Pet Memorials
Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Pippin
1/12/2003 - 2/15/2021Pippin (also known as Togo after the Disney movie) was 18 years old when he passed. He was part of our family since he was 3 months old. In his younger years he was truly a "holy terrier!" When I adopted him I ran a 501(c)3 cat rescue and I also had four other (very large) dogs...so Pippin was the little man on the block. He always acted like a big dog. One of my favorite memories of him is his desire to be one of the "big dogs" and he would jump up on the coffee table just to be at their height. Too funny! He was a typical fearless terrier. He a mutt...a terrier mutt.
Over the years, the other, larger dogs, crossed the Rainbow Bridge and then there was just Pippin left. He mellowed and greyed in his older years. He lost his hearing. But he didn't lose his love of life. He was always eager to go for many walks, play chase around the island, or just randomly do zoomies around the living room.
In the end, he had many health issues that we struggled to treat. We truly believe we gave him the best life but as good pet stewards, our job is to ensure that he is happy and healthy. We struggled with making that most difficult decision. At the time, we were unaware of Lap of Love; a friend recommended that we call them. I am so glad I did.
Dr. Amanda was amazing! I can say without hesitation that Pippin's last moments were free of stress and free of fear. He was surrounded by his mom and dad and by an angel who helped make sure that his last moments were full of love and tenderness.

Kona Bear
2/4/2009 - 1/29/2021Kona was everything to us. He was the sweetest boy, always smiling, always by your side and had such a free-spirit. He filled our hearts with so many memories together like hiking, boating, taking long sniffs on walks, begging for peanut butter and enjoying lazy days on his cot or the couch. We hope we were good puppy parents to you Kona and gave you a loving home. You almost made it to 12 and we are so blessed you touched our lives for as long as you did. You will be forever in our hearts as we deal with your loss. May we be reunited again in hugs and wet kisses on the rainbow bridge. We love you Kona and you'll always be our sweet boy.Jennifer and Chris AnthonyLivermore, CaliforniaFebruary 16, 2021
Maddie
3/6/2015 - 2/15/2021Maddie- You always wanted to be close and were interested in what we were doing. You had a personality ten times the size of your little dachshund body. We remember how you used to chase the kids down the sled run and boss around the big dogs in Paris. And how you took such good care of your fur sister, Brindie. We will miss your companionship, your distinctive footfalls, and all your snuggles- especially during virtual school and work when you would lay next to us or behind us on the couch like a dog scarf. We wish your body hadn't failed you earlier than it should have. But better six years than to have never loved you.Elizabeth HFalls Church, VirginiaFebruary 16, 2021

Maui
9/29/2007 - 1/25/2021Maui we all miss you all so much. The house is so quiet and still in your absents. We miss you waiting at the door for us when we get home, the wag of your tail and the excitement you expressed. It was a difficult choice to make, we all knew it was getting close to the time. Your body was getting weaker, but yet you still had spirit in your heart. You helped our family adapted to a new situation when we mover to NC. We made so many new human and fury friends along the way.Stacie KuckerApex, North CarolinaFebruary 16, 2021
