We Lost our Sweet Lola

The sad news is that we lost our wonderful dog, Lola. We rushed her up to UC Davis Vet hospital on Tuesday for a possible Pacemaker, her only hope, but she died before the surgery early Wednesday morning. We are, of course, devastated, but also OK. We find it hard to believe that she could go so quickly, but we spent all of her last few days holding her and loving her. She was, as always, so loving, open hearted, and cheery- a real mensch of a dog (if you can say that about a girl). The people at UCD were phenomenally kind and compassionate and tender with her and with us, especially doctor Epstein who was truly the epitome of what one hopes to find in a medical practitioner. We feel like we did all we could to help her, and all we could to show her how much we loved her, but it was time for her to leave us. There will be a huge hole in our lives and in our hearts that she used to fill. Daniella has also written about her in her blog, Encausticopolis. Our tears are flowing this week......
