This is definitely one of my favorite threads and I have enjoyed EVERY photo posted so far. Please keep'em coming!

The first is a shot of Luke in Tahoe last year and the second is of him snoozin' last weekend while the kids made leaf piles in the front yard.

Awesome dog Sumoto!

Erin, he looks fantastic in those pictures. It's hard to lose one of these guys. We lost 2 of them a few years back and said that was it. But then after a couple of years Zeus some how appeared! Are you going to get another GSD?

Thanks, those were actually taken the day we had him put to sleep. It was very hard loosing him, especially at such a young age, he was such a good dog. The best dog I've ever owned!

I dont know if we will get another. It took us two years to find him, we researched the breeder, the parents, everything (he was a Schutzhund bred dog and the family had no history of HD) and he still ended up with hip dysplasia. That said, I am a bit scared to get another one again for the fear of losing them too soon. But only time will tell ;)

I hear ya. One of our males was diagnosed with HD at a fairly young age. But he lived to be about 13/14 years old. I can remember juicing him up on pain meds only twice in that time. So I don't think he was that bad off if the diagnosis was even valid. Actually the vet on Union Lake Rd. across from Arby's was the one who thought he had HD. Now we go to the vet on Cooley by the Entertainment Tonight video rental store.

Now that we have Zeus (after a couple years without dogs) I can't imagine not having a German Shepherd anymore. But Zeus is also the worst GSD we've ever had. What a crazy dog! When I head for bed he races me there to see who gets my spot on the bed. And if any TV is on in the house he's glued to it. Damn dog watches more TV than I do. And don't let him see a show with another dog in it either. If he does, he won't shut up until you turn off the TV. He'll growl at it, whine, yipe, do circles, sit in front of the TV tilting his head in strange directions and blocks everyone's view with his ears. Wait, did I say I couldn't imagine not having a GSD? Hmm...

PS. Putting him outside doesn't help either. He sits on the deck waiting for a squirrel to enter the yard or he'll watch the clouds pass overhead and go berserk when a plane or helicopter gets close. Ye-gads...

Jon.

Hear are a couple of my GSD Gauge (AKA dumb dumb) a 2yr old male, he is so simple minded I love him hes always good for a laugh and weighs in at about 95lbs. In the second shot he's on a king size bed that he likes to think is all his and does not like to share. These were taken with my Canon SD600 P&S and hopefuly I can get some recent ones with my new XTI. Also every one has some beutiful GSD's thanks for sharing.

This shot is five years old, taken on vacation without any of the good gear. Other than the shadow, I've always loved this shot of Prancer (left) and Zackery in the morning sun in Grand Teton NP.

Zack's gone now, and Prancer's old, but I love how regal they look against that majestic background! And the repetition of the pointy ears always makes me laugh!

Special note: The luggage tags they're wearing have our campsite number, campground phone number, and our 800 number on them!

Jon,

Thank you! Both boys are so well behaved, that the long down wasn't the problem.

It was an elk out on the point behind them and the pre-dawn walk through chipmunk-infested woods to get to the lake from the campground!

What we don't do for a shot! But that is truly one in a million, so thank you for saying so!

Lora
