German Shepherd Dog

*** UPDATE *** Sadly, this past May 2009, our beloved Arthur developed an anaplastic sarcoma in his jaw, and the vets told us that we only had a few months with him. In July my husband & I had to make the terrible decision to end his suffering. He went to sleep gently, in my arms. He was only five years old, and we are heartbroken. I still cry every day. Rest in peace, my beloved little boy. Someday mommy will meet you again, and I will never let you out of my arms. This is the original profile for Arthur: Arthur is our 5 year-old German Shepherd boy. He has oily seborrhea, barks like a hound (instead of a GS), is not very bright, and we love him to death! He weighs 108 lbs, and is cute as a button. I call him my "Little Man". He's afraid of a lot of things: paper bags, hair brushes, wires, vacuum cleaners, and feathers!! But guess what? Arthur is NOT afraid of the 400 lbs black bears that we get in our yard! He wants to chase them! Arthr has a ball obsession, he loves anything from my plate, and of course, LOVES barking at the bears! He has the most kissable nose I've ever seen, and he's very silly. He's a glutton, too...When I feed him peanut butter on a spoon, he tries to eat the spoon, as well! He's always surprised that I pull the spoon away! When he's laying down, he slaps the floor with his paw until we come over to pet him. Very demanding! He is so loved & fussed over that it's kind of ridiculous. But we wouldn't have it any other way!!

Those are the BEST EARS EVER! My Shepherd's ears looked like that when he was younger, now one of them stands up, but the other doesn't!

I know how you feel. My german shepherd, Hannah, passed away in a surgery to get her fixed. She was only 5 years old. I still cry every time I think of her.
