DEATH LEAVES A HEARTACHE NO ONE CAN HEAL.......|
LOVE LEAVES A MEMORY NO ONE CAN STEAL.
March 6, 2001 - February 28, 2012
Zoe came to live with us 11 years ago at age 8 weeks. We were thrilled with her. She was a buddy for our Pud Pud. They were inseperable.
On October 10, 2011 we got the devastating diagnosis that Zoe had osteosarcoma. We started greiving then. We took great care of our angel and made her as comfortable as possible. Yesterday, February 28, was one of our daughter's and one of our other dog's birthdays. We had to make the painful decision to end Zoe's pain and suffering. We realized that we had been very selfish. We kept her with us longer than we should have. She left this world very peacefully at 2:15 pm in her Dad's trembling arms.
I had so many names for Zoe. She was Zoe Ann, Zoe Z, the Queen Z, Girl Z, just plain Z, and Curly Sue because her hair on her back would curl up in the rain!
When she was a puppy the kids would call her "Satan" because she would grab the back of their jeans or pants at the ankle and never let go. That was her one and only annoying habit. Everything else about her was terrific.
My husband and I are having a rough time with this. We lost a member of our family. This is a heartache that is going to be around for quite a while.
Even though she had a terminal disease, we did our best to take the best care of our girl. We miss her terribly. I would give anything to just be able to hug and kiss her again.
Our house is never going to be the same even though we have 3 other dogs. There is an emptiness and sadness that is almost unbearable.
We look forward to the time we can meet and all be together again. Thank you for the memories.
Love, Daddy, Mum, Melani, Randi, Erin, Ziggy, Ozzie, Roxie, and all the family
WE LOST A TREASURED FRIEND TODAY
THE BIG DOG WHO USED TO LAY
HER GENTLE HEAR UPON MY KNEE
AND SHARED HER SILENT THOUGHTS WITH ME.
SHE'LL COME NO LONGER TO MY CALL
RETRIEVE NO MORE HER FAVORITE BALL
A VOICE FAR GREATER THAN MY OWN
HAS CALLED HER TO HER GOLDEN HOME.
ALTHOUGH MY EYES ARE FILLED WITH TEARS
I THANK HIM FOR THE HAPPY YEARS
HE LET HER SPEND DOWN HERE WITH ME
AND FOR HER LOVE AND LOYALTY.
WHEN IT IS TIME FOR ME TO GO
AND JOIN HER THIS MUCH I KNOW
I SHALL NOT FEAR THE TRANSIENT DARK
FOR SHE WILL GREET ME WITH A BARK.

Good morning Zoe. You are the first thought in the morning and the last thought at night. We miss you so much. The only comfort in this whole situation
is the fact that you are pain-free and happy now. Rest in peace Z.
March 2, 2012
Good morning Love. I hope you are adjusting well. I have received so many well wishes for you. It is very comforting to know what kind of company you are in. The best !! We think about you 24/7.
March 3, 2012
Good morning Angel. I pray you are doing better up there than we are down here. Missing you terribly.
March 6, 2012
HAPPY BIRTHDAY ZOE! It has been one week ago today since you left us. It is also your 11th birthday. I wasn't sure I was doing the right thing when I had your cake along with Mel's and Ozzie's last Tuesday on their birthdays and your last day with us. Now I know I did do the right thing because I know you really enjoyed that cake as I fed you all FIVE pieces. Our gift to you this year was to relieve you of all your pain. I'm sure Charly & Pud have found you and I know they will take care of you. I look forward to the time when we are all reunited. We miss you more than you can imagine. We love all of you so much.
Love, Dad & Mum
March 7, 2012
Hi Girl. We brought your ashes home today. The urn is absolutely beautiful. It is so good to have you home where you belong. I miss you Z.
March 9, 2012
Hello my baby. I hope everything is going well with you. I'm sure Charly and Pud have made you feel right at home. Daddy, Mel and I went to the memorial service at Animal Friends last night. It was very emotional but I think it helped us with our grief. We love you so much. I have completed your pics. I hope you like them.
March 20, 2012
Morning Zo. I'm just thinking about you. (all the time)

June 3, 2012
Hi Z Love ya! Mum
June 12, 2012
Oh Z, what can I say. It has only been 4 1/2 months since you went to the Bridge. In one way it seems like just yesterday, and then again, it seems like an eternity since I was able to touch you. We still ache over you. I do not regret ending your misery, in fact in hindsight, I feel we were very selfish
in keeping you with us as long as we did. We think about you all the time.
Love and miss you very much, Mum
July 20, 2012
Hi Z. Today is Pud's 5th anniversary at the Rainbow Bridge. Cannot believe it has been that long. We miss you all so much. We are so looking forward to the time we can all be together again.
Love you so much, Mum

November 12, 2012
Oh Z. I am not sure how I am going to be able to handle the holidays without you. I remember last year saying if you can just make it through the holidays I will be happy. You did and you made it until Mel's and Ozzie's birthday. I miss you sooooooooooo much.
November 22, 2012
HAPPY THANKSGIVING ANGEL !!!
December 6, 2012
Oh Z. What can I say. I knew last Christmas was going to be your last with us. You were diagnosed with your cancer in October and all I wanted was for you to make it until Christmas. And you did. You hung on until Feb. 28. I miss you more than you can imagine. I still have not taken your pic off of
the desktop on the comp. I cannot bring myself to do it. It is actually a pic of you with your presents from last year. I think about you all the time Zoe. I hope you you like the Christmas decorations I put up for you.
Love and miss you very very much, Mum
December 24, 2012

We talk to you everyday as if you were still here with us. It's good to know you are having Christmas with Pud and Charly. You are in great company.
I love you and miss you.

January 23, 2013
Hi Z. It is unbelievable that you will be gone a year next month. Time goes by so quickly. I still have your pic on the computer desk top. That has always been for current events in the family, but since Feb. 28, 2012, I have not been able to change it. I am not sure how much longer I will have to keep it on there. It doesn't matter though. However long it takes, that is how it will be. I still talk to you as if you were here. I quess you really are. I miss you soooooooooooooooooo much.
February 6, 2013

This is an extremely tough holiday this year. Not only do we miss you all so much especially during the holidays, but Ziggy just joined you in June. Now Ozzie is very sick and is going to be leaving us soon.
He will not be here for Christmas. You loved your brother Ozzie and were buddies. We love you all more than you can imagine.
