Guenther MemorialHi ABR,
I want to thank you for all of the work that you do to find boxers like my Guenthy a good home. I adopted him only 7 months ago, but he had a tremendous place in my heart and in my life when he passed away yesterday afternoon, July 7, 2010. I would like to share this note I wrote for him with you.
Dear Guenther,
In just 7 months I was completely and utterly in love with you. I never felt alone knowing that I would come home and be greeted with your hugs (literally you hugged me!!) and kisses. No matter how bad my day was, you always made me smile as you ran towards me with a wagging butt, wagging tail stub, and big slobbery smile as on your face. I already miss you so much. Showers just aren’t the same without my guardian moving the shower curtain to make sure momma is still doing ok (and maybe sneak a sip of shower water –ew guenthy boo-boo!). . I’m going to miss you so much when I find myself sitting out on the porch or on my couch without my cuddle bug right at my side. I will always remember you when I wait for the sunset – that was our favorite time to walk and explore our world together.
You were my protector. You were my companion. You were my best friend. I am grateful that I was there to say goodbye to you, but I wish you didn’t have to go. I know that if you could have stayed with me you would have. You fought until the very end, Guenther – my warrior, and mamma is so proud of her baby. Momma looooves yooou!!!
I will miss you and love you forever.
Love always,

has gone cycling on according to the fixed laws of gravity, from so simple a
beginning endless forms most beautiful and most wonderful have been, and are
being, evolved.” – Darwin, 1859
