  1. I feel so sorry for your loss. I have four dogs who I’m close too, and the inevitable, I will have to face at some point. I am grateful for the comfort they give.

    There is a great quote by J.M. Barrie — ‘God gave us memory so that we might have roses in December.’

    Whenever it’s cold, may you warm yourself with Gideon’s memories.

  2. Our Hearts are with you. Biggest Hugs! There are not words, only LOVE.

  3. I’m sorry for your loss, dear Kate. Your Gideon looks like Love, embodied in fur and liquid eyes. His heart is with you, always.

  6. So very sorry to hear of your loss Kate, I know you love your doggies. Gideon was a handsome lad. Let your tears be healing to your heart

  7. Thank you, everyone. Today is hard, and tears await around every corner. I am lucky to have had Rock Knocker volunteer to handle this for me. The last time I took G to the vet, he was so miserable due to the long drive, couldn’t walk when we got there, and had to spend the night in order to be able to get back home. Today, he got to stay home and be laid to rest here. He will always be with me.

  9. Oh, Kate…I’m so very sorry for your loss. I have tears in my eyes right now. I lost my beloved 10 year old Rottie/Lab Pete not long ago, and I feel you pain and sadness. Hugs to you..

  10. There is nothing like the unconditional love we receive from our dogs throughout our lives. I know the heartbreak and loss you are feeling.
    Sending you my condolences for the passing of Gideon. He must have had 15 wonderful years roaming the South Coast mountains!

  11. dear kate….what a beautiful animal and I’m almost certain a dear friend …many blessings…xo laurie…………………..

  12. what a handsome fellow. he is loved in time and spirit. enjoy the memories.
    i play with your snowflakes each day. thank you.
    greetings to winter solstice and for the new year ahead.

  13. The unconditional love of a handsome boy named Gideon – it doesn’t get much better than that. Peace to you Kate as you navigate your daily life without him. I am so sorry.

  14. We know the feeling having just lost our Magic. The rainbow bridge is EXACTLY how we view it… our pride of kitties are waiting for us and taking care of each other until we are all together. Your Gideon is surely there waiting for you but, if you are at all like us, his spirit stays around and watches over you until then. Our condolences

  15. Unconditional love, knowing us better than our human friends and waiting to lend a paw and a lick through good times and bad. Where would we be without them? I’ve got Bugsy…described as follows: “He knows more than you think…and thinks more than you know.”
    Bugs and Karl offer a tip of the hat to Gideon, who enriched Kate’s days on a level that only those two would understand. He will rest in peace.

  16. I am so sorry , my dog max is 21 and slowing down a lot with arthritis and I know the day is coming. Take care.

  17. So sorry to hear about your loss of your 4 legged friend, Gideon. May the memories and Rainbow Bridge ease the pain.
