- Saturday (Aug 29) Griffyn lost his battle with cancer and we had to say goodbye to him. He did not have enough time on this earth. His life was too short, but in that short period of time…he lived! Griffyn was a diamond that sparkled and glowed from every facet. He was sweet, wonderful, energetic, loving and very intuitive. He was the type of dog to know when you were upset or having a bad day and he would come give you a gentle kiss. He came to work with me every day and was the office favorite – he got lots of cookies and pets from all my co-workers. His life was happy – just too short. His experiences were vast, he was titled in conformation, lure coursing and racing but none of that really means much when you would trade it all for another day. Being part of a “team” means you sacrifice for each other. I would have given anything to save him but it just wasn’t meant to be. Griffyn was a “once in a lifetime dog”…and I wouldn’t want it any other way. Be at peace, my friend, and I will see you again someday. ~ BISS Am GCh DC, Can GCh, UKC Ch, Int’l Ch.
