I was shopping at the Montgomery Mall and walked into a shoe store. A worker was asking customers if they were interested in adopting a dog. When she asked me I said that I couldn't because our German Shepherd Alexa was a prima dona princess and would not like having the competition. She kept on trying to sell me on her dog, and I thought to myself, Ok I'm going to ask her what breed her dog is and if she says German Shepherd, I am going to be in big trouble. Sure enough after asking her what the breed is she tells me that her dog is an eight month old German Shepherd. Well, a few days later "Ginger" (later named Zoey) came to live with us. She and Alexa got along great. That is how my little Zoester came to live with our family.
My sweet Zoey went to Heaven on March 30, 2011. She had DM really bad and could no longer walk around without help. I miss her so much and even 9 months later, I still cry (as I am now) when I think of her. She was my one and only canine soulmate and there will be a hole in my heart that no other dog will heal.
My pictures show another dog laying next to Zoey. That is our precious Winnie also known as MooMoo. I don't have a profile set up for her because she is in Heaven. We adopted Winnie from a rescue in Harrisburg when she was 13 months old. We brought Zoey with us to make sure they were ok together and everything seemed fine. About three months later Winnie started a fight with Zoey. We tried everything imaginable, short of having Cesar Millan come to our house, to help her with her issues. Most of the time she and Zoey were fine, but whenever she had any anxiety or became worked up over anyone else other than her family coming into the house. She would direct her frustration out at Zoey. Usually we could see the warning signs and would separate them, but sometimes it would happen so fast.
People could not understand why we kept her for as long as we did. (5 years). They did not see the wonderful, loving, sweet side of my Winnie Moo. They did not see her bathing us with kisses all over our faces, or the way she would lay with us and just wanting to be near us.
She started to have mild seizures late last year, which caused more anxiey for her. In January there was a really bad fight and we knew we had to let her go to heaven so she would not have anymore anxiety. It was the hardest decision we had to make, but she wasn't going to get any better. It also wasn't fair for Zoey to have to deal with it either.
I don't think I will ever get over having to make the decision to put Winnie to sleep. She was only six years old. I miss her so very much. I have a friend who works with a local GSD rescue and she said Winnie never would have been placed due to her agression and had a longer, better life with us than she would have with anyone else. But of course that does not ease my pain of her being gone.
