Tess Augustina #3564

Our sweet Tess went to the bridge on May 5th. Her life was a lesson for all of us.

Surrendered a few short days before her terminally ill Mom died Tess came to GRRMF for love and care her Mom could no longer give her.  After time in loving foster care, loosing weight and learning and loving the sport of gentle agility to keep her mind and body active, just when she was being cleared for adoption Tess was diagnosed with a life threatening heart condition.  Tess was placed in our GRRMF Sanctuary program with her foster Mom and Dad.

Each day with her was a gift before and especially after the diagnosis.

Not particularly dog friendly, special Tess favored cows instead and anxiously awaited and savored her daily car rides to visit with them.  She loved stepping through her agility routine, napping in the sun, pool time and especially adored time with her angels on earth – her foster Mom and Dad who she shared special secrets with and received wonderful belly rubs and velcro time.

She tasted the joy each day of living life to the fullest with the people she loved and doing what she loved the most with them.  We should all be blessed with these gifts each day.

Thank you to our GRRMF vets, volunteers, donors and especially her Mom and Dad, Cindy and Mike for listening to Tess and giving this precious girl what she needed for her days to be filled with happiness. Cindy and Mike’s said ….”We know when she crossed the Rainbow Bridge she was driving a convertible with cows in the back seat.”  Drive free sweet Tess!

Please honor Tess’s life with a “$10 for Tess” donation for us to carry on her legacy of daily joy for each of our special rescues who need us. Any amount you can give is so appreciated.
