GSRNE #245
2007 – 8/3/2018   

We’re sorry to report that Marshall crossed the Bridge on August 3, 2018, at the age of 11. In May he was diagnosed with nasal carcinoma. He had some chemo which held it in check for a short time, but his tumor started hemorrhaging and nothing more could be done. His loving family had to make the heart-wrenching decision to let him go, because Marshall had completely lost his “joie de vivre” and interest in food. He passed away while his family surrounded him, petting him.

Marshall had a great life, and he will be sorely missed. He was cremated and will be kept next to his dog pal Piper, who died a few months before him.

Adopted: November 8, 2008


GSRNE #246
2005 – 9/2018   

Our sweet boy Zago has passed away. He was 15 and had a tumor along with hip issues. He was a loving boy that put a smile on the face of every person he met. He and Lassie (his GSD sister) became close buddies, which was a joy to see. His wonderful greetings after a hard day at work are already missed. He passed quietly, with no pain. He lived an active happy life with a puppy-at-heart personality to the very end. All his friends were able to visit him to say farewell–including Lassie, which was pretty amazing (it was simultaneously adorable and heartbreaking to watch her give him kisses). I am comforted by the fact that he lived a long happy life. Thank you, GSRNE, for introducing Zago to us.

GSRNE #269

Password: Tasha

Tasha was adopted on 9/7/09 at age 10 and she died in May 2012 of multiple brain tumors. Her family adored her and did all they could to help her, including surgery to remove three of the tumors (one was inoperable). When it was time to let her go, she was surrounded by her loving family.

Tasha was bright, alert, lively, and quite a talker–if you talked to her, she was very chatty and loquacious in her responses! She had far more energy than her years, and she was simply beautiful. Rest in peace, sweet girl.

GSRNE #421
5/16/2007 – 2/10/2018   

We’re sorry to report that Gabby has crossed the Bridge. She stopped eating again a couple days ago so we took her to the vet, and she was bleeding internally again. The night before, Gabby was otherwise happy and had no trouble at all–she ate “a bunch” of meat, so she enjoyed her last night, thankfully. She was such a lovely and loving girl, and we are all are going to miss her terribly. We’re just so grateful that she had loving humans to dote on her and make her last few years full of love and comfort.

We are very sad to report that we had to say goodbye to Stacia. We held on to our excellent girl for perhaps too long, until finally her beautiful eyes spoke to us to let her go. We gave her the best life we possibly could, and she in turn gave us the best of life. We miss her so.

Adopted: May 7, 2009
