Nikitta Tarik, you will. I am on my 6th and 7th GSD. I never thought I could get past my first loss or my second or my third, but that unconditional love drags you back again and again. How many people can you say that about?

Phantom So far, going on vacations. It is difficult finding places I can take them and dragging around all of their stuff. However it is also extremely hard to leave them behind when I know they will miss me and I will be worrying the entire time.

SuperG Yeah, the last most important responsibility one has to make as a worthy selfless steward of the dog is the hardest part for me.....never easy but it comes in the package deal most always......

This. There are days when something as minor as new gray whiskers is heart wrenching.

I think that after you make the decision to let your first old dog go, you look at every one that follows through the bittersweet lense of time.

wolfstraum Letting them go....knowing when to absorb their pain and let them be free of it, knowing how much it will hurt you, but be an act of love on your part.....

And close is knowing your heart dog is getting older and dreading the passing of the next few months because that time is coming......

My beloved Csabre will be 12 on October 3rd...........most of mine leave within a few months of the 12th birthday.....I am already a basket case over the fast approach of that birthday

Tarik Guys, the fact that my puppy will soon pass away one day is going to be a diaster. i d k if i will be able to have another dog again because it won't ever be the same.

JackandMattie Yes, definitely, saying goodbye. In that moment, every other challenge fades to nothingness. In that moment, you would burn every matching chewed up shoe and walk barefoot through hot coals just to have your beloved dog for one more day.

DogWalker I agree about losing them. It's coming up on a year since I lost Tala and I still miss her every day.

huntergreen agree, loosing them. i cant imagine what many go through when they find rehoming a beloved pet is forced upon them.
