Hey Friends of ATS, There are so many of you! My house is suffering a loss of our Matriarch Shep... Mamma dog my Shatzie has passed away. She has been by my side for 12 years and I am really sad she isn't here to have dinner with me today. I hope she will remember who I am when we meet up again in the next life... We buried her in the garden, Its ironic cause I used to get mad when she would run through the garden knocking over everything especially if she was chasing a cat.

I miss my dog!

Sorry for your loss, I just lost my old lady about 6 months ago. In the meantime my puppies in my avatar want to offer you a puppy hug and a big lick to cheer you up. She will def remember you and may even hang around and watch over you! My first dog who was an Akita is still with me, I see her shade all the time, so does my husky lol.

I am so sorry for your loss!!!
Dogs are more than pets, they are friends, they are family members.

Like you, I hope to see my dogs again one day!
And, I am pretty sure we will.

Aww man, condolences and cyber hugs brother and of course she will remember you. It is such a special relationship we share with our canine cohabitants and the loss is beyond words. I can only imagine cuz my first dog is still with me and 12 also and every time a friend experiences the loss, I ponder our inevitable day and I lose it a bit. Instead of offering advice, I just want to say thanks for sharing this with us so that we are aware and can take a moment to know of you and Shatzie and of her departure. I care, as do many here and wish strength and healing for you.

@intrptr - thanks for that, I had never heard of it and it is a powerful reflection...and a tear summoner

I'm gonna go hug my girl now...

Shatzie was a bad girl lol she was a straight up junk yard dog, things that make up childrens nightmares... she snarled, barked, threw out the teeth like gang symbols. Fast and nimble... Up until a week ago she was also my body pillow, my dinner partner, all summer she guarded my grill, she was a gamer too she loved when I played Forza I think she liked the sounds of the cars... She was also insanely jealous she HATED EXTREMEMLY HATED when I came home with a girl she was so jealous she would ram her snoot right up butts literally, she never bit any girl I brought home but she had one pinned in the bathroom sitting in front of the bathroom door lol that was a good story. When out welding she would lay outside and bark and carry on like the zombie **cking apocalypse when she knew I couldn't hear and see with the hood down. She was a master thief of grilled items and sweet bologna from picnic tables, Yogi bear learned everything he knew from Shatzie. When I broke my leg in 2014 I kid you not she would bark and wine so someone would open the gate at the stairs every morning so she could come up and jump in bed with me... I used to lay with my head on her like a pillow when she was curled up on the floor and watch south park together. She was my friend, my guardian, and my dog. With tears in my eyes I am going to say she is missed sorely, I am glad that she isn't sick anymore but is missed and loved.

Thank you for listening

My condolences to you and your family. I have lost many close pets throughout my life thus far. Each time it's most painful and almost unbearable. You cannot replace them, only continue to hold a spot in your heart for them and remember the love.

My family and I put down our beloved cat Nicole (Cole) of 20 years on November 9, 2015, my birthday. She had all of our hearts. We adopted Izzabella (Izzy Bee) on December 26, 2015, at the age of 10 weeks. We love Cole still, but even Cole would've loved Izzy Bee! I hope your heart finds a way past the grief and sadness, and into the eyes of another adoring animal.

Peace to you and your family.

No words for losing a family member. Sorry to read about your loss. I'll be laying my Beagle to rest any day now and just trying to add to the many memories. Hopefully time heals your loss and the memories are a treasure you get to keep.

They add to our lives as much as we add to theirs.

May Shatzie RIP. And who knows, maybe we get a reunion on the other side.

Stay blessed!

Thank you..,

We have another German shep his name is Fritz he is 8 He is a big member here at the house but he is the kinda guy that isn't as smart as Shatz but what he lacks in brains he makes up in sheer strength and violence of actions he is so extreme and proud everything he does is done so purposefully and intense he don't catch the ball, he stops the earth from spinning and picks the ball like an apple... he misses her too he is my other buddy, my roomates and I are already talking about getting him a new puppy to teach how to be a dog... He is a good boy hes just dumb like me and goofy as hell too... me and him do guy stuff like snousing for chicks and peeing on trees together

Been there too many times. We all know the pain and loss. All we can do is add memories for future love from new loves. But we never forget.

Know you are hurting deeply-love is love whether a person or a pet. My sincere condolences and hopes for a brighter day soon.

Sorry, bro-man.

I've had my heart ripped out every 15 -20 years like clockwork... but it's worth it as those furry guys make this world so much better.

Skoal.

My heart goes out to you and yours.

I can remember just a few years ago when I lost my German Sheppard, it nearly killed me. He was 13 years old and died peacefully in his sleep. It was heart breaking to wake up to him and to go through it but the ATS family were there for me then and truly helped me get through it. I was in tears (which you have to hide being nearly 30 at the time) for weeks on end and had to hold everything in to those around me because of course men aren't supposed to get emotional over a dog apparently. But like I said these guys here do really help you get passed the worse of it.

My own advice to you is let it out. No matter what it's the mistake I made in keeping it all bottled up. I've currently got three dogs: Two Huskies (Delboy and Rodney) and still got the old girl Midnight (German Sheppard who'll be15 next month) she's starting to show her age more and more as time goes on, her hips are going and she gets tired and I know that her time is coming to an end but this time I'm going to just let the tears flow, but the most important part and the mistake many of the ATS people told me not to do was lock myself away, I hid away from the world and I think it made it worse. So try to go out, go for a walk somewhere where you enjoyed taking the dog and remember the good times it'll make you cry but also make you smile (and sometimes do that strange crying laugh lol) even the bad times can creep in sometimes like when you told your pet off but that'll just make you laugh as well in the end.

As Alec Baldwin said in Friends while holding a picture of Monica's dog "Bow Wow old friend. Bow Wow"
