After an unexpected surgery, resulting from an unexpected health condition left our beloved Boxer dog, Kramer, in a serious health condition but his prognosis was favourable and expected to fully recover.
Kramer was a big boy, he weighed 120 pounds and was a rescue dog. We had the good fortune of rescuing him at five and a half months old, thanks to our fabulous Veterinarian.
Kramer was a gentle giant and would not hurt a fly.
Unfortunately Kramer passed in the morning of February 22nd 2021 after being at home for only three days after his surgery.
Since Kramer has now departed us he must now travel to the Rainbow Bridge alone.
Once Kramer arrives at the Rainbow Bridge he will have plenty of time to lookup and meet his six sisters who travelled there before him. While all seven are together waiting for their forever parents to arrive, they will have plenty of time to play and frolic in the sun together and discuss their living with us, their forever parents.
When we both pass-on we will be heading first to the Rainbow Bridge to be united with all seven of our departed Boxers. Once there, and spotted, we are very sure we will be “attacked” with love, kisses and tears from all seven of our pets. ( Boxer dogs are known to shed tears of joy and sorrow)
When we are all united again all of us will be crossing the Rainbow Bridge heading for the land where there is never any pain again, all medical problems are erased and life is everlasting.
The morning that Kramer passed-on it was then we discovered that the crematorium we used in the past was no longer in business, it has been purchased
and controlled by a conglomerate. This news left us in a difficult spot.
Searching for another pet crematorium on the internet was virtually useless, all had conditions we were not in favour of. That was until we contacted Resting Paws.
Resting Paws were exactly what we wanted, we knew from the first minute we talked to Sabine. She was understanding, helpful and a pleasure to talk to from her very first word.
Plans were made for a private cremation in two days, the exact way we had hoped for and planned. Complete arrangements were finalized by phone including the day and time for the cremation of Kramer to take place.
The day of the cremation we arrived at the site and met with Patrick. The two-dog welcoming committee greeted us as we arrived. The two dogs were a welcome site.
After the cremation had taken place Patrick had everything completed. The remains were in the urn, paper work completed and everything neatly placed in a bag for travelling safely home.
Our dealing with Sabine and Patrick at Resting Paws was nothing short of professionalism in the highest degree. All facets of Kramer’s cremation was perfect and we were more that pleased.
It is for sure if we need that type of service in the future Resting Paws will be the one we will contact. If friends of ours are in need of this service we will highly recommend Resting Paws to them.
In closing we want to thank you both, Sabine & Patrick, for your outstanding service and compassion when a dearly beloved family member of ours, Kramer, has departed us.
Special Thanks to Sabine and Patrick.
Marlyn, Earl and Kramer.
A big thank you to Sabine & Patrick for taking such good care of our dog Carson after his sudden passing.
You truly are beautiful, compassionate angels. Your kindness was very much appreciated.
Stephanie & Dean Carle
Dear Patrick & Sabine,
Dale & I would like to thank you from the bottom of our hearts, for taking such exceptional care of our baby, Whisper.
You did an amazing service for us & Whisper. The pictures definitely show the care you put into your love of animals. Whisper looked so cleaned up and beautiful in the pictures you sent.
We’d like to thank you again for your services.
It was, hard, yet so nice to be met by your own dogs when driving in.
We will definitely suggest you – and ONLY you to anyone looking for services that only you can provide. You really made a huge impression on both of us.
Tammy & Dale.
Our family cat James passed away very suddenly and unexpectadly at home.. and not knowing what to do with his remains, I took to google.
SO glad I found this place. Sabine was very understanding and so respectful. We got to say our final goodbyes to our little guy at home and then he was picked up. The service from beginning to end was incredible. Thank you Resting Paws, you made our last goodbye a little easier.
Our little Ragdoll cat “Minx” who was 17 years young became very ill suddenly and passed away at home last week. We knew that her time to go was coming and contacted Sabine the evening before the inevitable happened. The care, compassion and professionalism shown by Resting Paws was appreciated and comforting. Sabine picked up her little remains and handled her with kindness and genuine empathy…..My son and I brought her home on Monday….virtual hugs all round.
I highly recommend you allow Resting Paws to service the needs of your departed fur babies; you will find their attentive and sincere care comforting…..Thank you Sabine and Patrick. Xxx
