I understand so well, We had two Dobermans, one mine and the other my hubbies..........well they both belong to us but the two chose their masters............mine was the oldest and her name was By Design's D' Oblique, I called her Dee. She was the most lovable dog and was always right by my side. She was 12 years old and I had to make the decision for her sake to let her go. I sat on the floor with her for days, hugging her and crying all over her. I went with her to the vet and sat on the floor with her laying on her fav blanket. As a nurse I knew exactly what was happening and when she left me a piece of my heart went with her...........I loved her so. She was my beautiful show dog, my best friend.
I know how you feel. God Bless
