Lacee passed away on September 29, 2023 peacefully at 2:00 p.m., while laying in my arms. She was a wonderful companion always waiting by the door for me when I would come home, even during her last week of life when she was getting sicker. If I was not feeling well, she would be there for me and put her head next to where I was hurting. Such a gentle giant, especially with the other dogs, some were her brother and sisters. She was 18 1/2 years.
