DENVER – Authorities in Colorado have found a German shepherd at her master’s side in a remote area of the Pawnee National Grassland, six weeks after the man apparently committed suicide.

The dog, “Cash,” was found next to the body of Jake Baysinger, 25, a La Salle man who had been reported missing and suicidal on June 28, according to the Denver Post.

Beauty, midnight, vision dies:
Let the winds of dawn that blow
Softly round your dreaming head
Such a day of sweetness show

Noons of dryness see you fed
By the involuntary powers,
Nights of insult let you pass
Watched by every human love.

This can be a very perplexing situation for the Boxer handler, especially when you are depending on the existing working dog community in the United States for guidance. As I look into the past, and remember working with excellent helpers that were mainly familiar with German Shepherd Dogs (GSDs), my dogs did not live up to their maximum potentials because they, the helpers, lacked the understanding of the differences in temperament between the breeds.

Plus, in many cases, they just wanted to “play it safe”, which is still a good way, especially with GSDs.

A good helper can “read” a dog, but only within the parameters of their personal experience.
