Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Tippy Tail
5/13/2019Six days ago I said good bye to my best friend Tippy Tail. Letting her go was the most difficult thing I have ever had to do in my 53 years. My mind knows it was the right thing to do however my heart is broken in a million pieces. I know she is with God and now able to run and play with my other dogs in heaven.

She will be missed beyond measure and I am so grateful that God thought enough of me to share her for 12 years.

Mia
6/7/2006 - 5/16/2019Mia was a faithful companion throughout her life. We loved her with all of our hearts and she loved us back. From day one, she made a place in our hearts. She loved our family unconditionally and taught us to do the same. She was queen of the house. and never knew a stranger. She was our Golden Retriever with a Golden heart. Our home seems empty without her but we know that she is watching over us and hoping that we offer another dog a loving home. She was always good at sharing and we will never forget our first family pet. For ever in our hearts my furry friend. We love you!John HockinLargo, FloridaMay 19, 2019

She loved the beach and was smart while all the sunbathers were laying out she could find shade. She loved to pick up her football and run around the couch when the New Orleans Saints made a touchdown she loved car rides , milk bone, green beans and any kind of treat at 8:30 pm . She was my shadow, my sidekick my protector , she was always next to me or following me around the house or yard or sleeping next to me . But most of all my best friend she loved her family and never wanted to let us know how bad she was feeling at the end . She said her good bye with her family by her side . Rest In Peace Daisy Mae run free until we see you again.

Hobbes Bowman-cannell
10/31/1997 - 5/18/2019Hobbes was an incredible cat. Her spirit was indomitable, and her body gave our before she did. She held on despite having hypertension, anemia, FIV, and chronic kidney disease. She also endured a stroke in November 2018, where she temporarily lost the use of her back legs.

Nevertheless, she pushed on, dragging herself to the food dish, litter box, and so on, demonstrating a fierce will to live until she was once again walking and climbing. This was all while she was more than 20 years old!

We were gifted with her presence for another half a year until her heart gave out.

She was gentle with children, affectionate with her two parents, and very chatty and opinionated in her best days. She will be missed, remembered, but never replaced.

Tigger
5/8/2003My sweet Tigger... what can I say about my best friend of 17 years. We knew you were meant for us when we adopted you. In the kennel there were about 15 kitties meowing for attention and pawing at us through the cage. But you were curled up in the food bowl so calm. You lifted your head up and looked at us then returned to sleep. We knew you had a mellow personality and took you home. You never hissed, but or acted anything other than loving. Even though raising two children, you were so loving and patient with them. You "rescued" me from many spiders and gifted me too many lizards to count. You would greet me every morning and enjoyed my petting while I enjoyed my coffee. You snuggled with me durning cold winters and enjoyed the rays of sunshine during our Florida summers. You enjoyed cheese as much as me and were my snuggle bug when I had hard times. You licked my hands when I cried for the deaths of my grandparents but I feel loss now. Who will comfort my tears for you? Thank you Dr. Annie for comforting me through this process. I will be forever grateful for your comforting touch and respectful manner you handled my sweet boy's last moments.
Good bye my Tiggy. Mommy loves you.

Buddy
11/17/2005 - 4/18/2019I write this on the one month anniversary of Buddy's passing. I miss him like it was just yesterday. My life was forever changed when he came into my life and it'll never be the same without him.
Buddy was as loving as any Jack Russell could be but he was a great boy and brought a ton of life into the room. He was my shadow, my protector and my laughter. He also could be a "terror" but I wouldn't have it any other way!
Buddy - I know you're without discomfort and back to your youthful self and for that I'm happy. Tell everybody I said hello and I love them. I loved you with all my heart and I can't wait to see you again one day. Thank you for picking me and letting me be your mommy. I'll cherish every memory from our 14 years together. Come visit me any time, I'll be waiting...

Milo Bovine Vanella
11/05/2002 - 5/05/2019On Sunday, May 5, 2019, we had to say goodbye to one of our dearest family members – Milo Bovine Vanella. I adopted Milo from the Norfolk SPCA in February, 2003. He was a 10-week-old, Lab/Dalmatian mix with silky jet black fur and white markings covering the front of his chest and paws. He was a loving, kind and gentle soul. And at the ripe old age of 16 ½ years, he was suffering from doggy Alzheimer’s and Degenerative Myelopathy. My husband and I knew it was time to make one of the toughest decisions we’ve ever had to make – lay him down.

After much research, we decided to contact Lap of Love for his hospice euthanasia. We wanted to have it at home because we couldn't bear the thought of his passing being done in an unfamiliar place, surrounded by strangers. Dr. Elyse Persico came to our home that morning to help us lay Milo to rest. In preparation for her arrival, our baby experienced all of his normal Sunday morning routines – breakfast, fresh linens put on his bed, and a delicious (homemade) puppucchino. Milo took to Dr. Elyse immediately and even kissed her - He did not kiss strangers. It was as if he knew she was there to help him and was thanking her for her assistance and kindness. As my husband and I gently stroked his shoulders and head, Dr. Elyse administered the medication. Milo relaxed onto his bed, and with his head resting comfortably on his pillow, he took two deep breaths and went "home."

I cannot express enough the appreciation and gratitude my husband and I have for Dr. Elyse and Lap of Love. The kindness, patience, and genuine love given to Milo, (and us) by Dr. Elyse made a heart-wrenching experience a little less painful to bear. We had his remains cremated, and a beautiful portrait made. They are both positioned on the wall his bed used to rest against. Seeing his beautiful face makes me feel as if he is still with us. Milo Bovine Vanella, 2002-2019, you will always be loved and missed.

Love of my life! Confused everyone because they thought you were a golden retriever. Little did they know, you were a Great Pyrenees and a Rottweiler. Patient yet restless, sweet but fierce.Kristen LobsteinSalem, OregonMay 18, 2019
Bernie Brillo
1/7/2013 - 5/12/2019Bernie Brillo was known to have no interest in toys, preferring any form of paper bags and cardboard as his entertainment. His old soul garnered intelligence in an unassuming and reserved manner, pondering everything before deciding on anything. He made friends with everyone who met him and there were many who contributed to his short life, with a team effort involved in his out-of-state rescue, to his heartworm treatment on arriving home by his phenomenal vet, Dr. Wagner. Bernie was between 1-3 when we met, and shared with me some of the best and definitely the most challenging years of my life in our six years together. He enjoyed an avid proclivity to secretly remove, hide and bury objects of his intrigue: rags, socks, towels, even blankets, and sometimes an occasional bone. His Aunt Ellen was known for surprising Bernie with interesting treats, gifted beds, and of course love and accompanied him (and me) on each one of Bernie's visits after his diagnosis, surgery through gifted Dr. Taylor, and subsequent compassionate oncologist, Dr. Burr. Although he had no words, his relationships and caring were realized on an intrinsic level.Geraldine SandmanHenderson, NevadaMay 18, 2019
