Simon
10/1/2001 - 10/18/2019Simon was our boy. He made us a pack. He trained us how to take care of him and we loved every minute of it. He was a quirky little guy - more into himself than others. We strongly believe that he considered us his butlers and we were more than happy to oblige. But in his own Simon way, he was loving and sweet. He gave us a reason to get up in the morning and to come back home in the evening. We are at a loss without him.Wendy CohenLake Wort, FloridaNovember 3, 2019
Princess
2/5/2005 - 11/1/2019Princess was 15 yrs old & over the last year she started to decline in regards to her mobility. Falls & stumbles increased & old arthritic joint became more painful even with twice daily pain meds. We decided it was time to make an end of life plan for her as we didn't want her days to be filled with pain & we knew she would try to hang on for us as long as there was breath in her body. She still had a light in her eyes but her old body was wearing out. Her last week was filled with extra loving & attention, lots of yummy treats! Full packs of Ham, large bowls of icecream, Five Guys Cheeseburger & multiple McDonalds cheeseburgers. On her final day she got a steak, a nice walk with her Daddy, chocolate for the 1st time in her life!! (it's poison to dogs but when you are getting ready to go meet Jesus it doesn't matter!). We fixed her a pound of bacon & gave her some before Dr. Abra arrived & then while the 1st injection was administered she enjoyed finishing off the bacon. Then she layed down, relaxing & went to sleep. She was actually snoring before she went into a deeper sleep. So from bacon to sleep with Mama & Daddy loving on her....it was so peaceful. We are grateful for the Professionalism provided by Laps of Love & the gift we were able to give our Princess through them.Jenny RoofHendersonville, TennesseeNovember 3, 2019

Lily
8/17/2009 - 10/31/2019Thank you Dr. Shannon for making one of the worst days of our lives so comforting. Lily was such a special part of our lives and being able to help her to her final rest in such a peaceful manner made things so much more bearable. Being able to have her sister Lola there was extra comforting for all of us. She will be missed greatly but will remain forever in our hearts. She was truly a special dog. Run free my beautiful Lilybean until we meet again...Lori and Nikki SzelagSpringfield, New JerseyNovember 2, 2019
Loki
7/15/2004 - 10/30/2019Loki left this indelible mark on my heart and his loss has left a wound as equally profound. He is everywhere and nowhere. What was once tangible and solid is now a fading shadow and an empty echo in this house. My heart aches at his absence. I will miss the way he followed me around and found my lap in whatever room I was sitting in. I will miss the way he loved to sleep on the back of my thighs or the way he would lay on my upper back with his paws over my shoulder. I will miss the weight of his front paws on my sternum before he’d lay down on my chest as I would drift off to sleep. I will miss the way he snored and the way he batted at my face when he wanted me to wake up to feed him, or when he batted at my hand when he wanted some of my food. I will miss the way he let me bury my face in his belly or the way he let me hold and carry him around the house kissing him and calling him my baby. I will miss the way he loved to sunbathe, sit on the register during the winter, or crawl under my parents comforter when he was cold. I could go on for many more paragraphs describing all the ways I will miss him. He was special. A once in a lifetime kind of companion. He was my family, my baby boy. He brought me 15 years of so much happiness and joy, filled with memories that I will never forget.

In memory of my sweet, beautiful Loki, you had the most gentle and loving soul. You were the most perfect surprise of my life. Finding you and loving you was meant to be; a gift I will always cherish. Be at peace my little kitty, I love you forever.

Gizmo
12/17/2009 - 10/30/2019You took such good care of our hearts for over nine years! Gizmo, you were my first dog and the best friend I could ever ask for. You always told me when Kailey needed me, came and kissed away tears, joyfully met us at the door even if we just went to get something from the car. You learned tricks, even this year you were so eager to learn shake and stay. Watching you do “zoomies” in the basement is one of my favorite memories. Although you sure likes to catch snowballs too! Oh I hope you are just running wild and free up in heaven. It’s sure lonely without you here. I know some time you’ll send the right companion my way, after some healing. You are such a good boy.Lorin ScottBasehor, KansasNovember 1, 2019
Rufio
1/17/2019 - 10/25/2019Thank you Lap of Love in making Rufio's last trip an easy and pain free journey. Rufio finished his steak snack lying in bed surrounded by love ones. Special thank you for Dr. Racheal who's knowledge, comfort, made it easier for the love one's who attended. Rufio will be missed, however, we all take comfort in knowing he is in a better place and can continue being the intelligent, obedient, and loving PAL to all who knew him. Until we meet again on the other side!!Dwayne samsonEnfield, ConnecticutNovember 1, 2019
Cricket
7/1/1999 - 10/4/2019My parent's moved to Florida back in the late 90's and my Mom adopted Cricket from an elderly couple. She was very spoiled, never really a "sweet" cat that you could hold and carry around - very self sufficient! During the last two years of Cricket's life we could tell she was slowing down, we always brought her to the Vet - they said she was fine, just getting old. The last month of her life my Mom knew something had dramatically changed but could not bring herself to put Cricket down. I had mentioned Lap of Love because I had heard only great things about them and I thought it would be a more humane way of saying goodbye in our home, rather than leaving her at the Vet's office. Right up until Dr. Loren knocked on the door my Mom was having second thoughts and she even wanted me to cancel. But Dr. Loren came in and went right over to Cricket and started to pet her and feel her and told us things that just by feeling Cricket's anatomy she could tell that her small intestines were thickened which explained why she was eating alot but throwing everything up - she was basically starving to death because no nutrients could get into her body. Dr. Loren spent over an hour and a half with us and she put my Mom at ease. My Mom finally knew she was doing the right thing. Dr. Loren was so knowledgeable and caring and she explained every step of the process. When she gave Cricket the first injection just to relax her I actually saw Cricket stretch out and relax for the first time in years. And when it was all over we knew we had done the right thing for our devoted furry friend. I would recommend Lap of Love and Dr. Loren to everyone and anyone who is thinking of putting their loved pet down. It was worth every cent. Thank you Dr. Loren and Thank You Lap of Love.Christine BaroneEast Lake, FloridaNovember 1, 2019
Gixxer
3/27/2005 - 10/30/2019Gixxer was a rescue from Detroit Animal Shelter. Anthony my son brought the dog home and we thought that with a four foot fence she would be kept safe inside the yard. Not to be, she would easily jump the fence and go visit her best friend Marley across the street. Marley (a Black Lab) and Gixxer were best friends. They are now both in doggie heaven and having a blast.Pashko GjonajWashington Township, MichiganNovember 1, 2019
