Jaeger Keene

German Shepherd-ish

Passed away on March 22, 2022

Jaeger arrived to me by way of my (now ex) wife. I did not like him at to start with. He was unruly. To have in my existence, I needed for him to behave. Oddly, it took him like a sizzling moment. He responded nicely to education. He understood hand indicators and I even taught him German instructions.

He looked intense when he was young, but he was a light big. Super sensitive boy. Just a heart of gold.

When my marriage ended, I demanded Jaeger as element of my divorce settlement. My ex agreed. He was an previous gentleman by then. The past 3 decades of his everyday living, he needed hundreds of care. The vet bills have been nuts, but I needed to give him every 2nd that I could. He was normally content, proper up until the finish. He resisted the enjoyable shot, due to the fact we had bacon on his past working day. He realized there was extra, so the vet stated “um…just permit him finish, I guess.” LOL that is my guy! After the bacon was absent, she gave him one more shot and he went into a deep slumber. He could last but not least unwind all the way. He slept with his head on my leg and I cuddled him until finally the last shot. Then he was absent. He died at residence, with me and…with bacon. As it should really be.

He broke my coronary heart. I question I’ll ever have a further pet. There is NO dog out there as best, as loyal and as loving as him. My environment will never be the similar, but I’m grateful that I was supplied the gift of his enjoy.

I hope he’s running, devoid of discomfort. Leaping more than fences and treeing squirrels. I require to consider which is legitimate.

I nevertheless cry for him. My heart aches. Did I do the right issue? He could scarcely wander..he needed assist standing. He hurt, despite his a lot of pain meds. But does he forgive me?

I fret each and every day. ?

I enjoy and miss out on my derp boy.
