Orion was the best most loving and adventurous akita I have ever known he is my best friend and confidant. He lived a very adventurous life getting to explore Arizona, Colorado, Washington, California, and Idaho. He truly lived a full life.

Orion Maloy the best American Akita the world has ever known. You came into my life and I swore I would never let you go, unfortunately now I have to. We always knew bloat was something that could happen, but you were supper kita so we thought it could never happen to you. Well sometimes fate doesn't go the way you think... You are my best friend, and have ment more to my life then could ever be expressed. I love you Orion and boy are you going to be missed buddy. Thank you for all the time we had. Now go run fast and free across that rainbow bridge to your son Mintaka he is waiting for you and wants to play something fierce. You will always be with me in my hart even though I can no longer reach out to you with my hand, I love you Orion. We will walk together side by side again one day. Till then good bye my old friend....

Keiko 6/9/2012 - 7/9/2020. Michigan

Pup from Windy and Kuma Sr.

I miss him, he was my guy, my shadow, my "alarm" for anything out of the ordinary.

The reason I vacuumed sometimes twice a day

I still leap away from the bed when I get up because his spot was right next to me, always, every night.

This beautiful boy Yoshi, out of our Karmin and Kuma Jr crossed over the Bridge 11/08/2020. From the dreaded bloat. He was born 03/21/2013 and was such a loved member of his family. He will be missed greatly.

This is Ren. He was born 05/09/2013. He passed in March 2020. He was a great family member to the Rennolet family. He was a beautiful boy out of our Mae Ling and Kuma Jr. He will be very much missed. He had a great temperament and loved his family. We are honoring Ren.

This is Kuma. She was a loved and loving member of the Bolle family. She was born 12/13/2012 to our late Windy and Kuma Junior. (Jr.)

I have no idea who wrote this.

The love for an animal is real.

They tell you not to cry.

They tell you that it's just a dog, not a human being.

They tell you that the pain will be over.

They tell you that the animals don't know that they have to die.

They tell you that it's important not to let him suffer.

They tell you that you can have another one.

They tell you it's going to happen to you.

They tell you that there is more pain.

But they don't know how many times you've looked into your dog’s eyes.

They don't know how many times you and your dog have looked into darkness alone.

They don't know how many times your dog was the only one who was by your side.

They don't know how much fear you have

at night when you wake up with your grief.

They don't know how many times your dog slept near you.

They don't know how much you've changed since the dog has become a part of your life.

They don't know how many times you hugged him when he was sick.

They don't know how many times you've acted like you didn't see his hair getting whiter.

They don't know how many times you've talked to your dog, the only one who really hears.

They don't know that it was just your dog who knew you were in pain.

They don't know what it feels like to see your old dog trying to get up to say hello.

They don't know that if things went wrong, the only one who didn't go is your dog.

They don't know that your dog trusts you every moment of his life, even in the last.

They don't know how much your dog loved you and how it is enough for him to be happy, because you loved him.

They don't know that crying for a dog is one of the most noble, significant, true, purest and warmest things you can do.

They don't know when the last time you moved him with trouble... making sure it didn’t hurt him.

They don't know what it felt like to pet their face in the last moments of their life....

In Memory of all those who went over the rainbow bridge. You all have a place forever in our hearts

Another handsome boy crossed over the bridge a little bit ago. He was the staple of the family. He will be missed terribly.

Pilgrim who was raised with Jingle Bell (above) passed the Rainbow Bridge as they say today 12/17/20. He was very much loved by his family and had more friends than he could imagine. He is leaving a big hole that may never be filled.

He was born 10/14/09. His parents were the late Allen's Anastasia and Allen's Mr. Smith. 

It is with a very heavy heart I have to say this big fella crossed over he bridge today, 12/26/20. He was a litter mate to the one above named Kuma. The Bolle's . He was very loved by his family and will be badly missed. Another 2020 tragedy.

This is Coney as a baby and Coney loving the snow. Snow and his children were his all time joy.

This​ is Meiko Hibi. She recently crossed over the one way bridge. She was truly an important part of her family. She will be missed every day.

Below is Charcoal aka "Coal". He recently crossed the dreaded bridge too. He was a brother to "Ren" above. He was a cherished member of this family. His passing has caused a big hole in their hearts. 

This a beautiful girl named Cheyenne. She lost her fight for life on 9/16/22. She was born to our Alice and Yoshi on 9/06/2017. She found a great home with the Mark Smith family and loved them for 5 years. Way too young to cross over the dreaded Rainbow Bridge.

No one knows how awful it is to lose a canine friend unless you've experienced it. Rest in Peace sweet Cheyenne.

We have to say goodbye to this great and wonderful girl. Her family is grieving her loss. She passed away 10/16/2022 

Her name is Arabella's Takara Nala. Her parents were Allen's Arabella and Allen's Kuma Jr. Both of those have crossed the bridge also.

Takara's human mother said she liked jogging, chasing Squirrels and hanging out with her family.

She was an important part of the Oakes family and left a giant hole in their hearts.

Today my best friend gained his Angel wings. He came into this world over 12 years ago. And for 12 years we had a protector who always made sure we were safe since he was 7 weeks old he was growling and never took shit from anyone. You were truly a once in a lifetime dog. You refused to use the bathroom unless it was grass. By far the easiest dog to potty train. I’ll never forget freezing my ass off in a blizzard because you weren’t ready to come inside. I’ll never forget always play fighting with you and how you hated people stepping on your paws and you would hide them under your belly and just use your mouth to nip at my foot. I’ll never forget how You were not a fan of fetch cause it was clearly beneath you. You came into this world when I lost my grandpa and gave me comfort that I’ll never forget. I hope you are resting easy and can forgive me for anything I ever did to you. I truly loved you and you will always be my best friend. Hachiko Zizumbo you were the best blessing to this family.
