Piper
7/23/2012 - 12/28/2018Piper.. you were the absolute best dog I could have ever had the pleasure of knowing, raising, bonding with and loving over the years since you came into our home. It breaks my heart that we weren't able to spend as much time together as I had hoped, you've been through so much over the years and you were such a fighter, but unfortunately, some things just aren't able to be fought through. But it is okay, you're at peace now, you're no longer going to ever feel pain, and I know you will still be watching over my family and I from above. I will never forget you, my sweet potato. <3Amber BrownMurfreesboro, TennesseeDecember 30, 2018

6/10/2008Jadore,

I will always be grateful for the day that I took an hour drive to provide you with a forever home. Although people saw our fierce protector (thank you), we will always remember you by your goofy personality and being so full of energy that you weren’t able to “put on brakes” before colliding into a wall. Never the one to learn a lesson, you’d do it time after time. I will miss your greetings when I arrive home and the middle of the night escorts to the bathroom. LOL. You will FOREVER be a part of our family. Until we meet again in heaven...

Buddy
2/8/2003 - 12/29/2018We were struggling with how to make our Buddy’s last days/hours peaceful and not more of a struggle for him. One of the emergency vets in our area recommended Laps of Love. Dr. Will came to our home within an hour and made us feel relieved with our choice almost immediately. His bedside manner with not only Buddy, but his struggling family was something none of us will ever forget. Buddy passed calm and peacefully on his favorite bed, a baby crib mattress (he had many) with pillow and blanket by the light of the still lit Christmas tree. It doesn’t take away the sadness, but every single one of us feels that it was the right decision for Buddy. No anxiety, home comforts, his family surrounded him and he got to meet another beautiful soul, his favorite thing to do. Meet new people. Thank you for your kindness, compassion and being here Dr. Will.Rea LoftisWest Columbia, S. CarolinaDecember 30, 2018
Mielo
9/11/2006 - 12/29/2018I rescued Mielo 7 ago. He was a mess and I was broken. And in the last 7 years, we both came a long way together. We healed each other and I will miss him dearly. He was my loving friend and companion. He gave me so much unconditional love. I was so sad to say goodbye but I got comfort that he transitioned so peacefully and beautifully. And he no longer is suffering.
I love you Mielo and I'll see you on the other side.

Chloe
6/7/2002 - 12/24/2018Chloe, you are so missed. It has taken me a few days to pay tribute to my sweet Chloe publicly because I was afraid I could never find the right words to describe how significant and important she was to me. But I do find peace in knowing that while everyone reading our story may or may not get it, she did. We were the best of friends.

You were my Chlo-bug, my munchkin, my best little friend, and the first love of my life. I am so grateful for you and the many years we shared together. I will miss you every single day sweet girl. I can’t wait to see you again.

Roxy Snow
7/1/2004 - 12/27/2018After 14 1/2 years of knowing this black & white fluffy girl, I can honestly say that some dogs are indeed saints or angels, or both. Being my greatest companion and best friend over these past 14 + years doesn’t quite do it justice. Through years of painful injuries, divorce, loss, happiness, depression, achievement, and all kinds of change, she was my rock. She retained my faith that there is good in the world with her unconditional love & devotion. She got me out of bed & out of the house on many occasions and has shown me that we all get what we give.

I adopted Roxy from Petsmart one Saturday morning from Puppy Hill Farms. I still remember her being the odd fuzzy one in her litter & the only one left. She was a border collie/hound mix, one of five or six siblings who all had flat coats & she was the fuzzy one. She just was napping quietly away and I knew she was the girl for me & definitely was meant to be! She was house trained & never had one accident in our house, never chewed anything up. Although she wasn’t fond of the crate, she preferred to sleep next to my bed. She was never a long term snuggler, would give you some love & then would need her space. But she did love to chew & loved to run! Roxy was so bouncy and full of energy as a youngster that she acquired the nickname “Bunny”. She became quite the accomplished bike runner in her early years, which was an absolute necessity for wearing out the border collie part of her temperament. But despite all the crazy energy, she was an amazingly sweet dog. She grew up with our other dog Rocco who she was completely devoted to until he passed about four years ago. She was the sweet to his salty & never left his side, especially when he went blind. And despite being a sweet & cool dog, the only devious thing Roxy can claim to would be her love of killing squirrels. Her speed and cunning made her an amazing squirrel catcher. Strong prey drive, amazing speed, incredible smarts, & crazy jaw strength from years of bone chewing led her to be a highly efficient squirrel serial killer!

In Roxy’s later years she has had the great pleasure of acquiring a new family & garnered more attention & love than ever. She attained greater heights of chilling out & being an amazing couch or foot companion. On most days, I would imagine Roxy having quite the inner dialogue in her Judy Dench voiceover of her thoughts on house matters and how we should just go take a walk in her favorite woods just down the way in Possum Creek Park (or Rocco Park, as we call it). And as much as she didn’t care for the water, if there was a chance of getting dirty it was a grand day. I hope she will find some fun dog park to run to & find some dogs to bark at. The dog park already misses their great referee who would call foul at the young upstart pups.

As we say goodbye to our beloved grand diva dog today it is with the heaviest of hearts. Roxy will be missed by many. Roxy will be most missed by those who considered her to be one of the most important parts of our family. Rest in peace, sweet Bunny. You’re off to a splendid place free of pain & I certainly hope you’ll be there waiting for me on the other side of the rainbow bridge.

Charly Dewberry
09/01/2009 - 12/28/2018Surround by her Best Friends, with a fire burning in the fireplace and soft piano music playing , Charly was able to fall asleep peacefully on Friday, December 28, 2018. You fought a good fight but your little body wasn't able to hold on. This was so unexpected. You gave a look on Black Friday and I knew you didn't feel good so we went to the emergency vet where you landed in ICU. After many test and 4 nights in the hospital we got the awful news that you were in liver failure. No real explanation as to why but they couldn't stop it. You tried so hard to get better. You took your medicine and while you didn't eat dog food , did love pad thai. I will always think of you when I eat pad thai. You were one of kind and I will miss you forever.Susan DewberryAtlanta, GeorgiaDecember 29, 2018
Mia marmaduke
10/1/2003 - 12/28/2018Beautiful Mia, we sadly bid you farewell, but thank you for all the grace, elegance, and joy you brought into our lives. Every life experience we shared these last 15 years was made better by your presence. Thank you for the naps, the snuggles, and the endless fascination with all things new. We dedicate this poem to you.

We reclined of a soft Saturday morning,
bellies full, somber clock ticking,
nothing more to do than be.
We felt the murmur of the universe beat in our breasts.
The groan of another day, with its labors,
its respites, settled about us,
and we were eddies in the current.
In our stillness, we became perfect peace
and embodied wisdom.
No one was there to see our ascension,
but the cat, the wall, and I all understood.

With love, Rebecca, Ben, Jacy, and Genevieve

Bandit
11/22/2006 - 12/27/2018With a bright fire burning and surrounded by his family, our much beloved Bandit fell asleep for his final slumber yesterday, 12/27/18. A single look was all it took for him to steal your heart away. He was many things to many people. He was as stubborn as any hound and as intelligent as any shepherd. Bandit will forever be remembered as the one who snuggles in sleeping bags, chases scents and steals sock. He will always be the Bandit who took himself out on walkabouts.

We can still feel your tail barely caught by our hands right before reeling you back in from an interesting scent. We can still hear the jingle of the tags on your collar with every movement you would make. We can still smell you on your toy moo cow. Even though you are greatly missed by your loved ones, we are happy knowing you are now in the brightest sunlight chasing down scents in an everlasting breeze until your wonderful heart is content. Bandit, you will never be forgotten. You will always live on in the hearts of your loved ones and in each fire burning in every hearth. We love you and miss you dearly Bandit.

Piggy Smalls
12/23/2003 - 12/23/2018To the best cat in the whole world:
Mommy and Daddy love you more than you will ever know. Two years ago exactly you came to us. I thought I was saving your life by taking you in and giving you a nice home but little did I know you would be the one saving mine. You taught me how to love unconditionally, you taught me that my heart could live outside of my body inside a little ball of fur that loved my warm laundry. You will forever be our hearts. Promise to wait for us on the other side my Piggy Girl. We love you more than all the stars in the sky. 💔
