RIP Rebel

Rebel would have been 10 years old on Sept 12 of this year. He was the first German Shepherd I had ever had.

He had had a degenerate spinal disease for about the last 5 years. Just this past few months he'd been having seizure and was in pretty bad pain with his back legs. The vet suggested he needed to be put to sleep since he was in so much pain.

I loved him so much and have so many wonderful memories of him. He would always lay his head on my leg to let me know he wanted to go out, or he was out of water. We had nightly rituals. When my husband came home at night, he always had one treat for Rebel before he went to bed and another one ready on the headboard for when he finally did go to bed.

I still hear his loud sighs during the evening, letting me know he's contently resting. Or water dripping out of his mouth coming thru the kitchen and all the dribbles I used to have to wipe up.

I just miss him so much.

There are so many memories of him I can't even think of them all.


Rebel you'll always be in my heart.

It was the right thing to do for Rebel but that doesn't make it any easier. I'm sorry for your loss.

I am really truly sorry. My Beno has been gone for over 6 months and I still get tears and often. I hope you do better than I have.

If you have a dog, you will most likely outlive it; to get a dog is to open yourself to profound joy and, prospectively, to equally profound sadness.

Im sorry for your loss

He looks like he was a grand fellow with a beautiful soul. I know how much it breaks your heart when you lose one.

Please don't let too much time pass before you decide the bring another dog into your home.

Yours in GSDs and rescue,
