In loving memory of my beautiful Cuddles. You came into our family when you reached your paw out to us at the Hinton SPCA in 1998. You were the best friend anyone could ask for. I will never forget you and thank you for being there for me for the last 16 1/2 years. RIP <3 Love mom, Jordon and Allison xoox



I'M STILL HERE: Friend, please don’t mourn for me I’m still here, though you don’t see. I’m right by your side each night and day and within your heart I long to stay. My body is gone but I’m always near. I’m everything you feel, see or hear. My spirit is free, but I’ll never depart as long as you keep me alive in your heart. I’ll never wander out of your sight- I’m the brightest star on a summer’s night. I’ll never be beyond your reach- I’m the warm moist sand when you’re at the beach. I’m the colorful leaves when fall comes around and the pure white snow that blankets the ground.I’m the beautiful flowers of which you’re so fond, The clear cool water in a quiet pond. I’m the first bright blossom you’ll see in the spring, The first warm raindrop that April will bring. I’m the first ray of light when the sun starts to shine, and you’ll see that the face in the moon shine is mine. When you start thinking there’s no one to love you, you can talk to through the Lord up above you. I’ll whisper my answer through the leaves on the trees, and you’ll feel my presence in the soft summer breeze. I’m the hot salty tears that flow when you weep and the beautiful dreams that come while you sleep. I’m the smile you see on a baby’s face. Just look for me friend, I’m every place! ~Author Unknown

In Loving memory of Dakota (Cody) Pawa who passed away on May 1st 2011 in Edmonton, Alberta. A loving, gentle giant, Cody was a female Alaskan Malamute with a beautiful black and white coat with cream highlights. She did not cause me any fuss or extraordinary effort to have her by my side for 11 years. A purebred I acquired at age 5, she was truly a gorgeous animal. All things come to pass and after a stroke three weeks ago, she laboured along; but her time had come. She will join our first siberian husky Nikita, 9 years old at time of passing; and our two siamese cats 16 years and 21 years and passed on (Mickey and Minnie our children's pets), their ashes in urns and oka boxes in a quiet place in our home.



In loving memory of my 17-year old 'little love', Spuds, who passed away on August 13, 2010.  I will be forever thankful for the years we lived and loved each other.  I love you so much, my sweetheart.  See you on the other side. ♥♥♥



We originally bought Bailey so his adopted brother Snowy could have someone to play with and keep company. As the years went by , they became the very best of friends , acually more like brothers.They were always there for each other. We loved our Bailey to pieces, but after about 8 1/2 yrs Bailey became very sick with epilepsy and then his kidneys started to shut down. For a little puppy who lived through his tummy he was slowly starving as he couldn't keep any food down and he was skin and bone,so on Oct.20th at 12:15pm Bailey went to that special place where all loved pets go to wait for mom and dad so they can be together again.
We will miss our little boy until we can all be together again.



Riley was an awesome kitten. he played fetch and loved to be around people. his bright attitude brought joy to many people in his path. he was only 6 months old when I had to put him down as he had broken his hip by playing and nothing could slow him down. he will always be missed and never forgotten but i know he is in a better place now without pain. we love you Riley.



Casper was about 8 weeks old when we found her. We did not know she was near death until we came home one day and we had to stomp on the floor for her to know we were home. She was 17 years old. I miss her with all my heart, but I know we did the right thing. She was in pain.



Dieter came into our lives when he was 8 weeks old, he was the dog I had always dreamed of having since I was a little girl. He grew up so fast into such a beautiful dog, both inside and out. He was very active and loved going for runs with my husband. But at the same time he enjoyed curling up on the couch with me for a good petting. He also made the house seem so safe when my husband was away, which was quite often. He had his first knee surgery in March 2003 for a torn ACL and three years later his other ACL needed to be replaced in April 2006. I'll never know how much pain he was in, he was a very strong dog both mentally & physically.

Our little soldier so brave and strong, in your mind you could do no wrong
But your days were no longer full of fun, and this was a battle that could not be won
So we'll raise our glass to you each day, and in our hearts you'll always stay

We miss you.....
Love Always, the Schmidts


Misty came to live with me in her twilight years at the ripe old age of 11½ , She is the first dog I ever had soul guardian ship of, what a great way to start. Although she lost 12 of her remaining 14 teeth in the first two weeks I had her she seemed to blossom after that, her heart mummer went away and her personality came out. She was a tough little dog, snapping at pretty much any size of dog that got in her face too much. There were days she would make me forget her age, running around like a puppy in spite of her seizures. She was relaxed and always made me smile. She convinced me that Poodles are the Best type of dog... and I convinced her to be a proud poodle at the same time. She was timid when she arrived, but within weeks her tail came out from between her legs and she learned to love people and socializing even with other dogs. She is the only dog my father has every truly liked. He would ask when I would arrive at my parent's home, "where's the little dog?" before even saying hello to me. I couldn't have asked for a better start into the dog world. She truly was an angel to me and for that I will always be thankful. I would like to thank NASAP for trusting her to my care and for the Support they gave her as well. NASAP are truly angels in the help they give animals in need. The photo attached is one of my favorites... "Misty with her face in the breeze." She was a regal little one.


Our Cat Tigger was brought into our home as a stray, we took her in. I wasn't even born when she came into our lives, the best thing that's ever happened to me and my family. She was only a kitten when we got her, we brought her into our home in 1984, she was my best friend. All pets demand little, they give unconditional acceptance and reassurance, and offer immediate consistent feedback, I miss her so much, she was my best friend as do all of you who have lost a pet. They are part of family triangles, absorbing or defusing anger, tension, and even love that's to strong for other family members to direct toward each other. When I turned 8 years old I was allowed to get a kitten, and Tig took him in as if it were her own. I can tell he misses her, Tigger was like a mother to him. Tigger passed away 4 months ago, I know I wasn't even born and now I'm 16 years old. She was 19 years old, she could have lived a bit longer but her kidney's were failing and everything she ate didn't make her gain weight. Her usual weight was about 14 pounds and it suddenly dropped to 9 pounds, she was starving herself, she also drank water a lot, as you can see here, she's in the sink, lying in a bit of left over water... we didn't like what was happening to her so we decided to put her down on April 30th of 2004. The good news is we just adopted a kitten and we go and pick him up tomorrow, Charlie will be happy now, he's a big softy!!

You will always be remembered and never forgotten Tigger, I love u so much.

I'll keep saying goodnight to you for the rest of my life, until we're together again.


Peace be with you my friend,
Samantha Carr



Little Sherman was in our care for a mere 24 hours but he left a huge imprint on everyone who met him. Sherman was surrendered to us at 7 weeks of age because he couldn't walk and was therefore, unadoptable.

NASAP took him to the vet for x-rays where it was discovered he was born without hips and would never be able to walk or support his weight as he grew older. It was also determined that he was behind in his mental development and his jaw and front legs were not quite correct. If he had lived he would no doubt have had many medical problems as he continued to grow. Despite his troubles little Sherman was determined to get around and managed to drag himself all over the place with his front legs; as a result he had wounds on his back feet, toes and hips where they were rubbed raw from dragging himself across the cement and other types of flooring. It was difficult to watch so I would carry him as much as possible. This sweet little fellow was such a joy to know in the short period he was with us and although it was right the thing to do,  it still broke my heart to say goodbye to such a precious little life. Sherman's ashes are now buried under the willow tree in our yard where we often stop to remember his large personality and spirit. God bless, wee Sherman, have fun in doggie heaven where you are free of pain and joyously running wherever you go. Follow your nose and your heart... The Clarke Family


To this House She came in February 1998

To this House She has departed August 2004

She came into My life as a stray, 5 months after My Mother was buried.

In My Mind, She was led to watch over Me and I Her, By My Mothers Soul

When She Came to Me, She was at least 4 years old

She was the most Loving, Compassionate Being God ever set upon this earth and into My care

She was My inspiration in Life, She was My Friend and My Companion

Up until this last month, She was with Me always, showing and giving Her undying Love


She is MY "Bear", a name I gave to Her.


She will live for eternity in My Heart and She will be waiting for Me I have no doubt when it is MY time to join Her and My Mother and Father


She succumbed to "Auto-Immune Hemolytic Anemia", a blood deficiency identified in female K9's


She is at Peace now, and in Gods Heaven, She romps and plays with Her Brother Buster, Our Family Cat, who recently passed away due to Old Age


Together they are buried side by side in our yard of this "Their House"


Always Remembered, Never Forgotten


My Friend, My Companion, My Bear


God Rest your soul Bear, and Peace Be with you.

Ralph and Brenda Nelson


In memory of my wonderful pony Cherry Blossom... after 20 wonderful years together the hardest thing I have ever had to do was say goodbye to you, every time I hear the thunder roll across the sky I will look up and think of you galloping across the sky free of pain forever, god bless Blossom... Love Emma x


A Poem For Charlie

 My little hamster was oh so cute!
He loved to eat his veggies and fruit

He was one of my very best friends
And I know he's with me to the end...

 He died of old age, cremated then
Now he's buried in our garden

And though he's something I can not see
I know he will always be with me.
