Good-by, Handsome Gizmo


Gizmo told us last night that it was time to go to the bridge.  Our stoic dog told us that the pain was too much.  Osteosarcoma sucks.

My heart lurched when I saw your title. Gizmo will be missed so very much - most of all by you but by all of us too. I could tell from so far away how deeply you loved him and that you gave him a wonderful life. We hope that Gizmo is running free, with no pain, and is watching over you from up high.

My eyes are filled with tears. That evil cancer stole Gizmo far too soon. But, Gizmo will live on forever in your heart - I know that for certain.

Many hugs from me, K and R.

Stella said...

All my heartfelt condolences to Gizmo's pack. Such a beautiful rottie! Not a day will go by that you don't think of your handsome boy and all the fun you had together.

Thank you for sharing your pack with us. I do love rotties but never had one of my own, so I love to hear stories about your pack.

Blessings, Gizmo and to the whole family,

Jo, Stella and Zkhat

Rest in peace sweet Gizmo.

Homer said...

We are so sorry... so sorry for your loss. When we were going through our blogging updates, we saw the headlines and our hearts sank.

Thanks for sharing Gizmo life with us. He was a booti-ful boy (with a cute bum.) We are going to miss him.

Love,
Homer

There are no words, only tears. Thank you for sharing him with us. I am so sorry.

MurphyDog said...

Me & MOm are so sorry to hear about Gizmo.

Cancer does suck. Both of Mom's previous Danes went to the Rainbow Bridge because of Osteosarcoma. Its a nasty nasty cancer.

RIP Gizmo

Say Hi to Bristol & Tyler for Mom!

So sorry to hear! Hope you can feel us thinking about you from here!

~Kim at Golden Pines~ said...

Words fail me...Saying that I'm sorry just doesn't seem like enough because I know the ache your heart is feeling at the loss of your precious Gizmo. Even though he wasn't my dog, I feel almost as if he was because you shared him with all of us. There's a well known saying... 'Death is never sad, if the gift of life has been well used'. I know Gizmo's life was 'well used' but I feel very very sad for you and your family and for all of us at this loss. I hope you find comfort in your memories and in knowing that you'll see Gizmo again one day, and what a wonderful day that will be!!

God speed Gizmo. Our candle will be lit to help you find your way to the Rainbow Bridge...

Mango said...

Oh Gizmo! I don't have words. I know that it was your time, but all too soon for your friends and family. Run free, my friend, run free.

Nooooooooo - this breaks my heart into little pieces. I am so very sorry for the loss of sweet Gizmo. I have tears in my eyes sitting at my cubicle desk at work, looking at Gizmo's picture. Not fair. But I know that rainbow bridge is a great place to be - my lab Buster is there, and my sweet kitty Christina too (they died days apart). I am sending hugs and prayers to you all today.

Oh, I'm so sorry! Gizmo lived a fabulous life with you, the sort that all dogs deserve. The only problem is that they're never with us long enough. I'd been dreading the day this news would come. Please know that you're in our hearts and prayers!

Bunny and Carrie

P.S. I replied to your e-mail Sunday and just found it that it didn't make it, through. I hope it gave you a little smile.

Honey the Great Dane said...

Oh my God. I can't believe it has happened so quickly!! How many more adventures & laughs we wanted to share with you, Gizmo - how very much we treasured the last few weeks...

We were just checking our Google Reader before bedtime and froze in horror when we saw your post. I can't imagine how much the whole family must be missing you now, Gizmo. My human's heart is breaking. Both you & your Mom were so wonderfully brave and such an inspiration...run free now, free from pain - and know that you will always be remembered and missed greatly.

Thinking of you from far away -

Slobbers,
Honey the Great Dane

The RH sent us over -

We hadn't yet seen the post in our GR - but his post jumped out at us -

We are sorry for the loss - yet so proud you listened to him -

He knew he could count on you -

Even at his end 'here' -

As we say, not forever - just - for now -

Our candle will be lit tonight as he romps and rolls and runs and rests with the other Rainbow Bridge Khampers!

Oh, we are so very, very sorry to see this. We did not think it would come to pass so soon. Our hearts are breaking for you, but at the same time we love you for giving Gizmo peace from his pain.

HoundDogMom said...

Oh, my heart is just breaking for you today. I know Gizmo is pain free and him and Cleo are having a great time together. It will be 1 month on the 20th that Cleo gained her angel wings and I know she was waiting for Gizmo to come play with her "Pain Free". I know there are no words and that I send you lots of hugs and prayers for you and your family. This "C" monster so sucks for everyone. Run Free Gizmo, you will always remain in our hearts. HoundDogMom (Sherri) and The HoundDogs

Tank said...

When I get to the bridge, the first thing I'm going to do is find Gizmo. I think hanging out with him would be the coolest thing ever (plus I'm sure he'd protect me when I bark the wrong thing to the big dogs and get myself in trouble... )

Rest in peace my rottie furiend.

Love to your asst.

Anne-Kathrine said...

Oh hon, Im sooo sorry to hear this, but you gave him the last most beautiful gift!!! His spirit and memories will live on. Prayers on the way!!!

Priscilla said...

Run free, Gizmo!

You know that you are not alone at all, I'm sure you have already met our Laura and Hana over the bridge and you will like them as they are good girls.

Take care, Gizmo! We miss you!!!

Jen said...

OHHHH!! This is heartbreaking... I just heard this morning from Mango, and I instantly felt the sadness welling up. He was truly a great dog.

Comfort yourselves with knowing that you loved him deeply and shared him with us, who loved him deeply too. And, you listened when it was time and were brave enough to do the most difficult thing of all- say goodbye. Know that he's at the Bridge with a great crew (my Mortimer for one), waiting.

Run pain free Mr. Gizmo. We all love you.

Jen and the Black Dog Crew

My heart sank when I heard this news this morning... Sweet Gizmo, you will be very missed by all here in blogville. I know I sure did enjoy my time with you. Glad to know you'll be watching from above with all the other great pups we have lost. I hope your family will find comfort in their wonderful memories if you, my dear furiend, and knowing they did the right thing by you. It's often hard for them to listen to your wishes because they know it means such heartache for them. My thoughts will be with your family today and the coming days. I know you are free and running like the wind.
Until we meet again...

Your header said it beautifully. When we suffer the loss of a pup, a part of our heart goes with them. Eventually a new pup wanders into our life and gives us a piece of theirs. I am so sorry to hear about your gorgeous Gizmo. It is such a difficult path to walk when you are fighting cancer. May your moments be filled with the reminders of the love and good times you all shared together.

Siku Marie, White Dog said...

Your time, dear Warrior and Friend, was too short. Know that you are forever a hero and will never be forgotten. We vow to continue our fight to end the reign of this monster's terror in your name in hopes that someday no family will feel the heartache yours does tonight. Be at peace Gizmo and guide your loved ones to comfort.

When you left the comment on my post, and I didn't see Gizmo signing off, I had the most terrible feeling and I just didn't quite dare to come and see if my gut feeling was right.

I am terribly, terribly sorry to see that Gizmo has left for the rainbow bridge. It certainly sucks to have to say goodbye (even if it's temporarily) to one of our furry pals eh?

Keeping all of you in my thoughts. Sending lots of loving licks and cuddles your way.

thepawsitivethinker said...

I'm so sorry for your loss. My Jersey and Leo will make sure he's okay. They were suckers for a cute male Rottie nubbin. You will know when it's time to open your heart to another.

Til then hug your furry kids close, let their kisses dry your tears, and remember Gizmo will always be with you.

I am so very sorry about Gizmo's passing. I have been catching up on blog news and came over to your blog to see how Gizmo was doing and let the Pawcircle folks know...I was crushed to read this. I am thinking of you and know handsome Gizmo is watching over you from beyond the Rainbow Bridge, no more suffering. He will always be in your hearts...we have lost too many furpals this past year...my heart goes out to you and your family. Please know I am thinking of you. Run free, Gizmo.
