Sarge

14 years ago on June 3rd for our 25th anniversary I surprised my wife with an 8 week old red dobe that we named Sarge. He grew to a very tall 80 lb. beautiful and well mannered young boy. He always went everywhere I went in the car or for his favorite walks around our neighborhood. He was a very people friendly and very well trained by me his whole life. He was extra special when it came to loving.He was a kisser and snuggler. He loved playing frisbee and would catch that thing 5 ft in the air. About 3 1/2 years ago he came down with Wobblers and had surgery to take out 2 discs in his neck that were pinching the spinal chord. His rehab was long and he never really was 100% afterwords. He came down with arthritis in his back legs about a year later. We put him on medication and he was doing fairly well until late last fall. He started slowing down a bit and we shortened up his walks considerably. He was still a happy and playful boy up until one month ago. Good thing my wife was working from home the last 3 months. The last 2 days he was unable to get up and walk anymore. We put him down today, Monday June 15 on the anniversary of the birth of our first Dobe, Prince. Sarge was 14 and 2 moths old. Now I remember why it took us 10 years of being dog less. It was so hard to say good by. He did not fuss on the ride to the vet, and was like he was ready for what was going to happen. Prince our first boy lived 2 months shy of 15.

These passings always leave me in tears, for your loss, our own loss in the past, for the wonderful tribute you wrote for Sarge, that made me wish I had known him, but also for the blessing you must feel for having him in your life and knowing a Dobe such as he was. These dogs take a part of your heart with them and I am so sorry for your loss.

14 years! That's a good long time, but no matter how long they are with us it is never long enough. And they leave an extra big hole in our hearts once they are gone.

So sorry for your loss.

So , So sorry about Sarge , Like Aunt Bonnie said , they take a part of our hearts with them . But all the great times you all had together over all them years will always be with you and nothing can take them priceless moments from you and even in this bad , bad time - threw all the tears - they can make you smile , I know as well as many others on here that lost one that I found myself crying and trying to laugh and the same time - if that makes since .

Thoughts your way

Ahhh, loosing the dogs, especially when they were so much part of your life for so many years is hard. No doubt about that--but think of the many years you did have with Sarge.

And Sarge--go where the good dogs go--run like the wind and chase Frisbee's to your hearts content.

Thank you all, VERY,VERY, Much!!! It is good to know we all share the love of our Dobermans. They are truly a Loving breed of dogs. He loved my wife and I as much as we loved him. The house is just not the same without him here. He had a personality as if he was human. Thank You all again for all the kind words.

Only certain people will ever know the love of a doberman and you and your family have been blessed to be just that. Fourteen years is a very long life for Sarge and what a great life it was. What they give us, we can only hope to have given them in return. If only they could live with us forever....May God put his loving arms around you and your family.
