Long term Shepherd nut

Hi to all,

I've been a shepherd nut all of my life and have had two beautiful dogs from pups. The first was from the 70's and was from the 'Ramacon' breeding kennels near Romford. Ramacon was the kennel that Ramacon Philanderer and Ramacon Swashbuckler (best of breed at crufts) came out of, you should look those up on the internet. My latest, and now sadly passed, beautiful girl was from Jasueter breeders from Essex and her mum was from the great family Hunegrab where the great Elmo von Hunegrab (forgive me for the spelling of that) originated and was best of breed at Crufts for about 3 years in succession.

I belong to GSDUK, Mygermanshepherd, K9 gallery amongst the forums and face book pages.

My last girl has just passed with a super rare disease called Myasthenia Gravis which caused megaesophogus which in turn gave her Pneumonia. She passed with our faces cuddled together at the Royal Veterinary College in Potters Bar on the 4th July. The jury is out as to whether over vaccination caused her to have a diminished immune system allowing the MG to get a hold.

Well that's me then i'm happy to be aboard

Welcome Chris. Sorry for your recent loss. Enjoy your time with biggsd. I am forever amazed at the dogs that have been saved and the hard work put in by others on this forum. Don't tell them I said it, but there are some good hearts amongst the members of this site.
I started my journey of GSD ownership (rather than working) with a beautiful, chunky, straight back, puppy whose lineage was VDH pedigree, with a lovely mix of SchH champions and show VA recipients. Truth be told it made not a jot of difference , as I had no intention of joining the kennel club :) I was lucky to be blessed with her company for 15yrs and when she left me her legacy was that I would offer TLC, a warm bed and safety to GSDs in need.
Now , like Pamela said above, I'd never buy from a breeder. I have become a soft touch and will now only adopt oldies. Although I'll still foster any age :)

Brian keeps trying to tempt me into a rescue and I'm weakening but it may be a bit soon but it depends what comes along.

I understand what you mean about possibly too soon. Perhaps you could consider the same route I went down. When I lost my girl of 15yrs, I swore I would never have another dog, as the loss was too painful. Several weeks later, I found the lack of a furball made not only my house too big but even my room in the Mess too big. Which, considering the size of my room in the Mess, was some trick. So I started fostering, which helped me with my loss and helped dogs in need.
Admittedly, when I retired I eventually adopted but fostering was one of the best decisions I made.
Good luck whatever you decide.
