Max We'll Miss You

Sorry I haven't posted lately, been a little sad around here. We had to put our beloved pup down on Saturday. He'd been fighting something no vet between here and Washington could figure out. He'd had blood tests, been on many pills and special foods. He wasn't eating, then he would eat, then wouldn't eat, then lately I don't think he could eat. The vets all think maybe it was an auto immune deficiency because he was the runt of the litter. Being a rescue dog, we don't know anytihng of his history so it's all just a big guess.

As if that wasn't bad enough, in June he woke up with a limp and even after many x-rays showing nothing broken and a cast for two months, he still limps. No life for a dog who loved to run, mess around and follow his people everywhere they went.

It's so hard to loose a pet. The boys are recovering, but I think it'll be a while before they don't hurt.

As the mom of a German Shepherd, I'm really really sad for you all. He was a beautiful dog.
