My Destroyed Heart - RIP Saul

It's taken me a few weeks to finally come here and post this news. I lost Saul on April 7th to DCM complications. In 2014, this forum was with me when I rescued him in Maryland and we began our journey. It wasn't easy but it has been beyond just simple words how fulfilling it was to watch him go from the Demodex/goo covered dobe to the gorgeous Doberman he manifested into. God he was gorgeous. I find myself coming home and just staring at the indention in the sofa, left from where he always laid, sleeping with his blankets and wondering aimlessly around the house when I'm off. Try as I might, the sadness is choked in my chest and wont come out.

All I got in this World is My Word and My Balls... and I don't break'em for Nobody[/CENTER]

I remember when you first came on this forum and posted about finding Saul, his condition and everything that you were doing for him. You loved him the minute he entered your life.

I am so very sorry to hear of your loss and pain. Rest in peace sweet Saul.

I remember you, too. What a difference you made in Saul. I am just so glad it was you who found him when you did. It was meant to be and I am sure he made a difference in you.
The pain of that loss is real and I hurt for you today. I am so sorry.

USMC Doberman,

So sorry for the loss of your beloved Saul...
Thank you for providing such great care of Saul during his second life and also for all your previous multiple adopted Dobes.

Please post a few favorite pictures of Saul, if you care to, as a tribute to him.
(I like the one of him spoiled, hogging your entire bed)

I'm so thankful compassionate persons like you exist who will foster & adopt Dobermans that need care, even those with major medical issues.

Hope your heart will heal from this sorrow and you will experience a Doberman's special love again in your future.

I'm so sorry to hear this but he made you happy for the time you had him and you made your second hand dog more than happy for the remainder of his life with you.

Run free and be well Saul...

So sorry to read of your loss.

I do understand what it is to lose a canine member of your family, I still miss a mixed breed dog we had that passed 10 years ago. We only had our Jasper (the Dobie with spina bifida we rescued November 2017) for 9 weeks. They are such a noble breed and we will always miss Jasper!

I know that Saul is now running free with our Jasper (he was paralyzed in the back end).

Know that you are doing a good thing by rescuing.

Very glad you came into his life and he into yours. The loss is suffocating and it takes a long time for memories to bring smiles instead of tears.

All Dobermans, all rescues. With the exception of Bert, their ashes are set in a curio in my living room.
