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

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.

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.
