Poogan crossed the Rainbow Bridge on December 29th 2023 from a collapsed trachea. He was 16 years old. Poogan came into the family after he was rescued from a puppy mill. Poogan was rescued by me 16 years ago from a puppy mill. What I didn’t know was at the time, he actually was gonna be the one who was gonna save me in the end as I suffered from depression. He was an energetic soul who was bound to bring happiness to anyone who encountered his presence. My favorite memories were his love for snow. He would push the snow up in the air with his cute little nose and make mommy run through snow to catch him because he didn’t want to come out of the snow. Poogans favorite thing was playing with his toys. Only thing is he would go fetch the toy but never quite grabbed the concept to bring it back. He was so funny about this! Poogan as I write this, I hope you know how loved you were and I hope that until we meet again you are playing across the rainbow bridge with God and all the other precious puppy’s I myself and others heartbreakingly lost. As you took your last breath I was so glad you took it as I held you and told you I was sorry I couldn’t do any more but just let you rest in peace now, my sweet precious baby. Mommy misses you so much but I know that you were tired. Dr. Raper and Dr. Walsh thank you so much for all you did for Poogan. I struggle right now feeling I didn’t do enough due to financial reasons but the thing is, I wasn’t judged for it, but instead you guys showed compassion and did what you could to help my baby just be comfortable in his last days. Me and Poogan will always have a special spot in our hearts for you two and the incredible staff that made this end of life journey so much easier to bear. It’s hard to imagine any other dog right now but when that day comes, we will be returning to Gasow as I know no other vet who treats animals like they do, like they are their family too. Every single time there was nothing but love for my Poogan. God bless each and every one of you for the beautiful card and all the doggie paws. I’m so immensely heartbroken but I know 16 years of health issues, you were just tired. Rest in peace my sweet baby. Mommy will never forget you and all the love you brought to me and everyone who was lucky enough to receive that love. Thanks again Gasow for all that you do and care for our pets as you would you’re own!
