My Little Man
I literally grew up with this little guy. He was more then the family pet. He WAS family, I saw him like my little four legged brother. I remember moving to this country with my parents when I was 5 years old, and the next day my father brought us to this house where we picked up what would be my best friend for the next 16 years. I will never forget the drive home, craddling my new puppy Mickey in my arms as we just stared at one another the whole ride home, filled with curiousity. Mickey was a full bred Duchshund. The first dog that I actually remember having. Mickey was only memory left of my father after passing away a year later. 16 long years feels like an internity, but Mickey lived a long beautiful life full of adventures, love and spoildness. As I mentioned, I was 5 years old when I recieved him. Now 22 years of age, I have lost my pride and joy. I felt lost and confused. watching him taking his lasts breathes. it was the hardest and scariest thing I had ever experienced. I didn't know what to do, nor who to call. I called my local vet and they gave me the Pet Crematory info. They highly recommended this place so I didn't hesitate. The owner of Cape Coral Pet Crematory was the most helpful, kindest and comforting guy I have ever met as an owner of a business. He was at my service whenever it was most convenient for me, even if he was out of town or on his day off. His service was incredible, and I couldn't thank you more.
My sweet Snoopy
First, I want to say THANK YOU to J.W. who made this task so easy and almost painless. I have 2 doxies, one 13 and the other was 7, I always thought my 13 year old would be the first to leave this earth, however it didn't happen that way and I was in no way prepared for what we had to do - my poor little Snoopy appearantly had cancer from what we can tell and it progressed very quickly -- we tried for almost 2 weeks to make him better before we found out that we had done all we could. When it came time, we were going to use another place in Ft Myers that we had aquired a bouchure on to do the creamation, as the vet was preparing I sent my husband out to get the cell phone to call the 'other' place as they claimed to do private creamation as I have found out that if you don't ask for private and you want your pet's ashes, be prepared to get more than just theirs. Well the wonderful tech at Viscaya=Prado asked if we wanted ashes and I immediately said we did and that we had a place, well luckily she mentioned CCPC and that they were local well known to the office and other techs...she assured me that it was private and told me the charge which was so much more reasonable then the other place - after all we had been to the office at least 4 times within a month along with a 5 day stay at the vet hosptial. When my husband returned with phone in hand, thank goodness he hadn't called - I told him about CCPC and he agreed to use them. I am so happy we did and we met with J.W. the next evening and he made us feel so at ease, as most pet owners know we've lost a family member and being treated as such is important - I know J.W. and his staff took care of my Snoopy until he was given back to me in the beautiful urn that was custom made to my specifications (photo on site). I will be forever greatful for such a caring business -- thanks == you and your staff have a 'special' place in heaven as far as I am concerned.
Thank You So Very Much For The Caring Support
First, I just wanted to say Thank you so very much for the caring support that you and your wife Peaches gave to our family, during a time that was so hard we could barely take it.
Our family member (dog), Bailey in 2 days time deteriorated so fast that we knew we had no other choice but to end her suffering and have her put to sleep. She was part Rot and part Lab and her hips just gave out on her and it seemed everything was just shutting down. Bailey was our first baby girl, not just a dog.
We took her to the Viscaya-Prado Vet Hospital and they treated us like we had been long time customers and never had been there. Fabulous staff there. They had told us that Juergen had already been there but they would call to see if we could take Bailey to him, and he said he would come back and get her when we were done saying our goodbyes to her, so she wouldnt have to be alone in a freezer til her cremation. And he kept his word, cuz as we were leaving he was showing up to get her. We were told we could pick up her ashes 2 days later at the vet hospital, so when I called to find out when we could get her, Juergen hadn't been there yet and they were closing, I asked if I could call him and of course they were very gracious and gave me his direct number.
When I called and explained who I was, he didn't hesitate to tell me that we could come by andpick Bailey up that day, he was on the road and as soon as he got back to the Crematory he would call us to come and pick her up. And his wife called and said to come on over when they got back.
Both Juergen and Peaches are very kind and caring people. I expected when he brought Baileys ashes out to me the standard, ashes in a bag and a cardboard box from what I was told from other people. And normally that is how is goes, but Juergen brought Bailey out to me in a beautiful wooden urn that has gorgeous carvings of flowers and vines on the top and it was sealed and he didnt expect a penny more for it.
Normally that urn would of cost us 60 dollars or better and he gave it us, out of the kindness of his heart and the wonderful staff at the vet hospital told him to treat us extra good cuz we were great people and loved our Bailey very much. She was with us 11yrs and The Cape Crematory, Juergen and Peaches, and the Viscaya-Prado Vet Hospital made a horrible time much easier on our family.
And we will never be able to thank you enough.
Please post this on your website so other people will know what wonderful people and a business you all are!
Sincerely, Angie Keister
