GSRNE #368
2012 – 12/27/2017   

It is with a broken heart and deep sadness that I let you know that our beloved princess Addie (GSRNE #368) crossed the Rainbow Bridge tonight.

Addie was diagnosed on December 5th with cancer–suspected lymphoma. On December 7th we took her to the clinic and started chemotherapy. She did not respond well, and after two weeks of treatment and additional weight loss, it was determined that she did not have lymphoma but more than likely histiocytic sarcoma–an extremely aggressive cancer that does not respond well to treatment. We weren’t ready to give up ; we were hopeful that we could get another month or two with her. So the chemotherapy was changed and a new type started, but it did not help. She stopped eating and drinking. On December 23rd we rushed her to the hospital, but she was in cardiac arrest by the time we arrived and we had no choice but to let her go.

Addie was an amazing dog who loved her family. She spent her days with me in my home office, on her bed under my desk, or in the lounge chair next to me. In the evenings we would cuddle on the couch and watch TV. She was so very loving and affectionate. She loved her brothers and even though she was the smallest of the three, she certainly let them know that she was the boss. She was my constant companion and I am not sure what I will do without her–I lost a piece of my heart when she left us.
Her life was cut short (she would have been 6 years old in May). I am not sure why, but God must have his reasons. We only had 4½ years with her, but she knew she was loved every single day.

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 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.

GSRNE #213
2008? – 8/25/2017

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


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.
