Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
1/1/2001 - 11/14/2015This past Saturday, November 14th, I had to say good-bye to my beautiful, wonderful and amazing Dalmatian, Hefner. I knew for a while that the time was coming and it was a moment that I faced with both heartfelt anguish and consuming dread. I must thank Dr. Manetta LaVergne and the staff of Lap of Love for their kindness, understanding, patience and empathy and for helping me, do the right thing for my beloved friend. Thank you, Dr. LaVergne for helping Hefner to cross over the “Rainbow Bridge” with love and kindness.

Hefner is home now. They brought him back to me in a pretty little wooden box with a decorative carving on top. All in all, it is very nice. But I refuse to regard it as what it is, an urn. To me it is a Jewel Box! It holds my diamond, my most cherished possession, my exquisite, funny, dear and beloved friend. Welcome home, baby. Daddy loves you and misses you something awful, Heffie.

11/15/2015Let's just say this, you were one-of-a-kind! You did not like everyone but then again you loved us all. Sometimes we all could pet you but sometimes you only would let me. It was almost like a game you would play with us and you wanted to be the smallest boss in the house. We would laugh about it. When I got onto Jamie with a certain tone you would grab his britches and shake it you knew when I was upset and you would chase Jamie outside in the yard. Over the 14 years we had you you really gave us a lot of love and laughs with your one-of-a-kind personality you were loved and it will be missed. It's hard to put 14 years down on paper. Your family of furry friends miss you also Shelby, Macy and Brocksana. You are now at the rainbow bridge you're suffering is over. Goodbye little fella eat all the chicken and rice you want! We love you!!Jennifer HitchcockGrovetown, GeorgiaNovember 17, 2015
9/1/1999 - 11/8/2015It's been a week now since we said goodbye to our little girl, Allie. She left a huge hole in our hearts and in our lives. Allie was a gorgeous Belgium Shepherd Tervuren with a stunning coat and absolutely adorable personality. She worshiped my husband and would follow him wherever he went. She truly was daddy's shadow and would have happily gone to work with him if she could. Allie was just a very special soul - joyful, kind, sweet, gentle but still fiercely protective, very well behaved, independent, stubborn, and above all loving. Everybody who've ever met her loved her. She gave us so much love. We are grateful for all the years and all the love she shared with us. We almost lost her to a stroke when she was 7 so every subsequent year we shared was a gift and a blessing. Thanks to the acupuncture and wonderful Dr Freeman, the last two your of her life were made a lot easier. She retained her mobility until quite recently when all of the sudden she seemed to age rapidly. We did as much as we could for her, after all she was our daughter, but it became obvious that the pain couldn't be controlled any longer and that she was miserable. Allie was 16 when we said goodbye to her. She was loved and will live in our hearts forever. We are honored to have been able to give her home and that she chose to share her life and love with us. Allie will forever hold a piece of our hearts.Mt Dora, FloridaNovember 16, 2015
10/1/2000 - 11/6/2015My beloved Gryphon was a big beautiful golden retriever however despite his size he was a gentle soul who touched so many lives and made having a dog a pleasure. I rescued Gryphon or should I say he rescued me! At the time I had just moved to Florida and was very lonely so I saw him at the animal control and was instantly in love. We were inseparable, we went to dog parks, the beach, jazz brunches in Ft. Lauderdale and everything else our little hearts desired. He was an avid swimmer. He could swim in the roughest waves and as far as I could possibly throw the Frisbee, he would still go and retrieve it.Meghan BrownPompano Beach, FloridaNovember 16, 2015

10/10/2005 - 11/13/2015Max, you were not "just a dog" you were a 4 legged human, our baby. The love you showed us, has spoiled us. Your intelligence, gentle demeanor, and pure devotion is what we will carry with us forever. From the moment you came to us, we knew we were lucky to have you. Even with your health issues, from the moment you broke your leg at 7 months old, to the day you left us, 10 years later, you never complained. You just wanted us to love you, that's all you ever asked. And it was easy to do and we were happy to provide all the love you wanted. We are so heartbroken over losing you. The house is too quiet. There's nobody to greet me at the door, when I come home from a long day. There's nobody laying at our feet, just needing to touch us. No big brown eyes to look up at us, before going to sleep. I will miss the days when you wanted something, and I would say "say please" and you would raise your paw. Our conversations where you would tilt your head as you listened intently. To say you were the greatest there ever was, is an understatement. Everyone should be as lucky as we were. You were a one in a million baby. I cleaned the family room today, around your bed and found the bones you "buried" under the corner of the couch. My heart just ached. I will miss you forever my dear, sweet Max. Until we meet at the Rainbow Bridge, life will never be the same. You are loved...forever and always.Brian and Cindi WalkerSterling Heights, MichiganNovember 15, 2015
11/12/2015We remember the day that we drove out to the farm in Tennessee to bring you home. You had a very unique color, adorable spots and a birth defect that instantly attracted us to you. For twelve and a half years you provided our home with many memories and although you had your “quirky” ways you were a very special part of our family and greatly loved. To all of us, you were a constant companion and loyal friend. Although we were not the perfect pet family, know that you will always be a part of our family and that something will be missing now that you are no longer with us.
You were a sweet dog who we could always count on to snuggle with whether it would be to watch Netflix or read books. You were our first love and you will never be forgotten.
You gave us all you had. Whether it was being there when someone needed a friend or simply cuddling up close when it was cold, we could always count on you to be there for us. Although you had some unconventional hobbies, like licking the water out of the dishwasher or bringing dirty socks into the living room for everyone to see, that is what made you special and will be one of the things we will miss the most. You got the most out of your short time here with us, and we will be forever thankful for everything you gave us. Our home will always be somehow empty without the click clack of your nails on the hardwoods or your constant presence beneath our feet in the ever crowded kitchen. You will be missed but never forgotten. There will always be an empty spot on the couch for you.

10/27/2006 - 10/30/2015My sweet,sweet Bella. My Belly, my Bells and now my Angel dog. It's been 2 weeks since you left and I miss you each and every day. You were my sunshine, my lovey,my comfort and my delight. My world is so empty without you. The 8 1/2 years I had you went by way too fast. You were a small dog with a huge heart who wanted nothing more than to love and be loved. And you were, more than you'll ever know. I pray that we one day we will be together again and until that day, you are forever in my heart,little one.Liz SicilianoTroy, MichiganNovember 13, 2015
4/11/2002 - 11/11/2015We remember the first day We got you, 6/16/2002 Father's Day. You rolled over the threshold of the garage door of the home we adopted you from. You ran up to me, sat on my feet and looked right into my eyes. I knew then you were meant to be mine. Emmitt We will cherish the 13 years and 7 months we had together!! You made both of your daddies very happy! You touched MANY hearts. We have done so much as a family, the day we adopted Macy your sister, you accepted her with the big smile you ALWAYS had. You melted a lot of hearts with that smile! You always watched over us, even when we weren't watching out for ourselves. We will miss the licks to wake us up, when nap time was over, or to let us know you loved us and you were happy. We hope you enjoyed your time with us just as much as we enjoyed having you with us! We will always love you, our big boy, you made your dads very proud! We LOVE and miss you deeply!!! We will all be together soon enough buddy!Chris & Jeremy Klubek-WillBuffalo, New YorkNovember 12, 2015
11/11/2015I love you, Sparky.One of your nicknames was "baby kitty sent from God". I believe that is the truth! Our whole family misses you.Becky RaynerOxford, MichiganNovember 12, 2015
Sophie Anne
10/8/2007 - 7/7/2013Not a day goes by that I don't think about Sophie. The truth is... I didn't save her, she saved me. ❤Jenny FieldsWf, TexasNovember 12, 2015
