Thank you, everyone. What brings me some comfort is knowing that I didn’t wait until Grimmi was “on his last legs,” but brought him in at a mutually-agreed-upon time so he could “go out on top” as much as possible. He deserved that his transition day would be a happy day for him. Yes, I fell apart afterward, and the emotional pain for me continues, but this price to pay is an honor for the privilege of 12 years of so very much love, laughter, and adventures. What a gift we have to spare suffering to dogs who trust us. As much as I’m hurting now, I can’t help but feel grateful for the time with my sweet Grimmi. With such wonderful memories, the laughter he gave me continues, and helps the healing.

Oh Patty, I'm so sorry to hear about Grimm. I haven't been here for quite a while either but just logged in to search for information on rimadyl and other medications that might help Heidi with her hindquarter weakness which has suddenly accelerated. When I looked in the Topics column, I saw Grimm's name and my heart sank too. I'm in tears and choked up after reading your post.

Grimm was one of the most beloved and memorable GSDs on this board. I loved hearing about all his adventures and his silly escapades. We all fell in love with him just from seeing his pictures and hearing your vivid and funny stories about him. He was such a handsome, goofy guy, full of personality.

So many of the dogs that we've gotten to know so well over the years are getting to be elderly and many are passing away as time goes by. Each one that we read about breaks our hearts and makes us long for the days when many of us had recently joined the board to seek advice, give advice and sympathy, share stories and pictures, and generally get immersed in the all consuming world of German Shepherds. It was a wonderful time and you made it even more fun and interesting with your posts.

Take care, Patti, and know that many people are thinking of you. I hope that your health is improving as well. I hope you continue to post on the board. --Karin & Heidi

I'm so sorry, Patti. 12 years is a good, long life, but it's still hard to let them go.
