thanks for your site,a friend of mine had to put her cat down,i hope this helps her cope

Thank you so very, very much for creating this site! Having someplace to go to send sympathy cards to friends & family who have lost a beloved pet /family member is so nice! I know that when I send one of your cards to a grieving pet parent, they will appreciate not only the beauty of the card, but also the sentiments inside. May God continue to bring you much success!

Thank you for creating this site. It is wonderful to know that I am not alone in the grief I feel whenever I lose a 'four-legged child.' So many people do not understand or think you should be used to it by now. They do not understand that every furry child is a unique soul we are privileged to know and grieve when they depart. Other people say 'that is why I do not have pets because I do not want to go through that pain.' Basically saying I am dumb for choosing to love an animal that will die before I do. I respond to that ignorant person with a smile and say 'The fifteen years we shared are worth every tear I will shed and the grief I will endure.' The poem Farewell Bridge captured almost exactly what we just experienced with Trinket my fifteen year old that just passed away 5/19/13. It comforted me to read your words...deepest condolences on the loss of your own furry children.

Name:  Kathleen
What a lovely site, thank you very much.

Name:  Rosann
Thank you, for your dedication and love that you have for all fur babies. Immanuel Kant once said ' you can judge the heart of a man/woman according to his/her love for animals'. Your wonderful website surely reflects your heart. Also Carol Crandell quotes 'you don't heal from the loss of a loved one because the time passes, you heal because of what you do with the time'. May God be with you now and always.

I just wanted to thank you for making this site, for people to send cards for those that have lost thier beloved pets, so many people do not understand pet loss, and it is almost the same type of grief that people experience over the loss of a child. the last two weeks three of my friends have lost beloved pets, that were family members, there are just no words that can help reduce the pain over the loss of thier beloved family member. I know , I have experienced it, to find your web site tonight helped me also to be able to find the words to say with the beautiful cards, poems and topping it off with music. Thank you for this place to come and find solace within..Judy and my dog Megan..a Boston Terrier

Name: Clover

Name: Rich Vaughn
Yesterday 02/13/2010 My WHFT Arlo left for doggie heaven, He was my life for 15 yrs 3 months, I miss him so much, Everyone that ever met him always commented on his big smile and laughter, He was truly a devoted friend, I had him from the moment he was born and fell in love with him instantly, We shared our lives togather, our walks and he loved to ride in the car. Arlo loved his dish of vanilla ice cream. His last meal on earth was steak and bake potato. He would sleep next to me every night and would lay his head on my shoulder or chest and just look up at me with his bright eyes to say 'I Love You Daddy'. We had a very special bond, My vet said he never knew a dog that was so loved and that I gave him a quality of life that most dogs he has met didn't get. He doesn't know how much Mommies & Daddies of WHFT love their children.The tears flow and my heart aches, but I know he is in heaven being a puppy again.
Good Night My Son Arlo, Daddy Will Always Love You. Da! ddy Rich

Comment:  Oh what a Godsend this website is. Just yesterday I had to say goodbye for the last time to my beloved Boomie, a 14 yr old mini dauschund. I am unconsolable for the loss right now, but just reading your loving poetry makes me realize that it won't always be this way. There will be brighter days ahead. Thank you for the hope and love you are spreading so unselfishly. I will wipe my eyes now and know that he is not really gone from me, he's just not here. God Bless You for sharing and having the strength and love to do this site.
