my saddest day

Is it with great saddness that I tell everyone the I had to put my best friend to sleep today. He had cancer and had his spleen removed a few weeks ago. I was hoping to enjoy his company into the next year but that was not to be.
I have had about 11 GSDs throughout my life and have had a few really great ones. Never have I had a dog like Xilo. He touched everyone that way. He had such a large impact upon my life that I owe him a debt that never can be repaid. I became interested in Schutzhund due to him, I did therapy with him. He never left my side willingly. He protected me and my family without command, he stood over my grandchildren.
My regret is that most of you never met him.

I am so sorry for your loss.
I am so sorry to hear of your loss. Losing a dog (our family member) is such an emotional time and I know it will take a long time to heal such pain. I hope you find comfort in the fact that you found each other and could share so much. I wish I could have met him.
I am very sorry for your loss. I lost my gsd, Basu, to the same cancer early last March. He sounds like he was your heart dog and I hope you will take comfort in the wonderful memories you have of your time together.
You have my's so hard and it sounds like he was an exceptional partner...
I am so sorry for your loss. Shepherds just don't touch your heart.....they grab ahold of it and run like ****. If it helps ease the pain, please tell us more about your boy. We would love to hear about him.
Xilo was a noble dog, his picture is stunning. My deepest sympathies go out to you. Rest in peace sweet boy.

I am sorry to hear of your loss. RIP Xilo.

I was wondering what was keeping you away from the board, I assume this was it. Once again sorry for your loss.

Rest in peace, Xilo. It sounds like you had an incredible bond and even though you can no longer see him, he will be with you always. Take care.

I wish to thank everyone for their kinds words and thoughts. Reading them does help me. There is an emptiness that I can't describe. I have spent alot more time with my other two fur kids, one of them, Otto (Bracca) is Xilo's son. The other is Otto's mother. They sense the change and I am sure they wonder where he has gone.
Over time the pain of the loss will be replaced by the memories of joy we shared.
my deepest sympathies for the loss of your beloved Xilo

you were truly blessed to share your life with him.
