In Memory of GG 
Rescued May 20, 2009 - November 4, 2014 ( ~ Age 10)

It is with great sadness and a broken heart that I announce the passing of our beloved GG. GG was the greatest dog and inspired me to establish GG's Journey to help save homeless animals. I rescued her in May 2009 in Detroit, Michigan, on Maryland Street. We were told by the Michigan Humane Society that she was aggressive and unpredictable, but the truth was that she was one of the most loving and gentle dogs I’ve ever known! GG encountered many challenges on her journey to a healthy and happy life, partly due to being a pit-bull mix. Having survived on the streets of Detroit, her first major battle after her rescue was overcoming peritonitis, a very serious and often fatal condition that she contracted after being spayed. But she was a fighter, and after recovering from her health issues I worked to make sure that she would get to experience the life she deserved in her own forever home. In July 2009, Renee officially adopted GG. It was a joyous day that I will never forget! In April 2014, GG was diagnosed with anemia and they found a mass on her liver. She had a great summer, but her health began failing in the fall and she was hospitalized on November 3, 2014 for anemia and dehydration. On November 4, 2014, I said goodbye to GG and she crossed over to Rainbow Bridge.

Renee was the best mom and gave GG a wonderful life full of love and adventure. I am so grateful to her for allowing me, Aunt Cheryl, to be a part of GG's life throughout the years…we had many wonderful times together! We will go on in GG's spirit to help other animals and I know that she is watching our work from Rainbow Bridge. GG, you gave us so much love and joy! I love you and I will miss you greatly!!

She was truly a beautiful, gentle GG, a Gorgeous Gal!
