Bishop
GSRNE #324
6/1/2007 – 5/7/2016  

Bishop was adopted in July 2011.  He was 4 years old then, having just celebrated his birthday on June 1st.  From the moment he set a paw in our home, we fell in love with him.  We took him everywhere dogs were allowed, and he was a true companion.  He loved going anywhere in the car (even to the vet), but especially for ice cream–yum!  We also took him to obedience training where he received his CGS.  His trips to the local nursing home brought great joy to the residents.  We (both of his caregivers) faced illness of our own during the time we had Bishop, and he always knew which of us needed his hugs and kisses.  He was such a comfort.  We walked 2 miles each day, and Bishop made lots of friends along the way.  During the colder winter months, we walked the cross-country track near our middle school.  Every day we played “hide-n-seek,” and Bishop became a great tracker.

On February 15, 2016, Bishop was not himself.  He needed emergency surgery for Hemangiosarcoma, so he had his spleen removed, but the prognosis was not good. Bishop crossed the Rainbow Bridge on May 7, 2016, just short of his 9th birthday.

He was our happiest “Good Morning,” our comforting “Good Night,” and our saddest “Good Bye.”

We miss him so very much.
Roger and Diane
