KNOXVILLE, Tenn. (WATE) — Lala, the beloved senior dog who was in “fospice” care due to cancer, has died, according to Young-Williams Animal Center.
YWAC says that Lala’s last wish on her bucket list was fulfilled after she was officially adopted by her foster parent who created the bucket list for her.
In a statement, Young-Williams said, “Everyone who knew Lala loved her, and her inspiring story touched many in the community. Her legacy will live on thanks to the foster family who cared for Lala in her final days. Fostering makes a world of difference for pets in need, and we are grateful to all those who volunteer their time, home and care.”
When we first reported this story, her foster mom said, “From the first day we met her, she immediately accepted us. Her sweet, calm demeanor captivates everyone who meets her. Lala enjoys companionship so much that she complies with everything completely. She is a very quiet girl but speaks softly with her eyes.”
Here’s a look at the bucket list created for Lala:
- Go on a treat shopping trip.
- Have a steak dinner.
- Have a salon day with a pedicure.
- Have her portrait painting done.
- Go on a picnic.
- Go out for doggy ice cream.
