My sweet, sweet Sophia. As difficult as this is, the time has come to let you go, to free you from your pain. You are free, to poop in all the flower beds you want. To eat tuna, cheese and kitty treats and not worry about your weight. To lay in the sun and not worry about it getting dark. You are Free! For 21 years, you blessed our home with continuous conversation (you always knew what to say!), your laid back attitude (unless you were forgotten outside) and your attitude for just enjoying the moment. Your love and affection was reserved for those who took the time to get to know you and give you the respect you deserved. For those lucky few, you blessed them with so very much. Thank you Sophia Bean for being you and allowing us to be part of your life.

We will Truly Miss You so very much. Love Mom and Dad, Thelma, Lola and Marija

To make Heaven the perfect rest place for loved ones we adore God made sure those Pearly Gates contained a Kitty Door!

Our sweet baby Akasha crossed the rainbow bridge peacefully in her sleep. She was the sweetest, funniest and most awesome cat in the world. She lived a long life at age 17. She had the best life doing what she loved, surrounding by the people that she loved and loved her. Our heartaches so bad but we know she in a better place playing like a kitten again. She will always be loved and forever missed. Rest easy our sweet girl. You will always be our angel.

We love you forever baby.

Goodbye my sweet girl.

My Daisy Mae, You went to the Rainbow Bridge one week ago today and the loss of your presence pains me.

For 14 years your little body held the strongest and brightest soul. Your early life was challenging but after your 6th birthday your blossomed. I loved your high pitched meow and how happy you were to see me when I got home. You comforted me when I cried and were my biggest fan when I sang around the house. You stood up to your big sister on your first day and she loved you everyday after that. I am blessed that you helped me through my mental illness and subsequent therapy and were always a source of light and love.

"If love could have saved you, you would have lived forever"

Goodbye my sweet girl.

Apollo was a happy and very much loved crested gecko by both the Flanagan/Rumpel and Gibson families. He was shared between two households and had many critter siblings and one human one (Tristan). Apollo was at least 3 or 4 years old when he passed. He was happy, funny, and had a spunky personality. He was our first crested gecko and we fell in love with him immediately. He liked pangea, bananas and jumping and climbing his two moms. He was a diehard romantic and loved life.

Apollo we miss you and love you always

Keno (Brown Dog) was a majestic Chocolate Labrador who was full of life and energy and everyone who ever met Keno loved his disposition and admired his affection and beauty. A loving companion who will be missed everyone. Keno is now running with his ears flapping in the wind and chasing every ball he can find. RIP Brown Dog.

Buddy Schmidt-Strand

Buddy 2

Me and Tracey lost Buddy in January of 2020. (the boy with the softest ears ever on the right ;-) ) He was our best friend, our loyal companion and a very sweet little puppy. He was kind and loving and didn’t like anybody fighting. He loved everybody - kids, Ruth & Dad...and what was amazing is he was abused but still had the capacity to love everybody. Me and Tracey and a lot of people will miss Buddy forever. Rest in peace, little boy. I love you and we miss you. Daddy & Mom

Tiggy Watters


21/03/1998 - 27/04/2020

Some may say he was just a cat, but not to me. To me he was my constant companion & my confidante, he shared my sorrows and my joys. He saw me at my worst and loved me, he saw me best and loved me still. His eyes looked deep into my soul and I always felt understood. Each morning he would rub my legs while waiting for his meal, afternoons he’d come for pets and maybe play a bit and he lay beside me every night and I never felt alone. He loved to jump, he liked to play, and he loved his kitty siblings. They would come to him for comfort and then he’d come to me, full of love and full of trust. He loved a little people food, but only certain things, like French fries. His favourite food was Turkey & Giblets Fancy Feast. He wasn’t particularly interested in birds, but he loved sitting in sunbeams. He didn’t talk a lot, he was the strong, silent type. My old landlord used to call him Moustache Pete, my ex named him Mutig, which is German for brave. I called him Tiggy, Tigs, Mr T, Mr Tiggy, Tiggy Bear, Moozey, Mooze or sometimes Mooty. He came to me on a winter morning in 2004, it took me weeks to get him inside and once he came in he never left. We tried to find the owner, but never had any luck, probably because he needed an expensive operation, which I gladly paid for. I often used to tell him that he could never die, and I would’ve traded years off my life if only he could stay the loving, healthy sweet big cat for just a little longer. When I told my ex about his death, he said the perfect thing “He Was the Best Cat”. He was indeed. Sweet Dreams, Sweet Boy.

Panda Bear Lohse


25/03/2011 - 29/04/2020

Panda came into my life in May 2011, he was born March 25th 2011 and has crossed the rainbow bridge on April 29th 2020 at 3:30pm in my arms at Alpine Pet Hospital in Calgary, Alberta. He was a present I got for myself when I was told I'd never be a Mom. My plan was to get a rescue cat but something told me to look on Kijiji one night on an Audit shift and there he was. My heart, it had to be him. I was so desperate to get him I even asked an ex to drive me. From the second I looked into his eyes, I knew how important he'd be to me, and I was right. For the past 9 years he was by my side through everything. He's flown across the country and driven across the country. He has touched so many hearts throughout his too short life. Everyone he met loved him. He never bit or scratched or fought. He was so sweet and gentle with everyone, even my rambunctious kids. People would come to my house just to visit him, in his eyes, there was no such thing as too much love or too much affection from anyone. When Panda came into my life, things just fell together. They were just better. His passing has left an empty space in my heart. Thinking of never looking into those big round blue eyes full of love, never feeling him snuggle in next to me in bed again, never feeling him purr as he sleeps behind my head on the couch like my personal heated pillow or his headbutts again… it's an awful feeling. However, his pain is over and I am so grateful for that. Rest peacefully Panda Bear, keep with you the memory of how much Mommy, Daddy, David, Emery, Tefiti, and Hugo (yes the meathead too) love you and miss you. You were sooo special to us.

Little Gracie went to play with Rugger and Echo on February 8, 2019.

Everyone loved Gracie, she was a smart, strong little pup and at times thought she was bigger than all the other dogs, (all 7lbs of her).

She is survived by her Mom and Dad (Tracey & Denny), her brother Nathan, Sister Rachel and Niece Emma.

Gracie loved her easy button and door stop (boing), as well as pretending she was a bull or rolling over (AKA; playing turtle), and all for a treat or two or three. Her life revolved around food and chewies and she knew how to get what she wanted. We will miss her ringing her bell on the door when she wanted to go outside 200 times a day. She never missed the opportunity to say good morning to ALL the kids walking down the laneway on their way to school.

She will be greatly missed by everyone on the street and around the block. Her Uncle Vic & Auntie Jen will miss her dearly and her daily visits looking for any morsel of food they’d give her. Neighbours, Uncle Cory & Aunt Christine will miss her squeaky little barks as she had many conversations with Echo, (or just the midnight air), and I’m sure they’ll miss coming over and letting her out when we were in the city too long.

Thank you Vic & Jen and Cory & Christine for everything you did for her.

Special thanks to Dr. Miguel and Linda from the Strathmore Vet Clinic for their tender care. Remarkable. Thank you to Greta for grooming me and always making me look so pretty.

Rest peacefully our Amazing Gracie, we’ll miss you.

To our beloved Slyy Guy... You were too young to leave this earth. We miss you terribly already. There will never be another cat like you. You were Chonky and cuddly but vocal and persistent. Your little shinanigans will be missed. We will miss your greeting at the door and window whenever we come home. We will miss you.

Love always,

Jet Queen,

You were such a beautiful and intelligent bunny. You were always full of energy. Everyday you made mommy and daddy laugh and smile at the little silly and cute things you would do, from jumping out of your pen to munching on you favorite treats. You will forever be missed, but we will one day see each other again. Rest In Peace my little baby Jet Queen. We love you so much. -Mommy & Daddy



September 9, 2004 - November 30, 2017

Our sweet Beagle Roger passed away peacefully at home from cancer at the age of 13 on November 30, 2017. We were with him at the end and we know he was comforted by our presence. We adopted Roger when he was 2 years old and he immediately became part of our family.

He quickly became best buddies with our cat. They often sat beside each other in front of the fireplace and at the front window watching the world go by.

Roger was very friendly, smart, loyal, loving, ‘goofy’ and sometimes stubborn. He loved going for long walks at Carburn Park . He never wanted to chase the deer or rabbits – he just wanted to ‘sniff’ the next tree to see who had been there. He knew lots of tricks like ‘high five’ and always got his favorite treats afterwards. Saying goodbye to him was the hardest decision for us and we will never forget our ‘handsome boy’.

We loved him with all our hearts.

Randy & Vicky
