blog post: a tribute to my guide dog gatsby

When I first received Gatsby in 2004 I had no idea she would touch my life and leave this indelible mark on my heart. She helped me gain confidence in my travels, she would amuse me with her antics and a lot more. Gatsby even helped my brother, Rakan, place in a Reflections contest in 2005. So many stories and memorable moments.
You’re probably wondering why I’m sharing this.
Today, February 1st, 2017, my lovely Gatsby journeyed over the rainbow. She wwill be greatly missed. She brought so much into my life as well as my family’s. Her sweet energy permeated throughout the entire household. Her Unconditional love, uncanny ability to comfort me when I would think all is lost. Of course tears as she chewed up my braille blocks I worked so hard on many years ago. She takes away a piece of my heart. An empty spot sits in her honor. She will be missed by not just myself but, by others whose lives she’s touched. Farewell my Sweet Gatsby💜

The Great Gatsby, born August 8, 2002. Passed February 1, 2017.
