Yesterday we had to say good bye to our heart :( Anouk, our 10-year-old GSD was diagnosed with lumbosacral syndrome/cauda equina which became severe to the point of him totally going down in his back end and being incontinent. We knew it was time when the pain medications no longer worked...he was just in too much pain for us to bear and we had to make the most difficult decision any owner has to..to put him to rest in a peaceful and humane way. :(

We all awoke this morning with swollen eyes but we all agreed that we were happy to know he was free from his broken body and able to run and jump through the fields as he loved to do here on earth.

Simply put he was Awesome :wub:

So sorry for your lose. You are right, your wonderful boy is free of pain. One of the hardest things we can do is to let go. You and your family will be in my thoughts and prayers.

I am so very sorry for your loss. It is indeed very painful but also comforting to know he is now free from pain and sickness. Run free little one!

I'm so sorry. We've had to put a pet down before and it's very upsetting. Just know that you gave him a good life and then took away his pain for him.

So sorry for your loss. It seems that the more we love, the more it hurts to lose them. I just feel sorry for the people that never know this kind of pain, because they have never known this kind of love.

Very sorry for your loss. It is so sad that they have to go so soon and have to tell us to let them go. Because WE DON'T WANT TO.
