Dear Lab Friends,
It is with a heavy heart that we had to say goodbye to our precious pup of nearly five years, Gertie. She was 8 years young & named Gracie when she entered your rescue late summer 2017. We adopted her that August. She had recently celebrated her thirteenth birthday (March 22) and was doing well despite years of being diagnosed with back troubles. Her rear legs began to weaken soon after her birthday and were ultimately unable to support her.
She was happy and upbeat until the end; we will forever love and cherish her as our “glass half full” companion. We miss her terribly but find comfort in knowing that she is free of pain and suffering. Thank you for the vital role you played in placing her within our lives. We are all better people because of her.
The Hamilton family
