Beautiful Tia

When Matthew was little, our cat Grady died. T​rying to understand, he asked “Grady not going to move any more Mama?” I thought that was a good description, at least for a little kid. We laid Tia to rest last Saturday. It was clear she had become uncomfortable, so we had a wonderful vet – Dr. Elizabeth Benson come to the house. It was so peaceful. Tia was at home, on her own bed, with us​ right there with her. When we finished burying her by the cats at the bottom of the yard, we looked out and there were 6 turtles by the lake, seemingly watching.

Dr. Benson said Tia was incredibly strong to have lasted this long. The week before, when we found out about her cancer and heart condition & that it​was drastic​, the vets gave her a day or so to live. She made it 9 days! And she had some good times, walking down to the lake, getting lots of attention, wagging her tail, enjoying hand-fed leg of lamb, organic chicken livers seared in coconut oil, etc. We are heartbroken – we’d had her since she was 1 and Matthew was 5. It was a shock too – she’d seemed so ​healthy, running around the hills with us just 3 weeks before. ​ What a wonderful 12 years she gave us – the best dog we could have hoped for. So many people loved her! She was such a comfort to my dad in his last years – those 2 were thick as thieves. And she had visits from some of her friends during ​that last week – Robin, Kat Wolfe, Maura, Enicia, Kristin, Katherine.

This was a dog who was so well-behaved, she really didn’t even need a leash when out in public. (She wore the leash mostly for show.) She would do what I asked with a hand signal or a word. She wouldn’t come out the front door without her release word, even if you called her. ​I’m grateful to all of you who’ve been so kind & understanding

I can't recommend them enough. I had to say goodbye to my 21 year old cat companion. I read the reviews here on Yelp and chose Paws Into Grace and they made an unbearable situation not worse - from the people on the phone to the amazing doctor who came out to the house. She was so understanding and supportive. They were all so helpful, understanding and nice. My girl got to stay at home and say goodbye in the backyard (a hummingbird flew over and it seemed like a good sign too). So glad I didn't have to take her to a cold vet office.

My absolute love Dante had heart failure three months ago. After having him on many medications to help him, his enthusiasm and appetite declined last couple of days. He was in pain and we decided to help him go to heaven rather than torturing him with more medications which would make him even more miserable. I called and spoke to a very kind lady who was patient as I cried through making an appointment. We made an appointment for 1:30pm. Dr. Toni arrived. She was very kind, explained everything to us and gave us the time to be with our boy after the first shot. He wasn't relaxing enough so she gave him a second shot. We stayed with him throughout the entire process and I carried him to her car in the end. It was a very difficult decision but knowing that our boy is not in pain, gives us some peace. We are thankful to Dr. Toni for her kindness and compassion. They will arrange the cremation for us. Since we are in a pandemic, we had our masks on and said goodbye to our boy in our garden.

I wanted to thank you for sending Dr. Brown to euthanize our beloved Myleigh on March 4, 2021. She was compassionate and accommodating, she explained every step of the procedure, and gave us some alone time with Myleigh after she sedated her, but before she attached the IV. We were relieved that we made the decision to let her go to doggy heaven at home. It was a tranquil and serene passing for her, and it very much aids us in the grieving and healing process knowing that she passed away so peacefully. Based on the grace and compassion Dr. Brown demonstrated on one of the most awful days of our lives we would not hesitate to recommend Paws Into Grace for others facing this very painful time.
