    Dear Rick and Staff:
    We thank you very much for all your wonderful support since May 2015. We miss Tinsel tremendously, always running around your feet, eager to play at any hour of the day or night. We knew him for eight and a quarter fabulous years. He could not have lived so long without your expertise and care. Thank you again Rick. Thank you for taking the trouble to call and ease our aching hearts. Tinsel was a family member and was loved as such and returned that love. May God Bless you.

    Sweet Little Chuck the chameleon.
    I miss you so much already. It was so fun to watch you catch crickets and take you out for some time in the sun! You had a short life filled with fun and love. Mommy still tells me stories at night about “The Adventures of Chuck the Chameleon.” I will always remember you.

    My gorgeous, beloved precious bird Lady lived a life full of vigour. He had been struggling for the past 2 weeks and is finally at peace. He was 4 years old and gave me unimaginable joy. I was so proud to be his bird mommy. Lady, you made me and so many other people happy. You loved to talk and had extensive vocabulary, were active and playful, gorgeous to boot, super social and best of all you loved me in return. I will miss your cuddles and getting to kiss you. You will never be forgotten.

    Cocoa was a kind-spirited soul with a love for everything, especially any fresh treat imaginable. Her favourite treats were strings of broccoli that she shared with sister Cotton “Lady and the Tramp” style. She led the “squeaking chorus” with her sister whenever she heard sounds and footsteps in the kitchen, walking up the stairs, or coming in the front door. Cotton will surely miss her, running their daily laps and “pop-corning” around their cage. Cocoa will forever hold a place in our hearts.

    My little Marj – almost a year since I lost you – I miss you every day – you were my best little friend and protector and made my life complete. I had you for a pretty good long time, but never long enough. I will love you all of my life and I will see you again one day!

    Dear Audrey,

    You were the most foreboding little critter who could hold your own against a sister twice your size when she played with you. You were always ready for cuddles and were adorable in your zeal for carrots. We’re so happy to have been a part of your short life and to have let you make our family that much better. May you be in a place with infinite carrots and hugs.

    My Dear Loving Tiki,

    Passed away on March 11, 2016 at 17 years of age.

    You will be missed so much.
    How can I ever fill the hole in my heart and in my life that has been left. You were never a pet, you were my family. I’ll miss playing peek-a-boo with you, your kisses & cuddles, how you would fall asleep on my chest or in my hand while watching TV….

    I will Always Love You,

    Mommy Paula

    My dearest Nutmeg, you were the best little parakeet (aka. Velociraptor) that a human could ever have. You were full of moxie and independence, yet loved being with me when we had play time. When you became ill you still carried through as best as you could. Your love for your mate, Zucchini and four other flock mates including your humans had no bounds. You brought life and love to all of us. We will miss you so much. A special “thank you” to Dr. Axelson and staff for your care.

    Mitsy was a sweet little hamster and her family loved her very much. All through her little life she was loyal to me, Maya, and had a nip for everyone else. I gained her trust and had to do the best thing for her in the end. Mitsy will always hold a very special place in my heart. Love you Mitsy.
