6/1/2007 - 12/6/2019Today is a day I have been dreading for a couple of years now. We had to let Athena go. 13 years ago we went to get a Silver Lab and found Athena. She was ornery, tiny and beautiful. She grew quickly and became a big and strong 85 pounds of lean muscle. Just gorgeous as she stood at attention. Full of energy, spunk and love. Five-mile run – check – swim in the lake – check – ride at the front of the boat -check pillow for the kids – check – adult therapist as we rehabbed an old house - check. A major part of the family is an understatement.

Sadly, Athena has been dealing with hip dysplasia, arthritis, tumors and a fairly significant heart murmur. All zapping her quality of life and her ability to do many of the things she loved. At first it was just not wanting to go upstairs, but over last month there was clear signs of significant pain – pills and proteins only go so far. Her personality, attitude, smile and spunk were never impacted – she is a Labrador and they will please and be a part of things no matter what. That makes the decision much more difficult, but it was time, her eyes told me it was time. She was too good a girl to not be able to enjoy walks, runs, snuggles and the basics. She was a great dog, my baby girl, full of personality, smiles and sweetness. I will miss her beyond words – it hurts! But she will always be with me.

We made the best of today we had ribeye, pup cups, Three Dog Bakery cupcake and just hung out. She Facetimed with Ava and the boys paid a visit. It was a difficult but good day.

We will miss you baby girl, but your pain in gone. Our pain will diminish over time. We love you and will see you on the other side. We know that because All Dogs Go to Heaven. Athena you have raised the bar for any future dog and you will never be replace. Love you baby girl.

6/9/2008This weekend has been full of emotions for us.. From being sad to angry to just emotionally drained.. Ella was our first baby who loved us unconditionally and made our first home complete!!! She was there by our side through loss and hard times. Ella adapted to her role as a big sister with nothing but her kisses and lots of them. This past week we found out she was a very sick girl and we had to make the choice of letting her go... This was a decision we knew of course some day would come but not this soon. Ella gave us 11 years of nothing but love and making our family complete. Yesterday we had Lap of Love come in our home and put Ella at peace. This was a very hard choice for us but she is not suffering anymore and that is what we wanted for her!! Please continue to pray us especially Clinton in the weeks ahead as we adjust and helping him understand we’re his big sister is... Love you Ella!!! Always in my heart ❤️Dana StinnettGlen Allen, VirginiaDecember 9, 2019
11/27/2019We are still learning to live without our sweet boy Dusty. He came into our life as a rescue but left as a family member. He was a gift that in the end reminded us to love more deeply. Our home will never be the same without him. What a blessing it was to have the opportunity to bring Laps of Love into our home and offer the care he deserved. We love you Dusty, FAA!Scott & Terri LindellEdmond, OklahomaDecember 8, 2019

11/3/2008There simply could not be a more perfect dog made for me and my family. Raiden was with us from the beginning. He helped us get married, picked out our first house, and helped us raise our son who is now 2 yo. We had 11 amazing years with him and our lives are so much better having had him as part of our family. We are so grateful for the time we had with him. On Dec 7, 2019 Raiden lost his battle with bone cancer. His pain is gone and his beautiful, loving and loyal energy is free to chase his next adventure wherever that may be.Cheryl TerranovaEast Amherst, New YorkDecember 8, 2019

1/1/2003 - 12/5/2019Godspeed to our sweet, funny kitty girl Maggie aka Mags, The Hobbit, Sassy Cat, Baby Cat, Houdini Cat, Baby Lion, Boss Cat, Squeaks, Snuffs, Snuffle Butter, Snorflebeast, Sunbeam, Sunshine, Baby Rooster Cat, Little Beggar Cat, Bacon Bit, Pickle Chip, Baby Toast, Crab Cakes, Vet Bills, Golden Girl, Spice Girl, Pucker Butt, Hover Butt, Baby Thermo, Ninja Kitty, Pet Stepper, Steamy Little Dumplin’ Cat, Swoosher, Fuzzy Muppet, Fuzzy Cat-erpillar, etc. etc. etc.. She had the magic ability to be called just about anything for nickname- especially food items- and it would suit her and be cute, i.e. “Maggie, are you an olive? Are you a chick pea?” Yes, yes she was. All that and more. This little senior kitty had a big personality and presence.
Maggie enjoyed her life to the very end. She was fighting to stay and have some more treats, fancy feasts, and purry naps on the couch beside her feline sidekick, Blue, and her humans, Donna and David, though her poor body was giving out more and more. We all miss you so much and would've loved to have more time with you but are relieved you're no longer struggling to breathe. Fly free, precious kitty.

9/1/2004 - 12/5/2019From Mom: How could such a little guy leave such an empty place in our hearts and home? Tigger, you were the sweetest boy, from your little mews and chirps, your headbutts, to your powerful purr. But you also could be fierce, protecting your family - standing up to lizards and even big dogs. You loved on your terms, literally leading us into the room where you most wanted belly rubs. Thank you for 15 years of life with me. We are better for having loved and lost than never having loved you at all. XO furever.Jennifer MurphyCoppell, TexasDecember 8, 2019
9/19/2004 - 12/3/2019My Dearest Hunter,
From the moment I saw you in the shelter, you stole my heart and I knew you were meant to be a special part of our family! You have been my constant and faithful companion for the past 10 years, never leaving my side. When Matthew went to Heaven, you were there through all of the tears giving doggy kisses and snuggles and providing a light in my life when the darkness was all around. You have taken a piece of my heart with you to the Rainbow Bridge and left a space that can never be filled until I see you again and we cross that bridge together. Until then my faithful companion, please know that I hold you and the memories of our adventures together in my heart! You are so very loved and greatly missed!
