Gatsby was our first fur baby. He was found in August 19, 2014 running the streets with matted fur. Sonoma Humane Society brought him in and nursed him back to health. We don’t know how old he was exactly, but they estimated and gave him a birthday of February 19th. They named him Tucker, but we knew that would never work. And it truly didn’t matter, since he was deaf.
We felt so blessed that he came into our lives. He brought us and our family and friends unimaginable joy. He didn’t care for other dogs but he was always down for cuddles, ear scritches, butt scritches, and the occasional Goldfish.
We’ll never forget your sleep yips and barks, your random calf licks as we would walk around the house, the jingle of your collar as you came up the stairs.
There were a lot of human foods he ignored, but you couldn’t leave him alone with pizza rolls or roast beef sandwiches from Arby’s.
When it was time, we brought him a roast beef sandwich, which he enjoyed and made us cry hysterically.
We were told that we were taking on his pain so he didn’t have to hurt anymore. We love you baby boy, we’ll see you again soon.
