Visiting Gari was always fun. When Angela visited at the same time, it was a party!

More visitors means more attention!

Everybody loved to swim with Gari.

Just like Lady and the Tramp!

Gari was always a bit spoiled. All pets should be at least a little bit spoiled!

Visitors are exhausting! Gari just wants to chill on his window seat.

Melanie explained that the visitors have come to do Important Work, and Gari is expected to help!

Melanie takes several photos, and I take photos of her taking photos.

  1. Devastating as Gari’s death was; this is positive. Seeing these is holding on to the happy memories that Gari’s visitors will hold dear. It is wonderful to have these glimpses of Gari’s life and how well he was cared for and loved.
