Heisenberg by Amy Myhre
Heisenberg, aka Burgerbutt, aka Hurgusburgus, aka Hoosenboosen, aka Buddy, aka You Dingus, came into my life when he was only 4 months old, shortly after I'd moved to Indiana. I had been without cats of my own for almost a year, and when he and his brother Einstein chose me, I was so happy. Within just a few weeks, he had established one of his favorite activities: Crawling under rugs for a place to play, and under blankets for a place to nap. And, even sooner than that, in no more than five days he had established his ferocity, demolishing one of the fuzzy wand toys I'd gotten for him and his brother and reducing it to just a nub. Both his adeptness at burrowing and his utter ruthlessness with his toys would remain dominant parts of his personality for the whole of his life. But he was sweet, too. He would sleep entwined with Einstein for hours on end, at least until he got a lil more curmudgeonly in his last couple years, and even then I would still catch them cuddling more than I think he would've liked to admit. And throughout his life, he would snuggle up right alongside his most trusted humans and sit there, too, for hours, happy to just be nearby. That never wavered. Even when he started getting sicker and weaker near the very end, he would still come to sit close, to enjoy his family's company, and until the very final few days, he still treated catnip like the greatest gift in the universe, not knowing that he himself was exactly that gift. Oh who am I kidding; of course he knew. I miss you, buddy. ❤️

Winston by Cathy Grayson
Winston greeted me every morning with a resounding “Meow!” and said goodnight to me every night by lying on top of my chest and purring – for 18 years. While our girls still lived at home, he was mostly their cat – playing, cuddling, and showing them true friendship. And he was also, amazingly, best friends with our sweet, family dog. Winston always made his presence known and his love for us paramount. He was always the first to greet me at the door when I came home from work, tail straight up in the air. He had a distinctive voice, loved watching the birdies and when he got the zoomies, I would see him out of the corner of my eye galloping through the hallway with a pompom in his mouth. I could depend on him waking me up in the middle of the night - he would bring me his pompom when he was finished "hunting" or he might (not subtly) let me know he wanted to drink from the faucet. His loud purr was comforting and he always found the sunniest spot to nap. He was definitely a family member who will be missed dearly. You all helped so much through the years, from the time he was a healthy kitty to his last moments on earth, with the greatest degree of empathy, patience, and care. Dave’s tremendous skill in diagnosing and treating Winston gave him, I am certain, a few extra really good years. And likewise, Dave’s total honesty and compassion helped us to make the gut-wrenching decision to humanely call it a day. Vicki and Lisa, you two always make us feel loved and important. So thank you to all of you for your care of Winston.
Cocoa by Bob & Julie Burns
As long time clients of "Dr. Dave" and staff we have seen the best and the worst times of pet ownership together. Cocoa was a dream dog from the start to the end of his 15 1/2 years. Compassionate care from all the staff, past and present, made this possible. Thank You, Bob & Julie
Thumper by Lisa Honea
Yesterday we suddenly had to say goodbye to our cat Thumper. He was the cutest kitten 15 years ago when my daughter had brought him home one day asking can we keep him? I said he can stay the night in the garage and we will see in the morning. My husband left the garage open just a little thinking he would leave during the night but when we opened the door to the garage there he was right where I left him the night before! I named him Thumper because he reminded me of the bunny in Bambi because not only was he gray and white, he had huge feet! He was definitely one of a kind. His way of telling us that the water bowl was empty was to sit totally inside it, and any box left out would leave him trying to fit into it. When my husband would go to bed, Thumper would jump up and kneed on his chest until Thumper decided to stop. We are gonna miss that lil’ man even though he drove us crazy at times.
I am sure his brother & best friend, Oliver was waiting at the Rainbow Bridge for him and are now back together again with Katie and Yoshi and the rest of his furry brother & sisters who left before he became a part of our family. We all love you Thumpy!
Gus by Aren Straiger
We lost a piece of our hearts when we had to say goodbye to our beautiful Augusta “Gus”. She was such a loving cat and even through her visits to Dr. Dave, she never stopped purring. We will miss her more than words can say and we are thankful for the loving care that she received from Dr. Dave, Vicki and Lisa. Our hearts are broken but happy memories will live with us always.
Abby by Margaret Millican
Abby came to our family in November, 2004, she was so sweet, sassy, feisty and even a bit bossy. She loved us with all her heart as we loved her just as much. Abby Doodle as we so fondly called her gave our family 14 amazingly wonderful years. On April 27, 2018 in true Abby fashion she passed away in her sleep. Our hearts are broken but she’s running free and happy with her daddy. Thank you Dr. Dave, Vicky and Lisa for all the loving care you provided for Abby she was a lucky girl and we were a lucky family to have such a caring and loving Vet Family.
Katie by Lisa Honea
I couldn’t hold on to her any longer…it just wasn’t fair to her! I had to say goodbye to my Katie and l let her cross the Rainbow Bridge. I thought this one might be a little easier because she’s been going downhill for a couple of years now but it isn’t! She was 14 & 1/2 years old, my oldest dog yet. I had you since you were a puppy. Thank you to my boss, Dr. Dave& to Dr. Shelly who both kept her going as long as she did! I will never forget you my Katiebug! Go meet up with Yoshi, Oliver, Laddie, Nikki & Bear….until we meet again! I love you!
Coby by Brenda Paultre
Coby was so sweet and had a very passive disposition. He had a full 16+ year life and was well-loved. His weakness was a lack of depth perception, which caused him to jump from unsafe heights. He also had a desire to run and explore… meaning he was a flight risk and would sneak off to go through nearby woods and throughout the neighborhood. My family and I enjoyed our years with this precious little guy. He brought us joy and laughter and will be missed greatly. No more pain and suffering as you run free at the Rainbow Bridge our little “Bean”. We will love you forever!
Tenneyson by Bradley Lorton
ROSEY’S TENNEYSON HENRY OF BRAE
March 13, 2005 to July 24, 2017
“When he shall die, take him and cut him out in the stars, and he shall make the face of Heaven so fine that all the world will be in love with night and pay no worship to the garrish sun.”
Laurie and I are devastated at the loss of our boy.
Rocky by Pati Allison
Rocky came to us 7 years ago as a shy and goofy puppy. He grew into the best dog anyone could ask for. He had a best friend, Ellie, who lives behind us. Everyone in Rocky’s life had a certain role. To Rocky, I was the walker, my husband was the feeder, the kids were the snack giver. His life came to and end much too soon and way to fast. He will be so greatly missed.
Oliver by Lisa Honea
December 30, 2016, My family and I had to say goodbye to the most awesome cat ever! We had him for over 15 years. He was the sweetest boy! I am so thankful for the time we had and that he made it through Christmas. I am sure he is at the Rainbow Bridge playing with our old chocolate lab, his pal, Yoshi! Until we meet again…
Peach - May 2, 1999 - August 15, 2008
Peach was such a loving friend and companion who had such a rambunctious and playful heart. Her favorite pass times include chasing our cat Freckles around the house, cuddling on the couch and going for walks at the doggy park. Everyone she met instantly fell in love with her. She will be always remembered in our hearts and dreams. We miss you so much! - Love, Bob, Olivia and Kids
