Mee-Too Peluso
Nicknames: "Woman"; "Chugga"; "Baby Girl" and "My Puppy"
June 14, 1995 - July 19, 2003

Mee-Too was the most wonderfully incredible and most special dog in the whole world. Its so amazing that such a little dog could become such a huge part of our family and our lives. Each one of us loved her so very much and she certainly knew it. We truly believe that we are all better people because she was such a gentle and loving part of our lives. She truly made our family complete and she will be loved and missed forever.

She came into our lives in such a special way. She was a gift to our family from my sister Karen. She was the only puppy left in the litter who didn't have a home to go to and my sister kept begging us to take her. At first we were reluctant because we thought we wanted a larger dog. My husband joked that she was "not even a real dog". That was until the day my sister decided to just show up with her at our house. That puppy walked across our patio/deck and straight into our hearts. She will have a special place in our hearts always.

Mee-Too was only 7 years old when we found out she had mast cell cancer. Unfortunately Mee-Too had been misdiagnosed by her vet (Dr. Amy Platko at Cherry Ridge Veterinary Clinic, Honesdale, Pennsylvania) and precious time was lost in saving her life. What we were originally told was a "cyst" was really a very agressive and very malignant mast cell tumor. We tried so desperately to save her life. Mee-Too was getting chemo-therapy, a home-cooked special diet, vitamins, green teas and all of the love and attention possible. We tried to do everything we could not to compromise her quality of life and to make sure she always felt safe and loved. We would have done anything in the world to save her if we could have. We lost our precious Mee-Too just one month after she turned eight years old.

Our family will never get over the loss of Mee-Too. There isn't a day that goes by when each member of our family doesn't think about her or picture her in one of her favorite spots. We all still stare at her pictures in disbelief. What gets us through the really sad times is thinking about how much love and happiness she brought into our lives.

We Will Love You and Miss You Forever,
Mommy, Daddy, Nicole & Alicia

Bandit Jelonek
Skin Lymphoma
Diagnosed on 10/01/03

Lovingly Remembered by Denise and Gary

Weep not for me though I am gone
Into that gentle night.
Grieve if you will, but not for long
Upon my soul's sweet flight.

I am at peace, my soul's at rest
There is no need for tears.
For with your love I was so blessed
For all those many years.

There is no pain, I suffer not,
The fear now all is gone.
Put now these things out of your thoughts,
In your memory I live on.

Remember not my fight for breath
Remember not the strife.
Please do not dwell upon my death,
But celebrate my life.

Let us pray:

Dear Lord above, please take Bandit's soul and keep him in your care now and forever amen. As the mother of Moses laid him in the reeds at the river's edge, entrusting him wholly to your care because she could no longer keep him safe, so we also give you our Bandit's soul. Keep him safe in your love until we come, and give us Grace to come when you call us, as he came when we called him. Forgive us those times when we did not love your pet as you would have us do, and accept our thanks for your having given him to us for his time on earth.

We thank you for his loving and playful ways, for the way he always was there for us in our times of depression or trouble, and for loving us unconditionally, and for always making us happy and for always making us smile. We thank you also for the wonderful times we had at River Ranch how he loved to fetch the sticks and chew them in his own plastic swimming pool, the times at Markham Park fetching the sticks and swimming in the water, the times at Wolf Lake swimming and fetching the sticks, the times at Tree Tops park swimming in the water with his whole assortment of sticks on the other side of the canal near the lake, the times we had with him at the park around the corner from our house, the times we played frisbee and catch with the ball, the times we played "Clifford the Big Red Dog", the times we went on the boat with Uncle Timmy, the times we went camping with Uncle Gene and Aunt Diane, the times we went running together around the park and around the neighborhood, the nightly runs with his daddy, boating at Holiday park in the Everglades, Camping at Fish eating creek, Lake Okeechobee, Key Largo, swimming at Jupiter Island and Dania Beach and jumping off the docks at Uncle Davids. How mommy used to bring his hamhock bones to him every Friday night. Playing at Christy Schafale Park because this was his new happy place fetching sticks and smelling and peeing on all the smells.

We will always keep you in our hearts and you will never be forgotten. Thank you Bandit for always being there for us and giving us so much love.

"The one absolutely unselfish friend that man can have is in this selfish world, the one that never deserts him, that never proves ungrateful or treacherous is his dog. ... He will kiss the hand that has no food to offer; he will lick the wounds and sores that come in encounter with the roughness of this world. ... When all other friends desert, he remains. "- George G. Vest, US Senate, 1884

Passed away November 2003

Lovingly remembered,
Luc & Brenda Bergeron


Buddy was a very special friend to me! I had to put Buddy down in May of 2003; he was only 7 years old and had lymphoma. Although I have lost other, very beloved pets, this one has been especially hard for me -- Buddy had such a hard life at first and had to overcome many battles in his short time, but he was ALWAYS, no matter what, "smiling".

Buddy - I love you and miss you terribly. I just pray you are well and whole and with your brothers and sisters waiting for us.

The purest, most courageous soul it has been my honor to encounter ~ ~

In My Life (The Beatles)

There are places I'll remember
All my life though some have changed
Some forever not for better
Some have gone and some remain
All these places have their moments
With lovers and friends I still can recall
Some are dead and some are living
In my life I've loved them all

But of all these friends and lovers
There is no one compares with you
And these memories lose their meaning
When I think of love as something new
Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more

Though I know I'll never lose affection
For people and things that went before
I know I'll often stop and think about them
In my life I love you more
In my life I love you more

Wait for me, my Angel ~ I love you with all my heart and soul~ ~
