I wanted to share with you that we just had to put to sleep our GSP that we adopted from your organization 7 years ago. His name with your organization was Einstein and we renamed him Mason when we adopted him. Just this last week we lost Mason but I know that we gave him the best life a GSP could dream of. He live on 6 acres with a big pond that he swam in daily, he hunted gophers and chased birds. We also have a female GSP and a female Rottweiler that were his sisters. His self-appointed job was to bark at anyone that might walk by even if they walked by EVERY SINGLE DAY for the last 7 years. The neighbors expected him to run out barking at them and if he didn’t they would ask where he was. He loved to bird hunt, even though we did not adopt him for hunting, my husband took him out a handful of times to see if he knew what to do and BOY DID HE. He was at some point in his life before us someone’s bird dog. Even though he loved to hunt birds he never touched a feather on any of my free-range chickens. He knew the difference. He was great with our children and we loved him very much. We think he was around 14 years old. I still can’t believe he is gone. He was my constant companion, always with me when I would be out on the property.
