A farewell

A couple months ago my boy Baron passed away. He was about to turn 11. As most everyone thinks about their own dog, he was the best and sweetest dog ever - for me it is that simple.

About 10 years ago when I got Baron, I found the DobermanTalk forums and was interested and marginally active here. At that time Baron was a pup or a young lad and I enjoyed sharing a few pics of him and seeing and discussing other people's dogs. I distinctly remember this Rainbow Bridge subforum and how I dreaded the thought of ever having to make a post in here about Baron. Even though I haven't been active here for years, I still remembered the Rainbow Bridge, and I feel like making this post will be closure here. And well, the time has come.

To everyone that has lost their dog - remember the love they showed you (and you showed them), and remember all the good times you had.

To everyone living with their doberman (or other pet) now, enjoy the time you have with them to the fullest and give them one extra head pat or cheek scratch...

I'm sorry. Eleven is a ripe old age, but no matter how old they get, they're never with us long enough.

BvW. What a nice thought provoking post.

I am sorry for the loss of your boy. It is always tough. And yes... Over the years, my consolation has been the knowledge that although they are gone.... I will always have them in my memories.

Baron... Run free

Condolences to you on your loss of Baron - I have a boy that will be 11 in December, and I dread the day that I have to say goodbye.... I hope it is still a long ways away. These dogs take a piece of your heart with them when they pass.....
