Memories of Buttons
Though our hearts are heavy with grief and we miss you terribly, we will celebrate the wonderful life you had with us for 14 and a half years. We'll remember how we fell in love with you from the first moment we laid eyes on you - just a little ball of white fur and kisses, cute as a "button" - jumping up to greet us in your little pen, while your sisters slept, and giving us kisses. You had the best personality of any dog and everyone who met you fell in love with you.

You were our "perpetual puppy," always playful and feisty, and everyone thought you were still a puppy, even recently! You had that big dog personality inside a small dog body, as well as being part cat. Remember how you loved to lie in the warm sun by the window or over the heating vents? You would perch precariously upon the back of the couch, your round little body not as graceful as a cat's but you didn't seem to realize that! Besides being a loving little doggie who gave kisses when we said, "give kisses," you also had that superior-than-thou attitude just like a cat - and we felt more like your servants than your masters! But you were, above all, a huge part of our family and it left a huge hole in our hearts when we had to say good-bye to you.

You were always such a good little girl - even when you were 'naughty' - you gave us unlimited affection and unconditional love, and joy, throughout your little life. We will never forget you, Buttons, but will hold you close to our hearts and cherish our memories of you forevermore. We love you & miss you, my little sweetheart - you'll always be mommy's little baby girl! xoxoxox

Here is a beautiful poem Steve sent us, from you in Heaven:

Letter From Your Pet in Heaven

To my dearest family,
some things I'd like to say.
But first of all, to let you know,
that I arrived okay.

I'm writing this from the Bridge.
Here I dwell with God above.
Here there's no more tears of sadness.
Here is just eternal love.

Please do not be unhappy
just because I'm out of sight.
Remember that I am with you
every morning, noon and night.

That day I had to leave you
when my life on earth was through,
God picked me up and hugged me,
and He said, "I welcome you.

It's good to have you back again;
you were missed while you were gone.
As for your dearest family,
They'll be here later on."

God gave me a list of things,
that he wished for me to do.
And foremost on the list,
was to watch and care for you.

And when you lie in bed at night,
the day's chores put to flight,
God and I are closest to you . . .
in the middle of the night.

When you think of my life on earth,
and all those loving years,
because you are only human,
they are bound to bring you tears.

But do not be afraid to cry:
it does relieve the pain.
Remember there would be no flowers,
unless there was some rain.

I wish that I could tell you
all that God has planned.
If I were to tell you,
you wouldn't understand.

But one thing is for certain,
though my life on earth is o'er.
I'm closer to you now,
than I ever was before.

There are rocky roads ahead of you
and many hills to climb;
But together we can do it
by taking one day at a time.

It was always my philosophy
and I'd like it for you too;
That as you give unto the world,
the world will give to you.

If you can help somebody
who's in sorrow and pain;
Then you can say to God at night . . .
"My day was not in vain."

And now I am contented . . .
that my life was worthwhile.
Knowing as I passed along
I made somebody smile.

God says: "If you meet somebody
who is sad and feeling low;
Just lend a hand to pick him up,
as on your way you go.

When you're walking down the street
with me on your mind;
I'm walking in your footsteps
only half a step behind."

"And when it's time for you to go . . .
from that body to be free.
Remember you're not going . . .
you're coming here to me."
