Cheddar Grits was not only a wonderful dog, but such an integral part of his loving family.  Losing Cheddar is exceptionally challenging for CLR. We hold his family close to our hearts, and for years they have been a dedicated part of the CLR family.  They were completely devoted to Cheddar as well as their precious Chutney, a CLR alum, and provided him such a loving home for 9 years. He passed peacefully in their arms and found peace after a recent decline from a progressive illness. They dearly miss their loyal, gentle giant, yet it was their deep love for Cheddar that guided them on this journey.  We share their sadness and hope wonderful memories provide some light as they mourn their boy.  RIP Cheddar Grits
