A Best Friends Angels Rest Pet Memorial


2016 – 2023

He was handsome, gentle, charming, and loved every single person he ever met. Somewhat of a celebrity in our neighborhood, everyone knew his name before they knew ours. He connected us to people of all ages and walks of life and backgrounds, people we probably never would have spoken to had it not been for George.

He never got into anything or chewed anything up except for crayons. Crayons were his vice. He once ate an entire 64 crayon box and pooped colors for a week.

An hour before he died, we hung up our stockings and our daughter wanted George’s stocking next to hers: “He’s my best friend Mommy.” As any dog person knows, they aren’t just dogs , they’re family. He was our steady rock in the hardest of times, an expert cuddler, an unconditional source of comfort and support, an indescribable presence that is so acutely and painfully missed now that he’s gone.

He loved the beach and tennis balls and his stuffed toys but he loved spending time on the couch with his family most of all. We wanted so much more time with you sweet boy, we loved you so much.

Here at Best Friends, animals have such a special place in our lives. We honor those pets we’ve loved and those who need our help today. At Best Friends, we keep pets in our hearts


Leaving a personal story, memory, or words of support for a pet’s family is a heartfelt way to pay tribute and provide comfort. As part of your remembrance, we also invite you to leave a virtual token along with your words — similar to our tradition here at the Sanctuary of leaving stones, beloved items, or small toys on the graves of cherished animals.
George & I shared time together. I was his Auntie Colleen, blessed to have had walks & overnight sleepovers since 2018. We had a special bond that I will always hold dear. What a wonderful gift to have had him in my life.

What is it about dogs? They are:
Our best friends, Loyal, Forgiving,
Always excited to see us, Protective, and Loving. George possessed all of these qualities and more. Although He crossed the Rainbow Bridge too early, we appreciate the wonderful time we had with him here.

Georgie was my loving grand dog. I helped to pick him out of the litter. I loved taking him on long walks, grooming him, and getting him cheeseburgers at McDonalds drive through. He slept on my bed when I visited. He was the sweetest most gentle dog I’ve ever known and never met a person he didn’t love He always checked my backpack and suitcase when I arrived, he knew I always brought him a present. Our hearts are shattered losing him, but so much fuller for having loved him. Run free darling Georgie , and hope you have tons of squeaky tennis balls.
