Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
9/19/2006 - 12/9/2014It is with heavy heart tonight that I write this. We had our vet (Dr Juliana Lyles, DVM) from the Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice and In Home Euthanasia come to the house tonight as we had to put our Howie boy down. He was one of the sweetest boys you would ever know. I don’t think he had a mean bone in his body.
He started to have problems with all his legs about 2 months ago so we took him to the vet. We were told that he had a brain tumor and that he would only get worse. Well, he got to the point that he could not control any of his legs, and was not able to walk. He is a big boy so his constant falling was hard on him. He is just over 8 years old so this was a very hard decision to make, but one that had to be done.
I can’t believe our Howie is gone. I will miss his goofy antics, his loving kisses, and his love for everyone. He was such a sweet boy, who will now run free without falling, over that Rainbow Bridge.
I wish our fur babies could be with us forever. This is so damn hard, not only for us but for our other dogs. Raven will be lost, Howie was her best buddy. They truly loved being together.
I could go on and on but I will leave it as it is. Run free our sweet Toivo’s Deal or No Deal (Howie).. You will forever and always be a part of our hearts.
Thank you, Dr Juliana Lyles, DVM for being there again for us. You have been with us now with Boomer, Cleo and now Howie. Your care and understanding is beyond what we could ask for.

6/1/2000 - 12/8/2014I said goodbye to my little black spaniel yesterday, and I am heartbroken. I miss her so much and I would give anything to have her back again. I know she was so sick, but I didn't realize how she was woven into my entire existence. She was my princess, angel, sweet baby girl and I will always look for her....everywhere....until we meet again.Mary Beth CogswellCharlotte, North CarolinaDecember 9, 2014

12/5/2014I was so thankful to have Dr. Christine in my home last Friday. I had my cat Max for over 17 years and he was a beloved member of our of family. He was my first boy! He passed away in my arms on our couch and was so comfortable at home. I wouldn't have done this any other way. Dr Christine was amazing and helped me through such a hard time. Thank you Lap of Love for providing this service for our four legged family members. We already miss Max so much and are so thankful for our many years with him.Susan OswaldAlexandria, VirginiaDecember 8, 2014
11/11/2004 - 12/3/2014To our beloved Chasie,

You have shown us nothing but unconditional love. Every time we walked in or out the door you would be the first and last to greet us. You have already left a big hole in our hearts, for nothing will replace the love you have given us. We miss your beautiful huge boba eyes, your lovely smile. We miss your different stages of fluffiness and your joyful spirit. We are just thankful you are now resting, that there is no more pain.

Lady Feedom Gadler
2/13/2003 - 11/28/2014Our beautiful daughter Lady was called home to the Rainbow Bridge on Friday November 28th 2014. She was at home surounded by her family & friends. True to her nature even after going through all of the medical tests and procedures the preceeding week, she still jumped out of the car when we brought her home. Tail wagging a mile a minute, she played briefly with her kong, gave everyone kisses, ate a big plate of ham made by her uncle Bubba & begged for more, snagged a few treats & then posed for pictures. When it was time, everyone left the house & took Lady's little sister Maranna to the playground. Lady's mommy & I sat on the floor with Dr. Melanie Cohen from Lap of Love & we held her tight, we cried, we kissed her & she drifted off to sleep. After she passed, we continued to hold on to her & cry. Our beautiful Fur Baby was gone & now we have to heal. For her sake, for her sister's sake & for ours. We are very thankful to Lap of Love & to Dr, Melanie Cohen for guiding is through this difficult time.
