Pet Memorials

This page is to honor our beloved friends after they've passed on and to pay lasting tribute for making our lives better just for having been in it. 

Chevy I had known for a little while as he was boarding often with us at Butler creek, then, unfortunately, his owner had to surrender him to us and I couldn’t say no to that friendly face. I took him into our family did a meet and greet boarding with our pitbull Phoenix and they were best buds instantly. We knew Chevy had some health issues going into this. He had seizures and was had kidney issues. But our family made sure we gave him the best life no matter how much time he did have with us. Chevy was one who never met a stranger, fit right into the pack in playcare and just really lifter your spirit. He radiated love as I liked to say. He was our Golden boy. He did go into kidney failure about a year later we did all we could until he couldn’t fight anymore. He was so loved and really was there for us and Phoenix when we needed it. We miss him every day but we know he is with his best friend Phoenix now is heaven. He Made my heart grown even bigger for senior dogs.

Phoenix was taken in by my boyfriend Brandon from a bad situation where he was most likely used as a bait pup. When we got him he was just shy of a year and was scared or cages and small dark places. He would growl to intimidate us but he slowly grew to trust us again. We then became pregnant with our son Adrian and we were a little cautious with Phoenix around him but it was clear their bond was special and he wouldn’t hurt his best friend. When I started working at Butler Creek animal hospital First we had him evaluated with Frank and Millie they said he would be a good mentor just have him neutered first and we would love to have him in the pack. That’s exactly what he became too a great mentor for those coming into playcare and for dogs I would foster or eventually adopt. Phoenix was with us for 11 and 1/2 years before He went into Kidney failure. But he was loved at both Butler Creek Animal Hospital and at Cedarcrest Animal hospital. He had this tough yet loving spirit about him that connected with so many. I will always love him and will never forget him. Made me really love the bully breed too they are some resilient dogs! Fly High Phoenix.
