Jackie "Moon" Gruber was born on Easter Sunday 2010. She came to live at her forever home on May 16, 2010. She grew up loving her little family right away. She quickly learned her name, how to shake, sit, and speak. She enjoyed being outside chasing squirrels, birds, and playing fetch with her brothers Ethan and Torin.
As she became older, she enjoyed going on walks, car rides, trips to the lake fishing, and sitting under her mom Terra's feet while she cooked in hopes of tripping her to catch a stray treat. Her favorite thing to do was cuddle and give smooches when she knew her family members needed it most.
In May 2020 Jackie was diagnosed with lung cancer. She was expected to live 3-5 weeks, but didn't give up on her family until the very end. She passed away peacefully surrounded by her family and Heartland Animal Hospital on August 5, 2020.
She is survived by her parents Terra and Eddie Gruber, two brothers Ethan and Torin Gruber, and her doggy sister Coco.
A special thank you to the doctors and staff at Heartland Animal Hospital for all the care given to Jackie and also to Parker Kohl for their outstanding services.
