Isidore Rosenfeld Humrickhouse 2001-2012
Our dearest Isidore expired Thursday afternoon. We four were in the emergency room when his brave little heart stopped. Iz was selfless and endearing to the end. James Thurber wrote that "If I have any beliefs about immortality, it is that certain dogs I have known will go to heaven, and very, very few persons." If ever a dog goes to heaven, it is surely Izzy. How could a dog so loving with a white heart on his forehead not? To paraphrase the words Queen Victoria had inscribed on her beloved Cavalier, Dasha's tombstone at Windsor,"If you would live beloved and die regretted, profit by the example of Isidore." We are so grateful for his time with us and will miss him greatly. Thursday was the first day of Fiona's life without her dear cousin, who so adored her and whose interests she always managed to advance. We spent some time with Izzy's body and Fiona laid her head next to his. We hope she understands, but when we were leaving the hospital, she stopped outside the door to turn back, as though she didn't want to leave him, and seems reluctant to go for walks without him. We are doing all we can to comfort each other, but she is likely doing the best job of all.

My baby, my angel, the love of my life...
I found you at the Humane Society in 2004. All the kittens were playing and having fun, yet you were the only baby crying at the gate. I held you, and you instantly fell asleep in my arms. I instantly knew it was you and me forever.
You were with my through college when I didn't have many friends, you were with with me during the good times and bad times. You were with me each year that we moved to a new place, you were with me when we met your dad, you were with me when I got married..
You never had any complaints, you only showed me love and appreciation. You spooned my head on the pillow every night, you begged me for food every morning.
We both thought you were invincible because mommy worked at the veterinary hospital. We knew we would be together forever.
Then one day your blood work suggested something was wrong. One thing lead to the next, and before we knew it, we went for your chemotherapy twice a week for the next 5 1/2 months.
Then one day you told me please no more, I am too weak, I just want to be at home with mom and dad and Stewie.
Now I have you still with me, in a beautiful urn with your picture nearby, and a necklace with your ashes that will stay close to my heart.
I will think about you every single day for the rest of my life, and I will keep fresh flowers by your urn and picture at all times. I love you more than life itself, and I can still see and hear you around the apartment. I know you are watching over me, and it is still you and me forever. I love you my baby Kermie.

We wish we could have told you,
in words you'd understand,
We wanted you to stay with us.
This wasn't what we'd planned.

How empty we now feel.
A part of us went with you,
A part that time can't heal.
We wish we had you back again, you left us too soon! Hercules our gentle loving four legged friend

My dear sweet sweet Reeses,
Where to begin...the day we went to get you was the coldest day in Jan. 08. We put you in the car and you went to the bathroom on dads Sox jacket. I knew from there you were definitely a Cubs fan but dad, Jon & Marisa would disagree with Brandon and I. For 2 years you were so heathy and very lovable. The day they found a mass cell tumor on you was one of the worse days of my life, but we let you have the surgery to remove it and started chemo on your 3rd birthday. In Feb. of the following year you were off of chemo and no longer had cancer in your body. What a great burden off my chest and I was happy that you were a fighter. So time went on and you enjoyed your life always playing, jumping, and begging for food.
You always had a problem with getting sick after you ate and it would drive us all crazy!!! You would walk under our feet looking for food in the kitchen. you would sleep on the beds and thinking it was yours because you would spread out and not share. You would jump at the window and park at the people and dogs not to attack just wanted to play like always but you broke several of our blinds and that would make us mad. I would take all of these things back just to have you here with us again. Dad wants to know who will greet him in the middle of the night when he comes home? On Sat. Morning I knew you were sick but thought you had the flu because you didn't wake me up to go outside or to have breakfast. I forced you outside and you went. We all left you except for Jon and when we came back we saw that you had blood in your urine...I called your Dr. and you were seen right away. After that was downhill from there. Sunday morning went to your Dr. and she said your immune system was attacking your red blood cells. We went right away to Blue Pearl hospital to have a blood transfusion...they told me Monday that it didn't work so we told them to give you another transfusion and you were up and down from there. On Tuesday we went to visit you with papa, grandma z. & Aunt Sherri. The Dr. told us they you were not getting oxygen to your brain so we had to make the horrible and devastating decision of letting you go to doggy heaven. Dad & Jon stayed with you, mom was not brave enough because I was selfish I just couldn't let you go which I knew was the best. After you were gone we all came in and hugged and kissed you...we even said a prayer for. I know you knew all of this but just in case I'm letting you know now and we did everything we could but you would never be like our Reeses Pieces that we knew and we know longer wanted you to suffer.
We all miss you and love you so very very much my best friend, one of the sweetest, loyal, friendliset and best dog in the world. Until we meet again my baby Ree-Ree. R.I.P. 10/27/07-10/30/12
Love Mom, Dad, Jon, Brandon, Marisa & Snickys
Loved by Mom, Dad, Jonathan, Brandon, Marisa & of course your buddy for life Snickers. Cared for by Blue Pearl Elkgrove Village.
