Luke Has Passed

Luke Has Passed

Our sincere condolences to Jim Simpson on the loss of his special boy Luke. You may remember we recently asked for help in finding a wheelchair for Luke. One of our members stepped up and brought him a wheelchair she used for her own Dane who had passed. Unfortunately, Luke just was not strong enough to keep going. Jim contacted us to let us know he had let Luke go.

Here is what Jim wrote to us:

“Luke’s pretend birthday was 02/14/2010 (Leya’s was 04/01/2010). He was such a love and I just feel empty without all of my babies. Luke passed very gently in my arms, very much ready and very much at peace.

He never once did a single thing wrong in his life time. No chewing shoes, no accidents, never once did he ever not do what I asked of him. Although it took a few years, he did recover from the abuse at the Mill. Although, I’m pretty sure that Leya bossed him out of that one.

Words will never describe how grateful I am to Lori Lynne for coming to our rescue. I am forever grateful to both of you.

I’ve attached a photo of Ben (my first rescue) as well as a photo of Luke and Leya in their favorite “Yin and Yang” position. And even though my girl bossed him around so much, they absolutely loved each other. Thank you for trusting me to adopt all three of my babies. I will never forget the experience of being guardian to each one of them.”

These three Danes were very lucky to have lived with Jim. A better Dad is not out there!

Please keep Jim in your thoughts during this difficult time.
