Phantom
5/29/2003 - 7/14/2017Phantom was the best dog you could have ever ask for . He was funny sweet loving and kind. Fourteen years will never be enough to spend with this wonderful dog. Even in the end he tried so hard for us everyday to with us . I was on vacation they last week before he passed and he was such a good boy. I made him eggs and toast everyday for breakfast and then he followed me outside and walked around all day which he hasn't done for a long time. Phantom can never be replaced in my heart and when he passed he took a piece of my with him that day. T miss him more than words can say Phantom I love you so much !!!Please run free with Nana till I see you again!Jacqueline BakerNiagara Falls, NYJuly 15, 2017
Winston
6/21/2003 - 7/14/2017We said goodbye to our loyal companion of 14 years yesterday. So very hard to see his health declining over the last few years. He was the best!! We loved him so much and will miss him dearly.Jennifer PryorLexington, S. CarolinaJuly 15, 2017
Homer
It was with the heaviest of hearts that we bid our final farewell to our dearest furry family member Homer. He was a loyal protector, friend, and companion. Loved by all that knew him.
A special thank you to Lap of Love for bringing him peace, and to Dr. Mike of Maple Veterinary for years of compassionate care.
Rest in peace dearest buddy, rest in peace. You will be sorely missed.

Sammy
11/1/2003 - 6/26/2017I am missing my cherished, sweet, beloved companion, "Sammy", who was the most personable, charming, intelligent, loving, companionable, affectionate, dignified, elegant, inquisitive, delightful little fur buddy I ever had. We shared life together for nearly 14 years. He had diabetes and died on 6/26/17 with the help of Dr. Julie from Lap of Love who was incredibly supportive and kind in helping with this transition and loss. She is so compassionate and sensitive that she made the most difficult task bearable, to part with my adorable Siamese boy. It was incomprehensible to me to ponder life without him but I am glad he is no longer suffering and that he is free from pain and physical illness. He was a true soul mate and I am hoping and expecting to see his spirit again one day when I go to the other side.Leslie EhrinCollegeville, PennsylvaniaJuly 15, 2017
Whitney
3/15/2002 - 7/10/2017I said goodbye to my sweet little Whitney this past Monday. She was by my side for the past 15 years. She was so sweet and loving. I am heartbroken without her.Airron DavisOviedo, FloridaJuly 14, 2017
Yukon
9/27/2001 - 7/13/2017Yukon lived a great 15 years. Unfortunately at the end he wasn't the dog he wanted to be. We will always think of you when you were vibrant and happy and will miss you very much. You were a good boy and were always there for us. This is one of the hardest we have ever done, but we know you are in a better place and you can do everything that your heart desires.Robert OstrumChapel hill, North CarolinaJuly 14, 2017
Boomer
12/25/2004 - 6/29/2017Boomer you are forever our sweet beloved “Cattle-Lab!” We miss you so often throughout each day. We miss seeing you as we wake, taking our morning walks, at dinner, evenings & the many, many hugs & kisses we gave you. It was Kismet the day we met you!! Mike found you on the Paw Prints website & requested to see you at the Garner Petsmart adoption day. After many weeks, we were about to give up our search, & I remember that day in January so well. I got down on my knees & asked you if you liked me. You answered by putting your paws on my shoulder & giving me a kiss.
You were such a loving, happy dog, greeting everyone we encountered with your soft sweet whimper. It was your way of saying, “Hi, I’m Boomer, welcome to my world!” More people in our neighborhood know you more than they know Mike or me. Your affectionate personality is why you have so many friends, (two & four legged)! Maggie, Toby, Cooper, Tiger, Stanley, Daisy, Alice, Chas, Watson, Jessie, Jet, Cinnamon, Bear & Mia to name a few. With a quick sharp bark you calmed Cooper when he was anxious, & with a short yelp you stopped Jet from running away from his mom. If Maggie saw you, she would make her mom & dad stop walking so that she could say hello. You loved Ms. Kingsley & if we walked by her house, you would stop & stare at it, wanting her to come outside, which she was happy to oblige! Ms. Janet who was afraid of dogs, was never afraid of you & looked forward to petting you. You were thrilled to see Ms. Mei, Mr. Chin & Mr. Kelly, who would periodically come to check on you when Mike & I were away for a few hours. You enjoyed entertaining guests, showing off how you could throw your rope in the air & catch it. Mr. Miles & Ms. Kitty were frequent visitors, & you were Mr. Miles’ “Roly Poly!”
You were such a good boy. Where ever we took you, you were at home & could be trusted. We loved taking you with us to the beach & on family visits to PA & MD. You liked to shop at the many stores where you were allowed. Your smile & face would light up at the sight of the beach; running near the waves, through the tide pools & chasing the birds was so much fun! You were so happy on your daily walks, getting love from the kids at the bus stops. You especially enjoyed the walks at the many local parks & greenways. If not for you we would not have seen so many beautiful areas. We will always remember your happy little trot with your tail up.
You also loved your at home time with us. You would curl up on the couch with me or lay beside Mike during evening tv time. You never begged at the table & would wait patiently for Mike to finish his plate & put his leftovers in your bowl. Even if we went to a restaurant, Mike would always bring something for you. At bed time, you had the cutest little wiggle going up the steps. You took your half of the bed out of the middle & we loved sharing it with you. If someone slept in late some mornings, you would join them in bed until they were ready to rise. Your grandma looked forward to letting you curl up & get back in bed.
You were so good at checkups, taking your shots & letting Dr. Riddle do what she needed to do. We were so fortunate to have found her. Her knowledge, caring and extra training on nutrition, vitamins and herbs made all the difference in helping you stay healthy, especially when we found out you had nasal cancer. It was a tough treatment program for you at NC State but you persevered & we were blessed with some terrific Dr.’s. The radiation shrank the tumor down to nothing for over a year, & thanks to Dr. Riddle, Melanie’s massages & your strong spirit, you were able to champion on for nearly two more years in spite of the tumor’s return in the recent months. You made a lasting impression with so many people who have sent us cards & remembrances for you. Boomer you are such a treasure to us. When God made you, he threw away the mold. We think of you each day and will always remember the love you gave us.

Tallulah
8/10/2017 - 7/9/2017Our Little Girl, Tallulah, went to be a puppy again in heaven. We said goodbye to her this past Sunday, July 9th. It has been the hardest thing my wife (Erin) and I have had to face together. Tallulah made the decision for us as she gave us strength on our last day together.
It was a good day, full of love, hugs, kisses, and saying goodbye. The weather was beautiful, so we stayed outside all day on blankets. She wanted to be close to us.
We miss out Little Girl.....but we also feel she is still here with us. She is now running and playing again.....and it warms our hearts to know this.
Goodbye our sweet love, Tallulah!!!!

Cricket
1/22/2003 - 7/9/2017Our dear sweet Cricket "Crickey", "Cricket Puppy", "Puppy", left this Earth peacefully and surrounded by his loving human parents and 3 human little brothers. He was such a good dog who loved us with everything within him. He was loyal until the end as he laid in each of our laps and told us all goodbye on the day that we knew it was time for him to let go. He loved to play tug of war, run around like crazy after his bath, and cuddle up with mommy and daddy after a long day. He stayed by mommy's side every time Daddy deployed and he was such a good best friend. He loved bacon and always waited his turn when it was cooked. We will never find a more loving and loyal companion than our precious Cricket. We miss him so much that the pain is almost unbearable, but we trust that we serve a good God who will not waste our pain, but use it to glorify His name. We thank God every day that he chose to create Cricket and send him to our family to love and cherish for 14 years.Leah SoxLexington, S. CarolinaJuly 12, 2017
