Missing His Tracks

Sarge
I am missing His tracks.   For eleven wonderful years he kept his beside mine.

 He was the "Other Man In My Life".
My constant companion.  .

From the time he was six weeks old until the end his devotion for me never waned.

With certainty this type of dog only comes once in a life time.  What a blessing and a gift that for a short while he was mine.

Sleep well sweet boy.   I am so missing your tracks.

  9. Debbie, I am deeply saddened at your loss. I can empathize. I am also an animal lover and have lost a few cats over the years and know it never gets easier. I still miss one cat that I had for 14 years and she died in 2002. Sending you a warm hug.

  15. Debbie, I am so sorry for your loss. Like many others here I also know the loss felt when a beloved animal friend moves on. It's been 10 years since mine left but I still have those moments when something she did comes back to mind and makes me smile or laugh when remembering. My thoughts and prayers are with you my friend.

  23. Oh Debbie, how sad for you to have lost such a special companion! I am sure that you were just as special for him. ((Hugs))

  24. Debbie - there are no words to ease the pain you are feeling. What is it about our German Shepherds that make them a part of us? Our Jade is eleven and having some serious health issues - maybe that's partly why tears are on my cheeks - but mostly - it's because I know that ache so well. Goodbye Sweet Sarge - give Shelby lots of hugs - she is grieving too.

  35. Debbie--so sorry you have lost your doggy love. I have an elderly dog I love dearly, and know it will be so painful when she goes. I'm glad you had him in your life, though--and wish you healing from the pain of losing him. Consider yourself hugged.

  36. My once in a life time was named Mr Peter R Goodone. When he was brought to us he was approximately 18 months old. His deliverer called him Mister. We called him Pete. Over the next ten years he earned his name. He died 5.30.13. As with your guy, Petey was a wonderful guy who devoted his life to me. I cherish his memories and am thankful for all he gave. Thank you for sharing a picture of your other man.

  40. Deb, just was able to get back on... I just read about Sarge... What a beautiful companion , gorgeous and sweet. I am so so sorry . We will see them again, you know that..
    You were blessed to have him in your life.. I am partial to Shepherds as my daughters life always revolved around them.. and still does.
    Our hearts get broken when we lose our animal friends, no matter what else we have lost , it doesn't ease it at all.BJ
