved him so much. He was the greatest joy I have ever had. I just cannot believe he is gone like this. He was so much a part of my world. In fact he was my world." Tracy

Chopin 2015 beloved family pet of Brenda Paul St Catharines Ontario
"I will always treasure my incredible cat, Chopin, who is now at the Rainbow Bridge with my mother.
