Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Gypsy
1/5/1999 - 1/17/2014Gypsy you were the best dog a person could ever have had. You were more than a dog, you were like my child. I love and miss you so much. Love your Dad.Wally ColettiPhiladelphia, PennsylvaniaFebruary 16, 2014
Zakary
8/6/1999 - 12/15/2013Zak was a shy, but fun, brave and loving dog, just everything you would want in a pet and then some. It was heartbreaking to learn that at 14 years old he was diagnosed with anal gland cancer.
After the diagnosis, we were thrilled to have him for an additional six months, but then he started to decline fast. Because Zak would get car sick, our vet recommended Lap of Love because of their reputation, and they would come to our home.
On 12-15-13, we called Lap of Love, and Dr. Kim came to our home. She checked Zak confirming our timing for their service was perfect (which took a huge weight off our shoulders) as his stomach and lungs were holding water, and he started labor breathing. She explained every step to us in the most professional, patient, kind and caring manner as Zak received his angel wings while in my arms. Our other dog, “PC” then had the opportunity to be with her older brother and “sniffed” him as her way of saying goodbye which we believe is the reason "PC" is doing so well now that he is gone even though he was the alpha dog, and she was never without him. Words cannot express our gratitude before, during and after, as Dr. Kim even took several calls from me weeks later. We highly recommend and will always use their service when needed as they treated our dog like their own and would refer to him as "our little boy."
Looking back, we were so blessed to have had Zak, and we repaid him by giving him lots of love and the best of care throughout his life and up to the end by using Lap of Love and A Rainbow Crossing for his cremation as we could not have “scripted” Zakary earning his angel wings any better. Our hugs and sincere thanks Dr. Kim and Lap of Love, Darlene, Tony and "PC" Schaukowitch

Coco bean
11/6/2000 - 2/14/2014In our eyes this was not a dog but a member of our family. She was loved so much and she returned that love to us and anyone who crossed her path. She was the sunshine, the moon , the stars and all that was beautiful rolled up into one gift from God. She passed on Valentines day which in itself is fitting. Our Valenties gift to her was to let her go even though our hearts were breaking. We loved her so much and put our feelings aside so she would have a peaceful passing. We love her and always will. See you soon and remember you are in our hearts, minds and soul. Love you Girl.Sal CardileNew Cumberland, PennsylvaniaFebruary 15, 2014
Presley
4/11/2004 - 2/10/2014You are truly adored Presley! Thank you for blessing us with your love, and making us better people. One of a kind and forever missed~Rest in Peace good buddy.Michael and Kristie PicklesimerPowder Springs, GeorgiaFebruary 15, 2014
Kibbles
4/1/1995 - 2/12/2014Kibbles also known as "Boo Boo" was 19 years old and lived a very long, happy, and full life. We are confident in knowing that he was very aware of how much he was loved and what an integral part of our family he was. We miss him more than we could possibly convey. Our hearts ache at his loss and there will always be a void, but we remind ourselves that he is no longer in pain and free from the ailments that old age brought him.Brianna WebbPittsburg, CaliforniaFebruary 14, 2014
London
6/6/1999 - 1/1/2014My beautiful angel. You will never know how much you enriched our lives. Every single day you put a smile on my face for over 14 years. I miss your broken purrbox, your toothless smile, your unbelievably sweet nature, your soft, soft, fur, your little pink toes, soft pink belly, and mile-long whiskers. Each and every day with you in our lives was a blessing I won't soon forget. I hope when my time comes, I'm awakened on the other side by your velociraptor purr and cold wet nose on my forehead. I love you more than words can express my furry little angel. I hope now you find yourself without pain or disease in a world full of love, adventures, and kitty mischief. Your daddy and I will never ever forget you.Marie and Nate NaidasHerndon, VirginiaFebruary 14, 2014

Keena
4/22/2005 - 2/11/2014Keena was the kindest most loving Husky she absolutely loved being with people.
She was very intelligent and a complete joy to have living with us for 9 years. Keena was a great loving companion who always wanted to please.

Cotton
10/1/2000 - 1/17/2014What can I say about my best friend of 13 years? We grew up together. He was my protector, and he protected me until his last breath. He loved me more than I could have imagined. He was always by my side, always knew what to do to make me happy. He may not have been very friendly to everybody but he loved his momma. I miss him so much and replay that horrible day over in my head way too often. I know he is not in pain and that's what eases my mind. Miss you Cotton and I love you!Magan StoutKnoxville, TennesseeFebruary 13, 2014
Nikki
11/16/2002 - 1/12/2014Having Lap of Love available allowed our Nikki to pass over with her mother, brother, and three adopted sisters by her side. Being at home and not in the sterile environment of an office (no matter how homey they make it) gave peace to the hard decision of having to let our loving Nikki go. Dawnetta in her compassionate and loving way made this otherwise painful and tearful event into, dare I say, a beautiful event in life’s circle. For her service we are eternally grateful.
For those who do not think that dogs understand death or feel remorse (in the extent that dogs can), let me convey Nikki’s final moment. Dawnetta had given Nikki the lethal injection and was listening to her heart beat. As she was doing this Orlando, Nikki litter mate brother, let out a mournful cry, which was the only sound any of the dogs made during the entire process. Dawnetta said that Orlando’s cry came at the exact moment that Nikki’s heart beat for the last time. It was a profound moment.
The mourning for Nikki is of course there and a night does not pass without us telling her good night, but with all the pets that we have had to let go, we are at the most peace with how Nikki was allowed to pass over the bridge.
God bless you Dawnetta for your service and especially your kind and beautiful way.
