“I’m not the only one who fell in love when I looked into Gunner’s eyes for the first time, my two oldest grandsons, who live with me, did as well. Gunner has the most beautiful eyes. It’s how he talks to me. When my third Grandson came around, Gunner thought this baby was his to look after. He was always supervising people, letting us know with a bark if the baby cried, or if we got too loud. He was, and is, a protector.
I’m retired now and, in the afternoon, Gunner will come over and put his head on my thigh when he wants something. He looks at me and it’s like he’s saying, ‘I want you to get up!’ When we go different places, and he sees something new, he looks over to share with childlike excitement. When we’re walking off leash he always turns around to look for me, making sure he knows where I am, that it’s all okay, before moving on. Since I get to spend more time with Gunner now, it’s even more evident how important he is as a friend and companion. He keeps me active and feeling content. We are truly blessed to have him as our friend, protector, and family member.”
