Date of Death:
Nero Dubel Burns, who we adopted in February of 2010, passed away at the age of 12 in September. Nero had a tough year as he battled cancer. He brought joy to everyone with whom he crossed paths and was described by everyone as a “gentle giant”. Of the three German Shepherds we had over the years, Nero was the largest, weighing in at 125 pounds. Nero was always protective and a great guard dog. He loved being around his father, Bruce. He never left Bruce’s side – ever. Wherever Bruce was, Nero was right there with him. We loved waking up every morning to the click-clack sound of Nero coming down the hallway, right at 7:00 A.M., ready for his mother Bonnie to take him out. Nero and our grandson Logan also were inseparable. They went for long walks around our lake, chased each other around the house, and were always good for a laugh. He has been missed over the last few months and we will always remember the joy he brought us.
