4/23/2016My companion of 13 years, Laci, was guided across the bridge and pronounced at peace at 11.56AM. The crossing took place at her home in the country where she loved to chase squirrels and just run. She had 14 super years with lots of adventures and travel.

Unfortunately, she had multiple health conditions in her last few months. She was a fighter to the end, but I could not see her die a lingering death due to her will to live. I did everything humanly possible to help her, but Lap of Love was there to help me assess the alternatives in the end.

She underwent an experimental surgery, embolisation, to try an cure her unsectable liver tumour in 2014. She was one of two case studies used by the doctor who performed the procedure in a paper on the subject. She also took part in a clinical trial of a drug called beraprost. Her body has been donated to Penn's Veterinary School for autopsy. I hope her passing will provide useful information to help other dogs live longer.
