Gopher Provides Therapy for Bert Our Newest Foster

Gopher, Squirrel, Carla and I  recently took in a foster. Bert the 5 month old Golden Retriever. Bert is in our care for hospice, his kidneys failed to develop. We could not help but see the reflections from the past. 

Reflections of The Past

Graham with Gopher and Squirrel, Graham was also a foster, he was a senior with Chronic Kidney Failure. Squirrel and him were the best of friends. When he grew weak as his time approached Gopher provided therapy for his little brother and it was chronicled here: Gopher Therapy Dog to More than Just Humans: The Story of Squirrel and Graham and Me

Bert with Gopher and Squirrel, Bert is our new hospice foster. Much like with Graham he has no certain expiration date, much like Graham, Squirrel and him became fast friends. Gopher who is typically not much for pups is even actively playing with him, seems to know there is something wrong and is overlooking the fact he is a puppy. Unlike Graham he is in hospice care before his first year of life. Bert is a happy going eager puppy, and we will care for him providing the highest quality of life possible until his time comes.

We do need the help of the public.
