Cocoa Bean
3/1/2005Cocoa Bean was our treasure. We adopted her from a rescue group in 2006. She was a true “water girl” who spent most of her time lounging in and near the creek on our property. We miss you our beautiful girl❤️Julie BlackVictor, New YorkMay 31, 2020
7/17/2004 - 5/29/2020Our lives will never be the same without Tucker in our home. He was not just a pet, he was a family member. Everyone that met him , loved him. May he rest in peace knowing that he gave us almost 16 years of love, happiness and protection. leLisajo KeelerRochester, New YorkMay 31, 2020
5/22/2005 - 5/29/2020We said goodbye to my best girl yesterday. We made the decision to put Layla to sleep, in the home, while she was still at least partially with us and before her suffering became debilitating. There were signs she had been slipping for a while - back legs giving out, fading vision and hearing, losing her balance, more panting, and looking confused and lost around the house. For as difficult as this was for us, this was absolutely the right thing to do before her suffering came to define her life. I give my mother credit for making the painful but merciful and loving decision to put her to sleep - and for being an incredible dog mother to Layla for 15 years. And thanks to Dr. Amy Parrish and Lap of Love Veterinary Hospice & In-Home Euthanasia for providing professionalism, convenience, and compassion to us on Layla’s final day.

She was our Bighead, with a wonderful sense of humor, intelligence, confidence, and friendliness to whomever she met. She was my favorite girl since the day we adopted her in August 2005, the summer proceeding my junior year at ESU. She was there when I graduated from college, returned from Prague, finished graduate school, began multiple new jobs, and she saw the beginning and end of an engagement and relationship. She was the bossy-yet-kind princess, the independent and welcoming, sometimes younger and sometimes older, dog sister to three other dogs who came and went during her watch (including one surviving puggle). Throughout all the life changes, Layla was the dog I loved greeting me and reminding me I was home. But now, nature has taken its course, and aging and death have finally caught up to her. Her death leaves a big giant hole in my heart, but I know we gave her a peaceful death and final gift after a life about as good as any you could imagine for a dog.

Farewell, Bighead. I love you, and I’ll see you on the other side 🖤

8/2/2006 - 5/29/2020When I got Bo in 2006 he was smaller than a can of soda and was supposed to be a "Teacup Poodle". But he just kept growing and growing and growing, clearly he is not a Teacup Poodle but instead turned out to be a mini Goldendoodle. Bo was the happiest dog I have ever met. He loved life and everyone he met. Bo loved to run and play at the dog park and at dog beach. He loved to run and he ran so fast. He was a very good watch dog and protected me many times. Bo loved to eat Ritz crackers and he would "fish bite" them and take like a whole minute to eat one cracker. He was silly, fun and like I said loved to play.Tammy PettiboneMenifee, CaliforniaMay 30, 2020
12/25/2008Shiloh was born on Christmas Day. I found her at Young William's Animal Shelter. She was surely a gift! She had a large tumor on her head and her face when I got her but she was still as precious as ever. Once the tumors were removed she lived a full life with her brothers Tiamo and Baciagaloop. She was a sweet and gentle girl. It wasnt until a month ago when she had a respiratory infection that started her decline. I cant thank Laps of Love staff and Dr. Allie for getting to my home so quickly. Their understanding, kindness and compassion I will never forget. Pam SilanoKnoxville, TennesseeMay 30, 2020
10/18/2012 - 5/29/2020Monte was the most amazing cat. Although his life was cut short by cancer his life was filled with love and laughter. He will be missed by all who met him.Kelly JeongBaltimore, MarylandMay 30, 2020
11/5/2005 - 5/23/2020It has been exactly a week since we put our little boy Snuggles to sleep. (He was 14 years old) I have tried many times to go on to the memorial site and write a little something but it has been to hard for me. I miss my little Snuggles so much, I am so heart broken a little piece of me is missing. Snuggles was the craziest little guy. Loved his mama very much followed me everywhere even when he went blind he still managed to find me around the house. And if there was food he was there! We are going to miss him very much. I’d like to think this is not goodbye but more like see you later, we will see each other again. Mama loves you Snuggles always .Andrea SchneiderDavie, FloridaMay 30, 2020

1/6/2020 - 5/24/2020I don’t even know what to say. Lizy was one of our foster puppies. She was staying with us temporarily and for a few nights she slept with me and followed me everywhere. There was just something about her. I was approved to adopt her when she was 4 months and and she had been spayed. She was my babiest girl from the start.

She has been with me through so many changes in my life, she was at home in all of my family member’s homes. She traveled with me, was a demo dog for teaching children about how to greet dogs. She loved children and patiently raised so many foster puppies. She loved to hike, she woooo wooooed at me every morning. The first thing I saw every morning were her eyes. Always we met eyes. When I left the house, when I came home.
I miss her, I will miss her always.

9/27/2005 - 10/1/2019I went to purchase a puppy and the owner set all the puppies loose. They were rolling and playing it was very difficult to choose. Then I felt this lick on my arm as I was crouched down viewing puppies. Here was the smallest puppy of the litter sitting quietly looking up at me as she licked my arm. I thought she a runt and will have health issues so I chose another puppy. As the nights came all I thought of was the runt. I heard her say my name is Elle'. I called and she was still there but they said she wold cost $100 more. I didn't care. Elle' and I were bonded. She chose me and we were inseparable. Her sister was bonded with my husband. It was perfect. The girls were so close all through the years and were also inseparable. We all miss her still.Susan SutherlandSacramento, CaliforniaMay 30, 2020
