Sasha (Dog)

Adopted 2009

Tom Pelphrey used to have a three-legged rescue named Sasah that he got in 2009. Sasha passed away in July 2018.

Last week I had to say goodbye to my angel. In 2009 I was living in LA. I had recently lost my Dad and I was struggling, and felt lost. I “rescued” Sasha… and my life changed. I started leaving the house again. Adventures. The world opened back up, and my heart opened back up. In the years since, Sasha has been my near-constant companion, my best bud, my guardian angel. We lived in 6 different cities together, and we visited twice as many more. We drove cross country, did road trips, and there was ALOT of swimming involved. 14 months ago she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma, and we amputated her leg. She (like all dogs) couldn’t give a fuck less. And my experience of our bond deepened to a level that I wouldn’t have imagined possible. There were moments in the last year that will last forever. Recently the cancer metastasized, and she began to struggle. I put her down before she had to suffer. I held that big, soft, beautiful head in my hands and told her I love her over and over again. (I was calm and gently assertive Caesar). Once she was gone I lost my shit. I was lucky… my friends surrounded me with empathy and generosity. My brother offered to travel across the country. My girlfriend dove into the deep end with me and held my hand, never blinking. We ALL know loss. It’s really fucking hard… and the questions and feelings that arise can feel crushing. But I will say this:: the sadness I feel now doesn’t hold a fucking candle to the love and gratitude I feel for the last 9+ years. Not even fucking close. I have a skittish relationship to social media… I’m wary of it and self-conscious using it… but I’ve always love sharing pictures of Sasha. My love for her always felt like a contribution worth making… so I felt compelled to share this. If you’re an animal lover, and I know you are legion, you already understand everything I’m saying. If you’re still reading this at all… thank you for letting me share. The world seems so crazy right now… let’s always try and remember that we share so much more than what separates us. Today I’m grateful for all the Love in my life, in all of it’s many forms. #sashafierce

King (Dog)

Breed: Chihuahua | Adopted Oct 2022

Kaley Cuoco and Tom Pelphrey adopted their first rescue as a couple in October 2022 and named him King. King was a senior Chihuahua at 10 years old, and sadly passed away in February 2024. Both Cuoco and Pelphrey posted lengthy heartfelt tributes to King.

here are no words to describe our dearest little Kingy. He was the first dog @tommypelphrey and I rescued together and honestly the most special.
I saw him online shaking in a shelter in Atlanta while I was away in Germany , and asked the shelter to hold him because we just had to have him. A month later we were in Atlanta for Tom’s work, and we spent an entire day driving hours to go pick up King. It was ♥️! We did not have him nearly long enough. What started as a 6 pound , skinny , wouldn’t drink water , fur less, scared dog, turned into a chubby , hilarious , side plopping, eye kissing part of our family. The hardest part about adopting seniors with medical issues, is we truly don’t know how long we have. All I know is Kingy gave us the most joy over the last year in a half and we could not love him more. To everyone that helped with Kingy’s journey along the way, thank you. I urge you to rescue your next best friend He has left his paw print on our family’s hearts forever
