Gabe among the pine needles
It is with heartfelt sadness that we share the news that our beloved family pet, Gabe, has left this world to explore and chase in heavenly fields and forests. He was going to be 15 years old on St. Patrick's Day... but it was not to be. We have to believe there is a special place in heaven for faithful and dear companions and are are sure he has already picked out a favourite "sunny" spot. He would have never been a show dog - too big at 72 lbs, but he was a champion in our hearts. We were so blessed to have had the companionship and love of such a great dog. We know you dog owners and dog lovers understand the sorrow our family feels. Our son was 3 and daughter was 6 when we brought him home those many years ago, and we have all changed, grown and aged since that innocent age; and we couldn't have asked for a more suitable companion with whom to share all those amazing years that have flown by in the virtual blink of an eye. The beautiful, stubborn, smart, hairy, ornery, slobbery, gregarious Australian Shepherd, who loved to be with us and to lie in the sun on the pine needles in our back yard, will be sadly missed. Tears.
Blessings, the DeBoeser Family
