We Love You, Atom

Atom the Guard dog

Atom the Guard dog

Atom was a German shepherd. He was very protective and didn’t get along with people that well, but he was a very tough guard dog.

He had a very soft coat and was very huggable. His right ear was folded; it never went straight, unlike his siblings' ears.

Atom, when he was born, was not breathing. My uncle resuscitated him. Now they are both gone.

He loved chasing laser light.

I will miss him. It was so sudden, and now he’s gone.
