Date of Death: 

August 28, 2017

It's with a very heavy heart that I am writing this email to you all today. Our beloved family member, Icarus, left us on Monday, August 28th. He was our first MAGSR pup adopted back in January 2006 (when his name was Zorro) and was a beautiful, sable colored boy who had the most amazing temperament. He immediately took to our female GSD mix Scout and they became the best of buddies. Icarus was a huge part of our lives for close to 12 years and saw us through so many life events including marriage, babies, and growing boys - and we couldn't have asked for a more amazing companion on this journey. He was gentle, sweet and loved both people and dogs alike. He wasn't the brightest, but he made up for it with his amazing personality and truly stunning good looks! When we brought our most recent pup home from MAGSR in 2013 (JR now Nikko), Icarus warmly welcomed him into the house and bestowed tons of attention and licks on the younger dog. They were great playmates and Nikko helped to keep the aging Icarus young at heart. We miss our Icarus dearly and the house seems different without our big loveable guy around.  Thank you MAGSR for allowing this wonderful dog into our home and our hearts. He will not be forgotten.
