Pet Memorials

Dear Mortimer (Jan 2004 – Sept 2020)

You were my first doggy love of my life and I will never forget you.  You will always be my loving pommy son and I will always be your pommy mommy. You have always been there for me to lift my spirits as well reminding how much you loved to go on walking adventures together. I will remember how you liked to lick the snow when you played outside, how you liked playing tag with squirrels, how you loved walking me instead of me walking you, how you made a funny face when we offered you peanut butter, and how you pawed at the ringing bell to tell me that you needed to go outside. You have been the alpha dog of our pack for 16 years and have always been my rock. Your younger brother pommy Mickey misses you.

You have lived a long full life and you will always have a special place in my heart . Please say hello to Sebastian, Douglas, and Minnie, and tell them we miss and love them all very much.

Always and forever your pommy mommy,


And, your pommy daddy and brothers (Scott, Mickey, and Nico)

(Aka: Kuds kuds, the sweety sweets, baby girl, sweetheart, gooby, Kuds)
Oct 3, 2007 to July 11, 2020

Our sweet baby girl gained her wings on July 11, 2020. This was the hardest decision I ever had to make.

Kodah you become part of my life when you were just 5.5 weeks old and you instantly stole my heart. I got you at the young age of 19, you grew with me into my adult years.

You have been there for me through the ups and downs, you were always happy go lucky and didn’t care where we were as long as we were together.

We created such a strong bond through the 12.5 years together.

When Nathan came into my life you instantly accepted him into our little circle. To see you guys form a bond in the last 3 years was beautiful to watch. You always reminded him that you only listen to mommy but you also showed him how much love you had for him with your kisses and butt wags.

Then came Zion, your crazy, hyper and much younger brother. You taught him manors, put him in his place but also showed him so much love. To see you guys cuddled up together everyday melted my heart.

You will forever be remember by your goofy personality, the way you pounced on your frisbee while getting mad and barking at it, your endless air kisses to anyone you met, your love for cuddling and how you had such an expressive face, especially your head tilts.

Our place feels so empty without you baby girl, you will forever be in our hearts and we will never forget you. Until we meet again.

Love Mommy, Daddy and Zion

Tucker – June 19, 2020

We may have only had you for a short time, but you made our hearts so full. The house is quite without you here. You were the smartest dog and learned everything so quickly. We miss you so much but we have peace knowing you are with us at all times.

Til we meet again Our sweet boy


Sunny Babluck

2009 – 2020

We lost one of our fur children on July 11, 2020.

Our Sunny was laid to rest today after struggling with Cushings disease and liver damage.
Sunny had multiple names such as DohDoh, Brown dog, ChoCho, Monster man, Clikity Clack and just a little guy.

He was stubborn, loyal, protective, loving, smart and funny. He was also a jerk, a bully, barked at nothing and had no problem stealing food out of anyone hands.
Sunny was a one person owner but as our family grew, he adjusted with no issues. Sunny loved running after bubbles with Nicole , loved playing catch and had no problem barking at you if you didn’t play with him fast enough. He also barked at you if you did not feed-him on time. He was at his bowl every day at 5 pm sharp impatiently waiting.

He had a hard time listening, made me mad often. But despite of that, he completed our family !
Our home is going to be so quiet without you Sunny and we are all going to miss you so much.
I am glad you are no longer suffering but wish you could have stayed longer.

I am going to miss seeing you at the front door with your happy dance when I get home at the end of the day . I know Minnie will look for you and will miss you.

You were never “Just a dog”. You were a very important part of our family and you were loved dearly!

Rest In Peace my Boy!


August 15th, 2012 – June 5th, 2020

7 years ago,

in a little farmhouse in a little town near St-Jean sur le Richelieu, Marshall chose us.

Marshall was full of life; he had a larger than life personality. He was a lover of all food, walks and car rides, Marshall loved it all as long as he was surrounded by his family.

When Marshall was diagnosed with lymphoma im June of 2016, he did not slow down. He did not let the cancer bring him down and continued to be his goofy self. He received exceptional care from oncologist Dr. Hugues Lacoste at the Ottawa Animal Emergency Hospital. Unfortunately, after much chemotherapy and medication Marshall got tired.

When we think of Marshall, we do not think about the cancer and his law few months and days. We think of him as a goofy, sometimes sassy little man that has been and will always be the best dog a family can ask for.

Even though Marshall has crossed the rainbow bridge, he still remains in our hearts. He was our easiest hello and our hardest goodbye. He will forever be missed.

“You are our sun, our moon and all of our stars” Rest Easy, Marshy.

Jerry – June 10, 2020

It’s hard to believe that it was nearly 16 years ago that Jerry came into our lives. Clinging to his brother, he gradually warmed up to us and let us into his life. His slap stick sense of humour was qualified with a huge loving heart and the ability to illicit an “awe Jerry” with a chirp, coo or head thrust into your ribs.
Bound by his captors to remain indoors, his love for the screened porch grew. There was nothing better than to catch a summer country breeze while bathing in the warm sunlit glow of the afternoon. His one venture out of the house led to exciting times and coined the phrase “Jerry’s Excellent Adventure”. He adjusted to city life quickly and squirrel watching with his bro was an excellent hobby. He was never too far away, often bringing his toys to his peeps.
Despite his declining health, his spirit stayed strong until the very end. He will be forever remembered as a loving and important member of this family. He was loved dearly and has taken a piece of our hearts with him.


At almost 12.5 years old it was a tough day for me when I lost my bearded dragon JD. Words could not describe the heartache I had, he had been with me for so long. I brought him home at 5 weeks old when he wasn’t much bigger than my thumb. We had been through everything together since moving out on my own, and eventually moving in and starting a life with my now wife. She was always loving and supportive of him, even when he would get stuck climbing all over his 4×2 terrarium and require some assistance. His favorite treat was slices of strawberry, and he would always prop himself up using his tail to stand on his hind legs and watch us in the living room. I am very grateful for Paws at Rest and the services they offer us as pet parents.

Breed: Tosa Inu a.k.a Japanese Mastiff

Takhero was an Angel sent to us at a time when we didn’t know how much we would need his unconditional loyalty and love!

This boy did not have the best start to his life but we hope he had the best time of his too short a life, 2 years 3 months with us.
We hope he knew how much we loved and cared for him and also how much he taught us about giant breed dogs. It was always a pleasure when we were out with him to talk to the numerous people that would approach us and always a joy to see their reaction to our beautiful, calm and well behaved giant!
He was a dog that touched many hearts in the mere 7.5 months he was with us.
He will always hold a place in the hearts of those who loved and cared for him; Cheryl Ann – his new mom who unfortunately never got to meet him in person but who cared for him all the way from her military posting in Bahrain. Cindy Draper from T&T Dogs Unleashed, she took on helping us work with him out of the kindness of her heart, allowing us to learn how rewarding living with a giant breed could be. Grant, Kathy and Gertie Seabrook, he was our angel and arrived during our first year operating our boarding facility, we truly believe that it is through our experiences with Takhero that we are able to provide other giant breed owners a place to feel confident in leaving their loved ones in our care.

We would like to thank Francine and Maria for their sincerity, empathy, and understanding. The service they provided us for Takhero’s cremation and preserving his memory in our hearts has been more than we expected and most certainly deserving of our beautiful boy.

Bella – July 27, 2019

My dearest Bella
You were my best friend. You were the best dog anyone could ask for. You made me smile, you licked my tears, you made my heart whole. Thank you for being there for me throughout the years. I couldn’t of made it without you. You gave me unconditional love, you were our protector and for that I want to thank you from the bottom of my heart. You will forever hold a place in my heart. I love you my Baba. Mommy xoxo


2002 – 2018

It’s been months since you left us but we still miss you. Although the we know that you are now free of pain and running with your mom and dad and Charlie, we still wish that you were all still here with us.

Love mom and dad. And your cottage family, Stephanie and Kevin.

Rudy – March 2, 2019

On March 2, 2019, we lost a precious member of our family. Rudy had a unique personality and was a huge presence in our lives even though he was just a little guy. If he wasn’t sharing his love with lots of kisses or lying along side one of us enjoying a nap he was quietly listening to all our troubles and making us feel better. Rudy’s time with us was too short but the love shared is timeless.


Minnie Meyer

August 2011 to Feb 2019

We have lost our sweet and dear loving Minn

Mustang Meyer. She was battling cancer the last few months.
Minnie, you were a very special friend and companion.
Thank you very much for coming into our lives and enriching us every day.
We will always remember you in our hearts. We all miss you very much.
– Your Daddy and Mommy (Scott and Anna) and your brothers (Mortimer and Mickey)

FÜLI – February 23, 2019


There are relationships and bonds we form in this world that none can replace.

Füli and we had such a relationship; while we love all dogs, big and small, Füli was the one who chose us nearly 12 years ago and came to be our best friend.

Through thick and thin, he has been our anchor and the love of our lives. We were his everything and he was ours.

When we think of him, we think not of the last few weeks or months; we think of years of happiness and not knowing anything but him as a center of our family.

Füli was the picture of happiness: as long as with his pack, walking, coming back to his nest where he could keep an eye on us and share in our meals, he was fully content.

But nowhere was he happier than at the Arboretum, running free, sniffing away, meeting new friends and simply enjoying nature to its fullest.

Füli has left this world, but he has not left us. Always in our hearts, always part of our lives, he remains our love now and always.

We will meet again, my love !

DUKE – October 9, 2018

Though it’s been months, I still have tears in my eyes and a catch in my throat the size of an apple as I write this.
Duke exemplifies why I believe what I do. The fact that he was canine makes no difference, as all beings have souls and spirits, and boy was his special.
When he arrived at our house he was a mess, a stray from the streets of Gatineau. How he ended up as a stray is beyond me. Despite the many physical ailments plaguing him, his kind spirit shone through. There was no way he was going to die on our watch. His chest cold was so bad that he sounded like a 100 year old smoker. The first few nights I stayed on the couch with him, terrified he’d stop breathing.
A lot of TLC, good food, and eventual surgeries to remove broken teeth, an unknown lump and get him fixed and he was a different dog. He also bonded with his brother Prince & the two became as inseparable as real brothers.
Something else extremely special began to occur. This wonderful soul became in tune to my feelings, and began to ensure I was protected and cared for. When Prince died suddenly, we were both shocked, and solidified an unbreakable bond that was obvious to all. He was my constant companion, helped me grieve and became my ESA companion. He facilitated many trips I wouldn’t have been able to do otherwise.
When we got our little fireball called Cocoa, he immediately embraced the role of big brother. He was loving, protective and infinitely patient. Pouncing and wacks with large toys were all tolerated by what could only be called a human sign.
When he became ill, he received great care at Blair Animal Hospital, the Ottawa Emergency Hospital and he was at DMV Veterinary Center in Montreal awaiting surgery when he passed away suddenly. For his sake, I’m glad it was sudden and painless, and not after an invasive surgery. But for me, it’s left me devastated, with a void that will never be filled.
I love you Dukie Duke & I will never forget you or stop loving you. You are gone but never forgotten.


MAGGIE – November 5, 2018

In August, 2001 my daughter was attending a summer day camp when the Humane Society of Ottawa visited the camp. One of the animals they brought was named Maggie, a 3 year old stray; my daughter instantly fell in love with her. The next day when my wife and I went to the Humane Society, the attendant handed me a tiny black ball of fur; Maggie tucked her head under my chin and purred, she had found a new home.

For the last 17+ years she has been a valued member of our family. She was everyone’s cat, and shared “lap time” with the three of us. Several years later, when my daughter left for university, and th

en to work in another city, at night Maggie would often meow and force us to take a tour of her room, letting us know she was missing. My daughter and Maggie had a special bond.

In late October, Maggie knew her time was drawing near and it seemed she was telling me she wanted to see her “sister” one more time to say goodbye. Our daughter came home in time and our family was reunited for one last weekend. Time caught up with Maggie the next day.

Thanks to the Blackburn Animal Hospital and Paws at Rest for taking care of our Maggie. Our family has lost a dear member and our home seems empty without you. We miss you, and you will always live on in our hearts.

Love from your family
