Calla Lily Harlow
10/4/2005Calla Lily Harlow, my Lily Love, my Silly Lily, my Lily Babba, my sweet Lily Girl... You have been the sweetest dog, never cried, growled, snarled ever. Not once. Friend to everyone you met. Treasured member of our family for over 12 of your 14 precious years. Always happy to be with people and animals of all ages and sorts. My yellow shadow. Just an absolute love every single day. I'm going to miss you terribly, but you deserve the unconditional love and peace you've brought to us all these years. You have been one of a kind. A sweeter girl there never was, and never will be again. I will miss you until we're together again. And I'll love you forever. 💔Kelly HarlowPort Richey, FloridaNovember 19, 2019
Chuy
4/15/2004 - 11/17/2019We first contacted Lap of Love a year ago, when our Chuy was hospitalized for heat stroke and we learned he had a tumor in his chest. The Lap of Love Veterinary for our area came to our house and examined Chuy. She explained all of our options and exactly how the euthanasia process works. We chose to wait since Chuy seemed to be recovering. We enjoyed every single day of the next year with Chuy, knowing that when it was time, we would call Lap of Love.
That time was this week. Dr. Lindsey came to our home early on a Sunday morning. She examined Chuy and explained exactly what to expect and honored our wishes. I held Chuy in my arms in the chair that I always sat with him for morning coffee. He felt no pain and passed peacefully as I told him how much I loved him. Dr. Lindsey gave us as much time as we needed to say goodbye.
We miss our Chuy dearly. We know we made the best decision to ask Lap of Love to help him pass over the Rainbow Bridge. Chuy was 15 years young. He will live on in our hearts for eternity.
Sincerely,
Elyse and Mike

Vader
1/16/2007 - 11/17/2019I miss my cuddle buddy, Vader, so much. He was the best dog ever, if I could have created a dog with everything wonderful, it would be him. I will never stop missing him and I wish I could have one more hug.Marianne BesseyLansdowne, PennsylvaniaNovember 19, 2019

7/21/2004 - 11/15/2019Tribute to a Best Friend

Sunlight streams through the window pane
unto a spot on the floor….
then I remember,
it’s where you used to lie,
but now you are no more.
Our feet walk down a hall of carpet,
and muted echoes sound….
then I remember,
It’s where your paws would joyously abound.
A voice is heard along the road,
and up beyond the hill,
then I remember it can’t be yours….
your golden voice is still.
But I’ll take that vacant spot of floor
and empty muted hall
and lay them with the absent voice
and unused dish along the wall.
I’ll wrap these treasured memorials
in a blanket of my love
and keep them for my best friend
until we meet above.

Oliver
8/25/2002Oliver passed away peacefully, at home, in my arms on Tuesday. He had been my fur baby for over 17 years.

I’ve had other cats but I have never had the relationship with a pet that I did with Ollie. I got him when he was about 6 weeks old. He was this little, 2 lb ball or orange Fluff. He was the most vocal cat at Sicsa. He would cry whenever he was put back in his cage and reached out to grab me each time I walked by! He chose me! He is named after the children’s book, Orange Oliver: The Cat who Wore Glasses.


I couldn’t leave that tiny thing at home alone at a few months old - so he went to Florida with me - a few times- on the airplane and in the car! Yes- we drove 16 hours with a cat in the car- even staying overnight at a hotel. He did great!

It was just the two of us for a few years. When I had the flu, he went back and forth from the bed to the bathroom every hour all night long. He was either curled next to me in bed or sitting next to me on the bathroom floor. He never left my side.

Then we added Jason! There were lots of changes and he just rolled with it. New guy, new house, new dog (for a while). Then a baby! He always sat on my lap as close as possible to my face. Being pregnant was no different! He would lay across my belly and Avery would move so that she could be right under him. The night she came home from the hospital she screamed all night. Oliver was not happy! He would grab our pant legs in his teeth and pull on us and meow like “You need to DON SOMETHING about this!”

He survived another move, a diabetes diagnosis, and a new cat brother with no issues!

He was always very gentle with Avery. But when she was born her really turned into our protector. He would meet guests at the door- often by jumping up and smacking the window with his paws and hissing! What a welcoming committee! He would follow guests around - watching. He didn’t like it when people would chase Avery. He definitely made his presence known!

He was known for his sharp teeth! He has bit more than I can count. He sent my mom to the hospital with a bite when she tried to move him out of Avery’s room. He bit my dad, Jason, and many friends. He even bit the vet tech once (although that’s on her because I TOLD her to let me get him out of the carrier and she ignored me and reached in and put her hand in his face). He once trapped Laura in the basement when she was watching him while we were on vacation. He turned his back on my mom once when she was taking care of him. She was trying to talk to him and he turned his back to her and refused to look at her. He also walked my parents to the door one year after they had brought us home from the airport. He was ready for them to leave so he kept walking around their feet, going to the door, standing there and staring at them and doing it all over and over again until they got the hint and left! He could be a pill but that feisty personality just made me love him more!

He was always my baby. He would lay all over me- as close to my face as possible. If Spooky was on my lap, he would sit between Spook and my face- often sticking his booty in Spooky’s face. He would follow me around the house and he always met me at the door - Even when he was so sick he could hardly walk. Saying goodbye to him was one of the hardest things I’ve ever had to do. But I’m happy to know that he’s now at peace and I’m sure still watching over us from above.

“How lucky am I to have something that makes saying goodbye so hard.”

7/4/2019 - 11/19/2019God Speed fleabag dog. haha. You were the perfect dog for us and we are so honored that you were there that day at the pet adoption after all of the searching we did at the shelters in the area. We loved you and you loved us, that was never in question. We look forward to seeing you someday on the other side of the rainbow bridge where we will be with one another forever. Until then puppy, booooz, boys-is, mommy's boy, daddy's boy, great white bear hunter, muck monster, and all of the other names we've coined.
