Dieter came into our lives when he was 8 weeks old, he was the dog I had always dreamed of having since I was a little girl. He grew up so fast into such a beautiful dog, both inside and out. He was very active and loved going for runs with my husband. But at the same time he enjoyed curling up on the couch with me for a good petting. He also made the house seem so safe when my husband was away, which was quite often. He had his first knee surgery in March 2003 for a torn ACL and three years later his other ACL needed to be replaced in April 2006. I’ll never know how much pain he was in, he was a very strong dog both mentally & physically.

Our little soldier so brave and strong, in your mind you could do no wrong
But your days were no longer full of fun, and this was a battle that could not be won
So we’ll raise our glass to you each day, and in our hearts you’ll always stay

We miss you…..
Love Always, the Schmidts
