Today our dog Loni was put to sleep. The tumor she had grew and she became unable to walk. She was 14 years old and an amazing guide dog. She has hiked many miles with my dad and swam in many lakes. She kept my mom company on lots of carpool rides. I can still remember seeing her for the first time when we wen to pick my dad up at the airport. She got so excited she started jumping on all of us.
Lily had especially loved Loni lately. She enjoyed crawling underneath her and would laugh hysterically when Loni's tail would wag in her face. We will miss Loni greatly, but we are glad she is out of pain.
On a happier note, my dad plans to get a new seeing eye dog in the near future. I'll keep you posted.
