Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
We had to send our beloved Duke to rainbow bridge on April 13th 2012. We were so emotional having to deal with letting him go. We did a search on the web and found an angel called Dani with Lap Of Love.

I told her that Duke was in so much pain and I couldn't move him. She came to our home within an hour and made an otherwise horrible event into something beautiful for our last moments together with Duke.

We had Dukes rear leg amputated 10 months ago and he did well for awhile, but the last few months for him were real rough. I miss him dearly everyday, I look for him at every turn. Till we meet again my boy....Love You Always

Dickens was our "big girl." Half Maine Coon she was a BIG kitty. When she wanted to snuggle you were going to snuggle NOW, no options. And no matter what we were doing she always got her way. Totally curious about everything and a major "sock monster" Dickens was the ultimate cat. We lost her far too soon to FIP but we will love her forever.

Many thanks to Dr. David Rousseau for all he did to make our girl's passing as easy as possible. We will forever be grateful.

On October 21, 2011 at 1:25 PM, we said goodbye to Cade, our "wonder dog" as his vet called him. He was the sweetest little guy who loved his "mommy" so much. In failing health since April 4, 2010, Dr. McVety, a pet hospital vet at the time, encouraged me to take Cade home and keep trying to get him better. She did this in spite of other vets in the office telling me to "put him down". He lived nearly 19 more months; very happy and frisky with a never-ending appetite. He began to take a turn for the worse after another upper respiratory infection, which we had all become, accustomed...antibiotics, vaporizer, etc. I knew when he no longer was interested in eating and his belly started to swell that it was time to give him what he most deserved...peace and comfort.
Dr. Dani arrived and was so compassionate and gentle. He was given the sedative and layed himself on his left side and he seemed so comfortable. He left us so peacefully and quietly. The pain that we are still feeling is hard but it must have been so much harder for him to be feeling so poorly. I will NEVER forget him nor will I ever forget just how wonderful Dr. Dani was to him and that his last feelings were that of relief and comfort, not confusion and fear. She is an angel in every sense of the word. Thank you just doesn't seem adequate to know that the unique service she provided allowed Cade to go to sleep in his own home without the stress of riding to the vet's office, which he hated!
Thank you so much Lap Of Love, thank you!
Rest in Peace my sweet angel boy!

Calie was about 2yrs old according to the vet, when he came into my life in 1994 in San Diego when I saw him looking at me through my patio door. The minute I opened that door, he walked into our home and into our hearts. I named him Calie, short for California. We had many adventures including driving cross country on route 66 in a moving van. The love and comfort that he gave us can never be expressed in words. He would comfort and listen to me when a I had a bad day. Every evening he would curl up in my arm and sleep (sometimes snore). He was a very smart little guy, opening drawers, cabinets and always understood what you said to him. A day didn't go by where his antics would bring a laugh or smile to us. He was a crazy eater, always sneaking people food, including vegetables. That stopped 4 yrs ago when he was diagnosed with diabetes.

This past year he had pancreatitis, which we treated and learned he had a heart murmur. All seemed well till end of Oct when he wasn't really eating and losing weight. After several tests we learned in Nov that he was in renal failure. We were heartbroken over the news and in making the decision to end his suffering. I cherished every minute/day we had, toward the end he would lay on my chest with his head tucked under my chin. There we would feel each other’s warmth and I would feel his heat beat, I wonder if he heard mine. Lap of love & Dr.Lewis was a blessing that allowed Calie to be in my arms, in his warm home and listening to soft music( his favorite)as he passed. He joined his dog cousins Tags, Charlie and Harley at the Rainbow bridge. Thank you, my precious little boy for choosing us to share your life with for almost 18 wonderful yrs. We love you and miss you dearly. Run and play till we meet again.

On Jan 27, 2012, my husband and I had to make the toughest decision of our lives. We had to put down our beloved Casesar, a yellow lab who was almost 14 years old, due to severe pain caused by his hip dysplasia. He was the best dog ever. He was truly our best friend and we miss him terribly. Dr Buisson was awesome. She helped us through a very difficult time. Her compassion, patience and understanding really made a huge difference. Lap of Love was also amazing. They took care of everything and were very professional!

We would highly recommend Dr Buisson and Lap of Love to anyone who needs your services. We miss Caesar so much, but you have helped ease our pain. Forever grateful

I was not a “cat” person. I’ve had mostly dogs all my life. When Cheeser came into our lives, we had a dog. Cheese decided we needed a cat. Cheese had an owner that lived about 3 miles from our house. The first time he showed up, we called his people and they came to get him. Four return visits later, I suggested to the owner that Cheese become a permanent resident in our house. It was obvious his family loved him but they reluctantly agreed since Cheese was crossing busy roads to get to our house. Cheese chose us. I feel sure this was a difficult decision for them. I will forever be in their debt for allowing me the privilege of loving Cheese for 8 of his 16 years of life.

An equally difficult decision is to let go of a beloved pet. Cheeser had cancer. He managed to fight it with 2 surgeries and 11 months of life. Ultimately, cancer won. What cancer has not taken is our loving memories of a unique and wonderful cat. Cheese had a gift of making people love him. He administered intense “cat healing therapy” when you were sick. He loved outside and the hotter, the better. Cheese lived large in every way.

I am so grateful for Dr. Dana Lewis and the service she provided. Having Cheese breathe his last breath in the place he loved the best, outside, made all the difference. He was fat and happy until the end.

Cheese, you have made me a “cat” person. You will be missed and loved always.

“A couple of days ago, Chi Chi, my female pit bull would have been 13 years old. On December 31st 2011, I had to take one of the hardest decisions of my life. Thanks to lap of love and Doctor Annie Golden, this moment has gone the smoothest it could ever had. Yes, it was absolutely heart breaking for my wife and I to make this decision but it was unbearable to watch our dog suffer. She had been so full of energy all her life, swimming, running, jumping, playing with kids. She was my first dog and she accepted 2 more dogs and 2 cats also rescued, as part of our pack.
She suffered from mammary tumors, and had many surgeries. She always recovered pretty fast. But last December, a few months after her last surgery, even though she seemed fine, in only a few days, she lost mobility. Everything changed. I could not see that joy in her anymore, that smile that was in her face every time you looked at her. She was asking for help.
When Doctor Annie Golden arrived, her energy was already helping us. She explained us the process and helped us all to relax. She is a sweet, passionate, caring person, and very professional. All our pets were lying down in the bedroom, next to Chi Chi. When it was time to do the injection; we were all around her to feel her last breath. It was a sad moment but also a relief to think she didn't have to suffer any longer. And above all, she was surrounded by her family and this is priceless. Thanks to Lap of Love, and big thanks to Doctor Annie Golden.”
