Dante (Kent in rescue) – passed away October 20, 2017

It is with great sorrow that I have to let you know that Dante (adopted as Kent) has gone over the rainbow bridge. He was the sweetest and most loving dog ever. A cuddly boy who loved his routines: Got up at 6 AM to go for a run in the garden, always the same counter-clockwise turn, come in and have his breakfast. Go for a walk with his dog friend always on the hunt for something. We never got to learn his manners when putting his leash on, he was crazy happy to go out for his walks and jumped around until the leash was on. Then sleep and slumber during the day and whenever getting the opportunity he went for a run in his garden. He loved digging for mice… and dad always got stuck in a hole with the lawnmower. At night around 3 am he would sneak under the duvet cover and keep me warm. In his younger years, we would start the day with a 45 minutes run. He loved to run. In his retirement age, we had to take it easier but we would still go for a 5k run now and then. 6 months ago he got back pain and he was started on anti-inflammatories. He responded really well but then last week we noticed that he was needy and out of breath on his morning walks. On Friday evening when I got home he could not get up and the vet came to our house. We all got to say our goodbye and he passed with his family around him. We miss him immensely.

Thank you for all the fantastic work you’ve done for the GSPs!
