Monday a week ago, our Doberman passed away. We had her for 12 and 1/2 years. She was the best companion – the last 3 years have been very hard on my wife, as her father passed away and our disabled daughter was in the hospital twice for weeks at a time; one visit was an extended period in the ICU. My wife relied on the dog for comfort and companionship, so the loss of her baby is especially difficult. “Loo”, her nickname, was a protector of everyone in the house and the most gentle of demeanor. We have missed her quite a bit.
