My husband posted all of these great pictures of Rex, our gentle German Shepard, and I couldn’t help but stroll down memory lane, reminiscing about his adolescent times, he literally ate the house and once our daughter had to go to school and tell her teacher that Rex had eaten her book with her homework attached. What really sticks out in my memory is what a wonderful babysitter he was, he lived for our two children. Rex could only relax when he knew where each of them were and that they were safe. He went nuts at pool time, he was our lifeguard on duty and he took his duties so seriously, he went into the pool and corralled the children to make sure no one drowned. Rex was amazing, he looked intimidating but there was no gentler giant than he, I miss him so very much.
