I just read about Albert. Please accept my deepest sympathy. I had the honour and privilege of meeting Albert last June at your open house. He couldn't deal with coming out of his crate but I think he enjoyed seeing and meeting people. The March 4 picture of him running is wonderful….to think back when he arrived at Birch Haven to being able to run and have fun is wonderful. By the sounds of it, he had a quite the sense of humour.
Just know Gwen that because of your love, commitment and devotion, his last 15 months were the best. I know how hard it is to lose a "bestest friend" but I am sure your other fur-family members will help to heal that huge hole in your heart.
Thinking of you,
