Landry Has Crossed the Bridge

Received this news from Carol and Mark tonight....

"our hearts are heavy tonight. We made the decision to let landry go. It was difficult but we know she is in a better place. she has had a rough couple of days and really stopped eating most everything except bites of ice cream and yesterday had a few bites of turkey. she was coughing more and had been up most of the night coughing. This morning she gave us those sad labrador eyes and we knew she was tired and ready for us to end her fight.
she went for a ride to the feed store with mark and a long walk, then came home and she and porter hunted her "beloved" mice in the woodpile with determination. she and mark then watched their last sunset together before we made the LONG drive.
For all of you who have shown your love and support during this difficult time, thank you.
she was a big part of our lives for 5 1/2 years. She was a special girl who took a piece of our hearts with her tonight. She will be greatly missed."
Carol, Mark and Porter

A piece of our Hearts
Labradors take your heart, they walk with it, sleep with it, they never let it out of their sight and when it is their time they will take a little piece of it with them to remember you by and leave a piece for you to remember them by.

Mark and Carol rescued "Lady" (renamed her "Landry") from down South, five years ago. She was destined to be euthanized when they pulled her away from that madness and brought her to rural CT. She had a wonderful life, a wonderful family and reciprocated by being a wonderful dog. She will be missed by all who knew her, including Sandy and me.
