lola's passing

lola had a very good last day. while she did not swim in the lake, she did paddle around for a bit. she had fried chicken for lunch, toast for an afternoon snack, homemade biscuits and jam after dinner...lola loved a good meal above all. we had a quiet afternoon and evening, she laid around while i cooked and fed her. i think she really enjoyed the peace and quiet of just the two of us..she mostly just moved from bed to bed with the occasional trip outside and i divided myself between catering to her needs and watching movies. a pretty good night for a couple of old farts to share. we stopped at mcdonalds the next morning on the way to the vets and lola wolfed down her breakfast that then ate most of mine.
she passed very peacefully and gently from this life..it was a good death and i think even she knew it was her time.

rest in peace sweet lola...i really enjoyed our last night together and hope you are now happy and free.

Don't know how your heart deals with all the sadness, Carol. Lola must have loved her day with you.
