In memory of "Junior" Cliff

Black and White

Like the piano keys you pranced on

When you wanted to

Go outside

Black and White

Like coffee and cream

That dribbled

Down your chin.

Black and White

Like the iconic cookie, crusty outside and

Sweet inside, that inspired

Your nickname.

Black and White

And the murky half-light in between

When the birds woke and you

Called my name.

Black and White

Like the posters we made

And walked the streets

Clapping and calling “JU-nior” until

You came home.

Black and White

Like Snuggles (poor thing)

Who lasted only three frail seasons,

You lived long.

You were the original:

Your antics, your yowl, your nips. You

Nibbler of lampshades, you

Clearer of counters, you

Loping across lawns, you

Lying long and languid in our laps

A colorful character in

Black and White.

“Junior” was adopted from Dessin Animal Shelter in December 1998. He lived 18 ¾ amazing years. We will miss him.


"Sophie" 8/5/2001 - 7/25/2017

         

Sophie came to us at age 3 1/2 when someone didn't want her anymore. Still so tiny from lack of proper food, attention, and love, the vets at Cherry Ridge were so glad we now had her. She was my instant best friend and therapy dog! We had 12 1/2 wonderful years with our little loyal companion. When the time came, she told me she needed to go. I told her it was okay. She died in her sleep next to all of us that loved her so - Mama(Patty), Papa(Pete), and her sister dachshund, Scout. 

1. Ha! I took the big bed.

2. I love my mama!

3. I am happy and I love Scout too!

4. My mama loves me so


"Meiah" Papocchia 4/10/2003 - 6/25/2016
You came into my life one day.
So beautiful and smart,
My dear and sweet companion
I loved you from the start.
Although we knew the time would come
When we would have to part.
You'll never be forgotten,
You left your paw prints on my heart. 

Meiah was a sweet little Shih Tzu who was always there for me. She stayed here longer than she should have; for me. We had a special bond that will be truly missed, and remembered always. 
-Patricia P.


May I go now? 
Do you think the time is right?
May I say goodbye to pain filled days
and endless lonely nights?
I've lived my life and done my best,
an example tried to be.
So can I take that step beyond
and set my spirit free?
I didn't want to go at first,
I fought with all my might.
But something seems to draw me now
to a warm and living light.
I want to go
I really do.
It's difficult to stay.
But I will try as best I can
to live just one more day.
To give you time to care for me
and share your love and fears.
I know you're sad and afraid,
because I see your tears
I'll not be far,
I promise that, and hope you'll always know
that my spirit will be close to you
wherever you may go
Thank you so for loving me.
You know I love you too,
that's why it's hard to say goodbye
and end this life with you.
So hold me now just one more time
and let me hear you say,
because you care so much for me,
you'll let me go today
Our Family wants to thank everybody at Cherry Ridge from the bottom of our hearts for the love and support and care for Buddy we will never forget the kindness you showed us! Buddy is now with his dad in heaven running, playing, chasing rabbits and digging holes. Grandma and Grandpa Tracey Nick and Patti will miss you and remember you always!

Testimonials

They are great! They fit me in for an emergency appointment same day and are very professional in manner. Dr Rutledge was so gentle with our furbaby pitbull Kilo and the service was phenomenal. Within 20 minutes of blood being drawn we found out he had Lyme. The pricing was very reasonable. I highly recommend taking your pets to this vet. I'm beyond pleased and relieved. Thank you Cherry Ridge Vet.
