Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Samson and Shannon
11/29/2008 - 7/3/2020I am heartbroken to be without my two precious newfs. They were the most incredible companions and they had rich and full lives. Thank goodness for Dr. Campanelli who was their angel and helped them to pass peacefully. It will take a long time to come to terms with this loss.Veronica Morabito-WeeksBrightwaters, New YorkJuly 8, 2020
Mac
5/4/2008 - 6/28/2020Mac was the best cat I've ever had. He was the sweetest little boy and I will miss him so very, very much. Word cannot convey how loved he was and how much he will be missed.Elise HebelPhoenix, ArizonaJuly 8, 2020
Faith
9/1/2011 - 7/3/2020It is with extreme sadness that I write this, this past Friday we had to say goodbye to our loving Doberman Faith. Faith was a trooper, a fighter, and tried to hang in there. Short story about her history, she had a copper associated liver disease and required frequent lab draws, a special diet , and several medications. We did this for about 2 years and thought we were doing well. Then Faith developed some gait issues, it was like her feet wouldn't stay under her, so we saw a neurologist and after testing confirmed that there was a serious issue with her brain and brain stem, and we called Lap of Love. Never did I even know this service existed. I will have to say I was extremely impressed. We were able to love on our Faith while she ran up to the gates of doggy heaven.

Faith loved to go on car rides, well except to the vet LOL, and loved to go camping and ride in "her" golf cart. All we had to say was "get in the cart" and she would go run and hop in. She had her own piece of furniture and loved that chair. The little stinker would also know when I wanted to take her picture because she would turn her head just as I snapped. She loved her treats and would also get one when she went outside to potty. Sometimes she would want to go out several times just so she would get a treat. She will always be missed. Love you Faithy Girl!!!!, Love Mommy

Gabriella Gracious Princess - (Gabby)
9/22/2005 - 7/5/2020Miss Gabby set the bar for all of our pets. We have had her since she was 10 weeks old and she is part of the fabric of our family. She has so many friends that crossed the Rainbow Bridge before her and I picture her playing and swimming and not having to wrestle with arthritic legs and cancer. She is no longer an old girl but a puppy again chasing cats (not hurt them but she loved the chase) and squirrels and deer. She loved chasing the deer on the golf course in the morning - and they would come back out of the woods to taunt her too! My girl will be in my heart and memories until my last breath. I love all of my pets but they are all so different and unique. There will never be another like her.Dawn EvanoffColumbus, OhioJuly 8, 2020
Millie
7/15/2006 - 7/3/2020The very day you walked into our house 7 years ago, I KNEW you would become the BOSS! and that you became. You also became the first one to greet me after a long day at work, the one to take me on walks in the park, and the one who stole my heart. The day you passed over the Bridge will always be remembered as the day i helped out a friend but lost a piece of myself. I knew you couldnt stay. I didnt want you to go.....but your DESERVED dignity and respectfully helped you pass. I hope to see you FIRST when i too reach the other side. YOU WILL ALWAYS BE REMEMBERED ♥️Mindy AhnerTamaqua, PennsylvaniaJuly 7, 2020
Lily
6/4/2009 - 7/6/2020My dearest Lily baby,

I love you so so much! Thank you so much for being part of our family's life for 11 years. You are the best first dog I could ever ask for. Not too chill but always sweet, goofy and naughty enough to keep things interesting and fun. You have been with me all through my twenties and have helped me though many huge transitional changes in my life. You were even part of my wedding on our cake!

Sweet heart I know in doggy heaven you are chasing balls, lasers and getting all the unlimited car rides you can get on!

Honey, oh how I wish you could have met my first son coming this December. But I know you will be his guardian guard dog and watch over and comfort us. You are the best gift he has so far you have taught Daddy and I how to train, be patient, love, clean and spoil someone other than ourselves you will always be my baby.

Thank you for giving me your last kiss and final tail wag.

I love you so much and I'll see you next time!
Come visit me in my dreams anytime.

Love,
Mommy

Lily left this world yesterday peacefully at home with the ones she was loved the most beside my parents, brother, my husband and myself.

Although SIP sucks for many reasons. For me and Lily it was blessing. I got to spend a whole lot more time with her than I normally could not during her final months. These are memories I will cherish forever.

Carmel
7/4/2004 - 7/6/2020Having to say goodbye to Carmel was one of the hardest things that I have ever had to do. We adopted her when she was 5 weeks old, and I had the pleasure of having her for 16 years. She was best friends with my brother's dog Harley, who slept over every weekend. Carmel knew my brother's ring tone on my phone, and she would start barking as soon as she heard it, because that meant Harley was coming down. She let me dress her up in silly hats, but hated getting her picture taken, so I had to bribe her with a bone. She loved car rides, and she never wanted them to end. Now I know Harley was waiting for her when she crossed the rainbow bridge. They are both free to play free from pain and suffering. I will love you Carmel, you were the best dog we ever had! ❤😭Dolly Bucekshaler, PennsylvaniaJuly 7, 2020
Pedro Almodovar
7/6/2004 - 6/29/2020A piece of my heart is now missing. Our sweet, snaggletoothed, three-legged old man passed peacefully and like a prince; his head on a silk pillow, my arm around him and a tummy full of steak. Pedro taught me to be assertive, patient and how to love unconditionally.

If you knew Pedro, you knew his gremlin noises, his sweet stare, his red eyelashes and of course, in true chihuahua character, he most likely tried to bite you.

I know you’ll be watching over dog heaven in between naps and I hope they give you all the treats you want. Paulina and will hold down the pack for you.

As the great maestro and your namesake Pedro Almodóvar said, “Cinema can fill in the empty spaces of your life and your loneliness.” But I think he also meant dogs. #shrimpbreathforever

Lulu-belle
5/5/2010 - 7/5/2020Lulu,

We lost a part of our soul when you were taken from us. You are such a sweet girl. You filled our home and hearts with love and laughter. I loved watching you play after you ate your food. I am so sorry that you were taken from us so soon. My heart aches for you my sweet baby girl. Now you can run free and eat anything you want.

We love you Lulu-Belle.

Always in our hearts

Luna
1/1/2010 - 6/29/2020It was mid November 2011, when a little black unwanted dog was scooped up by a now defunct farm animal rescuer in Brandon, FL, placed in a cage in the back of an old beat up pick up truck and headed south to her new shelter on a farm with a log cabin house, set down a dirt road in the middle of nowhere.

Her young life story up to that point was horrible. She had never been in doors. She now roamed with cattle and horses on a farm, not the environment of a small indoor breed of a Cockapoo. Never been potty trained. Never had enough food. Never had fresh clean water. Never even groomed . No one ever checked on her to see if she was doing ok, she fended for herself on a farm where who knows what she endured to survive, but her owners knew she would bring a small fee to them for rescuing her from a breeder that send her to a Macon County Georgia kill shelter when they closed up shop when her first owner suddenly became ill and could no longer run her puppy mill business.

It was January 1st, 2012. One lick on my cheek and I was hooked. Her birth name we were told was Sassy and that she truly was! A shy little two year old girl afraid of her own shadow, who had been through so much neglect of living a caged life in backyard breeder and sent to a kill shelter, and finally in one lick, found her forever home. She chose me or I chose her, I will never know, but her sky blue rope leash made her peril seem so urgent that we quickly signed her Rescue Adoption Contract, paid her fee and swiftly headed back the two hour trek we blindly followed through an online rescue lead. A year later we discovered through a nightly news story had its own horrible animal hoarder situation. Luna could not speak this unbelievable truth, only lick my cheek to say, "please take me away from this terrible place".

We all arrived home very late her first night, she was scared, but such a joy to have her, it was like bringing a new born home for the first time. A brand new bed, new toy, fresh water, special treat. She was loved! We decided her first name should Luna, since she lighted our night like the moon light and made Sassy her middle name.

This little girl melted our hearts with her warm friendly personality. She willingly learned to potty train but on her on time frame. She refused to eat food out of her bowl because I think she had been so used to eating off the dirt ground, the clanging of her collar on the bowls edge freighted her, so the tile floor would be her plate. Every morning she would howl and sing so happily, as she was seeing us fill up filled up water bowl with freshwater is if we were serving her some fancy French meal. She was so delighted in such a pure simple thing as simply water.

She had her favorite spot on our couch. Her spot was smartly chosen by her, on the far right side, she could see out the front door, watch the laundry room door for whom ever entered the garage, she could watch TV, view the kitchen and backyard, she was literally sitting in the center of her universe! The Queen of her castle, she definably reigned in our house. From that point on, no one was going to sit there, but her and we were ok with that.
Is someone was sitting on her couch spot and she wanted them to move, go ring the bell, they’ll get up to let you go potty and while they get up to see what you want, she would go run and jump on sit on her couch spot on the couch. She was unbelievably hilarious. We laughed so hard we cried. Company could not believe it until they saw it for their selves. What if she wanted to know what room you were in and she lost track of you, she’d ring the bell to flush you out of where every you were hiding.

She was a bell ringer. It’s quite a funny story but we trained her to ring a bell, they are actually wind chimes that made a pleasant Zen sound that could be heard across the house to let us know she needed to “go potty”. Only later to find out that she realized, very quickly, that ring a bell got her attention for other things the bedroom door was closed and she wanted to go in there and sit on the bed go ring the bell and run and stand at the door! want fresh water? Go ring the bell and stand at your bowl! Want a late night snack, go ring the bell stand at the food cabinet door.

She could smell a Costco chicken from 20 miles away. She would keep track of that chicken in the fridge in the microwave. She’d give you that look “Wait where did it go”, “mommy did you want me to eat some too?” Our vet said "nope" to table scraps, but we still slipped her a few.

I will end this memorial here, because I could write a book on the life and times with our sweet girl. She was more like a daughter than a dog to me. Rest in peace my sweet angel.
