Remembering Alpha, Our German Shepherd Dog

Alpha, our German Shepherd dog, left us forever on Feb 28, 2021.

She was diagnosed with Pyothorax (causes unknown). The chest infection was so severe that her heart did not respond to CPR during surgery. Alpha was very healthy and energetic otherwise. She loved chasing balls. Alpha opened her eyes big and wide whenever we went out to play. In two weeks, she would have turned 3 years old.

We have done our best to give Alpha the best life possible. We hope she was happy in her life. We attempted to write down all the happiness she brought to us, but it’s really hard to capture all the lively moments in writing. Therefore, we made this video of our favorite Alpha moments.

Time will go on, and these moments will remain.

Alpha will be forever missed❤️

Here’s a post about Alpha when she was very young.

A Two-Week Doggie Vacay — Time well spent? Yes.


I think the time was very well worth it, and I’m on my way to grow her into a happy doggie. There’s no way I can get Alpha’s puppy time back once time passes. I missed the time that I could have used to boost my own work skillset/knowledge, but that’s probably can be done at a lot more times.
