Lost my young boy today.
I lost my gsd today. We knew this day was coming, he had cardiac disease, renal problems, and yesterday he lost control of his bowels. I am relieved he is done suffering, and happy to think he is healthy and strong somewhere, but "knowing" it's coming, doesn't make it any easier. I am also very angry, because I know a lot of this comes from bad genetics and bad breeding. It's been a very very hard morning. I am just kind of lost without my big goofball running around. I am so thankful we have two dogs, my corgi has been cuddly all day and I think it would have been even harder to come home to a "dogless" house. Anyway, just thought I'd get the news over with and tell everyone. I've become quite active on this forum, and thought I would share the end of this story, as well as try and educate people as to why it is so so so important that you go to a reputable breeder. My boy left this world too soon, and he shouldn't have had these problems. I'm just so sad.
