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.

Dogs come into our lives to teach us about love and loyalty. They depart to teach us about loss. A new dog never replaces an old dog; it merely expands the heart. If you have loved many dogs, your heart is very big." - Erica Jong
It's been over a year since I have lost my dear springer spaniel, Cassie to a brain tumor, and I still miss her every day. She went to work with me and her photo is still on the company website. She did everything with me - or I did everything with her. She's in my yet to be release memoir and in an essay that I'm trying to get published. She made me a better person and a much better writer.
My baby boy who lived in a big scary world but trusted his mommy to keep him safe.
I love you so much- fly high
I lost the love of my life.
My beautiful baby Buffy passed away May 7th @ 16 ½ yrs old. It is hard to put into words what she meant to me & how very much I loved her. From blindness at birth to a list of other medical issues, her strength over the years amazed us all. Although we were given more time than I ever expected it would have never been enough.
I will miss all our adventures, but mostly the walks on Greenway trail & quiet times snuggling up on the couch.
Life will never be the same as I learn to live without her. I am so grateful for all the memories & all the love friends & family gave her. “I love you always Buffy "…I hope they have steak in heaven xoxo November 4, 1999- May 7, 2016
I will always be grateful to Zoe for bringing two very special people into my life. She was a sweet and dear soul who I will never forget. Although I never knew Dewey, I have no doubt he was dearly loved and cherished as well .

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.
