On Oct. 10, 2005

On October 10, 2005 my last German Shepherd, Shadow Walker went on to his next life. Not to rehash the whole thing, but to give a little info on him. Shadow was 10 years old. He had hip dysplasia and a few other health problems. But, till the very end he was shultzhund. Shadow, was a great dog in every way, just what you would want from a German Shepherd. I miss him so much and only recently have I been able to really talk about him without crying my eyes out.

Anyway, I wanted to tell you about him, because it was because of Shadow and his personality and intelligence that I wanted a Great Dane. I knew when I got Gunther that I would never have another German Shepherd like Shadow. Gunther's breeder told me how smart Great Danes were, and I seen it in his Danes, and I'm so happy to say that Gunther picked up right where Shadow left off. Though he has taken me in a different direction in training, etc, I enjoy having him with me all the time, and all he offers to me and my family more than words can say.

Remember that sometimes it's not what we bring into our dogs life that makes a difference, but what they bring into ours.
