Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
7/19/2016Dexter, you were a perfect surprise! You were Love in a fur suit! You strode into our lives with your smooth equine gait. The girls, Sasha Bella and Giagee, and I had kept a pleasant routine of walks and meals and play. We never suspected things could be better. Then you came along. You brought a different energy, a new perspective. I saw your reaction to the richness of our lives that I took for granted. I watched you flip toys in the air with a puppy-like Joy. Explore our home and property with rapt curiosity. Greet the neighbors as old friends. I watched you crush on Sasha Bella and win her over with your persistent play. You picked a spot on the couch and let Giagee know she needed to move. I loved how you stayed right beside me when we walked the yard. My hand was easily able to pet your head and scratch behind your wonderful floppy ears.
I miss your "old man" bark, your legs akimbo splayed out across the ottoman and your conscientious cleanliness. Our lives are forever changed for the better because we got to be with you!

4/15/2004 - 6/29/2016My family would like to wish all who have lost a loved pet as we have our deepest sympathy. Our family and friends will miss this guy he was always loving,caring and faithfull to all. He was always with us even on a short trip to the store. He helped welcome three new crandchildren into our household and allway's welcombed them when they came to visit, Life without Buddie these last 30 day's has been very difficult,we miss him very much.But knowing he is no longer in any pain make's it a little easer to bare.If there is a doggie heaven he has already made new friend's and playing with some who have gone there befor him. He can never be replaced in our hearts.Rick HatcherWarren, MichiganJuly 27, 2016
Precious Daughter
7/12/2016My Precious Daughter, I miss you so much. Time is not making it easier. You are and will be forever so special. I remember seeing you in the pet store, the cutest, tiniest chihuahua in a pen of other puppies. You were so small , You were supposed to be a teacup. I paid for a teacup. But, you kept growing and it did not matter.. I could not find a crate small enough, so I trained you in a little bird cage <3 I remember leaving a vet office and in walked a lady. She said "she is so precious!" and I replied yes, that is her name. Your gentle personality, quiet. I miss you licking kisses on my leg. I remember you barking , defending my bench at the dog park...your illness came on too fast. Your passing was too fast. you were gone before I knew it, I did not feel your spirit leave. you were just gone, a limp body. i too quickly wrapped the blanket around you and put you in the ground. i wanted to unbury you that night just to hold you longer. but, was encouraged not to. Your sister Heidi misses you. Long days alone, while I work , so I adopted another. But, it is you I want. My sweet little gentle girl. I will speak with you soon in a medium reading. And I will be with you won't be at a rainbow bridge, you will be on the other plane, just a few feet away. in fact, you are probably right here as i type. I love you, my special girl. thank you for accepting my quiet nature...i did not always have to be chatting for you to know how much I loved you. Forever my Precious Daughter.Jill MatthisMargate, FloridaJuly 27, 2016
You were my best friend and I will always be thankful I had you in my life for 15 1/2 years. I know the last few months were hard for you but I find peace knowing you crossed the rainbow bridge and you are no longer in pain. Now you can run and play like you used to.
I will always miss you and love you. RIP my friend.
Run like someone left the gate open.

Rio Bear
12/22/2001 - 7/9/2016July 9th at 2:37 my babygirl became an angel. Met by her sister Roxy in heaven I knew she would be ok. She gave us 14 years of unconditional love, protection and I lost count of the many kisses. Even towards the end she fought as hard as she could for me not for herself. The hardest decision I could have made but I know she was in pain and I knew when she kissed me after the first shot was given that she was telling me it was ok. Being able to have it done at home was such a blessing. I don't think I could have had it done any other way. It's still hard because the world and the people in it expect you just to move on and not realize when you take the peanut butter out of the cabinet you're expecting a wagging tail to come around the corner and when that doesn't happen it's like your heart crushes all over again. Rio Bear holds a huge part of my part forever. I can't possibly express what a blessing she is to me and my family and how I will never ever forget every bark and tail wag and kisses and loves. She was simply amazing in every way possible and I miss her beyond everything.Fayetteville, North CarolinaJuly 27, 2016
4/20/2004 - 7/17/2016Clyde was a great dog. From the moment we got him he was one of the family. Wherever we went he loved to be in the middle. He was smart, obedient, protective and loyal. I still think he understood every word I said. He was a great friend to us as well as all our other pets. His passing has really left a space in our lives. We will miss him forever.Tom BDelco, PennsylvaniaJuly 26, 2016
Maggie May
5/28/2008 - 7/25/2016With heavy hearts we said goodbye to our beautiful Great Dane Maggie yesterday. She lost her brave battle with bone cancer, and went to sleep to spare her more pain. She lives on in our hearts, with all her grace and dignity and her great big loving heart, and her beauty. She was only 8 years old and deserved so much more. If only I could have spared her, but all I could do is help pass as peacefully and painfree as I could. We thank Lap of Love, specifically Dr. Courtney, for making this possible. RIP sweet baby, foerever in our hearts. Run with Angels.Katherine McCollumRedford, MichiganJuly 26, 2016
12/24/2007 - 7/23/2016Happy was a member of my family, he never realized he was a dog,he was like a child to me and my family, our son, our friend, our most faithful companion. We adopted this beautiful humble baby at the humane society when my daughter saw him she said "this is gonna be my brother" he jumped and bark and wagged his tail happily that's why we named him Happy and happy he was from the first day until his last day. Happy your are our Angel now and we love and miss you every minute.. Thanks to dr.Jordan and Laps of Love for helping us thru this difficult moment you guys are amazing!Yokasta GomezMiramar, FloridaJuly 26, 2016
1/1/2000 - 7/22/2016In loving memory of our sweet Sasha girl. You are already so missed and the house isn't the same without you. I knew this difficult decision had to be made, but oh how I did not want to let you go. I know, though, that it was what you needed. I picture you now in Heaven with no pain, prancing along as you did when you were just a pup and I see you right along side mom!! I'm so happy the two of you can be back together side-by-side; attached at the hip, best friends reunited after 13 years. How I know you're hearts are filled with joy to see each other again and have each others companionship again. Sasha girl, you were such a good dog; so loyal and so strong and brave and courageous. We will forever keep you in our hearts and we will always cherish your memory. Thank you for 16 awesome years! Love, your humans Autumn and Madison and your fur siblings Baxter and Enzo.Autumn SprecherIndianapolis, IndianaJuly 26, 2016
6/22/2011 - 7/16/2016Cara ’s Poem

You see Cats in the corner of your eye slipping by
On important business or ghosting up to you and away
In play.

I see her in my mind's eye in that sunny window chirping like a sparrow or churring like the squirrels she watched
as out of reach to her as
She is now to me.

Cats watch you from the corner of their eye
They ask are you kind?
They ask for just a caress, a handful of love.
Just be kind.

The moon's eye is cold.
At night in bed my back is cold. No Cara purrs there anymore.
At day my heart is cold
No Cara chatters to me anymore.

Oh I see her in the corner of my eye. Almost.
Not really.
Not anymore my little girl cat my little Cara.
Little Cara.
