Atlas’ final days

We lost our best friend Atlas, the most wonderful dog in the world, on May 20. He was 14 years old. Atlas had Cushing’s disease and degenerative myleopathy, and he needed special care. We are indebted to Dr. Susan Murphy and her staff at Best Friends Animal Clinic for making his final months easier to endure. Their compassion and sensitivity went beyond the call of duty. Susan never stopped trying until the end; she has a true calling. We extend our deepest gratitude to you all.
