Pet Memorials
Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
4/15/2001 - 11/10/2015We have had many pets, animal friends, companions, whatever term you choose that we were fascinated by, or in love with the beauty of, laughed at the funny behavior and displays of their views of the world; we felt " Loved:" and most certainly needed by many witty and wise creatures from a hungry infant beak, to aged paws or turtle claws clutching a grateful treat. We loved them as one bestows love or charity, at holidays. But Cutter, Vivian, and I, fell in love on a kinship level. The love and bond we shared was like a radio channel into the eyes and ears of another creature’s world. The old Lassie theme episodes of saving your life by getting help, or, would your dog leap off a cliff or ledge trusting you being below...Bah, that was baby stuff for the likes of us. Cutter proved himself a hero to human and dog, But THIS DOG KNEW when you were crying and hurt even on the inside and his 45 pounds of athlete dog leap into your lap, and his gold lupine eyes said "I understand, and I'll never leave your side". They don't judge empathy, psychic-atonement, or agape' in the show ring or our Cutter would have had a room full of ribbons!Richard and Vivian MuggVallejo, CaliforniaNovember 19, 2015
5/25/2003 - 11/17/2015Dear Angel,
You will be truly missed and we love you so much. You were a great dog! You protected us from the mailman, and from anyone else you thought was a threat. We will miss you barking like crazy whenever the mail came. We will miss you staring at us when you wanted to eat our food. We will miss you and everything you did for us. I will miss taking you to the park, and waiting for you when you rested at the gazebo. I will miss buying you your favorite treats, and just petting you and saying "good girl Angel!" even after you bark for no reason. :)
I love you so much Angel, and I hope you knew just how much. We all miss you terribly. May you run free at any park you like now. We will see you again and we can't wait. We will have so many treats for you Angel! I love you so much.

12/13/2004 - 11/16/2015Tucker, where do I even begin? You and your brother have been everything to us. The loves of our life, the children we never had, the sunshine in our everyday. You have taught us so much more than we could have ever imagined like Always love and comfort others, Put yourself second, Don't take life so seriously it's ok to be silly, Be beautiful on the inside not just outwardly, Stop and listen and try to understand, Always be neat and tidy and clean up after yourself, Appreciate music, Don't be afraid to be curious so go ahead and give that door a little nudge and so much more...its endless.
My beautiful, soft, smart, funny, sweet, good, amazing, and caring boy, I will miss you more than I could ever express as our love for you and your brother simply can't be translated with just mere words. Rest easy now free from pain and know that we think of you always and we look forward
....until the day we meet again. Loving you forever and always.

1/7/2008 - 11/12/2015Aysha had one of the most loving yet silly personalities, she always made me smile. Aysha had no shortage of love and as much as she loved adventure and found her way into it, she just as quickly was right with me ready to cuddle. Aysha had IBD since she was about a year old and then I got sick and Aysha wouldn't leave my side. She took it upon herself to make sure I was okay. Aysha was my best buddy, there are so many naughty things that she would get into but they were so funny and then you have all of the really sweet moments. Two days before; Aysha was so sick, she had gone down hill in about six weeks time and no medication would help. I was laying on my stomach on my bed and she came up, curled up at my chest and looked up at me. I knew she couldn't fight anymore, she was to sick but as she always did she loved to just look at me like she was telling me something. To have to say good bye was something I was not ready to do but I loved her more than the hurt it was going to leave. I didn't want her in pain! Aysha was an amazing friend and she is missed so much. You will always be missed and loved! I am so glad that you were apart of this family, Aysha Star one very loved baby!Angie LogsdonCharlotte, North CarolinaNovember 18, 2015
1/1/2001 - 11/14/2015This past Saturday, November 14th, I had to say good-bye to my beautiful, wonderful and amazing Dalmatian, Hefner. I knew for a while that the time was coming and it was a moment that I faced with both heartfelt anguish and consuming dread. I must thank Dr. Manetta LaVergne and the staff of Lap of Love for their kindness, understanding, patience and empathy and for helping me, do the right thing for my beloved friend. Thank you, Dr. LaVergne for helping Hefner to cross over the “Rainbow Bridge” with love and kindness.

Hefner is home now. They brought him back to me in a pretty little wooden box with a decorative carving on top. All in all, it is very nice. But I refuse to regard it as what it is, an urn. To me it is a Jewel Box! It holds my diamond, my most cherished possession, my exquisite, funny, dear and beloved friend. Welcome home, baby. Daddy loves you and misses you something awful, Heffie.

11/15/2015Let's just say this, you were one-of-a-kind! You did not like everyone but then again you loved us all. Sometimes we all could pet you but sometimes you only would let me. It was almost like a game you would play with us and you wanted to be the smallest boss in the house. We would laugh about it. When I got onto Jamie with a certain tone you would grab his britches and shake it you knew when I was upset and you would chase Jamie outside in the yard. Over the 14 years we had you you really gave us a lot of love and laughs with your one-of-a-kind personality you were loved and it will be missed. It's hard to put 14 years down on paper. Your family of furry friends miss you also Shelby, Macy and Brocksana. You are now at the rainbow bridge you're suffering is over. Goodbye little fella eat all the chicken and rice you want! We love you!!Jennifer HitchcockGrovetown, GeorgiaNovember 17, 2015
9/1/1999 - 11/8/2015It's been a week now since we said goodbye to our little girl, Allie. She left a huge hole in our hearts and in our lives. Allie was a gorgeous Belgium Shepherd Tervuren with a stunning coat and absolutely adorable personality. She worshiped my husband and would follow him wherever he went. She truly was daddy's shadow and would have happily gone to work with him if she could. Allie was just a very special soul - joyful, kind, sweet, gentle but still fiercely protective, very well behaved, independent, stubborn, and above all loving. Everybody who've ever met her loved her. She gave us so much love. We are grateful for all the years and all the love she shared with us. We almost lost her to a stroke when she was 7 so every subsequent year we shared was a gift and a blessing. Thanks to the acupuncture and wonderful Dr Freeman, the last two your of her life were made a lot easier. She retained her mobility until quite recently when all of the sudden she seemed to age rapidly. We did as much as we could for her, after all she was our daughter, but it became obvious that the pain couldn't be controlled any longer and that she was miserable. Allie was 16 when we said goodbye to her. She was loved and will live in our hearts forever. We are honored to have been able to give her home and that she chose to share her life and love with us. Allie will forever hold a piece of our hearts.Mt Dora, FloridaNovember 16, 2015
10/1/2000 - 11/6/2015My beloved Gryphon was a big beautiful golden retriever however despite his size he was a gentle soul who touched so many lives and made having a dog a pleasure. I rescued Gryphon or should I say he rescued me! At the time I had just moved to Florida and was very lonely so I saw him at the animal control and was instantly in love. We were inseparable, we went to dog parks, the beach, jazz brunches in Ft. Lauderdale and everything else our little hearts desired. He was an avid swimmer. He could swim in the roughest waves and as far as I could possibly throw the Frisbee, he would still go and retrieve it.Meghan BrownPompano Beach, FloridaNovember 16, 2015

10/10/2005 - 11/13/2015Max, you were not "just a dog" you were a 4 legged human, our baby. The love you showed us, has spoiled us. Your intelligence, gentle demeanor, and pure devotion is what we will carry with us forever. From the moment you came to us, we knew we were lucky to have you. Even with your health issues, from the moment you broke your leg at 7 months old, to the day you left us, 10 years later, you never complained. You just wanted us to love you, that's all you ever asked. And it was easy to do and we were happy to provide all the love you wanted. We are so heartbroken over losing you. The house is too quiet. There's nobody to greet me at the door, when I come home from a long day. There's nobody laying at our feet, just needing to touch us. No big brown eyes to look up at us, before going to sleep. I will miss the days when you wanted something, and I would say "say please" and you would raise your paw. Our conversations where you would tilt your head as you listened intently. To say you were the greatest there ever was, is an understatement. Everyone should be as lucky as we were. You were a one in a million baby. I cleaned the family room today, around your bed and found the bones you "buried" under the corner of the couch. My heart just ached. I will miss you forever my dear, sweet Max. Until we meet at the Rainbow Bridge, life will never be the same. You are loved...forever and always.Brian and Cindi WalkerSterling Heights, MichiganNovember 15, 2015
11/12/2015We remember the day that we drove out to the farm in Tennessee to bring you home. You had a very unique color, adorable spots and a birth defect that instantly attracted us to you. For twelve and a half years you provided our home with many memories and although you had your “quirky” ways you were a very special part of our family and greatly loved. To all of us, you were a constant companion and loyal friend. Although we were not the perfect pet family, know that you will always be a part of our family and that something will be missing now that you are no longer with us.
You were a sweet dog who we could always count on to snuggle with whether it would be to watch Netflix or read books. You were our first love and you will never be forgotten.
You gave us all you had. Whether it was being there when someone needed a friend or simply cuddling up close when it was cold, we could always count on you to be there for us. Although you had some unconventional hobbies, like licking the water out of the dishwasher or bringing dirty socks into the living room for everyone to see, that is what made you special and will be one of the things we will miss the most. You got the most out of your short time here with us, and we will be forever thankful for everything you gave us. Our home will always be somehow empty without the click clack of your nails on the hardwoods or your constant presence beneath our feet in the ever crowded kitchen. You will be missed but never forgotten. There will always be an empty spot on the couch for you.
