Remembering Our Beloved Stanley “Lord Stanley”
Stanley crossed the rainbow bridge Saturday January 9, 2021 peacefully in the arms of his Dad and Mom. Born August 18, 2008 in Westfield, IN and then adopted by his new parents Steve and Pam where he moved to Fortville, IN.
He leaves behind two fur siblings Bee and Faith, Grandma Josie, Aunts, Uncles and Cousins.
Stanley’s favorite activities were walking, playing Frisbee, exploring on 10 acres, collecting sticks, swimming in his pond which usually meant chasing a ball, ducks, or geese. Smiling and snoozing most always on his back. Did I mention he snores and farts when he sleeps? Stanley loved everything life had to offer (except fireworks, storms, and doctor offices) he hated those things.
Stanley loved car rides, ice cream, birthday parties, sports and getting into trouble on occasion by jumping into the pond or rolling in a mud puddle usually when Mom or Dad had to be somewhere. He had a stubborn side to him which was actually really cute, so it was always hard to get mad at him. He loved getting wet but hated when we tried to dry him off with a towel, would growl the entire time. Stanley loved people and other dogs, especially loved going to daycare on occasion at Barkefellers where he made many friends. It would not be uncommon to see Stanley laying in the middle of the playroom on his back waiting for belly rubs.
More than anything else Stanley loved both his Mom and Dad. Would hang out with Dad watching sports getting Dad to throw the occasional Frisbee or ball during commercial breaks. Stanley loved going down to the pond with his Dad to feed the fish. He loved going with Mom for walks, helping her cook or clean up the kitchen. Loved to stand watch when Mom would work outside. He was good at a lot of things, but he was best at unconditional love. There was not a human he didn’t love to meet and lick. He loved getting treats from UPS and FED EX delivery drivers, bank tellers, dry cleaners, a neighbor friend Judy who he loved to see when out on our walks or wherever we would go.
Stanley suffered from a stroke in early 2020 so began having seizures as a result of it which progressively got worse over the course of the year. He had many good months as the medications helped but fast forwarding to now, he was struggling. Stanley got to celebrate his 12th birthday, Thanksgiving, Christmas and New Year’s before crossing over.
His last days were happy and filled with love and all his favorite things.
We will think of him every time we open a jar of peanut butter. We will think of him every time we celebrate a birthday because he loved birthday parties so much. We will think of him every day as he brought so much joy and laughter to our lives.
He will be forever missed and forever remembered, but he left behind his fierce love, which never wavered. Run free sweet boy.
