Rest in Peace LIlly

Well here I go again. I had to make the hardest decision no pet owner ever wants to make. I thought was Lilly grieving when her brother Gus died unexpectedly 3 months ago. Sadly though it was more than that. She was diagnosed a couple weeks ago with an incurable brain tumor. Unfortunately she went down hill fast. My vet came to the house today and ended Lilly’s pain. My beautiful girl is going to be missed by many. She went from the nervous rescue when Linda, myself and Gus drove to Florida 11 years ago to get her to become an amazing therapy dog. She was the first “Paws to Read” dog with 2 of our libraries here in Charles County the past 7 years. The only relief I have is knowing she’s not in pain anymore and is happily running around with Gus again with Linda throwing the ball for both of them now. My house feels so empty now.
