Cat: Murphy (Apr 18, 2009 – Aug 6, 2014)

It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of Murphy Holbrook crossing over the Rainbow Bridge on August 6, 2014 resulting from a suspected undetected brain aneurysm. Murphy was born on April 18, 2009 to his mother Sonnrae Maslow’s Mystikal Jynx and father Iceblupalace Smoke Deez Nutz at the Pawz in the Sand Cattery in Memphis, TN.

He was adopted by the Holbrook’s at the age of five weeks then resided at his home in Kingsport, TN for the entire duration of his life where he graciously allowed his human companions to live (with the understand they would provide plenty of food and warm places to nap).

Pet Cat: Toby (Short Hair Tabby)
Cat: Toby (Short Hair Tabby) Etobicoke – Ontario, Canada (Mar 1, 1998 – Jan 28, 2014)

I will remember Toby and how he came into our lives. While in a room filled with kittens, trying to decide which one we shall take, this one handsome boy came across the room, climbed on top of my foot, plonked his little bottom and looked up at me at mewed. That was it, the decision was made.

Our little man was born March 1, 1998, and suddenly without any pre-signs or warnings, he left us on January 28, 2014.

Pet Dog: Spike (English Bulldog)
Dog: Spike (English Bulldog) – Gibraltar, UK (Jul 27, 2011 – Jun 30, 2014)

Spike was a rescue dog which I adopted from a shelter when he was 11 months old. He had been neglected, was 10 kilos underweight and had very bad skin issues. He also had cherry eyes which he was operated soon after I bought him home, the operation was a success.

Since the day I bought him home I knew I had made the right decision. Spike was the most adorable dog a family good have.

Sadly Spike died of sudden congenital heart failure which I didn’t know he had. Since his death I have been lost without him as he was my best friend, my companion, my all.

Rip Spike – love you!!


Pet Dog: Stella (Chihuahua - Jack Russell mix)

Stella had many nicknames that several different friends and family in our life called her. “Stella Bella” ” Pot Belly” “Scurvy” just to name a few!

She was a very nervous dog but she was a very loving dog and was very protective of us! She will be missed by us so much and she will especially be missed by Jake.

She is now at the rainbow bridge and playing with Molly, Abby, Bella and Mickey!

Pet Dog: Lhasa Apso (Smudge)
Dog: Lhasa Apso (Smudge) Kelowna, BC – Canada (Aug 2000 – Jul 21, 2014)

Smudge was our little Love Child who came into our hearts. She stole my heart when she fell asleep in my arms on the way to Petcetera to have her baby picture taken. She left the world while in my arms again.

She will never be forgotten, nor will all the amazing adventures we shared and will never be forgotten either. She had so many friends that She made and numerous family members. It was an honor to have her in our lives.

Dog: Schnapps – Labrador (Rockville, MD)

Pet Dog: Buddy (Golden Retriever)
Dog: Schnapps – Labrador (Rockville, MD)
(Born: Jan. 19, 2000 in Randfontein, South Africa – Died: July 14, 2014 in Rockville, MD)

My dearest Schnappsy,
Before you came into our lives, mom and dad were done with the idea of raising another pet. Losing our Kenyan “wild” dog Savannah so abruptly had left us hardened and afraid to invest so much love in another creature who we would one day have to say goodbye to again. I was young and resilient, and believed that bringing a puppy into our home would be the only way to heal our hurting hearts.

I wouldn’t let go of the idea, I knew you were out there waiting for us – with the kind of persistence only a 13 year old can muster. I pressed the idea every chance I got. Mom and dad said they wanted a black lab so we wouldn’t have to worry about temperament as we had with Savannah. They also wanted a puppy that came from a breeder who could trace the family line and rule out possible genetic problems.

PEBBLES “6/25/2014”
I miss you so much & feel horrible for your early departure! It’s like a stabbing in my heart & soul!

I saw a cat lying on the side of the road & said,” These cats lay anywhere that’s pretty dangerous” not knowing it was you!! I would have picked you up gently & held you in my arms!! When I came back the cat was gone so I thought she ran off!!

Pet Dog: Nigel Thegaypug - Pug
Dog: Nigel Thegaypug (Pug) (Jan 15, 1999 – Jul 1, 2014)

Nigel Q. Jellybean-Carlton (aka Nigel Thegaypug) passed away peacefully in his sleep on July 1st, 2014, after a brief illness.

Born in 1999 in Tulsa, Oklahoma, Nigel’s life was an eventful one. He was a perennial winner of the Princeton Pug Club’s Halloween costume contest, was certified as a Canine Good Citizen by the American Kennel Club, had a bar mitzvah in 2012 and was a social media maven.

He had definite opinions on a variety of topics, from distemper shots to classic movies. He was not a fan of physical exertion, though he was an avid tail wagger and greeter of anyone who crossed his path.

A lifelong devotee of bananas, peeing on other dogs, Joan Crawford and barking at the air, Nigel napped, ate, forgave and loved with all his heart.

He is survived by numerous friends and family both canine and human and by his sidekick of 15 years, Biz Carlton, to whom he taught the meaning of devotion and unconditional love.

Rabbit: Lelouch (Lop Bunny) – Peru (May 18, 2011 – Apr 22, 2014)

Lelouch was a cute lop bunny. He came into our lives in 2011. Since then, he gave us so many beautiful times and he touched our hearts in many ways.

He loved to eat vegetables and fruits… specially he enjoyed bananas – any time and anywhere. He also loved classical music. He spent his life with his best friend Baco, a 14 years old cat, and of course with us as much time as we could gave him.

We miss him a lot and we are always going to remember him in our hearts. Lelouch we love you so much.
