6/9/2007 - 6/22/2020Our beloved chocolate lab crossed the rainbow bridge. Hunter lost his brave battle with mast cell cancer on June 22, 2020. From the moment you came into our lives, I knew you were special. You were a calm, sweet puppy who came right up to and picked us. You were so smart! We trained you with a bird bell on the door and in just one week you were trained. You loved your food (and everyone else's!). Swimming in the pool all day with the kids or chasing a tennis ball with dad on the sidewalk were your favorite activities. In your downtime, cuddling with mom on the couch was the end to a perfect day. You were a sweet, gentle soul who loved your family, and any other people or pets you met. You were even happy to see the vets at Blue Pearl every two weeks. As you got older, walks replaced swimming and ball. But you always loved to eat and cuddle. We received the cancer diagnosis in mid March. You stoically fought the battle, enduring 1 surgery and 3 different chemo drugs to keep the cancer at bay. Sadly it returned and quickly after your 13th birthday, you really started to suffer. With everything you gave us, we could not let that happen and we let you earn your angel wings. Thank you Dr. Coyle at Blue Pearl Animal Hospital in Oncology for everything you did for Hunter and for us too. You were so patient, kind, and respectful of all our questions and tears. Thank you Dr. Wilkins at Lap of Love. That was the hardest day for our family but your gentle words of sympathy, understanding and support along with your gentle care with Hunter was wonderful.
Heaven has another angel😪❤🐶
We love and miss you and we will all be together in heaven again someday.
