Niko
10/3/2003 - 6/25/2015I would like to thank Dr. Dani McVety from Lap Of Love for helping me lay my dog Niko to rest comfortably. This is the first time in nineteen years that I now will be coming home to an empty house. The emotional loss and pain I'm experiencing is overwhelming and numbing, it's a total shock. My home is so quiet without his presence, no longer do I hear his paws walking on the hard floors or the doggie door covers flapping as he goes in and out of the house. I'll miss those early morning and late evening walks he took ME ON, no matter how tired or busy my days were I always looked forward these. The walks with him around the neighborhood or park were my stress relief moments and he enjoyed them as well. Our lives together were so structured meal times and walks were always on schedule, I never needed an alarm clock as a reminder because Niko would come looking for me. This all came to a screeching halt on Thursday June 25th 2015, I ask God to give strength and guidance to carry on without my boy Niko.Michael BarqueraLargo, FloridaJune 28, 2015
Bella Daisy Geegan
1/1/2001 - 6/24/2015Bella was a rescue dog who really rescued me ... from the moment I laid eyes on her (on-line) at "Little Doggies Rescue," Alabama, I fell in love with her. It took her about 30 months before she would trust my husband not to harm her - her abuser was a man. The day her tail perked up, instead of being tucked under her belly, was the happiest day of our lives. From that point forward her sassy, sweet and "I know I'm loved" personality came out. She would prance and do this little prancing jig that cracked me up because she was so happy. When we would come in from a walk, Bella would have this little zip in her step --- she'd run to get a toy or dive into her bed and roll around. I will miss the unconditional love she gave me and her loud snores. She may have been 9 pounds but she could snore louder than my 175 pound husband! I will miss her joyous spirit and nature --- how she would follow me around the house wherever I went. She would wait at the door and stare at it until I came home ... I called her my little "tater-tot," and I will miss nuzzling into her face and getting her little licks. She has left a gaping hole in my heart yet I am so blessed that I had nine-years of joy with her ... she went out with the same dignity and grace that made her so special, in her little bed with me right there by her side, kissing her forehead. I love you my precious baby girl and my life will never be the same again.Diana GeeganSt. Petersburg, FloridaJune 27, 2015
Champ
6/23/2015Dawn Ray and I found Champ in 1999 on a hike in Dixon MO when he was about 5 months old, starving, and with an awful gangrenous shotgun wound on his chest about the size of a porterhouse steak. We went into town and bought bandages and fed him, after he ate he looked at us both like "What now guys?" We, at the exact same time exclaimed "This dog is a champ!".

We could never have afforded to fix Champ, but the folks at the Barns hospital research department did it because Dawn worked there, they thought the broad spectrum antibiotics would shorten his life considerably, he didn't. Over the next few years BB's from the shot would bounce out on the floor sometimes when he scratched, and one never came out of his forehead, sometimes I called him 'BB head'!

Champ became mine and my friends, family and coworkers daily companion for the next 15 years. I loved to take him camping the most, he was an excellent swimmer for his webbed paws and having spent his first few months scrounging along the Gasconade river. Champ was extremely friendly but an alpha personality, I once witnessed a good friend's two labs twice his size start following him around the yard after about an hour of intense debate. ;)

I took him everywhere including to work until a few years ago when he became a little more boisterous, so we started spending more time at home where we have a big yard with lots of company and play.

His mind and body have been failing now for quite some time, this is the toughest thing I've ever done but it was time to set him free.

I love you Champ, you're the best friend a guy could ever have, and if there's a Dog Heaven, I'm quite sure you'll be running things in no time!

Gizmo
6/15/2002 - 6/23/2015The house is quiet without your loud purring and meows. You haven’t been laying on the back of the couch on your favorite blanket. You are missed. You are loved more than you know. You have been there with us since the beginning…every milestone, every celebration, every part of our lives had you in it. You were our first “fur baby” and you gracefully welcomed our other fur babies into the family, and even our human babies. You made us a family from the day we brought you home in a coca-cola box. We will miss you meowing at us in the morning when you’re hungry. I will miss your little clumps of white fur on the stairs moments after I cleaned the house. I will miss having stare-offs with you, looking into your big green eyes. We will see you again one day, Gizmo…Goozie…king cat. Love, Mom and Dad, Dignan and Guinness, Bridget and Henry.Erin DawkinsClawson, MichiganJune 24, 2015
Chief
4/25/2015 - 6/21/2015When our beloved Chief was diagnosed with a nasal tumor 6 months ago, we knew we had to do everything we could to make his final days as happy and painless as possible. That's when we started researching in-home euthanasia and came across Lap of Love. What an amazing organization with dedicated, caring veterinarians! From my first contact with Dr. Katie describing Chief and the situation to the final call scheduling an appointment, she could not have been any sweeter or more compassionate. Thanks to her, our baby was able to leave this world with our entire family at his side on his favorite bed. It was one of the saddest and yet most beautiful moments I've ever experienced. I cannot recommend the services of Dr. Katie or Lap of Love enough - they are truly remarkable!Amy DungeySaint Johns, FloridaJune 24, 2015
Tony
6/25/2002 - 6/22/2015We will forever miss Tony, our beloved golden retriever. Our other furry ones keep looking for him. There is a void, tears and heartache right now but this will pass. That void will be filled one day with joy, laughter and memories of our beautiful boy.
Tony was eagerly waiting at the rainbow bridge for his owner and mom Georgia Ransom who died peacefully in her sleep the following day. Now they have each other forever...

Kess
12/24/1999 - 6/16/2015Kess,

The house is empty without you. I miss the sound of you walking on the hardwood floors in the morning as I wake. I miss your beautiful smile and "nudging" as I walk into the house. With this said, I am so grateful for having you in our family! You were a blessing I didn't know I was missing. Our family was complete when you entered our home that Christmas Eve! Thank you for all the years you were with us and know you are missed so....very.....much.
