Frannie
2/2/2011 - 7/27/2019We hope during your short life that we treated you with the same love, dignity, and respect as you showed us. Rest in peace lovely, sweet girl and know that you have forever left an imprint of love and beauty in our hearts. We miss you and will never forget you!Mariana PitonMedia, PennsylvaniaJuly 31, 2019
Amber
8/12/2019 - 7/21/2019To my dearest Amber. I miss you greatly. I remember picking you up at the breeder and how quiet you were. I had a choice among many but you stood out from the rest. You have loved us unconditionaly, warm and cuddly, playful you were. You became part of the family and grew up with the kids. I feel a part of me has departed as well, when you left us. I will always love you and deeply miss you. It seems like a insurpassably task to move on, but I know I must release you to be free. Amber , my love , we will never forget you and miss you greatly. Thank you for such a great life you gave us, the love and warm of your presence, the many days of greeting me at the door wagging your tail, excited to see your Daddy. You will forever be in my heart.

Love Dad

Chloe
2/14/2002 - 2/5/2019WE HAD TO PUT OUR BELOVED CHLOE AT AGE 17 TO REST ON SUNDAY FEB. 2019 . IT'S BEEN COMING FOR QUITE A WHILE. SHE'S LOST ABOUT 20 LBS & HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT SKIN/BONE, HAD DOGGIE DEMENTIA, & THE SLOW GROWING CANCER IN HER LIVER WAS GETTING THE BEST OF HER.

WE ARE, OF COURSE, DEVASTATED. WE MISS HER TERRIBLY. WE HAVE BOUTS OF CRYING EACH & EVERY TIME WE SEE SOMETHING THAT REMINDS US OF HER, OR IF SHE CROSSES OUR MIND. THE HOUSE IS SO EMPTY NOW. I REALLY DON'T SEE HOW WE WILL EVER GET OVER THIS.

WE ARE BASKET CASES RIGHT NOW. SOMETIMES MY HUSBAND CAN SPEAK NORMALLY TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CALLING....OTHER TIMES ALL HE DOES IS TEAR UP. SAME HERE. MY HEAD IS THROBBING SO MUCH FROM CRYING. IT WILL TAKE A LONG, LONG TIME, TO GET OVER THIS. 17 YRS. IS A LONG, LONG TIME TO HAVE A LOVING DOG WITHIN YOUR LIFE & IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD. HER SPIRIT IS IN EACH ROOM, IN EACH OF OUR THOUGHTS EACH DAY, & WILL LIVE ALL THE REST OF OUR LIVES IN OUR HEARTS.

Greta
3/25/2015 - 7/9/2019Greta was my soul dog. They say don’t give up on the hard dogs, they will give you something you never know you needed. And that is exactly what describes our Greta.

Greta had an aggressive type of Lymphoma with no cure and a poor prognosis. “Treatment” would have possibly given her a few months but that came with too many risks for me to put my Greta through. Even if I had all the money in the world, I would have still made the same decision. If treatment would have cured her cancer, I would have found a way to pay for it. This was not about the money but about what was BEST for Greta. She hated the vet and being touched by people she didnt know well. She was easily stressed and reactive. She was (and is) our soul dog and only we know what is best for them. And we did what was best for Greta. No one knows what having to make this decision feels like…unless you have gone through it with your own soul dog. I don’t judge people who decide something different…I just know what was best for my baby.

The last 2 weeks have been bitter sweet. Torture for us but wonderful for Greta. We were introduced to Dr. Brad from Lap Of Love and he has been a god send. We put Greta on “hospice” and focused our attention to her quality of life and making every day we had left…the best day for her ever. We made sure to do everything we knew Greta liked to do.

She did so much for us in the 4 years we have had her since rescuing her from ACCT, we owed it to her to let her go with peace and dignity. We started to see subtle signs of Greta slowly starting to decline. Signs that strangers may have not noticed but we knew. I knew. I knew every single thing about Greta, as she knew every single thing about me. We had an unspoken bond her and i....we had an incredible way of knowing when we needed each other the most. And I knew what she needed. And as much as it ripped my heart ….i had to let her go.

Dr. Brad came back to the house so Greta was not stressed going to a vets office. She initially barked at him when he came in (in true Greta fashion!) but we got out her favorite type of rotisserie chicken. And she ate chicken out of my hand as we told her how much we loved her and we thanked her for being our best dog, our very best friend and our loyal protector. I told her that my mom would be waiting for her, along with Daisy. And I told her that no dog will ever replace her but that we would be OK… And just like that…she fell asleep. In peace. Surrounded by chicken and love. In her own home. Surrounded by her people. We couldn’t have asked for a better goodbye. She didn’t know she was sick. She didn’t know she had terminal cancer. She didn’t know an ounce of pain or discomfort or stress. She didn’t know anything else but our love.

But my heart is broken. And my house is quiet. She was my best friend. And when her soul left her body today…a piece of my heart went with her. My whole family is sad but we are so grateful for all the support and condolences. I felt the genuine love from people that I may have never even met but grew to love my baby through social media. So thank you. My world will forever be changed…because of my Greta the Gremlin <3

Lexi
12/3/2006 - 6/18/2019Lexi was the first Bichon Poodle I ever met and I was in love on day one. From when she was a puppy and we played "hide and seek" to when she was a senior and I had to carry her up the stairs, Lexi never failed to bring joy to my life. She will always be part of my life. I do miss you so, my little punkin.Marilyn BullockRose Valley, PennsylvaniaJune 20, 2019
Bailey
1/1/2008 - 5/27/2019Bailey was our first baby...and the sweetest dog in the world. She had a golden coat of fur, but when you looked close she had shades of red in there as well. She anticipated your feelings, and when I was feeling low she was alway there by my side to lay with me and give me comfort. When our kids were born, she became their protector and playmate. She was loved by everyone in our family, and we will miss her forever.Brandy KentBarrington, New JerseyMay 31, 2019
Cooper
5/13/2006 - 5/21/2019It was Edgar Allan Poe who fittingly captured the sentiment "Never to suffer would never to have been blessed" - For 13 years our lives were further blessed by having Cooper in it. And yes, these past days have been characterized by untimely tears, a melancholy haze and profound sense of loss for my best friend – However, to have lived without him would have equated to missing out on life’s greatest reward: The giving and receiving of unconditional love. I loved Cooper the day we got him as a 6-week old puppy and felt a special honor amidst the sorrow in helping to give him his wings 13 years later – May you run, jump, retrieve, swim and wag that joyful tail for all eternityKevin BreenPhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaMay 27, 2019
Marley
4/1/2010 - 5/3/2019Marley, was our joy. She was always happy to see her family and friends and would greet all with wiggles and a wagging tail.
She went with us on every vacation because it would not be the same without her. She was loyal and lived to please us.
She truly was a blessing from God. We loved her with all we had and are so very grateful for Dr. Melinda Glavin who took care
of Marley and gave her the peace she needed.

We truly are very grateful for Lap of Love and we loved Dr. Glavin.

Thank you,
The Gutowski Family

Duchess
10/4/2003 - 2/26/2019Duchess, our sweet little dachshund, brought joy and happiness into our lives every day. Everywhere we went Duchess made friends. We would regularly take her to see a friend in an assisted living facility. He would light up when he saw her and she would cover his face with kisses. The other residents would be all smiles and rush to pet her. The neighborhood children loved her, too! It looked like a train when we took a walk with six or seven children and occasionally an adult following behind her. Duchess was a local celebrity too! She had her picture in the local paper when our minister blessed the animals and in The Atlantic City Press when she wore a custom caterpillar costume in the Smithville Halloween contest. She even won prizes, once when she was dressed as a Tootsie Roll and another time when she was dressed as a Slinky. The impact Duchess had on people was also evident when she passed away. In addition to numerous calls and sympathy cards, friends made a donation to an animal shelter in her memory and the woman’s group at our small country church gave a donation to missions in her name. Duchess was my constant companion and I love her more than words can ever say.Carol WrightSicklerville, New JerseyApril 25, 2019
