Andy and his family would like to thank Deceased Pet Care for their love and support. Anyone with pets sees the joy they bring to us day after day. I have come to realize that our four legged friends know "the secret" and that is why why have such short lives. They already know what it takes a human a lifetime to learn-unconditional love.

To our Gracie:

  It was 15 ½ years ago that I answered my phone and heard the sweetest words ever: “Got cha a dawg.” My sister-in-law called to tell me a co-worker had a litter and she had picked out one for me. My girl was more than a canine companion. She was my heart. Gracie calmly watched my manic home improvement projects. She tolerated it when I would pick her up to dance to the theme song from Allie McBeal [though I think she enjoyed the country music and Texas two-step more]. The night my mother passed away, my girl moved from her spot at the foot of the bed to snuggle up against me. She turned ferocious the night a homeless man tried to make a bed on our front steps. Gracie loved to swim and she was a fabulous camping and hiking partner. No trip was complete unless she found some mud for rolling. Gracie had a growth that was bleeding, making her very, very anemic. There was nothing to be done. So for her last two weeks of her life, my sweet potato dined on roasted chicken, liver, scrambled eggs, hot dogs, hamburgers and – her favorite – Friskies cat food. And on her last night with me, I made two pallets on the floor, one for her and one for me. This time I snuggled up against her just like she did to me the night I lost my mom. I am certain that dogs have souls and she is with my mom, our two cats and my friend, Rochelle, right now. Gracie’s knees are normal and she’s not tired any more. I miss her but I know I'm lucky she found me.
