It's been a year and a half since we had to put down essentially my first dog ever and best friend. Her name was Missy and we found her in a local MD ad in 2000. The breeder lived in cecil county somewhere and since Missy didn't come with papers she was cheap. Only about $175 at the time, she and her sister were left. And although now a days this may sound like a recipe for disaster it was quite the opposite. Her mother was from Germany and her father a local stud from Baltimore. Missy was 8 weeks old and already you could tell she was going to be a huge dog. (Her being my first dog I never realized she was bigger than average.) Anyway she was a constant in my life for 13 years until we had to put her down. And I guess the reason I'm on here is because well although it's been a year, the hole never goes away. And i figured i'd share my stories with fellow german shepherd lovers, because they'd understand how these dogs can leave such a HUGE impact. Over the years I've been trying to find the breeder I had gotten Missy from to thank him, and ever since she left the need to want to thank him grew so if anyone could help me or to simply talk about our buddies that've gone to a better place, that'd be good.
