Shelby
9/1/2004 - 12/7/2015Shelby was a great watchdog and was always at the door to greet me when I came home from work. I always felt safe in my house with Shelby around. She was my husband's dog and after my husband passed almost 4 years ago, Shelby would look for him everyday. it is comforting to know that they have been reunited once more. She loved to play catch with tennis balls and loved to carry her basketball around the yard. She was the "leader of the pack" with my other dogs and they are lost without her. I will miss Shelby every day and I am so thankful I found Lap of Love to make her passing so peaceful. Goodbye for now my Shelby girl. I know you are in heaven with your papa and you are both running and playing ball together.Judi ErhardtElma, New YorkDecember 9, 2015
Chewie
5/1/1997 - 11/20/2015Thank you for coming to live with me. I am sorry I made the milk to hot for you one night. You were so little.
Thank you for being so nice to Awesome.
Thank you for being a gentleman to PJ, Twister, Lollipop and Mo. I know you missed Awesome and it’s been hard living with Mo.
Thank you for not falling out of the 3rd story window that day you popped the screen out.
Thank you for making me laugh each time you carried the foam insulation around the apartment.
Thank you for making me laugh when I would find your bag of treats in the closet, empty and with a hole chewed in the bottom.
Thank you for making me laugh the day you tried to take the bag of catnip out of my hands by jumping up and grabbing it.
Thank you for chasing cranberries like a maniac and making me laugh.
Thank you for chasing the laser pointer like a maniac and making me laugh.
Thank you for being so cute and for being a good sport about letting me say to you, you are “nothing but a space alien dressed up in a cheap fur coat”. I hope you know you are movie star handsome and were given the middle name of Two Socks because you look like the wolf in the movie Dances with Wolves.
Thank you for letting me watch you jump on the balcony railing to sit and watch birds go by. Thanks for not falling off of the railing the day you stood up on your back legs and nearly caught a bird flying overhead.
Thank you for not trying to jump from the balcony railing on to the roof. I know you were thinking about it.
Thank you for making me laugh as Awesome ran after you and you turned a somersault just as Awesome ran over you. It was great how you would wrap your front legs around him turn the chase into a tumbling match. That was great fun.
Thank you for your unique way of telling me you were hungry by banging your bowl on the floor. It made quite a racket and was effective.
It’s okay that you used to scoot the dishes off of the counter top so they would break on the floor. I didn’t really need those dishes anyway.
It’s okay that you scooted the can of tuna off of the counter top while I was on the floor talking to Awesome. It didn’t hurt my head all that bad, really.
Thanks for having such good table manners and joining me for meals. It was a pleasure sharing my food with you. Also it was a pleasure watching you scoop the foamed milk off of the cappuccinos and lapping it up off of your paw.
Thank you for bringing me a dried leaf one Fall day. Also, I did appreciate the locusts. I am sorry I didn’t display my pleasure all that much.
I want to tell you that you actually did catch every snow flake you went after. But, they melted before you could see them in your paws. You were very graceful in catching them as they fell and I loved watching you.
Thank you for sleeping at my legs and feet for 18 years. You kept my feet warm. Thank you for staying up with me when I had hot flashes at night. I’ll bet you were glad when I finally got some medication for them and we both started getting some sleep again.
It’s okay that you hid with Awesome whenever the raccoons ran across the roof the spring they moved into the attic. The night the iced tree branches blew across the roof you both thought the raccoons were back and took cover. I thought they were back, too. It was nice that you waited by the door for me while I was outside trying to see them.
I know you weren’t crazy about Twister, but he did set an example for you by drinking out of the toilet. A habit you adopted for many years. I was amazed to find you one day sitting on the toilet trying to flush it. You are so smart and I am happy you didn’t have thumbs. I would have had to find a daycare for you if you did.
I had a lot of fun this spring with you Chewie. While Chewy Garcia was running for mayor in Chicago, I loved calling you “The Mayor”. I remember waking up the day after the election and hearing that Rahm Emanuel had defeated Chewy Garcia. I had to break the news to you that you weren’t “The Mayor” after all but you took it in good stride.
I am sorry for all of the times I made you so mad that you were compelled to bite me. I never really understood why you bit me, but it doesn’t matter now. Chewie, I am so sad to say good bye to you. I wish there was something that I could do to bring your health back. There will never be another one like you. I love you and thank you for being you. I hope you were happy here and had a good life. God bless you and keep you Chewie. I love you.

Blue
3/31/1995 - 12/6/2015My friend, Blue, was a beautiful black cat. He passed peacefully at home thanks to Dr Annie and her compassionate care. It was an answered prayer that he did not suffer. My last memory is of him being placed in a basket with a soft purple blanket. He was a cherished member of our family for 20yrs. Thank you Dr Annie for making a sad time into a beautiful goodbye.Mary NewhouseOrlando, FloridaDecember 9, 2015
Debo
8/21/2001 - 12/5/2015Debo - A forcefully affectionate dog with a pure soul who never had an enemy and lived life to the fullest. Remembering your big head hanging out of my car window, with the wind filling your cheeks will forever be one of my happiest memories. You were with me through some of the most challenging times in my life. I will miss you dearly buddy, and hope to see you one day running to me full throttle with your back legs out-running your front ... Somewhere over the Rainbow. <3Sharon DeliaColumbia, South CarolinaDecember 9, 2015
Emmett
6/2/2003 - 12/2/2015Emmett was such a sweet, snuggly, loving kitty. I'm so grateful for the 12 1/2 years we had together. Thank you for being such a wonderful companion.Cherie CormierPlymouth, MassachusettsDecember 9, 2015
Audrey
11/25/2015We think of Audrey as our most innocent girl. She had troubles but she never let them stop her. She came to us as a "leftover". Someone never came to the vet to pick her up after dropping her off for care. There was question of "shaken kitty syndrome" but all we knew was what we saw, a loving, forgiving, happy 8-10 mo old not sure when she was born) girl who couldn't stop herself from running into doors at full speed or falling off chairs and landing on her back or side without being able to land on her feet and usually miscalculating how high she had to jump to get on a chair and overshooting. Then came the seizures but only when she was asleep. Then came neurology evaluation, multiple medications tried until we settled on an old tried but true tablet twice a day. She was a trouper about taking her meds. But, sometimes the seizure was so strong, she would become incontinent. Well, then came the pads all over her special sleeping places because she sure wasn't going anywhere and the pads were washable so, no question on that. Audrey did not go outside only showed passing interest in the outside by looking out the windows. She did get out by accident a few times but she was retrieved quickly. Audrey, my husband, our former feral kitty Mama and I moved back down to NC in 2011 from the DC area. Mama and Audrey tolerated each other but were never true sisters by any means. Audrey slept with me at the head of the bed on her "pee pads" every night. She had kitty stairs to climb up to get on the bed. Once she had her first seizure of the night, I would wake her and she would go to one of her special "pee pad" nests that she loved. We received the diagnosis of lymphoma and adenocarcinoma about 3 weeks before Thanksgiving.................................................Kay BurkeCarrboro, North CarolinaDecember 8, 2015
Lilly
10/28/1998 - 12/2/2015Tiger Lilly came to us as a baby kitty when someone left her at our front door after her mother had been hit by a car. She blessed us for 17 years with her loud motor purring any time you even looked at her. She slept right next to my pillow in the last few years. I saw her sweet tabby face every morning when I opened my eyes and every night before closing them. The last morning, waiting for the Vet, knowing it was her time, she licked the tears from my face, her eyes said she wanted to stay, but her little body couldn't sustain her any longer. She was a once in a lifetime kitty. Sweet Lilly, we will forever be a part of the tapestry of each others' lives. And we will be together again one day. But now, you have a new body, running in a field of flowers, with the sun to warm you. Til then, I will miss you and your sweet sandpaper kisses.Lisa ParkerApopka, FloridaDecember 8, 2015
Maddie
12/1/2006 - 12/4/2015Maddie was a beautiful sweet girl, thank you for your kind and compassionate care, she deserved the best.Sandy KeenanHanover, MassachusettsDecember 7, 2015
