It is with a heavy heart that I bid farewell to the kindest dog I have ever known.

We were blessed to have known Gnasher for about 12 years. He passed away peacefully in my arms last Friday morning. I couldn’t announce it earlier because we wanted to tell our daughters first.

I shall always remember him with fondness, and don’t think that any other dog will ever fill the huge void he has left behind. We are all saddened by his passing, but really do appreciate the time he has spent with us.

Rest in peace my friend. I shall miss you.

    Gnasher was a very lucky dog indeed to have had such a loving family. I remember spotting him in your photo’s/videos. We brought 2 BSPCA dogs and several cats to Spain from Bahrain almost 20 years and acquired another couple of Alsation (types!) during our time there.. sadly they are no longer with us. Wonderful dogs, loyal to the end.

    Adieu, Gnasher, whom I hope is in the Great Beyond, chasing cars and squirrels. And CATCHING them!

    Oh No Mahmood, you must all be devastated. Hate to think how the young’uns are taking it.

    The best thing I can think of, is you buy a little exercise book for each of you, so you can all write down everything you remember about him, how you feel, how you miss him, funny little things he used to do. Everything you want to write gets written, because there is no rule about whether or when it is to be read.

    It helps, especially with children, but also with adults. They get anxious in case they ever forget any of those details about him. The sound of his welcome, can be written as notes on a stave. Then you can always summon that memory back.

    The book of Gnasher.

    I’m sorry for your loss. I had 3 dogs die on me, I know how it feels.
