    Everyone has pets that they have loved dearly that have passed on. I thought that a place to memorialize them would be fitting for this forum. I will start by posting some pics of Whitey who had to be put down yesterday.

    It took me a while to find my favorite pic of Whitey. My son had set his shoes in front of the wood stove to warm before going to work. This was taken in Feb. of 08.

    You are welcome to post a pic of your loved pet here too.

    What a lovely idea this thread is CK. I'm sure many of our members will add photographs of their beloved pets here.
    You have chosen three of my favourite photographs of Whitey - the 'devil' cat one with the red eyes will always manage to bring a smile to my face.

    This just breaks my heart, and my throat has a lump in it right now thinking of all the beloved pets we will see here. Capt this was a wonderful idea. Again I am so sorry for your loss. May God be with you.

    We received Rambo thru a Cocker rescus group in Sept 1999. He was a Field Spaniel about 2 yrs old then.

    At this point we were giving him anything he wanted during his last weeks with us. He kept Randy pinned down until he got that bacon...

    This is the nicest idea Capt. I'm so glad we have a spot now to honor our sweet pets. I'm so glad you thought of it... but not sure I have digital pics of my kitties, Lilly, Pink and Sister. Oh well, they're here in spirit with all the others.
