This is very painful to post

I've lost my two beloved girls. My Maggie was a horrible shock. She was just 6 years old, when she suffered a heart attack, then a stroke. I believe I owe my dogs, to be there in their last moments. I looked into her beautiful eyes as she breathed her last and left this life. That was in October 2014.

On September 21, 2015, my Heidi left this world. She was almost 13 years old. Without warning, we found her on her doggie bed. She had passed on in her sleep, for which I was thankful.

Here is a photo of my two girls. Maggie is sitting, with her head tilted at that "puppy parabolic" angle; she was my ham and she loved photos. Typical of most GSD's, she never grew up and was a puppy until the end. Maggie was a natural tracker and very talented.

Heidi is laying down. She was a rescue from the local shelter. She was 6 years old when we adopted her. Her owner turned her in to be put to sleep, because they couldn't afford the vet bills. Her problem was simple: she was allergic to fleas and she had no saddle and infected ears, because of flea dermatitis. We don't know her background, but she was definitely used to riding shotgun in the car and she was overfed. But, she would cringe if anyone raised their voices, especially men. Heidi was my constant shadow.

I miss my girls. They say time heals all wounds, but I'm not so sure about this. I knew that Heidi was nearing the end of her life and I feel like we gave her a good life after adopting her. However, I'm still not over Maggie's death.

Since I had to euthanize Maggie, the Vet took care of her remains. We took Heidi deep into the mountains and found a meadow overlooking a beautiful valley. That is where we buried Heidi.

Here are my girls:

I don't think you ever really get over it. You just kind of get used to it. Sorry about your girls.
