Sir Ivanhoe aka Gizmo
June 24, 2009-June 17, 2020
Our beautiful, sweet boy crossed the rainbow bridge this morning. I know his Mama Pat was waiting for him.
We first met Gizmo when we fostered him for a month before he joined Pat. He was a very frightened, shy boy so he stayed with us until he got used to being around strangers. He didn’t come with a call name so Pat gave the honor of naming him to Kevin. Kevin said he had gremlin ears so he named him Gizmo. I promised Pat that if anything ever happened to her we would bring Gizmo back home and after Pat had her stroke and could no longer care for him Mike drove to Philadelphia and brought him back home.
He never ran a race, but he did get the chance to stand on the Southland track one year when we took him and his littermate Bandita to a reunion.
He was our sweet cuddly boy, so playful and would eat you out of house and home if you let him.
The Chondrosarcoma in his leg metastasized to his brain and the greatest gift we could give him was to let him go. His 11th birthday is next Wednesday but we could not let him suffer until then. His name will be on the birthday cake we get for Bandita.❤️
Much love and thanks to our wonderful vet Dr. Hezel who has been by our side during this journey with Gizmo. She diagnosed him a year ago in April and we were gifted another 14 months with him. Thank you so much Alisha for always being there for us.❤️
We love you now and always Gizmo and will see you again.❤️
