Sad News From Charlie’s Dad

“It Is with my deepest sadness that I write and let you know that Charlie crossed The Rainbow Bridge last night.  Wednesday night he had a first seizure and I rushed him to the emergency room. Medication worked and he was fine and good all day Thursday.  Last night however Charlie had another in the middle of the night, I rushed him back to the Emergency room.  The doctors worked on him for 2 hours to no avail,  they did everything they could to save him. Charlie died in my arms, he was such a good baby I had him almost 5 years.  Charlie wanted for nothing if he needed something he got it . I am heartbroken

 I attached a picture of Mr. Charlie in his own Lawn chair. He was such a big joy to me.

Sadly,

Michael”

💔IN LOVING MEMORY OF ZEN FROM HIS BELOVED PARENTS💔

“It is with a very heavy heart I have said goodbye to my little guy today.  It’s only been less than 5 years we have been together but seems much longer.  I’ll never forget when you and your little brother came to me as fosters from Destiny For Dogs, JoAnn Goodrich!  Thank you for giving me the chance to give him his final forever home. You had such a rough life before.  I’m so glad I was able to give you the love and family you deserved these past few years.  Thank you Dr. Matthew Bond for taking such good care of my boy at the end so he didn’t suffer.  I will miss you always ZEN but for now run free!   Until we meet again.”
