|I don't know why I'm posting this as I am crying as I'm doing this. I lost my Rogen nearly 3 weeks ago and I can't take the pain anymore. He was my first MY dog and he was my world.
I feel so cheated as he was going to turn only 8 years old in January. He was in Congestive Heart Failure, had an enlarged heart, two swollen legs and body, his liver was enlarged too or could have been a mass.
Has anyone else gone through this with their Shepherd? I don't know what I expect to get by answers, maybe some peace of mind?
The grief is so intense and I am so lonely. I am just so angry that his life was cut short. I know I did the right thing by putting him down. He could have been treated, but even then he may have lived only another 3-6 months and that's if he responded, but he would still have been suffering. I couldn't do that to him.
Sorry, don't mean to vent, but I can't stand the pain anymore. I'm thinking of adopting another dog (not a GSD this time, but maybe later), and I'm hoping this dog will help me heal.
In any case, was just wondering if anyone else lost a dog to what I described.
