Traveler is at the Rainbow Bridge

I can barely write this but I wanted our GSD family to know that we just couldn't stay in front of the cancer any more. Traveler's oxygen level just wasn't allowing him to enjoy life. We called the vet to come over on Wednesday and he's now able to breathe deep and run like the wind.

We want to thank all of you that offered help and suggestions and best wishes during his health crisis. Your support gave us strength.

We want to thank all of you on the forum for all the training help thru the years. The boy sure gave me a run for my money and I loved every minute of it although I guess I probably could have lived without the broken ankle and the skinned up knees and elbows.

I won't be back on here for a long time. My heart is too raw.

I am so very, very sorry to hear about your loss. Yes, you probably could have lived without the broken ankle and skinned knees and elbows but they're probably happy memories. Treasure them all. That's the beautiful thing about the love between a dog and it's people. There's stress. There's moments we're pulling our hair out and we feel like we're on the edge of giving up. But the lifetime of love we share after those brief periods make it all worth it. Thank you for giving him a happy life, for taking care of him, and thank you Traveler for making your humans' lives so much better and more full of live. Play and run like the wind, until you both meet again.

Correct bad behavior, don't redirect. Redirecting is rewarding, not resolving.

Sorry to hear about your boy. RIP Traveler.

If you need equipment to maintain control of your dog, understand you’re hanging on to your dog’s body because you’ve lost his mind!

Lynn, my heart breaks for you. You did an amazing job in caring for him and getting him far more good, quality time than most cancer dogs can hope for. That you loved him enough to let him go when he started to suffer shows how special your bond was. He was very lucky to have you as his person.

My first response when I read the title was "No!" I'm so sorry for your loss. It's such a hard decision to make, but I'm sure you made the right one. We'll be thinking and praying for your family.
