Hi my name is Geri, my cousin referred me to this site. I just got through crying. You see I lost my Barron this year in August. I miss my baby. He was a German Shephard, he was only six years old, but a big 100 lb. My family and I had gone camping and our neighbor was taking care of him while we were gone, he also has a German shephard. Anyway when we got home after the weekend I noticed that Barron didn't look well. I tryed to feed him, give him water, talk to him. I took him to the vet, they took test after test, the vet told me that someone must have poisoned him, and that there was nothing much the vet could do because the vessels to his heart were deteriorating fast. The vet wanted to put him down, but I told him that I would rather take him home and keep him as comfortable as I could, he lasted two weeks. It was very hard to lose such a great person (dog). You see he was there for me when I had breast cancer, he along with my family help through all that I went through. I know now that MY BARRON is in a good place, he's probably wagging his big tail around and knocking things over. If Barron could read this: BARRON, MOMMY MISSES YOU VERY MUCH, I LOVE YOU.
