Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Ricky
3/1/2002 - 10/28/2017I have been crying all day. Our house is so empty without our little "spitfire". However, I cannot say enough good things about Dr. Laura and the "Lap of Love Veterinary Hospital". Ricky had Lymphoma and it was with heavy heart that Bob & I made this decision. You always wonder if you are making the right decision....is it too soon, will I regret it? Ricky still had some good days but it was agonizing watching when he didn't. Laps of Love took us through a thorough assessment to reinforce our choices but even till the end they would allow you to back out if you wanted. Dr. Laura came into our home and came upstairs to Rickys favorite place (the green room on the bed") Ricky immediately sized her up and decided she was worth liking. She spent some time getting to know him, told him how handsome he was, talked to him, fed him treats. She gave him his first injection with a very small needle and then allowed us all the time we needed to pet him, talk to him, and give our final moments of love. Ricky could eat non stop so we brought him a bowl of food (his leftover special chicken dinner made by Bob the night before) He was so relaxed that he fell asleep with his head in the dish. He died doing all his favorite things.....being petted, being loved and eating!!!! I cannot believe how Dr. Laura got to know his personality so well in such a short time (though they do have conversation with you prior to their visit). Dr. Laura cut some of his beautiful hair off for us to keep and made us a paw print in clay before she left. She placed him in a comfortable basket with a baby blanket on the bottom and covered him with the softest blue blanket. He loved being under blankets! Bob & I got to carry him to the car (by the handles on either side) Our farewell to Ricky. I wish he could have watched his own experience as it was beautiful. We are really going to miss him. He added so much to our lives. REST IN PEACE RICKY...LOVE YOU "GOOD BOY"Janet HinchcliffeHighland, MichiganOctober 29, 2017
Tilly Bean Longson
10/1/2004 - 10/27/2017Today our beautiful Tilly died peacefully in our arms surrounded by her loved ones. We adopted her at around 4 months old – for Adam and I she was our 1st baby. She was a Boxer/Rottie mix and in her prime she weighed 100 lb. She took her job as a guard dog very seriously. She was incredibly smart and sensitive – she would remember a person yrs later after having met them only once. She was calm and gentle towards children and smaller animals – always tolerant of Harrison’s shenanigans. Tilly was the sweetest companion to everyone in our household, particularly her BFF Niko. She was quirky and had a sense of humor – she loved all fruits & vegetables except celery and was wholeheartedly opposed to zombies. You could not even say the word “zombie” in Tilly’s presence, so, we’ve long referred to them as “Z’s, for her benefit. I am heartbroken that I won’t be able to rest my feet on her velvety fur as she lies under my desk anymore. I cannot believe that my faithful friend of the past 13 years is gone. Hug your loved ones close...this time that we’ve got together, it goes by surprisingly fast.Audrey LongsonCharlotte, North CarolinaOctober 29, 2017
Sam
10/18/2017I miss you so very much my sweet boy! Every day since you passed, the tears have come. It's hard to go about my daily routine, because you were such a part of it. I miss kissing your little head before I left for work, and telling you I'd be back soon, even though for the last 3 years you were deaf and couldn't hear it. I know you knew what I was saying. I miss seeing you there waiting for me when I get home from work. I miss your head on my lap, you're doggy kisses on my cheek, and most of all...the unconditional love you always gave me. You were my very best friend in the world, and I feel so lonesome without you. It was hard to let you go, but I'm glad you are no longer in pain. I love you my sweet Sam!Susie LallyVacaville, CaliforniaOctober 29, 2017
Bo
8/6/2006 - 10/27/2017Bo was the best. His personality was just amazing . He loved his kitty cat, Lucy, and would let her lick his whole face. Bo kept my son's shoulder warm at night and was his nap buddy during the day. He gave the best kisses. He was loyal, loving, goofy, wonderful, and such a blessing to us. He greetes us at the door every single day and wagged that whole body. He looked wolfish, but was such a lamb. Our hearts are broken and the beds have too much room without oir sweet Bo. I know he is running in greener grass with his best bud Spike now. I can't wait to see them again.Susan LuckyMartinez, GeorgiaOctober 29, 2017

Rigby
3/20/2017 - 10/27/2017Rigby, we miss you so much. Today was our first day in the house without you. You were a pretty "big" presence with your funny personality and stubborn attitude. You were our family baby for almost 9 years. I ❤️ your big brown eyes that were so full of expression and I could always tell when you were sorry for some naughty thing you had done! It will never be the same without you. We hope you had the most peaceful journey in death. We know you are running after bunnies without pain and have seen your old buddy Kelton again.Sharon FoglerBaltiimore, MarylandOctober 28, 2017
