I kinda think saying good bye is a given! They are always there year after year and then one day they are gone!!??

Only thing worst than that is losing one very young and suddenly in an accident!

Besides saying good bye....I'm really not enjoying all the people who feel the need to tell me exactly what I should do with my pup! Like the pet store owners where we buy our food that raked me over the coals for switching Shayna to adult food now at five and a half months. Um....excuse me but my dog is growing ridiculously fast and needs to slow down. I was always really good at research in university and I don't make decisions without looking into it!LOL
Oh and also the people who try to sneak pets in when we go by even after I've told them she's training to not be hyper when she meets people. UGH. The hardest part of having a dog is literally trying to get the guts to tell people I need them to back off!

Someone else said this: humility ... when you KNOW you are in WAY over your head and sit there and stare at the dog and say WTF ... I'm so glad I made it past that stage and met some AWESOME people to help me ...

The other hardest part ... getting off my butt in -30 to take her out ... she loves it and I hate it ... but alas, that is why I got a long coat GSD ... to get me off my butt

Thanks God that I have yet to have to say goodbye. Fiona will be 3 in May. I would say the biggest thing was going from a neat freak to living with dog hair, female in heat, mud, dirt and all that stuff. I am cured of neat freak.

The Last Farewell

Saying GOOD BYE for the last time is the hardest and watching him
fade into his last and final sleep knowing that you will never again
have him on this earth as your constant loyal companion.

I always says this prayer for all of my beloved GOD'S CREATURES:

May God enlighten me to know all of your needs and all of your pains so that I can help you. May He guide me to know when it is your time to leave me. And when your time comes to leave my side and to gain
your eternal rewards, may you go peacefully, painlessly and quickly.
We will be together again in eternal glory, and until then,
you will live on in my heart, my beloved companion.
