This memorial website was created to remember our dearest Momo born in April, 2000 and passed away on January 4, 2009. You will live forever in our memories and hearts.

Momo was born in Hong Kong in 2000. One day, Jos (my sister) and I were wandering in Mong Kok and saw a street vendor selling puppies.  We were watching these puppies for the longest time and Matt (my brother-in-law now) was with us and pulled us away from them.  That's the start of having puppies in our lives.  I couldn't even remember where I learned about miniature schnauzers but I found them smart and cute looking.  In addition, I also found that they are suitable for apartment and house living. I started searching for schnauzer breeders and that's when I first met mo&bon.  We chose bonbon because she was the cutest in the litter, then the breeder told us to have 2 dogs and would give us a 'deal' because the dog would be bored by herself.  Therefore, we picked momo because she was the most active one in the litter, even though she was the last born.

In year 2003, I decided to come back to Canada with them, unfortunately on the day of the great black out.

Victor met Momo for the first time at my house in 2006. They became instant friends, even though Victor was not particularly an animal-lover.

Momo seemed always to be the naughty one of the two, the troublemaker who was always looking for food, going through garbage and very prone to licking people. More than once she had run off on her own and made me go search for her.

Despite her naughtiness, everyone who has met her would agree that she was the cutest and friendliest dog. Even one of our friends who is so afraid of dogs of any size has become friend with her.  We are glad that she is part of our wedding and we will always have the best memories of Momo, and she will always be in our hearts.

"Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there. I do not sleep.
I am a thousand winds that blow.
I am the diamond glints on snow.
I am the sunlight on ripened grain.
I am the gentle autumn rain.

When you awaken in the morning's hush
I am the swift uplifting rush
Of quiet birds in circled flight.
I am the soft stars that shine at night.
Do not stand at my grave and cry;
I am not there.  I did not die.

I'm extremely afraid of dogs so having a dog as a pet has always been a big no-no until I met Momo and Bonbon! Seeing my daughter Ava playing so happily with them almost make me want to go to a breeder right away to get a puppy for her! They are THAT cute! I feel extremely sad about Momo's passing and even our friendship has been a short one, her impact on my life and Ava's has been a big one! Momo, the M.A.D. family will miss you dearly!!!

I remember the first day when I met Momo at Chris' house.  She was very excited and friendly, and tried to lick me many times.

I remember being amazed at how high Momo could jump when she was excited, especially when she saw us bring out the leash.  Her head must have reached our shoulders' height!

I remember being equally amazed at how long Momo could remain standing on her hind legs.  She would do that after we finished dinner and went away with leftover food on our kitchen table.  I wish I had captured that in photos.

I remember the early morning last spring when Chris called me to say that Momo ran away from her house.  I immediately drove there and did a neighbourhood search with Chris and Bonbon together.  On the far opposite end of the street we saw a man working on his driveway.  We explained our situation and described Momo to him.  Soon after he and his son saw Momo and "captured" her and went looking for us.  We must have been walking for more than an hour before they finally found us.  They drove by us and we saw Momo happily sitting on the son's lap on the passenger side, oblivious to the emotional rollercoaster that she had put us through.

Momo will always be the happy-go-lucky dog that we know her to be.  She is probably playing with other dogs in heaven right now not knowing how much she is being missed.

I knew Momo for only two and a half years, and wish that I could know her for longer.  But I know that knowing her for longer would not change how much I love her, because I already love her as much as I can.  I miss her very very much.
