Thanks for the kind words. He was a pretty special dog both in personality and resilience.
I do feel bad for mom though. All growing up we had mutts around, and they were farm dogs. Then she thought she would try to get a German Shepherd to try to assure the traits she wanted. Well that dog got run over with a tractor about 6 months after she got it. And then this one and all it's problems. He was about 2.5 years old. Most of the rest of them had to be put down because of old age. I'm sure she's frustrated because she's spent a LOT more money and tried to do everything right with these shepherds.
She was really attached to this one and took it pretty hard.
