My beloved Remo is gone


I can't even believe that I am writing this, but my Remo is gone. We lost him last night at the animal hospital - apparently he was full of cancer that had spread to his lungs so he was bleeding from inside and in total respiratory failure. He was (or seemed to be) perfectly fine down at the river on Saturday. You would have never guessed he was sick. He wasn't feeling chipper, or eating like he normally does earlier this week, but we thought it was either the heat, or the formula change to his dog food.

My heart is broken in two. He was my heart and soul. Anyone that ever met him knew how special my bond was with my crazy, giant, devoted dog. He always did anything I asked him to and then waited to see if I wanted him to do something else.

I did not have to step over him to get out of bed this morning. He didn't follow me into the bathroom. There is a huge hole in my heart and in this house and I feel so lost. He was the perfect doggie diplomat at so many VGSR events. He changed people's minds about German Shepherds. He let little kids climb all over him at the Super Pet Expo and tolerated sharing us with so many, many foster dogs for his entire, all too short, life. My boy was only six years old. Six - it so **** unfair. My Frisbee toting buddy is gone.

Please, love your dogs even more than you already do. You just don't know how quickly they can be taken away from you, without any warning or notice.

Sad beyond reason,

Lea

I am so very, very sorry.

Look back at all the happy memories you shared with him. He knew he was loved.

It is very painful when we lose our friends and something only time can heal.

RIP Remo
