July 2, 2021.

He was the joy of our lives.

Magoo was a free-spirited dog, he was friendly, mischievous, loved his food and treats and was eager to please and be loved  He was adopted by us and although we had him for 6 years, it seemed like a lifetime.  He was easy to love and a joy to care for.

His Mommy and Daddy (Don and Maria) miss him so much and will honor and miss him for our  entire lifetime! Cherish the memories as long as we live of him and our beloved Amber (above).  

His relatives in CT will miss him dearly too!

We care for other dogs and are thankful that we have the opportunity to continue to give love to dogs we care for and this will soften our burden.

We love you Magoo and hope we see you and other pets that have gone before you and after you that pass our threshold.

You were a special little guy!  That smile, smirk, howling!  It will all be missed by special boy!

Roscoe passed away October 19 2020

Sweet and so loveable ... Roscoe was a family member of Laura, Dan and their family.           They loved him with heart and soul.           Roscoe was also loved by many who knew him and Don & Maria of The Dog Tutor who cared for him. We loved when Roscoe visited our home.

Roscoe had such a sweet temperament and was very playful!

The rainbow becomes more brighter and colorful with Roscoe in it where he can be free of pain and play with all his new animal friends.

Roscoe will always be remembered by all people who loved him, especially his loving parents.     He  brought so much joy into their lives.

Love you Roscoe!  You have your wings!


Just this side of Heaven is a placed called Rainbow Bridge.

When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge.  There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together.  There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor.  Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance.  His bright eyes are intent.  His eager body quivers.  Suddenly... he begins to run from the group flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted! And when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again.  The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Alex (Right)


Alex was a joy to take care of. He was the protector of his sister Honey (Right) and they were inseparable.

He is missed by his family and The Dog Tutor.
