    A Very Sad Day

    Well,

    Today was the day we had to put Mercedes (GSD in my avatar) down. We knew this day had been coming for awhile but that doesn't make it any easier. We have never had a dog that touched our hearts so deeply. She was my wife's constant companion and protector, and our grandson's favorite pillow.

    I hope there are a lot of rocks for you to chew on Sadies.

    You will be greatly missed, 11 years was not nearly enough time to have you in our lives.

    So long girl.

    Sorry for you loss; it is so heart wrenching; losing a loyal friend.

    Losing a beloved pet is a hard and painful thing. I'm familiar with the feeling and I'm sorry. Give it some time and then give another wonderful pet a home.

    I know the sorrow your feeling at this time, very heartwrenching to lose a true friend and companion. Take comfort that she had a good life while she was with your family, Truely very sorry for your loss.

    Sorry to hear this. That human/canine dog connection is so strong and magical. Maybe looking to other dogs for comfort is a good thing at a time like this.

    I am so sorry to hear the news. It is never easy with a pet, but you are giving them your ultimate love. You are in my thoughts in a special way, because I have always enjoyed your posts about dogs, and we have a GSD too.

    Thoughts go out to you. Our buddy Rocco has been gone for a year now, after 14 1/2 loyal years. I am just now beginning to look at getting another one.

    Sorry
    Pain is the best teacher,but nobody wants to go to his class.


    When the past smothers the present, there is only desperation. When the future absorbs the present, life stands still. In either case a decision must be made because you only live now and you are only what you are now.
