I don't know if anybody remembers, but I started here a thread about taking sick dog from the street to live with us https://www.germanshepherds.com/threads/diagnose-walking-drunk-falling-over.734945/

Archie unfortunately passed away today from the tick disease.

2019-12-05_135412.png

After spending his entire life living alone on the street, he got more than 1 year and 8 months with us. Which he got to live to the fullest!!!

It seemed like he never stopped being amazed by getting food regularly. So much, that he was always a hour early for his dinner. He also enjoyed living inside of a house a lot, going on a night walks, riding a motorcycle... . Biggest accomplishment was he learning what to means to play. He had no concept of playing whatsoever. When I was playing with my other dog, he was actually acting scared and agitated at first. But over the months he not only learned to what to means to play, he also learn how to play himself. And he learned to love it so much, that he was the one, who always challenged me to play with him. It might seem like a short time, but we had a tons and tons of fun and it was awesome. Every single day of it.

What a great 1 year and 8 months it was! Thank you, Archie!!!!

I hadn't seen you post in a while... so from time to time I'd wondered how Archie was doing....you and Archie were very very lucky to have found each other.....i remember from another thread you didn't feel you'd done anything
special but you sure did.....it's great that in the end Archie learned what it's like to have a home...regular meals....to be loved and just simply be a dog....sorry for what you've lost....

Oh no! :( I remember Archie and his story. I'm so sad to hear that you lost him, but I'm glad to know that he wasn't alone and he had a family and a place to belong.
