After woman’s dog passed away, friends drive by to cheer her up

It’s never easy losing someone you love, especially if that someone has fur and four legs and was your best friend in the whole world.

Cheryl Kuntz of Tonawanda lost her Great Dane, Bambi, today. Bambi was 12 years old, but her death was sudden. Kuntz is devastated to say the least, so her friends drove by to bring a smile to her face and let her know they cared about Bambi.

“Bambi touched so many lives and has been like a mommy dog to our younger Danes. Cheryl and John have been shelter supporters for a few years and are wonderful people. Needless to say their world is shattered now. My friends and I were thinking of a way to honor Bambi during this social distancing time, so I reached out to anyone who could help this wonderful family share Bambi’s light,” said Marion Dwyer, a friend who also lost her Great Dane, Echo, last year.

Signs that said “Honk for Bambi” and “Beers for Bambi” were put outside Kuntz’s home. Her friends even drove by with their dogs in the passenger seat so she knew Bambi was thought of.

Bambi was an abused and neglected Great Dane before Cheryl adopted her seven years ago. We hope they take comfort in knowing that Bambi was lucky to have a family who cared for her. We know the rainbow bridge has unlimited treats and love and she can run free and happy again. ❤️
