Hampton
2/6/2008 - 5/10/2016Hampton Reginald Knight was a special dog with a great personality. No matter how often I left and returned home, he would always be happy to great me like I had been gone for weeks. It's funny how even though he could not speak, it seems like we had every day conversations. I grew up with dogs but he was the first one that I raised on my own. He was a good dog and I will miss him but I am so glad to he is no longer in pain and I am grateful for the 8 years we had together. #riphampS. KnightAtlanta, GeorgiaMay 11, 2016
Holly Grace Wood
5/27/2006 - 5/3/2016Holly was just 24 days shy of her 10th birthday. She was the best friend and companion to our entire family. Back in mid 2015 we noticed she had blood in her urine. We thought at that time it was just a urinary tract infection or a kidney infection. She was treated with antibiotics but didn't get any better. Still had blood in her urine. So, the vet decided that holly would need a labiectomy (removal of her extra vaginal skin) because she was an old dog and she felt that the hanging skin was harboring the bacteria from her urine and causing her to keep a urinary tract infection. We put her through the surgery and she didn't get any better. At this point we were just perplexed. Our vet took xrays and told us the most heartbreaking news. Holly had cancer! What? No way! How? We treated her like a family member and took excellent care of her...how did she get cancer? I did some research online and began using frankincense oil in her food and the vet prescribed her some deramaxx to help with the inflammation. Those seemed to be working, but Holly still had blood in her urine. The vet told us that the cancer had spread to holly's lungs and that she had less than a year to live in December of 2015. How heartbroken we all were. I prayed to god that she would just go to sleep and not wake up. I didn't want to have to do the unthinkable and put her down. We made her last 4 months on this earth as heavenly as possible for her. Gave her anything she wanted, bought her extra toys, etc. About mid-April, we saw a distinct decline in her activity. The last week of her life, she did not eat anything. I knew it was time, but really didn't want to say goodbye to my buddy. She was my sweetheart...followed me around the house and sat in my chair with me with her favorite blanket. How can I do this? We were recommended to www.LapofLove.com through our vet. We didn't want to bring her there because she hated riding in the car and hated the vet even more. Dr. Sara Fletcher came to our home and boy was she an angel. So soft-spoken, gentle and caring. She told us that holly was only 24-48 hours from a veterinarian emergency and it was definitely the right time. We were all devastated, but so happy to do this one last thing for our sweet baby. She could be in the comfort of her own home surrounded by her family getting all the love and attention. Dr. Sara was so thoughtful, explaining the entire procedure to us and how things would go. She never rushed us. Our baby crossed the rainbow bridge with dignity. Holly died in her bed surrounded by us all.KIMBERLEE WOODArchdale, North CarolinaMay 11, 2016
Newton
5/19/1999 - 5/5/2016We are deeply mourning the loss of our beloved Newton. We were fortunate to have him in our lives for 15 years. He truly was a remarkable dog. I know it sounds crazy but anyone who ever met Newton was touched by him - from people who normally are afraid of dogs to people who normally "don't like little dogs" - anyone who ever met him once was immediately smitten. Walking Newton was like walking a celebrity. Everyone wanted to know what kind of dog he was, everyone wanted to pet him, everyone wanted a piece of him :) and everyone and I mean everyone, thought he was a puppy. Even up until the very ripe old age of 14, people still thought he was a puppy. Not only did he look it, but he acted it!! He always had a bounce in his step and that happy little face like he didn't have a care in the world. And I don't think he did. Everyone was his friend. Everyone was lickworthy. And he had the best temperament. Even up until his last days, he always seemed like he didn't want to bother anyone - or be a burden. Although I know he must have been in pain these past few months with his sickness, he only cried a few times and that was only because he made a mess in the house. He was so brave and proud even until the end of his life.

Newton, I am so thankful for the many many years that I had with you and our lives were better because you were apart of them. There will never be another dog like you. We will miss you forever.

Lizzie
10/1/1999 - 5/9/2016Lizzie was my very best friend and loyal companion. She brightened everyday of my life. She was like my little shadow and followed me everywhere. She would wake me up every morning meowing to pet her and feed her. Then she would wait (sleep) all day on her kitty stoop in the window waiting for me to get home, as soon as she saw me, she would jump down and be at the door meowing and rubbing her little kitty face against me, as if she was saying "I've been waiting for you all day, I missed you!" I loved seeing her there, always so happy to see me. I know I will see her again, I hope she is waiting for me at the gates of heaven, meowing and wanting to rub her little kitty face against me and then, we will have forever together….Cheri GreeneOrlando, FloridaMay 10, 2016

Peanut
3/1/1998 - 5/9/2016Peanut was a loving, cuddly, social, sweet, and loving cat. I feel so blessed to have had her in my life for the last 18 years. She slept with me at night, was my alarm clock in the morning and was always in my lap. She always knew when I was down and needed some extra love. She was by my side for the passing of my Grandmother, my eldest brother, my Dad and my Mom and always gave her love unconditionally (but a treat never hurt!). I miss her greeting me in the morning, when I come home from work and cuddling on the couch in the evening for a book, a hockey game or our favorite sitcom. I miss her joy of playing and how she LOVED her brush, but insisted you hold the brush still and she would do the work. She was truly loved and made my life better for the third of my life we shared.Jay SmithRoyal Oak, MichiganMay 10, 2016
April
8/27/2003 - 4/19/2016In Loving Memory of April Testimonial to Dr. Brad Bates, DVM
8/27/03 – 4/19/16

April, although your golden heart has stopped beating, we will always remember your loving and playful spirit, boundless energy, gentle disposition and wonderfully inquisitive mind. Even as you grew weaker you were still excited to go on long walks at your favorite park, and during your favorite seasons (spring and winter) you so loved to smell the flowers in bloom and to romp through the snow.

On the day that your golden heart stopped beating, God wrapped his arms around you and took you to a place where you will suffer no more pain and where you can run, jump and play and enjoy long walks to your heart’s desire! You were a part of our family for 12 happy years, and we all loved you very much.

Spirit
12/3/2004 - 4/3/2016In Loving Memory of Spirit
When my husband, Bill, took me to choose my Christmas puppy from a litter of three, they were two weeks old, eyes barely open and rooting around on floor. I attempted to hold and examine all three pups but one pup would not allow that. She managed to find her way back to me each time I picked up another pup. It was apparent that we chose each other. I named her Spirit.
Spirit was easily trained but like most pups she had a mischievous streak. She liked to run through the house, grab a leaf of a large Peace Lily plant (plant didn't make it). She thought she was a Matador, she would grab the dish towel and swing it in her mouth like she was after a bull, she also liked to grab a fresh roll of toilet paper from toilet paper holder and would then toilet tissue the house. She stayed busy!
Spirit was highly intelligent, after a few days of training, new commands, games and words were instilled in her mind and yes, she knew what 3 of anything was so need to try to stop at 2, it didn't happen
She grew into a beautiful girl, walked with her head high as she knew she was royalty. She loved to walk, play hide and seek and rides in "her" van. She also thought she was a dolphin, I would throw a volleyball in the air, she would jump and hit the ball with her nose to make it fall and chase it around the yard, come back to me and do it again and again. She was very protective and a great judge of character.
She rode on a Christmas float with ladies of The Ms. Senior GA-Carolina Pageant and participated in The Light The Night Walk for Leukemia & Lymphoma Society. She was a hit with everyone!
When I began to have back problems and couldn't play as much with her we got her a little boxer sister (Cherokee) as her playmate. They bonded quickly and Spirit began to teach Cherokee everything she knew. Cherokee idolized Spirit and followed Spirit's lead on everything.
When Spirit began having seizures and it was evident that she had a brain tumor, Cherokee didn't leave her side. As Spirit began to deteriorate she would follow Cherokee's lead. Borrowing the title from the song, "He Ain't Heavy, He's My Brother", became Cherokee's motto
When the time came to set Spirit free, Lap of Love's Dr. Sunday Cozzi was phenomenal. From the moment she entered our home her presence calmed us. Spirit had a good morning and began giving Dr. Sunday kisses as if she knew that she would soon be set free.
Spirit was the best friend I will ever have, we loved each other unconditionally. She is horribly missed by her family, a void that cannot be filled. I will see her again as she romps and plays and waits for me on Rainbow Bridge

Annabelle
8/18/2002 - 5/4/2016Annabelle was not a pet, she was a family member. She was my little girl and just had a special spirit to her. She was a human in the form of the most beautiful blonde little Pomeranian. She was a princess and knew what she wanted, spoke her mind, and always stole the show as well as everyone's heart. Words cannot describe just how amazing she was, and just how much we loved her and how much she loved us back.Cheryl Dwyer BeroTampa, FloridaMay 8, 2016
