28 Jan 2015 | by Neha Manchanda | Posted in: Wag News

When Gizelle, a 160 pound English Mastiff was diagnosed with terminal bone cancer, her pet parent and friend Lauren Fern Watt decided to spend the rest of Gizelle’s life in the happiest way possible.

Lauren Fern Watt is a travel writer and a public relations professional who lives in New York. When she came to know about Gizelle’s illness, she prepared a bucket list with everything she knew would make Gizelle happy. Fern and Gizelle had spent some of the most memorable moments of their life together and Fern wanted the memories of their time together to be special.

The bucket list included all the adventures that would make wonderful memories for Fern to cherish.

After Gizelles died, Lauren penned the sad news on Instagram and wrote “I lost my best friend yesterday. Gizelle was the most sensitive and loving creature I’d ever known and words cannot explain how much I will miss her. Heaven has gained a beautiful doggy angel. Rest in peace, Gizelle”.
