|Dubya and Laura|
Unfortunately, Dubya died right before Christmas 2009 of pancreatic cancer. His cancer was swift and harsh. He was fine one day, and then died the next day on the operating table. Laura was devasted over her brothers death. She would mope around and was obviously grieving. I had to do something to cheer her up, so I got her another companion. A Beagle puppy. We named him Gipper! She soon fell in love with him and now Gipper and Laura are best friends. Laura and Gipper both acted like puppies together. She absolutely loves him.
