Remembering "Libby"

September 19, 2020 --

Libby was mercifully put to sleep the afternoon of September 8, after a long, slow acting illness, that finally deprived her of the ability to get up or walk.   

Libby was a beautiful golden retriever, born  March 4, 2007.  She was 13 and a half years old, owned by LPR's dear friends Howard and Debbie Jonas.  She was, certainly, the best dog friend to Lenox.   

Libby loved the attention of people.  She would socialize with the other dogs in Henry Hudson Park, but when she stayed with LPR and was taken to Manhattan dog runs, she and Lenox just stayed together and near LPR rather than mingle.  She was a very intelligent dog and knew the way from the Jonas residence to LPR's apartment building.  She also knew a fascinating way to wake up LPR on days she stayed overnight.   She would wake LPR up by her sheer presence at the side of the bed. 

Lenox and Libby …

LPR would open his eyes and find Libby standing at the edge of the bed, smiling that it was time to get up and take her out.

When she was younger, she loved to trot around the Central Park reservoir, looking quite regal at the same time.  In short, Libby was a very special dog and will be sorely missed. RIP dear Libby.
