I had to send my beloved Gretal to the Rainbow Bridge, yesterday, afternoon, and it was the hardest decision I had to make. May 8, 2007 – Sept. 19, 2022. She was a very strong dog to put up with our travels across the United States. She got to ride, peacefully, on my lap on a plane ride, played her heart out with blankets and basketballs. And never stopped loving me right to the end. She was 15.
