In Memoriam: Blu and Gussy

By Pam Foster, published on January 25th, 2022
"Dr. Tillman (with Blu) and Dr. Brush (with Gussy) assisted our family in transitioning both over "The Rainbow Bridge". I cannot say enough good things about either of them and their compassion for what they do! The process was so much more calming for both Blu and Gussy and we had the privacy of our home in which to grieve throughout the process! Thank you to all for everything you do - Pam and John Foster"

Blu, our cattle dog mix, lived till the ripe old age of 13 1/2 after we adopted her as a puppy from the Capital Area Humane Society. We had to make the decision to humanely euthanize her in April 2021 due to dementia and senior arthritis. She was a great dog and a part of our family. Gussy, our basset hound, only knew Blu as his “mom” and sorely missed her every day. Gus developed pancreatitis in March 2020 which became a chronic condition along with each episode getting closer and more severe after Blu’s passing along with tearing his ACL around Christmas so we (again) had to make the decision to euthanize him just a week ago to relieve his constant pain. I have been working from home for almost 2 years and they became my constant companions, our home is now very quiet and lonely.
