In Memory of Echo:
Whether it is at 8 years of age or 15 years, the decision of euthanasia is never an easy one to
make for our beloved furry friends. Our family recently had to make this decision for our 12 1/2

In Memory of my dog Jacob. I adopted him when I was in vet school and so he was there to help me through the trials of exams and my first job.

Although it was difficult to let him go, he will always be with us in our hearts and in the memories of all of the good times we shared together. We love you Jacob!
