In Memory of...
It has taken me several months to be able to write this memorial, and I do so now with great sadness and tears. On July 26, 2014 our dear friend Samson departed this world at the tender age of 12 - leaving his partner Delilah and parents Marsha and Carl heartbroken, along with all of us at CAC. Samson was a loving, animated soul who would bark his rough little pug bark when he wanted a treat - he knew them as "mints" and was happy to follow me around while I played fetch with Deilah, not-so-patiently waiting for me to toss one - and skillfully catching each without fail, Occasionally he would chase down the yard after a pasing car - making sure his presence was well known to any potential visitor or passerby and then run back for a treat - having earned it for being such a good and steadfast guardian. On lazy summer days, Samson would lay next to me on the grass while I tossed the ball for Delilah, and gave him a doggie massage - often sticking his nose in my pocket for a "mint" when too much time had passed since his last one. He loved to show off his many tricks - jumping through his hoop, rolling over, and if you were lucky - he would do his"bashful" pose and cover his face with his paw for you. Such a talented boy. Samson's personality was so much larger than his tiny frame. His soft eyes welcomed us at the door as he barked himself off his front paws to greet us, so excited for his play sessions.
Although it has been many months, the reality of his loss hit me very hard today when I arrived to play with Delilah and did not hear his bark or see his face waiting in the kitchen window next to Delilah. For the first time, I saw his hoop, and held the baggie of "mints" but he was not there to taunt me for them. Many of the Team have visited with Delilah since Samson passed, but this was my first time. The silence without his little bark was deafening, and I was overcome with sadness as many years of memories with Samson ran through my mind. I would have given anything to hear that little bark and scrunch his fat little face in my hands and watch him jump through his hoop. Samson took a piece of me with him when he left this world, and it was not until today that I realized just how big a piece it was. For Marsha and Carl, there is no consolation for the loss of their beloved "son" Samson. Our hearts. love and strength go out to Marsha, Carl and our sweet Delilah. While it is little consolation, we hope they can take solace in the knowledge that he is at peace now and running free at Rainbow Bridge, restored to health, and among great company of those who have gone before him. I know they will see him again someday - and until that time will hold his memory dear, as will we all. Samson was one of a kind - a jester and a prince - rolled into one loving sweet chubby boy with a contagious personality and an unsatiable appetite for life (and treats). He is greatly missed by the many people he has touched. Rest easy my dear sweet boy. You will forever be in our hearts and will remain irreplaceable.
It has taken me several months to be able to write this memorial., and I so now through a river of tears and a very heavy heart, still unable to truly comprehend this loss. Yet another of our life-time Members has left this world. Our beloved Scooter crossed the Rainbow Bridge on February 13, 2014 and took a huge piece of our hearts with her when she left us. I first met scooter in 2003, she was 8 weeks old and was the first baby Jeanine and Paul welcomed into their home. She was full of spunk and had the sweetest face I had ever laid eyes on. For the next 11 years, Scooter graced us with her unconditional, unwavering love. WIthout fail, she would greet me with a "woo woo!" and proceed to lean herself on my legs for optimum petting position. Whenever she would do that, I could always feel a surge of love go through me. It was her way....always showing me , and everyone she knew - so much love and affection. Her gentle soul and amazing spirit shone through everything she did. One would never want for affection if Scooter was around...she showered us with it - unconditionally and in unlimited quantity. I cannot begin to describe this incredible canine - she was indeed in a class all her own. We are all beyond heartbroken at the passing of our sweet Scooter and our hearts go out to the Lombardi family and her sister Opus as they mourn the loss of their first baby, who was taken from us all too soon due to cancer. Scooter's image will grace the pages of this site for as long as it stands and she will always be remembered as one of our most wonderful Members and dearest friends. There are no words to express the depth of this loss for all who knew and loved Scooter. She will forever be in our hearts and remain irreplacable. Scooter was indeed one of a kind. Rest easy my dear, sweet Scooter. I will think of you often and hold you in my heart until we meet again someday at Rainbow Bridge and you "woo woo" for me - and lean in - and I will once again feel that love surge through me. I miss you so much - as do we all. Peace be thine baby girl. We will meet again - and we will snuggle to your heart's content.
It with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to our dear friend Sunny Matus. Sunny crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 11, 2014, just shy of her 7th birthday. Sunny was a gentle, kind, loving soul who loved to play ball and romp with her pals at Camp. It was a very difficult decision for her mom Carla to end her pain and send her on the wings of Angels to rest., but there is some consolation in knowing that she is no longer suffering, is restored to her youth and is watching over us, maybe even playing a role in finding the new puppy who will be coming to join the family soon. Sunny has touched so many of us with her beautiful soul, kind heart and sparkling personality. We send our love and strength to the Matus family and Sunny's sister Savannah who are all heartbroken at the untimely loss of our wonderful Sunny. Run free at the Bridge baby girl...your light and love are dearly, dearly missed and will never be forgotten. We will meet at the Bridge someday and play ball and roll in the grass together...until then, you will remain in our hearts...Rest easy sweet girl.
Today is a sad day at CAC, as we bid a tearful farewell to another of our canine family. Our dear friend Java Bean has gone to the Rainbow Bridge at the tender age of 11. Java's health issues began early on in his life. His loving family provided him with the best care possible and gave him the best chance at a long fruitful life despite the odds. Java loved to play fetch more than any dog I know, and always gave his love unconditionally and freely to anyone he came in contact with. He will be in superb company in Doggie Heaven, along with many of his pals who have gone before him that Im certain will welcome him with open paws. Our hearts go out to Linda and the Modugno family during this difficult time as we send them strength and love. Java Bean was a remarkable canine with a wonderful spirit and he will be dearly missed. He will remain in our hearts forever.
Rest easy old friend, until we meet again someday at the Rainow Bridge. I will come with a frisbee and a ball just for you. And we will play to your hearts content.
It is with a heavy heart that we bid farewell to another member of our CAC family. Sweet Bailey departed this world last week after fighting for many years against a persistent heart condition. Ultimately congestive heart failure was too much for his tiny body to bear, and in the arms of his mom Jill - he went to the Rainbow Bridge. His family and "sister" Maggie showered him with love and care for his 10 years on this Earth. He was a devoted companion, and loving friend to all who came in contact wtih him. His wagging tail and twinkling eyes never failed to give us comfort and bring a smile to our hearts. Bailey has joined so many of our beloved in the arms of Angels and while we know he is without pain and restored to health and youth, those he left behind are heartbroken and miss him dearly. Our hearts go out to the Kidd family as we mourn the loss of our sweet Bailey. Rest easy boy - we will meet again someday - until then you will remain in our hearts.
An especially difficult loss has devastated all of us at CAC. Our beloved Reilly, who had graced us with his love and beautiful spirit for the past 11 years, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 5/31/12 at the tender age of 14 leaving us all empty and raw. Reilly was a very special soul. He spoke to us with his eyes - more clearly than I could ever explain. One would have had to experience it to understand the depths of this amazing canine. Even after surviving liver cancer, a spleenectomy and battling the effects of debilitating arthritis, he would still channel his inner puppy and show off for his special friends on his walks. Some days he would saunter around the yard, roll in the grass and beckon a good belly rub, but without fail, every so often, he would surprise us all with trotting off down the street, showing us all he still had it in him, reminding us of his unwaivering will to live life to the fullest and hold his head high - laughing in the face of all who said he was past his prime. No - not Reilly - his spirit shone bright until his very last moments when he told us with his eyes that it was time to rest. His devoted mama Karin is beyond consolation at the loss of her dear best friend and companion, and we are all grieving along with her at the loss of our beloved Reilly. Karin rescued Reilly and gave him the most incredible life and in turn, he gave her the most precious gift of unconditional love and friendship. Theirs was a true and impermiable bond that transcends this world. It has taken me almost 2 weeks to write Reilly's memorial, and I do so now through tears, still mourning this great loss and struggling to find the words to express just how special he was. In our work, we meet many dogs and grow to love them all so very much. But once in a lifetime, a rare spirit comes along and steals our hearts away beyond expectation. Reilly was one of those souls - and he has taken a huge piece of each of us with him. Reilly was a gentleman and a friend, more human than most humans I know, and his passing has left us all beyond heartbroken. Reilly was unique in every way. A comedian and a genius, a confidant and a partner - but above all, Reilly was family to all of us, and to say that he will be missed, only begins to scratch the surface. May you soar on the wings of Angels old friend. Your absence has left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled. Your friendship was a once in a lifetime gift and we will cherish your memory every day. Rest easy my dear Reilly Muffin...we will meet again -- and we will roll in the grass together.
After blessing us all with his love and devotion for only 8 years...we must bid a tearful farewell to a loyal friend and member of our family. Our hearts are bleeding for my cousin Linda and her family at the loss of their dear friend Gus. Gus was an amazing, gentle giant. who touched everyone he met. After a battle with painful tumors, Gus was sent to rest at home on 3/27 surrounded by his loving family. A true testament to his breed and a loving friend to Linda, Mike and their 3 children, Gus will be dearly missed and will remain in our hearts forever. Rest easy boy.
Sadly we must bid farewell to yet another member of our canine family. Our precious Madison, whom we only knew for a short time, departed this world on 9/14/10. She gave her loving family 13 years of joy, and a lifetime of wonderful memories that they will cherish always. Our heartfelt condolences go out to the McGarvey family during this very difficult time. In the short time we knew Madison, she deeply affected us with her brilliant spirit and her sweet disposition. There was no evidence of the cancer that ultimately took her life, so we can hope that she did not experience much pain before she passed. We know she is romping in the fields of Doggie Heaven now, youthful and healthy, and is at peace. It is only those whom she left behind that struggle with the sadness and devastation of her loss. Madison will be greatly missed by all who were touched by her and will remain in our hearts forever.
Buddy doing what he loved most - chasing squirrels -
It is with a bleeding heart that all of us at CAC bid farewell to yet another member of our canine family. Our wonderful friend Tandy, adopted Buddy at 9 years of age. Buddy suffered from several health issues, and Tandy's love and care truly gave him a new lease on life. Ultimately, an inoperable brain tumor caused Buddy's departure from this world at the tender age of 10. Buddy was a gentle soul who touched all of us deeply. There is little consolation for Tandy for the loss of her beloved Buddy, though we have some comfort in the thought that he is without pain or suffering and romping through the fields in Doggie Heaven and thanks to Tandy, Buddy's final year of life was filled with all the love and joy that he had been missing. Tandy is a hero and a beautiful soul who sent Buddy on his journey - having finally experienced the love he so deserved. It is with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to Buddy and extend my deepest condolences to Tandy and all who were touched by Buddy's wonderful spirit. He will live on in our memories and our hearts and remain irreplaceable.
our dearly departed friends...
CAC wishes to extend our deepest sympathies to all of those who have mourned the loss of a dear pet. While we know that they are at peace now and without pain or suffering, we miss them terribly.
Our beloved Murphy pictured with Kristin's sister Amy
God looked around His garden and found an empty space, He then looked down upon this earth and saw your tired face. He put His arms around you and lifted you to rest, God's garden must be beautiful He only takes the best. He knew that you were suffering; He knew you were in pain. He knew you might never get well upon this earth again. He saw the road was getting rough and the hills were hard to climb. So He closed your weary eyelids and whispered 'Peace be thine' It broke Mom's heart to lose you but you never went alone For part of her went with you the day God called you Home. -Author Unknown
