I can barely write this but I wanted our GSD family to know that we just couldn't stay in front of the cancer any more. Traveler's oxygen level just wasn't allowing him to enjoy life. We called the vet to come over on Wednesday and he's now able to breathe deep and run like the wind.

We want to thank all of you that offered help and suggestions and best wishes during his health crisis. Your support gave us strength.

We want to thank all of you on the forum for all the training help thru the years. The boy sure gave me a run for my money and I loved every minute of it although I guess I probably could have lived without the broken ankle and the skinned up knees and elbows.

I won't be back on here for a long time. My heart is too raw.

I am so very, very sorry to hear about your loss. Yes, you probably could have lived without the broken ankle and skinned knees and elbows but they're probably happy memories. Treasure them all. That's the beautiful thing about the love between a dog and it's people. There's stress. There's moments we're pulling our hair out and we feel like we're on the edge of giving up. But the lifetime of love we share after those brief periods make it all worth it. Thank you for giving him a happy life, for taking care of him, and thank you Traveler for making your humans' lives so much better and more full of live. Play and run like the wind, until you both meet again.

Lynn, my heart breaks for you. You did an amazing job in caring for him and getting him far more good, quality time than most cancer dogs can hope for. That you loved him enough to let him go when he started to suffer shows how special your bond was. He was very lucky to have you as his person.

My first response when I read the title was "No!" I'm so sorry for your loss. It's such a hard decision to make, but I'm sure you made the right one. We'll be thinking and praying for your family.

I am so very sorry for your loss. I know pain and loss is more real than anything else in the world to you right now. Many of us know how real it is and we appreciate someone like you that invested their heart and soul into a great dog. I hope your pain is eased by the good memories you have of the times with your boy.

"and he's now able to breathe deep and run like the wind." What a wonderful and heartbreaking image that brought to me. The family that loved him so much gave him the hardest gift of all. I'm so utterly sorry.

I totally understand what you're going through now, and my heart goes out to you. Life will NEVER be the same, nothing I can say will change that. My thoughts, good, positive thoughts, are with you. Grieve! Traveler was a cherished member of the family...I know. I've been there. But please, when you're ready, let us all know how you're doing...
