Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
12/19/2016 - 12/6/2016In loving memory of our dear Bodie. Always full of love for everybody he met. He loved to go for walks, swim and play. He has 2 brothers, Kipper and Dakota who are missing him. His tail was always wagging up until his final moments. We love you and will always be thinking of you.John LennonSmithtown, New YorkDecember 8, 2016
9/21/2001 - 12/6/2016To my dearest Bridgett,

You were always my best girl, my heart, my soul dog. You gave me your entire heart and were there through everything; good times, bad times, fun times, sad times. You were so full of life. You were always tricky and quirky, but I hope you know that you were so worth it. I wouldn't have traded you for the whole world. You were my shadow, always by my side (remember how I always called you my little tumor?). You would follow me up the stairs at night, until you couldn't. You would jump up on the couch to be with me, until you couldn't. You would go outside and run around like crazy, until you couldn't. You would play with your brother and chew on your favorite bones, until you couldn't. You were always beautiful and stayed beautiful until the end. Even though you couldn't eat solid food, your back curved so much that you could barely walk at all, you couldn't control where you went to the bathroom and you no longer knew who we or you were. Finally, almost overnight, your spark was gone. Even your brother Chili knew. He wouldn't leave your side, and neither did we (but I'm not sure how much you noticed, but just know you were never alone your last days). You gave me SO much over our 9 years together, it was time for me to give you one thing back. I hope I made the right decision for you. I hope you are wild and free and prancing around somewhere. I hope you know how much you are loved and missed. You will NEVER be forgotten. I love and miss you so much. I would give anything in the world just to pet you again. You will be forever loved and never forgotten.
Until we see each other again,
Your dearest mom

12/5/2016Kodiak, our beloved family member took his walk on the rainbow bridge yesterday. We will miss his conversational barks, his intense loyalty, friendship and his love for his family. He had a lust for life and a will to live that was insatiable. We are so sorry he had to leave us but his presence in our home will be remembered fondly and with much love.
Play in Peace my Buddy! Run Kodiak Run!

12/5/2016I am so heartbroken without you my darling Shaddie. Thankyou for always sharing "your" hotdog with me at the horse shows you accompanied me too. I will never stop loving you and pray I will see you again. My life is so sad without you here. You were the best dog and friend anyone could ever hope to have. When we adopted you, it was us that you rescued.Lynn BatesSpeedway, IndianaDecember 7, 2016

12/5/2016Just wanted to acknowledge the service Lap of Love and Dr Lauren in ATL did for us. We got a fatal diagnosis from SweetPea's Vet so I changed Doctors to Lap of Love. After an in-home evaluation we decided hospice was best and the cat lived another 1.5 years on renal food. No invasive anything. Dr Lauren emailed and phoned to check in and we had one other house visit. We were waiting for the cat to give us a sign and she did. Dr Lauren was out in 2 hours and did everything we had already been prepared for through her counsel. She died with us at home in the place she chose. It's never easy as everyone on this site knows but we are so grateful to have the in home care we needed.Bill GilmoreAtlanta, GeorgiaDecember 6, 2016

12/3/2016I just want to say what a meaningful gathering we had at our home, and how thankful I am to Lap of Love and Dr. Laura. Our Elliot was made comfortable, and we had plenty time to share memories, laugh & cry. I will miss my Elliot, but memories of him will always be in my heart.Cheryl WalkerLivonia, MichiganDecember 5, 2016
8/10/2006 - 12/3/2016We fell in love with Mia the moment we laid eyes on her. She was being fostered by family members who also owned a vizsla, and they knew she would be the perfect pet for us. She joined our family just before she turned 2, and lived 8 wonderful, love-filled years with us.

Whether she was chasing squirrels or sneaking scraps of food in the kitchen, she was always nearby, "velcroed" to us. Mia loved visiting family, especially at Rocky Creek Ranch in Statesville, NC, where she shared many fun hours of exploration with her "cousin" dogs, Diego and Aida.

Our hearts break now as we try to adjust to life without her sweet face and happy paws tapping across our wood floors. Our house is very quiet without her here. It will take a long time to adjust to not seeing or hearing her every day. Mia will live eternally in our hearts, memories and dreams each night as we lay down to sleep.
