Bella
10/10/2006 - 10/14/2019My Bella, we miss you and your brothers Coco, Meeko, Simba, and Dusty every day. It was the hardest decision we had to make to let you and your brothers go. Your heart was tiring you out and I could see your eyes telling me it was time. You were diagnosed with congested heart failure three years ago and the cardiologist gave you two years, but you past that and saw three. I knew you were ready but I think you kept going on for me. My heart aches everyday. I miss seeing you in your bed next to mine and hearing your paws on the wood floor in the middle of the night. Hearing you get up in the middle of night coughing and drinking water. The house is so quiet and empty without you and your brothers. I miss your spin-a-roni you would do when I came home from work. You were my buddy for 13 years. Through the good times and bad. My listening buddy. I love you so much. ❤️❤️❤️ You will forever be in my heart and I will cherish our time and memories forever. I love you my fur baby.💕

Love,
Your fur mama and daddy

Zoey
11/6/2019 - 10/27/2019Zoey was our rescue dog. She was the sweetest most gentle dog and a best friend to our two boys. She was so obedient and you could tell she was forever thankful that we gave her a second chance at having a home. We brought her home the same week we purchased our first home. Not having her here just feels empty. If I listen carefully, I can still here the jingling of her collar.

Zoey, we're so sorry that your life was cut short. We wish you were still here with us,but knowing you are finally pain free and happy again,is comforting to us. We will never forget you and will always be missing you, babygirl.

Tiger
9/10/2002 - 10/27/2019This precious angel, my baby, crossed the Rainbow Bridge yesterday and I have never felt such grief.
But, I also have never felt that kind of love, 100% devotion, 100% pure love. For that I am blessed and
grateful. My heart hurts so deeply, but the love we had for each other will forever make me smile.

Sasha Marie Aviles
4/4/2006My sweet baby girl Sasha Marie...we said goodbye to you two days ago it just seems so unreal. Daddy and I laid in bed sobbing (yes we were doing the ughly cry) until we cried ourselves to sleep that night. These last two days we got all our pics of you with us since the first day we laid eyes on you to-date.

Now I get to tell the world what and AMAZING, SWEET, LOVING ANGEL YOU were to all and the lives you’ve touched with your loving heart and paws throughout the years...here we go.

Echo
12/7/2004 - 10/23/2019Echo was the smartest, most gentle. loving dog I have ever known. We were so fortunate to have her in our lives for so long. We honestly think that she thought she was human with the array of emotions she expressed. With her beautiful markings and silky hair she always drew attention. She was my watch dog while I worked outside so that no one could sneak up on us. I still see her shadow around the house and will miss her forever. It was extremely painful to say goodbye to our furry friend but we did not want her to suffer anymore. We will always treasure her memory and will be eternally grateful to Lap of Love for helping us. She is survived by her sister Henna. We hope to be with you again Echo.# Rainbow Bridge.

Baxter
Baxter had to leave us last Friday. He was a beloved member of our family and he will be sadly missed by us and Addie, Mannie, and Taz, his canine brothers and sister. Baxter was a sweet, loving boy who never met a stranger and who rolled over when anyone approached so you would know he was giving himself to you. He lived a good life but lost his sight in the last months. We were amazed at how well he was able to navigate without the ability to see and how his tail never stopped wagging. We love you Baxter and you will never be forgotten.Susan HarrisLithonia, GeorgiaOctober 28, 2019
Sadie
3/27/2004 - 10/20/2019Like so many pet parents we were faced with the heart breaking decision to help our beloved pup go to the Rainbow Bridge. Our Sadie came to us 12 1/2 years ago as an underweight, shy, sweet girl. She was loved beyond words and brought so much to our family. She was the only dog I had ever known who smiled, I mean really smiled. She was a Mama's girl and followed me like a baby duck. We were so blessed to have the privilege of being the guardians of this Angel. As sick as she was in the end, she still wanted to please and be with her family. We are forever changed. The last gift we could give our girl was to have her life end peacefully and without fear in her own home. Dr. Cabell came to us and with the utmost respect and caring. She helped Sadie and us to say goodbye. She helped us with what was impossible. Rest my sweet pup and I know we will be together again. Thank you for all the love and joy!Colleen SozioSkillman, New JerseyOctober 28, 2019
Lola
2/21/2008 - 10/26/2019We made the difficult decision to lay our beloved pug, Lola, to rest. Because of her fear and anxiety of the car and at the vet, we knew we wanted her to pass peacefully in our home, in my arms. Lola had a long, almost 12 years, of life. She started out as a rambunctious puppy to a protective adult and finally, a blind senior who began to suffer at the end. Despite her special needs and her trauma, Lola was always lovable. She showed her love in so many ways, my favorite being her head laid gently on my arm as we sat on the couch together.Syden AbrenicaParsippany, New JerseyOctober 27, 2019
Gabby
8/12/2004 - 10/22/2019We loved our Gabby girl so very much. She spent 15 years giving us so much love and we miss her terribly. Gabby was the leader of our pack. She loved to play frisbee and tug-of-war with her Daddy and her sisters. She always won! She was a fighter. Gabby loved to go for car rides & trips in the golf cart. She really loved people and other dogs...especially the big ones. She loved to "rough-house" and play. But she was also so caring. Gabby always knew when someone was hurt or sad. Gabby loved to kiss her parents....loved licking our legs when we got out of the shower, and loved licking Mom's make-up off every night after work. Our hearts are broken without her. We miss her every day and are so very sad. We know she is able to run again in heaven, playing with her friends and cousins. Gabby will always be our first baby. We love her so so very much.Cindy JonesPonte Vedra Beach, FloridaOctober 27, 2019
Mahlea
2/26/2019 - 10/26/2019Dearest Mahlea, we said goodbye to you last night and your daddy and I laid on the bed where you took your final breaths and talked and cried for hours. We laughed at times, watching videos and recalling memories. During this time, we realized just how much you had done for us in the last couple of weeks. You started spending more time alone in the bedroom, still in your favorite spot on the bed when we would lift you up, and we know that your intent was to help prepare us for your absence. Dada also realized that you trained us to be parents to our son, your brother, Dexter. Everything you taught us about patience, responsibility, and pure joy will live on as we parent Dexter. He’s only two and my wish for him is that he will one day get to have a relationship as special as ours was with you.

I know that my relationship with you over the last 13 plus years was and is one of a kind. You were there for me unconditionally & watched me struggle and succeed. You stuck by me through 9 years of graduate school and travelled cross country to a foreign land for my residency year, enduring Floridian heat and thunderstorms. I know you wouldn’t have chosen Florida, but you endured and made it possible for me to uproot us and knock out that final year. We made some best friends there and I know how much you loved the beach, so there was a silver lining!! You were there when we bought our first home, got married (obviously you were in the wedding!), and you showed us how welcoming and gentle you were when we brought Dexter into the world two years ago. You were so tolerant of him and I know you missed being the only baby In the house, but you never showed any outward signs of jealously. Truly remarkable, but that’s you.

We aren’t sure how we will do this. Your absence is tangible, but you aren’t suffering anymore and that is all that matters. I know you are running on a beach now, your legs are strong again, and you’ve met up with Sugar, Maggie, Oreo, and Monty. Just don’t drink that salt water, OK?! I feel your presence in waves of peace that overcome me when the tears won’t seem to stop and the weight in my tummy and on my chest feels like too much. Thank you for that. Last night I slept with your pillow and squirrel so I could smell you. Amazingly, during the last few hours of your life, two of Dexter’s butterflies emerged in their habitat. I find peace in this transformation and we will release them this week to the skies above as I know they represent freedom from pain for you and freedom to grieve for us.
