    Well we woke up this morning and our 8 month old GSD was dead. We were absolutely heart broken. I had an autopsy done and it turns out she had a birth defect. Her stomic was actually going through her liver. The vet said it was like a 1 in a million thing. ANd he said if we would have known it, there would still be nothing that could be done. I am just thankful she was able to have a happy life with us.

    My wife found her this morning and she came running in the bedroom saying Lady (my dog) is dead Lady is dead...I thought she was saying the baby is dead (my wife is pregnant) SO i was REALLY freaking out at first...and then i heard her say Lady...and of course that is better in comparison but I was still totally heart broken...just wanted to let you guys know.

    Sorry to hear of Lady dying.

    But There was nothing that could have saved her.

    When the pain eases maybe head out tho a shelter and rescue another.

    I'm so very sorry to hear of your loss. Eight months is plenty long to have made a real bond with her, of course.

    I'm sure glad it WASN'T your *baby*, but this is awful!

    Doesn't sound like she was in any pain, or she would have let you know. Probably, she passed on in her sleep, which is a blessing.
