Love Lasts Forever
She was a loving but with a resting b*tch face. She sat in weird and wonderful ways and adored our husky border collie. She was a fighter who took on our big tom at the age of 4 weeks

Hiccup was the best pet. He was so affectionate and caring and he always made me feel like myself. He would never hurt a bird (he couldn’t catch them!) I will miss him so so much. I could never have asked for a better friend but I hope for him that he is in peace now, with no pain.
Cully was rescued by the SPCA at 5 weeks after being abandoned with her 5 siblings. She was moved from Te Kuiti to Tauranga and then to New Plymouth where we met her. She was a special girl, smart enough that she learnt to spell words and we had to come up with alternatives instead of B-A-T-H. Everyone who met her, loved her. She was gentle, acting as the perfect teacher for many foster pups. She was loving, staying by my side through several illnesses and operations. She was beautiful, inside and out. And most of all, she was loved so much that if love had given her time, she would have lived forever.

Jazz, nicknamed Bubba Jazz, became a part of the family in my first year of vet nursing school, she was a Jack Russell through and through and sparked my life long love of the breed and my career. Jazz was loyal, strong and loving right to the end. Jazz loved her home comforts, walks and swimming. She was a big sister to many fur siblings, who still look for her today. Bubba Jazz made a huge impact on my life and I’ll never forget her or her antics.
There is a paw-shaped imprint forever in your heart
