Bogey (November 2003 - February 2017)

 

Bogey Hedderson Renforth Veterinary Clinic

It is with sadness that the family of Bogey Hedderson announce her peaceful passing on      February 6, 2017. She was born near Kingston, Ontario on November 17, 2003 and about    January 4 came to Toronto to reside with Gail.

Bogey had a wonderful life exploring the neighbourhood meeting new friends, both 2 and 4 legged ones. She soon learned how to use those adoring brown eyes to suggest and con those around her to take her for her daily walks, especially as she dropped shoes at your feet. Her nose was very keen as she discovered “tasty” treats.

Bogey also sensed a storm before it arrived which saw her crawling underneath beds to get away lightning. She loved to help her mom dig in the garden when the spring planting occurred and she had several favourite holes in the garden in which to cool down in. She loved burrowing through the snow just for the fun of it, didn’t mind rainy days and had to go for her walk!

Bogey loved to go for rides in the car and quickly settled in. Her toys were strewn across the floor and when someone visited they were often presented with one or more to throw so she could demonstrate her fetching skills. She loved her food and especially enjoyed her daily KONG filled with apple or her orange balls containing kibble.

Bogey had many favourite spots from which she liked to watch what went on in her backyard & neighbourhood. Bogey knew where her friends who gave her treats lived and recognized the postal gals who brought her goodies. She knew where the treats were in the vet’s office and went boldly to suggest she was starving!

I have lost a treasured friend today but the memories of our times together will get me through the next days.

I would like to thank the staff at the Renforth Veterinary Clinic for all their kind attention over the years.

Sassy (January 2000 - March 2016)

Sassy Memorial Renforth Vet Clinic

Sassy came into my life just over 16 years ago. One summer evening, in the parking lot of a mid-sized apartment building, she took refuge under my car. I fell in love pretty fast. As we got to know her, Sassy was both a sweetheart and a taskmaster, quickly assuming her role as 'Queen of the House.'

Sassy was an active and vocal member of the family and very protective of me through various suitors until my husband came along. We knew he had her approval when one day she stuck her entire head into his shoe. His scent remained a source of comfort for her from then on. Sassy grudgingly accepted her sweet-natured companion Buzzer over the two years they were together in our blended family. When he became ill and passed away unexpectedly in 2014, she mourned with us, pacing around the house, looking for him and sitting on his towel.

Sassy loved lounging in the sunshine, playing with rubber bands and sniffing the smell of strawberry containers. She loved licking olives and eating occasional treats of salmon. She demolished several feather play-toys over the years - her favourite pastime - and as a young cat, liked to gallop around the house like a little horse.

Many thanks to all of our friends at Renforth Veterinary Clinic - Sassy's primary care clinic for most of her life - Dr. Terp, Dr. White, Julie, Danya, Jen and all the wonderful doctors and staff who cared for her through the years, including Dr. Lixfeld who was Sassy's first vet. To say Sassy wasn't a cooperative patient would be an understatement. But your collaborative, gentle and compassionate approach to pet healthcare and pet parent education was of great comfort to me and my husband during Sassy's life, through her illness and in her final days.

We miss you every day, Sassy. You and Buzzie live on in our hearts and home. Until we meet again, my little love.

Love, your Mama Ayesha xo


Milo (April 10, 2003 - March 26, 2016)

Memorial Renforth Vet Clinic

Milo our sweet Papillon for 13 years was our little guard dog and would certainly let you know if someone was coming to our home. He had an unique personality for a small dog. He was selective with his friends and bonded with Karly (Australian Shepherd) during her lifetime.

Family - Larry and Mary were his true loves though and playtime with his tennis balls was the ultimate for him. Milo also thought he was a hockey player as he would stickhandle balls around with his front paws. He was very gentle and would nudge you very gently if he was wanting something.

Milo was a wonderful and special little boy who was loved dearly and will be missed greatly by us. He has now gone over to RAINBOW BRIDGE where he will happily romp and play.

A special thanks to Dr. Terp and Staff for all of their help with Milo during his illness.

Love Always and Forever,

Mom & Dad

 


Ally (July 1, 2001 - March 14, 2016)

Ally Memorial Renforth Vet Clinic

 

Ally was our precious girl, the sweetest, border collie ever, who gave us nothing but unconditional love. She lived a long and happy life, many thanks to the wonderful staff at Renforth Vet Clinic who took such good care of her.

She was an energetic diligent watch dog, always wanting to play and we couldn't resist those big brown eyes of hers.

We miss you terribly Ally but we know that you are bouncing those tennis balls off of Rainbow Bridge.

Rest our sweet angel, until we meet again.

Loving you forever, never forgotten,

"Mommy', Daniel & Joey, (and your feline siblings: Sadie, Olly, Georgie and Marcus.)

Max (February 2005 - November 2015)

 

Renforth Veterinary Clinic Memorial Max

Maxie, as we all called him, will be dearly missed by his Grandparents, Baba, Nonna and Doma. He will be deeply missed by his two big brothers, Andrew and Michael and his Mommy and Daddy.

Maxie was a smart and friendly little dog. He could perform most dog tricks but what be truly loved was to play "Hide and go See" with his toys and chase after his Nemesis- "The Chipmunk". His life was lived to the fullest. He was always the center of attention in our house. With good reason, he was so dedicated and loving. His best attribute were his ears. They were the shape of a westie's and the length of a poodle's. We used call them satellite dishes.

Maxie we are truly missing you so very much. You will always live in our hearts forever.

Nothing will ever replace our special little Poop-a-loo's.

 

Henry (August 2001 - January 15, 2015)

Henry was my birthday present from my son Dave and husband David 13 ½ years ago.  Henry was very shy; he would hide when a visitor would come to our home.  He was my very own little boy.  When I would sit in my favorite chair he would jump up on my lap and help me knit.  He was so affectionate.  Henry always gave me kisses and followed me around the house.  He always greeted me at the door when I came home.
Henry was truly my companion and brought me much joy and love throughout the years.  It was shocking to me that he had a tumor under his chin that was inoperable.
I held Henry in my arms and he was so sweet, purring to the end. Henry truly was my friend, companion, partner, and always there to listen.  He will always live in my heart.  I love you, Henry, and miss you so much.  --Helen--

 

Toby (April 1999 - September 2014)

Toby Friede Memorial PhotoOn October 30, 1999 I found Toby sitting in the parking lot behind the apartment building where I used to live. He was so cute, and we guessed his age at about 6 months. Toby was orange and white with gorgeous gold eyes with brown flecks. He had the softest fur.

Over the years Toby made us laugh and brought so much joy into our lives, especially mine. He gave the best head butts, especially after he ate, he'd love to rub up and wipe off the excess food from his mouth onto my clothes. He'd make these little smacking sounds when he did it.

Toby had an attitude with other cats, but loved dogs. Yes, it's true. I had a miniature schnauzer for nearly 16 years. Toby grew up with the dog and loved her so much; when my dog died, Toby slept in her bed every day for a week. I could tell Toby was missing her and was mourning her death.

He also had a protective side which is funny, considering he was a cat. If someone came to the door he would sit up and growl softly. Toby loved being brushed, held, cuddled.  He was a talker too - he had a very sweet high-pitched voice which made us laugh.

He travelled well in the car and loved going up north to the cottage. One time he ran away and we were looking for him for 11 hours. Thankfully he came back and we were so happy we cried.

When we bought our house, Toby fit right in. He 'claimed' the front window in the living room and spent hours sitting there, watching people and cars pass by. He loved treats, especially cat treats, chicken, ham and vanilla ice cream.

During the 15 years Toby was a part of my life, we spent hours together, sitting close, snuggling, me gently petting him while he purred. He followed me everywhere; he hardly took his eyes off me. I loved him completely as he did me.

Toby had thyroid cancer. Yesterday, September 30, 2014 Toby died. I held him in my arms, his head on my shoulder, I felt his last breath.

It broke my heart making the decision, however Toby let me know in his own way, that he was tired of the fight. I could see it in his eyes.

While we waited at the vet's, Toby purred and continued giving me head butts. I was crying. It felt as if he was comforting me somehow.

Toby was a blessing in my life and he will live in my heart forever. --Linda--



Casey
(February 2005 - September 25, 2014)
Casey Mastrotucci Memorial Photo
With a heavy heart and tears in my eyes after all these years we must say goodbye…Please understand, my baby Casey, we did all we could.If there was anything more we could have done, you know we would have. Your pain was so strong and your body was getting weak…you deserved to have peace.

I was sitting right there, gently rubbing your ears while I talked to you softly, trying to hold back the tears. I hope you know Mommy was there.The memories you gave us we will never forget.  Especially the ones of the day we first met. You brought me so much joy and for that, I will be forever grateful! You were there for the best and worst of times. Now you’re gone and I'm left me all alone... how am I to go on without you?

My Baby Boy Casey, you meant the world to me……

"One last hug and one last kiss" is what they said. You have no idea how much you'll be missed - our talks, our playtime and just sitting together.To look into your eyes that one last time, your last kiss I will always carry with me.  I know it was your way to tell me it's ok - you knew it was your time. You always did that for me. How will I go on without you?

"Close your eyes now and go to sleep" I said to you.  We'll pray to the Lord your soul he'll keep.  "Go in peace now, my baby boy and best friend.  I'll stay right here with you, until the end". And I did.

Have a safe journey through the night.  I promise when you awake you'll be in God's heaven. Win and BooBoo will be there to welcome you home!Now Dream of that special day and time when we'll meet at the Gates of Heaven and all will be fine.  We will run and play, side by side with Boo Boo and Win - with a soft, warm feeling deep down inside, our little family will be together again.

Your memory will live on in each one of us who loved you - you’ll always be number 1 to me! Say Hi to them for me and know, my boy, I will be looking up in the sky for you ….

So with a heavy heart and tears in my eyes, just for now my friend, I say goodbye….

Rest in Peace, my Angel Boy Casey, I love you forever and always oxox

My Sincere Thanks and Appreciation to Dr. Daicos, also Dr. White who checked in on him when Dr. Daicos was away.  To Casey's special friend, his favourite, Jen - he loved you very much and when ever I told him he was coming to see you, he was so happy! Thank you to all the Staff at Renforth Veterinary Clinic for the special care and attention you gave to my Casey Baby.  I will never forget the special care and help you gave us.  God Bless you all for what you do for the Families…-- Carolyn

 

Seamus (2002 - 2014)
Renforth Veterinary Clinic Memorial Seamus
With pallative care, Seamus lived much longer than any of us expected.  We think Seamus was just too happy and too busy to leave us before he decided it was time.  Thanks to Dr. Terp, who, on August 1st made a special trip in to the clinic to care for Seamus one last time, and to the support staff, for the paw print we will treasure forever--Susan & Daniel--

Mimi

Renforth Veterinary Clinic Memorial Mimi

 

"Mimi was 'her own cat'. The house is quite empty without her and her '17' sleeping locations. Mimi became quite vocal in her later years - always talking and perfectly answering our questions. Mimi would greet everyone and anyone with a genuine hiss that would scare off a 400-lb football player. One unforgettable moment: Mimi was a great climber in her day. She used to leap and FLY onto a large set of speakers and then hide behind our adjacent china cabinet. One day, we heard a huge thud. Uh-oh! After our investigation, we found Mimi in a crumpled heap, at the bottom side of the cabinet. I had moved the speakers to another room and I had forgotten to mention this to all the family members! Many thanks to everyone at Renforth Veterinary Clinic." -- Gord and MaryLou-

 

 

 

Gypsy
(September 23, 1997 - July 7, 2011)

"Our family misses Gypsy terribly. However, thanks to the expert care that discovered her first cancer in its very early stages we had herwith us many more years than we might have. We did not want to make the decision we had to but with your guidance and support we knew that it was the right thing to do.  With Deepest Gratitude- "


Rosie
(January 29, 2002 - February 23, 2013)
Renforth Veterinary Clinic Memorial Rosie
"Our sweet little girl Rosie brought us 11 years of happiness and joy. She was the best dog anyone could ask for. Even when she got sick, she was such a little trooper and took all the medications, x-rays, ultrasounds and injections in stride right up until the end. Although we are heartbroken right now, with the help and guidance of Renforth Vet, we know we made the right decision and Rosie is no longer suffering."-
