Thank you everyone. I was just thinking. I found Loki in the urgent section of another gsd forum.
That was before this one ever existed. We really lucked out getting him.
He had already been taken from the sheriff's office to the kill center. It smelled like death.
I was presented this big skinny, stinky dog full of cuts being lead on a piece of nailer twine.
He was so gentle. We put him in the back of the van in a crater. He still hadn't made a peep. What ever we wanted was
Good with him. Such a wonderful boy. He was my shadow for so many years. Between Lacy. Clarke, Palla, he was the fourth that made up the heathens..
We still lived down in southern Ont. On a back road down be the river with no other houses.
We would go for a walk every night. I would stand at the end of the lane way, stretch my arms out, and say line up!
They would be all lined up. Palla and Loki on one side, Lacy andLarka on the other. I would have them sit and say stay.
We would then walk out down the country road. Sometimes, just a few feet, sometimes 20 or 30 feet. All eyes would be on us. Then I'd say OK.
Everyone would come peeling out onto the road,jostling with each other. This was there free play time.
But if we heard a car coming the werecalled back off the side and would sit and wait until they were told OK.
Those were the good days. The days of the four heathens.
How proud we were of them. How much love we gave and received.
One by one they started to age, First Lacy, breast Cancer. Palla, from seizures, Larka from spleen cancer, and now my final sweet boy. Loki
My heart is breaking I couldnt go in to work yesterday. I wanted to be with him. Today I'm a basket case.
Loki was always the quiet one, no matter what. He never complained.
Yesterday when I was walking him out to the truck, I noticed his penis sticking out.it was like that all the way to the vets.
Half way across the parking g lot he stopped and sat down. His penos was still out. I thought it was strange.
He came along when I asked him. But now on retrospect I dont think he was ready yet, his penis was out as a sign of fear.
He stopped to plead no. But I wasn't thinking straight it was supposed to be all about him, but I wasn't listening.
I just wanted to get it over with before I changed my mind and took him home. Well why didnt I?? Why?
I'm always second guessing myself. Did I do wrong, did I not listen?
I have two pictures of him. One is from August. One is from yesterday. He looked so small and sad and tired.
He wanted to be by us at every minute of the day and night. The day before, I came home to find him way put at the barn. He had wandered up there all on his own just to be with Wayne. 400' uphill, all on his own. How many times did his feet tangle and his steps falter?
My poor beautiful boy. My heart hurts so much I cant catch my breath .
I really hope there is a rainbow. It's what keeps me going somedays. Just to be with my sweet babies. The great heathens.
Farewell Loki. You walk has been restored to your beautiful lightfoot trot I loved so much. Your eyes are sparkling the dullness of age is gone.
Once more your ears can hear my voice saying I love you.

I have tears Sandra.

I second guessed Luc...he was still walking, not well, but he was, he was senile and aggressive, but did that mean he was unhappy?

We always wonder if we've made the right decision. You knew Loki, and you loved him, he loved you, and I'm sure you did make the right decision. It's hard though, I know. I hope you can be gentle to yourself right now, and let yourself grieve.

(((hugs))) if you want them.

What a beautiful tribute. Loki had a wonderful life with you. You ended his pain and took it on yourself ten fold. No one can ever tell if its the right time. I know he was much like Eli and I went back and forth on this one much like you did. We want to give them every chance possible, and we do. But there's finally that time when you know its right. I think you knew it was the right time. I'm so very sorry for your loss.
