A Sad Heavy Heart

I was given some very sad news.
On Wednesday, August 25th, we were told that 3 year old Hero had died.
Hero, was one of Georgie's puppies.

Georgie and her 5 puppies were rescued from a Georgie county shelter in February of 2007. They endured a long ride, and were stuck for 2 days in the back of a truck on a Pennsylvania interstate during a blizzard and ice storm.
The transport was met by volunteers from Harnessed to Hope Northern Breed Rescue, who then took Georgie and her puppies to their new foster home where they were cared for then adopted into loving families.

Hero was adopted to a family that absolutely adored him. He was half Siberian Husky and half Basset Hound - a unique combination. He was a very active little guy, who liked belly rubs, stealing his canine brother, Cajun's bones, and chasing rabbits.

Last week, Hero was diagnosed with an inoperable cancer, and he passed away on Wednesday.

Godspeed Little Hero.
