Thank you Carol, Christine and Lisa. It's taken me a while to come back and post as a lot has happened before and after his loss. I'm well again, and wanted to thank all of you
for your support while I was a mod, and after.
Schnitzel was a tough little dog who thought he was a Doberman in disguise. Some days it was hard work keeping him alive, but I'm not sorry that I did it.
Since Schnitzel was first diagnosed with IVDD, my vet has come full circle and heard about Handicapped Pets through the U. of Georgia where he attended vet school. He first told me that I'd bring Schnitzel back within a week to have him PTS. Thankfully, I found HPets and all of you. MY!! How times have changed in the last 8 years. We owe it to all of you mods and to Mark Robinson for his persistence at giving people another choice. Thanks Mark! You made a difference in my life, and that of Schnitzel's life. He had 8 more years of a good life.
I'm looking in my computer files for my fave photo of him....meanwhile, if you have a Flickr account, you could view the photo here: http://www.flickr.com/photos/38776274@N ... 995243180/
