"Guinness was our 190 lb Leonberger gentle giant. He brought such joy and happiness to our family for almost 11 years. He was a regular at Starbucks, Barnes and Noble and CVS, where people would crowd around to see him. He will always hold a special place in our hearts." - Maggie Mahoney
"Toaster and his brother Floco came into my life when they were 2 months old. The three of us were inseparable. After 15 years of a happy life, we lost Toaster to heart disease. Those who knew Toaster knew what a brave, tough and special cat he was. Being a Maine Coon, Toaster weighed 27 lbs at one point! Floco and I miss Toaster very much and he will always live in our hearts." Anita Stone
"Zero Franco 10/24/04 - 5/13/19 Loyal and loving companion for over 14yrs. Zero brought light to all situations. He was our perfect little man. Things won't be the same without him, but we are forever grateful and lucky for the time we were able to share with him. We all miss and love you very much Zero❤️ " Allegra Hernandez
"Max gave us nearly 16 1/2 years of love until his last day, following us from room to room. The last year was especially meaningful due to the care provided by Dr. Watson, who managed his arthritis pain for optimal quality of life. In-home care was such a blessing and allowed Max to receive care without causing him distress. Of course, it provided us people with much comfort as well. We miss him very much!" -ROBIN STUCHINSKY
I adopted Ortiz 11 years ago, not realizing he was the best thing that'll ever happen to me. This boy was my savior and helped me get
threw the darkest days. I'm so deeply upset that I'm loosing my save and grace. This boys had been with me threw it all. I'm so emotional knows I won't have him here much longer.". Jenna Andree
"Maisie came to us from Boston Buddies rescue 10 years ago. She was big sis to rescue pups, Jack & Mindy, who miss her terribly. She was a devoted companion who never left her mommy-person's side, especially when there might be ice cream or apples on offer." Joyce Donohoe.
"Moe was a loving and special soul who was a friend to all. He would greet you with his tail up and twitching with joy while he meowed "MOE" at you to let you know how happy he was to see you. He loved to sit on laps and purr so very loudly to show you how much he loved his life. Sadly Moe was a victim of cancer and succumbed to the disease. Now that he has crossed the Rainbow Bridge he is free and no longer suffering. We love you so much Moe." Sarah Roth
"Jake was such a sweet soul to everyone he met. He was an amazing and loyal dog to our family. He let the kids dress him up all day if they wanted to. He played with his toys everyday just like a puppy up until he was 12! We will never forget our sweet boy!" Sofia Eselin
"Marley Danko 2006-2019 Thank you for bringing joy, companionship, and unconditional love into our lives, Marley. We miss you dearly." Rachell Danko
"miss you Tris XO" Melissa Mabry
Lucy - You shared our life for 12 years. You were sweet, goofy,
enthusiastic and always a good girl. You loved life and food. The beach
was your Disneyland. You were always up for a walk. You took good care
of us and we will love you forever." Paul and Elizabeth Greengross
"Our beloved Sam, thank you for 15 wonderful years of companionship and unconditional love, you truly were the best dog ever and you will be missed forever. When we are missing you most, we will remember the day that you were so stressed about having to wear a muzzle on a public tram to go to Devil's Postpile in Mammoth,that you stood on your hind legs on the bus and walked to the back to our seats so you could use your front paws to rip off the muzzle! The funniest thing anyone had ever seen, a treasured, precious memory. To my shadow, that will never really leave me, I will love you forever." Lynn Kuha
In loving memory of Angel Bill and Lu Huntington
"Lady was born on Mother's Day, May 11, 2003. We picked her up on the following Father's Day, June 15 at just a few weeks old. Her mom had been rescued and they didn't know she was pregnant until they got her home and to the vet. Everyone wanted to name her what I considered boy names, so I squashed that by calling her my Lady. She was truly my kind of dog. She was mischievous, rowdy, dirty, and boy- crazy. To know her was to love her. She was so in tune with not only our emotions but also her own. I always knew how she was feeling and vice versa. She was always an excellent communicator. She loved chasing squirrels and ducks,going swimming, going on walks, meeting people, laying upside down on the couch, killing squeak toys, and giving lots of kisses. I grew to be an adult with Lady by my side. We played and cuddled, swam and raced,shared special treats and made lots of friends together. She saw me through the end of friendships, breakups with boyfriends, the loss of other pets, and the loss of my brother. Whenever I needed her the most, I would bury my head in her chest and she would lovingly kiss my forehead, taking such good care of me, as always. She was truly my bestfriend and soul mate. I've never been able to imagine my life without her since the moment I held her in my arms. I will always love my baby. After giving us nearly 16 purely joyful years, she left this world peacefully at home with her loving family by her side as we looked each other in the eyes saying goodbye for the last time. Rest peacefully, my love. I'll miss you forever. 💜" Erin Harrigan
"Van Gogh was the sweetest cat a family ever could ask for. He came to us from a park and filled our lives with joy! He will be missed and always loved." Dale Appelbaum
"Rest in Peace Gentle Giant Buster. You will always be the KING. Thank
you for protecting and loving us for the last 12 years. You will be
"Good bye Ginger. When you came into our life, we didn't know you would become a permanent part of our family. We're happy you stayed. Thank you for bringing happiness to our life. We miss you mama!" - Mark Lara
"You will always be in our hearts."
"Yesterday we had to say goodbye to our beloved family dog who has beenour constant friend for 13 years. We called Dr.Watson, a referral from our veterinarian, to come to our home so we could spare Duke any trauma from spending his last moments afraid at the vets office. Duke drifted off to sleep in his favorite place at home while we stroked his head. Dr. Watson is professional and yet so loving and compassionate. Thank you Dr. Watson for coming to our home and providing such a peaceful
goodbye for us and for Duke. I wouldn't do it any other way."
"Our beloved Bijou. She gave us such joy for 13 years. Thank you, Mama
"Thank you Dr. Watson for your kindness and gentleness when assisting us with Barcley's end of life moment. This was the first time we had in home care with this, and we are glad we did. It was stress free for Barcley, and much more meaningful for us. It allowed us to be with him in his home environment, and we were free to grieve in private. Thank you!" Cindy Pelter
"Tinker was character and will be truly missed". Darren Vadnais
"Annie's last day in our yard💗"
"Thank you Dr Watson for your compassion and caring. You made Benny's
passing less stressful for both me and most importantly Benny."
"Quincy Jones. October 15 2008- Aug 11, 2018. Her only fault was that
she could not live forever."
Ollie brought our family so much joy and happiness... she will forever
live in our hearts.
My family and I were so devastated to lose Chanse. I would say he was a good dog, but even that would be an understatement. He was the sweetest dog ever, with the warmest heart and smile. He loved to howl for the sole purpose of making us smile, and he
would shake our hands and dance with us. He would cross his legs and make us laugh. Everything he did was to make everyone around him happy. I miss him and his big heart so much, but it comforts me knowing that heaven gained another angel.

"Oh my little sunshine! He was our heart and our joy. He also split eardrums with his bark and and melted hearts with his big brown eyes. He was a protector and a cuddler and a foodie. Nothing said summer like holding a piece of corn on the cob so he could expertly the remove and consume the niblets. He was a comfort animal long before the label existed. Thank you, my little tiny Thomas (he wasn't tiny), for letting us love you and and for knocking over two year olds so you could be returned to the pound twice giving a chance to find you. Thank you, Dr. Watson for providing what I found to be an invaluable service -at home euthanasia. Your calm, caring demeanor kept me calm, and able to say goodbye to our boy in a place that was most comfortable for him - home."

"We will miss our Katy."

"Yogi lived an active life with Bella, Cooper & Tucker. He was like a gazelle running across the field and always so gentle with those who needed it. He is missed by everyone who loved him. Having Dr. Watson all of these years to make each of our pet's final moment a peaceful transition is truly a blessing."
We are truly blessed to have had Roscoe in our family and will ALWAYS miss him dearly. He was such an integral part of our lives having come to us as a 3 month old puppy. We had 12 great years with our adventure dog. Roscoe was always game for a hike, road trip, camping, game of ball. You name it, he loved it! A simple, "You're a good boy Roscoe" evoked a tail wag so hard, we had to issue safety warnings. He was also the great protector to our son and slept with him every night until his passing. He will always be remembered fondly for how much he loved his humans. RIP Roscoe/R-Man/Greatest Dog Ever/Daddy's Garage Dog/Child Protector. We will LOVE you ALWAYS!!!!
My Nali-Bear. We'll miss you forever.💔
I have lost my first lieutenant and one my best friends. Never be another like her.
17 years ago your first family left you behind when they moved. I'm so grateful for that because you came and found us. You stayed with us through all of these years and we could never have loved you more. You were such an amazing cat but an even better friend. We will love you forever Poncho and we will never forget you. Thank you for choosing us. You made our life so much better❤️. Dr. Watson, Thank you for doing what you do.
Sweet Zoë. You were a special soul and a wonderful friend for the 18
years we had together. Rest easy, little cat. I'll see you on the other
Rest In Peace Squeaky.. I had you for 15 years since the day you were born ,you're my sweet precious little angel and I'm so sorry we had to let you go but I'm so happy you are not in pain anymore.. I'm so happy I got to hold you in my arms and hug you and kiss you and give you all the love I have as you took your last few breathes.. I love you so much baby.. you will always hold a huge part in my heart that no animal or person could ever replace.
We adopted Mindy, our "silly 'o bear", as an ill senior so we didn't
know how old she was but we were blessed to have for the 14 months that
we did. At her old age she enjoyed short walks, loved to roll around in
the grass and had a very healthy appetite. Missing our girl 😢.
beautiful loving and loyal companions, you were quite the pair and made
each day full of smiles and adventures. You will be missed. Rest In
Peace. Always in our hearts.
Alex and Sydney Kelley 2006-2018. You were loving and loyal companions
who brought a smile (and lots of exercise) to every day. You will always
be in our hearts. We miss you both. Rest In Peace.
Kazi (short for kamikaze) was a true blessing in our lives. He made me
and my husband better people for being in our lives. It is still not a
reality that he will not be with us everyday in our home but will be
forever in our love and hearts. He will be missed beyond words. Dr.
Watson was very caring and kind thought Kazi's journey to peace.
Thank you so much to Dr. Watson. She was very gentle and took her time when it was time for us to say goodbye to our wonderful golden, Faith. She passed so peacefully and for that we are very grateful. We will always miss our sweet Faith.

"Coal was our beloved German Shepard rescue who gave us 13 wonderful human years of life, companionship, protection and fun. He was an avid lover of birds, squirrels, rabbits and anything he could chase! running and protecting our home were his favorite pastimes. We will always remember him for the fun that he ultimately brought us with his shenanigans outside. Thank you Dr. Watson for providing a peaceful,beautiful transition for our Coal."
"In Lee Lee's final hour an angel knew how to escort her into Heaven with dignity and love. Dr. Watson was there within an hour and she allowed us to cuddle, talk and assure Lee Lee that she was safe with her loving family. Thank you, Dr. Watson, for your compassionate help in our time of need."

"Tommy came to us in 2002 along with his brother, Teddy, as an orange tabby rescue kitty. He was very independent, vocal, cautious, and hardheaded, but had a wise nature. He was typically not a lap cat, nor one who liked to be held. He would disappear when people were visiting the house, so other than my wife and I, we were the only ones to really know him. After his brother was suddenly taken from us 4+ years ago and moving into older age, Tommy gradually became more loving while starting to purr when being held, petted, or talked to, which he hardly did in his earlier years. Tommy was not a cat that rubbed on you, but always loved to be petted, scratched, and massaged, and oh did he get those. He was a gift that enhanced our lives and we are so pleased we were able to share our life with him, while hopefully making his comfortable and pleasurable. We miss you Tommy. "
"Snickers helped many humans in her life and she was a kind and gentle soul that will never be forgotten in our family. We had the honor of being her parents for 16 years. After my daughter left for College, we got stuck with her. How lucky are we to get stuck with the cutest most beautiful soul of a dog. She was one in a million. Good bye my dear fiend and thank you for going on a wild ride with us for 16 long years.I owe much of my business's success to you as you were with me every step of the way. Thanks for teaching Michele how to love too! Thanks Co-pilot. I miss you."
"Dear Wilbur, You lived a good long life of 14 years. You were as stubborn as a mule. You had so much personality and love. Your high pitched whine and low powerful bark were impossible to ignore. You could always share the smallest bed with the largest dogs. You constantly made us laugh. We love you."
Our Kona was the happiest dog in the world. When you were with her you had to be happy because she was so happy. A very patient and gentle soul is Kona. We miss her.
"Suzie was my third greyhound, I've had greys since 2000. I've had greys longer then I've known my husband! I love this breed. they are gentle giants who lounge around, are very sociable and don't need much from humans other than love, soft beds and short walks.She raced until she was 5 years old before we got her. She was a joy to all who knew her,not just her daddy and me but all our neighbors, friends, family and even our church! She was in very good health most all her life. God was merciful she went downhill fast at the end. We were very comforted to have her final hours spent at home. She will be missed, we are glad she is no longer suffering."
"This is Ginger & Wasabi Dickinson, in the Columbia River in 2010; one of our favorite photos of them together. They both came into our lives as puppies in 2007, from VCAS in Camarillo, CA. They were best friends and had lots of adventures with us, going on road trips, camping, hikes with our friends, dog park visits...so many good times! Both of them lived a full life but still too short. Sadly, Wasabi crossed the Rainbow Bridge in May of 2017 and his sister Ginger went to join him in May of 2019. They were truly loved and are sorely missed."
