"It came to me that every time I lose a dog they take a piece of my heart with them. 
And every new dog who comes into my life gifts me with a piece of their heart.
If I live long enough, all the components of my heart will be dog, and I will
become as generous and loving as they are" Zuccaro

In Loving Memory of Bell Sundberg
      from Rose and Mya Engler 

There once was an old gal named Bell
Who came from a place we'll call hell
It was cold and very scary
and it made her oh so weary
She just dreamt of escaping her cell
                                        Then Paphaven came to her aid
                                        Miss Bell knew that she just had it made
                                        She moved in with Nancy
                                        and it made it feel fancy,
                                        And a warm bed is now where she laid

                                    So Miss Bell's real dream finally came true
                                       A furever home where she didn't feel blue
                                       She was warm and well fed
                                       and had a nice comfy bed
                                      And there were plenty of bones to chew.
                                           Years went by and Miss Bell did grow old
                                       But she knew in her heart she would never be sold
                                       She lived on Rum River
                                       and never did shiver
                                           And that's how her story was told.

                                Bell now lives in our hearts and our minds
                                       And her friends really miss her, her kind
                                       At Rainbow Bridge there are no pants,
                                       now you can really, really dance
                                             We love you Miss Bell, your the best we could find.

Miss Lucky Penny, my Papillon Princess....
you were "the dog of my life". I will always miss you.

  In memory of sweet Beloved Pearl.  You brought more joy into my life than you will ever know, my precious baby girl. I will forever miss the way  your eyes always lit up when you saw me and the way you
followed my  every step. I will  miss the way you 
got all excited each time I came home from work and
would run in circles 
with happiness. Your passing has left a huge hole in my heart, Pearlie girlie, but I
 know that now you are flying free at Rainbow Bridge and are no longer suffering from the cancer that
took over your beautiful little body. You lived a long life of 14 years, and I am so very proud to have been
your Mommy. One day we will be together again, my angel baby. I know you will be waiting with excitement
to see me and will once again have those bright little eyes light up and run in circles when I come to you.
I love you now and forever, Pearl!

In loving memory of Kandi Sue Norton, who was stollen from us on Sunday, 
March 14, 2010. She was the love of my life, my "heart" dog! Kandi will forever 
be missed and loved, and we will always cherish the wonderful memories she 
gave us during the five years we were so blessed to be her Mama and Daddy. 
You are in my prayers everyday, my precious little angel girl. Mama loves you 
now and always. Only God knows how very much I miss you, Kandi.

                                        In loving memory of Stella, now the brightest star in heaven.
A pet’s time on earth is far too short, especially for those that love them.  We borrow them, really, just for a while, and during these brief years they are generous enough to give us all their love, every inch of their spirit and heart, until one day there is nothing left…. Deep down we somehow always knew that this journey would end.  We knew that if we gave our hearts they would be broken.   But give them we must for it is all they ask in return.  When the time comes, and the road curves ahead to a place we cannot see, we give one final gift and let them run on ahead, young and whole once more.
“Go now and run free, good friend,” we say, until our journey comes full circle and our paths cross again.  And our journey will come full circle.      (Excerpt from "The Journey")
  She is dearly remembered and sadly missed by Janice, her “aunt” Judy, and her grandmom Robina.

Remembering TOBY BURCH, beloved Papillon of Martha and Jim Burch, who has passed over the Rainbow Bridge.
       Brian Westra

Pepper had her little quirks, including turning into Cujo at the vet’s office, but she was the sweetest little girl despite them. She was always ready to greet everyone who visited, and was especially loved by her grandmom. She loved her walks and would sit patiently waiting by the door-until she decided she had waited long enough and let you know about it in no uncertain terms. She could also wake you up in the morning if she needed to go out; sleeping in was not an option if Pepper was ready to get up. She was happy with a belly rub, a treat, and a comfortable bed. She is lovingly remembered by mom Janice, Aunt Judy, grandmom Robina; and very much missed by papillon sister Jinx.
And think of her as living
In the hearts of those she touched
For nothing loved is ever lost-
And she was loved so much.

(From “Her Journey’s Just Begun” by Ellen Brennaman)

Gizmo who was always a Happy Boy and taught us to laugh all the time!
 His paw print is forever on our hearts.
                                          Miss you Good Boy!

Lexie will always be as close as a memory. It will be the little things that we will   
 remember: her cute little “aroo” howl for food, her dancing feet, her toy twice her
 size, and her endless search for the perfect lap to sit on. We cherish these
 memories as she was cherished in life, and what the heart has once cherished,
 it can never lose.  

There are no goodbyes for us. Wherever you are, you will always be in my heart.....Gandhi

GABRIELLA known as GABBY, the cause
of my passion to rescue Papillons.  Loved deeply by her Mom and thankful for the 15 years with her.
           Jan Jorolan

It only takes a few minutes as a member of PapHaven to see that our director, Jan Jorolan is our own little “Energizer Butterfly”. She is always available to anyone trying to contact her. Her bright and happy “Hi there” is a welcome sound when one of us is trying to deal with our own problems or worries. What many of you may not know is that Jan recently had shoulder surgery. While recovering some of our members decided to make a “nice memory” out of her situation! A beautiful plant was sent to her home and additional donations were made.The board made an executive decision to donate the remainder of the funds we collected to PapHaven in Jan’s honor. And guess what? We were so sneaky about it that Jan never found out until now. It is just a small token of our respect and admiration for our fearless “Energizer Butterfly”.
               Thanks Jan for all you do.
               Your PapHaven Family

Stryker Houdini, my beautiful sunny memory; jumping high and running fast; racing Willie to
                               catch  the squirrel; loving FOOD; snuggling; alone time with me; using his outside 
                               voice to scare away intruders or meet me at the door....Gone way too soon.
                                    We will remember......           
Elizabeth Nesbitt

My dear Rocky -my first Papillon. Because of him I became interested in the breed which led me
        to Papillon Haven Rescue. It is because of him I have since fostered over 15 Papillons.
        It's because of him, those lives were saved.
                                 I will always love you.

                                                Nancy Sundberg

My mother Zelda and our little papillon girl Bonnie were both flown away with the angels within 3 days of each other. Even though they will be missed dearly, at least they will not suffer anymore.

              "In the arms of the angels,
               Fly away from here.
              You're in the arms of the angels,
               May you find some comfort there."- Sarah McLachlan

                                                          We miss you both so much our little Bon Bon 2001 - 2013
                                                            and my mother Zelda Murray 1931 - 2013.

In memory of Pat and George Harris with Heavensent Papillons
They were our first Papillon friends, as well as our mentors.
They were the owners of our second Papillon love, Heavensent Nike Air.
Although we already owned one papillon, their support and friendship further influenced
our love of the Papillon breed.

In Loving Memory of Jim Watson.
Our Friend and Director of PapHaven, has gone to the Rainbow Bridge to gather up the Paps waiting to cross over with him.
He was the dear husband of Andy Watson, who together have two wonderful sons. Both Andy and Jim have been active and supportive of PapHaven and have had many foster Papillons pass through their home. The picture is of Andy & Jim with Bonnie – their first Papillon who was responsible for their interest in helping to rescue Papillons and also for taking management positions with PapHaven.
In memory of Charlotte Bacon, who dreamed of becoming a veterinarian. This angel was taken from this world in the tragedy at Sandyhook Elementary. Her favorite color was pink.
Honoring Nell McKay by Elizabeth & Dudley Schneider
REMEMBERING  Marion Smith DVM for her cheerful and excellent veterinarian care of my many animals.  Bootz misses do I.

Born Feb. 4, 1957, and passed from this life on March 31, 2014. Her very large family was always near, as were her many pets and friends. She was an accomplished veterinarian and an animal advocate both locally and nationally. She opened her practice as All Creatures Animal Hospital in 1991. She dedicated her life to the care and treatment of all animals regardless of the ability of their owners to pay and dedicated many hours of her time to animals in need.

Her great capacity of love and caring for all local pets will be greatly missed, but the tradition will continue as her practice continues on.
She was a friend to both myself and my pets as well as to our rescue organization, Papillon Haven Rescue.
           Jan Jorolan

I'd Like the memory of me
to be a happy one.
I'd like to leave an after glow
of smiles when life is done.
I'd like to leave an echo
whispering softly down the ways,
of happy times and laughing times
and bright and sunny days.
I'd like the tears of those who
grieve, to dry before the sun
​of happy memories that I leave
when my life is done.​​​​​​​​​​​​​

under the "Pacemaker" prefix. Pictured with Dick is their national
speciality winner, Ch. Pacemaker Ultra Supreme. They were some of the first
Papillon people I met when I became interested in the breed. They became my
friends and invited me to ride along to my first Papillon specialty show.
Always kind and generous people, they were friends, mentors, and traveling
companions for many years. Dick was a devoted husband, father, and
gentleman. Thank you Dick for many happy days and wonderful memories...till
we meet again!

"There is a cycle of love and death that shapes the lives of those who choose to travel in the company of animals. It is a cycle unlike any other. To those who have never lived through its turnings or walked its rocky path, our willingness to give our hearts with full knowledge they will be broken seems incomprehensible. Only we know how small a price we pay for what we receive; our grief, no matter how powerful it may be, is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given." by Suzanne Clothier
Judy Geroni
Our wonderful Troy, died a peaceful death Nov. 10, 2016. He was 16 +yo and had not been doing well for sometime.   He was my very first foster Papillon.  His adoptive parents, Butch and Jackie Cantwell, loved him greatly - as he loved them.... and for some mysterious reason, he always remembered me when our paths crossed at PCA Nationals.
You will always be in my heart.
