MerryChristmasDec

 

We need your help to Trim-the-Tree to help the dogs! 

You’ll be able to decorate our on-line GSRNE tree with your favorite ornaments,
choose one of the beautiful presents to place under the tree, or an angel to fly above it.

It’s a lovely way to celebrate the pets and people in your life now or remember the ones that have passed
away. You can also show your support for someone “nice” by putting a short message on Santa’s list.
We can’t wait to see what it ends up looking like this year!

Santa is holding a list of all the “good little (and big) girls & boys” that have helped us to Trim-the-Tree this year.
See all the decorations you can choose from to help to Trim-the-Tree (caution may load slowly!)

In loving memory of Ajax, GSRNE 363,
who shared his love and resilience with us
Merry Christmas from Jill and Morgan
In memory of Jim, Luna and Sterling
In memory or Shawnee, Wendy, Phoenix and
all the GSDs who have enriched my life
Remembering my husband, Chuck,

In loving memory of Jager, my heart dog
of courage and faithfulness! Forever, Mom

Lemme
GSRNE #458
12/02/2007 – 11/24/2017   

We are sad to report that Lemme has crossed the bridge on November 24. He had a tumor biopsied on October 28 and it was cancerous. He had other tumors that were not as large as that one, and his vet said it was Hemangiosarcoma. Lemme was a much loved boy who left us far too soon.

Maggie  &  Jolene
GSRNE #409  &  GSRNE #410
2003 – 9/2016  &  2007 – 11/13/2017 

I had to say goodbye to Jolene today. Her hips were very bad and her mobility had been deteriorating. After a very bad weekend in which she struggled terribly, I knew I needed to let her go.

Maggie was Jolene’s mom, and both were senior dogs when they came to live with me in July 2014. They were both such sweethearts. I lost Maggie in September 2016 to a heart condition. Jolene was not herself after losing her mom, but we adjusted as best we could. Jolene had serious hip issues when she came into the rescue, and with great support from GSRNE, we managed her issues as long as we could.

They were both so very special, and my time with them was too short. Adopting senior dogs was one of the best things I have ever done. They were such blessings in my life.

Ivy
GSRNE #254
~2005 – 7/31/2017   

Click for more photos of Ivy
Password: Ivy

Ivy was starving when she came to GSRNE–her owner didn’t know what was wrong with her and couldn’t afford the vet bills. GSRNE took her to the vet and found that she had EPI (Exocrine Pancreatic Insufficiency).

Ivy was adopted by a loving family on 2/28/09. She was 4 years old at the time, a gorgeous bi-color, medium-sized GSD. She was extremely good with most all dogs, but was decidedly NOT a cat person! She was a lovely, friendly, easy dog to have around.

Ivy’s family had to put her down due to health issues on July 31, 2017. They loved her dearly and still miss her. She was such a beautiful and sweet GSD.

Bear
GSRNE #213
2008? – 8/25/2017   

Click for more photos of Bear
Password: Bear

It is with great sadness that we were informed of Bear’s passing. He was diagnosed with hemangiosarcoma three weeks earlier, and the tumor was growing ferociously fast. His last day was filled with quality attention, coat brushing, a walk in the park with his doggie girlfriend KC, and cheese. He is greatly missed, and the house feels far too empty without him.

Update on 8/29/2017:

I think we just passed the 3 month mark with Chance and he’s become such an integral part of our lives, we can’t remember what things were like

Chance with his beloved jolly ball

without him.  He has gotten better being around men and boys and he is devoted to our boys, who cherish him.  Our younger son, Sam, has even taught him new trick –
High 5. We have settled into a routine with a couple daily walks, play time outside with his beloved Jolly Ball, and hang out time with us.  We’ve gone to the local dog park a couple of times and, while he is curious
about the other dogs and gets along with them, he eventually comes back to stand by us and observes the other dogs playing.  We’ve had many friends and family over and Chance has learned to welcome them
after his initial typical GS barkfest.  They are all amazed at what an incredibly great dog he is, so smart, devoted, and playful. He’s had a couple vet visits at home.  He’s definitely not a fan of the vet but we’ve gotten through them.  Based on her advice, he has put on a few pounds and he seems to be at a good weight, which he maintains with his walks and Jolly Ball play.
I’ve attached a couple of photos – he just would NOT look at the camera for our selfie so I’ve included the best one we had.  And one that shows his devotion to his Jolly Ball.
We feel really lucky to have Chance as part of our family now.  We love this guy!

Adopted on 06/11/2017

Bio: 

When we asked his foster Mom what makes Chance delightful, she wrote,”He is very loving and loves to cuddle. He talks to me in this very deep baritone voice, so funny.  He loves to play in the y

ard, and he is an absolute joy to walk…no pulling or tugging.  He listens well to commands and respects my home.”

Chance warmed up to his foster Mom right away, but it took him a few days longer to trust his foster Dad.  When meeting new people, especially men, Chance is unsure and wary.  He is very aware of people and sounds when out for a walk and is more comfortable walking where there’s not a lot of noisy traffic.

In his foster home, Chance is living with a female German Shepherd named Molly.  He gets along well with her, and we were told that he lived with other dogs in a previous home.  He’s actually had two previous homes before foster care; his first owner gave Chance to a relative, and she didn’t have permission from her landlord to have a GSD.  As a result, she took Chance to a humane society.  Because he was so nervous and uncomfortable there, GSRNE was called and asked to move him out of that environment before he hurt himself trying to get out of his pen.

Chance has learned to stay in a crate while his foster parents are at work, but he has chewed up a crate pad, a blanket and managed to get his collar off and chew that up.  He now has his collar removed before he stays in his crate.  When his people come home from work, Chance is overjoyed to see them and ready to play. He especially loves his jumbo Jolly Ball, in the backyard, and his stuffed beaver toy, in the house.  He also enjoys riding in the car and stays in the back part of the family’s SUV.

When he first came to GSRNE, Chance was underweight and had itchy skin; with a change to a good quality food and the addition of a medication (Apoquel), Chance has put on weight, is less itchy and is ready to meet his forever family.
