This page is dedicated to the Grey Muzzle Always In My Heart campaign donors. During the year, our supporters celebrate the pets they have cherished by making a special "in memory of" donation to the Always In My Heart campaign. A gift of $20 or more supports senior dogs nationwide who have become homeless when they are most in need.

I met Barney when I met David. The first time that I walked into David's apartment Barney greeted me as if he had been waiting for me all his life. But it was the other way around: I had been waiting for both all my life.
Although raised in Manhattan and most often walked on the city's sidewalks and dog runs, Barney was the quintessential Labrador dog: swimmer, diver, retriever. He loved being in the water, no matter the temperature, having something to retrieve back to shore. He more than once was allowed (by me, illegally) to dive into Central Park's lakes to retrieve toys, baseball caps, frisbees, anything people would accidentally drop. He was your most trusted lifeguard.
In the last couple years of his life, when his hips started to get weak, and movement difficult, we decided to spend all our holidays locally, so that he could come with us in the car. We drove out of town as much as possible to get him to swim, walk and breathe fresh air.
Barney passed away at 2.26pm on Friday December 18th 2015 surrounded by people who loved him. As his velvety muzzle leaned to rest on my hand holding his paw, he peacefully fell asleep wrapped in David’s embrace.
His ashes were spread in a fresh water stream on a mountain upstate New York where we all loved to hiked to.
He was so beautiful, my Pooh Bear.

In loving memory of our magnificent Barstow. A true friend and teacher, we are forever changed by your beautiful spirit. You taught us to see with our hearts, that what seems like an ending can really be a new beginning, and finding joy in simple things. Our lives will never be the same in the absence of your physical presence, but we will always be better for the gift of having you in our lives. We feel your spirit with us even now, and know you are still watching over us and joining in on our adventures. We love you and miss you more than words can capture. You are close to our hearts always.
In honor and memory of Cloey, a most excellent spotted girl.
Our beloved miniature schnauzer Jessie was nearly 18 when she crossed over the rainbow bridge. She was such a special girl and loyal family member. Miss and love her.

As our first puppy mill rescue, Gracie opened our eyes to a world we did not know existed. She changed our household and us for good. She came from a Nebraska puppy mill at 8 years old. She was our amazing Gracie and we miss her every day. Now she is a free puppy for the 1st time.
Lisa and Maxwell
In loving memory of Zeus Hubick—the 17 year old wonder dog! Much loved and missed and always in their hearts.
Andy, you came to Camp at age 11 and left us just 17 months later. We are sure going to miss you buddy. Thank you for being here to shine your light. Lots of love, Momma and the campers <3
Tami & Kent Sterling
In loving memory of our sweet Kennedy who exemplified the meaning of pure and authentic love. Our hearts, although broken by your departure, were forever changed by the blessings that your gentle demeanor and steadfast love brought to us. We will forever miss you and until that sweet day, when we meet again in all of heaven's glory, your memory will forever reside within our mind and hearts!
Dia and Bev
We watched our boy Smoky move from young and sturdy too old and frail, but he was always our darling, whether romping in the snow, jumping in a mountain stream, or coming slowly to lie quietly near us in later years. His eyesight and hearing decreased, and his ability to get up and walk on his own grew less, but he was always "somewhere in there", our old boy. On August 29 he left us while we caressed and whispered to him—but he lives in our hearts and memories.

I can not tell you how much richer Bow made my daughter's life. We will always hold tight to our memories of Bow. Bow passed from complications of Cushing's disease, more common in "grey muzzle" older dogs. Run free over the rainbow bridge Bow until we see you again.
