We are grateful to Dr. Annie and the counseling she provided as we struggled with our decision, and to the staff at HPE for their caring and compassion.  Allowing a furry family member to pass peacefully at home is truly a gift. Thanks again for caring, and for the difficult work that you do, which means so much to pet parents like ourselves.

We knew Spot and his brother Bandit from the day they were born in 1997, and they shared their entire lives with us.  We lost Bandit in 2011, and would never dream that we'd have nearly another six years with Spot, who lived to the ripe old age of 19.  Caring for him towards the end was difficult, but he enriched our lives in so many ways, and lived his life with a fierce determination that was inspirational.  

Losing Spot has been one of the most painful things we've had to endure. It was extraordinarily difficult, in ways I hadn’t even imagined.  We move on, as we must, but the tears still flow when I think of him, and what a void his passing has left in our lives. Till we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge . . .

What a beautiful way to honor Spot, to keep his memory alive, and to recognize the grief we experience when we lose our furry family members. I'm picturing Spot, Bandit, Jazz, Dodger, and our Donna and Shelby having a great time together over the Rainbow Bridge. "Dogs are not our whole life, but they make our lives whole!" Mike and Sue, thank you for this invitation to light a candle!
Spot we will miss you at all the family parties. You gave your family a lot of love. We will miss you.
I still ache from the loss of my boyhood dog ... so I understand your loss. I am very sorry.
Spot will always be in our hearts. Fond memories.
When I think of Spot, I think, "Little Trooper". He was a tough little guy and we will miss him forever when visiting our best friends, Mike and Sue. Till we meet again, "Little guy"
We are honored to light a candle for Spot! He will be missed! How blessed you both are to have those 19+ years with him. Lots of good memories!
Spot was a happy precious dog. He is with my little Chester.
Spot's always in my heart.
So much unconditional love given to and given from. -- miss you little guy --
Rest In Peace sweet little Spot..such a special and very loved little pup!
Spot has left a SPOT in our heart. RIP little buddy
Spot as well as Bandit were very important to you and your lives. Dogs hold a very special place in your hearts and always will. They are our children who we love, try to teach and in return they give us unconditional love. Remember all the good times with each of them. They will always hold a very special place in your heart.
Love you...sweet little Spot!
I miss you sweet little man. Get some rest in heaven.
See you soon sweet prince. There will never be another love like you.
Spot, I'm very sorry for your having to leave the humans you loved for so long. I know that you are happy and healthy now, and are still wagging your furry tail at your humans. Thank you for all you gave while you were here. You were their light for a long time and are so very missed.
oh, ♥Mike and Sue♥ I am truly sorry for your loss. Please always remember that you gave ♥Bandit and Spot♥ the best lives possible on this earth. I understand the hole in your hearts. My hope is that it will be replaced with loving memories. Hugs to you both, Angela
For our dear sweet baby boy . . . love you forever.
