Heart of My Heart

|This evening my American bred companion of the last 12.5 years was put to sleep. A better companion could not be asked for-we did alot together-he was bold, intelligent and had a great sense of humor. Unfortunately during his lifespan he ruptured at least two disc in his spine-the pain became extreme last January-modern medicine allowed us one more year-today his left hind leg kept going out on him-causing him to either collapse or attempt to drag his hind end-Happy, alert and in no pain it was a difficult decision to let him depart with his diginty intact-my heart and house have a void-the other dogs are extremely quiet this evening.|

|Very handsome he was, every GSD needs and wants his dignity.|
I had to do the same for my big handsome white GSD Kane, it was sad to see him suffer,
he was the same age.
Sorry you lost a piece of your heart.....wish they could live as long as the smaller breeds.
What was his name?

Kiplan (call name Kip/Kipper) CGC, ATTS,TT
Extensive obedience, loved agitlity, hiking and was training in tracking/trailing for MOSAR1 when he torsion at 4yr of age-his back issue was discovered when reentered training after surgery recovery and was retired. I swear he understood the English language and he certainly was a mind reader.
Thanks everyone for the condolences-its hit me really hard this morning.
