We're heartbroken to share that Hogan crossed the Rainbow Bridge today after being diagnosed with Stage 5 lymphoblastic lymphoma 6 weeks ago. He was just 8 years old and unfortunately no treatment could save him. The decline was rapid. |
Hogan was our sweet boy, our loyal and valiant protector, our 'director of public safety.' Hogan got into your soul. He loved us unconditionally.
We want to thank veterinary oncologist Dr. Kelvin Kow and the oncology team at @PortCityVet in Portsmouth, NH, for the expert and compassionate care they gave Hogan. If only the treatments worked!
We're also grateful to his primary care vet, Dr Marie Petropoulos at South Coastal Animal Health, Weymouth, Mass. Thank you for loving him.
I remember the day we went to select a puppy at Knob Hill Kennels. But it really was Hogan who chose us, and we will never be the same. There is no greater privilege on earth than to have been loved by a dog. Everyone has a Guardian Angel, but the lucky ones have a German Shepherd. We are so very lucky to have Hogan as ours. Run free, my sweet boy... you're now free from this awful disease that took you from us way too soon. Now you can bark again at the planes and hawks you see in the air and chase deer in the woods you love to roam....We know Greg's dad Norm will be the first to meet you at the Bridge, and he'll take care of you until we see you again. 🐾🐾🐾🐾💔
