 Special photos and treasured memories of some of our four-legged best friends...

 

Bella was a sweet, shy, feral girl who came to live with me in 2004 along with her friend, Buster. The pair came from a troubled home. I was going to foster them and adopt them out. However, for the first six months the pair spent most of the time hiding under a bedspread in the foster room.

Unlike Buster, Bella never socialized. She kept her feral ways until she died on March 30, 2017, that was the first time I could hold her and pet her. I am very grateful to Dr. Sernik of The Journey’s End for allowing Bella to pass peacefully in the home she knew, surrounded by her feline friends.

If or when you are faced with end of life care for your companion animal, I highly recommend Dr. Sernik. She is compassionate, understanding and caring veterinarian who provides a service that minimizes the stress and anxiety for both you and your companion in a very difficult time.

Bella will always be in my heart.

 Occhio  

Occhio started feeding at my outdoor station in 2008. She was no more than one year old, but looked like she had a difficult life. The side of her head was scarred and dented, her eyes were teary, her ears were crumpled and when she was spayed, the vet said that her pelvis had been broken and it healed, but not properly.

In December 2014, before the first of the snow storms, I scooped Occhio up and brought her into the house. She adjusted very well and was very happy being warm, dry and having access to unlimited food and water. While she was true to her feral nature, she did allow me to pet her head occasionally.

On October 28, 2016, Dr. Sernik helped Occhio pass over The Rainbow Bridge. While it is difficult to lose a companion animal, the fact that Occhio could be in familiar surroundings with friends, helped both her and I through this mournful event. I truly appreciate The Journey’s End and the comfort using the service provides. Thank you, Dr. Sernik.

We all loved you little Sylvestor! May flowers always line your path and sunshine light your day. 2000-2017. Dr. Sernik was such a thoughtful and kind person to help us with our little boy. Thank you so very much.

Celebration of BonBon du Noir; BonBon, Obebon, Bonnie, sweetest of the sweets. There are no words to describe the love, the joy, and the sparkle she added to our lives.

Mugsy our sweet and devoted Pug for nearly 15 years didn't ask for much; food and water in the morning, a quick stroll in the afternoon, a soft bed at night, and always, a whole lot of love. In return he gave us abundance of adoration. We miss him deeply, but will always cherish the memories which will never diminish.

 Sunny  

Sunny was a special boy, his full name was Sunshine and that's what he was to us. He was always there to give unconditional love. He was the runt of the litter but couldn't have had a bigger personality or more love to give. We loved him so very much. We will never forget him, he will live forever in our hearts.

Gucci, an Italian Greyhound, was a very playful dog when young.  He would run in circles all day and then cuddle with you at night.  He loved to howl and especially howl on Birthdays and would sing Happy Birthday with the family.  He loved attention from anyone and was very friendly and never would hurt a fly.  He enjoyed watching dogs, cats and squirrels in the front yard walking by and he would get excited because he wanted to go outside to play with them.  Anytime you said the word "squirrel" he would run to the window and look for it.  He loved to go for rides in the car but he hated motorcycles with a passion.  He would bark at them furiously anytime he heard them.  He was the best dog and we loved him dearly and he loved us unconditionally.

 Lady  

Lady loved the snow. When my son was younger, as soon as he would start getting on his snow suit she would jump around and almost knock him over. She loved to go out and chase squirrels from around the bird feeder, it sometimes looked like she would climb up trees after them. She enjoyed going for walks with us around the neighborhood, she would drag my son all the way down the street. She was an incredible jumper, just standing still, when she got excited (walks or a ride or to play) she would jump straight up and be eye ball to eye ball with me. The house is very strange without her, and as guilty as I feel about it we will have another dog soon. I am 58 and have always had a dog around since I can remember. She is missed by All !!!

There are so many good things to say about Titus. We had so many names for him…Big Boy, Pup, Titus Boy…he was such a great dog! He truly was a gentle giant. We could not have asked for a kinder, more loyal, loving member of the family. He enjoyed being around people and was great with kids. I think what he loved most about life was being with his family, taking walks, playing with his Jolly Ball and tennis balls, hanging out in the snow, napping on his couch and singing (a.k.a howling). I think eating cheese and steak was high on his top 10 list as well. One of the most comforting sounds was his snoring. It could be very loud at times, but it meant that he was sound asleep and happy. When he snored, all was right with the world! He would always be waiting for us when we got home.  His tail would be wagging and I would swear that he was smiling. There is nothing like your best friend meeting you at the door every day!

 Angel  

It is said that a dog is a man's best friend; in the time we shared with Angel she was truly our best friend. Angel came into our lives at a time when a best friend was needed, the joy love and happiness that she brought to our family, words cannot express. Angel was truly part of our family, happy, loyal, with a loving considerate nature. Angel is missed as she will be forever.

The house is so quiet without Brann. He was so big in our little house we would always be stepping over him. I miss him a lot. When Joe travels he was my company. We walked, ate and slept together, he would listen so attentively to me. I think of him every day. I know as time moves on this will pass. Brann was a good friend. He was a big part of our family. He came from a home with many children, he was a big teddy bear, a gentle boy. He protected children playing in the yard from a bear by chasing it away. While living with his first family he lived outside at his first home. We didn't know this at first. When we moved into our home with Doozy our dog, Brann made friends and hung around on our porch most of the time. We would walk home before dark only to find him on our porch an hour or two later. We felt bad when it was cold, raining or snowing leaving him on the porch so we invited him in. We became his second home. He received a warm meal and a dry place to sleep. When they moved and asked us to keep Brann as our own I was thrilled. I think Brann was also. He did visit his original family from time to time when they lived up the road but always came home to eat and sleep. Brann loved to take walks, he would go to our neighbor's who walked with her daughter twice a day and Brann would be waiting for her.

 Bailey  

Bailey was a wonderful companion; a true member of our family.  We miss him so much.

Logan was the most loyal, regal, and dedicated canine. She was not only smart but protective, playful, and proud. We miss her Boxer snoring, wiggles, and kisses. She was our first Boxer and paved the way for all the present and future Boxers in our family.

B.N., Wilton, NH

 Mouser  

Mouser was a part of our family for over 15 years. He came to us as a stray and quickly assimilated into our family. You guessed it, Mouser was an outstanding hunter and very macho, which is how he got his name. He had a gentle and loving side as well. He loved to be held, cuddled with and would follow us around more like a dog than a cat! When we would have a bad day or a sad event, Mouser was there with his unconditional love. We are fortunate to have been blessed with such an awesome gift for these past 15 years.

Tyson, our noble caretaker grew very tired and weak at age twelve. He loved us all deeply and cared for us for twelve wonderful action filled years. He loved our yard to run and chase squirrels; he also loved going for a ride, except to go to the vet. Because of this we opted for a relaxed, loving passing with his family at his side, on his pillow in his family room. It was a blessing for all of us, our noble man passed to God with dignity and love. Thank you Dr. Sernik!

 Xena  

Xena was a wonderful companion- she was like the “little” girl I never had. She was lucky to take 27 trips to Florida with us. I truly miss her every day.

We adopted Oscar when he was 5 years old and we had the good fortune of having him in our lives for nearly 10 years. Oscar, once again, proved that a rescue dog gives you a special kind of love. He was such a good, sweet boy that we always found it difficult to believe someone gave him up. We will forever miss him, but the thought of him will always bring back many happy memories.

H.P., Merrimack, NH

 Oscar
 Quin  

Quin was the whole package... loved his walks- the loop, mountains, trails, the beach, he always showed utter joy in seeing you as if you were the most important person on earth. He was a mentor and companion to his younger more self focused brother Rudy, was never interested in fetching or swimming, and always I swear a smile on his face. Right up until the end, at almost 15 years old, Quin was a participant on the geriatric loop circuit, always a giver and in the end he died surrounded by family and having had many final treats hand fed to him for which he was very excited. He gave a final contented smile as if to say I am the happiest dog in the world, put his head down, and closed his eyes... as peaceful as that he went. The dog even gave as he was dying. Thanks to God for this dog, the design of him, the comfort of him, the joy he had in life and the appreciation he showed us for that joy, letting us know that he felt loved. See you on the other side, Quinny!

H.P., Amherst, NH

 

Our wonderful German Shepherd, Rhadamanthus “Rhad”...was a wonderful companion and had an extremely strong “ball drive”. He was happiest chasing a ball or if there was no one to throw it, at least he would have a ball in his mouth.

H.V., Greenville, NH

 Rhad
 Suzie  

Suzie was a character; snuggly, opinionated, ferocious, chatty. When she was a kitten she would leap sideways when startled, and had a habit of perching on high places and launching onto anyone who was passing by. As she got older that became impossible, but she still ruled the house. She was my dad's cat, and came to live with us when my dad passed away. She lived nearly 20 years, and although she slowed down she remained a warm companion.

K.D., Nashua, NH

 

Max was the most loving, loyal and sweet boy. Also known as "Mr Floufy", he faithfully greeted everyone who walked through the door with a wagging tail and lots of love (even if you just went to the mailbox for a moment). We miss him terribly: our hiking buddy, confidant, shotgun passenger in the car and boat, and snuggle buddy. While we are lost without our daily companion, we are so grateful and blessed to have had over 11 years of his love.

N.L., Pelham, NH

 Max
 Red  

This was taken around Halloween 2009 – Red was the sweetest dog. He just wanted to be with his people – the girls would dress him up – and he was always willing to play along. We were good to him and he was good to us. He loved the snow and of course any puddle or body of water – but hated baths – haha – anything that involved soap or brushes. As soon as we would get him clean – he would roll around and get messy again! He was a joy to have and we loved the 6 years he was with us.

T.T., Windham, NH

 

Maxx was my most trusted companion for almost 16 years. We learned about each other each and everyday. We built a lasting friendship together that will stand the test of time. He possessed many of the great qualities one would expect from a black labrador retriever. It would be difficult to list them all here and now. However, suffice it to say I am very proud to have experienced an endearing moment of time with this wonderful dog. He was well regarded and truly respected. One of the things I miss about Maxx is when I would sit in a room he would rest his body next to my feet knowing that if he fell asleep and I were to move, he would want to know and move with me. It is a relationship I will not forget. I miss him dearly.

 Daisy  

Daisy was our faithful, daily companion. She went with us everywhere and was more like another child (or sibling) than a pet. While the sadness of missing her is still overwhelming at times, knowing that we had such a peaceful "Good-Bye" with her was a blessing. The last thing that we wanted was for her last ride (boy did she love to go for rides!) to be to the vet to euthanize her. Having her here, at home with her loved ones, was the last kind thing that we got to do for her. We are forever grateful for the service that you provide. I have the clay paw that you made for us on the window sill in my office on a small easel with the lock of fur that you gave to us. She's with me every day in memory.
