"We found out two months ago that Sophia's got bone cancer," said Sophia's owner Alyson Paige in a Press Association video.
Bone cancer can be painful for a dog's joints and discouraging for their spirits. Like many other dogs, Sophia grew fatigued and disinterested in many things in life as her cancer grew.
"She's not really shown any interest in anything for a couple of weeks now," Paige said in the video. "She absolutely loves the snow, and I've been searching for ideas, something to make the last time that we've got with her really special."
Paige said the lovable dog Sophia was a "big support" to her as she went through infertility treatment. She wanted to return the favor for Sophia as she faced her own illness, so Paige "cheekily" sent an email to Chill Factore requesting that her dog be allowed to visit.
Paige didn't immediately hear back from the company and decided to arrange for a vet to put Sophia down as her condition worsened. On the very day of Sophia's appointment, Paige received a response from Chill Factore: They wanted Sophia to play in the snow.
How'd the day go?
