Cannon Knox, February 2008 - March 29, 2017

Cannon was a pure wolf, one of the most beautiful animals it has been my privilege to know. He was taken far too soon leaving us all heartbroken. His soulful eyes, high fives, and kisses will be missed until I cross the bridge myself.
To say I love you doesn't come close my "Baby Boy."
We all miss you more than words.

Cassidy, 1998 - 01/05/2017

I rescued Cassidy in 2001 after she had delivered a litter of kittens and was found as a stray. She was such an affectionate little girl. At the adoption event when her cage was opened for me, she jumped into my arms and wrapped her short little legs around my neck. That was it. She was a feisty girl and approached life on her own terms. She respected the alpha status of her older sibling, Boomer, a huge brown tabby, but she didn't take any gruff from him! Cassidy had the knack of finding the most cuddly, soft, out-of-the-way spots to make her little "nests." I sometimes found her sitting in silk flower arrangements, or on top of two oven mitts stacked on top of each other. She also loved clean (and dirty) laundry piles. She was a wonderful companion. She came when I called her, and always greeted me at the door after a long day. Cassidy always had a clean bill of health when we went for her annual check-ups. She was a hardy girl. But, in November, 2015, she was diagnosed with renal failure. This broke my heart. But, I was up for the challenge, and so was she. We immediately began fluids, and a few medications to keep symptoms at bay. She was such a good patient. She didn't always appreciate the needle pick, but we got through it with treats. Pretty soon, she would camp out in front of the bathroom, just waiting for the "treat experience." The last year was tough on my girl. Despite her willingness to go along with what was necessary, she developed a condition called megacolon. This made it more difficult for her to defecate due to low motility. Soon she stopped eating altogether. It was with a broken heart that I made the difficult decision to say goodbye to my sweet girl on 01/05/2017. Rest in peace, my angel. I will always love you.

Charlie, March 1, 2003 - January 14, 2017

To Beloved Charlie

You’re not on the other side of the door waiting for me when I come home,
But you are.
You’re not lying right up against the bedroom door while I sleep,
But you are.
You’re not lying outside the shower while I shower, lapping up the water that seeps under the door,
But you are.
You’re not in the middle of the kitchen floor while we’re cooking,
But you are.
You’re not under the dining room table while we’re eating,
But you are.
You’re not lying in the sun on the balcony,
But you are.
You’re not by my side as I walk down the street,
But you are.
You’re not in the back of the car when I run errands,
But you are.
You are everywhere. You’re in my thoughts, and in my memory, forever occupying  the places that you used to be, and you will be in my heart forever. 

Chucky, 03/31/2000 - 02/04/2017

Cats leave paw prints on our lives and our souls, which are as unique as fingerprints in every way.”  Thank you Chucky for the years of joy you brought to our lives.  Each morning I wake up and forget that you are no longer here and then I realize my worst fear is true. I miss you walking on and plopping yourself down on my newspaper just as I decided to read it.  I miss you snubbing the bed that I so carefully made for you only for you coming back later acting as if it was your idea all along.  I miss you poking me on the arm when you decided that you want my attention even though it often felt like daggers piercing my skin.  I also remember you venturing out of your comfort zone to comfort me when I was sad. Some of my favorite memories ar our trips to Petsmart. You sat in the cart like a little prince. I remember you jumping ship (the cart) and running behind the displays.  I had to crawl on my hands and knees to catch your silly little self.  My favorite is when you jumped onto the conveyor belt at the checkout and walked straight down to the cashier.  You were one of a kind and can never be replaced. Your (Boxer/Pit Bull) brother Duke has a void in his heart since you left. Duke continually looks for you in all of your usual places.  He has not been the same since.  Your life was a blessing, your memory a treasure. You are loved beyond words and missed beyond measure. Every day, in some small way, memories of you come our way. Though absent, you are ever near, still missed, still loved, and ever dear. Chucky you are in our hearts forever and will never be forgotten.


Your mom and dad (Jon and Maria Bunger), your sisters Kaitlyn and Maddy, your brothers Duke, Brian, Big Joey, Mike and Little Joey and your grandparents Rosanne and Pete

Cody, 1/23/2017 - 4/6/2017

Dear, adorable, sweet, little Cody:

Even though God only gave us a few days with you, you brought Keith, Sam and I so much joy.  We loved you very much and we hope you felt our love for you in those few days we had with you.  You will always be a part of our family, and I hope you are playing with Gumby, Pokey, Gibby and Mickey right now until we can meet you again at the Rainbow Bridge and cross it together.  Thank you for all the laughter and joy you gave to us.  We only wish we had so much more time to spend with you here.  We will be with you again, so play and be happy until we meet again.  We love you, angel dog Cody.

Colby, July 18, 2002 - June 23, 2017

Colby was my best friend for nearly 15 years.  He was well mannered and affectionate.  He would go on my sidecar with me, on the boat, camping and exploring Nevada.  He was spoiled and had a great adventurous life.  He never missed a meal, slept outside or was ever hit.  He was loved by all and I am broken and will miss him terribly.  See you on the other side, Colby.  I will love you forever...

Cooper Connor, 02/21/2017


When we first saw each other at the shelter, we knew we were meant to be together. The joy you felt in your new home was matched only by the joy you brought into our lives. We shared so many wonderful experiences together - chasing rabbits, exploring deer trails, burger night, and so much more.  You filled our hearts with love and you will always reside there.  We will never forget you.  Wait for us.

Mama and Daddy
and Jon
