"Kodiak, a norwegian elkhound died at age 14 a week before Christmas as she lost her battle with cancer. She served as a therapy dog, bringing joy to children in elementary schools as they would read to her as they practiced reading aloud, in homes for disabled children, and she also brought joy to senior citizens living in nursing homes. She was a miracle dog when she overcame bloat. She was staying with a sitter who noticed she was in trouble. The surgeon estimated another hour could have been fatal and my research shows that dogs rarely survive this issue.
Kodiak also enjoyed kayaking and is the only dog I've ever had that just bounced gently by my side without pulling me around the block. She was a pound rescue and was such a sweet and quiet pooch. We miss her so!
My first love.
Mommy's little man.
Daisy you were only with me for a short time but you left paw prints on my heart that I will cherish forever. We will be together sometime taking walks in the woods and watching the sunset. Until then my love take care and enjoy your time with your Rainbow Bridge friends. Love you always Mom.
Bailey. Our little problem solver. Miss you always.
Crystal I love you so very much and miss you greatly. You are always in my heart and on my mind. Till we meet on the other side of the rainbow bridge take good care of Daddy.
Your loving mom, Renee
Baxter, I miss your cuddles, soft kisses and your genuine love. Your brother Charlie misses all the shenanigans. I love and miss you dearly and will keep you forever in my heart 💙
"Some days it's like a haunting
This cool and empty space
Far above...and all around me
When I start to miss your face.
Maybe it's a once in a lifetime
kind of thing, to feel the kind of
magic that your love brings.
You Live In Me, My Reverie."
We feel you with us every day.
We will love you forever.
~ Marla, Ethan, Amanda & Dylan
Kingsford, we miss you buddy. Until we all meet again .. ❤️

Sadie - Such a sweet and gentle soul. “Pretty girl” I hope you are taking special care of my Manny. Love and miss you forever!
Miles Oct 25, 2008 - Apr 21 2021:
So this is where we part, My Friend,
and you'll run on, around the bend,
gone from sight, but not from mind,
new pleasures there you'll surely find.
I will go on, I'll find the strength,
life measures quality, not its length.
One long embrace before you leave,
share one last look, before I grieve.
There are others, that much is true,
but they be they, and they aren't you.
And I, fair, impartial, or so I thought,
will remember well all you've taught.
Your place I'll hold, you will be missed,
the fur I stroked, the nose I kissed.
And as you journey to your final rest,
take with you this... I loved you best.
A PHOENIX Is Reborn Out of Dash, also known as: Pheenie, Pheenie Bean, Pheen Bean, #funeralhomepuppy, Buddy, Butters, Beaners, Rufus, Phoebe, Fat Boy, Phoenix Earl, Meanix, and N.A.H., age 6 years, 1 month and 14 days. Deeply beloved pupper of Sara Wise; best buddy (and let’s be honest, soulmate) of His Brian (Brian Anielski); cherished grandpup of Dick and Amy Wise, and Wayne and Rose Anielski; favorite dog nephew of Ryan and Jessica Wise; tolerated cousin of CoCo and Trigger; former roommate of Mz. Avairee (Avery Baker); and devoted coworker at Latek & Rybicki Funeral Home.
A dog was born November 22, 2014 and became Phoenix on January 11, 2015 when his mom picked him up and brought him home. He started work that same day at Latek & Rybicki Funeral Home, sitting on his mom’s lap, hidden under the desk during a visitation. He loved going to work every day. While he stayed just an office pup, he took the job very seriously. He would run up the steps and give his best roo-roos, (He was a talker!). He would wait at the top of the steps to greet anyone coming up in hopes a head scritch or two would be given. They were. Mostly though, he would nap most of the day in places you had to step over him.
Phoenix loved running with Mom. So many miles were covered together. His longest distance was seven miles and he even ran a few races. Usually, he helped her train for her races. His mom always shared her medals with him.
Phoenix loved cardboard boxes. Just the sound of one opening brought him running to destroy each box. He also loved opening up presents. Wrapping paper and boxes were no match for him; neither were Mz. Avairee’s lip glosses or orchids. And good luck putting on a pair of socks in front of him. Hopefully, you were still flexible and could lift your leg above his attacking mouth.
Phoenix would bark his head off if snow or dirt were being shoveled, a hose was being sprayed, leaves were being raked, or wood was being split. He wanted those objects thrown up in the air so he could jump up and catch them. Or at least have it crash all over his face.
Speaking of catching- Phoenix caught two mice in his lifetime. His breed is known for being ratters, so he was very proud of those two catches.
Phoenix was an odd duck and loved raw veggies and fruit. As Mom was cutting them each morning, he would give a little woof to let you know he was there and some better be shared. Broccoli, cucumbers, and green beans being his favorite. He would share a banana every morning with his mom on their way to work and an apple during the day.
Phoenix went everywhere with Mom and His Brian. He enjoyed beach vacations, weekend trips to the cabin, going to family and friends’ houses, every car or truck ride possible, (He learned how to put his window down in any vehicle. Sticking his head out in the rain was his favorite and barking at the splashing puddles that Mom would purposely drive through for him.) and following His Brian all over our five acres.
Phoenix was diagnosed with a terminal nasal tumor on December 14, 2020.
He crossed over the Rainbow Bridge on January 5, 2021 in his mom’s arms and looking at His Brian.

3 years ago, I lost my best friend Phoebe. I miss you sooo very much, until we meet again
I lost Annie in March 2021. She was 16 years old. I love and miss you!
Booger and Angelo
Booger & Angelo, 2021 has been so difficult losing both of you this year.
Zeus and Isabelle
Zeus and Isabelle. We miss you both so much.
Zeus went to the bridge on 9/15/2020 and Isabelle went on 6/5/2021
We love you always babies!
Born feral, she was the only survivor of a raccoon attack when she became a part of my family. She was a tiny girl with a big heart, a big purr, a big voice, and a big personality, an affectionate girl who played hard, sharpened hard, and was protective of her home, her brother and sisters, and of me.
She fought a hard battle with cancer, injection-site fibrosarcoma.
She will always be loved. She will always be missed. She will always be remembered.
“Though she be little, she is fierce” – William Shakespeare
Stanley 2012- 2020
Stanley was born feral, but was abandoned as a very young kitten, possibly because he was blind. He was an unusually large kitten who grew to become an extraordinarily large cat. He never learned how to play with most toys, but he enjoyed his catnip bananas and cigars, and he loved to sing. He never learned to groom himself, but he had a sister who watched over him, and he followed her everywhere.
He will always be loved. He will always be missed. He will always be remembered.
“I’m not a smart man, but I know what love is” – Forrest Gump
My beloved daughter who stood beside me through some of the roughest parts of my life.
She will always be loved. She will always be missed. She will always be remembered.

Simba 2006 - 2021 The smartest, strongest, sweetest boy. We will remember him always!
Maggie Mae -
Smartest dog ever, constantly entertaining, and will always be loved and missed.
Blondie November 5th, 2007 to October 9th, 2020.
You were the best of the best. Never a day that you didn’t want to play or give us love.
We miss and love you so much.
Baloo, you were truly the sweetest, funniest little soul and I miss you terribly. Thank you for making my life so much richer and full of love. I’m heartbroken you never got to meet our baby, but he will grow up knowing of our furry guardian angel in the bow tie collar.
I love you, Baby Bear.
Thanks Sam for your unconditional love!
You ll always be in my heart!!
Miss you everyday!!♥️
On Dec 28-2003, our Westie puppy (Rudy) was born. He completed our family on March 7, 2004. He was my best friend, my kids “awesome” dog, and though my husband won’t admit out loud- his best buddy. For over 17 1/2 years, he was the best dog. He was always there for all of us- and now, his absence is daunting. It broke all of our hearts when we had to guide him to the rainbow bridge, but knowing he is no longer in pain, eases the hurt a Lil bit.
We will all, love you Rudy- I hope the treats are endless. Love and miss you Rudy❤️🌈
Cricket passed away 8/17/21. She brought us so much happiness and joy over the years. I miss her daily. Rip cricket I’m glad your in a better place now.
Little Ruby-Ru Ru-Rubes-Thing one- you had a ruff start but you had me for 17 years! You were a feisty one but I loved you anyway. I miss you my Roo!
He was a great companion always by our side. Special part of the family. Love and miss you. 2007- 9/17/2021.
