Hank from GSRT has gone to the bridge

It is with a very heavy heart that I make this post.

Hank went to the bridge on monday night, he suffered some complications that not even the best vet care could fix. His body was not able to fight back and we have lost our sweet lovable Hankaroo forever.

My husband and I are devastated and so is his daddy that adopted him, he adored him beyond words and I wish every dog could find a forever home like the one Hank had.

Thankyou to all of you that followed his story and cheered him on through good times and bad your support will never be forgotten.

We miss you and love you Hank RIP

Oh! :( That is sooo sad. I'm so sorry to hear that... Hugs to all of you who made his life special.

I am so sorry to hear this. I loved seeing how he improved over the months. You were so devoted to him.
Hard to accept that some things just can't be fixed.
RIP Hank.

I am so sorry to hear about Hank. He was finally a place where he was loved and to have it end is just not fair. But I am so happy that he finally was loved and cared for by some very special people. My thoughts go out to everyone who gave Hank the love and care he needed and deserved.

I'm so sorry..
At least he finally got to know what a true and loving family is...thank you so much for making a difference in this boy's life. Maybe he finally felt comfortable enough to let go....
I hope this family honors his memory by adopting another homeless pet.

He finally had love and companionship and so many supporters here on the board and some very good hearted human spokespersons offline. He couldn't have been more protected.

This is sad news. :( I always looked for updates on Hank. I'm so sorry Toonces.

Oh poor Hank, I sit here in tears reading about his passing. At least he found what love was really about in the end. :angel:

At least he did finally get to be loved. I'm sure he knew it. You helped make the difference for him.

I'm so sorry for Hank. He did get some time in the sun, which is something, I guess. Poor guy.:( :grouphug:
