The thread title alone brought tears to my eyes. Robin, my heart aches for you. Bless you for providing the things Iker needed most at the time he needed them. May that be some comfort as you deal with this loss.

 

Iker, I salute you. You lived through hell and made it out, though you bore visible scars of that for the rest of your life. Through it all you remained your sweet, gentle self. You were a global traveler. You found a wonderful, loving home. You opened your heart to the person who brought you there and over time you learned to trust and have fun. You found another galgo friend and roommate, half a world away from where you both started. I believe you learned to feel safe, comfortable, happy and content. That is what we all want and all any of us really need. Run free, Iker, feeling safe and happy for all eternity.

 

Laura

Beautifully put, Laura...

Robin - I'll always love Iker - he was such a sweetheart... I'm so sorry...

Oh NO!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! I can't believe Iker left. My first thought was maybe there are 2 Iker's and this was a different one but no, I knew. And of course there is and will forever be only one Iker. I was just talking about him last week in reference to the World Galgo day. I will NEVER forget him.. He is always a super special one! I will never forget actually getting to meet him at the Shamrock Festival in Louisville so many years ago. He kind of made me awe struck just being that close to him-I really marvelled at his wonderful strong energy and despite all he had been through at the hands of humans I sensed a kindness and nobleness in him. It was clear though he had something that elevated him to a different level than most. My heart is breaking for you. I hope he sends you a sign. He deserves all the best. I know Rocket & Gilly Boy & Joe T. Reporter, and Slim & Seamie & George of New England & Princess Leia & the others---I can just see the whole entire gang living it up at the rainbow bridge. My deepest sympathy. If there is anything I can do don't hesitate to let me know. Hugs. Run free & fast precious Iker! Feel the freedom of the wind racing by :beatheart. :grouphug:weep

Robin, I'm just so heavy hearted and sad that Iker left. I will NEVER take his picture off our fridge. He's such a sweet, good, handsome boy and I love him so much. As Tricia said, we will toast him at Gettysburg. Hang in there, friend. XO

Just tuned in today. So sorry you had to say goodbye to your beautiful boy.

Looking at his photos I can see the wonderful strength of character Iker had/has.

He was so lucky to have known the love and compassion of humans...…………..HIS humans.

 

Feeling for you at such a sad time. :heart

We loved your shy, gentle boy, Robin. We are so sorry that he is gone. We will toast to him at Gettysburg. :heart

Such a beautiful picture of a beautiful soul. I am truly very sorry Robin. Your special boy came such a long way both physically and mentally it hurts to know he has left. To be honest I saw his name here last week and just closed my browser as it hurt to see it. Again so very sorry Robin.

 

Run free Iker, run free sweetie...
