Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Buster "Boo Boo" Tye
12/30/2004 - 12/26/2017We are extremely grateful for the services of Lap of Love. Buster brought nothing but joy and laughter to our family for his 13 years with us. It was extremely difficult to see him struggle at the end of his life, so we were glad to be able to keep him at home, where he was comfortable and loved, as he went on his final journey. He is missed.Kathleen and Alan TyeFairfax, VirginiaJanuary 2, 2018
Lucy
10/20/2008 - 12/31/2017Words cannot express what you mean to me my soul mate, my beloved, sweet girl.

When your pain was keeping you from sleep, and I knew what must be done, for you gave me everything of yourself. I gave you my best as you did me.

I love dogs; I have several and love them all. I wonder if you have ever met your soul mate dog? I don’t know if this is based on when that particular fur baby comes into your life or it’s a chemical thing between 2 species. Lucy came into my heart at 2 weeks old when we first met her. She came to live with us when she was 10 weeks old, 2 weeks before my total knee replacement. We made it though double TTA surgeries when you were 3. My girl retired from therapy work (Delta Society) and R.E.A.D. (Reading Education Assistance Dog). She saw me thru becoming an empty nester, dealing with living far from my children, and moving back closer to them. She tolerated living in a small historic district and transitioned to a farm seamlessly.

My girl loved to swim in the creek and be anywhere I was. Lucy was always up for a snuggle and loved to lay her head in my lap while watching TV. Home Depot was her spot to visit after she retired from therapy work.

Myles
5/19/2005 - 12/31/2017Myles you will forever be missed in our family. Your kind smile was a light in our lives. Everyone who met Myles commented on his warm demeanor, and his adorable teddy bear like face. He was always there to help, protect his baby sister, Madeline, and baby brother Zachary and he took his job as their protector seriously. Myles has been a part of our family for so long now that we are all feeling a tremendous loss, but we know that he is running with his friends peacefully and playing with his friends who have passed before him. We love you Myles.Kimberly and Jason BellNewburyport, MassachusettsJanuary 1, 2018

1/30/2004 - 12/20/2017In memory of Sedona, the smartest, kindest alpha dog who never met a stranger and always knew when I needed love.Beth SmithCharlotte, North CarolinaJanuary 1, 2018
Buffy
02/14/2002 - 12/31/2017Buffy was a special part of our life, a blessing. We will miss most her nightly visits to our bed wanting to cuddle.
She was born on Valentine’s Day., and was the first born of 4 and her moms very first litter. I cut her cord and immediately bonded with her. She was very special to us, always so easy going and loving. But as she entered her senior years she became fat and lazy. Her favorite things were getting treats and napping, lol. Unfortunately all those treats over the years caused diabetes and then she became sick.
After having a dog and 7 cats in our home over the past 43 years, Buffy was our last, which made her so special.
Godspeed my sweet girl. You were so loved and you loved us back always ❤️

Skeeter
4/2/2005 - 12/29/2017Skeeter was our girl. She was our best girl. We loved her very much and when we got the news that she had cancer our hearts were crushed. 24 days. That's how long we had with her after we got the news. In those 24 days she had her good days and her bad days. Her good days would make us smile and laugh at just how frisky our old girl could be, but the bad days broke our hearts. She so badly wanted to do the things she used to, but it just became too much for her to handle. Quickly the easiest things became the hardest. We spent our last weeks together getting outside when we could, hanging out together as a family, and just cuddling our sweet girl. Her last day was spent taking car rides, eating cheeseburgers and ice cream, and enjoying one last trip to the dog park. It was the best day. We will miss her terribly, but we know that we did the right thing for her and that she is now at peace. She is waiting for us on that Rainbow Bridge and we will see her again someday.Stephanie DunniganLeander, TexasJanuary 1, 2018
Brogan
03/17/2004 - 12/27/2017Brogan, a collie beagle mix, had such a sweet, happy nature. You will be missed by me, my sister Peg. friends, neighbors and even the mail lady. You had the softest ears and anyone who pet them seemed to receive comfort and care. i know I "rescued " you 11 years ago but you brought great joy to me! Miss you handsome!Catharine UllenbruchAmherst, NYJanuary 1, 2018
Eddie
To the most mellow, mild tempered, cuddle monster I ever met. Eddie was a world tracker. He was born in Missouri, but moved to Florida
, Guam, and South Carolina. He had been to 16 states with his mom. He hated the beach, but put up with it for his people. He was loved by anyone who met him.

Sara
11/1/2001 - 12/8/2017My Dear Sweet Sara,

It has been three weeks since we said our goodbyes. The house is so quiet without you.

When your health began declining a year ago I didn’t dream we would be saying goodbye this soon. I cannot convey how painful and heartbreaking it was watching your body and mind deteriorate knowing that I could not stop it; only try and make you as comfortable as possible.

I miss our walks together and watching your excitement when we were getting ready to head out the door. You really loved our walks, and wouldn’t dream of skipping them even though your arthritis made them painful for you.

I am thankful for the 15 years that we shared together. You were a great friend to me and a special sister to Brutus, Katya, Sandy and most especially Dusty. The special bond that you and Dusty shared was so beautiful. We both miss you.

I am grateful that on your last morning you were feeling well enough to enjoy a last stroll in the park and your favorite treats that you hadn’t been allowed to have for so long.

I am thankful that we were able to say our goodbyes at home, laying in the sunny spot of the living room that was your favorite. I know how much you had come to hate the car and the vet clinic.

I know you are running free of pain and anxiety with Brutus and your sisters and eating all of your favorite treats now.

Rest in peace my beautiful, sweet Sara. I will always love you and miss you.
