River + Fir


Our sweet Gilbert (a.k.a. Bertski Iam) is a few months from his tenth birthday. He is the sweetest, most empathetic dog ever. He really is such a special dog. And he is getting older, slowing down and the past couple weeks he’s been having some leg and hip discomfort. It is really hard to watch as this amazing athlete slows down. He doesn’t appear to be in pain, but we are limiting his activity to controlled walks and he no longer has to lay down before he gets dinner. He seems to wait for Savannah to investigate if that noise was really the treat bag or if we’re really going on a potty walk before he gets up. But as long as this sweet boy wants to, this will be his home. We’ll make a little ramp for the front stairs. We’ll come home more often for potty walks. We’ll love him forever and always. Sweet, Gilby.
