A Sad Day......It will be over three weeks since he has been gone. On July 14th, my male Weimaraner, Gus, was put to sleep. I knew it was coming—he was having more and more trouble walking and breathing. It was very peaceful. It was a sad moment, but Gus need not suffer anymore.
Gus was part of my life for 12 years and will be again. ‘But,’ you may ask, ‘do dogs go to heaven?’ The answer is yes. Why? Because God is generous, that’s why. When He shares the gift of life with His creation, it is never avariciously revoked.
Many have asked if Abby misses her brother. She does, from time to time, and will sit in his favorite spot.
