Dear SCGR Rescue,
I met and adopted my sweet Hunter Bear 8 short months ago and I can say without a doubt, you helped me find my absolute best friend. I instantly fell in love with his sweet, huge heart and his big smile and from day one, the best words to describe Hunter are ‘pure joy’.
In late April just a few days before his birthday, I took him to the hospital because I could tell he wasn’t feeling well, and after fluid treatment and tests, I found out the worst news. My sweet boy had T-Cell Lymphoma.
He was such a strong boy, and fought it for 5 months. Last week I lost my best friend to lymphoma. It’s taken me a week to write you this, because it’s one of the most heart-breaking experiences I’ve had, being without him. The 8 months I had with him were not nearly enough, but I am so thankful for the time I had with him. We found each other for a reason. We grew together, he made me laugh every day and made every single day brighter. His unconditional love and personality is something I will always cherish.
Life is not the same without him. I don’t have a sweet golden smile waking me up every morning, or a bark when someone is at the door, or all of his toys scattered across the living room when he just couldn’t decide which one he wanted to play with. I miss my best friend so so much. This is one of my favorite pictures of my sweet Hunter Bear. I love Hunter with all of my heart. Thank you SCGR Rescue for helping me find my best friend.
