Lost a best friend today...

as a few of you know i got a 9-month old white german shepard.(the giant cat Juan).

well he passed away early this morning from a heart attack. i took him to the vet and they recommended getting an autopsy done so off i went on an 1 1/2 hour drive to have it done. thats when we found out his heart was enlarged and had suffered a heart attack.
we new he had a murmur since his first vet visit and always had hoped it would go away.

Moses as we called him, was a happy go lucky fella that always wanted to play or just hang out. his favorite place was standing in between your legs, almost making it look like you were riding him. he had to be the most vocal dog i have ever owned. not really a barker, just a moaner and groaner. it made you think he was truely trying to talk to you.

he was my 8yr olds' dog and will be missed dearly by all of us. we were happy to have him around as long as we did.....as short lived as it was.

Very sorry to hear about your loss. Are heart attacks in German Sheperds rare?

I'm so sorry! I'm a dog person with two huskies. I can't imagine losing either of them. My most heartfelt condolences.

I think the vet may have just been simplifying what happend to your dog by calling it a "heart attack." But German shepards are known for various congenital problems. Either way my deepest simpathies, I know 1st hand losing a pet is tough.
