Lost my best friend on 3/30/2010

I was surfing the internet on GSD trying to relieve the pain I am feeling. I found this forum and decided to join and make my first post. Kasey was not just a dog, he was an active member of my family. He was my shadow. Where ever I went he was right there with me. If my wife and I were on vacation, we would get my son to come take care of him. No vet hotel for him because he would not eat. The last few years of his life, his health started to diminish. He was on a special diet because of his kidneys, taking meds for his thyroid and arthritis in his rear hips. I knew I couldn't prolong the enevitable this past week-end. He stopped eating his food and could hardly go down the ramp I had constructed on my deck. He would walk about 20 feet and his rear legs would apparently fail and he would fall over. I had sworn I would never put him to sleep, but I couldn't bear to see this happen. I took him to the vet and had him come outside to administer the medication to remove his pain. I held him in my arms until the end. I brought him home and buried him in my back yard. I visit him every day when I come home. His pain is over, but mine is as strong as the day he died. I downloaded some pictures of Kasey, the Christmas pictures were about 4 years ago. The others were made on the day he died. Kasey, I love you and may you rest in peace.

I think the only thing you can do is remember that he isn't suffering anymore, and that he did know how much you loved him, and always will.

RIP Kasey, a very handsome boy.

I love the pictures of Kasey at Christmas. You can tell he was well loved. I grieve with you.

I'm sorry for your loss of Kasey. You can tell from his pics that he was a happy and lucky dog to have shared his life with such a loving family. The decision was one of the greatest acts of love you could have done. He's now running free in the greenest fields and under the bluest skies and will be waiting loyally for you at the bridge.
