Beagle/German Short-hair mix Coby was left at the Dubuque Humane Society after his first owners determined he was not the pet for them. His second family, having recently moved into their first house, decided to grow their family with a dog. Art, Maja and toddler Annika visited the Humane Society and were immediately drawn to he black puppy with polka dotted legs and a crooked tail. They finally convinced Amy that he should come home with them after several weeks of visiting him at the shelter. In March 2000, 10 month old Coby became part of the family. Coby proved to be a typical puppy, chewing on slippers, Barbies and diapers. He enjoyed daily walks and "hunting" for food from counters and tables. Getting. into the trash was a particular talent of his. Before the birth of Eliza, the family decided naughty Coby should go through obedience training to learn ways to help him be a better behaved dog and be comfortable with a new baby. He barely passed the training, but was featured in a tv commercial with Maja fand the trainer. Coby loved the new baby, checking out all visitors before he'd allow them to hold her. Soon, however, he returned to his naughty ways and reentered dog training for a second time. Coby loved going for daily rides in the family minivan, sitting in the front seat to take the girls to school. Coby never allowed himself to be broken of his hunting ways, successfully getting many pizzas, hamburgers, cookies, packs of gum and other things dogs shouldn't eat in his many years. Of particular significance was the Christmas Eve he ate a pound of double dipped chocolate covered peanuts, the Thanksgiving he ate a whole caramel apple pie, and the lunch he stole from a worker remodeling the family's kitchen. As he grew older, the family decided to supplement their family with another dog,a mini dachshund they adopted from the Dubuque Humane Society. Sadly, Oscar died after only six weeks (there is some suspicion amongst family members that Coby urged Oscar to eat that pair of unmentionables that proved fatal). Two weeks after Oscar's death, the family welcomed mini weenie Daisy. She was joined five months later by mini weenie Herbert, the heir and spare to Coby's dynasty. Coby especially enjoyed walks with Grandpa, snuggling with his girls, and making a mess with the kitchen trash can. He was the most infuriating, exasperating, yet lovable and loyal dog one could hope for. Rest In Peace, Coby-dog, we'll never forget you!

Carl will be missed! You were a great fish Carl. You've been with us since 11/28/2015. I had hoped you were hibernating during the cold weather, but to our sadness you were found this morning lifeless on your journey to fish 🐟 heaven. We said a prayer & gave a proper flushing. Carl leaves behind his Owner Cole Chaney.

Today my heart is heavy because someone didn't care enough to stop and find me! Luckily a neighbor saw what happen to my loving Yogie as he laid in the street lifeless. Someone had hit my kaine son with no care that his father needs him at home. I'm a vet with serious health issues and you helped me deal with my problems everyday bringing me the joy that only you could. No need to ask why did you leave the yard. I just got on you something new you started doing this week. Five minutes and I can only hold you for the last time. No more having you by my side all day and sleeping with me at night. Daddy is on his way with your last ride in the backset where you loved to be to have you cremated so I can still have you with me always. Your love was pure and non conditional always there to keep daddy happy and smiling. Now I am sad and crying. I love you Yogie. Always daddy.

Cinnoman Puff Ruiz passed away on September 30, 2016 at 18 years old after leading a healthy and vibrant life. Cinnoman was born in Albany, NY, spent her formative years in Chesterfield, VA, and at nine years old returned to Albany where she lived out the rest of her life. Every human who had the honor of crossing paths with Cinnoman came to know how truly special she was. Some of her favorite activities included: hunting vermin, speaking through classic Maine Coon trills, chasing Temptations Tumblers, relaxing on the kitchen table/counters/couch/bed/stairs/wherever she pleased, socializing with guests, showing disregard for personal space, updating her Facebook page, playing with her toys – especially the feather on the string and the purple sequin mouse, prancing around with her bushy tail waving through the air, and chicken pieces. Cinnoman was a spoiled diva and enjoyed her beverages from people glasses and meals from people plates. Her dislikes included: car rides, belly rubs longer than 4 seconds, the vacuum, animals, getting dressed, and vegetables. Cinnoman was predeceased by her biological mother Minnie Mite Ruiz, her biological brothers Bravo and Daddio (in addition to countless others), her adopted siblings Kristy Puff Ruiz and Puff Junior (PJ) Ruiz, and several of her great grandparents. She is survived by her mommy Lindsay Ruiz, her adopted daddy Sean Hachey, her grandparents, and several loving aunts, uncles, and cousins. Cinnoman’s presence had a distinct grandeur that has left her house quiet and empty in her absence. She is sorely missed in the hearts of those who love her most. Her soul shall live on through pictures, videos, stories, memories, her remaining food that will go toward feeding hungry kitties, her toys that will see a new life with her cousins, each one of her hairs that is embedded in every article of clothing and piece of furniture she came into contact with, and her Facebook page: www.facebook.com/CinnomanTheMaineCoon. In lieu of tears, please share your happiest memories of Cinnoman on her Facebook page so she can look at them whenever she likes.
