"I believe that imagination is stronger than knowledge,
Myth is more potent than history,
Dreams are more powerful than facts,
Hope always triumphs over experience,
Laughter is the cure for grief,
Love is stronger than death."
|Gunner and Rubi|
While my heart is broken, I know his suffering is done and, he is well and happy playing with our sweet Rubi, our Great Dane whom we lost last year.
Gunner - You brought so much joy, laughter, and love to our little family. You will be loved and missed always.
And, in my husbands words:
He is now back with Rubi, and my good friend Big Dave, whom I originally got Gunner from almost 10 years ago. I know he is happy now, running, jumping, swimming, and playing to his heart's content. He was the perfect dog, and we will miss him greatly, but I know I will see him again, and we will never have to be separated again.
Below is a picture of him from September 2004, just about 6 months after I got him. He LOVED going Jeeping, and put thousands of miles on his feet running the trails behind my Jeep. Even after he got older, and couldn't run the trails anymore he always wanted to, and would always give me that look when I would go out Jeeping without him. I am grateful for the time I had with him, for he made my life better by him being in it.
Godspeed old friend, I love you, and look forward to the day when we'll be reunited.
