We received very sad news... Our senior alumnus Louis has left this world, but he will never leave his dad’s heart.
Louis entered rescue in GA in 2020 after his person passed away. Then his foster/forever dad, Steven, endured the sudden loss of his beloved Daisy Duke (also a SEGSP alum). Updates from Louis’ dad were always sweet... Louis shredded a bed in his crate, so Steven got him a sturdier one. Louis was a bed hog (and could be cranky about it) when he wanted attention, but his dad just thought that was funny. We were reminded of the famous last line from “Casablanca” delivered by Humphrey Bogart’s Rick Blaine to Claude Rains’ Capt. Louis Renault, “Louis, I think this is the beginning of a beautiful friendship.” And it was…for a year and a half. A short time together, but packed with love. From Steven, He was a bed hog, an obsessive licker (of all things), a perpetual nap taker and a “damn good dog all around.”
