Frisco was the best dog ever. He was a funny retriever because he never liked to retrieve! He never gave kisses. He was very independent, but he loved to bury his head against you. He loved to get his picture taken. He always smiled for the camera. He loved going to have his picture taken with Santa Claus. We were going to go to see Santa on Sunday, but he passed away on Saturday. My heart breaks. I love you so much Frisco. You will always be in my heart. You gave me 14 1/2 wonderful years. I am blessed to have had you in my life.|

I picked up your ashes today. I'm so glad you're home. The vet's office gave me an impression of your paw. It's beautiful. Mommy misses you so much. I love you.

I still remember the first time I saw you. Carolyn and I bought you for dad who was suffering from Alzheimer's. Carolyn bought you on a Monday after I left for a business trip. I worked until midnight Thursday night so that I could drive home from New York to meet you. When I opened the front door and took one look at you, my heart melted. You came to me and we never parted.
November 18, 2010
I keep waking up during the night expecting to let you out. I miss you so much. I remember how you were always afraid of houseflies. You spent a lot of time in the bathtub hiding out. You were so silly. You always had a smile on your face. You never let us know when you were in pain. I hope you weren't in pain often. I love you. Always. You allowed me to be a mommy.

You are my best friend. You helped me through so much. When I moved into the house, you were with me so I wasn't alone. I shared many tears with you. When dad died, you were there for me. I remember the first night in the house. I cried because I was afraid. You stayed right by my side. I remember every month that I paid the mortgage I would turn to you and say "we get to stay another month". The most important thing to me was that you were cared for. I would've starved to make sure that you had food. Not that you ate much. You were such a skinny puppy. You loved to go for walks. You were so excited when you heard the word "walk"! Other words that you loved: leash, lunch and treat. I love you my Frisc. You are my little baby. I miss you.

I can't believe you have been gone for an entire week already. I keep looking for you. I do hope that you are at peace. I hope you know that mommy did everything she could for you. The seizure was so long, I knew you would never be right again and that would've made you sad if you couldn't do your favorite things. Every time I go into the kitchen, I expect you to be right behind me. I love you. I miss you.

Carolyn was over last night and we were remembering so many good times that we shared with you. You loved getting into costume. I think your favorite was the ladybug costume. I remember the day after Halloween you went downstairs and barked at the costume! You were such a happy puppy. I loved your soft and fuzzy head. I love you Frisco.
November 22, 2010
I'm getting ready to start a training class. I will miss you laying at the door of the office napping. Whenever I would start to feel stressed, I would look over at you and see that soft and fuzzy face and the stress would leave me. You loved to listen to music. Frank Sinatra, Christian music. I know you were very spiritual because you seemed to be meditating to the music. I loved watching your face. I miss you. I love you.
November 23, 2010
I'm very lonely without you. Hunter, Mallory, and Sammy stopped by last night. They were all sad that you are no longer here. Everyone misses you. You were the neighborhood pet. I hope you are running free at the Rainbow Bridge.
November 24, 2010
I miss you Frisco. It's hard to walk down the aisle in the grocery store with the treats for you. I keep wanting to buy you something. Every time I go into the kitchen I expect you to follow me. I listen for your jingling collar. You were a great friend. I love you.
November 25, 2010
Happy Thanksgiving Frisco. I am so thankful to have had you in my life for 14 1/2 wonderful years. While I am sad that you are gone, I am grateful for the memories we shared. You were a wonderful friend. I love you.
November 27, 2010
I can't believe you've been gone for two weeks. I can still hear you stretching and yawning. The house is empty without you. I hope you are enjoying your time at the Rainbow Bridge.
November 30, 2010
I got my cross in the mail that will carry some of your ashes so I can keep you close to my heart. The hardest thing I have ever had to do is open your ashes. I'm so sad that you are gone. I miss you so much. I miss that soft and fuzzy head. You were the best. I love you.
December 1, 2010
It's so sad here without you. You were such a joy. You made me smile when I was down. You were always faithful, loyal and loving. You were my pooky puppy. I loved opening the front door to your smiling face. You were the best. I love you.

Hi baby. Mommy was in the hospital for a few days. They're not sure what's wrong. I felt comforted knowing I have you as my little furry angel looking out for me. I pick up your brother on Sunday. I need to be well for him. I miss you. I love you.
December 10, 2010
Two days until I pick up your brother. I know you are my little angel. I miss you so much. Today I found a piece of your fur. I wish you were still here. I love you.
December 11, 2010
I was wondering if you met Nanny today at the Rainbow Bridge. She left us this morning. She was so upset that you left us, that's all she would ever talk about. I have a feeling that's why you left, so that you could be there for her. She loved you very much. I hope you are enjoying happiness there and that she's no longer worried about you getting fur on her! I pick up your brother tomorrow. I was so blessed to have you in my life. I know I will be blessed by your brother Faithful. I love you. I miss you.
December 14, 2010
Hi my Frisco. Your brother is here. He's great. You would love him. He's very afraid of all the noises because he came from a farm area. I know you will guide him in your spirit. I will always miss you. I love you.
December 20, 2010
Faithful left a dingo bone in the middle of your bed on Friday. It's still there. I think he was giving you a gift. I am so sad that you won't be here this Christmas. It won't be the same. I love you so much. I miss you. I think you and Faithful would have gotten along really well. I know you are guiding him. Thank you. I love you.
December 24, 2010
I hope you are having a joyous Christmas at the Rainbow Bridge. Mommy misses you so much. Sometimes I just can't believe you are gone. I want you to know that I love you very much and I always will. You are amazing. I miss your love. I love you so much. Merry Christmas my dear Frisco.
December 25, 2010
Merry Christmas Baby. I miss you. I love you.
December 31, 2010 - January 1, 2011
Happy New Year baby. I miss you. I'm sad without you. I love you. The new year will be so different without you.
January 7, 2011
Hi baby. I miss you so much. Having your brother here has really taught me what you were going through. I didn't realize how much of your hearing was gone and how long it had been since I heard you bark. I also didn't realize how much of your appetite you lost. I'm sorry. You were such a good boy. I know your spirit is guiding Faithful. He has learned so much in four weeks. I can tell that he had picked up your scent and you are leading him. We start training next week. The 14 1/2 years I had with you went so fast. I miss you. I love you. I hope you are enjoying your new friends at the Rainbow Bridge.
January 14, 2011
I can't believe you have been gone for two months. I still cry like it was yesterday. I miss you so much. Faithful is getting comfortable here. He seems to know your favorite spots and they are quickly becoming his favorite spots too. I'm sure he feels your spirit. I hope you have made many friends at the Rainbow Bridge. I love you.
January 30, 2011
Hi baby. I miss you. I know your spirit is guiding Faithful. He's doing very well in training. You were so funny when we went to training. You never liked to listen. You had your own mind. This winter has been very bad with snow and ice. You would've had such difficulty getting around. I picture you romping through green fields at the Rainbow Bridge. You were such a friendly, happy dog. Faithful isn't as trusting as you, with good reason I suppose. I love you. I know I'll see you again someday.
February 12, 2011
I still cry for you. I miss you so much. My heart aches for you. You were such a joy to me. I hope you are at peace and that I did what was right for you. I look at your pictures and can't believe you are gone. I hope you are watching out for us. I know we will be together again someday.
March 20, 2011
Happy Birthday baby. The world became a better place when you entered this world 15 years ago. It's still so hard for me to accept that you are gone. I love you so much. I know that I am very fortunate to have had your love for so long. Enjoy your special day at the Rainbow Bridge. I love you.
April 16, 2011
I can't believe you have been gone for five months. I saw your picture the other day and cried. I miss you so much. Faithful graduated his second class this week. You and he would get along well. I love you my little baby.
April 23, 2011
Happy Easter my little funny bunny. I love you.
May 8, 2011
I just wanted to let you know what an honor and privilege it was to be your mommy. I miss you on this Mother's Day. I love you.
May 13, 2011
Hi Sweetie. I can't believe it's been six months that you are gone. My heart is still breaking. I miss you so much. You would love your brother. He is definitely following your lead. I love you. I hope you are happy at the Rainbow Bridge.
June 13, 2011
I can't believe seven months have passed. I hope you get to glimpse down on us and see that we are ok. Your brother is doing very well. He passed his Canine Good Citizen test with flying colors. We still miss you very much. I hope the Rainbow Bridge is a wonderful, beautiful place and that you are happy there. I still find it hard to believe that you are gone. I love you very much.
November 13, 2011
I can't believe it's been a year. I miss you so much. I still cry for you. I love you so much. I hope you are at peace and having fun with the other puppies. Mommy loves you. Until we meet again.
June 14, 2012
Hi baby. I hope you are enjoying your time at the Rainbow Bridge. I think about you every day. I love you. I miss you. You have a great brother. I'm grateful.
November 12, 2012
I can't believe that tomorrow will be two years. I look at your pictures and still can't believe you're gone. Faithful is a great dog too. He is so much like you, but very much unique like you. He hates getting baths, and you loved getting baths. He had a rough beginning so he's very afraid where you had no fear. I miss taking you to get your picture with Santa. I hope you are enjoying your time at the Rainbow Bridge. Mommy missed you.
November 13, 2016
I still miss you after all this time. I love how you loved everyone. I hope you are enjoying your friends at the rainbow bridge. I love you and always will.
October 24, 2017
Hi my sweet puppy. I miss you. Your brother, Faithful, is a very good boy. I know that he felt welcome here because he knew you had lived here. You were so sweet. Everyone loved you. Until we meet again, I love you.
November 13, 2017
I love you Frisco. I know that your spirit has guided Faithful. We know you are still here in spirit. Enjoy your time at the Rainbow Bridge. I miss you.
