Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Maggie
11/5/2001 - 7/27/2013Blessed are those who knew the love of my sweet Maggie. Maggie was born on November 5th, 2001 in Asheboro, North Carolina. She was an enthusiastic dog, full of human-like personality, who enjoyed a happy life surrounded by many friends and family who loved and spoiled her as much as she did them. Counting licks was at times a competition to see who she loved more! She had the ability to show compassion in times of need and brought joy into our lives on daily basis. She learned to say “I love you” and even when I asked “who’s your Mommy!?” she answered me with a loud bark! She was great at high fives and even high tens. In fact, she could really jump high, especially if the reward was a stick or a tasty treat. Other favorite pastimes of Maggie’s were snuggling with her Leroy Bunny (who was the only stuffed animal she didn’t chew up!), going for car rides with the windows all the way down, helping Mommy keep the kitchen floor clean- when I said “oops!” it was her clue to turn on her doggy vacuum, swimming in the lake or ocean, catching buggies who dare come near her, going for long walks and runs, visiting the horses down the country road, exploring nature and the mountains, playing fetch with a ball- especially a squeaky one, cuddling on the couch with Mommy, MooMoo sandwiches, laying in the warmth of the sunlight coming through a window, capturing & shaking balloons, licking the remains from a peanut butter jar (even if it meant getting her nose stuck inside!), ear & belly rubs, and who could forget by far one of her most favorites----> opening Christmas presents! Yes- she was quite the talented dog!

My Maggie Moo’s always had the curiosity of a cat, from 8 weeks old and drinking water out from under the Christmas tree through the final days of her life when she decided even with painful legs (from bone cancer) that she would wander off around the neighborhood to give her Mommy quite the scare. She was “my favorite” and one of the best dogs ever, even despite her love of nature and not listening once the call of the wild called to her! Yes, she loved being outside, which is why there was no question about where to let her take the final breaths of life. We laid Maggie to rest out back behind our house while she was surrounded by her Mommy, Daddy, loving friends and favorite pet sitter. I’m so thankful for Dana at Lap of Love; I couldn’t imagine having said goodbye to my precious girl any other way. And most importantly, Maggie wouldn’t have either and that is how she knew we loved her to the very end.

Memories of my sweet Mags will be cherished forever and she will always live in my heart until that glorious day when I will get to hug her again on the Rainbow Bridge. I love you bubba and think about you every day. You truly are my favorite! 

Casey
11/28/1998 - 8/18/2013Casey came into our lives one January day 14 ½ years ago. He was precious, the runt of the litter. Our first interactions with him were watching him follow around the owner grunting for her attention. We picked him out to be a part of our family, but my parents and I had no idea how much we would grow to love that little puppy. He fast became a huge part of our lives and we cherished every minute. He gave the best kisses and cuddles and enjoyed falling asleep in our laps and on our chests. Yet, he was clearly the alpha of our pack and would bark to keep us in line. He had a unique personality and clear ideas about what he wanted and when he wanted it. All of these traits made us love him all the more. Casey loved life. He especially loved sitting on the front porch of our beach house keeping an eye on the people and animals that passed by while the wind blew through his hair. He loved getting presents and often thought every bag that we brought in the house was for him and he was right most of the time. We loved spoiling him. However, he is the one that truly spoiled us. He brought more joy to our lives than we thought possible and our hearts and spirits are better because of Casey. We miss him every day and try to find comfort in the many, many memories we have together and in the knowledge that we will get to cuddle and kiss him again one day in heaven.Lori HackneyDurham, North CarolinaAugust 21, 2013
