Much to the heartbreak of her parents, Laci peacefully passed this morning under a shower of kisses in the arms of her Mom & Dad, joining Papa George for hikes in the beyond. Laci chose her folks one week before her third birthday, just two miles from her mom’s childhood home outside of North Manchester, IN, when they visited the Rescue initially interested in another pup. Sensing the kind-looking man would be good company and spoil her rotten, Laci walked up and sat herself in his lap there in the yard – and became Laci K that very day. Born and registered as Lacey Crystel, the new parents christened her Queen Victoria’s Laci Corset – a fancy purebred name that was a little haughty, a little tawdry: Laci (Laci K, baby bear, ladybug) for short. Laci was skilled at escaping the confines of a gated kitchen to roam around the house while her parents were away and greeting them at the door after work. She soon learned the joys of barking at neighbors and, during walks, notifying those on the other side of the street who was Princess of the Block. She enjoyed playing with her cousins Hanna and Harvey; writing her best friend and pen-pal from Japan, Genevieve; and eating corn on the cob, watermelon, chicken, cheese...anything directly from her humans’ plates. A well-traveled lady, Laci excelled at riding on laps in the car, visiting Michigan and Washington D.C. on multiple occasions. She also traveled to Gettysburg, Frederick, Williamsburg, Toronto and Ottawa, Canada, as well as all five Great Lakes. As she matured, Laci’s work included greeting hundreds of Indiana State Fair Queen Pageant contestants over several years, patrolling the barnyard and the entire Laci Acres property, her namesake in rural Yorktown, IN. She was best at keeping her mom & dad company with snuggles, giving kisses, being carried like a toddler, and always, but always being cute and defending her pack. Mommy and Daddy love Laci so very much and miss her terribly. Always in our hearts, little girl.
