5/1/2009 - 3/26/2020We found Freddy by looking through Petfinder I believe. He was just the cutest boy that we'd ever seen. He was in Harrodsburg at the Animal Shelter. Rat Terrier through and through. We made the trip from Lexington to go visit him. He was literally the doggy in the window.He was crated in their front window but we missed him as we passed. As soon as they took him out he jumped in Cristy arms. That was it. He was sweet and so full of love. Freddy didn't much like other people or dogs. He just loves his close family. One day he started having seizures so the Jessamine Animal Hospital diagnosed him with Epilepsy. He was on phenobarbital for many years. This changed his demeanor a bit but not much. It eventually reduced them to once every several months. Freddy had a love for his people like we've never felt before. We've both had many dogs in our life from childhood to present but never one like him. When I was diagnosed with with a cardio related syncope problem I started passing out several times weekly for a few years. When I came to Freddy was always there right beside me licking my face. That's one of the many times that he came to our rescue. He loves kisses on the head and cuddling more than anything .. well maybe playing fetch at Grandma and Grandpa's at the lake. He was just a lover and had to be close to us at all times. His favorite person in the planet was his mama. He followed her around constantly and watched when she left until she came back. A couple of months ago after many many visits to 3 vets he was diagnosed with Lupus SLE. In that amount of time it has attacked his liver and done irreversible damage. Freddy spent many night in the hospital receiving fluids and treatment. It worked up until this last trip. His kidneys just couldn't handle any more. We had to the make the impossibly difficulty decision to let him go. With all that is going on with Covid-19 all that the vets could offer was for us to drop him off and leave. We could not and would not do that. We contacted Kendra at Laps of Love. She went through all the proper channels and came to our home only a few hours after the call. She was so nice and professional. We couldn't have asked for a more peaceful and warm end. This is will hurt always. He was a special soul. Thank you Kendra for making it as easy as it could have been. We love you Freddy! Sincerely, Chad and CristyChad and Cristy GravittLexington, KentuckyMarch 27, 2020

Sending peaceful vibes and loving memories for you to have of Freddy Mercury.Cheryl Campbell - March 28, 2020
Freddy Mercury Gravitt was a love. I will be forever grateful for the way he 'self-trained' himself to be my son's guardian and protector during bouts of syncope when he became unconscious, often times injuring himself in the fall. Freddy stayed right by his side or alerted others in the household.

While our family will always miss sweet Freddy, we are glad that he's free of pain and all the associated side-effects of his treatments.

Run free, Freddy.

So sorry for your loss. I know how much I love my babies. They love us even more. We are truly blessed to have their unconditional love and Freddy was so lucky to have someone love him so much back as the both of you.

Freddy was the sweetest boy in the world. We love him like he love each other. I’ll always miss how excited he was as soon as one of us came through the door. His time was cut short but the life he lived was full of love and adventure. I love you so much Freddy and will miss you everyday. ❤️Kaylee Gravitt - March 28, 2020
