We lost our Zoe (Sara) on November 4th, 2023. 14 years from the day we adopted her, 11/01/2009. Zoe was introduced to us by my brother and sister-in-law that fostered Labs for CILRA, I had asked them to keep an eye out for a pup for us and my sister-in-law said she was going to pick up a new foster. The minute I met Zoe I was in love, now to convince my husband. Zoe didn’t fail me, she won his heart instantly.
Zoe was the sweetest, smartest dog we have ever owned. She always was so excited to see me when I came home from work, running to great me the minute I would open the garage door. She watched over me and followed me everywhere, my shadow! When the grandkids came along, she took care of them like they were hers, was always right beside them playing or napping with them and of course under them as they ate!
Zoe brought us smiles, laughs and some tears over these 14 years and we miss her more than I could ever imagine. Zoe will always be with us, and I will never forget her quirky silly style! Until we meet again continue chasing those squirrels and soaking up that sunshine! We will forever love you! — Pam E. & Family
