Do it for Shacknews Award 2022 - Lola
I was going to include this piece in the list above, but wanted to give it a bit more space for me to write about. Shacknews lost Lola in 2022. Her passing hit us all hard. When thinking about our nominees for our annual Do it for Shacknews Award, there was no doubt in our minds who should receive this award. Please, take a look at the video above and then go and spend some time with your own beloved furry friend. We love you and miss you Lola.

So sorry to hear about the loss of Lola. Our pals bring us so much joy & ask so little in return. My sincere condolences. :(
