Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Chloe Cope
12/22/2020 - 10/15/2020Chloe Cope 12/22/2007 - 10/15/2020

At 3:53 this afternoon our precious Chloe crossed over the Rainbow Bridge 💔💔💔. She has been fighting lymphoma since early on in the pandemic. She was diagnosed in April and only given a few weeks to live. But Chloe being Chloe she was stubborn and proved the doctor wrong. I suspect she just wanted One more Summer (her favorite season). As Summer turned to Fall her breathing became more labored and at times stridorous, and she has almost completely lost the use of her hind legs. I made her the promise when she was diagnosed that I would not let her suffer. Although I dont think she is in pain, I am certain she is mentally frustrated and confused with the changes she is experiencing. And so with her quality of life significantly and rapidly failing we made the decision to end her suffering and euthanize her here at home. Late this afternoon, surrounded by Lisa, Ryan, and I we helped comfort her as she drifted off into a forever sleep. Dr. George and the staff of Lap of Love were so very comforting and helpful in guiding us through Chloe's last couple hours. I am absolutely certain that she is chasing squirrels and rabbits with Alex and Haley (her brother and sister), and barking at every bird larger than a sparrow she sees. Our hearts and house will have an emptiness as Fall turns to Winter and Winter turns to Spring. Life will go on and we are better people for having had the privilege to be her humans. Traditionally when a friend loses a dog I share the video of Jimmy Stewart's story about "A Dog named Beau" so below is the link to a YouTube video of Mr. Stewart's appearance on The Tonight Show with Johnny Carson.

Good bye sweet girl, go run and play ...... Free dog Chloe.

Max
4/29/2006 - 10/19/2020Max was our sweet boy, giver of kisses and barker extraordinaire, protector, brother to Samantha, Spencer, Simon, Sadie and Emma. We miss you, and you will always have a piece of our hearts. Run free and say hi to Simon for us!Judy BellackSt Pete, FloridaOctober 20, 2020
Sunny
4/22/2003 - 10/19/2020We are completely broken hearted that we said goodbye to our sweet Sunny today. After a four-month battle with oral cancer, he died peacefully at home with us by his side. For 17 years, Sunny was our baby boy. My husband Daniel and I never had kids and perhaps never will, but several months after we married, Sunny became ours. The sweet, gentle red tabby with a penchant for leg rubs and cooked chicken will forever live on in our hearts.Jennifer AshtonImperial, MissouriOctober 20, 2020

Stitch
12/19/2003 - 10/19/2020My prayer for you-

O Lord our God, we come before You this day in sadness. Stitch, who brought us so much joy in life, has now died. Stitch’s happy times in our family’s embrace have come to an end. We miss Stitch already.

Help us, to remember the good times with Stitch. Remind us to rejoice in the happy times he brought to our home. Let us be thankful for the good life we were blessed to give to him.

We are grateful to You, God, for creating Stitch for entrusting him to our care, and for sustaining him in our love for a measure of time. We understand that all lives must die. We knew that this day would come. And yet, O God, we would have wanted one more day of play, one more evening of love with Stitch.

O God, as we have taken care of Stitch in life, we ask that You watch over him in death. You entrusted Stitch to our care; now, we give him back to You. May Stitch find a happy new home in Your loving embrace.

Scooby
10/10/2020Scooby came to us in 2005, in North Carolina where we found her at the animal shelter. She was already a mother, at the age of about one and a half years, and she immediately adopted us and taught us to be good pet parents and, later, good parents. She taught us how to know when she needed to go outside. She taught us what walks were. She taught us what real listening was. She taught us to keep a regular schedule: She would wake us up every day at 5 am, would insist on dinner at 5 pm sharp, and she would tell us to go to bed at 10 o'clock. She protected us from mice in the house, rats and squirrels in the backyard, and delivery and repairpersons of all types. She would often try to help with the dishes. Whenever someone spilled food, she would try to clean the floor. And she taught us the joy of belly rubs and of tug-of-war.

She was initially suspicious of our human children, and our other beagle, Homer, but then she adopted them as well and displayed affection for them often. Our extended family often joked that she was a big sister, but the truth was Scooby really was very protective of all of us, more like a furry little mother.

Scooby accompanied us from North Carolina, to California, to Rhode Island, and to Kansas City. She loved road trips, often looking out the window. She loved walking, exploring, smelling new smells, rawhide bones, and food, and more food. She once sneaked a whole package of hamburger buns off of Aunt Danna's table and then was upset that we wouldn't feed her dinner that day, even though her little belly was so swollen that it looked painful. Her little sad eyes could fool people into thinking we didn't feed her enough, right after she had just been fed.

When we were sick, Scooby could tell; and she offered comfort. When we were well, she offered affection. She was loving, but seldom needy.

We had about 15 good years with Scooby. And her illness, when it came, was too sudden. There was no real time for goodbye. But that's often how it is with the ones we love. Even in her passing, Scooby was teaching us to appreciate the everyday moments with our loved ones.

Scooby will always be family. The memories we made together will always be a part of us. We were lucky to have her as long as we did. And we're better people for having had her in our lives.

Scooby, we miss you.

Missy
11/26/2005 - 9/14/2019Our Missy, it's taken over 13 months to write our memorial for you, not at all out of selfishness, but out of sadness and tears of having to let you go. You were our everything and everything we could have wished for in a dog, best friend and companion. Even though you were never officially trained as a "Service Dog" you were always right there by my side whenever needed and often when not, you always knew when something just wasn't quite right with me. You were our travel companion and went everywhere we went. You moved 8 times with us during our military moves and never had problems with that. You LOVED the beaches and the snow and it ALWAYS MADE you so happy and we loved to see you SO HAPPY!! You were always there for us no matter what! We love you and miss you Missy now and always!!Shawn HerzogLexington, South CarolinaOctober 19, 2020
