K9POPPY So sorry for your loss-we share your pain and grief- it would seem to alot of us that GSD's are just different- I am sure your dog will be greatly missed, but not forgotten, kind regards. Bob

Elsieb I want to thank everyone for their sympathy. Sometimes timing and fate deliver things into your life that don't erase the grief but ease it some. The day Deacon left us my husband called Eric Grasso in CT. We had seen his dogs online and just wanted to get our name in with him since I thought it would take some time. After a long conversation with my husband, Eric said he had a dog he thought would be perfect for us (me really as I am the weak link, my husband is a good trainer and disciplinarian with dogs). We met Eric and the dog thursday for several hours and then yesterday Zorro came home with us. A beautiful beautiful boy. German show lines and he is 13 months old. A rambunctious teenager but eager to please. I will get pics and post soon. I believe Deacon sent me Zorro to stop me from being so sad.

readaboutdogs I'm so sorry for your loss of Deacon. Sounds like many years of good memories. You're right, there's just something about our shepherds. Our guardian shepherds of our hearts. Rest in peace Deacon. Peace to your family.

Fade2Black R.I.P Good Boy Deacon..... Right now he's feasting with all the other GSD's lost in the great hall at GSD Valhalla. Celebrating another day of battle victory against vacuum dragons and evil squirrels....

Been through the same thing too many times although once is more then enough. You never get over that sickening feeling. You lay down on a blanket holding them as the 1st shot knocks them out so they feel no pain. Then the next one crosses them over. They should all live forever and that wouldn't be long enough.......

emilybyrne So sorry for your loss. My Chai died a few weeks ago, so I understand the agony. They leave such an emptiness behind them. But you gave him such love and care, he must have had a good life.
