Rexy
9/28/2015My forever friend, my Siwwy Buoy, I miss him so much. You were my heart and soul and I cherished you in every way. I just couldn't help you fight your cancer! But, with Dr. Sunday Cozzi's help, I was able to set you free before your pain completely consumed you. You are gone but never forgotten, my Rexy, Siwwy Buoy!Heather DonnellyEvans, GeorgiaOctober 3, 2015
Rufus
10/26/2015 - 9/28/2015Your name was Rufus, but I called you many different names. Bubba stink, bubba, wee wee, and Rufie to name a few. You were my best friend and always by my side until the final few weeks when you were too sick and stayed in bed. Everywhere in the house I think of you. When Clark was born you'd follow me into the nursery in the middle of the night to be by my side as I nursed him back to sleep. Nights I sit in the rocking chair now I still look for you and feel your presence. Our many lazy days spent on the swing on the front porch or any place where we could get some warm sunshine, we were two peas in a pod. I'll never forget all the adventures we went on like hiking, camping, going bye byes with the window down so you could feel the wind in your face. You always made me laugh with your unlimited energy and determination, like when you chased and barked at the waves crashing into the shore at Raystown Lake. I consider myself very fortunate to have had such a wonderful dog in my life. Our trip to Vermont will always hold a special place in my heart as I knew this was the last adventure we'd take together.
People said your breed wouldn't be good with cats or children. We rescued Zoey and you two became best friends within months and you let her groom you! Then Clark was born you were very curious but gentle with him. Once he was able to pet you and accidentally pull at your skin you never growled, just walked away as you knew he was your family. You were with Tim and I for the past 8 years and we couldn't have loved you any more. So much so that when we saw you suffering we did what we thought was best. You will live in our hearts and memories forever, my beloved bubba stink. I will make sure Clark sees pictures of you and I will tell him about all the adventures we went on together!

Wallace
9/23/1997 - 9/30/2015Thank you for everything, my handsome boy. I am so lucky to have had 18 years of loving you. Rest easy, buddy.Laura SickingSt Charles, MissouriOctober 2, 2015
Bailey
6/13/2001 - 10/1/2015Our hearts are so empty without our sweet buddy Bailey. We knew the day was coming and we knew that we owed him the gift of passing on before he got to where he was truly suffering and not enjoying life anymore. He was the best, sweetest, gentlest, happiest dog. Faithful and loving to the very end even though he suffered from dementia and arthritis. On his last day he got bacon for breakfast, raw meat for lunch and we made him his favorite birthday cake and sang to him because that was the happiest we ever saw him. He would get so excited on his birthday and every birthday he always thought everybody must be singing for him whether it was his birthday or not. He loved his last cake and us singing to him. He took one last short walk, one last trip in the car to McDonald's for a hamburger and some french fries, and he brought the newspaper in for us one last time. We are so grateful Lap of Love exists to help us get Bailey to a better place in a peaceful and loving way. Dr. Christine was amazing, just as we hoped for.. We miss him so much. It's hard to describe the depth of the pain. 14 wonderful years with our boy just wasn't long enough.Jill SherwoodWoodbridge, VirginiaOctober 2, 2015
Joe
11/25/2015 - 8/22/2015joe was always a good dog, he was also so smart...you could tell when he wanted to mess with you (run away with his toy in his mouth as you walk up to grab it) by the look in his eyes. He loved just about everything from chasing bees around the yard, to just hanging out, watching TV. He was pretty spoiled, he got to sleep on the bed and had his own pillow next to ours! His birthday dinner was whatever we had for Thanksgiving, because he was born on thanks giving :) he was always such a strong, fast dog....but gentle enough to be around a toddler, and even sometimes would get beat up by his older cat friend ;) who we know still misses him. He quickly became a member of our family, and he will always be considered a part of it. He probably always thought he needed us, but it was us who needed him in so many ways. There will be other dogs, but they will have some big shoes to fill, and will have to earn the respect from everyone that our Jobie built and MORE than earned over the years. We are all going to miss you, but feel that you'll be around in some way. We al love you very much.Michael VikeBuurien, WashingtonOctober 2, 2015

The Rainbows Bridge Poem
RainbowBridge.com Just this side of heaven is a place called Rainbow Bridge.
When an animal dies that has been especially close to someone here, that pet goes to Rainbow Bridge. There are meadows and hills for all of our special friends so they can run and play together. There is plenty of food, water and sunshine, and our friends are warm and comfortable.

All the animals who had been ill and old are restored to health and vigor. Those who were hurt or maimed are made whole and strong again, just as we remember them in our dreams of days and times gone by. The animals are happy and content, except for one small thing; they each miss someone very special to them, who had to be left behind.

They all run and play together, but the day comes when one suddenly stops and looks into the distance. His bright eyes are intent. His eager body quivers. Suddenly he begins to run from the group, flying over the green grass, his legs carrying him faster and faster.

You have been spotted, and when you and your special friend finally meet, you cling together in joyous reunion, never to be parted again. The happy kisses rain upon your face; your hands again caress the beloved head, and you look once more into the trusting eyes of your pet, so long gone from your life but never absent from your heart.

Then you cross Rainbow Bridge together....

Gemini
4/16/2015 - 9/5/2015Gemini was my best friend, baby, partner in crime and such an important part of me. She was with me through everything and her love for me is unsurpassed. All who met her loved her, even those who did not like dogs. So loving, wise and such a big personality in a such a small package. I wish her peace in her passing and a whole new life. Rest in peace Gemini. You are my angel and I loved you more than anyone on this earth. I hope you felt no pain and you weren't scared. You brought so much joy to so many people and were the most special dog to ever exist. You gave so much and are loved so much. I will celebrate your life until I see you again. I love you Gemi.Elizabeth KennerLos Angeles, CaliforniaOctober 2, 2015
Ruby
9/17/2015Ruby was such a sweet girl and was a beloved member of our family for almost 16 years. She was my third child, and I will miss her dearly. Dr Dana took great care of sweet Ruby, and her passing was very peaceful.

Ruby was her moms favorite because she was always the one who fed and cuddled with her, but one of my favorite memories of her in her more active years was retrieving the ball. Most of the she didn't bring it back. She was fiercely independent and will be missed by us all

Betty

12 years ago you came into my life at 6 weeks old. You have provided me, your other Mom and countless others with unconditional love, pure unadulterated happiness and years of joy. Our lives will be empty without you. May you have lots of flips, pounds of bacon, unlimited swimming pools and oceans, a real life polar bear, a large fan to keep you safe in thunderstorms and car rides with the top down. We love you and miss you more than you will ever know. May you learn the Art Of Dancing In The Rain.

Your Moms
