He Brought Joy To All He Met

We Miss Him!


February 5, 2006 - March 31, 2018




Was that a "Rabbit" I just saw? Please, please, I am a very good dog.
Okay, I'll sit down here and let you pet me. Warren wants you to think it was my idea to get up on this bench and pose with this daylily. Um, it does smell good.
Everyone's paying attention to the garden talk and not me. I think I'll head across the field to Brady's house. It's dull around here and maybe there is something fun happening there.
They think this big pot can hold me! The poster boy for spring in the Providence Journal. What's a samba?
I do love bath time. Wasn't I the most adorable baby?


Some Tributes
We are thankful to all of the people who sent cards, letters, e-mails and even made phone calls to express support. We thank you for thinking of us and Fletcher too. So many of you understand the enormity of our loss, because you have been in the same place and know how hard it is to say goodbye to a beloved pet. We were also pleased that so many people had kind words to say about Fletcher. We know that everyone thinks their own pet is special and unique. Of course, we thought the same about Fletcher. We appreciate your tributes to his spirit. It helps.
I'm so sorry to hear about Fletcher. He was such a good and loyal boy! Oh that is a lovely tribute on your web page - so cute as a puppy, and later a photogenic and handsome guy! I hope you both can take some comfort in knowing that you both gave him such a wonderful and free life, spending most of his time out of doors in beautiful surroundings and close to nature. I can't imagine a better life for any dog.  The loss of a pet is the loss of a beloved family member. I hope he rests in peace and is now free from pain.   (Gale H., Fletcher's next door neighbor for 12 years)
He was a great dog. At least he's at peace now, for what comfort it's worth. And if it's true that all dogs go to heaven (I certainly like to think it is), I'm sure he's having a great romp up there and feeling like a puppy again. (Ben P., former employee, who spent three summer's working while Fletcher supervised.)
Fletcher was one of a kind and a light to all who met him. I will miss his company and his joyful greetings. He will never be forgotten (Casey D. - nursery employee and the one who looked after him whenever we were away.)
I'm so sorry. We will miss him. (Bruce C. - Brady's dad, the golden retriever next door at the nursery)
What a good guy he was - he just had his very own spirit! And you did every single thing you could to keep him happy until the end.  (Diane S. - friend)
Fletcher was like no other dog. Every time I'd drive up this gentle lord of the manor greeted and welcomed me and then off he'd go to take care of something else. The wonderful photos you put together with such sweet captions made me happy and sad at the same time. The loss of your constant companion is heart-breaking. (Virginia S. - Nursery customer and friend)
I’m so sorry to hear that Fletcher has passed. I loved stopping to pet him before going out into the fields to look around.  He will be missed!
Ed C. (Nursery customer)
Right from the get go he was a lovable ball of energy - and now to the last a fine, loyal friend to you. My heart is with you. (Joann V - friend)
I am beyond sorry for your loss of one of the lost lovely dogs I've ever had the pleasure of meeting. (Michelle N. - friend)
Fletcher was an incredible dog, beloved by everyone & so handsome! (Deborah and Wes, friends)
The tribute on your webpage was endearing - we were able to relate to it in so many wasys... I have often thought that dog Heaven must be simply over - the - top. I could not imagine a place I'd rather call my own destiny. (Kevin and Michael - friends)
So sorry to hear about Fletcher. We were away so just heard last night. I'm sure he's in doggie heaven. We'll miss him ( Jennifer and Dave - nursery neighbors)
I am so very sorry to hear of the death of your darling Fletcher. I would feel a bump and there he would be at my back. He always looked so handsome whether in his wooly coat days outfit or his stylish summer cut. What a lovely dog. I will miss him very much and I can only begin to imagine how much you miss him all the time. Our dear animals are so much a part of our lives aren't they? (Ann M. - nursery customer)
