Prince - very big boy

by Sandra

Prince was an extremly big GSD. He was 46 pounds at 8 weeks.

By the time he was 2 years old, he was 152 pounds and solid muscle. He would stand on his hind feet and was 5 foot eight and a half.

He was my best friend. Sadly, I had to put him down 3 weeks ago. I miss him dearly.

He was 15 years old. The vet said she never seen or heard of a German Shepherd living so long or how big he was. He had hip dysplasia and a form of MS in dogs.

The best dog in the world.

Well, after my big boy passed I really missed him. My daughter seen how sad I was and went and brought me another German Shepherd - a female.

I've had her for two and a half years now. She's very smart. She can say, "Mama." It's very funny. My big boy can never be replaced, but she's special in her own way and we love her just as much.

She's a lot smaller then Prince. She weighs 64 pounds and shes black and brown.

My deepest condolences on Prince's departure.

Sandra, for all pet owners this is the most difficult time for all of us, the loss of our beloved pets. I feel your pain as well. I have lost several through the years. The worst one was Lady killed by a car when she stepped outside the gate.

We all remember them altogether with their particular personalities. Wish you the best and hope you can find another Big Boy that can live up to his legacy.

Take care.

So sorry to hear about the loss of your big boy.

I`m sure he was your "once in a lifetime" dog.

But time will heal the pain if losing him and one day you will love another dog, in a different way.

My old fellow is 10 years old now and he's a big boy too and so Macho. I love him more than anything in this world. I dread the day i have to face life without him.

But I have got a pup who is 12 months old now and I hope he will ease the pain of when I lose my old fellow. I love pup but not as yet, like half as much as I love my old fellow. x
