Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
1/15/2013 - 2/14/2021My sweet Sugar was the poster child for pit bulls, and represented everything lovable, laid back, and caring about them. It’s only been a day and my house feels so empty without her. Her baby brothers are looking for her everywhere, but I think they’re starting to understand. I miss her crazy eyes when she would smell chicken, her little nub tail constantly wagging, and the long slow walks we would take. I thought I would have a few more years with my angel, but lymphoma took her from me too soon. Sugar helped me through the toughest year of my life, and got me up in the mornings when I thought I just couldn’t anymore. The easiness of having her allowed for me to rescue two other dogs then looked up to her like she was their mother. She was so nurturing and thought them how to be proper adults and to cut their puppy antics out. She was the light of my life, and always will be.Loren HillSaint Petersburg, FloridaFebruary 15, 2021

4/6/2006 - 2/9/2021Sweet Ms. Lola,

It's only been 6 days since you've had your angel wings but we miss you so much. You were loved by all of us so much.

You were always the queen of the dogs. I hope you are talking care of Clinton, Molly, and Zoey!

RIP our little baby, you're always in our hearts.

6/1/2011 - 2/12/2021I keep looking but you're not there. You've been replaced by pain and despair. I call your name but you don't hear. I keep looking but you're not there.jim pincienola, PennsylvaniaFebruary 15, 2021
4/6/2011 - 2/12/2021Dear Phoebe,
The day we went to pick you up, you squeezed your way out of the pen that you were in with 4 other puppies, and came trotting over to us, wagging your little butt. Immediately we knew that you chose us. We brought you home on 6/25/11. From that day forward, you charmed your way into the hearts of all who met you, even "non-dog people". Nana and Aunt Coco loved you the most! We won the dog lottery with you for sure! You never chewed up anything that didn't belong to you and you never ever growled or nipped at anyone. At first, you were so small that you could squeeze through the slats in our fence, so daddy had to fix it so you couldn't get out! You loved to run and play outside, especially with the kids and other dogs. When we walked you around the neighborhood, we would get stopped by anyone who was outside because you were the cutest thing on the planet! As time went on, the kids got bigger, and our lives got busier. But you were always there with a wagging tail and booty, greeting us at the door with something in your mouth. A toy, a bone, a sock, a had to bring all humans something to show how much you loved them. And they loved you right back! It didn't matter if we were gone a week on vacation or 2 minutes to run and get the mail at the end of the driveway, you were waiting with a "gift" and a wagging tail when we returned.
In 2014, we moved to a new home and you were so excited to meet Rusty next door. He quickly became your BFF, and he would frequently show up on the back patio to peer through the glass door to find you! You were sad when they moved away a few years later, but in 2018, we got you a brother. Sheldon joined the family, and while you weren't exactly thrilled with this large puppy, you accepted him and even grew to enjoy rough-housing with him. You loved him, but you definitely preferred humans over all others.
Through the years, you traveled with us all over the place! You went camping in Wisconsin, Indiana, Illinois, and Michigan on the RV. You weren't a huge fan of the car, but you sure loved going places! You came with us to visit family all over and they spoiled you with love when you arrived. In recent times, you and Sheldon and I went to the dog park almost everyday and you loved it! You didn't run as much as you sniffed everywhere and enjoyed all the humans who pet you and showed you attention. You'd rub up against their legs and they would melt and tell me how adorable and sweet you are. For a long time, we were convinced you were a cat trapped in a dog's body because you used to act very "cat-like". One time, you even "meowed"! After you were groomed, you were so soft that we called you the "velvet frog"...we had so many nicknames for you!
Besides the constant barking at everything and nothing, you were very chill. Frequently you woke early so you could eat your breakfast, which wasn't our favorite thing in the world, but we would do anything for you! To say you loved food puts it mildly. Your favorite thing on planet earth was food. We are going to miss you sitting right beside us anytime we were cooking or eating...gazing up, laser-focused, waiting for us to drop some for you. You were no dummy either! You knew that your big brother was the "weakest link" and you would often just lie right underneath him while he ate because you knew that he would drop plenty of "treats" for you! The day you stopped eating was very alarming for all of us.
There are way too many memories to share, but just know that we cherish all of them and you will always be in our hearts. You were my first dog. The pain and emptiness without you is crushing. I always knew it would be hard, but I never knew it would feel like this. Thank goodness we have Sheldon to help us through our grief, but we would give anything to have you come home again. Coming in the house and not seeing you there is nearly unbearable. You definitely made our house a home and it's empty without you. We are grateful you were still with us in 2020, as you were intregal in keeping all of us sane during the quarantine. This last year has been hellish, and losing you has just added to it.
Even though we never found out what exactly was wrong with you, we knew that it was bad. We are angry that you didn't get more time. You were just shy of your 10th birthday and had always been so healthy that we thought you'd be the one who lived to 17! We are in shock that you are gone and it all happened so soon. The end was devastating for us, but Dr. Dan made it the most peaceful experience. For a horrible situation, it was the best it could possibly be. We know that you died in peace and comfort, surrounded by all of your favorites, in front of your beloved fireplace. (You used to lie right in front of close that we always wondered how you weren't cooking your insides!). The moment before Dr. Dan gave you the sedative, you walked over to Sheldon, bent your head down to him as he lie on the floor, and kissed him. He kissed you back. It was the sweetest and most heartbreaking thing I have ever seen. I know that you knew. And that he did too. You were saying goodbye. I will never forget that moment for as long as I live.
We are all so sad without you, but we are happy you are no longer in pain. And we have faith that you are up in heaven, waiting for us to join you someday.
Phoebs, you changed our lives, filled our hearts, and we will miss and love you forever. Thank you for choosing us. It was our honor to be your family.
XO, Daddy, Mommy, Nate, Ella, and Sheldy-boy

10/4/2005 - 2/6/2021Today is the first day I have not cried all day since Friday 02/05/2021 when I made the call to Lap of Love. My beautiful long haired German Shepherd you lived over 5 years your life expectancy, but at almost 15 1/2 I knew your time was at hand.

You loved going for walks, playing fetch, but above all loved being in the snow. We would spend so much time outside, when we came back in you looked like a white dog you were covered in so much snow. You were always by my side, following me everywhere, even if I was only getting more coffee you would be right by my side. You were an excellent guard dog, very loyal, and loving companion.

Everyone always asked the same question when they heard your name, "Did you name him after the Steven Spielberg move?" I would laugh and than explain: "No. He is named after Curtis Joseph who once was the goalie for The Red Wings hockey team." Then I would add: "Although you don't want to cross him because he is extremely protective and can be very aggressive."

You gave unconditional love and showed me, in order to be remembered leave nothing behind but love".

Even though it's very difficult going on without you I know we will meet again, and what a joyful reunion that will be. Until than you will always be in my heart and forever loved.

9/2/2005 - 2/8/2021Raven, aka Ravey Gravy, aka The Silkiest, we will miss your majestic demeanor, chattiness, head butts, silly antics, and ever present company. We believe you had a great kitty life, and hope that you agree. We will miss you tremendously and hope that you rest in peace. Your memory is a truly a blessing, a bright spot in life; and we are grateful to have shared time (and a lot of table scraps) wth you.Pauline NelsonFREEHOLD, New JerseyFebruary 14, 2021

12/25/2006 - 1/23/2021Prince, my puppy man, you were my best friend and best “buddy”. I miss you so much. It feels so empty without you here. I will never forget the joy you brought to me and my family’s life every day. I know you are better now, not dealing with any ailments that keep you from being able to get socks and Miss Piggy, I wish I were there to chase you and play toss with you. You lived a long happy life and brought so much happiness to Me and Steph. Grand Mommy and Grand Daddy miss you so much. They miss you running in their house to greet them and wish they could take you on a golf cart ride. Our trips to home depot will not be the same without you with us (getting all kinds of attention). I am going to miss watching sunsets on my truck tailgate with you. We will love you forever and will never forget you. Until we can take another walk, I’ll be thinking of you. I love you puppy!Brian HugginsJacksonville, FloridaFebruary 14, 2021
3/1/2007 - 1/31/2021Lacie, you were such a pretty, social and smart girl. Everyone loved you when they saw you because there wasn’t a crowd that you didn’t want to be in. I will miss having you as my traveling companion for the last14 years. There was never a car ride too long for you as long as you could sleep in the passenger seat. I will never stop looking for you there. The house is so empty without you. LYA.Arlington, VirginiaFebruary 14, 2021
