We lost our handsome, most lovable dog, Gabe in the early hours of Sept 13. He passed in his sleep. We knew it was going to happen but when we found him the next morning, it was still hard and we cried and cried! He was the best dog ever and we still can't believe he is gone and we won't be caring for him anymore. He was 12 1/2 years old and survived cancer for 2 1/2 years. They told us he would only live about 3-6 months, but he proved them wrong!
We got him a few months after we were married in March of 96 and has been with us ever since. He was so happy and sweet, just wanting to be petted and be near us. I am thankful he is not in pain or miserable and he went in his sleep. I took a few pictures of him right before he died. I am posting the last 3 pictures I have of him alive and breathing.
We got him cremated and his ashes will be spread in the mountains of Woodland Park. It is comforting to know he will be in the mountains forever.
