Somewhere Over The Rainbow...

Shane

Shane

(adopted 2005 from Shih Tzu Rescue)

Once in great while, a dog comes your way who really, really needs you. We were privileged to provide Shane with a home where he could feel safe and secure. We will never forget our little mister, with his soft, moon face; deep, expressive eyes, and a past in need of forgetting. We will always remember his excited, twirling dinner dance; his snoring, snuggling, and our family neighborhood walks. He made our lives better. We loved him dearly.

Tucker Rocky

Tucker Rocky

Our beloved Shih- Tzu, Tucker Rocky will be forever in our hearts. He graced our life with his truly unique and spunky presence for 13 1/2years. One of the best days of my life will be when we brought that little brown and black puppy home in the spring of March 1996. Having him in our life was pure joy and happiness. It's only been a week since he has left us and our hearts break to see his little face and hear his bark. Our home will never be the same without our beloved Tucker. Mommy and Daddy love and miss you with all our hearts Boo-Boo, till we meet again at the Rainbow Bridge.

Rita

Rita

Our Rita came to us trembling and so scared at age 10. I can't imagine someone giving up this gentle soul who had only love to give. She was the sweetest little girl, and would sit on your lap and stare right at you with those beautiful eyes. She was our little Princess and we cherished the 6 years she spent with us. We loved her dearly and miss her
so much. May she rest in peace in a beautiful place without thunder.

Brownie

Brownie

Of all the thorns I received from life. You only provided blooming petals. Never have you been a challenge, never have you been an ostacle, never have you caused distress or anguish or lack of love. For you have always been love. You have only shown love. You have only lived love

And the monstrosities of life only help me value the kindness in you. And only helps me to appreciate the kindness in me, and in all of us.

I am so in awe of your sweetness and how you have been there for me in such an unconditional way.

May I learn from your wisdom and partake in the same path of Kindness also.

Zorro, you're gone way too soon and will be greatly missed by all who knew you, championed your safety, loved your gentle spirit and mischievous begging stance that made us laugh out loud. May you be running in the clouds feeling all the goodness of heaven.

Mimi

Brownie

Mimi was my constant companion and was such a little trooper, going along willingly with my three moves to different homes back in Illinois and then driving across the center of the country to a new life in Florida. She never showed any hesitation when I packed her in the car for three days on the road and in hotels, or packed her on a carrier for a trip on a plane. Her very favorite activity was going for a ride in the wicker basket on my bike and riding down the road to visit her aunt Kim or the neighbors in our community.

She was always game for driving to the local Lowes or Homegoods, sitting quietly in the cart while I looked and shopped. The clerks and shoppers in the stores never failed to make a fuss over her and comment about how well-behaved she was in the stores. I miss her terribly and still can't believe that she is gone.

Beverly

Millie

Millie was more than a dog, she was a beloved family member. A family member who helped her "Mom" through some very difficult times. Millie was that special once in a lifetime dog. She will be missed beyond words. We trust she is in good hands in heaven happily waiting to see her "Mom" again. It is after all where such a special dog belongs!

Mylo

Mylo

Mylo came to Sandy 6 yrs ago as a foster only 2 yrs old. He had been abused, had terrible ear infections and was very aggressive. Sandy never gave up on him, showing him that humans can love as he became her first foster "failure".
I know Mylo knew how much Sandy loved him, he feels it even now as he waits at the bridge with Buster.

Lily Roma Lewis...1995(?) - Oct 11, 2011.
My baby girl was the most courageous living creature I have ever met...next to my Mom, who died of Ovarian Cancer at the age of 40, Rosemary (whom she was named after). I rescued her from a puppy mill in Illinois. She was 5-8 yrs old & in deplorable condition. She had hardly any hair & what hair she did have was yellow from excrement. She weighed 3 lbs & had rocks in her stomach, that she'd eaten for food.From the first day she smelled the fresh air she was full of happiness, sunshine & laughter.I miss her dearly...but even now, as I write this, she still brings a smile in my soul.

Patrick

Patrick

Patrick Raymakers Copley, 10/24/1995 - 02/07/2013, lived with his family for almost 17 love filled years. He was a very good, sweet boy who loved furry pillows, his brother Benjamin and his best friends Ricky and Riley. He was the happiest little dog in the entire world who would prance when he walked, putting a smile on everyone's face. He was a great singer and dancer and loved to give kisses. His favorite time of the day was bedtime when he would get on the big bed, he would get so excited he would almost burst! He loved coming to Palm Beach for the winters as he didn't like snow or the cold and he didn't have to wear sweaters all of the time. He will greatly missed by everyone, especially by Rob and Ray who loved him very, very much and in whose hearts his memory will remain forever. He is at the Rainbow Bridge with Sammy, Miss Hannah, Susie and Ricky.

Sir Marlee

Had my precious Sir Marlee lived two more months he would have been 17 today. I brought him home when he was 5 1/2 weeks old. He gave me almost 17 years of unconditional love, sharing many sorrows, health crises, and other difficulties and always being there to bring me joy and often laughter. He was beautiful and had a beautiful personality to match. I am grateful to God and to Marlee for almost 17 wonderful years.

Gloria

Zackman & Emma

Zack & Emma

They were 14 years young, brother and sister. He looked like Wolfman Jack...so he naturally became Zackman. Emma was a real "spark plug"...she would snort when she was happy and really protected her brother. Zack could work a party like no one you ever saw: he would go up to an unsuspecting person, and stand on his haunches and just stare with those beautiful eyes. They are so special and I'm sure are at the Rainbow bridge waiting. I miss them so.

Diva, mon doudou, today would have been your 10th birthday if this terrible disease, hemolytic anemia did not take you away, so far away over the rainbow bridge just a month ago. We are so lost without you. On this day, we only want to remember how beautiful you were, a sweet, happy, funny, lively little shih Tzu girl who loved so much riding on the bike basket, boating, meeting people and always picking the plushiest cushion to curl up. Thank You Diva, for these years of pure love. We'll cherish your memory forever.

Bento

Bento

This tribute is for Bento and the kind hearted people who loved him and took him home from a cardboard box outside a grocery store 12 years ago. Bento was more then a dog- he was a beloved family member with a wardrobe and personal chef to prove it. Bento lived a long and happy life and was as spoiled as all dogs dream. Bento enjoyed travelling to national parks, watching basketball ( he was a Clippers fan and also a distant relative of Jeremy Lin's dog Spinee). His favorite meal was duck- although in-n-out and dark meat chicken and rice were also enjoyed on many occasions when duck was scarce. Bento is survived by his constant companion Kelly. Who is likely the most awesome dog Mama in the world. Our hearts go out to her and her family during this difficult time. Bento will be dearly missed. RIP Bento

A beautiful, humble human being, Eunice was a dear friend of a treasured friend of Shih Tzu Rescue & Harriet & Eric, Sue Landon. We are honored to post her memorial.

Trouble

Trouble

Trouble,my wonderful male Shih Tzu, was with us for 17 years. He and his half sister, Brandy, (who we lost 2 years before), were members of our family and had us well trained. He had a wonderful personality and made us laugh continuously. There is definitely a part of my heart that he took with him. I will miss him forever.

Karen

William

William

This past Saturday, October 25, our beloved little dog, William went to wait for me at the Rainbow Bridge. He was 17, and the years had begun to rapidly take their physica1 toll though his spirit never waned for an instant. William's vet told me a few months ago to begin preparing myself for the inevitable but even with this warning, and knowing that his life had been a long one filled with love and companionship, it still was one of the most difficult and emotional experiences I have ever gone through in my 54 years. When he departed this life, he went as he lived, quietly, without fuss or bother, and surrounded by his family, knowing even with his final breath that he was deeply loved and cherished. William came to us as a rescue, but right now I would be hard-pressed to say exactly who rescued who. Though he loved his family all, and was in turn equally loved by all, it was common knowledge that I had a special bond with him. My constant companion, he never willingly left my side, even when walking had become almost too much-tor him to bear. Now there is such a void where he used to be and I know, while time might dull the emptiness I now feel, it will never subside completely. His paw prints will remain on my heart for the rest of my life. I read one time that Mongolians believe that when a dog is absolutely the best dog he can be, that dog will return again as a human. I'm not sure why Mongolians believe a dog would consider this a desirable reward but they do. If they are right, William will be back again, this time walking on two legs.. He was absolutely the best dog a dog could or can even hope to be. The grief I'm now feeling is tempered by the knowledge that I was extraordinarily lucky in having him as my best friend for so long. There will never be another like him. So, with that I would like to donate the enclosed, in William's name, for your most worthy efforts on behalf of these wonderful little companions in the hope that it might help someone to one day find a best friend, just as I found William, or he found me.

Sincerely,

Guy E. Lounsbury

We love you, Lily, and we thank you for loving us...for making us laugh with your silly and funny ways of doing things, for the kisses on the bad days, and your wagging welcome - every time we came through the door. There will never be another one of you... and how lucky are we that you were here with us. I know Dad (Funpa) was there to greet you and probably give you more treats than you could have possibly imagined (he was always good for that!). You brought so much joy to our lives and we are forever blessed that God chose us for you... I rescued you, but indeed, YOU rescued me.... xoxox Love Always to You My Sweet Pretty Little Girl.

Cara

Chewy

chewy

My stepdad had a fiesty, spirited shih tzu named Chewy. She was a tough, little dog. She wandered the rooms of my parents house with purpose - patrolling, on the look out with a jaunty walk and a swish of her tail. But she loved Gary and my mom fiercely. Never was there a dog that was better cared for than Chewy. She always had a warm lap to sleep in, a biscuit or lick of ice cream and someone to pet her. Though she is patrolling the grounds of heaven now, her time in heaven began on Earth with the most loving home a dog could dream of..
