Crush

September 13th, 2014 to November 21st, 2020

Man, has 2020 sucked...

We had to say goodbye to our big dummy on November 21st, 2020. Crush was by our side as a loving companion since we picked him up on October 15th, 2014. His sickness came upon on unexpectedly, and we did our best to fight it as long as we could. When it became clear that we weren't going to be able to afford the necessary treatments (and possible future treatments as well), we had to make the difficult decision to part ways with him. It was incredibly difficult, as he has been a big part of our family and an amazing (albeit stubborn) dog too. His loss will be hard to take, and he will absolutely be missed for a long, long time...

Below is a series of pictures, starting with 2014:
