    Evergreens do lose their previous years leaves throughout the summer months ; this is a natural process . Are there any signs of fresh new growth at the tips of the branches ?
    During this dry spell , make sure it's kept watered well ; even after two-years the roots will still need a bit of 'encouragement' .
    Sorry to hear about your beloved old dog ; always a heart rendering experience :(
