Like everyone else, tears are running down my face reading that. RIP Titan, there is no fear at The Bridge.

Angel, thank you for making him feel love in his last moments. At hard and as devastating as it was for you, it made it easier on him, I am sure. Sometimes that is all we can do.

My Smitty dog reacted that way in a shelter. Fortunately an ACO had known him previously as a dog she had dealt with (owner surrender in the end). A rescuer with a degree in animal behaviour also understood that it was stress, not who he really was.

She pulled him and after a couple of days he was the sweet happy goober dog that he was and has now been consistently for the 5 years he has been with me.

My Smitty wears his 'Lucky Dog' charm because he was one of the lucky ones. Too many aren't so lucky.

I made the mistake of reading this at work. I should have known I'd be crying before I had read the initial post.
RIP Titan.

Your story brought tears to my eyes. There are probably so many dogs pts needlessly. Titan was fortunate to have your loving arms around him, even if just for a short time. And you honor him by your decision to help other dogs. So his death was not in vain.

Crying as I write this. Run free at the bridge Titan, knowing you had someone who loved you at the end.

I just caught up with this thread. I have to say you are one of the most wonderful people in the world to give this poor scared GSD one moment of peace and love at the end. Having had to say goodbye to Pyrate not so very long ago your story has me in tears. If only I could save them all, I would.
