We miss her so much. We had her for over 17 years and we really don’t know how old she was. I went into Pet Smart Dec.2006 for gifts for my other 2 cats and came out with Amber. Something told me to bring her home. She was a traumatized little cat which I discovered . It took a good year for her to come out of her depression. My other cats would cuddle up with her and she started to gain weight. She started trusting us and we were able to give her all the love she needed to heal. The rest of her life was happy. She loved our fenced in garden and would lick Bushy until his head looked like he had gel in it. I know she missed our two cats when they passed on. She was a good little cat with her peculiar little ways. She loved to sit in the middle of jigsaw puzzles and flick her tail to knock pieces off the table. She lives in our hearts forever.

What can we say about our sweet little boy Max? Max was a most wonderful boy. From a little kitten to 17 years old, he was the ideal companion and friend. He was almost human. We always joke that all he was missing was a voice. We would literally have conversations with Max and it almost seemed like he was answering us. He had the best personality, well except on vet visits lol. But every day he managed to make us laugh and enjoyed every minute with him. He was there for many special moments, even our wedding day.
Max loved flinging momma’s hair elastics and playing soccer with rolled up napkins. He enjoyed cuddling next to mom and dad and having his morning baby cuddles with mom and playing with dad. Momma even had her special moments singing to Max and dancing with him. He made friends with the neighborhood birds and soaked up the sun on the balcony or near the window. If he wasn’t there, he was hiding amongst the pillows on the bed or in his quiet spots in the closet. No matter where he was, he was the King of the castle and we simply had the honor of sharing his home and being his parents.
There simply will never be another cat like our boy Max. He surpassed just being a cat. He made a mold in our lives and hearts that only he could fit. Max was a beautiful boy that will never ever be forgotten. Down until the end, he brought so much joy and love to our lives.
The sweetest boy who will forever live on in our hearts

Mela was the sunshine of our home. She was a lifelong friend that would waddle, hop and smile around the house even on our worst of days. Her favourite season was summer, and she would LOVE being the centre of attention during our BBQs. She will always be in our hearts, smiling with her tongue sticking out and sunbathing all day long…
Mela brought a warmth to our home that we will continue to feel forever. She taught me how to be happy with what I have and how to appreciate even the smallest joys in life. It’s the little things I’ll miss the most, like the tapping of her paws and needy barks. Rest easy Mela, and thank you for everything.
You are always in our hearts and memories. We will miss you 😢

Stunningly beautiful Cali was a huge part of our whole family since 2003. She was my best friend who wanted to be with me as much as I wanted her with me. I sadly miss her coming to greet me at the front door, sleeping every night with me, laying basking in the sun in a chair, playing ‘hockey’ with wadded up paper, sitting on my lap when I watch Tv. She has left a hole in my life. I loved her.

Our sweet little Nacho was part of our family for 13 years. He was like a son to us and we will miss him dearly. He gave so much love to not just our family but to everyone that ever met him. Once he stopped barking at them.
Nacho loved food and was always looking around the house for something to eat. Whether it was stealing kleenex , the croissant in someones hand or the full hot dog on his brothers plate, he always found a way to satisfy his hunger. His love for hot dogs was deep which is why he always got one on his birthday.
Nacho’s favourite place in this world was the cottage. It was the place where he would run around the property all day long, sniff all of the wildlife that was present while he was back in the city and just felt freedom. That freedom had its downsides occasionally though. There were the times he came face to face with a skunk and found out the hard way why you stay away from them. There was also the time when he decided to put a toad in his mouth and experienced some terrible things. Nacho lived his life to the fullest.
Fly high our cute pup Nacho. Until we meet again!
Love, Mom, Dad and Brother

Cheshire loved the outdoors, despite being an indoor cat. His favorite thing to do would be to stretch out in the sun on our front steps and roll around on the warm pavement. We will miss those special moments soaking up the sun and enjoying the fresh air together.

I’ve had Poco since I was in high school. We are still trying to cope with the loss. My fondest memories of Poco is how he always jumps up on my bed, snuggles up to my body, do 10 thousand spins until he finds his most comfortable position before he plops down and curls up into a ball sleeping beside me. He’s brought a lot of happiness in our lives and we will always love and remember him as the best doggo ever ♥️

Today our sweet Lucy passed away. She was in our backyard, in her favourite bed. Dr Basu made the whole experience as peaceful as possible. Thank you for all the almost 16 years of care that was provided for Lucy. We take comfort in knowing she was always loved by your staff. I will drop by sometime with the leftover meds, in case they can be donated. Our hearts are a little broken but she was worth it.

Stanley crossed the Rainbow Bridge on July 5. I was blessed and privileged to have had Stanley for almost 13 years through his many ailments over the years. While he may be gone, much loved by all. He will never be forgotten.

We were so blessed and privileged to have this little furry angel in our life for the past 15 years. She brought so much joy and happiness with her presence and her character. She was smart and caring. She was our refuge from a busy life. She taught us patience, unconditional love, how to be happy in the moment, how to have fun… Maxy will be missed a lot, but all the beautiful memories of her will stay forever in our hearts.

Aussie was like a son to our family. Terry brought Aussie home at the age of six months old. Through the past sixteen years Aussie was our darling, he was full of energy running around to hug all of us and so friendly to everyone he met. Bye to our love one Aussie, may you rest in peace and you always in our hearts and be missed forever.

Flaco loved nothing more than playing fetch with his favourite squeeky guy and had a special hatred for frisbees, I think because he could never quite catch them…. Flaco’s personality was much bigger than his small stature, sitting only at 11lbs he would routinely try to take on streetcars, bicycles and skateboards in a kind of deluted ignorance that was very fitting for his level of confidence.
When he wasn’t chasing his ball… or the things he hated, Flaco loved to curl up in a nice pile of warm clothing fresh from dryer. I’ll always miss his snuggly cuddles and his spunky defiant personality. Rest in peace little man.

On 3.21, sweet Sienna (Azores Cattle Dog) blasted off to Heaven. Now, she is with the rest of our spirit animal family. Sienna loved her cat “herd” and her people companions. She was playful and energetic since the day she was adopted from Toronto Animal Services back in 2011. Thank you TAS. Sienna enjoyed the brisk early morning walks with her dad Richard and the many runs and long afternoon nature walks with her mom Linda. Smart Sienna could “Stop, Drop, Roll” and she could jump so high. Her favourite toy was her “Big Blue Ball” which she always kept by her side in the house. Sienna’s eyes were always alert shining so much love. Thank you, Sienna, for your unconditional love. You were a blessing. We love you. We miss you. Run, Sienna, run!
Thank you, Dr. Cathy Leung and the staff of Markham Vet Clinic.

Mimi has lived an amazing almost 17 years of life and he has lived so long because of the amazing team. It was great to hear that he had an alter ego named “memers” at the vet and the staff greeted him so nicely while accepting his grumpy personality.
At home he was loving, always waited by the door for us to come home and was extremely inquisitive in telling us what to do to feed him.

It is with great sadness that we have to say goodbye to our unique boy Benji. He provided love and loyalty to our family for the past 14 years, most of which was showcased through humour. He always made us laugh, whether with him or at him and his antics. We are comforted knowing he lived his best life, which also included his love for greenies, cheeseburgers and laying on a freshly cut lawn. He will forever be missed. Goodbye B, we love and thank you for being you!

Missy had the sweetest disposition, a loving little soul. Her inquisitiveness made her check everything thoroughly, whether cupboards, bags, or her own toys; you name it she was involved. She was a little clown, she could scare herself and then would run all over the place as if being chased. She made us laugh with her antics.
Though her breed is not known as being a lap cat, she jumped up on our laps each evening, watched TV or listened to music. She wanted to be held and stroked, which we lovingly obliged to do. She loved to purr, what a soothing sound! We miss her terribly!
She was the first one at the front door should the bell ring and greeted the visitor. She was very sociable, our neighbours knew her and often asked about her.

He loved the summer when the sun was blazing hot he would sun tan on his favourite chair. Jody was definitely a proud homeowner. He loved the trees, especially the one in the front yard. We caught him several times talking, hugging and climbing the tree. We planted a Japanese Maple tree in the backyard for him and he would sit for hours under the tree and would get upset when the birds came by to bother him. Jody would go for walks with his mother smelling all the flowers in the neighbours flowerbeds.
Jody had a best friend named Elmo. They would hang out in the bushes doing their cat thing and getting up to all kinds of mischief.
We loved Jody to the moon and back. No words can express our sadness since his passing.

“Until one has loved an animal, a part of one’s soul remains unawakened.”
Within the past 5 years, Pepper changed me. I learned from him the true definition of unconditional love, loyalty, forgiveness and not holding grudges. Not to mention, he was great at
listening to my problems.
I’m gonna miss him running and barking at anything that passes without saying hi to him. I’m gonna miss him smelling everything I eat. I’m gonna miss his constant demands to play by
throwing a toy on my face. I’m gonna miss his tongue sticking out all the time.
Thankful for these 5 wonderful years with the bestest dog, Pepper.
I am thankful for the Markham Vet Clinic team and Susan for taking care of this little guy for the past five years. Thank you for all your love and support.

Hard to say goodbye but thank you for always being my baby. You always wanted hugs, kisses and lots of attention! You always greeted me when I came home and stood at the window watching me leave. You brought joy to everyone around you and you will always be in my heart. Mommy loves you always.

Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our MVC family kitty, Liesel.
We will always remember her quiet meow and how she loved to lay in her favourite bed in front of the doctors as they typed at the computer.
Liesel we are all going to miss you so much, but we will all one day meet again!

With many tears and very sad hearts, Wayne and I said goodbye to our beloved 12 year old Striker, his full name, “Lord Striker”, born September 26th. With dignity, Striker walked in the office of the Markham Veterinary Clinic and Dr. Sonya Firth & Nurse Lorraine and her assistant, helped him to his journey to Doggie Heaven crossing over a Rainbow Bridge. Striker was truly one of God\’s kindest and most gentle creatures right to the end. The house is so quiet without his presence. Every morning he would come wagging his tail, talking, sitting up to share his morning breakfast with Wayne, the early birds and then whirl around and get one of his favorite stuffed animals. He was our gorgeous “Red Golden Retriever”. Never fetched a ball, just gave you his funny look, like nope not going after that ball. Always excited for his walks with Wayne, he never cared how bad the weather was outside, Striker was going for his walk. Striker would greet you with his beautiful smile when family and friends knocked on the door. He was loving and well loved. It is hard to imagine not having our sweet old Striker around with us now. We know that someday we will be with you again Striker, on the other side of the bridge. Meanwhile you are always with us in our hearts and memories. Your in God’s hands and with all our Guardian Angels. God Bless!! We will miss you Striker, so, so much. xo
