Mia
3/11/2014 - 10/11/2016I love you Mia. I miss you everyday; you were such a sweet little girl and I am so sorry I couldn't save you. I honestly didn't think it was you who got hit by that car. I was right there on my way to my new job, when the women were draping the towel over the box. I want you to know that I did pull over to see I everything was okay, but when I saw the time, I had to be at work in 10 minutes and they seemed to have everything under control. I never guessed it was you and if I would have arrived a few minutes earlier I would have known because I would have seen you. Only if would have rolled down my window, I could have been there for you and I am so sorry. I failed. I failed to protect you as I promised and I will never forgive myself for that. Baby Mia, please forgive me. I love you and you will always be in my heart and love never dies. <3Gabriella GangalaParsippany, New JerseyOctober 1, 2017

Cosmo
Cosmo was such an amazing pet to my family. She was the sweetest and so tolerable of our son. She was a part of our family for 14 years. I went to see her at the pound in Virginia when I was told she was there the longest and was running out of time to find a home. Their were no interests in this sweet dog. I was amazed because she was one of a kind. I was not able to walk away from her so I applied for her. Her, my 6 month old pup bailey, my boyfriend at the time (later became my husband) and I shared a little 600 square foot apartment. All four of us shared a full size bed. Cosmo and Bailey were soul sisters. They loved each other. When Bailey passed away Cosmo was never the same. Now the two of them get to run together in heaven.Nikki StockerYork, PennsylvaniaOctober 1, 2017
Nana
9/15/2005 - 9/29/2017My Nana gained her angel wings and crossed over to the rainbow bridge at 2pm. I never knew how much you can love a dog like I loved Nana. She was my everything and my heart is broken into pieces. I've never cried as much as I cried in the last few days but I already let her suffer long enough. I have no regrets helping her pass. My only regret is I didn't do it sooner.

I love you so much Nana. I miss you. I miss your sass, wiggle butt, your smell, your warmth, and your companionship. You were so loved by so many. We are all going to miss you (maybe not the mailman) and can't wait to see you in heaven again. Meet me at the gates like you greeted me from work everyday. I look forward to the day I can squeeze you and kiss you forever.

Love your mom, Cathy, grandma, and your brother, Mumu.

Kaia
9/13/2003 - 9/29/2017Kaia was the sweetest, most loving and loyal best friend anyone could ask for. She loved us unconditionally , and I'll never forget her. She was truly my biggest fan, and I'll miss her forever, but will also never forget our favorite place,the beach, and all the love we shared. She is with my dad now, so I know she's in the best of hands because he also loved her with all his heart and soul💕💙Nancy MorigeratoRevere, MassachusettsSeptember 30, 2017
Briget
9/11/2003 - 9/28/2017Briget was the sweetest little girl you would ever want to meet as well as her Sister GiGi . Everyone that has come in contact with them their groomers, their dog sitter, friends, even total strangers would make a point to say they are 2 little sweethearts.
Briget loved her ball so so much all the way to the end! The picture was taken only 4 days before her passing.

Briget was the world to me and she will be missed way more than anyone would ever know ! I've called them my 911 babies not the same year but the same month and day. I always felt that made them extra special !

I guess I will always question a bit some of the hard decisions that I had to make but I am totally confident that I did spare Briget any additional suffering and the eventual severe pain associated with the act of dieing that Dr. Erin so graciously reminded me of.

I knew I was not going to be able to take Briget to my Vet for this. I decided to let it happen at home where she would be where she loved to be instead but I was very concerned with how that would go and after sitting constantly by her side for her last 2 days of not eating and drinking and watching her suffer I questioned my decision. I decided to read as much as I could on the subject which eventually luckily led me to Dr. Erin of Lap of Love just in the nick of time.

Briget passed on so peacefully, not even a flinch at the hands of this so special Woman Dr. Erin. Thanks so so much !!!

PEOPLE SPREAD THE WORD OF DR. ERIN AND LAP OF LOVE !!!
I didn't know anything like this existed , no one I know knew , but everyone I know will now know!
Dr.Erin and Lap of Loves phone # is now saved in my phone and I know I will need her again in the near future for GiGi sadly but Dr. Erin will be the first # that I will dial !!!!

GODSPEED DR.ERIN !
GODSPEED AND REST IN PEACE MY DEAR BRIGET !

Hurley
1/16/2004 - 9/26/2017Hurley was the best dog (friend and brother) our family could have ever hoped for. He brought so much love and happiness to our home. Hurley's passing has left a huge hole in our hearts and a stifling silence in our home. He will be remembered for making all the lives he touched better. He will be forever missed and loved. We are so thankful for the nearly 14 years of loving, playful, and devoted companionship he gave to all of us. We love you HURLEY BOY!!!Scott PanfilSan Diego, CaliforniaSeptember 30, 2017
Cody
10/17/2011 - 9/28/2017On the morning of 9/28/17,a beautiful blue sky day with temperatures in the mid-70's, you my Cody Coco Bear peacefully crossed over rainbow bridge. God has you now and you are being embraced in His love, love like no other; no longer in pain and running free.

You were such an amazing dog...your smile, your calm demeanor, your kisses and cuddles, so many wonderful experiences and memories with you. I miss you so much, my heart is crushed, but I'm so grateful I got the honor of sharing the last years of your life with you. Thank you for your unconditional love and loyalty and for bringing so much joy to my life. You will ALWAYS be in my heart and I know I will see you again someday, my handsome boy. I love you!

Bear
3/27/2003 - 9/28/2017The Servant and the Hero:
What is a servant?
According to the dictionary a servant is:
A devoted and helpful follower or supporter.

Are servants and heroes the same?
Again according to the dictionary a hero is:
A person who is admired or identified for courage, outstanding achievements or noble qualities.

Not completely the same but there are some similar qualities.
A servant just does what he or she is supposed to do and a hero does what he or she wants to do to become helpful in many ways from doctors to military people whom all deserve a big salute!
God made both for many purposes but he also gave us another type of being that serves mankind as both a servant and a hero.
Dogs.
Above all other animals, dogs stand out from every other creature.
God created dogs to be both the servant and the hero & they perform both duties far beyond any other creature in the world.
Yes, you can train a dolphin or monkey to do something but they expect some kind of a reward.
A dog on the other hand can be yelled at or punished for something & he or she immediately starts thinking “how can I do better to serve my master”?
They can be as equal a hero.
Dogs are by no means equal to or above mankind but they are servants and heroes sometimes above some people.
A dog will bark and scare off an intruder, lay back down and go back to sleep and think nothing of it.
If it were mankind, he or she would call the police, expect to be on the 6 o-clock news and need counseling!

Our dog, Bear fits the servant and the hero category more than most people.
Bear has been the most loyal, protective and serving dog we’ve ever known.
She has exceeded ALL of her responsibilities and hardly ever complained (unless it was too hot outside).
We thank God for bringing Bear into our lives and we could not have asked for a better loving animal.
She is our hero and servant protecting us and our home way beyond what we know.
She’s spent many days and nights out on patrol doing exactly what she was created to do.
And now all we can do is give a Salute to her for the great hero she was and say the words we so long to hear someday from our Master:
“Job well done good and faithful servant”!
We will certainly miss our hero and faithful servant!
Our sweet dog Bear – March 27, 2003 to September 28, 2017 RIP

Artemis
4/12/2003 - 9/25/2017Mark Doty, in Dog Years, writes, "The capacity for despair is probably equivalent to the ability to experience joy; such depths in the self are required in order to make possible the mounting of the heights." Loving Artemis and having her sweet companionship for fourteen-a-half years brought the heights. Losing her: the depths. We will never forget the joy she brought--just by being herself.Melissa G.Merion Station, PennsylvaniaSeptember 29, 2017
