Helping Families Honor the Lives Of Those They Love
Johnson
2/25/2004 - 5/9/2015Johnson was the neighborhood flip-flop thief as a pup. When his owner died, we adopted him. He had been a barn dog, sleeping outside and under the porch. But, when he came to live with us, he slept on a king-sized pillow-top mattress. He liked to be chased. He was very protective, especially of his Daddy. He loved to eat Frosty Paws ice cream. He was a wonderful traveler and enjoyed many trips, including the Blue Ridge Parkway, where he swam in a lake. Johnson enjoyed two walks each day and would often look up to make sure we were still coming alongside him. He occasionally made an escape out the side door, but following a brief visit to his canine friends in the neighborhood, he'd return home promptly. Johnson had so many great personality traits, it's hard to remember them all, but we will never forget this deep devotion to us. We miss him terribly and hope to see him again someday.Keith Taylorwillow Spring, North CarolinaMay 23, 2015
Holly
12/22/1997 - 5/17/2015Oh, how I miss you my dear baby, Holly. From the time I first saw your picture on the Triangle Beagle Rescue website, despite how pitiful you looked, I knew you would be my baby. The rescue brought you to us that very same evening, and you were my baby from then on and still are. You brought joy, laughter and love to our home, and it's very quiet now that you're no longer here with us. I know you're at the Rainbow Bridge waiting with all of your brothers and sisters, cousins, etc. I miss you with all my heart. Your companionship, devotion and, most importantly, your love are very much missed. Your tiny body always betrayed the spirited soul and huge heart inside. I mourn your loss, but at the same time, I feel very blessed and honored to be your mom. Run in the wind, roll in the grass, let your spirit soar and always remember that I love you with my whole heart. Till we meet again, sweet baby...Janet NorthingDurham, North CarolinaMay 23, 2015

Christine
4/1/1994 - 5/22/2015I wonder how the sky can seem the same, the sun come up and life go on without Christine here with us.
The memory I leave is one of love and absolute, unconditional love. This precious girl that breathed life into each day has left a void.
We had no idea how we could get through the day.............every nook of our home holds memories...........every sound reminds us of Christy.
She will always be in the whisper of the breeze and the shadows of night.
No words can ever describe the loss we feel. It will never fade, but hopefully will turn to happy and loving thoughts of you.

If it was not for Dr, Katie we would never have made it through the day.

We will love you always Christine.

Rusty
7/4/2015 - 5/22/2015Rusty you gave us more love than we can express. You stayed by me when I was so sick and would not leave. You welcomed us home always with a happy face and wagging tale. We loved to take you for rides even if it was a short one. You are missed by your emediate and extended family. We love you and miss you so much.Ken AmlingWellington, FloridaMay 23, 2015
Smokey
5/1/2003 - 5/21/2015Thank you to the people of Lap of Love for helping us through the obviously difficult time of putting our beloved Smokey to rest. She was rescued in 7/2003 to keep our then 12 yr old Rottweiler young, so it's still hard to believe now it was Smokey who had aged to a point, we had to make this difficult decision. She was the first dog our 5 yr old ever knew and we will forever hold her in our hearts, for she loved our daughter dearly. Smokey was so well behaved, loved everyone, and was the "best gold dog" we ever had. Our hearts are aching w/o her here, but we are comforted knowing she's in doggy heaven w/ the Rottweiler who was her buddy, that we had to put down about 7 yrs ago. We told our daughter we'll all get to see Smokey one day in heaven. Until then, we'll talk to her in our dreams. Love you Smokey.Alex & Lindsay GradenRiverview, FloridaMay 22, 2015
Baxter
11/12/2003 - 5/19/2015Baxter, we fell in love with you the day we met you and your brother Maddy. We knew right away we had to adopt both of you. I don't know how someone could abandon such lovely dogs, but their loss was our wonderful gain! You gave us such wonderful memories over these past 11 years, you went way too soon. We remember how you went from not wanting to be held as a puppy to never wanting to leave our side, especially your mommy's. We loved curling up with you on the couch and in bed, and we will miss having your head resting on our legs at night. Most of all, we will miss having you greet us at the door when we come home, with your baby doll in your mouth, acting like you are bringing it for us, but when we reach for the doll you would not let us have it. Know you were loved by us and Maddy every minute of every day and you will be missed by us every minute of everyday, and we are sorry we couldn't keep you around longer. I know Barney and Sydney are waiting for you at Rainbow bridge, and someday we will all meet up again.Katrina & Joe MorroccoCary, North CarolinaMay 22, 2015
Coalie
5/16/2015After a long hard fight, this sweet, loving dog left us May 16 surrounded by her family. Thank you for being my Mom's little buddy and for being my sissy. Coalie you were a one of a kind dog with so much personality. Thank you for giving us a chance and letting us adopt you. Now go chase a squirrel, don't let anyone touch your bone without giving them a good grump, and always keep your paws dry as you taught me a true lady does.Leigh ArnoldDover, PennsylvaniaMay 22, 2015
Maui
5/20/2012 - 5/20/2015My little peanut - I loved you from the moment I adopted you! You brought me so much joy and loved the way you wrestled your mamma and how excited you got over your duck jerky treats; you gave a new meaning to 'fanatical'. You slept by my side every night and miss you wriggling while dreaming. You are with Tico and Kona now at Rainbow bridge and can't wait to be reunited with you all. I am sure you are bossing them around already :) Daddy loves you and misses you too...he misses you trying to tonsil box with him (LOL). See you soon little precious one.Liz JuroeTampa, FloridaMay 21, 2015
Chico
5/12/2015Oh my sweet boy - I can't believe a week has passed already since I let you go. I still can't fathom never hearing your special (non) meow again. I know I will love another pet again someday but you were SO wonderful I just can't imagine any being able to compare to you. I hope you met up with Thumpy at the rainbow bridge. He can be your big brother now. Todd and I will miss you forever - our first "child', our kitty kat, our Mackie. Love you my baby.Costa Mesa, CaliforniaMay 20, 2015
