Goobye Bogey pup

I'm 56 years old, had a GSD all of my life, and yesterday was the first time I had to have a dog put to rest. He was the best dog that I have ever had, and I'm not just saying that. This is the hardest I've ever taken the loss of a best friend.

I have never given a dog chocolate, but Bogey got a mini snickers bar and a couple of puperonis, his favorite treat, before he went to sleep.

The vet came to my home. Bogey laid on his favorite couch, and I held him and looked into his eyes and he drifted off. I wanted to be the last thing he saw.

I know I don't hardly ever post here, but I just had do this small memorial to my sweet Bogey pup. Rest in peace dear boy, and look for me at the bridge.

Sorry to hear your loss og Bogey. Its sounds like he was a very special dog that will always be missed. You were with him until the end and I'm sure he knows he was loved. Peace

Ahh Wade... saw your comment on my post in this forum.... thank you for reaching out. Bogey knows he was loved and I betcha he and my Eva are playing in doggie heaven right now, along with my MIL's GSD who passed away in January 2013.

Rest in peace Bogey... I think you get to have all the chocolate you want in heaven.

So strange we followed the same pattern, then crossed paths on this forum - both took a few days off to spend every waking moment with our dearly beloved dogs and then had the vet come to us... I was all about being the last thing in Eva's eyes, too. Laid down right in front of her, totally in the vet's way, and talked to her.... wouldn't have had it any other way, I can still see her eyes and her sweet little eyebrows shifting up towards my face as I spoke to her.

Wish I could see Bogey's pic! It won't load for me. Just wanna see what my girl's new boyfriend looks like ;-)
