Celebration of Life for Tahlia Boyd

Tahlia Claire BoydTahlia, Hailey & Lucky

Tahlia’s smile lit up the room and her eyes danced with love and life, even though the rest of her body could not. Her smile will be seared in my heart forever as I know it will for many of us at Peyton’s Ranch. It is with a heavy heart that we say goodbye to our sweet friend, but you are free now sweet girl…  Spread your wings and fly!


With so much love,

~ Elizabeth & the Peyton’s Ranch family


From Tahlia’s Family:

A celebration of life for Tahlia Claire Boyd will be held on November 15, 2014 at 1:00 p.m. at Northshore Baptist Church in Kirkland. Tahlia courageously battled a brain stem tumor for nearly three years. She passed away November 3rd, 2014, joining many family members and beloved animals in heaven.

Family and friends will miss Tahlia’s mischievous smile, her love of animals, and contagious joy for life that would brighten any room. Tahlia’s scope of influence on others far exceeded her 9 1⁄2 years.

Tahlia is survived by her parents Eric and Rachelle Boyd, and five siblings: half-brother Caleb Waller, older sister Hailey, younger brothers Malachi and Silas, and baby sister Karis. Her extended family includes paternal grandparents Tom and Rita Boyd, maternal grandparents Mike and Carol Cameron, her Aunts Alicia and Kelley and their husbands, John and Roko.

Her parents and family wish to thank all those in the community who helped Tahlia throughout her care, including the staff at Seattle Children’s Hospital, the homecare nurses at Total Care, Carousel Hospice and Homecare, Children’s Country Home, Lt. “Sandman,” Fire Station 45, and Bothell EMS. They appreciate the support given by community organizations such as Community

Bible Study (CBS), Classical Conversations (CC), Refuge Church, Maple Park Church, Make-A-Wish of Washington and Alaska, Peyton’s Ranch and Comfort Critters, LMG Concerts, the Redmond Police Department, and Chief for a Day. A special thanks to Antioch Bible Church and Northshore Baptist for providing the memorial service, and all the love and support from family and friends.

For dry foods, I would suggest Innova Evo, Wellness Core or Nature’s Variety Instincts. They are grenilass which means they’ll have less carbs and don’t have any of the allergens found in most other dry foods (corn, wheat or soy).For canned foods, there are tons of good ones out there. One very good one is Nature’s Variety Instincts. This is what I feed. It’s $1.79 per can. I think it’s one of the highest priced canned foods out there. Which DOESN’T mean it’s the best, but it is very good and it has worked very very well for my problem child.See the What to feed link for other suggestions. This is a very handy link you can go to the sites and use the store locators to find where the food is sold in your area.I’m also linking you to my blog so you can learn more about identifying other good foods.EDIT: I think kanan meant to say that it’s good you’re switching to CANNED.
