5/14/2002 - 11/15/2015Ryder was "Oscar Madison" of Greyhounds. He would eat his food in 1 or 2 gulps, turn around and belch, and then jump on the couch, flip upside down and snore. He always wanted to be close. Almost every night would climb into bed and sandwich in between us. It was very hard to let him go, but it was best for him. The house is hauntingly quiet. He will be missed greatly and never forgotten.Chris webstergulfport, FloridaNovember 20, 2015

4/15/2001 - 11/10/2015We have had many pets, animal friends, companions, whatever term you choose that we were fascinated by, or in love with the beauty of, laughed at the funny behavior and displays of their views of the world; we felt " Loved:" and most certainly needed by many witty and wise creatures from a hungry infant beak, to aged paws or turtle claws clutching a grateful treat. We loved them as one bestows love or charity, at holidays. But Cutter, Vivian, and I, fell in love on a kinship level. The love and bond we shared was like a radio channel into the eyes and ears of another creature’s world. The old Lassie theme episodes of saving your life by getting help, or, would your dog leap off a cliff or ledge trusting you being below...Bah, that was baby stuff for the likes of us. Cutter proved himself a hero to human and dog, But THIS DOG KNEW when you were crying and hurt even on the inside and his 45 pounds of athlete dog leap into your lap, and his gold lupine eyes said "I understand, and I'll never leave your side". They don't judge empathy, psychic-atonement, or agape' in the show ring or our Cutter would have had a room full of ribbons!Richard and Vivian MuggVallejo, CaliforniaNovember 19, 2015
5/25/2003 - 11/17/2015Dear Angel,
You will be truly missed and we love you so much. You were a great dog! You protected us from the mailman, and from anyone else you thought was a threat. We will miss you barking like crazy whenever the mail came. We will miss you staring at us when you wanted to eat our food. We will miss you and everything you did for us. I will miss taking you to the park, and waiting for you when you rested at the gazebo. I will miss buying you your favorite treats, and just petting you and saying "good girl Angel!" even after you bark for no reason. :)
I love you so much Angel, and I hope you knew just how much. We all miss you terribly. May you run free at any park you like now. We will see you again and we can't wait. We will have so many treats for you Angel! I love you so much.

12/13/2004 - 11/16/2015Tucker, where do I even begin? You and your brother have been everything to us. The loves of our life, the children we never had, the sunshine in our everyday. You have taught us so much more than we could have ever imagined like Always love and comfort others, Put yourself second, Don't take life so seriously it's ok to be silly, Be beautiful on the inside not just outwardly, Stop and listen and try to understand, Always be neat and tidy and clean up after yourself, Appreciate music, Don't be afraid to be curious so go ahead and give that door a little nudge and so much more...its endless.
My beautiful, soft, smart, funny, sweet, good, amazing, and caring boy, I will miss you more than I could ever express as our love for you and your brother simply can't be translated with just mere words. Rest easy now free from pain and know that we think of you always and we look forward
....until the day we meet again. Loving you forever and always.

1/7/2008 - 11/12/2015Aysha had one of the most loving yet silly personalities, she always made me smile. Aysha had no shortage of love and as much as she loved adventure and found her way into it, she just as quickly was right with me ready to cuddle. Aysha had IBD since she was about a year old and then I got sick and Aysha wouldn't leave my side. She took it upon herself to make sure I was okay. Aysha was my best buddy, there are so many naughty things that she would get into but they were so funny and then you have all of the really sweet moments. Two days before; Aysha was so sick, she had gone down hill in about six weeks time and no medication would help. I was laying on my stomach on my bed and she came up, curled up at my chest and looked up at me. I knew she couldn't fight anymore, she was to sick but as she always did she loved to just look at me like she was telling me something. To have to say good bye was something I was not ready to do but I loved her more than the hurt it was going to leave. I didn't want her in pain! Aysha was an amazing friend and she is missed so much. You will always be missed and loved! I am so glad that you were apart of this family, Aysha Star one very loved baby!Angie LogsdonCharlotte, North CarolinaNovember 18, 2015
1/1/2001 - 11/14/2015This past Saturday, November 14th, I had to say good-bye to my beautiful, wonderful and amazing Dalmatian, Hefner. I knew for a while that the time was coming and it was a moment that I faced with both heartfelt anguish and consuming dread. I must thank Dr. Manetta LaVergne and the staff of Lap of Love for their kindness, understanding, patience and empathy and for helping me, do the right thing for my beloved friend. Thank you, Dr. LaVergne for helping Hefner to cross over the “Rainbow Bridge” with love and kindness.

Hefner is home now. They brought him back to me in a pretty little wooden box with a decorative carving on top. All in all, it is very nice. But I refuse to regard it as what it is, an urn. To me it is a Jewel Box! It holds my diamond, my most cherished possession, my exquisite, funny, dear and beloved friend. Welcome home, baby. Daddy loves you and misses you something awful, Heffie.

11/15/2015Let's just say this, you were one-of-a-kind! You did not like everyone but then again you loved us all. Sometimes we all could pet you but sometimes you only would let me. It was almost like a game you would play with us and you wanted to be the smallest boss in the house. We would laugh about it. When I got onto Jamie with a certain tone you would grab his britches and shake it you knew when I was upset and you would chase Jamie outside in the yard. Over the 14 years we had you you really gave us a lot of love and laughs with your one-of-a-kind personality you were loved and it will be missed. It's hard to put 14 years down on paper. Your family of furry friends miss you also Shelby, Macy and Brocksana. You are now at the rainbow bridge you're suffering is over. Goodbye little fella eat all the chicken and rice you want! We love you!!Jennifer HitchcockGrovetown, GeorgiaNovember 17, 2015
9/1/1999 - 11/8/2015It's been a week now since we said goodbye to our little girl, Allie. She left a huge hole in our hearts and in our lives. Allie was a gorgeous Belgium Shepherd Tervuren with a stunning coat and absolutely adorable personality. She worshiped my husband and would follow him wherever he went. She truly was daddy's shadow and would have happily gone to work with him if she could. Allie was just a very special soul - joyful, kind, sweet, gentle but still fiercely protective, very well behaved, independent, stubborn, and above all loving. Everybody who've ever met her loved her. She gave us so much love. We are grateful for all the years and all the love she shared with us. We almost lost her to a stroke when she was 7 so every subsequent year we shared was a gift and a blessing. Thanks to the acupuncture and wonderful Dr Freeman, the last two your of her life were made a lot easier. She retained her mobility until quite recently when all of the sudden she seemed to age rapidly. We did as much as we could for her, after all she was our daughter, but it became obvious that the pain couldn't be controlled any longer and that she was miserable. Allie was 16 when we said goodbye to her. She was loved and will live in our hearts forever. We are honored to have been able to give her home and that she chose to share her life and love with us. Allie will forever hold a piece of our hearts.Mt Dora, FloridaNovember 16, 2015
10/1/2000 - 11/6/2015My beloved Gryphon was a big beautiful golden retriever however despite his size he was a gentle soul who touched so many lives and made having a dog a pleasure. I rescued Gryphon or should I say he rescued me! At the time I had just moved to Florida and was very lonely so I saw him at the animal control and was instantly in love. We were inseparable, we went to dog parks, the beach, jazz brunches in Ft. Lauderdale and everything else our little hearts desired. He was an avid swimmer. He could swim in the roughest waves and as far as I could possibly throw the Frisbee, he would still go and retrieve it.Meghan BrownPompano Beach, FloridaNovember 16, 2015
