Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Coal
12/15/2020 - 7/13/2020Coal was an amazing and loving dog. I got Coal when he was a few months old. I remember his sharp baby teeth and his playfulness. He was always kind and good with people and children. He helped me announce my first child with a sign around his neck that he was no longer mom’s only baby. I have stories of him chasing two raccoons up a tree, catching a baby bird (which survived), and catching a squirrel (which also survived). We went boating on the Missouri River were he jumped into the water! I was terrified I lost my dog that day and then he resurfaced. He then played with other dogs in the sandbar. Over the years we shared so many more memories. Towards this last year he spent a lot of time with my dad since my dad could give Coal several walks. My dad was extremely tired the last time he was watching Coal because he’d want a walk at 4:30 in the morning. I told my dad to just tell him to lay down and go back to bed. My dad is a sucker for Coal’s chocolate eyes and would get up and walk him. I’m blessed Coal had such a special bond with my dad too. They were walking buddies. Coal was well loved by anyone who met him. I had one person joke saying they were going to take him when they left my house. He loved the snow! He would chase my kids down the hill when sledding. He would catch snowballs you tossed in the air. He loved bubbles as well. I’m glad we took him out to my husbands family cabin this last 3rd of July. We took him on a pontoon ride and he sat with us by the lake as we watched fireworks. We miss him dearly and he will always hold a special place in all of our hearts.Carrie BeachOmaha, NebraskaJuly 23, 2020
Brother & Sister
2/17/2007 - 6/27/2020My love for you both was likened to holding a huge bunch of brightly colored balloons. For 13 years + 4 months I floated just above the ground. Those balloons were filled with all or your love and excitement. Watching you both over the years enjoy the purest form of life and living. Hoping us as humans could find our way back to the simplicity of life and living. You both taught me so much. I did not teach you.
In three days all those amazing balloons popped. I landed to the ground with a thud. Nothing. Emptiness. My body and my soul feels so heavy these days.
I always loved that DOG spelled backwards spells GOD. Dogs and cats are the closest thing to heaven that I have ever encountered....

Lucky
5/13/2006 - 7/10/2020Oh my little Lucky! How blessed Poppy and I were to have you in our lives. I remember the first time I saw your picture and I knew that you would become a member of our little family. You stole my heart and even though you came into our lives for a short time, the happiness and joy you brought us was tremendous. You are my sunshine, my only sunshine! My heart is broken, but I know you are at peace. RIP my sweet boy, until we meet again!Angela CorentinLebanon, ConnecticutJuly 23, 2020
Licorice
7/20/2001 - 7/21/2020I wish I had words. This love has been by my side for 19 years. We’ve been apart for one day and already I miss him. My heart is broken.Lisa CBuffalo, New YorkJuly 22, 2020
Blaze
11/13/2006 - 7/19/2020It is with a heavy heart and incredible sadness that I had to say goodbye to my best friend Blaze aka Boo Bear. The decision made was one of the hardest of my life as I never wanted to let go of such a bond we had, but I could no longer see you suffer. Mentally I knew you were still a pup pup, but physically the damage couldn’t be repaired. I knew in my heart it was time for you to move on and become a doggy angel. So on Sunday, July 19, 2020 at 10:30 am you passed away peacefully in the comfort of my arms. Since then I catch myself talking to you throughout the day hoping you will hear me, my heart believes your presence is still around me, but my soul knows you are at peace and no longer suffering. We have shared a lot of great memories all 13 1/2 years of them. You were truly there for me during the best times and the most painful, and with that the house will forever feel empty without you. They say time heals all wounds, but for me this wound will never heal as you were a big part of my life. You will never be replaced as you were truly one of a kind. Just know I will never stop loving you, will always be thinking of you, and always hoping we will be together again.  I believe our journey is not over only delayed until we meet again. I love you Boo Bear always and forever.Nicole McKeonKensington, ConnecticutJuly 22, 2020
Callie
11/26/2006 - 7/20/2020Callie has always been the sweetest little lady - she never barked or made a fuss, she only wanted to give and receive love and cuddles. Her favorite place to be was in her Dad's arms with her head resting on his shoulder, or sitting on his lap while he took her to the park or for a drive. She came to us later in life and we discovered her small quirks and habits and we very quickly saw what a love bucket she was. Her last year was filled with stress and anxiety as she dealt with canine cognitive dysfunction and we had to make the painful decision to do what was right for her.
Dr. Elizabeth was so gentle with Callie and comforted us with her words and actions. She was very caring and gentle with Callie and gave us the time we needed to cry and say goodbye.
This is the second time we've had Lap of Love come to our home to help us send a senior precious doggie to a better place and we cannot say thank them enough.

Bailey
5/19/2006 - 7/21/2020To our precious boy, we will never forget you. You brought unconditional love and joy to us for many years. Our lives going forward will never be the same without you. You have left a hole in our hearts that can never be filled. We will see you again when our time is up. Until then run and play until we meet again. Your our precious puppy pie! Love you now and forever! Mom and DadMarie HardenManheim, PennsylvaniaJuly 22, 2020
George
2/17/2006 - 7/19/2020Our family got to have the joy of having George in our family for 14 1/2 years. Our kids grew up with him. We are grateful for every day with him. He was the sweetest guy and endeared himself to all of the neighbors. He visited our neighbor for pancake Sunday and naps by the fire on a regular basis. He loved cheese curls and being wherever the action was. This loss will be hard to overcome. Grateful that being home so much due to COVID-19 allowed us to enjoy our sweet golden boy so much these last few months..Glen Mills, PennsylvaniaJuly 22, 2020
Jack
12/15/2007 - 7/21/2020Jack was my buddy, companion, protector and faithful friend. Jack had the sweetest personality and temperament I have ever seen, and many people were touched by Jack's sweet stare, hand shaking, and nudging your arm when you had food he wanted a bite of.

He will always be fondly remembered and never forgotten. No dog can ever replace this loss or fill this hole.

Jack - in my grief and sorrow, how lucky I am to feel this way. You were and will always be deeply loved, and i will see you again my friend.

Love,
Phil

Kelly
7/17/2020 - 7/13/2020Kelly was the truest companion. My shadow the whole time we had her... She loved swimming, walking and playing in the snow. Whenever she was presented with a new toy or bone, she promptly hid it! She loved to take our socks and bring them to us and then spend lots of time looking for a safe spot for them in the house. She was the combination of a fun, athletic, active dog and a cuddly, snuggly, gigantic lap dog:) Though many changes happened throughout Kelly’s life, she was a comforting, loving constant. People often commented on what a dynamic personality she had. She was loved by so many:)Kristin SchmidtMinneapolis, MinnesotaJuly 22, 2020
