I'm sorry. If our dogs have one fault, it is that they go too soon. I'm sorry that you could not say goodbye, it's sad. But I hope you can take some comfort in that he probably did not suffer in passing.

I am just checking in. It's been a year and forgotten the date I lost Ronin. Not because I have forgotten him but because I still miss him. I have not gotten a new German shepherd. I do frequent the just to look and see if their might be that special dog for me.
I believe in my heart that Ronin left because he knew his job was over. I had gotten married and knew I was in good hands.
I miss his companionship. There are days I walk through my front door and forget he's not here. He didn't like seeing anyone crying. He would cuddle next to you if you were.
I have a newborn at home now. I can't help but wonder and imagine how wonderful he would have been around her.
I hoped that it would get easier. It has and has not. I still miss him. My heart still hurts. He was my heart dog and always will be.

I visit this site rarely but I find a little peace visiting.
When my little girl starts to walk, I'll start looking for a new shepherd. Ronin brought such joy and taught me so much. I hope she'll develop love for this breed. Definitely, e.

Until then...hug your shepherds

Even after 4 months I still miss Pyrate. He was my heart dog too. He will always own a piece of my heart as long as I live. I understand still grieving after a year. I've had many dogs in my life but none that I felt the way I did toward Pyrate. He came into my life at a hard time and filled a void I needed filled. He was my big dog, my boy, my best friend, and a life trainer for me. Hugs to you. May the broken pieces of your heart mend over the good memories you made together. I'm going to go hug Raina now.

So sorry for your loss. It hurts like crazy. I lost two last year and these posts brought it back incl. the tears. I hope you'll find a good dog soon. Once you have lived with a good dog, your life won't be complete without one, at least for me.
I will hug WD in your Ronin's name. I'll bet he is around you.
