The pain of losing Man’s Best Friend is something millions of people know all too well…  Here are  a few quotes from celebs about the passing of their furry friends:

I feel about my dogs now, and all the dogs I had prior to this, the way I feel about children—they are that important to me. When I have lost a dog I have gone into a mourning period that lasted for months.  –Mary Tyler Moore


We had a dog, Apples. He was 13 years old, toothless, blind and had the worst breath this side of Jabba the Hut. But he was the sweetest dog, and I cried and cried when he died.  –Marlee Matlin


I think God will have prepared everything for our perfect happiness. If it takes my dog being there [in Heaven], I believe he’ll be there.  –Rev. Billy Graham


A Poem for Dogs Who Have Passed

For anyone who has ever lost a dog, you know the feeling of a shattered heart…  Here is a touching poem we hope will help you through this terrible time.


Do not stand at my grave and weep,
I am not there, I do not sleep,
I am a thousand winds that blow,
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain;
I am the gentle Autumn’s rain
When you awaken in the morning’s hush,
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry
I am not there, I did not die.

Loved And Never Lost – Ali Michele Layton

October 3, 1998 – NOvember 11, 2009

Wednesday, November 11, 2009, I lost my companion, my protector and most of all, my best friend. As much as I tried to prepare myself for the inevitable loss and pain, in truth, there was no way I could have. The pain and loss is truly indescribable.

Ali taught me things. She taught me loyalty, she taught me patience, she taught me responsibility, she taught me to love unconditionally, but mostly, she gave me unmeasurable joy.

Most people think that we raise dogs. The truth of the mater is that Ali raised me. We grew up together. I was lucky enough to have our paths cross when I was 35 years old, a pup myself.

People would stop me on the street all the time and say, “Wow, what a beautiful dog.” From the day she was born, she was the most beautiful dog I had ever seen. I literally stared at her every day. Her personality was so big and she was undeniably the smartes dog I’ve ever known.

I want to thank you Ali. Thank you for showing me a love I’ve never experiences before. Thank you for protecting me your entire life, a role you took very seriously. Thank you for all your goodness, for always making me laugh, for always making heart smile, for your companionship, for all your teachings, and for all your unconditional love. I miss you beyond words, but you will always be and live in my heart. Forever.

I love you,
