griffin...





well, the sad day has arrived, and griffin is no longer with us. we tried 3 different types of chemo and none worked. he went downhill fast. it was hard to take, but i'm glad he only had a few bad days and that we knew when it was time to let him go.

but let's remember the great times we had with the "old man puppy"! he was a big, shaggy, clumsy dog who thought he was a lap dog. he was full of joy. he had glorious eye brows.

ah hell, i've got 6 years of photos, blog posts, and videos. i tried to celebrated griffin every day, and i'll continue to do that with gilly and the next dog, and the next...

I'm sorry he's gone. This is a great post though. It's awesome you saved the adoption post =)

Being allergic to animals, I have to live vicariously through friends. Thank you for sharing the videos ... I got to laugh at stolen veggies and decimated stuffed frogs, awww at two K-9 friends snuggling on the dogbed, admire and respect the story of a dog who didn't have much until he was rescued by you and Dan and shed tears at his passing.

If I could own a dog I don't think I could ask for a better shaggy browed, cucumber munching, frog ripping, Gilly snuggling companion.

Thanks for sharing!!

thanks guys. it means a lot!

i look at his adoption post and i think, "well, now we have room for another dog deserving a better life."

not now, but someday...
