In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
A sad ending to the day… Our 2015 alumna Nutmeg has crossed to the Rainbow Bridge. She came to rescue at 7 years old and her new forever family gave her 7 more happy, loving years.
The start of her new life as a Held family member started with a scare of possible cancer but thankfully that was not the case, however she later struggled with several bouts of pancreatitis and other issues. Through it all her family took care of her, and gave her an adventure-filled life with lots of love and making beautiful memories.
From her mom Patty, “My precious Nutmeg left us on June 18th after a month-long struggle with dietary issues. She went peacefully at my Macon Vet’s office surrounded by me, my husband and her favorite stuffed bunny. Nutmeg was 14, and for the last 7 years she was an integral part of our family. We traveled to Marietta last month where she spent the day with my son, daughter and son-in-law as well as their dog and her best buddy, Lilly. My son-in-law was also her Vet, but his practice is in West Cobb. When the time came, I did not want to stress her by traveling 2 hours in the car. She was very familiar with my Macon Vet’s office as she had monthly “Spay Days” with her groomer, Sandy. Words are lost when describing the emptiness as I know you understand. It is of great comfort that she is out back. She was greatly loved.”
“We don’t love people and animals because we will have them forever; we love them because loving them changes us, makes us better, healthier, kinder, realer. Loving people and animals makes us stronger in the right ways and weaker in the right ways. Even if animals and people leave, even if they die, they leave us better. So we keep loving, even though we might lose, because loving teaches us and changes us.” Glennon Doyle
