One morning, Linda recalled Get Lo acting “really strange”, because of his kidney problems. She remembered: “We had a doctor come over. He said: ‘I don’t think the dog will make it through the night.'”
Elvis was not going to let his dog die without a fight. He quickly got on the phone to rent a plane and get his dog the best medical help he could afford.
Linda explained: “Elvis leased a Learjet and flew Get Lo, my girlfriend Jeannie LeMay and me, and the doctor up to Boston to a special clinic for kidney dialysis.”
Elvis left Get Lo at the clinic for around three months, But the story would not have a happy ending.
