I picked Lila out of a litter at my parent's house and she moved in with my husband and I. She was sassy and cute right away. She used to sleep on the end of our bed. Her favorite toy was a little chubacha that she'd toss up in the air and catch. She'd carry it all over the house. She was always sitting on her cat perch when my husband left for work in the morning and there to greet me when I got home. She was only around for 2 and a half years but she touched our lives so much in that time. We will miss our first fur baby. Forever in our hearts.
Allie loved the simple things in life...squirrels, ice cubes, going bye-bye, and eating! She gave so much love to our family...we can only hope she felt the love we returned to her.
She lived the last two years fighting her failing heart...but somehow she never seemed to live like she was sick. She still chased her squirrels and she still wanted to go on road trips. With the help of Blue Springs Animal Hospital and many medications, we got to spend these last two years counting each day as a blessing.
When the time came that her precious heart could no longer keep up with the rest of her body, it broke our hearts to let her go. We promised her we would never let her suffer to keep her here with us, and we had to keep that promise.
There will never be another dog quite like her...for she is forever irreplaceable.
Ripley was definitely not a cuddle bug lap dog. I called her my "cat". She was, however, my constant, loyal and loving girl. Shortly after I got her she was diagnosed with cancer. Thanks to Dr. Bradley she was allowed to live a long, happy life. I will always be grateful. I am also grateful and thankful for everyone at the BSAH and the care and compassion they show. I will miss my "cat" Ripley. But I know she's in a better place.
Olive was a loving and sweet kitty to us. She was not fond of strangers and never warmed up to people, no matter how long they were at our house. Olive loved to have her tummy rubbed and had her favorite places to go stretch out to wait for the attention. She loved chasing paper balls and playing with soft toys; we had them all over the house all the time. She could jump vertical if something startled her or if she was catching a ball. Sometimes she had us rolling on the floor with laughter as she was very skittish when something was new or different in the house. She enjoyed eating a little bit of lettuce every day with her food. I miss her constant companionship and presence and expect her to come around the corner at any moment. Her silky soft fur and beautiful green eyes will be missed.
Sasha was super intelligent, eager to please, loved people and especially loved to work. She was a Trained Search and Rescue dog and best companion I could ever have wanted. She traveled with us and everywhere we went people commented how sweet and beautiful she was. We will miss her forever.
Rambo was the best dog- so happy, loving, tender, and intuitive. He was truly the definition of "Gentle Giant". Rambo was only with us a short time but will be in our hearts forever.
Winslow was full of life and joy and goofy playfulness that kept us laughing. He gave the best huge hugs and always let us know how much he loved us. He trusted us implicitly despite his fears and proved that it is more than possible to fight through fear and anxiety and learn how good the world can be. Even though he fought physical ailments through much of his life, he was happy and lived life the way we all should, enjoying every day to its fullest.
Pugly was the most adorable Pug in the world and I will miss her forever.

ZOE WAS BEAUTIFUL . SHE LOVED MEN. SHE LIKED TO PLAY WITH OUR CATS. ZOE WAS YOUNG WHEN SHE WENT TO HEAVEN. WE LOVED HER VERY MUCH AND WILL ALWAYS REMEMBER HER.
What a silly cat! Always into trouble and mischief. But he gave sweet hugs and made hundreds of batches of biscuits on my arm. He will be remembered.
