We remember our pet companions. SHARE YOUR MEMORIAL TRIBUTE
WE REMEMBER CINNAMON GIRL Friday, January 11, 2013 was the most difficult day for our family as we lost our little Cinnamon Girl.  Cinnamon or as the lovely staff at Skycrest called her… "Cinnie Minnie" is terribly missed.  Although she fought very hard, my poor little girl couldn't survive the diabetes she was diagnosed with in August, 2012.  For the 10 ½ fabulous years we had her, she was the best companion our family could ask for.  She was very friendly, always giving everyone kisses and LOVED to play ball.  She loved her brothers and sister and definitely was the leader of the pack. There will never be a day that goes by that we won't think of our Cinnamon Girl… We love you and miss you very much XOXO We extend our sincere gratitude to Dr. Wojcik and Dr. Shears for your utmost CARE and COMPASSION for Cinnamon. You ladies are truly the best.   Roni & Al De Mell
WE REMEMBER MISSEY-LYNN RINDER   2005 - 2012 Missey-Lynn you came to us so unexpectedly after losing our Suzie-Sue, and little did we know you would leave the same way. You were the light of our lives, you made us a family, and me a mommy. You were so full of life, playing, watching TV, going to visit Brandie-Sue and grandmother in Wisconsin. You loved going to the " pretty lady" for grooming, or to see your favorite doctor, Dr. Wojcik. You were our pride and joy, pretty, smart, playful, winning numerous contests, and even being on television. What more could we ask of you. You were daddy's pride and joy, even when he got sick, he still got on the floor to play with you. You were also very intuitive, the night daddy left, when the paramedics came, you stayed quietly in your crate, somehow knowing, something was terribly wrong. In the months that followed you never left mommy's side, often cuddling on the couch, licking away mommy's tears. You were my constant companion, and you gave me the strength and courage to continue on. When grandmother got sick, you went with me to the Rehab Center, where everyone would stop to pet you, and you loved all the attention. Grandmother was always happy when we visited, you brought a smile to her face. She would tell everyone this is " Mishka", a smart sheltie. When Grandmother left, you sensed how sad I was, you were right there, looking at me with your soulful eyes, licking the tears away once again. You helped me get through another set of dark dark days. You gave me the hope, courage and strength to go on. You with your beautiful face, a sparkle in your eyes, happy and playful, what more could I ask for. You seemed to say, mommy and Missey, we will get through this together. But that was not to be, on October 28, 2012, you got sick. The twinkle was gone from your eyes, you were pacing back and forth, you were not yourself. Even though I took you to a specialist, I was told, you were very sick. and probably not recover. My beautiful Missey, how could this have happened, mommy needed you. As I watched you the next week, I knew the little girl, with unlimited energy, a happy face, and a twinkle in your eyes, was slowly leaving. I tried everything to make you better, but I knew it was time for you to join your daddy, Brandie- Sue, Suzie, and Grandmother. Your work was done, I needed to let you go. It broke my heart, but I will never forget the love and devotion you gave. You were such a happy dog, full of energy, life, and love. Mommy will always love you, " Kocham Cie".    ~ Danitta Rinder
WE REMEMBER HOMER Time heals but it does not make us forget. Homer was the love of our lives. He brought such an extraordinary feeling of happiness and joy to all who had known him. From his crazy puppy antics: chewing off Barbie heads, eating jewelry beads and having it show up later (you know where), or having eaten a 1/4 of a Frisbee, with Dr Radar and I just staring at that piece of plastic trying to figure out what it was! To his loving, sweet nature: finding a baby bunny in the yard and dropping it when told to, ever so gently, without hurting it. To his loyalty of knowing when one of his family members was having a bad day, he would rest his head on an arm, leg or stomach and comfort one us.  Then it was our turn to comfort our Homer or as Dr. Shears called him, Home Biscuit. August 27, 2013 was the absolute hardest day for our family. I will never forget the look on Homer's face when he was brought into our room, almost as if he knew our sadness. His tail thumped ever so slightly, to assure us he knew we cared. I take comfort in knowing that Homer is free from pain and is running around somewhere, creating havoc, joy and happiness with other beloved pets. RIP Homer. You will always be remembered and forever be loved. "A dog is the only thing on Earth that loves you more than you love yourself.”
WE REMEMBER LITTLE SPROUT  Little Sprout -- she was small but had a BIG presence in our hearts and home. Thank you to the staff at Skycrest for caring for our dear little girl.   Our thanks to John & Barbara Breitsameter for this memorial tribute WE REMEMBER CALLAWAY (CAL)  Cal was our heart dog. The happiest dog I have ever known. When she suddenly became ill, we came to Skycrest from a referral from the BG Specialty Center. We needed a new primary care DVM and the Specialty Center steered us in the right direction. The Vets and staff gave her excellent care during her battle with cancer. I cannot say enough good things about the wonderful staff that work there. Cal lived 11 months -- quality time too because of the care she received at Skycrest -- thank you!  Our thanks to John & Barbara Breitsameter for this memorial tribute
WE REMEMBER MAX Max came to us as a lost puppy 12 & 1/2 years ago. He turned out to be one of the greatest blessings of our lives. He was my best friend, my confident,my consoler when I was sad or sick. He will be a part of my life forever. Skycrest started taking care of him from 4 weeks until the very end and I will always be so grateful for the love and care they showed him. I know that Max is on the rainbow bridge with our other dog Rambo that we had for 15 years thanks to the wonderful care of Skycrest. I will see both of them again. I love you My Baby Boy!!    Kathy Hoss
