I've always had the pleasure of having animals in my life, but I've never had a bond with an animal like I had with Baxter. Before he came
into my life, this shy and gentle boy was abandoned and found wandering city streets with almost no fur from a thyroid condition. He had an adorable love of fetch, but I took him unsure that he would come to feel much affection for me. I took him knowing that I could at least give him a comfortable life after difficult beginnings. He came to be so much more to me than I could have imagined. Having a creature who had been through so much come to trust me the way that he did was profoundly humbling. His play, his exuberance before walks, and his breakfast dance are unforgettable; so, too, is how he would smile with ears up and a wagging tail when I had been out of sight for a while, after which he would come to lean his head against me and breathe deeply before melting for pets. His gentle soul showed many foster cats that dogs can be friends and won the love of my infant nephew. The five and a half years he had with me and my family was not enough. This special boy continued to have stranger anxiety and fear of clinical offices throughout his life, so it was a relief to be able to say goodbye to him at home. His absence is still surreal and I cannot express how much I miss his kind and patient presence.
He was so worth it. Always. -Ariana Rogers
"Our beautiful Meem. Thank you for 15 years of love, companionship, comfort and precious memories. We love you and our family will hold you in our hearts forever." Justine McHale
"You gave us 13 wonderful years but will forever be in our hearts. We will miss your silly smiles and the way you always wanted us to throw your ball for you. There was nothing like receiving a slobbery wet tennis ball in our laps. You will always be the best buddy. We love you so much. Be free and run and play to your heart's content old Taz Buddy!! " Rose Crawford
"Zeke was a gentleman and mentor to animals and humans alike. His calm, steady devotion helped to raise all members of our family. Thanks to Dr. Watson, when his body was done, he was able to lay in the cool green grass that he loved to draw his last breath, surrounded by the humans and animals who loved him. We love you Z-man!" Jane Nicolais
"Our Finn, what a Irish Terrier is supposed to be fiery, loyal,intelligent and a true companion. He was that and more...constantly communicating to us through his bark, howl or talking. He'd wake for his nighttime excursion, hesitate to find the proper toy to go with him,he'd carry it to his door, gently set it down, do his business come back in pick it up and go to bed. He was our protector from those dangerous squirrels, any animal on the tv, carnivorous vacuum cleaners and virtually all remote control toys except for BB-8, he was cool. He was the finder of all gross things and would happily consume them for our viewing pleasure when he later vomit them up..on the carpet. He enjoyed gross things almost as much as popcorn, but never has one seen the laser-like attention span when one held a bowl of popcorn. You were the best at being a counter surfer, bed hog and your gentle "herrrrrr" noise you made when you were content, will be missed so much. I will not miss you jumping on my dining room table to look for food....well..maybe a little bit. Thank you Finn for loving us, making us laugh, being with us when we cried, being Lolo's sidekick when no one else would, thank you for standing between my kids and other dogs that you were trying to protect us from, thank you for staying with my mom on her hospice bed, thank you for making yourself the guardian of Shelby and most of all, thank you for helping us remember what this life is about - to give love and receive it. We love you and miss you every moment of the day." Belinda Brown
"Our little Roxy girl arrived in the winter and was panicked when there was no more snow to pee on. She welcomes and endlessly wrestled and ran with Hurley. We will never forget your fabulous feathery tail waving in the wind as you ran from one suspected gopher dig to the next. You were always happiest around the babies at the park, laying in the shade under the slide. We miss you, and will always be grateful to have had you in our lives." Lisa Harvey
"Our joy, our best friend and super hero Zeke. We will always rememberthe way you made us laugh and the way you gave us comfort when we weresad. We will cherish the memories and love you always. Love, YourFamily." Bianca Sepulveda
"Strive to be the person your dog thinks you are. Thank you Kaja for your unconditional love and we will honer your memory with these words always. We love you so much. Your mommy and daddy" Robert and Darlene Jordan
"Our sweet Pepsi... we will miss you so much !" Marlene Muir
"The time we had been dreading had arrived, and it was all too obvious to the family and to our beautiful 15 year old female wire fox terrier.After all the joy, love, and happiness she had showered upon us, we could no longer watch her deteriorate from the ravages of age. We knew it would be a disservice to her to not have her gently pass at home,surrounded by her familiar setting. We phoned Dr. Lorraine Watson upon recommendation, and were so thankful that she treated both Divot and us with such a gentle, soothing, and calming approach. The whole procedure was very smooth and humane, and we were able to send Divot across the Rainbow Bridge with the utmost love, caring, and compassion, all qualities Dr. Watson embodies. We are so thankful for her making one of the most difficult days for us much better."-Paul D. Sanders-
"Rest in Peace Odie. Good dog, great companion, and beloved family member."
"Lily was a beloved member of our family for almost nine years. We adopted her from a rescue at the age of 1-2 years, and she helped fill the emotional hole left by the loss of our prior large mixed breed dog Oreo who had passed in the year prior. While Lily wasn't too sure about other dogs we might pass on a walk, or new people when they first came in the house, neither my wife nor I have ever known a more loving animal toward its owners. She definitely had no "intimacy issues" (unlike our prior dog), in that you could stare into her eyes from inches away as long as you wanted, as long as you were petting her and didn't mind her trying to lick your face. Her love for us was so palpable and it leaves a big vacuum, coming home now and not being greeted by her. We will miss her but are grateful for the time we had with her, and she will always live in our hearts." - Erik Bork
"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 14 yrs. 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 best friend 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 been our 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.
- Oksana Koulinich
"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."
- Karen Salinas
"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."
"We will miss endlessly playing ball and tug of war with you. We will miss your insistence on taking your leash in your mouth and walking yourself. We will miss you supervising all activities in and around the house. We will miss you guarding the house from strangers and welcoming our friends. We will miss you begging for food. We will miss stroking your velvet ears. We will miss your many kisses. We will miss our best friend. We miss you, Abbie, and will keep you in our hearts forever."
"Rest in Peace Odie. Good dog, great companion, and beloved family member."
"Sebastian passed on the next level on August 13, 2019, estimated to be between 15 - 16 years old. I found him at the Camarillo shelter about 13 years ago. He was the calm, handsome dog that didn't bark or even come to the kennel fence. He was truly magical, a gentle soul to all people, children, and animals. He had a song written for him, starred in his own music video, and has been in one movie. Sebastian has roadtripped to more than 20 states with me, even including crossing the border up to Canada to go to Whistler-Blackcomb, going on numerous hikes across the US. He especially loved the ocean, laying down in the shallows til the surf would chase him, running away with a big smile on his face only to do it again and again. He patiently raised puppies and kittens. He was without a doubt the best dog for me, and I was his best human. I really thank Dr. Watson for providing such an amazing service, allowing Sebastian to peacefully pass away in his house surrounded by the animals and humans that he knew and trusted. Love you, Sebastian!"
Tonight, the 28th of August, at 8:53pm, our fur baby Patch (aka "Patches") lost her fight with lymphoma and took her last breath in my arms, surrounded by her beloved Jeff and a home vet. My heart has shattered into a million pieces losing her so soon after Miss Biddy. This sweet kitten, who just celebrated her 12th birthday, was nothing but pure joy and light in our lives... during times of bliss and days of darkness... She has lived through the bright and joyful newlywed days, a move across the country and back, countless pregnancy losses, and the miracle birth of our little Sage. She connected with our daughter while she was still in the womb, purring next to my belly each night along until we brought her home.. She and Sage had in inseparable bond from birth till now.. and my heart breaks knowing that Sage has lost one of her best friends, who slept at the end of the bed each night, watching over her.. Patches.. oh I will miss you so very much my beautiful girl!!!!!! I will miss you walking and purring on our heads at night, waiting by the gate for snacks in the early AM, and looking for your evening "breakfast" as I made dinner. I will miss your hunt for glasses to drink from, your love for outings with us on the patio, and your snuggly cuddles as we watch tv at night.. I will miss you eating cat nip while you roll in the sun "like a kitten".. I will miss you checking on Sage whenever there are tears.. and rubbing against her to give her comfort. You were my companion, my baby, my co-worker many days.. You made all of us happier with the love you gave.. and I am so very sorry you were taken from us so soon. I am praying that you have met Biddy at the Rainbow Bridge.. and one day I shall hold and love you again ❤️💔😿🌈❤️💔"
Our little baby, you were apart of our family for 14 years. You will always be in our hearts, and we miss you so much. We will miss playing
with you, you making biscuits on blankets, and hearing your meows everyday. We love you, Princess. Run free, baby girl!"
We are so thankful to have had Cesar in our lives. He was so sweet and gentle and weird. From jumping up on the kitchen counter from fear of fireworks, to hiding in the closet from the thunder, he stole our hearts. He will be missed dearly and will always be our sweetest gift.

I adopted Poppy from the shelter. She was 18 years old and they discouraged me saying she won't live more than a couple of months. I had her for two wonderful years. When Poppy told me it was time I called Dr 4 Pets. Dr Watson is kind kind and compassionate. Poppy surrounded in the love of her humans and fur siblings as she peacefully crossed the rainbow 🌈 bridge. We miss you ❤️

Thank u Dr Watson for the most peaceful, loving and caring way you took care of our girl Christina. It was the BEST CHOICE we've made was to have you come to our home.

Thank u again for making our girls passing a peaceful moment with her family by her side. You r the BEST!
My sweet baby girl Ruby. I cherish every moment we had together. You always made us laugh and smile. You will always be in our hearts.
