Capone
12/14/2005 - 7/13/2019I don't know what to say....I miss you with every bit of my heart. We, We miss you, but you were a Mama's Boy from beginning to end, so my heart truly aches without you at home. You were the light in our life, when things were good, you made them even better with your crazy sprints, funny twisted body poses, silly pout when you were begging...to when things were bad, just snuggling next to us, or even moving our arms to lay under it on our lap, and by No Means were you sized to be a lap dog. But you sure tried.

You, my handsome boy were the Exact boy we have all needed. You were an amazing example of what a Pit Bull really is, a big ol' teddy bear. And I Hope changed some peoples' minds on that subject as well.

In the end your family was there, me, Dad, Grandma, Grandpa, Auntie, and Uncle, and even your human sister with a little help of technology. Not everyone who loves you, but the ones who loved you the most...

At 4:45pm on July 13, 2019 you went to run with the Angels and dance with all of our Grandma's who have gone to Heaven.

Until we see you again Papa. We love you.

Madden
2/16/2010 - 7/14/2019The day we received your cancer diagnosis we were devastated. We knew we didn’t have long. During the 10 years that we had you, we did some pretty awesome things. We took you to dog parks, dressed you up in fun costumes for every holiday (which you loved). We took you to doggie day care, and played ball outside. You would run so fast! You were a ball hog and never let us get it and we loved that about you. During the last few weeks we had with you on this earth with you, we carried you, we loved you unconditionally as we always did. We treated you as we always did, we spoiled you as we always did. The last few weeks were also very special. . We did a family photo shoot with you, we played ball (your favorite thing to do), gave you the medical care you needed, went for walks around the neighborhood, and had family and friends come and see you again. You touched the lives of so many. We were told all the time, Madden is a special dog and so beautiful. We knew they were right. You were loyal and so kind. Never mean or aggressive to any other animal or people. You were extremely smart, you were our protector. Your loud bark when anyone rings the bell will be truly missed. There is an emptiness that we have without you in our lives, but you will always be in our hearts. We know you are in a better place now, no longer in pain. In heaven able to walk, eat, play, and run. Granny, our poppas, and Camille are there with you. You were and still are true are a blessing. We are grateful you were a part of our lives. You will be truly missed and we will never forget you. Thank you, Madden for being so amazing.Wesley Chapel, FloridaJuly 15, 2019
Chloe
2/14/2002 - 2/5/2019WE HAD TO PUT OUR BELOVED CHLOE AT AGE 17 TO REST ON SUNDAY FEB. 2019 . IT'S BEEN COMING FOR QUITE A WHILE. SHE'S LOST ABOUT 20 LBS & HAS BEEN NOTHING BUT SKIN/BONE, HAD DOGGIE DEMENTIA, & THE SLOW GROWING CANCER IN HER LIVER WAS GETTING THE BEST OF HER.

WE ARE, OF COURSE, DEVASTATED. WE MISS HER TERRIBLY. WE HAVE BOUTS OF CRYING EACH & EVERY TIME WE SEE SOMETHING THAT REMINDS US OF HER, OR IF SHE CROSSES OUR MIND. THE HOUSE IS SO EMPTY NOW. I REALLY DON'T SEE HOW WE WILL EVER GET OVER THIS.

WE ARE BASKET CASES RIGHT NOW. SOMETIMES MY HUSBAND CAN SPEAK NORMALLY TO PEOPLE WHO HAVE BEEN CALLING....OTHER TIMES ALL HE DOES IS TEAR UP. SAME HERE. MY HEAD IS THROBBING SO MUCH FROM CRYING. IT WILL TAKE A LONG, LONG TIME, TO GET OVER THIS. 17 YRS. IS A LONG, LONG TIME TO HAVE A LOVING DOG WITHIN YOUR LIFE & IN YOUR HOUSEHOLD. HER SPIRIT IS IN EACH ROOM, IN EACH OF OUR THOUGHTS EACH DAY, & WILL LIVE ALL THE REST OF OUR LIVES IN OUR HEARTS.

Smudge
7/1/2013 - 7/12/2019Smudge, Smo,sassafras, big girl, my love., she was loved by so many people. She was my constant companion for the past six years and especially these past two have meant the most to me having her. I can’t put into words anymore than this. She was my baby girl. I love her so much and will miss her more than anyone knows.Shari HaganMooresville, IndianaJuly 15, 2019
Greta
3/25/2015 - 7/9/2019Greta was my soul dog. They say don’t give up on the hard dogs, they will give you something you never know you needed. And that is exactly what describes our Greta.

Greta had an aggressive type of Lymphoma with no cure and a poor prognosis. “Treatment” would have possibly given her a few months but that came with too many risks for me to put my Greta through. Even if I had all the money in the world, I would have still made the same decision. If treatment would have cured her cancer, I would have found a way to pay for it. This was not about the money but about what was BEST for Greta. She hated the vet and being touched by people she didnt know well. She was easily stressed and reactive. She was (and is) our soul dog and only we know what is best for them. And we did what was best for Greta. No one knows what having to make this decision feels like…unless you have gone through it with your own soul dog. I don’t judge people who decide something different…I just know what was best for my baby.

The last 2 weeks have been bitter sweet. Torture for us but wonderful for Greta. We were introduced to Dr. Brad from Lap Of Love and he has been a god send. We put Greta on “hospice” and focused our attention to her quality of life and making every day we had left…the best day for her ever. We made sure to do everything we knew Greta liked to do.

She did so much for us in the 4 years we have had her since rescuing her from ACCT, we owed it to her to let her go with peace and dignity. We started to see subtle signs of Greta slowly starting to decline. Signs that strangers may have not noticed but we knew. I knew. I knew every single thing about Greta, as she knew every single thing about me. We had an unspoken bond her and i....we had an incredible way of knowing when we needed each other the most. And I knew what she needed. And as much as it ripped my heart ….i had to let her go.

Dr. Brad came back to the house so Greta was not stressed going to a vets office. She initially barked at him when he came in (in true Greta fashion!) but we got out her favorite type of rotisserie chicken. And she ate chicken out of my hand as we told her how much we loved her and we thanked her for being our best dog, our very best friend and our loyal protector. I told her that my mom would be waiting for her, along with Daisy. And I told her that no dog will ever replace her but that we would be OK… And just like that…she fell asleep. In peace. Surrounded by chicken and love. In her own home. Surrounded by her people. We couldn’t have asked for a better goodbye. She didn’t know she was sick. She didn’t know she had terminal cancer. She didn’t know an ounce of pain or discomfort or stress. She didn’t know anything else but our love.

But my heart is broken. And my house is quiet. She was my best friend. And when her soul left her body today…a piece of my heart went with her. My whole family is sad but we are so grateful for all the support and condolences. I felt the genuine love from people that I may have never even met but grew to love my baby through social media. So thank you. My world will forever be changed…because of my Greta the Gremlin <3

Alley
2/1/2002 - 7/12/2019With a broken heart I must say goodbye. More than 17 years ago I heard you on the side of I-10 when I was on a job, the box you were in still had your siblings in it, you were the only survivor. You were so tiny I almost couldn't find you in the tall grass. You rode back to Tampa on my shoulder nibbling on ham slices until I could get proper food. Since then you've been by my side, playing, sleeping, talking, loving me unconditionally. So many times you made me laugh at your antics, and you melted my heart with all the love you shared. Sitting in my lap watching tv. Helping me dry off after a shower. Telling me you wanted Meow-Wow (turkey) for dinner. Playing with your string. All the kisses you gave. I can only hope I gave you the care and attention and love you deserved. I am sorry I could not help you when you got sick and went blind, but I am grateful you did not suffer even until the very end. I am very thankful we found each other and I will cherish and remember you, always a good girl and my best friend for so long. There will always be a place in my heart where I will keep you safe and I still promise to not let you fall.

I love you AlleyCat

Thank you Dr. Anna Champagne of Tampa Lap of Love, you have eased her crossing, and have been a light in the darkness.

Midnight - The Wonder Dog!
10/13/2005 - 7/12/2019When a loving pet comes into our lives, we call it their Fur-ever home. The truth is there is one more place that really is the For-Ever home. Our sweet Midnight - The Wonder Dog is made that trip on Friday (7/12/19) at 5:39 pm. He seemed healthy and happy for our trip to the beach last week. He was hiding a serious illness, as Heroes often do. We found out the truth this Wednesday and he has gone quickly downhill. It is time for our Angel to join the others waiting for us all at the Rainbow Bridge. I cannot WAIT to see his HUGE smile and see him wag his whole body again! He truly is The Wonder Dog! He has taught us the Wonder of how to love at a deeper level than I knew I had in me. We also Wonder how we will we live without his daily walks, talks, hugs, kisses and Amazing love. You Sir have been an inspiration!

Midnight The Wonder Dog 2005 - 2019!

This video is a SALUTE to an Amazing animal! Thank you God for bringing Midnight into our lives...we were truly blessed!
Special thanks to Dr. Sarah & Lap Of Love for coming to the house to escort our Angel to the next Adventure!
Feel free to watch the video tribute below! Thank you!

Fred
3/1/2019 - 7/10/2019On 7/10/19, we said goodbye to our dear old friend Fred, as he crossed the Rainbow Bridge.

He was such a wonderful cat.

Fred was 15 yrs old and we had him since he was a kitten.

Even right at the end, as ill as he was, he was still trying to be his gentle, friendly self.

Rest in peace, Fred.

You will be missed.

Brumby
7/13/2006 - 7/5/2019My beloved Brumby crossed the bridge on July 5th. He was the best dog that I could ever dream of sharing my life with. Our home was Brumby's forth, and I often joked that he kept changing owners until he found someone that could make is steaks right with the perfect amount of seasoning. Honestly, I think he knew he had a mission to bring more unconditional love, smiles, laughter, and loyalty to our home. Brumby had six birthdays with us. Posted are the pictures from his eighth and thirteenth birthdays. His presence is greatly missed. Run free Tipp Brumby; we love you!Erica MillerHouston, TexasJuly 13, 2019

10/25/2009 - 7/12/2019Jack
Today I had to say goodbye to my best friend. You came to me abandoned and alone and I grew to love you more and more over the years. I will never forget you and your silly ways. The way you got so excited over walks. It was your favorite thing to do.
You leave a hole in my heart but i know you are in a better place.
Rest In Peace Jack.
