Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Elle
9/27/2005 - 10/1/2019I went to purchase a puppy and the owner set all the puppies loose. They were rolling and playing it was very difficult to choose. Then I felt this lick on my arm as I was crouched down viewing puppies. Here was the smallest puppy of the litter sitting quietly looking up at me as she licked my arm. I thought she a runt and will have health issues so I chose another puppy. As the nights came all I thought of was the runt. I heard her say my name is Elle'. I called and she was still there but they said she wold cost $100 more. I didn't care. Elle' and I were bonded. She chose me and we were inseparable. Her sister was bonded with my husband. It was perfect. The girls were so close all through the years and were also inseparable. We all miss her still.Susan SutherlandSacramento, CaliforniaMay 30, 2020
Teent-z
2/11/2005Teent-z was loved by everyone who met her. She would always meet you at the door barking at you with her lil nub just wagging, and chased after you when she heard your krys, cause she didnt want you to go. She was always by my side when I was home, she would follow me to do laundry, in the kitchen for dishes, or cooking dinner, or even to the bathroom. She would get up in the middle of the night to check on everyone in the house by sniffing by their bedroom doors to make sure all was ok. Teent-z never asked for much just to have a sample of what you were eating and for your loving hand to not stop petting her.. She would be there if you were upset and had this calmingness to her as she would lick your tears away. She loved to share in our joy and would jump up and down, all the time when she was happy/excited.katrina cymbalistyconcord, North CarolinaMay 29, 2020
Meatloaf
10/4/2006 - 5/28/2020Almost 14 years was not enough time with you. It would take 14 More years to mention how much you meant to us, and the countless hearts you touched, and people you made smile .

Your loss is still fresh in our hearts and there’s a hollowness in our life that’s irreplaceable. If you’re looking down on us know we’ll be better eventually. We’ll smile again and our feelings of missing you will be replaced with happy memories and stories we can tell for hours until people are sick of hearing it. We owe it to you For the happiness you brought into our lives . Our hope is that you can recant stories to the other great pets you’ve met, how crazy your owners were how much they meant to you and how much you miss them.

Sammi
5/10/2006 - 5/28/2020Sammi, there is a place in my heart where you will always live. You took such good care of me. You always knew what I needed to do and you nagged me until I did it. You were the boss and you were so very brave. You came into my life right when I needed you. Letting you go was so difficult.
I remember how you would lay on the floor (or the sofa) with your two front paws crossed. You looked so regal, you earned the nickname "princess." You looked after your fur sister Rudy. You knew she was shy, so you showed her how to be brave. You would do all the barking at strangers and Rudy would hide behind you. But, Rudy is braver now, she barks at night like you used to do and walks up to the front door like you showed her to do. You loved to gnaw on those old cow bones; so did Rudy and you and she would very politely steal from each other. I will miss the pile of bones and toys that regularly traded places. You loved to ride in the car and go on spa days with Rudy. I will miss your excited face when the door of the car opened. I know you thought you could talk and I swear I thought I knew exactly what your were saying.
When my mother died, you took care to stay close, When Gary passed away you were there again to comfort me. Now you are gone and Rudy comforts me, but she misses you too and I comfort her as well. I remember you Sammi, I will always remember you. You made my life better for having you in it.

Billie
6/4/2003 - 5/26/2020Having you near me for so long, your absence is so loud. You were my first baby, and I will miss all of our little secret queues we had between us. My sweet, sweet baby. My heart is totally broken without you.Bridgette GigiOrlando, FloridaMay 29, 2020
Jakey
11/25/2007 - 5/27/2020Jake was the sweetest dog in the world. Weighing at 95 pounds, some people were afraid of him just because of his size. But little would they know that he was mostly the one who was afraid. He would always hide in closets during thunderstorms and peek his head out from my pants. He was a complete sweetheart, full of trust and love. A perfect companion. A perfect best friend. He knew whenever I was sad. He would keep me company in my room and we’d watch TV and movies together until we fell asleep. His favorite food ever had to be American cheese. Before he was immobile, he loved going for walks and sniffing all of the trees. He loved car rides and feeling the wind on his face. He was a very gentle dog. Even when feeding him, he would always take a treat from you with caution and be incredibly gentle. He was very, very handsome and also very hairy. His hair would get everywhere every day. But I never minded.Ariana DimouCommack, New YorkMay 29, 2020
Bee
12/31/2009 - 5/29/2020You were there with all of us through our various experiences in life. Always there for us to cheer us up when we felt our lowest. You were the reminder every morning that life had good in it when it seamed so bleak and evil. A lover to all members of family even if the family itself hated each other. I can't thank you enough for it and I really really wish I could pet you so much more like you deserved. You were unique from your white toes to your appearance, even including your awesome personality. Till we see each other again my faithful companion!!Jarret RodriguezChicago, IllinoisMay 29, 2020

5/1/2004 - 5/28/2020Three days to remember

The first day is a day, blessed with happiness, when you bring home your young new friend. Perhaps in a fleeting moment, you may have just chosen that silly looking mutt in a shelter- simply because something in its eyes reached your heart. But when you bring that chosen pet home, and watch it explore, and claim its special place in your hall or front room -- and when you feel it brush against you for the first time -- it instills a feeling of pure love you will carry with you through the many years to come.

The second day will occur eight or nine or ten years later. It will be a day like any other. Routine and unexpected. But, for a surprising instant, you will look at your longtime friend and see age where you once saw youth. You will see slow deliberate steps where you once saw energy. And you will see sleep when you once saw activity. So you will begin to adjust your friend's diet -- and you may add a pill or two to his food. And you may feel a growing fear deep within yourself, which bodes of a coming emptiness. And you will feel this uneasy feeling, on and off, until the third day finally arrives.

And on this day -- if your friend and whatever higher being you believe in have not decided for you, then you will be faced with making a decision of your own -- on behalf of your lifelong friend, and with the guidance of your own deepest Spirit. But whichever way your friend eventually leaves you -- you will feel as alone as a single star in the dark night. If you are wise, you will let the tears flow as freely and as often as they must. And if you are typical, you will find that not many in your circle of family or friends will be able to understand your grief, or comfort you. So if you are true to the love of the pet you cherished through the many joy-filled years, you may find that a soul -- a bit smaller in size than your own -- seems to walk with you, at times, during the lonely days to come.

And at moments when you least expect anything out of the ordinary to happen, you may feel something brush against your leg -- very, very lightly.

And looking down at the place where your Dear, perhaps Dearest friend used to lie -- you will remember those three significant days. The memory will most likely to be painful, and leave an ache in your heart.

As time passes the ache will come and go as if it has a life of its own. You will both reject it and embrace it, and it may confuse you. If you reject it, it will depress you. If you embrace it, it will deepen you. Either way, it will still be an ache.

But there will be, there must be, a fourth day when -- along with the memory of your pet -- and piercing through the heaviness in your heart -- there will come a realization that belongs only to you. It will be as unique and strong as our relationship with each animal we have loved, and lost. This realization takes the form of a Living Love -- like they scent of a rose that remains after the petals have wilted, this Love will remain and grow -- and be there for us to remember. It is a love we have earned. It is the legacy our pets leave us when they go. And it is a gift we may keep with us as long as we live. It is a Love which is ours alone. And until we ourselves leave, perhaps to join our Beloved Pets -- it is a Love we will always possess.

Leonard Lewis ((lenny)
2/6/2007 - 5/28/2020My beaitiful Lenny went to meet up with his sister, May, yesterday and I think they are running around playing and boxing each other like they did when they were puppies together. Lenny had the sweetest nature and was the cutest puppy ever. He grew into a handsome boy who only ever wanted to say hi to everyone and wag his butt. Even friends who were afraid of dogs loved him and felt comfortable around him. He lived other dogs, cats, fish....even a bearded dragon we got a few years ago. Everyone loved our sweet Lenny. He has been lonely since his sister passed 2 years ago but also was a little grumpy so a puppy would not have worked for him. We lived him so...Betsy ColinBreinigsville, PA, PennsylvaniaMay 29, 2020
Andrew
8/14/2002 - 5/17/2020Our son Andrew was our sweet boy. He gave more unconditional love ❤️ every day of his life. Yes, Andrew was 18 years with us. A long beautiful life with us. He loved car rides, playing with his sister Zoey which is still alive with us. Loved playing with his toy it was always funny when he didn’t want to share. Andrew loved his dad but was a mamas boy. He always knew when I was sick, moody and depressed. He was always on my lap and by my side. When the time came we had to make that decision it was difficult so we decided to use the service from Lap Of Love. Our doctor Abra was awesome. She was very professional but respectful what you were going thru. She told us step by step making us feel more comfortable during the process. Our experience with Dr. Abra was very peaceful for Andrew and us. I would recommend her to anyone.Cindy SharpNashville, TennesseeMay 29, 2020
