    My Rex passed away last month of a stroke. He was 14 3/4 years old. I just wanted to post a tribute for him on this forum with his picture. He was a very sweet boy. He lived with 3 other Shelties and was the alpha of the pack - but in a very sweet way. He was never snappish or mean, very tolerant of the other dog's antics. I will miss him very much. rex-sketch.jpg

    I'm sorry to hear of Rex's passing although he had a good stretch of years. I lost my beloved Brooke in May to cancer. I hope your remaining Shelties, along with your memories, will bring you comfort. They leave a big hole in your heart when they go. :hugs

    What a beautiful boy Rex was, I'm so very sorry for your loss. I also lost my 11 year old to cancer 6 weeks ago, he too passed away very suddenly. Their absence is definitely felt for a long time. I also have two other Shelties and they've helped me cope in so many ways, I hope yours have helped you as well. A very beautiful tribute for Rex.:hugs

    I'm so sorry for your loss, Roberta. Rex was a beautiful boy. They are never with us for long enough, no matter how old they are. Sending you hugs.
