This is the hardest thread I have ever had to post. Abbi passed away yesterday (12-07-12) at 6am. As most know she was recovering from a severe muscle injury in her thigh and we believe that an infection formed that made way into her blood stream (septic shock) and shut her body down very rapidly. She was surronded by our family and went peacefully but the past 24 hrs have been some of the worst I have ever experienced. She was the first dog I called mine and the first GSD my family has owned. She we live in my heart forever.
