BabyGirl Buckley

BabyGirl became my side kick and best friend 13 years ago. No matter what life brought her and I went through it all together. Dog truly is mans best friend. She will forever be my baby girl! 








Rocket Kemp

This is Rocket! Rocket was adopted from upstate New York. Prior to New York, Rocket was due to be euthanized in Tennessee. He had a long journey to get to me as a puppy but he was saved. Little did he know, he was saving me! He was my person, my protector and my best friend. Letting him go was the hardest thing I've ever had to do. Being a pei momma isn't easy but we did it for 7 years. He loved to be with me anywhere I went and he was loved by many. It is my hope that he is soaking up the sunshine, eating all the ice cream and peeeesha he wants and making friends until I meet him at the rainbow bridge. Love, Momma 



Bentley Elijah & Lily Faith Frye

Bentley Elijah Frye 7/13/2007- 11/12/2022
Lily Faith Frye 07/13/2007- 05/19/2023
Both of our sweet babies crossed the rainbow bridge in the past 6 months. They are gone, but not forgotten. We miss them so much, our world is not the same without them. We miss the tippy tippy sounds of their nails walking across the wood floors, Bubby's shrill double bark, Lily's raspberry tongue sticking out of her mouth. If love could have saved them, they would have lived forever. They both loved going for car rides, swimming in the lake, chasing squirrels and bullfrogs, going on boat rides, fishing (so they could bite and attack the fish), campfires so they could eat the marshmallows and graham crackers, going for ice cream, watching movies curled up on mom and dads laps bumming popcorn.They enjoyed going on vacation to the beach where they would run and play in the sand and be brave and go up to the crashing waves and run and bark at them. They loved the boardwalk where they could bark at the seagulls and scarf down some Thrasers French fries. They loved playing fetch although Bubby never did understand the concept of bringing the toy back. He would just run around all proud that he got it. Lily would wait for him to drop it and bring it back to us. They were addicted to McDonald's chicky nuggets. They loved Christmas, we have never seen 2 dogs that loved unwrapping presents like they did. They would grab the present and shred the paper open with their teeth and claws. They hated wrinkles in their sheets and blankets. When we went to bed they would spend 10 mins digging like crazy to ensure their blankets were nice and smooth. They were not fans of the cold weather and snow. In fact the only blizzard they liked came from Dairy Queen. They did not enjoy baths, blow drying, hair cuts, or nail trimmings. They absolutely hated fish and bullfrogs, would attack them if they got the chance. Mommy and daddy will miss you two forever. We are sorry we didn't have more time. There is so many more adventurous places we wanted to take you to. Time is so unkind. Oh what I wish I could give to slow it down. We are so grateful for the 15 + beautiful years we got to spend with you two. You were the lights of our lives. We couldn't wait to get home to see your excited waghing tails, hear your happy barks, and get all the kisses. Now when we come home, it's just so empty and quiet in the house. Everywhere we look, we see memories of you two. One day when we are gone, we hope to see your happy faces waiting for us in heaven where we can hold you and love you again. Until we meet again our sweet angels, we will hold you dearly in our thoughts and memories. You two were the best dogs ever. Rest in peace.

Georgie Rau

Born 12/5/11 Passed 5/15/23
We rescued her and her brother at 4 months old in Maryland. She was a great protector! Definitely the Alpha. She kept all the neighbors in line and alerted any one of strangers nearby our block. Loved asparagus and almost any food, even bunnies that tried to visit our garden. She was so proud when she brought them to us. Georgie was loved very much by her human parents along with her seven human siblings. She will be missed.










Bubba Belanger

We had to say goodbye to our Bubba on May 20, 2023 as illness robbed him of quality of life. He was a member of our family for nearly all of his 12 yrs. Bubba was only a few months old when he chose us at the shelter. He loved to play, and dig under blankets looking for a choice spot to nap. Bubba was VERY vocal with us. As with many cats, he had settled into a set routine. So when we deviated from his schedule, he was sure to let us know his thoughts! It broke our hearts to have to say goodbye. So few things in this world offer the depth of bond and love that develops with a cherished pet. Our years with Bubba were truly a blessing from God, for which we are very grateful. RIP Bubba, you are dearly missed and won’t be forgotten. ❤️

Grady Diller

My dog Grady was a dog that seemed to look into my soul. He never looked away when I talked to him. He listened to every word. 13 years doesn't seem long enough to have a friend who loves me unconditionally. Wherever I was, Grady was near. It was a day I knew would come. The day I said goodbye to my best buddy. I always told him towards the end, not to worry because we will always be together. When the day came, I somehow managed to talk to him through the entire process. Telling him to go run and play. Grady was so very afraid of the vets office. I couldn't let his final moments be filled with fear. Thank you Dr Morgan for doing the job you do with such amazing compassion. It was peaceful for Grady. As for me, I'm missing my best buddy. But, I 100% believe God will allow us to be with our beloved pets again. Thank you.

Domino Hutcheson

Domino was a petite tuxedo cat with a huge personality and a long happy life. She was just over 19 when she went to the Rainbow Bridge. Domino had a happy life because she was a free spirit – rules just weren’t meant to apply to her. No matter what happened, Domi was happy. She loved being the center of attention and talking to people. Domino always had to have the last word. She had a sister, Cleopatra, who died a few years ago. Both cats loved to talk – Cleopatra asked the questions and Domino had the answers. Domino watched out for her sister and they were always together. Domino was a loving, joyful cat but she believed the world revolved around her. We found a theme song for Domino and would sing it to her; the song is “Barbie Girl” by Tori V – we changed the words to “She’s a Domi girl in a Domi world”. Domino had a great life and we miss her so much but she and Cleopatra are together again. So grateful Dr. Elser and Peaceful Pet Passage were there to give our Domino a wonderful ending to a joyful life.

Gunner Bankert

Gunner loved running around our 5 acres, playing fetch, going to friends and grandparents’ houses, playing in the snow, greeting everyone that came over by running down the driveway, and giving kisses! He is already so very missed. We appreciate your kindness during this process and tough time. Thank you. 





Lynx Donley

Lynx was my best friend for 18 years! Raised her from a kitten feeding her a bottle. Would cry and wake me up in the middle of the night for a feeding. When I cried she didn’t leave my side. She was with me thru all the tough times. She was the most gentle cat. Most perfect cat. When she walked on a table, Tv stand, etc (wherever it may have been) she would avoid everything on it and prance around it, not knocking anything off. She was a silly girl who loved to play with balls. She would hold them with her front paws as she kicked it from behind. She also loved to play with any kind of string. Even when I was sewing something she wanted the thread! Lol. When you changed the sheets on your bed she jumped up in the middle of the bed and went crazy flailing her whole body around. As she got older she lost her vision. She always knew I was there though and she would cry to get me to come to her. This by far was one of the hardest decisions I ever had to make in life, but I know it was time. She is in heaven now with her Grammy Donna. I will miss you Lynx with all my heart and soul. Until we meet again baby girl. I love you. Thank you so much to Peaceful Pet Passage. You were very professional and very nice people. Thank you so much for this in such a difficult time in life.

Ozzy Taylor

Ozzy was the best family pet! He loved playing with his nunnie (a Kong that he would break the nubs off so it would bounce crazy when thrown). He had many kids and grandkids who would play with him. He would play soccer with it. He would be the goalie prancing his front feet and you would have to shoot his nunnie past him. He was a really good goalie! He had a sister dog Daphne who he always protected. She misses him alot. His family misses him and love him bunches. RIP buddy ♥️ 






Professor Moody

"Picture a wave. In the ocean. You can see it, measure it, its height, the way the sunlight refracts when it passes through. And it's there. And you can see it, you know what it is. It's a wave. And then it crashes in the shore and it's gone. But the water is still there. The wave was just a different way for the water to be, for a little while. You know it's one conception of death for Buddhists: the wave returns to the ocean, where it came from and where it's supposed to be." 




Alexis Nonemaker

Alexis Jade Nonemaker
1/7/08 - 5/8/23
We have had our baby since she was 8 weeks old from a farm and it was the best thing we have ever done. She was such a blessing to our family and will always be remembered by her barks, begging for food, and always being such a happy girl. She was the sweetest, most loving dog ever. She always wanted attention from anybody that would walk through the door no matter who it was. She lived the best 15 years. Our house is so quiet without you sweet girl, we miss you and love you so much. You will always have such a special place in our hearts.




Laci Redding

I’m home mom.










Tucker Mellott

Tucker was our sweet 11 1/2 year old boy who crossed the rainbow bridge on May 4th, 2023. He had the sweetest, kindest soul of any dog we have ever owned. No matter what, he would always greet you with an excited tail and lots and lots of licks. We got Tucker at 8 weeks of age and my children grew up with him. His 4 year old sister Flossie was killed in December of 2022 when she was hit by a car. I just know he is running and playing pain free with her now. Tucker always displayed the kind of love, forgiveness and sweetness that we all should try to display. He was a true inspiration for our family of how we wanted to be. Thank you Tucker for loving us and allowing us to be your family. Until we meet you again in heaven...we love you. ❤



Copper McFerren

Copper Stewart McFerren
5/29/11 - 5/1/23
Adopted June 9, 2019
Sheriff Copper was laid to rest after almost 4 yrs with us. I wish we had more time to enjoy the most gentlest of giants. Copper loved taking long walks at parks, chewing on Nylabones, rolling in warm sunshine filled grass, cuddling, greeting people, barking very loudly to alert us of absolutely nothing, and playing with his sisters. Rest in peace Sheriff Copper, you are so loved 🖤🐾🐾



Titan Kemper

Titan was the best Dane we ever had. We rescued him from emaciation at age 1. And we had him back to health in no time. He had rescued us as well. Well behaved, loved people, rides, and was sensitive. He comforted me while dealing with a chronic illness and he comforted us during Mike’s cancer journey of 6 years. And didn’t leave his side, until 3 months later. He will be greatly missed…always.





Bentley Lauver

On April 23rd (2023), you crossed the Rainbow Bridge, we thought you would live forever! Trying to take almost 13 years memories and not write a book about you is hard. In your younger years, you loved fetching and catching the ball, you got some good air on some of those catches! You and Kyle would go for rides to the creek, and walks around the block. Kyle has a million pictures of you! As for Tonya, her greatest memory of you is a recent one, you got up on her bed and ate her egg sandwich! I can't take just one memory, as there are a million, you were my shadow, followed me everywhere! I miss your presence, the house is so empty without you! Rest easy Bentley aka pup pup dog, Benny Boy, Benson



Abbey Monte

Abbey was a huge piece of our hearts . Equal parts sweet and sassy she pretty much ran our home. She fiercely loved her people and was the most loyal companion to us . We loved her so much and will miss her forever . Our hearts hurt, our house feels empty , and we miss her sweet greetings every time we come in the door . We rescued Abbey 10 years ago from a very abusive situation. I hope that we provided her a safe haven and hope that she knew how much she was loved.




Buckles Brousse

Buckles joined our family as a foster after his humans died within weeks of each other. No one in their family wanted him. We named him after the last living WWI veteran who had recently passed away. We knew within a few days that he belonged with us. Buckles lived an awesome life….always with other dogs (permanent and foster), hiking, playing at the dog park, chasing a ball, sleeping in our bed, etc. He helped train a long line of foster dogs. Despite being a lab, he hated to swim. He’d wade in a few inches of water but that was it. Buckles made it through two ACL surgeries and lived much longer than anyone throught possible with Inflammatory Bowel Syndrome and Reflux. All who met him noted his sweet disposition and his ability to keep the floor clean of all dropped food. We will miss him but are grateful that his passing could take place in our home with such a kind, gentle and considerate veterinarian. I could not have gotten him into the car without causing a lot of pain. Almost fifteen years is a long time for a large dog but it is never long enough. We’ll see you again at the Rainbow Bridge!


Smokie Fegley

Smokie came to us in 2004. He was found in the engine of a car by a friend and instantly became our son's beloved pet. He was best known as "PUD" - he loved boxes, baskets, and being the boss of the house. He was 18 years old -- it's hard not having him home with us. He was loved dearly and will be missed.





Panzer Sinift

In memory of Panzer
2/3/2010- 4/10/2023
He was named Panzer after the German tank because even at 8 weeks old we knew he was going to be a power house. He was everything you envision of a German Shepherd. He was beautiful and intimidating with his huge head but had the kindest eyes and was the most gentle of souls. He loved smaller animals and all people, especially women. He would literally stop traffic when we walked with the standard comment "what a beautiful dog", and he knew it! He was my pretty boy and best friend. We were so blessed to share our lives with him for over 13 years and he was so loved. He will always be in our hearts and our thoughts.

Soot Sulzer

In memory of Soot.
A neighborhood stray mamma cat brought us Soot as a little guy. And we couldn't say no. We needed him as much as he needed us. Soot was an absolute love and was always purring. He wanted to be friends with everyone. We are so thankful for 16 amazing years with him. Until we are together will always be in our hearts. We love you Sooter.




Bailey Hancock

In memory of our beloved black lab Bailey Hancock. She was the most gentle, loyal, sweetest dog you’d ever want to meet. She was a great companion and we miss her every day.
Laid to rest 4/11/23.
Our hearts are broken.





Boonie Reynolds

Our beloved Boonie (Boon dog), such a gentle soul, loving, loyal, goofy, our wonderful companion for 15 yrs. We will miss you forever my sweet boy.
Laid to rest 4/11/23.
Our hearts are broken.





Abby Dellinger

Abby was my best friend, my protector. She would walk around with her stuffed babies in her mouth, so proud of her toys, especially if she got a new one. She was lovable, she is definitely missed.







Ellee Kwiatkowski

Here is my tribute to Ellee.
Ellee came into my life as a feral kitten who was left with her littermates on my friend’s front porch 15 years ago. We found homes for all 10 kittens and Ellee came home with me. She was the most loyal cat I have ever met and I was “her person”….Ellee ALWAYS greeted me at the door after a long day at work and first thing in the morning with her loud meows and she just “knew” when I was having a bad day or was upset and would try extra hard to comfort me. She will never be able to be replaced and there is a huge hole in my heart right now. PPP was amazing and I am so happy she was able to pass while being held in my arms in the comfort of her own home. Miss you baby girl.


Taffy Rodarmel

Taffy was with us for over 13 years. She was a rescue dog and I could not have asked for a better one. She loved the outdoors, no matter the weather. One year we had a snowstorm that left 24 inches of snow in our back yard. My neighbors thought I was one french fry short of a happy meal when they saw me with my snow blower in the back yard clearing off an area to allow her to do her business. To my surprise, she still went into the snow to take care of nature. She was a playful companion, and she enjoyed our 2:00 a.m. daily walks in all kinds of weather. No matter how much clothing I wore some winter mornings, I thought I would freeze to death, but Taffy loved it. She greeted all visitors with a few sniff's and a waggling tail. She loved to ride in our suv but always insisted on sticking her nose out the window, including in the winter time. She was a loving companion that my entire family will miss for many years to come. I thank the Good Lord for creating Golden Retrievers, she made my life worth living. God bless you Taffy, you will be missed but always in our hearts and memories.



Ginger Gordon

Thank you for making the journey of euthanizing Ginger more peaceful. It was a positive experience during our heartbreaking time.Thank you again.










Tony McCoy

Tony was my dog for 15 years. He was born in my house. I raised him. He was full of energy. About a month from his death he began to get sick and lost his energy. He was loved by me and by my family members.





Jake "Bubby" Hawkins

Jake was the best friend and protector anyone could ever ask for. Ball was life for him, he could chase the ball for hours. He was such a big presence, there is no way to fill that void. We love and miss you Bubby!!










Billie Peachey

Billie came into our lives in June 2011, she was found alone after a bad storm. She was very tiny, only 1 lb! She grew up to be the biggest and sweetest girl, I swear we never heard a growl or a hiss from her, and she rarely even meowed. She was so quiet and gentle. We lovingly nicknamed her Mee Maw, after all of her black whiskers turned white in her old age. She loved to watch the birds from her window and take lots of long naps. She was diagnosed with cancer at the age of 11, and we had 3 weeks with her after that. We made sure every day was special, and we spoiled her rotten. We are so thankful for Dr. Morgan; she treated Billie with such kindness and respect. We miss Billie so much; she will live on in our memories. She’s got the best view of all the birds from her comfy spot in Heaven.


Bailey Hollenbaugh

In memory of Bailey ❤️
December 4, 2015 - March 31, 2023
Bailey was a Sweet Beautiful Girl that We are happy to have had for 4 Years! We transported her to a rescuer in NY where it was discovered she had heart worms, the adopter backed out so I adopted her. She was treated and came to us May 18, 2019. She loved sleeping on the bed, taking walks, Wind Surfing out the front window of our car when we were going slow, playing with all the toys, but her favorite was her stuffed bunny! We will all miss her deeply, We Love You ❤️ Bailey!



Cookie Peck

Cookie was a rescue puppy. We couldn’t have asked for a more loving, happy, and friendly dog for 13 years. As our children's childhood dog, she loved laying in the sun, going on walks although we never got a handle on her pulling, belly rubs, and her dog friend at the end of life, Lexi. We will miss her dearly but we are comforted in knowing that she is at peace after suffering with such severe arthritis for many years. She is now playing in green fields until we meet again, rest in peace. You are forever in our hearts, Cookie.




Banjo Fortelka

This past week (3/29/2023), the wonderful Dr. Morgan came to help Banjo cross the rainbow bridge. His 11 years with us were full of adventure- he lived in three states and gained three human siblings and some dog siblings too. It was a painful decision to make to put him down, but he spent his last moment in his capture spot, watching the birds. Thank you, PPP, for helping Banjo pass peacefully and with dignity. Your kindness and compassion will not be forgotten. From start to finish, we have been so impressed and appreciative. Thank you.




Roscoe Woodrow

Roscoe Woodrow
aka “Ruff Ruff” “Knucklehead” “Baby” “Rocko” “Rocky Socky” “Rocky” “Rock Big Head”
He will always be two years old. The forever baby of 2 older brothers, Teddy & Archie. He had the biggest howl/bark with the most scared attitude. He loved his two bigger brothers, loved his mam and daddy, loved his nannies and pappies any only gave kisses to them. He made our family complete. He was the best one at the groomers. He had the biggest head and paw out of the three. He loved his sticks.




Tiny Saytar

Tiny crossed over on 3/8/2023. While we don't know anything about the first 8 years of her life, I choose to think that her last 7 with us were her best. She loved laying out in the grass, soaking up the sun and watching people, animals, whoever, walk by. She also loved rolling in the grass in any kind of weather. Yes - she even rolled around in the snow! She was my girl and almost 4 weeks have passed but she is still missed very much.





Pita Ambruch

It was a week ago today (3/23/2023) that I had to say goodbye to my precious Pita. My heart is broken and my house feels so empty. It’s amazing how a little 7 pound girl could make such a presence and fill a house with such life, love and laughter. A friend of mine found her on the road when she was just a baby. She had almost been hit by a car, so he stopped and snagged her and took her home. He had intended to find a home for her because he didn’t want another cat. I would have taken her, but I had two male cats who were older and brothers. I wasn’t sure how they would adjust to having her in the house. My friend decided to keep her because everyone loved her. Every time I would go visit she would come running to me for snuggles. Anyone that ever met her fell in love instantly. Eventually after my last boy passed away, she came to live with me. My friend was starting to remodel his house. He felt it was better for her and for my broken heart for her to live with me. Plus, he would be able to visit her whenever he wanted. Within 24 hours she was right at home with me. She was my first female cat and I treated her like the princess she was. I am not ashamed to say I spoiled her. My friend and I would laugh because when he came to my house she would hide under the bed because she thought he was taking her back. He took care of her but not to the spoiled level that I did. In time she realized he was just there to visit and she would crawl up on him to get butt scratches. My life revolved around her. I happily tended to all her needs. Whenever I was away from her, even if it was just to go to work, I missed her. My favorite part of every day was our snuggle time. All the stresses of the day would just wash away once she started to purr. I miss so much about her not just the affection and unconditional love. She made me laugh every day with the funny things she did. She would greet me every day when I came home from work and her little face made me smile immediately. I loved her little meow that sounded more like a peep. When I worked from home she would sit on my lap or on the back of my chair and supervise me. I miss how she would run the length of the house like she was in the Kentucky Derby. I miss how she would hide under the bed to zip out and grab my ankles as I walked by. I miss watching Friends with her (her favorite show). I miss watching her play with her toys, especially ping pong balls. She loved to bat them around and chase them. I know I did everything I could for her once she got older and started having health issues. But in the end, the best thing for her was to let her go. I hope she knows that I loved her as much as I know she loved me. She was one of a kind. I told her every night when we went to bed that I loved her because she was beautiful, smart, funny, and oh so loving. RIP my sweet Pita. I will love you forever.

McShea Bonner

McShea was just a little white furry ball with huge ears, which she soon grew into. She often caught my attention.







Maggie Amsbsugh

Maggie was rescued from a sad story but had a sweet story to tell herself. Came in the house the day she was rescued, jumped on the kitchen counter because she was terrified of everything and everyone and stayed there for 3 days. With love and time came off the counter and took over as the Queen of the house and head of the pack. Kept all the other dogs in line. Danced for her food, loved to go for walks and yes, loved hanging out on the kitchen counter looking out the window. Maggie loved to be pampered and loved getting dressed up. We miss her so much but we know she is having a blast on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

Wilson Glass

We got Wilson 19 years ago for a Christmas present for our son Aaron Glass. Wilson was the best dog ever. He slept in my son's bed with him every night. They were as close as 2 brothers could be. My son passed away May 16, 2020 and Wilson was lost. He would go into my son's bedroom every time he went back the hallway. Wilson just couldn’t understand where Aaron was. Wilson wasn’t the same after that. He lost his best friend. We will miss Wilson so much. He was always at the door when we got home and now no one is there to greet us. I know Wilson is with Aaron now playing in the fields with his toys.




Stella Solomon

Eleven years ago, we fell in love with our first baby. Stella from the beginning was nothing but pure love, fun, exhaustion and excitement. She brought happiness and joy into everyone’s life that she met. To say that we are heartbroken and sad doesn’t even start to describe how we feel. Stella, thank you for being in our lives and making our family whole. You will forever be in our hearts and we will continue to love you always!! We love you our Stella Bella




Beckham Gabriel

Beckham was a spunky fun loving boy who loved to get into mischief! We will miss him terribly!







Jeter Hannold

April 2, 2011 - March 1, 2023
We lost our baby boy Jeter ( aka Bubba Boo, Bubba, Bud, Handsome Boy) on March 1, 2023. He was just 11 years old. We rescued him when he was 10 weeks old. Jeter loved his walks, golf cart rides, his woobies, and baby sister Mia and meeting new people. He was very friendly with people and other dogs. He had a personality that will make you fall in love with him the moment you met him. He had secret little antics and never failed to make us wonder how he did some of the things he did! Jeter loved to visit his Grammy, get his treats, and play in her yard. We miss and love you so much Jeter, and your little sister Mia still looks for you. Till we meet again Bubba!!


Lucy Flynn

Dr. Mary came to our home on Thursday morning, March 16 (2023) to assist our beloved Mini Schnauzer, Lucy over the Rainbow Bridge. Lucy had a wonderful life playing with our pack of four dogs for many years. Lucy had a sweet disposition and got along very well with all of our other pets. Lucy was our last dog in the span of over 20 years of having dogs. In Lucy's earlier years she enjoyed visiting nursing homes and shut ins and brought much joy. She was a natural at service work without having any formal training. Lucy had a calm demeanor but would always get very excited when offered treats. Lucy did love her food. Lucy had a big heart and loved us as much as we loved her. I believe it was her loyalty and devotion that kept her going despite her failing health the past few years. Peaceful Pet Passage has assisted two of our beloveds and we are grateful to have had their final moments happen in our home. Thank you Dr. Mary and PPP.

Rocco Porta

Rocco has been my best friend for over 13 years. He was rescued around the age of 4 by a group called Homeward Bound from a shelter in WV where he was about to be euthanized. We bonded almost immediately and Rocco went everywhere with me. He's been to almost every dog-friendly winery on the East Coast (because I really like wine🙂). Basically, where I went, Rocco went. It was a given that he would come with me to friend's houses, holiday events, etc. I'm lucky to have had that kind of bond and love from a dog in my lifetime. He was also loved by pretty much everyone who met him. Rocco Porta is one of a kind and will be so deeply missed.



Riley Amend

Remembering our Riley over the years. We will always cherish the time we had together. Watching him chase Willie around the back yard, playing in the snow watching him try to find the elusive snowballs after they hit the ground. Eating French fries after work, the greetings at the door. I’ll miss looking into his eyes and wondering what he was thinking. He was always there, showing love and wanting attention. He always brought a smile to your face. I know he is in a better place where there is no more pain. Rest in piece Riley. The house is very quiet and lonely. Until we meet again.





Willie Shafer

A tribute to Willie
Willie, our beloved Yorkie of 16 years left us on March 15, 2023. For 16 years Willie filled our lives with unconditional love that only a dog can do. He was sweet yet fierce. He loved to welcome visitors to our home as long as they kept their distance from us and didn’t take attention away from him. At Christmas, he thought that all the presents were his. He would scratch the paper off of each box or stick his head in each bag before we could have our presents. He was our spoiled pup and he loved it. As he aged, he slowed down. Eventually his eyes developed severe cataracts, which made seeing difficult for him. Then he began having seizures. He no longer enjoyed walks or playing with his stuffed toys. The decision to euthanize Willie was heart wrenching. We knew our little man was suffering and that it was time. With all the unselfish gifts that he gave us over the years, it was time for us to be unselfish for him. Willie, we loved you your whole life and will miss you the rest of ours.

Abby Molchan

Abagail "Abby" Molchan
Our beautiful girl lives forever in our hearts.










Lilly Jellick

11/2011 to 3/13/2023
It is with great sadness that we laid our sweet Lilly Belle to rest. We couldn’t have asked for a more loving, easy-going, and gentle companion. She lived an awesome 11.5 years where she loved and was loved by everyone she met. She loved laying in the sun, following us around wherever we went, early morning walks in the yard, belly rubs, playing with her sister, and all types of food. We will miss her dearly but we are comforted in knowing that she is at peace, playing in green fields with her big sister Marley. Until we meet again, rest in peace my love.








Savannah Bankert

It is with a heavy heart that I write this about my dear Savannah. When I first saw your eyes at months old, I knew I had to have you. I will never forget how happy she was. She sat up the whole way home looking out the window. Savannah & my other dog Bucky loved to go for car rides especially when we were headed to the lake. They both loved to run the fields and swim. Savannah couldn't wait for me to throw the ball in the water. She would bring it back every time. When we went to the cabin, she loved to run with Bucky beside me on the 4-wheeler. It seemed like wherever I was, that is where she wanted to be. Savannah was a very special dog! She was so full of love. She was like a child to me. I would never leave her with anyone because I didn't want her to get hurt. She would get her toys to play with, when I tried to get them she loved to growl and put her paws on them for me to try to get them or take them away. We could spend 20 minutes playing with a ball in her mouth. She loved for me to tap on it or just try pulling on it. She loved the attention. The best feeling of all was when I would come home. She couldn't wait until I came over to hug her and give her kisses. Savannah loved to kiss you. Our love for each other was unconditional. "Savannah, the love and devotion you gave me will remain in my heart forever! I love and miss you dearly. Love, Mommy"

Ranger Layton

He was our best friend for 14 years. He was the best dog we could have asked for and he spent many years chasing squirrels and hanging out with our cats and other pets. May our beautiful pup rest in peace. Thank you for your services and all you do.




Ginger Dorward

Ginger was a very special companion to me. She was loved by all who came in contact with her. She loved people and they loved her. Neighbors would be going up the street and if she was out with me they would stop and get out of their cars to love her and she them. It has been a very difficult time without her. My heart aches every day for her. She was beautiful inside and out. She gave every ounce of breath to me as long as she lived. In her final days she never gave up trying to live for me. She taught me to be strong right with her. I am forever thankful for her being part of my life.




Baxter Billings

Baxter (4/15/07 - 3/6/23) and
Boomer (11/4/08 - 5/5/20) Billings
- brothers and best friends, recently reunited at the Rainbow Bridge. Our sweet boys. Always loved, missed, and in our hearts.






Harley Shanahan

My sweet Harley was my buddy for over 17 years. I walked in the door and there he was wagging his tail and jumping up to greet me. It has been one of the hardest things I have gone through and I miss him more than I can say. Thank you, Peaceful Pet Passage for being there for us.








Daisy Brown

Daisy was adopted from the York County SPCA and was about 7 yrs old. She was the sweetest beagle girl. She was my constant companion and bed buddy. Her passing leaves a large void and she will be deeply missed. She took a big piece of my heart when she left. Breathe easy Baby.





Onyx Adams

Onyx was a rescue dog that came to me in 2012 via my granddaughter. He wasn’t a very affectionate guy, but he showed his love by following me around as much as he could throughout his life. As dark as he was, I had to be very careful that I didn’t trip over him or step on him a lot. He loved to help eat my meals, as well as almost any treat that came his way and loved to go in the car with me. He was my companion and my boy and he will always have a place in my heart. Wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge, Onyx, my boy.



Lizzie Aloisi

Lizzie was an absolute ray of sunshine with her fluffy white hair and energetic personality. She constantly brought joy to our family throughout the past 15 and a half years and has given us so many amazing memories we will cherish forever. Some of her favorites include taking rides in the car with her dad, going on walks with her two sisters, and visiting her mom at work on spa days! We love you forever Lizzie❤️





Indiana Jones Barr

In Memoriam:
Indiana Jones, “Indie”. Best Dog Ever!.









Phebe Foster

Phebe loved being with family and cuddles. She loved to eat too. She was a very easygoing and sweet dog. She had an underbite and it would look like she was smiling.








Sadie Boots Crenshaw

Sadie was an adventurous and vocal soul that was 14 when she passed. She was always looking for a lap to snuggle and nap. You are greatly missed Miss Sadie Boots.







Gracie Schuman

Gracie was the sweetest and funniest girl. She loved life. She loved her tennis ball and even played with herself when no one was available. She loved her daily walks. She was so happy she barked the entire walk letting all the neighbors know she was on her walk and happy about it. She didn’t like cuddling unless it was her decision. Then she very much demanded it and enjoyed it. I miss her crazy antics and love so much. But she is with her bonded sister now running and playing. Catch on the other side Gracie Girl. ❤️




Sadie Mae Rufo

Sadie was the best welcome home we could have asked for and the hardest goodbye. The beach won’t be the same without you sweet girl and neither will we until will meet again on your favorite beach. Run free.






Izzy Knoll

This is my Izzy. She came into my life at 3 months of age, her birthdate is 2/23/2006, and left me on 2/28/2023 at 17 years of age. It was a wonderful 17 years and I wish I could have 17 more years. She is already greatly missed. Izzy loved food! She would eat just about anything! In the photo I sent, she and I went out for ice cream. She thoroughly enjoyed her “pup cup” and then helped me eat mine! You can see some of her ice cream on her bottom lip! It’s one of my favorite photos of her. She’s waiting patiently for another lick of my ice cream!! She also loved walks and napping. She was a wonderful companion and my best friend. I’m not sure how I will get past not having her beside me.



Rocky Ross

We said goodbye to our beloved Rocky at the age of 18 years and 8 months after an amazing 11 years together. Rocky lived a great life and received the best care for his heart condition that he had for the last 7 years, but he was healthy, and his condition well maintained the entire time. After a Lymphoma diagnosis at the very end, he spent his final 8 weeks eating all kinds of delicious human food and lived like a King like he always has been. He was the toughest tiniest little man I ever met. Rocky enjoyed lounging in the sun on our porch during the Spring and Summer, sitting poolside and enjoying bites of steak, snuggling with his mom and dad, and being glued to his mom’s side wherever we went. I like to think he stayed alive for so long so he could make up for the first 7 years that we didn’t have him. Rocky was the best boy, and he will always be the best boy as he can never be replaced. He may have been tiny, weighing around 4-5 pounds most of his life, but he had the biggest heart, which is why it was enlarged. He always had just so much love to give and so many doggie smiles! We will miss you Rockman! We love you with our whole hearts Buddy Guy!

Bedknobben Wilderson

A Tribute to Chief
Chief was just so special. He was fun, silly, exuberant, sweet, loving, smart, and such a chow hound. He was born on Christmas Eve and came to us on Valentine's Day. What a wonderful ten years with him. He was always so gentle and good with the grandkids, putting up with them grabbing his tail, putting necklaces on him, laying all over him. He knew we loved them, so he loved them too. He loved his walks outside and was always ready to play games when inside. Hide and seek was one of his favorites. And yes, I actually would hide so he would come and find me. Whenever we played with the grandkids he always gave my spot away and I would laugh. He never left my side when I was home. If I took a shower, he would lay right outside the shower door. If I went to the bathroom, he'd try to follow me in. If we went to bed, he'd sleep there with us...all 95 lbs of him sprawled out. If I was doing laundry, he would be there trying to fit between me & the dryer. And I would scold him (as I was laughing) that he was going to get dog hair on my clean clothes. But he always did it anyway because he knew it would make me laugh. he could make me laugh. At night, he would go into my closet and bring me my blanket if I was watching TV whether I was cold or not. He knew it would make me smile and he would receive a treat for this, of course : ) He loved Christmas time and would always look for his presents under the tree. He couldn't wait to unwrap them. His excitement was contagious, we always gave in and would let him open one early. I know he knew we loved him, he knew it without a doubt and he returned that love. Our home is just not the same without him. He is loved and missed every day.

Angus Hagrid "Gus" Henry

My Forever Valentine…
Yesterday morning (2/13/2023) our beloved Angus Hagrid ‘Gus’ passed peacefully, surrounded with love, crossing over the rainbow bridge to the brightest place we could ever imagine for him, to rejoin his sister Penny. . .
For nearly 8 years, our Big Man, Handsomeness, Happiness, Gustavo, Best Buddy has graced our lives. The years have been filled with the most wonderful adventures and simple moments of life’s joys: from Hoboken to London, the beaches of the Outer Banks to the English Seaside, from mountains of New England to the woodlands of Wimbledon, and leisurely walks on the commons of London and around Lake Meade. Gus was a true Mountain Man who loved being outside, day or night and most especially in the cold. He loved cuddling under his backyard tree, splashing about in streams or his personal baby pool (just don’t add soap), running in the common, and sprawling out in the snow. He was a Happy-Go-Lucky guy who greeted people with a smile and in turn, brought a smile to the faces of many. He was also most certainly a ladies man - I still can hear the Englishwoman’s shout on the common of “Angus, my boy, my boy! He’s a real lover, that one.” In the days of Zoom meetings, he became a CNN Zoom meeting special guest as he would make on screen appearances by jumping into his Dad’s lap to signal that it was clearly time to end he meeting as it was his dinner time. He was a protector of his sister who always let her take his toys without complaint and a buddy to his cousin Reign. He had a special love for his Mam-me. He was his Dad’s Best Buddy. He was his Mom’s Happiness. Gus and Penny were influential in opening the doors of friendship for us in the US and the UK. Friendships that endure and that we value so very greatly, whether near or far. We are so thankful for our family and friends who have shown them attention, care and love as well as support over the years. We truly are grateful. We knew the day was coming for the last several months after finding out that he was battling two different types of cancer at once, ever so bravely. So, while we have always done our best to give both He and Penny a good life, we have made sure that the last several months have been filled with love, comfort, and all the favorites for our Prince. He will Forever be in Our Hearts…

Caesar Zematis

We had Caesar for more than 16 years and he was the best cat ever!! He was always purring and his purr was so loud you could hear it in another room! He loved everyone…both humans and fur friends. He followed you around like a shadow, which should have been his name! He loved sitting on your lap and giving head bumps. He was very patient with children no matter how they attempted to pick him up. Everyone who knew Caesar loved him…especially his family. We miss him dearly and will love him forever.❤️




Grizzly Downey

We had put our buddy Grizzly to rest last week (2/22/2023). It’s always the hardest decision to say goodbye to a family member, but it was best for our buddy to stop his suffering. When we called Peaceful Pet Passage, they were able to accommodate our needs the same day. Dr. Morgan Elser was so wonderful with Grizzly, and he fell asleep being loved. Our hearts are broken, but we’re at peace knowing Grizzly can now run through the fields again freely with our other pets. Definitely would use Peaceful Pet Passage services again. Thank you for everything.




Bedknobben Wilderson

Our beautiful Bedknobben, 16
..she’s back with broomsticky, mom, and bob o... we loved every moment with her💓







Diesel Weaver

Diesel Weaver loved his sisters, going for car rides and playing with his favorite purple dinosaur. He was the most sweetest, happy, gentle little guy with many friends. 









Gabriella Smith

Gabriella Michelle “Gabby”
Gabby blessed us for 15 years with her energy, love of her family, winter stylish sweaters and absolutely loved her cat siblings! Gabby always welcomed the strays and new additions to our home! We love you, Gabby Girl! 🐾 ♥️
Thanks for allowing us this special treat to honor our girl!





Pablo Fuhrman

In the short amount of time that we had Pablo, he definitely got into our hearts. He was such a good listener and had a lot of love in his heart. He will definitely be missed and remembered. 






Ginger Lesh

It is with heavy hearts that we had to let Ginger go on 2/10/2023. She would have been 16 on March 4th. She is the love of our life who made us smile and laugh everyday with her silliness. Instead of golden retriever we called her the golden keeper because she would never give back the ball or stick. Our home is not the same without her. She is so loved and missed everyday ❤️. I could write a book of almost 16 years, but I know you all get it. 




Rocco Ginnetti

In memory of Rocco
We loved our Rocco. He was very spunky and protective! He had the cutest underbite and lopsided gait. He especially loved the grandkids, car and RV rides, snuggling in blankets as he always wanted my blankets no matter how many I gave him, sleeping on my feet/legs, and just being with us! He is now with his sister, Bella who was his all time favorite Rocco, thank you for bringing us so much joy and laughter. You will forever be in our hearts! ❤️



Lucas Nehrt

Our baby boy. We love you so much, and we’re so glad you’re not in pain anymore. The 15 years we had you were nothing sort of heaven. You were the best behaved, sweetest, most gentle dog this world has seen. Everyone in your presence felt your love. We hope you're giving so many kisses in heaven. We love you Lucas. Rest well. 💖 





Baylie Loiacono

My precious girl, Baylie, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on February 9, 2023. She passed peacefully in my arms, close to my heart. ❤️ She crossed the bridge knowing I loved her very much. Baylie passed "in her own way" just as she lived her life and I wouldn’t have wanted her to do it any other way. Baylie was a very friendly, sassy, mischievous, feisty kitty who loved unconditionally. She brought so much joy into my life for over 16 years. Her sisters and I will really miss her a lot, but I know she will always be with me. ❤️ 




TrixieMarie Youells

In Loving memory of Trixie Marie (Sissy) Youells
You were more than just a pet you were a loving soul we will never forget you. From Mom & Dad and Wezzy






Penny Troupe

There are too many fond memories of Penny to enumerate, but we have come up with a few of our unique memories of her.
• Penny had an affinity to walking on wet or snow covered grass. So, when she had to walk on either of those she had the ability to lift her rear paws into the air, well above her head, placing all her weight on her front paws (as if performing a handstand in a circus act) and walk to her desired location performing the “Handstand walking” to her destination.
• Penny would eat pretty much anything you would give her the opportunity to eat. Including, vegetables and fruits of all types. Carrots were her favorite. She never met a treat she wouldn’t eat.
• Penny was fiercely protective of all family members, of course. But, she was also fearlessly protective of her sister dog, Abby. At one point throwing all of her entire 6.5lb body into fearlessly attacking a large German Shepherd that had gotten loose and attacked Abby while we were taking both of them on a walk.
• Of course, Penny was also somewhat spoiled and had a couple of padded small dog beds she would use for taking her naps. Penny, as you would expect of a 6.5lb frame, was always cold. She loved lying anywhere you would find the sunlight beaming into our home through a window or a door. So, when the sun moved and the beam of light moved with it, Penny would move to wherever the sun beam was now coming through the window or door. Of course she would want her bed to move with her, but she was unable to move the bed herself. Her answer to this dilemma was to stand in the area where the sun was now beaming and bark until one of us would get up, from whatever we might be doing no matter how important, and move her bed to that new location of the nice warm sunbeam.
• At night, Penny was finished warming herself using the sun’s rays for the day. Being perpetually cold her warming tactic had to change. If she wanted to nap at night, Penny would jump up on whatever chair, or sofa a person was sitting on and cuddle up as close as possible to that person so she could, as we referred to it “Steal that person’s Warmness”. I could go on, but I think that is plenty.
Penny…”Thanks, for the memories.” 

Baby Godwin

🧡🧡🧡 I loved the way you'd look at me. The way you sometimes failed to hide. The way you tolerated Ember's kitten behavior. The way you begged for my food like a dog. The way you greeted me loudly at the door. The way you always painfully stepped on me when trying to find the best position to lay on me. The way your meow sounded more like a quack. You were a very extraordinary companion. A one of a kind cat. I absolutely miss you, Baby. I cry for the loss of you now, but you'll always be a part of me. (Definitely the weird part.) I didn't want to be there for your last moments; the way you looked at me in that moment broke my heart. I can't help but feel like I made a huge mistake, and I have to remind myself that this was for the best. The best thing for YOU, not me. I am glad I was there to comfort you the way you always comforted me. You were never "just a cat." You were and always will be my Baby. 🧡🧡🧡 

Belle Landis

Our beloved Belle. She loved all, human and furry friends and those who met her loved her sweet personality. Her nick name is “licks a lot” she always wanted to give kisses. She was my daughters side kick for 12 years and our families protector. She was queen of the house. Belle is missed dearly. 





Ra Kehoe

Hello and my heartfelt thanks for the loving compassion you showed not just my sweet boy Ra but to me and my family, HIS family while helping him to peacefully pass to whatever lies beyond. It has been difficult and remains so to be without him but we know we did the right thing and, with your help, allowed him to pass on with all the dignity and peace that the God of the Sun deserves. Thank you for all you do. You are angels on earth. 









Lucy James

I still remember the very 1st day Lucy came home with us. We had several toys already in her playpen which she promptly dragged into her crate. "Mine" she said. :) 









Spartacus Herring

Spartacus was a senior foster. He was saved from an inner city kill shelter. He was suffering too much from neglect and abuse in his past life. In the short time we had him, he won my heart. On his good days he was happy, excited, and loved being outside on walks with me. He always helped me get my steps in! I love you dearly, Spartacus ❤️ I know puppy heaven is pain free for you, we miss you so much, and I hope you’re up there playing with Mr.Biggz ❤️ 


Oscar Enders

Oscar left us on January 30th, 2023.
Our family affectionately referred to Oscar as our “old man”. Oscar loved everyone he met and was a true gentleman to the very end. On the day of his departure, he greeted the vet with his tail wagging. Oscar especially enjoyed spending time with our family on our back deck. He would spend hours taking in all the sights and smells with the breeze blowing through his ears. Oscar was a very bright spot in our family for almost 14 years. We are incredibly thankful for all of the love he shared with us during that time. We will miss him dearly but are at peace knowing that he is running free in the fields of heaven.



Rico Marrow

Our Rico gave us the most amazing experiences in the life time we got to spend with him. He was the most energetic, rowdy, bossy, and sweet little dog we’ve ever got the chance to love. When we got Rico as a little pup, he would not sleep in his cage but I (his sister) could not allow him to sleep alone. I would hear his whimpers and just have to sneak to check on him and let him out of his cage. I would lay on the floor with him and wait until he was tired enough to sleep alone. Rico was an amazing dog and we all will miss him immensely. Though this will be a long road to healing without our Rico, we are so happy he is without pain and blessed we were able to be there every second by his side. Our Rico will be extremely missed, and we pray he is running wild and free happily in doggy heaven. We love you so much Rico 🤍.




Bruiser B Barb

Bruiser B.
Much like the Big Bang Theory's Sheldon Cooper, Bruiser had a "spot" and would likely be found by family and friends in said spot on the couch with his pillow. He loved playing in the snow and sleeping in bed between his momma and poppa. He was a loyal companion for almost 14 years, a best friend that would comfort you when you were sad and was always happy to be by your side. As much as we didn't want to let him go, we knew it was time. We know he is pain-free, running around in heaven, where he will happily wait for us by the rainbow bridge until we meet again. Rest in peace, my beautiful boy.
Bruiser 3/20/09-2/4/23


Lucie Yeater

My sweet little Lucie passed away on 2/3/23. She was almost 16 years old. I rescued her from Castaway Critters at 3 months old. When I picked her up, she fit in the palm of my hand only weighing about 1 pound. Lucie loved stealing pens, eating peanut butter, apple pie and tuna. She was the sweetest girl and will be forever missed.





Penny Miller

My sweet and sassy girl for 16 years.







Couper Becker

In memory of Couper 1/30/15-1/07/23
Couper was a sweet boy...a mama's boy. He sure could turn grumpy in a second if he was trying to sleep and a loud truck or motorcycle drove by the house and woke him up. He loved to lay in the yard in the warm winter sun. He would constantly sling slobber on the walls for me to clean off! 🙂 Couper was a gentle giant and loved any and all attention from everyone. He would sing at the top of his lungs when his Daddy got home from work. The whole neighborhood could hear him. Unfortunately he got sick with lymphoma and in a matter of 5 weeks it was time to say goodbye right before his 8th birthday.
Couper...I loved you your whole life. I'll miss you for the rest of mine. Love, Mommy


Brandi Folckomer

Brandi was a very loving dog who entertained us daily. For almost 15 years she was our best friend and protector. She loved other dogs and socializing with all of our neighbors, friends and family. She will be deeply missed but comforted knowing she is no longer in pain.





Tyka Firth

Tyka was known for relentlessly chasing bears away from the woods behind our neighborhood. She had several encounters and ended up in the vets twice do to injury. She was a relentless protector and always on duty.








Matilda LaRue

Matilda was our precious angel from day one. We love her and miss her so much. We love you always and forever Matilda.










Whimsi Tauser

Once Upon a Whimsi
A friend at work called to tell me she knew of a Weimaraner puppy in need of a home. We had two dogs already and really didn’t need another one, but one of two breeds my husband had shown an interest in was the Weimaraner. I agreed to a “meet and greet.” The first time I laid eyes on her, I thought she was the most elegant and beautiful Weimaraner I’d ever seen. Her coat was a shiny slate blue gray, which is not recognized by the Weimaraner parent club and is considered a fault. No matter to me, I thought she was gorgeous. She was between three and four months old and had a story. The girl who owned her had seen her in a pet shop and paid an exorbitant price for her. “Winnie,” as she was called, probably started out life in a puppy mill. The owner had a full-time job, sang in a church choir, played on a volleyball team and was taking college courses. I don’t know when she had time to play with and train a puppy. The reason the puppy needed a new home was because the owner found herself in need of finding an affordable apartment that would accept dogs and was having no luck. After making arrangements to adopt her, the puppy needed to be introduced to our pack at home. Margaux was a Bluetick Coonhound rescued from the worst of conditions and had been moved from one shelter to another before she found us. She had been used for breeding, so had plenty of maternal instincts. She accepted the puppy without question. Albert, on the other hand, made it perfectly clear that ALL toys belonged to him and there would be consequences if any other dog attempted to take his treasures. One reprimand from Albert was all it took and the puppy never tried to take his toys again. There was no blood shed, but there was an immediate understanding between the two. The transition into our home was surprisingly smooth and the newly re-named “Whimsi” became a member of our family very quickly. I was curious about her breeding, so we looked through the papers we had been given and found the breeder’s name, address and phone number. The phone call was unsuccessful, as our number was blocked. The name and address of the breeder was in Chambersburg, so we went on a road trip one Saturday morning in search of Whimsi’s original home. The GPS system led us to a vacant lot in downtown Chambersburg. I guess the breeder didn’t want to be found and we never did solve that mystery. Although maybe not enthusiastic, Whimsi was willing to do as I asked. She did not enjoy obedience classes or competition and showed it by dropping her ears and tail and giving me the “sad eye.” Our first step was earning her Canine Good Citizen certification in 2008 when she was ten months old. From there, we started Rally Obedience classes and competed in APDT (now WCRL) Rally Trials. She also competed in the Companion Dog Sports Program (CDSP) Obedience and American Kennel Club (AKC) Obedience Trials. Randy enrolled her in Agility classes and both man and dog seemed to enjoy that activity a great deal more than obedience. They never competed, but had fun together running, jumping, climbing and weaving poles in classes. After a year or so in Agility classes, we noticed that Whimsi seemed to tire easily and lacked the energy and stamina she’d had before. We had bloodwork done. The test results showed low thyroid, so she was placed on medication. Agility seemed to drain her, so we stopped taking her to classes. When she was eight years old, we started having fun with Tricks classes through Do More With Your Dog (DMWYD). She earned her Novice, Intermediate and Advanced Trick Dog Titles. In 2019, Whimsi suffered a spinal cord stroke and was restricted from activity for nearly a year. She had a remarkable recovery, but with age, she gradually lost more and more control of her hind legs. At the age of ten, I introduced her to Scentwork and she learned very quickly. She did quite well in class and continued to succeed in competition. I believe she enjoyed sniffing as much as any activity we did together and she earned titles through C-WAGS and then AKC. Having lost her two housemates, first Margaux and then Albert, and becoming an only dog, Whimsi was alone and appearing lonely. We checked several rescues and shelters, but each dog we considered had issues. No dogs, No cats, etc. We couldn’t seem to find the one that felt right. In 2020, we did the unthinkable. We brought home not one, but two female puppies. Whimsi showed her true colors and accepted both wild and crazy into her home. She showed incredible patience and tolerance with the “Z Girls” and amazed us with her gentleness and tenderness. She gave corrections when the girls became too much for her, but she was never too harsh with them. For nearly two years, the three girls lived together in what was mostly peaceful harmony. When the youngsters got too rough in play, Whimsi would scold verbally and things would settle down. She was their surrogate mother and she treated them as her puppies. But time moves on and Whimsi began to slow down and show the signs of aging. Her rear end was becoming weaker and she would favor her left front leg from time to time. At her last check-up, I asked the veterinarian about a small bump on her left front leg. Was it something to be concerned about? Yes, definitely it was. We could remove it surgically and send it off for biopsy, but she had a heart condition. Combined with her age, she would be considered high risk for anesthesia. If the results came back positive for cancer, what were our choices? Chemotherapy and possibly radiation. At nearly 15 years old, I wasn’t going to put her through that process. We decided to wait and watch. Her appetite remained good, but she slept more and had less interest in the comings and goings of the house. With her weakened back legs, she fell a few times and needed our help to get up. It was time to make the most difficult decision of all. With less than a month until her 15th birthday, we made the call. On December 16th, twelve days before her birthday, we stroked her and spoke softly to her while she went to sleep. She drifted off quietly and peacefully as our tears dropped onto her lovely slate blue coat. Her quiet presence is missed and I still find myself looking for her, reaching for her food bowl and thinking it’s time to take her out for a walk. I sent her spirit on to my little sister, Dee Dee, who is the caregiver of all my past beloved companions. I can only hope and pray that we will all meet again one day with tears of joy.

Piper Fleming

I miss my girl so much already. So her journey started with us in May 2019. We found her or better yet she found us at the spca. She wasn’t available for adoption yet because she had to get a kidney removed. But we fought and fought and filled out an application so we had our chance when she was finally available. We’d go visit her daily. Even though we didn’t know anything about her except she was found roaming York city, had a kidney removed and by dental records she was about 4-5 years old, we knew she was the one. And she was! She was the best dog in the entire world. We had a good couple years even though it just wasn’t long enough. She loved her jackets. She did tricks for treats and loved everyone despite of being terrified of going out and about. We are pretty sure she was abused. We gave her the best life possible and my heart will forever be missing a piece since she passed. She is my favorite girl in the entire world.

Buck Rowan

Lost his battle with kidney failure…………







Deuce King

Here is our boy Deuce. He loved to play frisbee, go on long walks, the beach and car rides. His favorite was camping trips with the family and riding in the golf cart. He was so loved and we miss him very much!




Bear Hankins

Bear loved food, his treat ball toy, the outdoors, or just being by our side. He was super smart, a little mischievous, and a great big bundle of joy! He was the best companion and made our family complete. He will be missed dearly.






Hazel Warner

Hazel was such a sweet girl. She made me a dog mom. She was a wild girl when she was younger but then calmed down to the perfect dog as she got older. She got to go on many adventures; camping to different states, the beach, lunch dates, lake days, visiting family and much more! We are all terribly sad that she got sick so quickly at just 10 years young. And we all miss her so much especially her 2 fursiblings.





Jazzy Mowery

Jazzy has been gone for a little over a week (1/13/2023). Our lives have been changed forever. She was a spunky bulldog with an attitude all her own. She was a member of our family for over 11 years and will be missed forever. We had a great experience with Peaceful Pet Passage. Our whole family was present when we said good bye and we never felt rushed. All our questions were answered. As a family we can not thank you enough.





Zoey Winn

Zoey came into my life at 6 months old. It seemed she was allergic to something where we adopted her from because her eyes were very closed, possibly swollen. Boy, were we surprised when that cleared up and these big beautiful eyes showed up. Zoey was always a funny girl... very vocal with the tiniest, sweetest voice. She had super tiny feet that she would paw you with and try to crawl up your back. She loved being petted especially at bedtime. She was not a lap cat, however, and hated being held. She loved you on her terms which suited me just fine. Zoey and I were together for over 15 years. She was my silly goose, my zo zo, and my friend.


Maddie Thomas

Maddie is a very special girl. She always met us at the door after work. Anywhere we were that is where she wanted to be too. We love and miss our sweet Maddie.












Brogan McDermott

In early June 2008, we went on a hunt to the Bedford County Humane Society with intentions of finding a puppy to call our own. Unknowing, we would stumble upon a full-grown dog with the biggest, most beautiful warm brown eyes staring at us through the bars of his cage. He was very thin, soiled, and we could tell he had not been cared for in his young life. As we learned more about him, the worker shared that this unfortunate dog had encountered a porcupine prior to being brought to their clinic and he had had quills throughout his entire face and mouth. They had performed surgery to remove what they could but he was going to need some very special attention in the coming days and months from whoever would adopt him. Well, right then, we knew that this dog had to be ours. His luck had just changed. We were the people meant to find him. We would take care of him and give him the love he deserved. We began the process immediately and adopted him that very next day and brought him to his new home. We decided his name would be Brogan. It didn’t take long for Brogan to settle into his new spoiled life at the center of our world as he healed and got healthy. He was a joyful and playful dog. In his early days, he would greet visitors with a big jump and sometimes his famous hound-like “howl”. He rarely barked. He went for daily walks on the leash but he preferred to lead the way. A run-free spirit at heart. He loved to flop down to get a good belly rub and adored every bit of the attention from neighbors, friends, and family. He was our one and only for two years and he thoroughly enjoyed being the “only child”. In April 2010, the world he knew was about to change. He was getting a little sister. He was inquisitive when we brought our first baby home; he welcomed and loved her just like we did; often joining me in the nursery while I rocked her to sleep. He was loyal and watchful. The perfect companion. Then, in May 2013, he got a brother, another baby in the house. Old hat for Brogey. He was happy to have another family member to love. Brogan loved being right in the family action. No surprise as he thought he was one of us. He joined in countless walks to the neighborhood park and went on many family road trips over the years. His ears always perked up at the word “car ride”. There was always a place in the car for Brogey to go along (even when we were packed full). On game nights, he would pop his head in to see what board game we were playing. During family movie nights, he made sure to get his share of the popcorn. Even though he had some Labrador in his blood, he was not a fan of swimming or bath time. He preferred to sunbath. Any opportunity to find a spot of sunshine, you could find him lying there soaking it up. He enjoyed a nice coating of fresh snow to frolic in too. He loved to sniff. Even in his old age, his nose never gave out. There was no crumb on the floor that could escape Brogey’s nose. He would surely find it. And, there was no doggie treat ever dismissed. Brogan was an incredible dog and member of our family for many years, truly irreplaceable. We are so thankful he shared his life with us. He taught our children the unconditional love that a dog can provide. It is difficult to digest that his time with us here has passed. However, we find comfort that we gave him a life of love and he is finally at peace and running free. Our memories of Brogan will live in our hearts forever. Rest easy our dear sweet Brogey. Please leave the porcupines alone. We love you always.

Billy Benkert

We had Billy for approximately 13 yrs and I don’t think that there was one person who had met him that didn’t fall in love with him. We would always greet our guest with something in his mouth, such as a shoe, blanket and there were even those few occasions where he gave our guest a beer. He was such a gentle soul who just loved all the attention he could get and would return that love ten fold back to you! You will be missed sweet boy 💔😢💔



Barney Taylor

We adopted Barney through Lucky Dog Animal Rescue, Arlington, Va. in 2011. They brought him to Va. from a “high kill facility” in South Carolina. From the day we picked him up, we were his and he was ours. We couldn’t imagine how he had ended up in such a terrible place. He was probably the most laid back and well behaved dog we ever had. He was everyone’s dog, quiet, gentle and accepting. He was good with everyone including kids and cats and other dogs. We couldn’t have asked for more. He was truly a love and we miss him every day. We are so grateful that he was saved by Lucky Dog and spent the rest of his life with us. He had a peaceful passage at home which was such a blessing to him and to us.





Scamp Kline

My daughters were just little girls and begged us to go into the pet store, so we reluctantly took them in. They noticed a playpen full of fluffy cream, colored dogs and very quickly the youngest daughter became interested in the little male dog chewing on one of the workers shoe laces. My daughter instantly knew that was the dog for her, and we reluctantly gave in after an hour of convincing. We took Scamp home, and he quickly became acquainted with the cats. We instantly knew we had made the right decision. The kids grew up and left home and Scamp became mom’s dog. He was her shadow. She couldn’t do anything without him right there by her side. Scamp was so stubborn, but also so sweet. He loved his walks. He loved going for golf cart rides at our beach house. When he would go for walks, he would literally prance down the sidewalk and look so majestic. He also loved his car rides with the whole family. He slept with mom and dad, and on cold nights right up against mom and dad. He loved playing with his furry cousin, and loved getting new toys on Christmas and a few here and there throughout the year. Scamp will be dearly missed. He was such a wonderful part of the family, and will forever be in our hearts.

Sedona Witmer

Here is our sweet crazy girl, Sedona with a Frisbee in her mouth with her Momma a few years ago. This is how we want to remember her, a bundle of energy, always wanting to play ball or Frisbee and would play until her tongue was on the ground. She couldn't get close enough to her humans and thought she was a lap dog, laying her head on your neck and nuzzling in to get as close as possible. If you sang to her, she would sing with you. No food was safe around her, she thought it was all for her. She is missed by her humans and her 4 legged friend Martin. She is with her Brothers, Momma, Grandma and kitty sister Cali now and I hope they are all playing and taking naps with each other. Thank you for helping us give her a peaceful transition from this world. 🙏




Seemore Webster

Seemore lived to be 22 years old, and never met a dog he didn't like!













Roby Sandoe

Roby (Row-be) Sandoe-Jacobs Roby was rescued from a shelter in Mechanicsburg in 2011. When we met he walked right over and started showing us, he wanted us to be his family and we really then didn’t have a choice. He was home with us in just a few hours from that meeting. And he would have been our choice any way, we knew he was going to fit in with us. We gave him just over 11 years of love and caring. He wasn’t real keen in 2015 when we introduced another rescue, his little brother Oscar. But after a few short weeks they were two peas in a pod, each zooming through the back yard and laying side by side in the grass on sunny days. He went through 2 moves with us and always adjusted and made home wherever he was, as long as he was with us, and beside us on the sofa. Your dads are really going to miss you our beautiful boy, and Oscar’s going to be ok and someday we’ll all be together again. Love you forever buddy.

Oreo Kornbau

I was able to drive up to see my Oreo’s final resting place. It is a very nice setting, hope to get up in the spring because I am sure it is even prettier when all the plants are in bloom. So glad this is available for those of us who live in apartments or have no one to ‘pass’ their ashes down to.














Dewy Borgel

This is our sweet Dewy who passed due to bone cancer just at 9 months of age. Dewy loved everyone he met and was always happy. He would greet us with a smile anytime we had been gone. He only had 9 months with us but he was given the best life by our 12 year old son who would take him on walks/runs or play in the yard. They loved snuggles on the couch. He was so loved & will be greatly missed!






Annie Martin

In memory of Annie
We lost our 'baby girl', 'princess' Annie on December 30, 2022. Annie was truly a gift and we miss her terribly! Annie was your typical golden retriever personality with her sweet, gentle nature. Annie loved her family and was so gentle with kids. Annie was also a 'foodie' and enjoyed mealtime and was right there if you were making a snack. Annie was always on duty 24/7/365 guarding her home and family. She was so funny with her antics! When she was young she loved playing 'laser' and chased that laser down like life as we know it depended on her catching it. Annie liked to watch TV and was a bit 'territorial' when animals on TV were 'in the room' - barking even at cartoon animals. When she was younger Annie gave the bunnies in the yard a run for their money. Once we had a very large groundhog considering making home in the yard but Annie would not allow it and the groundhog decided it best to find another place to live. Annie was a member of our family and my best bud; she was always at my side. We miss her terribly and were blessed to be able to love her for almost 11 years. Annie, until we meet again...




Sampson Riddle Bainbridge

About 2 weeks ago (12/29/2022) we said our goodbyes to Sampson. I adopted him as a senior and was lucky enough to have 6 years with him. I miss our long walks and cuddle sessions, and especially hearing the pitter patter of him sneaking into the kitchen to steal cat food. I’m thankful to Peaceful Pet Passage for helping his transition to be stress free, and for the compassion of the vet and staff.





Nemo Tabasko

It’s been one month (12/10/2022) without you and I think of you every day! I miss you when I wake up as I stumble through the morning routine and I miss you waiting for me at the door when I get home from work. I never dreamed I’d miss your barking as much as I do but the house feels quiet without it. I miss the zoomies, the stinky kisses, the Batman ears, the cuddles on the couch and the snoring…. I miss it all! I am grateful I had so much time with you and that I was able to let you go before you stopped being you. You will forever live in my heart and I hope to see you again on the other side. ❤️❤️❤️



Gomer Royce

Gomer came into our lives after retiring from his racing days in Florida. He was on the Nittany Greyhounds website and instantly he was part of our family. He was the fastest couch potato you ever did see, and would take all chances to steal his mom's blanket if she left it on the floor. He had a hard time picking between his 5 beds in the house or the couch on where to have his racing snooze. He made his racetrack around the yard where he frequently ran, and zoomies were a must when coming inside. He made friends with everyone who came to visit, even if they didn't want to be friends. He had the softest coat and was often called an imposter greyhound with how much hair he shed, and how soft it was. Gomer made it to 8 years before cancer took him too soon on 12/26/2022, but he made it the best 8 years he could. Gomer leaves behind a sad mom, dad, and brother. His toys and blankets live on with other dogs in an animal rescue his mom picked. We are thankful that Gomer is able to do his zoomies once again now that he has crossed the rainbow bridge, and know he is no longer in pain.

Eddie Shughart

From that day almost 16 years ago till just the 23rd of December 2022, Eddie was the most loving puppy. Eddie always wanted to meet people and put a smile on their face. I knew as we both aged that sooner or later I would have to say goodbye to my little buddy. I watched as my buddy began to have health issues and hoped that he would get better but we all know that never happens. I was blessed with 15 years of the greatest moments I could ever imagined with Eddie. From our early morning walks before going to work to the kisses he would give me while sleeping with us. Goodbye my little buddy.  You took a piece of my heart with you. Love and miss you always.


Charlie Bear Kline

It is with a heavy heart that I had to put down my last dog on Dec 15th, 2022. He was not just my dog but my best friend. When I was feeling depressed from prior losses or just the mood, he was there for me. So, I am here to honor my passing best friend. Charlie Bear Kline was born on May 13th, 2011. I picked him out of a litter of 3 a few weeks after he was born to allow the adjustment period from parents to home. He was so Tiny when I first got him per the pic. Then he slowly grew into a cute monster! Big rabbit paws, his head and body! He was such a mischievous dog during his youth! What made him unique was the Balloon Obsession (per pic ). He would not put it down till he was ready. Tried to take it away, he held onto it and wouldn’t let go!! He did slow down later in years, got very finicky with food and lost interest in chew and toys.. He took ownership of the couch instead of the floor but I was ok with that to help his body relax. The only thing he ever has ate in his final years was Milkbones, Glucose/condroitin chews, Grocery store White Meat Already made rotisserie chicken and McDonald’s plain/no salt Hamburgers! This dog ran my bank into the ground with his needs! I didn’t really care because it was for him. I’m deeply hurt and sad that he has moved on. I hope when it is my time we will be together again cause I miss him terribly. I probably won’t get another dog because I can’t deal with the pain nor want a dog to suffer a fate of loneliness when I go to work because it is just me. I miss you Charlie and loved you whole heartedly! 🙏😔🙏💔. Thank you for being a part of my life. May we meet again someday.

Milo Reeves

We got Milo in 2015. He was sweetest little puppy. He loved to sit outside on the deck in the sun and chase rabbits. He was a gentle old man in his old age but a few years back, when our youngest daughter was house sitting alone, Milo knew the people on the other side of the front door were not our friends and he ferociously let them know they were not welcome. If it wasn’t for him, they would’ve broken into our home. Milo made them think twice. He is our hero ❤️
