Named after movie celebrities from the 30s, George and Ethel offer us two decades of a bonded relationship, twenty years of growing old together, accompanied by defining roles and daily routines, and more than enough Love to underscore how canines esteem the value of relationships.
Our caregiving observations show that the death of a Life partner (human or canine) ends the relationship but does not sever all relational bonds. The sense of being connected to the lost figure persists. Therefore, grief sensitivity to 'physical absence' and the surviving canine's 'role' is paramount to the healing process.
We invite you to experience George’s Life Journey as he discovers new ways to benefit humans and residents with his tender heart. As a Sanctuary Sweetheart sponsor, you receive monthly updates and always welcome to meet George.
