"Blessings come from four loving paws...," and here are their stories.  We remember those who have left an indelible mark on our lives and our hearts.

February 18, 2014: We have been seeing Dr. Shepard for our pets since he has opened. When our Angel slid on the kitchen floor and broke her leg, we immediately to her to Dr. Shepard. Her back left leg was indeed broken near the hip. Because of her age of 14 years, he said that the surgery would most likely not be successful. They took very good care of us and were so compassionate in their care of our Angel. When we laid our Angel to rest, I looked around and the staff were tearful and empathetic in feeling our sorrow. We have two more dogs and two cats that also get the "loving" care from Dr. Shepard and his staff. Thank you to all of you for being who you are and may God continue to bless your hands with kindness and healing.


December 6, 2013: Ashley was a very special dog she was my childhood pet who lived to be 15 years old we all miss her dearly and there will never be another dog like her. I am so happy I was with her to the end and I could not have asked for a better dog to have growing up. December 5, 2013

August 8, 2013
Do not stand at my grave and weep
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.
When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I did not die.
Mary Elizabeth Frye

Thank you so much for your patience, understanding and compromises for us. We love you guys so much. I have never had a better vet than you guys. All our love and thanks,  The Buchholz Family

August 5, 2013:  Heaven welcomed a new Angel named Charlie, which also means there was a broken hearted family saying good-bye to their own precious angel, Charlie....We are sending all our love and healing prayers to Nancy, Don and Breanna Gile. Charlie was such a beautiful soul, and we will miss him very much. "If there is a Heaven, it is certain our animals are to be there. Their lives become so interwoven with our own, it would take more than an Archangel to detangle them." We love you guys~
