It is with great sadness that we inform everyone that Hope the Basset Hound crossed over to Rainbow Bridge on January 10th. Below was the post we shared from our Facebook Page.

“It’s with heavy hearts that we inform you all that Hope has crossed the Rainbow Bridge tonight, with her foster mom and foster dad by her side.

 Hope took a turn for the worse today, she was struggling to breathe and her frail body was shutting down. Trina, her foster mom took her to the vet tonight because of her concerns of Hope’s labored breathing. The vet informed her that she had fluid in her lungs and that her body was shutting down and that she wouldn’t make it through the night.

 We tried so hard to help this sweet soul live a long and happy life but in the end , as short as her life was, we know she had the best life possible with Trina, Matt, Buster and Baxter that any dog could ask for in the last bit of her precious life.

 We would like to thank Trina and Matt for opening your hearts and your home to this sweet girl, to Southglen Vet Staff and Transcona Vet Staff for the amazing care you gave Hope. Last but not least, we would like to thank all of you who donated and who prayed for Hope during the time she was in our care.

 We all wish there was a happier ending …but for Hope, who was once cold and homeless, found happiness, love, warmth, and a family she got to call her own. May she now rest in peace.

 Run free Hope! We all love you!!”
