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.
