Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
6/12/1996 - 3/17/2014In memory of Cheddar, our big furry 17 year old yellow striped baby. He went peacefully to the Rainbow Bridge today where he can now see of out BOTH eyes, and eat all the cheese dip he wants! This photo is of Cheddar a few years ago when he was still healthy and enjoying his favorite place - his garden. Today was a rainy day, which was always Cheddar's favorite - he loved the rain. Dr. Barry Cherno came and helped Cheddar find his way to the Rainbow Bridge with no pain. I want to thank Dr. Barry for making such a sad day a little easier. Cheddar even approved of Dr. Barry, and was relaxed with him. We will treasure Cheddar's paw print always. A million Thank You's for providing this service.Lynn CunninghamNew Port Richey, FloridaMarch 18, 2014
Murphy Paddy Ohiggins
3/17/2003 - 3/16/2014My Murphy went to sleep with the assistance of Dr. Angela on Sunday. He was in his own home where he has lived for his entire life... I wanted him to be here and not in a sterile office. He went to sleep peacefully and with dignity... Dr. Angela was an angel and helped him cross over. It was important to me and I will always recommend Lap of Love to everyone.Tanya HigginsWilliamsburg, VirginiaMarch 18, 2014
11/15/1999 - 3/15/2014We said goodbye to our sweet, beautiful Mac, yesterday. Our hearts are so heavy with grief. He was a beautiful gift from God. We will always cherish the memories of his time with our family.

Jennifer Cook, the gentle veterinarian with Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice who helped us, wrote this beautiful tribute.

"In loving memory of a most gorgeously handsome Border Collie named Mac. He was not only beautiful on the outside, but also on the inside with a sweet, relaxed nature and gentle spirit. Mac was generally calm but was known to go crazy for a frisbee and had a habit of popping soccer balls! He was quite an athlete in his younger days. As true to his breed, he was a natural herder and kept his home in line at all times; always 'on the job' and he kept his feline family members in line. When his human sister (Ivy) was born, he would peek into her crib and stare curiously at her......later, as she got older, he realized that she would be the wonderful source of all sorts of tasty treats.

Mac's greatest goal in life was to please his family and he gave all of himself to them. Even as age and illness made him weak and tired, he fought bravely and without complaint, looking to his beloved family for approval. There was no doubt how much he loved them.

It was with such very heavy hearts that Mac's family said goodbye to him today while he lay in a favorite place outside in the warm Tennessee sun with the sounds of the birds all around. He has truly earned his angel wings.

Rest in peace Mac, you sweet furry angel. You are such a good boy and have no idea how much you will be missed."

3/15/2014Cleo, whom I got when I was 10 years old. She was sweet, beautiful, comforting, mysterious, curious, and strong. She loved to be outside in the sun or on her heating pad when she was old. She loved to rub faces, tuck her head under your chin, and be the little spoon to me or my husband under our blankets. So cute! Cleo loved pillow forts. If she could see you and felt like you couldn't see her she went right to sleep

When I was diagnosed with a chronic illness this past summer she gave me immense comfort, just as she did countless times when I was an awkward preteen, depressed teenager, and young adult finding my way in life. In some ways I felt like I was her mommy, but in other ways she was a mom to me too. I gave her everything I thought she ever wanted. Spoiled was not the word. I respected her and wanted her to be happy just as she did for me.

8/20/2003 - 3/13/2014It is with great heartbreak that we had to bury our dear sweet Halbie today. Dr. Brad Bates, a wonderful vet from Lap of Love came and did an in home euthanasia yesterday so our Halbie could be in familiar, comfortable surroundings when he passed. Dr. Brad was kind and gentle, with a consoling beside manner that put me at ease. I got to hold and talk to Halbie and kiss him and scratch his ears for at least 15 minutes while he was sedated so he could feel no pain but still hear my voice. I told him how much we loved him and would miss him but he would feel all better now. I constantly repeated all the greetings I would give him and things I would say to him when he was well and wanted to be carried around like a baby and petted, hugged and kissed. He always wanted to be with me and followed me around like a puppy. Whenever I sat or lay down he wanted to be right on top of my lap….or my neck! Thank you, Halbie, for loving us so deeply and unconditionally. Thank you for being there for me every single time, especially during the bad times. You are such a sweetheart, one in a million. I’ll never experience another cat like you. Grateful to have us and always affectionate. Happily allowed Brayden to manhandle you, even hold you upside down and dance with you. You were the first thing Brayden smiled at as an infant, and one of his first words: “kit-kat.” You always wanted to be with us and snuggle. Never did I hear a cat purr so much in my life. There is a gaping hole in my heart; you will be deeply missed. You went way too soon and much too quickly. I am glad your suffering has ended, however I feel mine is just beginning. I’m not sure how to face life without you, my little buddy and constant companion. Your genuine and unequivocal love will never be forgotten. Thank you for coming into my life and making it fuller. We love you. Godspeed, Halbinator, our Little Half Tail. 8/20/2003 – 3/13/2014.Christel NickumDoylestown, PennsylvaniaMarch 15, 2014

2/10/2001 - 2/11/2014Brutus was a very special pomeranian. He was really smart. If you told him to "assume the position", he would turn around so you could pick him up. Each time you walked in the house, he would welcome you with a toy in his mouth with this beautiful trumpet sound. He used to have this tiny squeaky monkey toy, and I would squeeze it and tell him, "say hi mr monkey". When I put the toy on the floor, Brutus would pick the toy up and as I told him to "say hi mr monkey", he would bite the toy until it squeaked for me. Then Brutus would get a round of applause. He taught the other poms a game with the cat too. While the other pom got the cat to run, Brutus would hide just around the corner of the hallway where the cat couldnt see him. When the cat ran, Brutus would try to cut the cat off and scare her as she came around the hallway. We can tell the cat misses him and keeps looking for her buddy who gave her such a good chase game. Brutus was very gentle and loving. He was orange and cream....he looked like a baby cub.Connie Olsensmyrna, DelawareMarch 14, 2014
