Sherman - LNB Herman Bad 04/11/2009 - 02/21/2020

Recommended Posts

We lost our silly, goofy, gorgeous boy on February 21 10 days after his osteo diagnosis.  He came to us almost two years ago after his first family couldn't handle a dog and a toddler.  He was a big boy and we were able to get his weight back down to a comfortable 80 pounds.  He had the biggest neck I have ever seen on a greyhound.  His family told us that he was a very picky eater.  His first meal here he turned his nose up at his kibble and grabbed a chicken leg (we feed raw) and never looked back.  Was never picky, never missed a meal, and polished the bowl every time.  He loved his walks and his morning massage.  He would back into you for a good rub down and butt massage every day.  If you finished before he was ready, he would follow you and back into you again until he was done.  

We didn't have nearly enough time with him, but were lucky enough to have been able to do a lot of things, so his time with us was filled with fun, laughter, adventures and love. 

We miss you deeply Sherman and eventually we will all be ok.  Fancy is still a mess, as she is missing her BFF in the worst way, but is getting better.  

Run with the angels, big guy, as you were an angel here on earth.

My blog about grief The reality is that you will grieve forever. You will not get over the loss of a loved one; you will learn to live with it. You will heal and you will rebuild yourself around the loss you have suffered. You will be whole again but you will never be the same. Nor should you be the same, nor would you want to.

I am so very sorry that you had to say goodbye to your big goofy boy.

Only we know what a small price we pay for the love we have received from our pets. The sadness and loss, no matter how powerful it may be,  is an insufficient measure of the joy we have been given.....

Sherman, with his beautifully speaking bright eyes and the longest, squeakiest snake ever known to Dogkind in that picture.  Making us cry and smile at the same time.  What luck for you all that his first family couldn't handle him with a toddler.  That meant he got to come to a home where everybody -- EVERYBODY -- thought he was the greytest thing since sliced bread right chicken legs.  

:grouphug to you all.
