It’s taken me 3 weeks and 1 day to work up the courage to write this and even now I still have a hard time accepting that this is real. There is an emptiness in our home without and a missing piece of our family. Gunner you were our first boy and for 12 years you were our best friend. When we found out you were going to be a brother to a human we weren’t sure how it was going to go but for 7 years you loved him unconditionally and spent your days play fighting with him and patiently letting him love you. You embraced your dads ambition to be the next Dog Whisper and from a young age picked up all of the tricks with ease. Your dad was the one who showed you the outside world, taking you for car rides, rolling your window down, to the river, or the park. No matter what excitement filled your day you and I always started and ended our days together. You were my shadow, my nap and cuddle buddy, you were my secret keeper and you were my comfort. No matter the distance or the time that passes you will always have a spot in our hearts and our home. You are forever loved and forever missed sweet boy.
