Default My Ronin left me today

Ten years ago I found this forum. I was a brand new shepherd owner and found many answers and support from this site. Today, I lost my very first german shepherd and I am devastated.
Ronin Meine Frieden von Himmel was my little piece of heaven. He was my companion, protector and sweet boy. He taught me so many things, responsibility, discipline, and how to be an adult. He gave me his attention, devotion and affection. He made many people happy. He loved to eat pizza, popcorn and peanut butter.
He was my fur baby and my heart is broken. I knew this day would come but I imagined that I would be there in the end with his head in my lap as I told him what a good boy he was. Instead, he was in emergency recovering from surgery and suddenly went into cardiac arrest. He died without me there. I did not say goodbye.

The doctor said that there was nothing that I could have done differently.

My ROnin shepherd was a gift. I am very thankful for the time I did have with him. I will always wish for more time though. I developed an incredible respect for this breed and realize that there is a very special and unique connection between an owner and their dog. I wish everyone could have experienced the gentle nature, comfort and love my shepherd gave me. He is my heart dog. He will never be forgotten. I just can't believe I will never hold him again. It doesn't seem real.

One day it won't hurt so much.

I am so sorry for your loss, It seems like Ronin was just as lucky as you were, you seemed to have been the perfect owner for him. I dread the day that our Thor will be leaving us, and try my best to enjoy every second, every minute, and every hour of the day that we have with him, they seem to grow so fast, and are so smart, they are amazing and like you very thankful for our Thor. May you find peace in your heart soon, no words that I can type or find will ever express your loss, but my greatest sympathy on your great loss. I'm so sorry.

Shedding a few tears for your loss...hard not to, when I read about someone losing a beloved companion.

So very sorry for your loss.

RIP Ronin....
