In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
We have such sad, devastating news to share… our Alabama foster, Bear, has passed away. His foster mom Natalie said he simply went out into the yard, laid down, then never got back up. It was incredibly tragic, but peaceful.
Bear came to rescue with two other hunting dogs in Alabama. He had heartworms and Osteoarthritis and we’re pretty sure he was older than 10. He was a senior and had never experienced indoor life or being loved. Well… he had SO MUCH love from his foster family and the night before he passed, Natalie said he was extra cuddly and couldn’t get enough of his humans. He might have sensed his end was near and he was saying his farewell and thanking his family.
Natalie said, “It’s true what they say…you never know when it will be the last time you see someone and I’m just so thankful that my last time with him was filled with lots of hugs and rubs. He was so happy and content. I asked for his paw print because I just loved his big ol paws and he was always standing on top of my feet with those paws.’
