German Shepherd Anubis (Nubie), Rest in Peace

by Catherine Lyon
(Brownwood TX)

Nubie was our solid black GS straight from Germany and looked just like the Egyptian god Anubis (hense the name). We got him at 3 years old from a GS breeder that thought that Anubis would be a great fit to our family. He was correct.

Anubis was perfect fit for my family of three children. Nubie loved to be loved by all, he roamed the woods with my middle son or ran alongside my son's bike (no leash was ever needed),he layed in front of the mirror with my daughter watching her change clothes millions of times, and loved to lay on the couch with my youngest son playing video games or romping together in a game of soccer.

Anubis loved to be in the kitchen with me when I cooked, he was the official family taste tester (a job he took very seriously!).

We had to finally put Nubie down because he not only had hip dysplasia and hearing loss, but he also developed cancer that affected his eyes.

We did not let the Vet take him off alone, our whole family layed on the floor with Anubis as he gently fell asleep in the Vet's private office.

We only had Nubie for 7 years, but those 7 years were with the best friend that any one of us could ever have had. We love and miss Anubis. Sleep well Nubie, you are forever loved!

CSuch a sad story. Do you still have contact of Nubies breeder? What is their kennel name? Would you ever consider getting another dog from them?

I really hope you will find happiness again in owning another amazing dog, what a lovely family you sound. Take care
