It is with a heavy heart that I share the news of Lux’s passing. He was in severe distress last night when we brought him into emergency, and we had little time to make a very difficult decision. Lux was almost 12 years old, and we could not ask any more from him after all the years of love he had given to us.
He came to us as a foster 8 years ago, as GSRNE rescue dog #257. He worked his way into our hearts and home immediately, and we just could not let him go. Lux was the light of my daughter’s life and she took him everywhere! We were truly blessed to have Lux with us for his time here and will forever miss his good-natured and loving spirit. If you met him, it was impossible not to love him! We are forever thankful to GSRNE for bringing Lux into our lives. We are all the richer for having shared this part of the journey with him.
With love and sadness,
Lux’s original write-up:
Lux loves being with his family. He loves to go for walks and play ball in the back yard with the other dog in the foster home, Shiloh. It seems Lux’s favorite game sometimes is “keep away” from Shiloh. Lux is a very smart dog, he knows his commands and he listens very well.
Lux is a little imp and a big lug with very expressive eyes. We say he has clown eyebrows. The way he looks at you, you know something is on his mind. Most of the time we know what that is. When you walk with him he will turn and touch his nose to your leg, his way of “checking” on you to make sure you are there. Play ball with him and you have a friend for life.
Lux also loves to go for long walks, and likes his car rides, and at the end of the day he will curl up at your feet and go to sleep. Lux is also a couch potato, when he is in his room where a couch is, I will catch him sound asleep on it.
Lux will bark at new people, but we are working on that, and he is fine when he gets to know you.
Lux is great with people he knows. Give him a treat and he is a happy guy.
Lux needs a nice family home with someone who can work on his greeting with people. He loves kids and does well with the dogs he has met after a proper introduction. He is a big lug that just wants to be around you.
