Lisa mentioned in the name stats thread in General Discussion, the names of dogs that we've had in our families, that are no longer with us, and I have been hunting thru old photo's to let you all see them, unfortunately, they were before the advent of digi cameras, so i'v been trying to take a photo of a photo....with varying degrees of success.
But the 2 that have worked well are of our boy Rebel,
I haven't talked about him at all on here because I find it very hard,
he was a German Shepard, an absolute diamond of a dog, and a real gentleman, My mum got him for me when I was a boy, then when I moved out and set up home with Lisa he came with us, he lived to the grand old age of 14, when eventually he developed Arthritis in his hips and spine, it had been progressing for a few years, and we had to make the single hardest decision we've ever made, It was me who carried him to the vets, and i'm not ashamed to admit I was crying the whole time, it was awful, but he was in so much pain at the end, it was the only thing we or the vet could do for him, We loved him so much, and still miss him like mad, you all would have loved him, he was such a teddy bear...a rather big one mind!! He loved nothing better than a good old belly scratch,
Here he is, I think he's around 6 or 7 in these pics...
Thinking of you always big man
