My little Gucci girl, you will be in my heart and memories always

Posted 12/29/2021  4:20 p.m.

Gucci's passing has left such a gap in my heart and life.

I miss her companionship,

Her comedian playful ways,

Her silly dances of joy,

Her fun and exploring times,

Her climbing up the bed to wake me,

Her scratching at my ankles to be picked up,

Her kissing my face when I've had a bad day,

Her quiet moments sleeping in my arms,

Her love and choosing me to share it with.

I will always cherish these moments of her,

and will carry them in my thoughts forever.

We can't ever forget that little face

Anaya Grace ❤️

A few words for the blog about our beloved Anaya Grace:

Anaya Grace was our loving friendly ferret who filled our lives with so much joy and spontaneity for two amazing years. Her personality was curious, her spirit endless, and she loved to hop about "dooking" to her heart's content. We miss her little face, her little kisses, and her cute little sneezes. We will miss the light of love inside her soul so very much. 

RIP Anaya Grace Pothier 


Faith was my opinionated calico and Cookie was 

my silly tuxedo cat

Faith and Cookie were my constant companions on car rides, and they even made the drive with me when I moved from NY to CA. Faith was not thrilled about getting a little sister, but Cookie charmed her. Despite occasional ear-biting, they were a good team. I lost my beloved Faith in June 2019 and my precious Cookie in April 2020.

Within a 7 month period of time, I lost 3 of my kids. Mandy (collie) had to be put down at the old age of 14. She was my last collie and beautiful. Maeve (St Bernard) and Milo (Pom) were my heart dogs and died totally expectantly – it shattered my heart. Hug your kids and cherish each and every moment because you don't know how long you will have them. I miss the shedding, slobbering, and general mess but most of all I miss being able to hug my babies and tell them how very much I love them.

Mandy, Maeve and Milo

Romeo was my heart dog. He came from a litter of 9 that we had. Originally we called him "Big Boy", but soon changed his name to "Romeo" as we quickly realized that he was a "love bug" in every sense of the word. He quickly attached himself to me and literally became my shadow. In the summer, when it was time to mow the lawn, Romeo wanted me to play with him by throwing his tennis ball. If he felt I wasn't paying enough attention to him, he would walk up to me as I was mowing and drop his tennis ball onto the mower deck. As you can see in the picture, he loved going "bye-bye" in the car. He wasn't happy unless the window was rolled down so he could hang his big head out the window. And true to his name, everyone loved Romeo. Read more

Our Christmas Dream Chevy 
Posted 11/22/2019 at 9:50 a.m.
Our names are Chris & Sherry. We had an almost 16-year old Corgi named Chevy that was our life… in every aspect. He was, in his own right, our little celebrity, because it seemed like everyone knew him. He was our Christmas gift to each other the first year we were in our home, as well as the ring bearer in our wedding.  Learn More

Sam, my one in a million sweet boy!

Posted October 31, 2019 at 9:49 a.m.

In the Fall of 2006 at a mall, my local animal shelter was trying to adopt seven puppies whose mother was rescued from a drug bust. Not wanting a dog because of my work schedule, I stood off to the side as my wife played with the puppies. One puppy was sitting on the side staring at me.  Learn More

Skyla: Luv-a-Bull Pretty Pittie Princess

My husband and I raised Skyla since she was 8 weeks old. She was a pit bull (the runt of a litter of 8 and only white pit bull) and she had the ideal situation for her breed growing up. Learn More

My Sweet Senior Mifflin

This is a story about my sweet senior poodle named Mifflin. Mifflin spent most of her life in a puppy mill where she was bred over and over again by selfish humans to make money for them.

Peach was still a little kitten when I started taking her back and forth to college with me, a two-plus hour one-way trip. Neither of us liked the drive, but she was a great little traveler, and when we got to my apartment, she owned the place. Learn More 

Love and miss you!

Puss Puss was always chasing me around the house since he was a little kitten.

I will miss and love you forever. Love- Jenni

Kirby- we will always love you!

Nearly fourteen years ago the Summit County Humane Society had an approximately two years old cute and very thin Shepherd-Akita mixed dog with snow on his nose that caught Therese's attention. Therese and Kirby knew what they were doing because we brought him home and he turned out to be the most wonderful dog a family could have.  Learn More

I have always considered myself to be a strong man. Mentally strong, I mean, able to do what has to be done no matter how difficult. I could, but won’t, cite dozens of examples of times that I endured grievous pain, both physical and mental, and handled it stoically  Learn More
