"A moment of happiness matters for everyone"

To have seen the young couple and their dog posing on the beach and at the Rose Garden in Duluth last weekend, you might have thought they were getting engagement photos taken. 

Which is ironic, because Tria and Phil Isaacson eloped to Duluth last fall.  The Brainerd couple chose  to spend the money they would have spent on their wedding to provide treatment for their four year old dog, Lilah.

Lilah got cancer.  Then in went into remission.

Now it's back.

But the non-profit Live Like Roo Foundation understands what they're going through. One of the ways they support people and their companion animals at this time is through an arm of the foundation that helps folks make a bucket list for their beloved four-legged ... and start checking things off it.

You can find out more about the Live Like Roo Foundation and its various offshoots, including the Booker Fund, here.

Sammie Hofkes of Studio 310 was the photographer for Lilah's photoshoot.

Lisa Johnson started her broadcast career anchoring the television news at her high school and spinning country music at KWWK/KOLM Radio in Rochester, Minnesota. She was a reporter and news anchor at KTHI in Fargo, ND (not to mention the host of a children's program called "Lisa's Lane") and a radio reporter and anchor in Moorhead, Bismarck, Wahpeton and Fergus Falls.Since 1991, she has hosted Northland Morning on KUMD. One of the best parts of her job includes "paying it forward" by mentoring upcoming journalists and broadcasters on the student news team that helps produce Northland Morning. She also loves introducing the different people she meets in her job to one another, helping to forge new "community connections" and partnerships.Lisa has amassed a book collection weighing over two tons, and she enjoys reading, photography, volunteering with Animal Allies Humane Society and fantasizing about farmland. She goes to bed at 8pm, long before her daughter, two cats, or three dogs.
