Default Tributes to the gone but never forgotten.

I thought it would be nice to share and hear others' stories of pets that they've lost for whatever reason, ones that really touched our hearts while they were here. I'm sure we've all got some pet in mind that was our heart and soul at one time, maybe long before we were even on the forum; I thought it would be nice to have a thread dedicated just to their memory. So please share your stories and any pictures you might have.

My first tribute will go to Chico, the beloved mutt that my family adopted from the animal shelter. Despite the name she was a girl, but it was my grandpa that named her after their last dog. Chico lived to be around 14 years; I spent my whole childhood with her and she was my best friend. While other kids played House or with dolls, I was pretending to be a puppy side by side with my "sister". Old age took its toll and she was euthanized in my arms at the vet clinic I'd been working at in high school...


(i was just 16 in this)

My second Tribute goes to Pixxi. She was a beautiful chinese crested dog that was glued to my side when I worked at the doggy daycare. She was friendly, everyone loved her and she returned the love to anyone who'd give her the time of day. She wasn't normal for a CC, as she was barely 5lbs; but she was my dream dog that I'd wanted for a very long time. I lost her to a tragic accident at the home I lived at at the time. I was devastated and to this day I won't forgive myself for what happened; though I use that passion to help make sure the dogs I still have with me are always safe. She was the sparkle that made the darkest time of my life light up and I will always thank her for that.



I am at peace knowing both of these angels are watching over me and waiting patiently for me over the rainbow bridge..

What beautiful ladies they were!

My tribute is to our sweet boy, Mick. Oh, dear. To get through the post with no tears.

He crossed the Rainbow Bridge November of just this last year. He was 13. He liked very few people and was a biter. Bless him, we loved him anyway!
He was a fawn colored boy and beautiful to us. He was my mother-in-law's dog and my husband took him when she went into a nursing home. He was 2 years old then.
When we started dating he was 5 so he felt like ours. We treated him like our child. We will never forget him. Sometimes one of the girls will do something like he did and it makes us smile and we talk about him.

This was our Mick

oh this is such a cute idea, your babies were so beautiful.

my tribute is to my little shara, i got her from a pet shop when i was in 7th grade. i had no idea about puppy mills, she was definitely from one. she had so many health issues, and at such a young age too. she died june 25 at the age of 7, nobody saw it coming, she got sick on a saturday and i was thinking she was just constipated so i tried to give her some pumpkin or something because i read it helps them poop, sunday she was still sick so i brought her to the vet on monday since all the vets were closed on sundays. the vet told me she probably just hurt her back and she was constipated, so of course, i took her word for it since shes a vet and probably knows best. they told me to bring her back on Wednesday if shes not doing better. wednesday came around and she seemed to be doing alot better, she was still sick but she was eating and walking around a bit more, so we didnt bring her back to the vet. on thurs. night she went downhill. she wouldnt even come out from behind the desk so we decided to bring her to the vet friday morning. thats when the vet told us she has some kind of infection or something inside her, he gave her a bunch of meds and told us what to do once we got home 'if' she survived. me and my mother didnt even acknowledge that he said 'if'. when we got home she threw up and went behind the desk again, i ended up falling asleep, but it wasnt until i woke up that i was in a nightmare, i woke up to my mother screaming and going crazy and my brother was hugging her trying to calm her down, the second he looked at me i knew it was about shara.
even lifeless she was the most beautiful thing i had ever seen. she was an amazing dog, and she had touched so many peoples live, i have so many people in my family that didnt even like dogs, but she had a way of changing there minds. she was a crazy little lion inside a 3 pound chihuahua. shes the reason my whole family is obsessed with chihuahuas, and not a day goes by that i dont think of her, i can not wait to see her again.

Aw I love these stories... =(

We do need to add a disclaimer that it WILL induce crying; but I'm perfectly comfortable with that...

my tribute to my first chi honeybee 3rd. will be missed.

i used to take care of an elderly woman who orignally owned her. she moved to florida to be with her daughter. after she passed away i inherited honeybee. she didn't like men because she had only been around women. hubby wouldn't let me keep her at first. but that all changed once her got to know her. he was one of the few men she loved. she was a ball of energy. my beautiful girl. i lost her to a terrible accident about six months after we got her due to my negilence. will never get over her loss. will always love her and miss her.

This is my skippy I brought him home right before Christmas 2002 . He was my first own chi. We had one when I was 5 but she went to live with my moms best Freind after my parents got divorced. I had always wanted to get a chi so was thrilled when I got my boy. My husband and I were so attached to him he just lit up the room. He always had this cute way of walking that made you think he was strutting to show how great he was. He died so suddenly from chf we were in shock. We think of him every day and he still has our heart.

My two would be two dogs that moved with me from SC to VA. I love large breed dogs and my hubby loves small breeds so we compromised on the Basset Hound.

Rip Van Wrinkles (Rip)
My idiot cousin moved in and brought him to my parents house. He was a year or two old and was trained to be HIGHLY aggressive. The first day I did not know if I could even enter my house with no one home as he was charging the door. Well I was never going to back down so I ran up the road grabbed some yummy cookies and entered flicking treats down the hall to him until he came closer. With in a year I untrained him and even had him on the SPCA Christmas float. He grunted like a pig, was very protective of me, but I adored him. My idiot cousin gave him to me as he sais I turned him into a sissy I lost him around 9 years ago at the old age of 14. Hardest thing I have ever done was let him go as his body was in perfect health but he got dementia/alzheimers and turned aggressive at times as some days he did not recognize me.


My second would be Chelsea (Sherpherd Rotti Mix). I got her after I graduated High School. Her eyes were like tiger eye marbles and Spunk HA y'all have not seen spunk! As a pup I thought she was going to die as the grabbed Rip's jaw wrinkles and started swinging. FREAKED ME OUT but they were BFF. She was too smart for her own good! I trained her in english, french, whistles and hand signals. She could remove her own seat belt (by unplugging it) and honestly kept me on my toes! She had the teenage eye roll down to a fine art along with an elvis growl but she was my heart strings! I was the apple of her eye and she was my heart. I lost her a few years ago at 14 due to cancer. I still miss her daily.


Funny photo- Sadie, Gibbs, and Chelsea (her butt towards the hounds as they annoyed her. She thought they were so stupid lol)


Funny Rip and Chelsea story since I am already crying. I drove sports car growing up Camaros were my thing. I also had a heavy foot. My dad had a rule he would pay my insurance as long as I never got a ticket. Well I was flying through a neighborhood on my way to a friends house with Rip and Chelsea in the camaro with me. I got pulled over. Chelsea unplugger her seat belt (she was front seat) and pinned me in the driver's seat as the cop approached. Rip came around and had his head in between the seat and window on my shoulder and both were all teeth. I could not move both of these dogs weighed more that I did alone much less together. The cop looked in laughed and told me to slow down through the window. Both dogs got a burger from Burger King!

Also I was driving from VA to SC and Chelsea was up front Rip in the back (they split trips between front and back) and we were stuck in traffic in Richmond VA. I had the windows down jamming music and a guy looks at Chelsea from a car in the lane next to me and says "Oh what a beautifule dog" She looks at me rolls her eyes then looks towards him and growls. Rip pops his head up at Chelsea's growl grunts and goes back to sleep. LOL we were both laughing.
