In Memory of Nanuk: Rich and Greg's Faithful Companion

Nanuk and Rich, May 3, 2013
Our friends Rich and Greg are dog lovers. They've had two dogs, one big lovable dog named Talon who passed a couple of years ago, and a second named Nanuk who was a husky. Today, May 3, 2013 was a difficult day for Rich and Greg, as their ailing, senior dog (I think he was 15!), Nanuk joined Talon in the afterlife. Nanuk loved sitting outside watching the world go by. He enjoyed the sunshine, and loved his Beggin' Strips bacon treats. This morning, Rich took a last picture with his faithful dog before going to the vet. I saw this picture and it brought tears to my eyes. Like Rich and Greg feel, our dogs are our children. Our hearts go out to them during this time of loss. We know that Nanuk is sitting on the grass, soaking in the sunshine next to his canine brother Talon. Our deepest sympathies to you both.

Gift/Memorial Suggestions

Several of our friends have lost loved ones (human and pets) and we found that one of the best ways to honor their memory is to give to an animal charity.
What better way to recognize a life of love, than by giving another life a chance for love?
We donate to many animal rescues, but because we volunteer with
DC Weimaraner Rescue and Coast-to-Coast Dachshund Rescue, those are our 2 favorites.
Consider giving the chance of life to a dog or cat.
