My Beautiful Steffi

I lost the love of my life six weeks ago. The pain is so intense. I don't know how to get over my beautiful german shepherd, who was put to sleep at home on a beautiful sunny day.

She was just over nine years old and had anal furunculosis, which was under control. But a year ago, she developed CDRM. Eventually she could not get up and we made the saddest decision of our lives. She was put to sleep.

One of the hardest things I keep remembering is that she didn't want to go and she tried to bite the vet administering the lethal injection. I feel so guilty and sad, yet I know the right decision was made as she did not have any quality of life that a proud german shepherd should.

I love her more than anything and I just wish the pain would go away. I just wish she was with me now.

This picture was taken minutes before she was taken from me.
