In Memorium of Bear

April 7th, 2016 by Heaven At Home Staff
It is with the heaviest of hearts that we share the passing of our beloved Bear, Bearinga, Bear Soup, Bearcephus…. after Degenerative Myelopathy and a necrotic mass became too difficult for his day to day.
He was born in July of 2000 and lived to a ripe age of 15.5, the last 3+ years of which we got to be his people. He enjoyed car rides with the windows down, romping through the woods, face plowing in the snow, the occasional game of frisbee and curling up on blankets at home. More than anything he liked treats – Peanut Butter, Beggin’ Poppers and mom’s molasses crinkle cookies.
Bear is survived by his mom and dad, Megan and Garrett, his feline sisters ‘the sandbox people’ Abbey and Tygrr, his new little sister Evelyn, his girlfriend Zoe from his last stay at the Pets Hotel and his imaginary friends Moose and Gonzalez from his job as delivery car cleanup at Little Caesars.
Bear is ever grateful to Grandma & Grandpa Albro for his endless supply of bandana bling and Grandpa & Grandma Emery for sneaking him deer jerky(and other meaty treats) and letting him relax at an amazing vacation place on the lake.
Some of Bear’s fondest memories include a road trip to South Carolina with his mom, ear rubs from his dad, falling butt first into the tide on Lake Michigan and sunning himself with a Chewbone in the backyard.
In lieu of flowers and milkbones, Bear would like you to adopt a senior pet from your local shelter.
He had the purest, sweetest soul and holds an irreplaceable place in our hearts. We will see you at the rainbow bridge, buddy. Look over us in our first night in the house without you. Love You.

On September twenty-fourth, the Huyge Family said goodbye to their life-long friend Zoe, who was a playful yellow lab mix. Zoe raised both the Huyge children, Alex and Megan, into adulthood. Alex was in second grade when the family adopted their furry friend. Zoe lived to be sixteen years old, a very long and joyous life with the Huyge’s. Zoe’s will be forever remembered in the happy memories the Huyge’s carry in their hearts.

Smokey was a twelve year old domestic medium hair cat who was loved until her last day by her owner, Lenny, who sent us this memorial:

Smokey was my first pet. I remember her at six weeks old, feeling her breath on my hand, wondering if I would be able to protect that fragile life. And twelve years later the frustration of being helpless with the oral cancer diagnosis. She was sort of a one man horse in that I was the only person she would allow to handle her. She was unique. She was ornery from the day she was born but had a personality I admired. Others will remember her hiss and snarl but I’ll see her joy in finding that perfect patch of sun heated sand to roll in.

I just want to thank you again for coming to our house and putting our dog Kelsey to rest. I can’t tell you how much we appreciated you and your bedside manner. It was a very special experience that we will always remember. Thank you again.

Compassionate home care for your companions!
