Serena was the love of my life. She was a muscular, powerful brave Lab/Boxer who literally saved my life on more than one occasion. We shared a bond unlike any I’ve ever had before with an animal or human. She was diagnosed with lung cancer Thanksgiving 2009, went through 12 chemo treatments that did not work, put on 30 lbs and still wanted to play ball, give me love and companionship. Serena was alpha all the way and trained me well. I anticipated what she wanted and was pleased to fetch anything she wanted. I had to put her down Sept. 27th, 2010...my grief remains and the loss of her friendship has taken away a little bit of my soul, as I sent it on with her. I love Serena and hope she is free of pain and is waiting for me at the Rainbow Bridge.
