    So my best bud, protection dog and guardian is gone.
    He was 10 years old but seemed in fine shape. His rear left leg would get gimpy on line walks but other than that he seemed in fine health.
    Yesterday before going out to a family reunion my wife let the dogs out to do their bathroom duties.
    When she called them to come in our male gsd Storm didn't come. He just lay down in the yard.
    Apparently he had a heart Attack and died.
    We are completely heartbroken and gutted by his passing so unexpected.
    RIP Stormy you will be missed but never forgotten.
    I love you buddy!! 9c3cfe8df61ff86ab8a1cfa7ce8e647a.jpg

    Had the same thing happen to one of my little dogs a year ago. Apparent heart attack. Showed no signs of anything wrong.

    Sorry for your loss. I know how hard it can be to lose a friend like that. I still get teary eyed whenever I think of her.

    Over the years, I have lost too many "best friends."
    The thing is, not one of them knew my name.
    But they loved me more than anyone else ever did.

    It is very hard to loose a member of the family like Storm. I say this as my best buddy Bear lays here next to me knowing the inevitable will one day come. I send you and your family my sincere sympathy and hopes of comfort knowing that Storm will live on in your hearts.

    I am sorry for your loss. No words have I, that can fix how you must be feeling. Mojo to you to get past the grieving and on to remembering him well.

    Although it does not help your pain, I'm really sad for you and your family. We also have 2 gsd and the oldest is now 12 and can hardly walk anymore. I will cry for weeks when she passes. She is the one in my avatar. My thoughts are with you.

    So sorry for your loss, my nephew went thru the same thing with his shepherd within the last year.
    What great dogs they are.

    I am really sorry to hear this. Ten years old seems way too young to be passing over but considering how close you were to him, fifty would seem too young too...
