Sеniоr Dоg Nаmеd Gеrtiе Wаnts 1,000 Hugs Bеfоrе Shе Pаssеs

 Gertie, whose full name is Gertrude, is a 14-year-old dog who was on her way to accomplishing a singular goal: receiving 1000 hugs. Her story is the inspiration for today's special edition. Gertie was a mixed breed who was discovered at McDonald's in Arizona with her loyal friend, the Chihuahua Pablo. Kate Goodhart, who has a significant last name, adopted them via Facebook. They were older, so no one wanted to adopt them for a long time, despite a reasonably effective Facebook campaign, but Kate couldn't resist them and chose to adopt them as soon as she saw their photographs on social media.

Unfortunately, older dogs like Gertie are frequently abandoned because their owners wish to produce little puppies, and as a result, they brutally ditch their loving dogs somewhere on the road. Anyone who has owned an older dog knows how full he is of love for his people, not only love but also calmness, wisdom, and experience, and Gertie was no exception.

Kate decided to take Gertie to the vet after adopting her; sadly, the results of the examination did not predict a bright future. Following the examination, the vet recommended that Gertie be put to sleep because the road ahead of her was full of misery due to her condition and age. Regardless of the vet's advise, Kate was determined to give Gertie a chance; she believed in her fighting spirit and was steadfast in her desire to provide her with as many beautiful moments as possible till the end of her life. Gertie perked up, as if she had a surplus of energy, and her health improved significantly, much to the delight of her family; it's astonishing how love for a dog favourably affects him.

Gertie set out on an unusual objective after being adopted: to collect at least 1000 hugs before she left us forever. The purpose of this whole project is to give that ageing dog as much love and joy as possible - a lovely act and concept by its new owner, Kate. Of course, everything was done so that Gertie could enjoy everything. For example, if Gertie felt fatigued, the embracing would stop immediately and she would take a well-deserved rest. Everything was centred on Gertie and what she wanted at the time.

In the name of that project, a Facebook page was formed where followers could enjoy daily images of Gertie's happy moments in all the places she met people who were eager to share her joy. On her Facebook page, you can see how many people supported everything that occurred to her and how many messages of love and support were left for her in the comments. Her story got so far that it was covered in local newspapers in Anthem, Arizona. We hope that her story reached a large enough audience to raise awareness of older dogs and urge people to adopt.

Unfortunately, Gertie departed us forever in 2016, and you may see her final video below, which was recorded before she died:

This project's main goal was to promote awareness of older dogs, and dogs in general; how vital they are to our family members, and how they deserve to be loved in exchange for the unconditional love they give to us. Gertie was not with us in public, but she was with us long enough to spread love and joy to all the people she encountered along the way and who followed her on social media and other platforms.
