Dear Dr. Annie,

Though I'm sad and tremendously heartbroken over the loss of my special friend, Zoe, I can tell you that I'm so glad to have met you.  Your energy is pure and kind and I can tell, 100%, that you find sincere purpose in helping people get through difficult times. You far exceeded any hope I might have had. I can't thank you enough for being so patient and loving to us, and for showing us an immense kindness as we said goodbye to our baby girl. As corny as it may sound, you really do seem like an angel to me. I'm so glad our paths crossed.

Zoe was the light of our life, a once-in-a-lifetime kind of girl. It's so quiet and different now without her.

We received Zoe's ashes and we've had a lot to process after their arrival. It's so strange to have had our home filled with Zoe's spirit and love and playfulness for the past six years and then to have that completely vanished. I know that she was in pain, and definitely suffering--and that, with your help, we were able to "gift" her peace; however, her physical disappearance from our home is difficult to adjust to.

One wonderfully special thing is that we got to take Zoe to the ocean, a place she'd never been, but definitely deserved to, being that she was a water-loving doggy. She had such a fun day running and playing on the beach, barking at birds, digging up old rocks, and snacking on a bone on our big blanket we had laid out. I can still remember how her fur glistened from the water and sunshine. I remember how she felt and how her breath smelled and how her eyes looked back at me. I hope these vivid memories never fail me and that I'm able to call upon them for the rest of my life.

Thank you again for absolutely everything.

With love,

Jamie Flaugher


Friends who remember Zoe...

I love you, Zo. Think of you often. I have a hooman baby now! You’d have a lot of fun together ;) Missing you…
Lots of love ❤️
Hello, Zoepo. You are still loved and missed. So very loved, my dear girl. Thank you for your gifts. ----
Hello, love. It's been a good couple of days. I waited in hopes that the party has died down a bit. I must admit, I haven't risen to your standards. Life has been a little bit challenging. I don't really know what is wrong with me. Zoe, I threw your tiny urn in anger several months ago and I cannot find it now. I found the quartz and the necklace that your Mom got for me but I cannot find you. I find I hold my breath a lot... Speaking of her.. I took her to LA those many years ago to show her where I got better. We visited the rock and we walked up to the eye of the Eagle and took pictures and everything. It was just terrific. But now, Z, I am so very regretful to share that I have wasted it. Your mom and I... she is gone. I took her to where I got better. But maybe I just wasn't. I miss you. Yes, I miss you but don't worry. Whom you sent is here; she knows when I need her. She uses all of her 144lbs to steady my heart before it ruptures. Last Friday was our 17yr anniversary. It was a beautiful full moon that evening. It took all of my entire soul not to reach out... but she is happy now. She has a very kind man with her who offers things that I couldn't. So I am coming here to ask a bit of a favor. Can you help me move onward? At least, explain the dreams a bit more? I don't understand them. I don't understand what each of the schools teach. Why am I there and why can't I get there on time? Lastly, I will become whatever I will be; but, please, watch over her. She's different. She comes alive in the darkness. It's when she is left to battle herself that she needs your heavy lean. Show up where I cannot. Love you ZP. Always.
Zoe you are still missed so very much, and now your two sisters have joined you. Mom and dad hearts have been so broken, not just once but three times. I hope you all three are running and playing together and having a wonderful time. I love and miss you all so very much. You will never be forgotten!
I didn’t get the pleasure to know you but definitely have heard a bunch about you. Your caretakers are very thankful to have had you in their life and they tremendously miss you. Hope your having fun in puppy heaven!
<3 always
Sweet Zoe ❤️

Today is difficult. It's been a year and I still think about you everyday. I am sad but also grateful. Only when you left did I realize that you were/are my teacher. I am humbled, honored, and still learning your lessons. If your soul finds its way back to our little rock, come find me so I can show you. You'll be so proud of me. I love you massively.
Feeling your squishy lips. Smelling your tummy. Loving you.
Thinking of you.
Dear Jamie and Nathaniel, Zoe was "blessed" to be loved by a compassionate and loving Couple whom I admire and love so much! We are so sorry for your loss and we know how much she will be missed but your beautiful, heartfelt memories will remain......Always!
I am just a little boy who really doesn't understand all the bad stuff that goes on in life but, I do know that my Aunt Jamie and Uncle Nathaniel are two of the sweetest and most loving people that I know. I know how very much they loved Zoe and Zoe could not have had a more loving mommy and daddy. She was a special dog, I loved running and playing with her she was my buddy. I still ask about her and don't understand where she has gone. Love you Zoe !
Losing a fur baby is always so tough... somehow they take a little piece of our hearts each time they go. :o( I often wonder if that's why so many pet owners have such big ones! I have only come to know about your Zoe because I purchased one of your Whispher Amps, but I know she was very loved and will be missed for a lifetime... until you are reunited at the Rainbow Bridge. (I've included the story below in case you haven't read it.) I am so sorry for the loss of your sweet Zoe!! "There is a bridge connecting Heaven and Earth. It is called the Rainbow Bridge because of its many colors. Just this side of the Rainbow Bridge there is a land of meadows, hills and valleys with lush green grass. When a beloved pet dies, the pet goes to this place. There is always food and water and warm spring weather. All the animals who have been ill and old are restored to health and vigor; those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind. They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. Her bright eyes are intent; her eager body begins to quiver. Suddenly she begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, her legs carrying her faster and faster. You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart. Then you cross the Rainbow Bridge together, never again to be separated."
I've just saw her pictures... lovely dog! bye bye Zoe!
Rest in peace little one, find my dog Boikey up there and run around with him for me! <3
I am so very sorry to hear about Zoe Po. Just recently I lost my 7 year old cat and the hole he left still smacks me every day. He made me a better person and I am sure you feel the same. I feel your loss and wish you the best in dealing with it. I also want to thank you because using your whisper amp has helped me play very loudly in close space with those who would never tolerate me using my amp. My sincerest condolences.
Keep the memories that made you smile the closest to your heart. That bond will last forever.
I came here via your kickstarter e-mail. you´re story really touched me. rest in peace dear ZOE.
Dear Zoe, I’ve been putting this off. I hope you understand why. Thinking about you is tough. Writing about and to you is much the same. Nevertheless, you deserve a positive Nate because that is one of the things you taught me — to be positive. So with a heavy but hopeful heart, I recall not the day we lost you but the day we found you and the space between… All of that wonderfully abundant and love-filled space between. Zoe, I loved you the moment we met. I was a new puppy Dad as I swaddled you in my jacket when we found you in that parking lot. You were a tiny thing with big blue puppy eyes, warm black fur and an enormous spirit. I loved the way you took nibbles of french fries for the first time and the way you scarfed them down every time after. I loved the way you would drag my shoes into your tiny bed and when you heard a kind but stern, “no no”, the way you looked over your shoulder at me with that awfully guilty but wonderfully adorable stare as if to say, “I’m sorry but your shoes remind me of you.” You melted me, Zoe. I loved the way you would lay by the fireplace and watch the flames so full of wonder and gratitude; I would stare at you feeling the same. I loved that you loved car rides and strolling through the pet store. I loved that you picked out your own toys with a nudge of the nose and a happy gaze upwards saying, “This is the one!” and then you would carry it all the way to check out. I loved the way you knew when I was sad even if I wasn't near you. You would find me and sit on my lap so I could wrap my arms around your big trunk and press my face against your fur. I loved your “library woofs” and your giant howls and the fact that there was no in between. I loved all of you, Zoe, but most of all I loved that you loved me. You warmed me up and shaped me into a better human being. Despite you saying so little you taught me a whole lot and I am forever grateful. Those 2,176 days with you were the best days of my life. I love you, Zoe Po. -Dad
You are forever loved.
