Bart Is Running Free

I just received word from Susie at GALT that Bart, one of their injured reserved dogs, has gone. Here is part of her email:

------------------

 

GALT and Ty and Jeff (foster mom and dad) lost Bart (aka Breeze) yesterday afternoon. Bart was 10 years old and had been treated for heartworms almost 2 weeks ago. He seemed to be doing okay, staying very quiet, but as we all know can happen, it is very, very probable that a worm clot broke away from his heart. Ty and Jeff were able to get him to Dr. Ellis, but he only made it a few minutes after then. Bart came to us as a stray almost 5 weeks ago, and we can all say without a doubt that these last weeks were his best; to be in a home where he was loved and cared for so gently.

 

Please join me in sending Ty and Jeff our condolences; as we all know about fostering---they do become yours, in all our hearts. In fact, Ty and Jeff had decided to make him one of their own officially….but I know he knew he was in his forever home.

As the foster mom of another GALT pup undergoing heartworm treatment, this is hitting close to home. Please hug your hounds and say a little prayer for Bart.

I'm so sorry. I don't think it's the length of time you know a dog that matters, it's how much of your heart he's claimed as his own. Condolences to Ty and Jeff.

 

Goodbye, handsome Bart.

What a brave boy you've been Bart. I hope the last few weeks have more than made up for whatever else you've gone through. I just know you're glowing now, sweet boy! God bless the wonderful people who have truly cared for you.

I feel sad for them all. What a beautiful dog. It's an amazing gift to be able to love these dogs -- even for a short time.

I am so sorry. God speed sweet Bart. :angelwings:gh_lay:angelwings

Greyhound angels at the bridge- Casey, Charlie, Maggie, Molly, Renie, Lucy & Teddy. Beagle angels Peanut and Charlie. And to all the 4 legged Bridge souls who have touched my heart, thank you. When a greyhound looks into you eyes it seems they touch your very soul.

My heart is so sad for Ty and Jeff. I'm sure that Bart was well-loved and cherished during his stay in their home, and knew that he was so very special. He is whole and joyful now. May their hearts heal quickly, comforted by his loving spirit.

Run Free Sweet Bart.. there are a lot of friends waiting for you at the bridge.

We need to act responsibly toward the plants and animals with whom we share the world, who have no voice, but whose presence make our world a blessed place.
