In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
Another sad post – we lost our 2011 alumnus Chip on January 24th to geriatric vestibular syndrome. His family made the agonizing decision to let him go when his symptoms were too much for Chip to handle.
Chip came to rescue after the shelter notified SEGSP that his owner was not caring for him properly and they were not returning him (Chip had visited the shelter many times and had been found under a bush in the snow – the final straw). Chip hit the jackpot that day!
From the moment his foster dad Greg picked him up, to the moment he left this earth, Chip was loved and treasured unconditionally by Ed, Diane and their entire family. Diane would buy London broil and hand-feed him a little bit at a time as a snack each day - for 10 years. He learned quickly that he could get cuddles at any time he wanted and soon took over the bed, knowing his parents wouldn’t object (they would just readjust). And since they didn’t know his exact birthdate, Ed and Diane’s granddaughter told Chip he could share her birthdate with her, May 24th, and they celebrated together every year.
Yeah, we know Chip was one of the lucky ones and was loved every single day of his life.
Run pain-free sweet Chip…
