In Memory of
our beloved GSPs
Another SEGSP Alumnus has passed away… in 2014, Duke was found in Georgia by a sweet college girl who could not take care of him. He was heartworm positive and wasn’t neutered when entering rescue. He was super lucky to be fostered by Kristin and her family, who nursed him back to health, then found the perfect forever home for him.
In 2018 we received an update from his parents Tammy and Allen which said, ““Thank you so much for all you do for these sweet babies! We couldn’t imagine our life without our Duke Man!!!”
On Monday, Tammy sent the following to Kristin, “I just wanted you to know that today we said goodbye to Duke. Our sweet old man tried so hard to fight and be strong but he was just tired. On Tuesday of last week, he had his spleen removed due to a large mass. He was also suffering from autoimmune disorder and just so many things all at once. We thought on Friday he was going to beat it all. But yesterday, he turned south and by this morning, I knew he was ready. Allen, Gavin, and I loved-on him until his last breath. He did not suffer and was so very peaceful. Thank you so much for giving our family the best of all best friends. I can promise you he would never have had a family that would ever love him more than we do!!!”
We couldn’t agree more, Tammy! Thank you for giving Duke the love he deserved in his forever home.
