On Memorial Day of 2009 we had to put our 8 year old Labrador Shy to sleep. She had gotten ill recently and could not get any better. One week later my husband found a 5 week old labrador/golden retreiver mix. We named her Dolly. She really filled the void of missing our Shy. She had a lot of personality and spunk! I took her to my sons little league baseball games and everyone loved her. She might have drove me crazy chewing, jumping and eating everything in sight but I loved her. She loved rough housing with our other dog and cats! She was a gentle and sweet girl. We live out in the coutry and across the road from the Cedar River. Dolly loved playing in the pond next to the cedar river and had been playing down by the water and when she came up the hill to cross the road our neighbor accidently hit her. She was killed instantly. I was devasted. Losing 2 dogs in 2 months is too much. We are on the look out for another of her breed but nothing will ever replace our sweet baby girl Dolly.
