Carlo was a gentle giant of a dog that had such a loving heart matched only by his deep desire for food. In the last year, after moving to the coast, he enjoyed many strolls along the beach even though we never tempted him to go into the water. Carlo was very well mannered and gentle and often referred to by people who met him as a 'gentleman'. His gentleness and patience helped several friends overcome their deep phobia of dogs. Sadly, he died of renal failure following the spread of cancer and will be missed by everyone who knew him over his many years.
