Long-time friends of the sanctuary, Lisa and Rich Stuverud, sponsored this beautiful day of sanctuary in memory of their precious Labrador, Layla.
“Layla was born on May 5th, 14 years ago and we knew she was ours to love from day one. It was true unconditional love. Her passing is still quite raw in our hearts and minds. We always celebrated her birthday and it just seems right to continue celebrating her life and sharing our love for her with our love for CSNW…she was with us when we read the blogs, she watched and listened to many a pant hooting video with the classic dog head tilt, she made every road trip to the sanctuary with us and waited patiently in the “Lab Cab” while we dropped off chimpanzee enrichment and food favorites. We just want to share and celebrate unconditional love today. We hope everyone gets to experience it at some point in their lives.”
Lisa and Rich, we’re sending our deepest condolences for the loss of your beloved family member, Layla. Thank you so much for allowing us to celebrate what a special being she was with you and for sharing something beautiful to smile about as we envision her through your heart. We’re so happy to know she was part of the chimps’ extended family!
