On the passing of our beloved animals

// “If I have any beliefs about immortality it is that certain dogs I know will go to heaven, and very very few people.”

(James Thurber)

“…love knows not its own depth until the hour of separation.”

(Kabil Gibran)

“All the darkness in the world cannot extinguish the light of a single candle.”

(Saint Francis of Assisi)

“It is a fearful thing to love what death can touch.”


“The dog is a gentleman; I hope to go to his heaven, not man’s.”

(Mark Twain)

“If there are no dogs in Heaven, then when I die I want to go where they went.”

(Will Rogers)

“If there is a heaven, it’s certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an archangel to detangle them.”

(Pam Brown)

“If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it; to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness.”

(Marjorie Garber)

“A good dog never dies. He always stays. He walks besides you on crisp autumn days when frost is on the fields and winter’s drawing near. His head is within our hand in his old way.”

(Mary Carolyn Davies)
