My Baer - My Hero - My German Shepherd - RIP
by Inken Hiller
I just lost my beautiful Baer after almost 13 years - my heart is broken and right now I am just crying...
Baer had always been a very headstrong, alpha male, it took a lot of training, which was at times unnerving yet completely exciting - we trained for obedience and protection. Baer could go from being the most loveable, cute, schmoozing puppy into a highly trained attack-dog to protect me.
He would watch my every move. He really proved his love , loyalty and dedication , though, when one day he literally dragged me out into our courtyard of our house in Florida for me to find my husband on the floor - he had suffered a heart attack and thanks to my amazing Baer would turn out just fine because he got help fast!
I know Baer saved my husband's life - he was just the smartest, most attentive companion I could have ever wished for... I feel my house lost 'it's heartbeat' ever since he died 10 days ago.
It feels empty and hollow, but I am thankful to have had him in my life and he will be forever in my heart.Total German Shepherd
