What a beautiful GSD, so majestic and strong. My condolences to your loss of Nick, he was a handsome canine for sure.

May I add my condolences as well. Just from his picture one can tell he was strong, noble, and loyal. RIP Nick.

Thanks guys....

Been a few years since my GT is gone, but the F07 Forum is still the class act of the 'Fest.

Buried my big fellow just a year ago, in our backyard, and we planted a willow oak over his grave. I watched for the buds of spring, and am sad to see the leaves starting to fall.

We have his Nephew, now, Donnie, and the picture below shows him looking over Nick's grave.

Thanks for your kind words, and enjoy your GTs!

Love this pic! Donnie is a handsome pup, and no doubt he'll follow in the great footsteps of Nick

***128077;***128077;***128077;***128077; I love pictures of dogs surveilling their "domains" and/or engaged in sentinel duty over the grave of a relative who has crossed the Rainbow Bridge.
