Every spirit builds itself a house, and beyond its house a world, and beyond its world a heaven. 

Know then that world exists for you.

 IN LOVING MEMORY Dog's Best Friends



In memory of Jennifer Helm

To Chad Helm

I was deeply saddened to hear about the passing of your mom - She was an absolute sweetheart - Never got the opportunity to meet in person but we talked / emailed about everyday - She was the best customer service gal and no one will ever be able to replace her. May you find comfort in the cherished moments you shared together and may her memory bring you peace. During this time of loss, I want you to know that you and your family are in my thoughts and prayers.

In memory of Marcy Rothermel who was a real dog rescuer.

from Cissy and Peter Van Vleet

This is in honor of Arla McGuire, a devoted poodle lover, fantastic mother and friend to us all. Her smile, irreverent sense of humor and forthrightness endeared her to me immediately. Her strength of character was unlike any I have ever met and she was generous and kind to a fault. She is no longer on this earth but her daughter continues to carry the torch for her Mom both physically and emotionally. This is not only a tribute to Arla, but to the wonderful daughter she molded into a strong woman who had the fortitude and kindness to take care of her beloved dog, Mimi. Cat, you should be proud of the woman you have become and every time you look in that mirror, you will also see your mom, and that reflection will carry you through the hard times. Thank you for being you. It brings me joy to see Arla when I see you. Patty and Hazel Frank send their love.

n honor of our dear friend, Bruce Mews. Bruce was a dog lover and our labradoodle, Maggie, considered him one of her best friends ever. May Bruce - and Maggie- rest in peace. Hopefully they are now playing with a tennis ball on a heavenly coast. (We adopted Maggie from NorCal Poodle Rescue in January 2009 and she passed away in October of 2020. We miss her immensely.)
Thank you for all you do to support dogs in need.

With sympathy for the loss of your mother Marylin Squeri

Curt Cournale

In loving memory of my mother, Marylin Squeri. One of the best experiences that I shared with my mother was finding and adopting a little white poodle from Nor Cal Poodle Rescue. Mom named him Riley and loved, cared for and spoiled her little boy. My sister, "little brother" Riley, and I are heartbroken because of her passing.
All three of us stayed by her side to comfort her until the end. When my sister and I opened the letter mom left us, it read "Take care of My Riley for me". Mom, don't worry ~ we will.

From your daughters Karen Howard and Alayne Kinnaman

With our deepest sympathy on the passing of Ms. Marylin Squeri. May she rest in peace!
