child, my spirit guide, my friend and companion for over 11 years, Palomar,
was put to sleep on 3/20/08. It was his time, but I'm devastated.
I'm hurting. I have lost a part of me.
Of all my German Shepherds over the years, Palomar was special.
different. He taught me to see and hear things I could have
imagined. It's his breed perhaps, a dog bred
to be focused on only his master, the Shepherd, and
the important job at hand. Protect the flock, and protect his
master. Stay focused. Nothing else matters in life.
is something more about this canine breed that's
difficult to explain. It's an
energy, and it's powerful. These shepherd dogs somehow
are able to read your mind -to get deep into your soul.
An ability perhaps only a 19th century Shepherd in the
German Highlands moving his flock with one of these
sheep dogs can understand. Two minds working together.
Telepathically, and in the spirit. Doing whatever it takes
to get the job done. If you are one of the fortunate to
have had one of these German Shepherd dogs in your family, then you
understand these words....and Palomar was all
Diablo drew wonder and praise from all who met him over
the years. He was intense, brave, playful, spirited,
affectionate, extremely smart, and often ruled the
household. He was strong, incredibly strong, as
many of his human friends who were dragged around the
yard will attest to. And he loved kissing babies and
friends, and all who would bend a cheek. But strangers
respected him as they would a loaded 45. If Palomar
accepted you, then you were allowed into the pack, and our family. You were now his friend for
life, forever...and he would never forget you.
My German Shepherd......My Spirit Guide, and the
protector of the pack...you were special.
You wanna go to the Teepee? It's time to move the flock.
It's time to move on..........
always be a part of me, Palomar. I was honored to be
your friend and companion.
just my dog and me.....
i never felt so free......"
