    sad to hear dog has passed on...but happy he will be frolicking in the big clover patch in the sky,fire hydrants every 10 yards and plurry HUGE beef cannon bones galore to chew on.... they give so much and take even more,be happy you made right decision at right time.

    I like to hope they will all be waiting for me to eventually join them.
    Sounds like he was a blessed to have found an "owner" like you as you were to have a dog like him.

    Thanks very much for your kind words guys, it means a lot to me.
    Since I'm on my own, it has left quite a gap in my life but I'm trying to keep busy.

    Words are hardly enough, but thoughts and aroha going out to you from up here. Never nice burying a mutt, even the goofy ones.

    Keep faith in that you've given him the best life you know how, and trust when the big wheel of karma comes round and you end up a mutt, you get a life with a GC like you.

    Every dog owner feels for ya, Rugerman. Dogs do for you what no human can, so they are always valued and greatly missed. Concentrate on the good times you had with him. I had to put down a long time 4 legged mate who saved my life a few weeks earlier. Sh.t that was hard. But his photo is up on my office wall and he will never be forgotten.
    Kia kaha bro. We've all got your back.

    A friend of mine has had several GSP's for hunting.

    His first and best passed away, and was replaced with a bitch that would trail bark and was no use.

    But he had young children, she had a lovely nature, and was perfect for them to grow up with.

    All things considered, her true gift was friendship, not a role as a working dog.

    Some of the idiots of the dog world have a valuable role that way.

    Thanks guys
    A guy at work says he wants to come back as one of my dogs, since he knows what sort of money and effort I put into them.
    I'm luckily in a position where I can spend what it takes to get them right if it's possible to get them right again. Unfortunately with Rocky there was a whole bunch of things all working together to fuck him up, and given his age and underlying diabetes, he just ran out of time
