In Memoriam – Lucky Rainey

March 23rd, 2019 by Laurie Brush

Lucky’s Story:
Lucky (aka Our Doofy) was adopted from Ionia Animal Shelter. We met Lucky after a couple dogs and fell for him immediately. We believe he truly appreciated being brought into a loving home and being treated as a family member. He let the kids do whatever with him. He was always physically close to us…had to follow us into any part of the house. He came out to the dog run and watched us as we drove away and slept by the door so he could greet us when we got home. He LOVED his family and we LOVED him. He should have lived longer than 14 years. He was strong and fit. A tumor the size of a chickpea on his spine was the culprit.

Thank you Dr Tay and Kathryn for your compassion and letting us say good-bye to Lucky the way we intended…at home, on his bed, with his family.

There is a void in our hearts and home. We miss you so much, Lucky, and love you even more. We know Grandma is taking care of you, boy.


In Memoriam – Delilah

Deliah’s Story:
My dog, Delilah, was 17 years old. She had a bright and loving Spirit, but her body was old and giving out on her. We had to make the decision to let her go. She was a Corgi/Sheltie mix. She was, without a doubt, the sweetest dog EVER.

I found this quote in a book by Dr. Charlene M. Proctor. It has helped me; maybe it will help someone else:

My Pet knows that I am responsible for choosing the quality of its life. My love for this animal extends beyond any physical boundaries because love is forever. Therefore, my Pet and I exist forever. I trust that we will be together on the other side someday, and this parting is only temporary. I release this animal to the caretakers of its Spirit and trust that she is in a wonderful and peaceful place.

Dr. Brush and Mary in the office, were kind, understanding and compassionate. Their guidance and help during a difficult time was very much appreciated.


In Memoriam – Brody Morrison

Brody’s Story:
We adopted Brody from the Humane Society of West Olive in Michigan around nine years ago. We did a meet and greet with him in one of the Humane Society’s private offices after finding him online. They let him into the room and immediately he started running around, peeing on everything and trying to get away. It wasn’t until I had my wife leave the room, to go get another dog we were interested in, that Brody began to sell himself as though this was his last chance to get adopted. He sat for me. He laid down on command. I stuck my head out of the office and told my wife to come back. We fell in love in an instant.
Brody became best friends with our older dog Byron, and later with our newer dog Whiskey. The three have been inseparable since. Each dog had its own personality but Brody’s was mysterious. He liked playing with everyone but loved his alone time to sit outside in the sun and just be by himself.
We will miss Brody and all the love he has given throughout his life. We hope to see you once again when we can all run free in heaven together. We love you Brody.
