Dylan Yannessa Live Forever Memorial Center

We have created this new Live Forever Memorial Center so pet parents can share their Love for a pet that has recently left their earthly existence. We feel it is important to share the joy, laughter, and unconditional Love with which our dogs, cats, and other pets have so uniquely enriched our lives and touched our families, hearts and souls.

Please share your deepest thoughts with all of us as well as a photo or two. Even though we can never replace our little fuzzy, we think it could also help in the healing process, and also help others grieving a loss of their own.

We were inspired to start this new section because of a recent loss of a very special dog – Dylan Yannessa, a 13-1/2 year-old Welsh Terrier who lived in Ft. Lauderdale, FL. Dylan’s Daddy, David is best friends with Ed, our co-Founder.

It was because of Dylan’s loving influence that we created Urban Pooch Canine Life Center!  When visiting David, Dylan showered Ed and Dan with so much Love and so touched their hearts that they decided they just had to welcome a Welsh Terrier into their lives. Very soon after Berwyn became their little guy and so completely changed their lives – the Welsh Terrier experiences inspiring them to create Urban Pooch Canine Life Center! WOOF!

So you see, one little dog can affect so many lives!  But, you already know that. And Ed was there when Dylan arrived in NYC to his Daddies and witnessed him grow into the most special pooch! Even with all our experience with caring and Loving so many pooches at Urban Pooch, it’s still hard to believe they don’t live as long as we do.  We want to offer you a simple way to share your Love and memories so we can help our dogs, cats and other pets Live Forever in our hearts and the hearts of fellow pet parents.

If you have any suggestions on how to improve this experience, please email and guide us.

Please write your thoughts from your heart, add a photo or two and submit. We will post very quickly. We will also be featuring an area with our Urban Pooch facility where everyone can read and/or share.

Thanks for sharing a part of you and your loved one at The Dylan Yannessa Live Forever Menorial Center! WOOF!

Spirit and I found each other when he was 14 months. After 3 trial runs with other moms, I became his forever mom. He was aptly named because, in turn, he became my Spirit lifter, Spirit guide, and my furry soul mate. I always said he came "no assembly required" because he never needed a lick of training. He

Quincy, our sweet little gentleman

September 11th, 2017|

We found Quincy through a fox terrier rescue. He was like a stuffed toy come to life, sweet and gentle and so full of love. He didn't fetch, or play with toys, or learn many tricks, but he was the most quietly affectionate little man who loved being hugged and kissed (and eating). We only had three years with

My best buddy for 5 years and 5 months. You made me so happy every single day even when you did some mischievous things. Rufus, my heart has been broken since you left too soon. I hope you are running with that crazy look in your eyes and hopefully have found some snow and sand along the way. I

I was lucky enough to become this dog's mom when I met his dad. Our vet called him a "lemon" and he had every medical problem in the world and never stopped barking. Despite that, he was the sweetest, kindest and most loyal dog in the world. He loved to cuddle and give kisses and would always make you

Remembering our best girl, our husky, Rohan

A bait dog from a fight dog ring that I (Alex) rescued prior to meeting Jason. We were a packaged deal and she and Jason forged their own special relationship. We had 12.5 years with this sassy lady who always kept us on our toes and taught us the importance of loving with your whole heart.
