The loss of my almost 16 year old Maine Coon, Hoss, was almost more than I could bear. To be able to help him cross the bridge from his own backyard, no cars, no clinics, was the most beautiful gift to me at this devastating time. Dr. Simpson gently entered the yard and with the utmost of discretion and kindness, guided us though this painful time with quiet dignity and peace. I cannot imagine ever doing this most difficult of pet owner responsibilities any other way again.
Thank You, Dr. Simpson, for offering the most beautiful service I could have envisioned for those of us who decide to care for our little borrowed angels. I am beyond grateful.
Kali was such a sweet girl. Never jumped on anyone or bit them. She was such a gentle girl. She will be missed so much. May she Rest In Peace.
Yesterday we had to have our precious precious 11 year old golden retriever, Ruby, put to rest after her battle with cancer. It was the most difficult decision I have ever had to make, but I know it was the right one. Ruby was quite a character and was so loving and fun. She did not drink out of a regular dog bowl, but preferred to turn the bathtub faucet on to drink. She was a calming force in my life and life will not be the same without her. Dr. Simpson came into our life after prayers for guidance from above. She is wonderful. Dear God watch over Ruby until I am there to help out!
Tuesday, July 11, 2017 was a sad day for us. We put to sleep our beautiful, perfectly marked, 17-year-old tabby. As soon as we saw Ms. Harley, we knew she was a part of our family. Ms. Harley, freed from a shelter, spent the remaining 7 years of her life, loved and coddled and spoiled. She had been ailing the last few months, but we realized only recently how much pain she was enduring. Her leap into peace came with the help of Dr. Kim Simpson, a truly loving and compassionate veterinarian that helps people like us deal with the decisions to be made and the pain associated with a pet’s final hours. Her prayers at the end comforted us and they will be with us as we grieve Harley’s passing. SG and JH
Our sweet precious Loki was with us for 17 years. She was born in January of 2000, in Phoenix AZ. She was a charmer, with her curly monkey tail, long eyelashes and demanding presence. She loved sitting on the lap of her favorite human, getting chin rubs and if you stopped petting her before she was ready, she would just head-butt your hand until you gave in and started petting her again. Her favorite toys were her tennis ball and her troll doll. She would hook a claw into her tennis ball, throw it up in the air and then run after it over and over again. She used to spend hours at the top of her cat tower watching the birds outside and chattering at them. Every time we vacuumed the house, she would sit on her ottoman and complain until we put ‘her’ attachment onto the vacuum cleaner and gave her a little vacuuming. She was our funny, quirky, little monkey-tailed girl and we loved her so much. She will be sorely missed and will always have a piece of our hearts. Blessed be little one.

The unconditional love of our dog Sadie. We celebrate her 19 years of life. She was born in 1998 and was 2 years old when we rescued her. My husband Wes and I had not been dating long and we were discussing getting a dog. I said that if we get one, I would like to have a Siberian Husky. one week later at my work place I had just began my new job as receptionist for a Fee attorney’s office and low and behold she showed up at the front door our business. Looking through the glass at me was a beautiful brown and white husky with turquoise eyes. I tried to find the original owners for 6 wks, but to no avail. I knew she was a gift from God and she was perfectly made for our family. Three weeks later we were the proud parents of 8 husky/ Rottweiler puppies. They all had crystal blue eyes and a husky tail; the rest was Rottweiler. It sounds like a strange combination, but they were precious. Everywhere I took Sadie they would call her the angel dog. But when I took her for walks everyone would get out of our way, because they thought she was a wolf. We had them fooled didn’t we Sadie! Her favorite movie was Snow Dogs, her favorite food was bread; she was a carbolic like me. We had a stable where we boarded our horses and I took Sadie for the first time. There was a cat that had a litter and when I went to check on her the kittens were crawling all over her. She just lay there as regal as ever as if this were just an everyday moment. I could fill a book with Sadie moments. She left a almost twenty year legacy of memories, including her bittersweet departure. She got so many kisses and I love you; enough to last an eternity. Other than God, there is no love that you can share than the unconditional love of a pet. Sadie is a household word under our roof. We love you Sadie Bear, but now you will eat at the table Of Jesus Himself. This is comforting to us. Thank you Dr. Simpson for being there for her last moments and for a peaceful departure from this life to the next. God bless you! Brenda and Wes, the proud parents of Sadie Wessels.
If Nichole could write this to Dr. Kim, I know she would say….thank you so much for being such a caring, calming presence for me and my family. Thank you for letting me rest, it’s been a long 16 years and I’m tired and I’m hurting but my body wouldn’t quit, thank for you helping it do that.
Thank you so much for coming out to our home and making Nichole’s last hour much more calming than if we had to drive her to our regular Vet. Having been dumped when she was a pup on our road, she was terrified of cars and we didn’t want her final hour terrified. Your sweet presence and demeanor was so comforting to us, you are an Angel to all the fur babies that need your care. Thank you so very much.
Gunner is a Old English Bulldog who spent his 11 years on this earth as a loyal companion. Gunner never failed to love ……from his friend a mini horse through several puppies he babysat and his very own cat. I miss you so much my friend….
Gunner was Beauty without Vanity,
Strength without Insolence,
Courage without Ferosity

Our dear Gracie passed in the most beautiful way, at home and surrounded by her favorite stuffed animals and on her bed with her favorite humans and Dr. Kim there. We rescued Gracie and she became our own “Princess” Grace! She loved to hike and swim and bark at the UPS Truck! She had 15 wonderful years and she gave it her all! Thanks you, Dr. Kim, for being there for all of us in our time of need. We sure miss you Gracie, I promise to bark at the UPS Truck and you were the best office assistant anyone could ask for. Rest in peace my sweet pup, we love you.

Dallas, you were such a huge part of our family. We’re feeling a little lost right without you. It’s hard to come home without you there to greet us with such love and happiness. We have so many memories of you playing and showing us how smart you were. You amazed us and brought us joy every single day of your 9 1/2 years. You will live in our hearts forever. RIP, buddy.
It was November 2005 when I first met your Mom. I remember at Christmas that year not knowing what type of gift to buy her since our relationship was just beginning. Then I recalled how much she loved animals and how much she missed her Baby. So I purchased dog food, treats and towels for her to donate to a shelter.
Although we quit seeing each other right after that Christmas I never forgot about her. So a few months later we reconnected and by August 2006 your Mom moved in with me. We had such a big yard and she wanted nothing more than to get a dog to enjoy it with us.
So one Saturday in September we set out to find you . But it was at the PetSmart where you found us. As we approached you jumped up with your front legs hanging over the pen saying”get me outta here”. It worked and a bit later we brought you home. I wasn’t sure how you would do in the truck so I made you ride in the back, your Mom has never let me forget that. Little did I know just how much things were going to change when we got home. I never had a indoor dog but there was no way your Mom was having you stay outside.
Well, my allergies went crazy and I went almost a year without a good nights sleep. Started taking allergy shots in March 2007 and still do to this day. Have driven many miles to get those shots but I wouldn’t change a single one. Life is always changing and ours did too. But what didn’t change was your Mom still loving you. You gave me a reason to come home when I didn’t have one. You loved me when I didn’t probably deserve it.
Today we are with you to say we love you and to let you know how much we will miss you. We will always remember our times together and the happiness you gave us. We hope that your time with us was just as happy and one day we will see each other again.
We love you
Today we said goodbye to Isabela (“Poopy-Kitty”). Found abandoned in a park at 5 weeks old, she turned out to be the best, most non-cat-like cat, ever! She grew up with dogs and enjoyed messing with them (bopping them on the head or butt as they passed by, or not allowing them to pass from room to room). She was scrappy and loved to be outside (she let herself in and out the dog door), defending her property against all cats (and squirrels) who dared to come into her territory.
She had a fun, very long, full life. She was just a few months short of her 20th birthday. We’ll miss her.
Please check out “Samson the Vigilant Rance” Memorial on Facebook. Samson was a beautiful Fawn Great Dane who was the best friend and protector our family ever had. Join us in remember ing his wonderful life.. The day before he passed he insisted on coming into the backyard with my daughter and I; on a broken foot no less. He was a loyal, loving, gentle and protective giant. He will never be forgotten. Thanks to Dr. Kim for helping us compassionately when we needed it the most!
Cadillac Jack Daniels…you will be forever missed. You were the best dog I could have ever asked for. Thank you so much for always being there for me and just wanting to lay on couch and just be next to me. I know your sister Candy and Ally are sad without you. Jack was so friendly and greeted everyone, he was the “sheriff” at the dog park making sure the roughhousing didn’t get out of control! He was my lab who hated water, he won a place in my heart from the moment I pick him up at 6 weeks old…12 years and 1 month later it was his time to go, but he will always hold a special place in our hearts. We love and miss you…love David & Kris. I want to thank Paws at Peace for making this sad time in our lives a bit easier. Dr Simpson you are so very compassionate.
Since the moment you first walked into my life and up those apartment stairs that October eve 2004, you have been the highpoint of my each and every day. You made me look forward to what awaited me after the workday was done. The anticipation of your happy tail wag and lively greeting played in my mind throughout the day. Throughout your life, despite your illness, you greeted me that way until the end. YOU, Jet, were always the sunshine in my life.
You demanded so little, yet gave so much. Looking back, I entrusted you with many heavy and sometimes overwhelming responsibilities. Guard the house, play tracking, herding, agility, obedience, and keeping me happy, day in and day out. You did all that and so much more.
I didn’t intend to fall so deeply, madly in love with you. But it happened and I am lost without your dedicated daily devotion. Our morning routines, our sweet good-byes “see you in a little bit. God watch over you.” I don’t know how long that little bit seemed to you, perhaps long, it was for me. But you were always with me in spirit, I know that, I hope you did too. You still are and always will be. You were the happy beats in my heart.
Your will and strength amazed me until the last breath. I know you would have stayed if you could, you never would leave me. You were determined to walk through life with me and you gave it your all. I felt it, I know it, I believe it.
When we meet again my darling Jet, and I know we will, I hope we can communicate on a level unknown on Earth. But for eternity, just sit close together. Close enough so I can once again take in the rich, earthy smell of your amazing black coat. Look into your gorgeous eyes and tell you how much you mean to me.
Always on my mind, forever in my heart.
All My Love,
Your devoted person
My family and I sincerely thank you from the bottom of our hearts for your kindness, support, and care on Moose’s last day. You made a very difficult time for the family a little easier and did so in a beautiful way. We will never forget you and your professionalism and compassion.
Moose was the best dog we have ever had. He spent most of his days poolside sunbathing and enjoying the company of friends and family. He loved to take dips in his pool and submerge like a hippopota”moose” to cool off in the Texas weather. He had such a great spirit and loved everyone as much as everyone loved him. His way of showing his love was to slime people with his slobbery jaws lol. Moose had the biggest head but also had the biggest heart. We miss the heck out of you big guy!

Thank you so much for your kindness and consideration last week when you helped Fidel pass. It was such a hard, hard day, and I so appreciate you. I also thank you for your follow up call to check on us. I was in West TX interring my mother who passed last month, so I didn’t have a chance to call you back. We are coping OK. I will miss him every day.
Harley Joe (aka MoeJoe, Moe or MoeMoe) was a sweet boy- he happily dressed up for tea parties, let babies and puppies crawl all over him like he was the floor, loved car rides and following me around no matter what. He was gentle and kind, he was the most amazing dog to grace this earth. Heaven will benefit from his presence. He was smart and would do whatever anybody wanted, but most of all he was my best friend, I will miss him always.
Dr. Simpson, thank you so much for your compassionate care and prayers. It made an extremely difficult moment easier and brought me comfort.

You were the best of the best, one dog for all other dogs to be measured to. You slipped away from us and we will never be the same. Thank you for all your love and affection. We have great memories of you and your sidekick Willie who went to the Rainbow Bridge before you. Especially pool time, when you two would race to get the ball, and not just any ball it had to be the tennis ball that squeaked!
Our hearts are broken and our lives forever changed. Be at peace, Oz, you will be forever in our hearts.
