There just are no words

There just are no words. Only time can heal the pain. Remember the good, you were both lucky to have shared the time together.

sandy2233 So sorry to hear about Baron. We all felt like we knew you through DT. He was lucky to have you as a parent.

Baron is Home

His memorial table:

Flowers and cards:

His paw prints. The orange one I had done a few years ago at Petco; the painted one I had done by a vendor at DPRPA's Jamboree; the white one is the last one from the vet.

LizM Lois ... deepest condolences, sending you love and tender thoughts. I deleted my FB account last year, but do receive the snippet DT emails. I usually file them marked "read later", but today I was compelled to open the message and saw the sad news. Baron - what a handsome and accomplished marvel! He thrived on your love and devotion. Thank you for sharing him with [all of us] - lucky you that he blessed and graced your life. RIP Beautiful Boy.

eegreen Lois, you know my heart is breaking for you both. Baron was the most gentle Doberman I have ever met. He had a wonderful life full of love. He will be missed

What a wonderful life he had!

I was comforted you know Baron passed quickly, in the presence of those he loved the most. Hopefully, his battle and experiences with the dreaded DCM disease will help future Dobermans conquer this scourge. If only all Dobes could live a long a life as Baron did. Thanks for you & Baron's contribution to DCM research.

We'll miss Baron immensely on the DT forum and we're hoping you might find some time to post a short pictorial tribute to him.
Here you go spocksdad. Just a very few of my favorite collars:

TNfisher Oh no, I was hoping my eyes were deceiving me this early in the morning...I am so, so, sorry for your loss.

RIP, regal Baron.

elly So sorry for your loss Lois, My thoughts are with you in this difficult time.

Coco Loco I am so sorry to hear this. I know exactly what you mean about not having anyone to follow you around the house because it's almost a month that Coco has been gone.

You were both so lucky to have found each other and shared such wonderful years together. You took such good care of your handsome fellow. Baron will definitely be missed by all.

falnfenix Oh Lois...I'm so very sorry.

Mireille My eyes are full of tears. RIP you beautiful dog. Lois Many of us know your pain and are grieving with you. Be well.

Aerissa Very sorry for your loss.

blueberry I'm so sorry! I've been a fan of his for years. Run free Baron
01-17-2019 09:51 AM
ellierose I am so very sorry for your loss. As others have said, I have come to know Baron also. I felt connected because my first girl dobe was from Briarwood.
I also believe the superior care you gave him added many years to his life. Bless you and may time make his passing more bearable.

bleh60 Dammit.

Lois it is terrible to hear this. He beat DCM for so long. I often felt he was the poster child for it- a great and long life even after diagnosis.

I do hope the monitor will bring some help to someone else in the future. Every little bit of information helps fight it- I like to think.

All my best.

CRDobe Oh no no no.
I also feel like I have come to "know" you and Baron, though I have been on DT for less than 5 years. I am heartbroken for you - please know you are in my thoughts and I send much love.

Fitzmar Dobermans I know I've already posted my condolences on FB, but I will say it again here. I am so sorry for your loss of Baron - he was a very cool dog, and very lucky to fall into your life. He had a much longer life than he could have expected due to your excellent care of him and the DCM he was diagnosed with. I'm so glad that you were right there when he went - I'm sure it was quick and relatively painless for him. I've been through the exact same thing twice so I know how it goes. We are so shell shocked when it happens, but eventually thankful that they did not suffer.
Hugs to you and your husband - I know your home must seem so empty without him.

Cressrb I felt like Baron belonged to all of us. He added to much presence to this forum. Such a loss, but such a joy. RIP cool Baron. You set the bar so high and carried it with dignity.
Crying for you today, Lois

Meldrew79 I have been thinking about you all day, Lois. There are no words and for that I'm so very sorry.

4x4bike ped Dax... I am truly feeling your pain. Yet, I am also feeling your comfort with respect to Baron's life's journey given the odds against him. What a fabulous dog.

In my opinion he and you beat this f***ing disease, the bane to our chosen breed. I can only hope for the same with my boys.

The remembrances and eternal fondest that you both will cherish forever is priceless.

To Baron... Run free. Live free. When you run into my boys... Say "Hi". They will be your friends.

I have to go get a tissue now. I can't see to continue typing.

dobebug Like Meadowcat, I've been following Baron by post and picture since he first arrive here.

My heartfelt condolences on your loss--they are really never with us long enough--no matter how many years we have their company.

I'l be thinking of you and Baron will be in my thoughts and those of many of the members here.

Go Baron, go where all the good dogs go, be well and happy even thought we'll miss you.
