Gretta, a beautiful 12 year old lab, surrendered to the shelter when her owner was unable to care for her.  We couldn’t see this sweet senior live her last days, which we knew were limited, in this impersonal environment.  Luvin’ Labs is fortunate to have a group of fosters who are willing to open their hearts and homes to these special seniors with limited time.  Gretta found her forever home with Shannon, and while the time was short, the love Gretta gave and received was immense.
From her foster mom:  What a sweet girl we found in Gretta. Like many creatures, when advanced age and pain dominant our lives we are not always open to others company. Not Gretta, she was always ready to greet us when we came home from work and school. Gretta still loved the company of the kids even when they were noisy. 
Gretta had great determination. Even with her limited movement she would try to climb in places we didn’t think she could. All in an attempt to find comfort in her final days. Although her time as part of our family was not as long as we hoped. Gretta will always be in our hearts.
Run free of pain now Gretta…you were loved and you will be missed.  Thank you Shannon for making this pup’s last days so special.
