On November 8, 2009, Gibson was assisted to the Rainbow Bridge due to Degeneratie Myelopathy.

 

He was cherished and loved by Ardith and Peter Johnson, their children and grandchildren.  He was one of the kindest and sweetest boxers you could ever know.

 

Gibson was always the agile one, easily jumping over baby gates and fences.  The entire time that I knew him, he never growled at another dog and certainly not people. 

 

Gibson was a very special boxer and lived his life to the fullest, happy and loving right up to the last moment of his life.

 

I feel blessed that I was able to share in his life by watching him from time to time when Ardith went out-of-town.   He will be missed by everyone that knew him!

Line

Gibson was returned to me on July 2, 2002. Due to an unexpected change in their lives, Tom & Jana Bennett were unable to keep Gibson. I commend them for choosing to keep their two Rescue boxers over a Show Boxer. Their Rescue boxers have been with them longer and could not easily be placed in a home. It was a magnanimous decision to make and demonstrates their devotion to their boxers no matter if they are a white boxer or a show boxer. I commend them for making such a tough choice and doing what's best for all of their boxers!
