Always Faithful Semper Fi

by Desiree
(United States)

Baruch was born on October 16th, 2001. He was a German Shepherd. They are said to be the most loyal of all breeds. I don't believe that -- all dogs are loyal as long as you treat them right.

He was a beautiful black and tan shepherd. His eyes were like fire, they were orange. They burned to your very soul when he looked at you. His temperament was "down to earth." He loved to play like any dog. He was faithful until the end.

He died of an enlarged heart on July 31st, 2012. I miss him so much. I grew up with him. I got him when I was 5. I am now 16.

We did a lot together. Our relationship was special because I never had many friends. My dog always looked for me as soon as I got home from school.

It's so hard to describe what an "awesome" dog he was. You would have had to have met him to understand. There are no words to describe him. I love you buddy.

Gone you are from this place.
Wish you were still here
but I'll always remember your face.
I hope in heaven you are there.
I just wanted you to know
that I still care.
I gave you my best,
now in God's arms you rest.
Someday I hope to be coming in
And we will be together again.
