I joined this forum 13 years ago when we brought our first lab home as a puppy in 2002. We wanted our son to grow up with a dog, and that's exactly what happened. Gibson made the perfect companion, confidante, and best friend.
We tried for a year to help him with his bad hip. Meds, PT, massage. It progressively got worse, then came liver problems and we could tell he wasn't comfortable, no matter what we tried. We decided to let him go to the Rainbow Bridge before it got any worse. It was the hardest decision I've ever had to make. On January 24th we said, "See you on the other side." We miss him terribly, but remain thankful we had him to love for 13 years. The best part: He loved us back.
This is the very first, and the very last pictures of Gibson with his boy, Nate.
