I have cried a lot. Lady has been such a blessing to me personally as I have transitioned into making Brazil my home. I love animals and there is just something about having a pet that makes you feel more at home.
Out of all the dogs I have ever had in my life, Lady was my favorite. Felipe and I really considered Lady our personal dog, although she was much loved by almost everyone in the house - staff workers, the children from the slum, the volunteers, and the many international teams that visit here.
Yesterday Lady had a fun time playing with the kids from our group in the Light House park! Her last full day of life was a happy one filled with treats and special attention and love.
Lady was a beautiful dog, with a loving and sweet temperment. She will be missed dearly here at the Light House Community Center!
