Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
1/1/2010 - 12/28/2017Lewis was diagnosed with Osteosarcoma in June 2017, at the age of only 7. We elected to amputate his affected leg to give him some more quality time, but there were serious complications. He nearly bled out, then stabilized. We nearly lost him to severe anemia, but after 2 blood transfusions, he stabilized. After that, he developed an antibiotic-resistant staph infection. Lewis spent weeks in and out of the ICU, and kept fighting on. After he finally healed, they said he probably had 3 months. Well, Thanks to TCVM (Traditional Chinese Veterinary Medicine), he got 7 QUALITY months. We hiked, and swam, and played fetch, and jogged, and cuddled, and stared into each others’ eyes... We siezed every moment of every day., and Lewis was determined to go out on his terms. Just the day before we called Lap of Love, he was playing fetch and hide-and -seek in the snow with his beloved brother and sister! There is a hole in hearts, and always will be. We will love Lewis forever...Holly RendleQuincy, MA, MassachusettsJanuary 9, 2018

10/15/2001 - 12/1/2017Loving an animal as a member of your family is the most precious thing in life. Missing our sweet puppy has been harder than even losing a person in some ways. Our sweet Pepper was always there 24/7. We took care of her everyday and she greeted us with love everytime we came home. Her sweet face, her soft ears, wiggles, cooing noises, barks and play growls are truly missed.Gale MullerSmithtown, NYJanuary 9, 2018
A couple weeks ago our family said goodbye to our sweet Daisy girl. She enjoyed over 14 years of life, and I am so thankful for the memories of all of our adventures together and thankful that she no longer feels any pain or discomfort. I am thankful that God entrusted us with caring for her and loving her all these years, and He is so kind to allow us to experience the love that can be between a dog and her people. Daisy spent most of her life as a country dog. She enjoyed running around outside, chasing squirrels and deer, and taking trips around town (that we didn’t know about until she showed back up at the house wet from a dip in the river). She became a city girl several years ago, and spent her golden years getting lots of belly rubs and treats and car rides from her family. A year ago this month, we noticed the tumor on her right side, and based on what the doctor said, we didn’t expect to have the gift of this whole last year with her. She was a determined fighter and didn’t let it keep her down, even as the arthritis came too. I know Daisy is a dog and not a person (even though sometimes we really thought there was a person in there), but she was a part of our family and so loved. Thankful for my Daisy baby, and I’ll always remember her as the car ride loving, country turned city girl with the softest ears, and with a family that loved her so so much.Amber GranthamRaleigh, North CarolinaJanuary 9, 2018

4/28/2009 - 1/1/2018On January 1, 2018 we lost our beloved Puggle, Lola.

I wrote this shortly after her passing.

Today I lost my sweet Lola. Those who know me, know she was my world. Those who knew Lola, knew she was an incredible dog. She touched the hearts of everyone who met her, but most importantly, she shaped me into the person I am today.
I have loved her since the day I first got her, over 8 years ago. That love strengthened and deepened with each passing day - every morning starting with and every night ending with a hug and kiss. This summer I got my first hint that our time together was finite. I could not stomach the idea of losing her, but each morning and night I hugged her tighter, kissed her deeper. Whereas before I appreciated every day with her, I began to cherish every hour.
We took her to the park more often. We spent more time with family. On her 8th birthday we took her to the beach for the first time and she loved the sand between her paws and the salty breeze on her fur. We took her back many times, squeezing every drop of sunshine from the summer days.
As her condition worsened this fall, I began to relish each minute of my time with her. There were opportunities to spoil her everyday, and I did my best to take advantage of them all. Every occasion was worthy of a photograph. Every trick deserved the best treat. Every dish I cooked would be shared with her.
Winter came and Lola grew sicker. I truly felt our time slipping between my fingers as I rubbed her soft fur and velvety ears. I did all I could for her. Countless vet visits, tests, medications, and treatments. Nothing could mend her body.
Today I learned to value each second with my Lola. I held her in my arms and closed my eyes, doing my best to absorb the sound of her breathing, the softness of her fur, and the salty tears in my mouth.
Lola, I love you so much. I did all I could to let you feel my love, holding nothing back. You were taken from me too soon. There’s a pit in my stomach and a hole in my heart. I miss you and it hurts to be without you.
I put together a video of Lola’s life. From the beginning to the very end. She has brought so much joy and richness to my life, and I wanted to share our memories with all of you.
In the words of Samuel Beckett,
“I can’t go on.
I’ll go on.”

4/15/2007 - 12/29/2017We had always had big female dogs and so when we decided it was time to add another dog into our mix I said “no little boy happy dogs”! Well, my daughter fell in love with this cute little Schnauzer mix which of coarse was a boy but we brought him home anyway. Although my teenage daughter thought he was hers, he quickly became my dog and remained that way until his passing. Harley was the sweetest thing, enjoyed his car rides, his walks and his snuggles on the couch. We had never had a dog in bed with us before because we had always had big dogs but Harley made himself right at home up in the bed . I miss that feeling of him leaning against my feet during the night. This death was so sudden that it has hit me pretty hard and I am missing him terribly. Not seeing his face in the window when I come home, not sharing my toast in the morning and not having him following me around the house. We had this sweet little guy for almost 11 years and I pray he is now freely running around with Cinder, Riley, Shadow and Shelly and that they will all meet me some day at the Rainbow Bridge. This is the first time in 35 years that there has not been at least one dog in the house. I miss you sweet boy!! Rest In Peace !Jody UranCypress, TexasJanuary 8, 2018
12/15/1998 - 1/6/2018Our 19-year-old Oliver left us yesterday. His whole life, he was quite the character - stubbornly himself. He hated to be picked up. He was curious about people - but never wanted them to touch him. Except for us. We had the unique privilege of knowing just how soft his fur was. Especially that spot on his chest. We called it rabbit fur. We called him Snow Kitty, because his white fur was super-white. And because he always slept in the fake snow under the Christmas tree. And we called him Big Chunk, because for most of his life he was massive. The first thing people said upon seeing him was, "Oh my gosh, that's a big cat!" (Dr. Annie said it too, when she came to help us.) He ate like a pig, and peed like a racehorse. He played fetch like a dog, and his favorite beds were usually paper carton lids. He was rarely afraid of anything. But the few times it happened (usually at the vet's office) his response was fight - not flight. Then he was all fangs and nails, and way too strong to hold on to. Our very own Florida Panther. He loved to be brushed, but had to be wrestled to the floor for nail trimmings. And when he wanted attention, he fixed his blue crossed-eyes on you and gave you his croaky squeak that passed for a meow.

Nineteen years went by so fast! It was hard to watch him start to age. To know that his time would be up soon. And no matter how much we tried to prepare ourselves, it didn't change how hard it was to let go and say goodbye. I know it's the same for everyone with fur babies. Lap of Love helped make the process much less stressful. And we take some comfort in the hope that he is with his sister now, on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

11/24/2000 - 1/6/2018Flip has been the joy of our lives for the past 17 years. We are so thankful for all of the years of wonderful and happy memories that we have shared. We'll miss seeing your handsome face when we wake up every day, hearing the sound of your paws clicking on the floor, your happy greetings when I come home each day, the sound of your bark, throwing your toys and all of the kisses you would give. We talked about the sunrise its time for your sunset and we are so heartbroken. You have been the sunshine of my life, my baby, my love. Taking care of you has been my pleasure and a blessing. You will always be remembered as a happy boy who loved his life, his toys and his family. You're loss brings unbearable sadness. Chili is missing you, as well. We will always love you and never let you out of our hearts.Marcella and Ken MorrisSewell, New JerseyJanuary 7, 2018
