Bailey
Bailey was my sweet baby who was always loving, sweet and affectionate. She was the Light of my Life. I will forever miss her kisses and snuggles. I rescued Bailey, but actually she rescued me. R.I.P. my Sweet Baby.Bailey MonacelliMacomb, MichiganFebruary 11, 2016
Emily
12/14/1998 - 2/7/2016I found my beautiful Emily at a cat show and she lived with me for 17 wonderful years. Emily was named after the poet, Emily Dickenson. She was quiet and gentle. During the day she was usually in the sunroom enjoying the warmth of the sun. At night she slept pressed up next to me. She had been amazingly healthy throughout her life but during her last days she was feeling poorly so I know it was the right time for her to leave this earth and go to “The land beyond beyond...the world past hope and fear.” I’m grateful to Lap of Love and Dr. Nora for making her passing as pain-free as possible for her and for me as well as for Emily's companions: Willoughby, Cammie, Rowan, Kyra and Winthrop.Wanda HoofnagleHerndon, VirginiaFebruary 11, 2016
Lulu
10/30/2016 - 2/8/2016Our sweet Lulu passed away peacefully on our bed while being petted and brushed. I got Lu from the spca on October 31, 2007. She was two years old. I remember picking her up and loving her bunny fur and loving that she purred so hard on my lap that she squeaked. She was with me through all my big life events... being single, dating, moving states, married, and having a baby. She was my constant companion in my changing life. Lulu loved being brushed. Her purr-squeak was in full effect when she was being brushed. I'm so grateful for Lap of Love coming to our home and putting her to sleep peacefully while she was on her favorite blanket on our bed. They were absolutely amazing during such a hard time. Knowing her ashes will be spread in a butterfly garden where she can chase butterflies and lay in limitless sun puddles brings us so much comfort. Rest in peace sweet Lulu. Enjoy your sun puddles!Emily DonohueClearwater, FloridaFebruary 10, 2016

Martini
1/23/2000 - 1/25/2016I lost my dear companion Martini on Monday the 25th at the age of 16. My little Burmese was definitely a personality to be reckoned with! She was the queen of the castle, my morning alarm clock (and evening, and middle of night...), my TV snuggle buddy, my town crier, my chair stealer, my property protector, my feet warmer under the bed covers, and my neck wrap so I wouldn't get cold in the middle of the night. She was my child, my "eternial two year old" and my little "Monkey".
We had been through so much together... being sick at the same time (that was not fun!), a divorce and moving to South Florida, "Tini's Big Adventure" (3 days missing while her mommy walked the streets for 3 days straight worried out of her mind!) and to have her last few years in a cozy condo for two where she sunbathed in the afternoons sitting on the sofa cushions. She was a very talkative and interactive feline and we would have so many conversations throughout the years.
When the heart wrenching time came after weeks of fighting advanced kidney failure, I decided to have Lap of Love help me with her passing in our home together. As much as I did not want to let her go, I helped my beloved cross over to a restful place and I am comforted that she is no longer in any discomfort. Her mommy loves her so very much and will miss her beyond what words can attempt to describe. I am so privileged that she chose me as her guardian and that I was able to do right by her throughout her life and for her death. For now, I just need to remember to breathe because this pain is unbearable. I love you Martini, you are in my heart forever.

Jake "Handsome Tiger"
6/3/2004 - 2/7/2016Oh where to begin - handsome, gallant, courageous - so very courageous, strong, amazing, loving, sweet, so highly intelligent and intuitive - cannot begin to describe my Jake. A Handsome Tiger that never once took a wrong turn - what an astounding blessing to have been allowed to share the past 11 1/2 years of life with this beautiful creature - I am so in love and so heartbroken at the same time there is no relief in sight - but he is worth every second of heartache, every tear that I have.Stephanie RamosRiverside, CaliforniaFebruary 9, 2016
Angel
7/1/1999 - 2/8/2016We had sixteen love and joy filled years with our little adoptee! She came to us from the Anti-Cruelty society when she was just 12 weeks old. I asked my eldest daughter, who was about five at the time, what the puppy's name should be; she chose the name "Angel" right away! The name fit in every way. Angel was great with people and other animals, and I can't tell you how many times people would smile at her on our walks, or stop me to tell me how sweet she looked. One couple even remarked that she had an amazing "aura". :-) She really did, and I can still feel it in her absence.

Angel was with us as my children grew (they are now 17 and 21). She was there for the girls' graduations, my divorce, my attainment of tenure at my teaching position, my purchase of my home, and through many other joys and tribulations. My eldest daughter came home from Colorado a week early to make sure she could say goodbye, and several of my closest friends also came over to say their goodbyes to my sweet, furry girl. She was much loved, and she will be greatly missed!

Killer
4/29/2001 - 2/7/2016Killer was a beautiful, special dog that I had the opportunity to love and cherish for 10 years. She was not a pet, but a family member. With broken hearts, we had to let her go and a piece of our hearts went with her. I will forever cherish the time that we had with her and the love and laughter that she brought into our lives. I will miss her greatly but I know that she is pain free, playing and waiting until we are together again.Margie ManwellSimi Valley, CaliforniaFebruary 9, 2016
Jackson (jack) Montgomery Hughes
10/6/2016 - 2/5/2016To my little Jack potato,

Daniel, Bailey and I miss you terribly. You were the best little pup an owner could have. Well, at least you won't have to be scared by the terrible thunder and fireworks anymore. Thank you for being there for me during vet school, my road companion up and down I-10 (Houston to Tuskegee), and during residency at Penn State and here at NIH. I will always remember you running through the corn fields in PA and disappearing as I called you over and over to please come back. I thought I had lost you many times but you always came back to us. Thank you for being so gentle with little Eli so he could pet you and helping Luna come out of her shell. My grandmother still remembers your stealing my Aunt Margie's bacon, sandwich and anything else right off her plate! You were so sneaky! Priscilla and I remembered (but still can't figure out) how you were able to steal a slice of cake that had foil over it. Our Christmas Card will never be the same without you.

Love you always,

Tesa, Daniel and Bailey

Ollie
2/6/2016Ollie was a 13 year old Maltese that we adopted when he was just 10 weeks old. He was not a perfect dog. He had bowlegs, crooked teeth, and a few other imperfections. But he was our dog and a great dog. He provided unconditional love to our family. He was always there for us. He will be missed forever.Joe GoldbergWheaton, IllinoisFebruary 8, 2016
