    I knew this day was coming, but it truly came overnight. Yesterday my dog, Lucy, seemed fine, today she became lethargic and spit up blood. When I got her to the emergency vet in Boone, they ran a plethora of tests. After an X-ray they found a mass on her spleen that had probably ruptured. I feel the worst for my daughter. Lucy slept in her room since we brought Piper home from the hospital. Raise a glass and toast the unconditional love they give. Lucy you will be missed old girl. She truly was the smartest dog I have ever seen, and one of the best guard dogs. Rest In Peace

    Sorry for your loss. Putting a dog dog is the hardest thing I have ever had to do. I still want to call his name when looking at another GSD.

    RIP Lucy. My condolences to you and yours. I got an old feller myself who is getting pretty creaky but is still generally happy. That day is coming though.

    …….sorry to hear of your family's loss. She was a really pretty girl...….. I'm a sucker for a brownish colored female. It helped me to remember that I helped to give a good friend a good life...….. and that's all that matters when it's all said and done.
