Jerry was loved by everyone that knew him and they loved him back.  He was known here at Spring Valley Animal Hospital for his calming presence to both staff and clients.  He taught puppies how to behave and children to be gentle.  He couldn't wait to see the neighborhood kids on his walks and was disappointed if they weren't out.  He loved his family and they loved him back.  He sends them bluebirds in the spring, and though greatly missed, his presence is still felt.  We know that he has raised Harvey in spirit.

Zoey's dad found her in the mountains of NC and referred to her as his "Blue Ridge Poodle".  She looked like a Husky with Corgi legs.  Small in stature but big in personality, her smile was contagious. Smart as a whip she would do anything her Daddy asked and slept at his feet every night.  She was known as our little breast cancer survivor until a different type of cancer came along.  She was a fighter till the end and is greatly missed.

Mali was the "mom" of her family.  Always calm and always happy for a good meal.  She took care of everyone even through several rounds of chemo.  She was a gentle soul that stole her Dad's heart.  Some dogs are more than just dogs and she was one.

Although Max was not an official member of the SVAH family he is cousin to our beloved Harvey.  Max spent a life being deeply loved by his Mom and human brother.  He was a ham that loved the attention and fans that he gathered on FB.  He was a constant during the trials and tribulations of daily life and never failed to bring a smile.  He will be deeply missed, though he will live in the hearts of those that loved him forever until being reunited at the Rainbow Bridge.

To Pouncer

We went to the shelter on that fateful day 

to "look" at the kitties, not intending to stay.

Off in a corner all by himself sat

the perfect little silver gray small cat.

We realized quickly, it gave us a start, 

to find you had already stolen our heart.

You've been Dad's companion and Mom's sweet boy,

for thirteen years you gave us special joy.

We know now you're healthy, no more pills or shots,

and know that we so loved you, lots and lots.



6/27/2005 - 5/26/2016

Thank you Maddie for loving me unconditionally for almost 11 years!  I love you so much and I miss you terribly.  The house is so empty without you!  You will always be in my heart and I will look forward to meeting you again one day.



4/2/2010 - 11/21/2016

Our Dear Sweet Lulu,

You are a part of our family that can never be replaced.  We all miss you more than words can say.  You will always be remembered as the sweet, sweet lady everyone loved.

Samson, you were our good Boy.  We loved you dearly.  When we first got you and brought you home, you took control of everything.  You never got sick and were the terror of the neighborhood.  Everyone loved you.  Yes, you were simply beautiful.

Coco was there with her unconditional love thru all the rough times.  During my chemo she would not leave my side.  She loved riding in the car and I loved taking her.  She will be missed, but I am thankful for all the wonderful memories.



3/5/2006 - 1/2/2018

Buffy brought our family much joy and laughter as well as much love.  He is truly missed.

Dixie was adopted by our daughter, Elizabeth, from a shelter in Greenville, SC.  In 2003 she moved to an apartment that wouldn't allow pets, so we inherited our beloved Dixie.  When she was living with Elizabeth she stayed in the crate all day.  When she came to us, we were retired and home all day, so she never saw that crate again.  She loved Elizabeth, but when Elizabeth came to visit and was leaving to go home, Dixie hid behind me! :)  Her life with us was a dream come true for her and for us.  She was so beautiful, so regal!  Her fur was baby soft and her perky ears and curly tail indicated she was a Carolina Dog, a descendant of the Dingo dogs.  she was playful, but obedient.  She followed me every step I took - upstairs, downstairs, all around the house.  She was always looking for me.  When we left and came home, she was always by the front door.  She was a courier for me, taking notes, or the paper upstairs to her "Daddy" to save me the steps.  One of her favorite things was to get up in the morning (she slept beside our bed), go outside checking every blade of grass to see who had been by, come in, go take the paper upstairs while I took the coffee.  She was the happiest dog ever, turning and dancing in circles when she had to wait on me for walks.  We will always love and miss her - never forgotten <3



11/3/2002 - 3/1/2018

Daisy was supposed to be a teacup Pomeranian.  She was so little that my husband was calling her shrimp dog.  When she started answering to that he had to stop that.  We soon realized we didn't have a teacup but the full pot!!  We loved her so much.  She was not a lap dog (her choice), bu loved head rubs almost as much as she loved her treats.  Even though we have 2 other doggie friends, our house feels so empty..........



9/12/2003 - 3/19/2018

Life is lessons and blessings

Trials and tribulations

Knowledge and perspectives

Of gaining strength to overcome or let go

So we let go of our dear Hercules!



10/4/2008 - 6/28/2018

My Greatest Companion through my toughest times, alone.  You were more than just a pet through our very challenging Army life.  Through our many moves, trips, and deployments, I could always count on you to be there.  Thank you for a very special ten years.  May you run free now, my Maxey!

Forever in our hearts,

Brittney, Jason, Jaden, Lucas & Sofia

5/6/2006 - 12/15/2018

Pepper was my sweet baby boy. My memories of him are precious to me:  how he greeted me every day as if he hadn't seen me in years, how he loved to go "take out the trash with me - the minute he heard me pull out the can he was at attention by the door, how he would tuck his head under my arm requesting to be petted, how he followed me with every step I took... yes, he was my baby boy and I miss him dearly. But, my consolation is knowing that he is no longer suffering.  I KNOW I WILL SEE HIM AGAIN.

My Pepper, pepperoni, pepperoncini, peponcio, bugaboo, sweety pie... "If LOVE alone could've kept you here, you would've lived FOREVER"




8/9/2008 - 1/25/2019

Mobi, Mobi, the joy you brought our family will never be forgotten; for every time you greeted us; we think of all the happiness and friendship we gained.
For every time you wagged your tail; we think of all the love you gave.
For every time you did a trick; we think of all the family hugs shared for a treat.
Loving, fun and loyal; a true best friend indeed, now sleep in peace, for you
did your deed and impacted our lives forever with smiles and cherished memories.
Veronica, Courtney, Aaron and Edward

My sons called Trucker my shadow because he followed me everywhere.  He wasn't a cuddler but he like being where I was.  I think he just got too hot when he snuggled.  He had two other dachshunds he shared the house with until he lost his "brother" Frankie, then there was just him and his best buddy and "brother" Teddy and they were inseparable and now there is just Teddy and he misses his best friend terribly.  Trucker was the protector even though he was the smallest.  He never allowed another dog to go outside alone and always insisted on going out with them even when one was a German Shepherd/Chow mix.  Talk about Mutt and Jeff!  I will miss those beautiful blue eyes staring back up at me!  Until we meet again my little Trucker bear.  Love you, your human mom.

Pictured with his big brother and favorite pillow!  Always happy and always in charge, and forever my heart.
