We Remember Sophie My heart is broken.....Sophie crossed the Rainbow Bridge today. She has been my baby girl and my shadow for 16 1/2 yrs. I want to thank the staff at Woodland Vet Hosp....they were so kind and caring and made sure Sophie didn't suffer. I decided she just didn't want to move again!!! I love you Soph!! - Pam Setliff
We Remember Wendy A very sad day is upon us as our beloved girl Wendy crossed over the Rainbow Bridge March 2, 2019. We were indescribably blessed to have her in our home and hearts for 13 years. When we adopted this sweet, (estimated) 3-year-old girl Jan. 21, 2006, she was beset with a myriad medical challenges. At the time, we didn’t know what the future held for her, but in the ensuing days, through our own research, we discovered all her symptoms — gray, unhealthy skin, thin and absent hair, weakness while walking, neurological issues, etc. all pointed to one cause: her thyroid. And after Dr. Banish at Woodland sent in her blood sample for evaluation, we were proven right. Within two weeks after her Soloxine kicked in, she was running, playing, and showing the beginnings of a beautiful new black coat. Through a couple years of my stint in Real Estate, she was my traveling buddy, accompanying me on trips to scope out rural properties for clients. She enjoyed nothing more than those rides in the truck... after all, dogs love trucks!  As the years rolled by, Wendy helped welcome our granddaughters - Addie, 9; and Autumn, 2, into our home. We could always count on her to be a gentle companion for them as well, so much so that Autumn’s first order of business at our house is to “go see Wendy.”  The past year had been a difficult process, watching her age catch up to her and take its inevitable toll. Her once energetic, leash-tugging walk slowed to a ponderous, often reluctant effort. The walks through the neighborhood became longer and slower with each passing week. It was very sad seeing her lose interest in her surroundings in the waning weeks of her life, and it was clear she was reaching the end of a long trail. When we brought her to the Yorktown emergency veterinary clinic that morning, the attending vet said her kidneys were in an advanced state failure, which caused her weight loss over the past few months and the dehydration that started yesterday. He said it was clear the combination of the kidney ailment and the severe arthritis caused her intense pain. She’d stopped eating and drinking yesterday afternoon and she declined from there, leaving but one sad yet necessary act of love and compassion, and at 8:05 a.m., she passed peacefully into a forever sleep. For 13 years, Wendy was cared for and loved by Dr. Amor and her staff -- Casey, David, Margaret and all other past and present on the staff at Woodland... Mary and I could always rest assured our girl was in the best of hands, whether for boarding or veterinary care. Thank you fine people from the bottom of our hearts. Our hearts hurt now, but we are somewhat comforted to know our beloved Wendy awaits us on the other side. Farewell, sweet girl... you are forever loved.
