Lily of Cobblestone died April 4th at age 7. Tragically and shockingly, she choked while eating breakfast and we couldn't hear her because of construction noise outside. Because she always ate in what seemed like a panic, we intentionally left her alone in the kitchen. Only after did I read about bowls that allow dogs to eat slower.
Happy, playful, and people loving, Lily was a therapy dog and loved visiting the Salvation Army and senior centers around town. It seems like such a senseless loss, and I can't stop being sad. She was a truly wonderful dog and I miss her terribly.
