Chop has been with our family about a year now..he also is loved by his other humans, loree and howee...chop had been living under a car alone for sometime,. so it took a while for him to get his tail wagging and know what love and family is all about!
Hes an older gentleman, so my other 3 have to wait for him on walks..but they do! He sometimes has trouble getting up on colder mornings..but he always does! He is a truly loving and loved sweetheart, and we are blessed to have him!
UPDATE: july 21st, thursday
chop couldnt get up for the last 2 days. He peed on himself where he was lying on his doggie bed in the livingroom. We knew he was getting weaker, cuz he was collapsing on walks a couple of times. His back legs are paralyzed now, the vet thinks it was cuz of a degenerative disc disease. He growls now when you touch him, and he bit howie accidentally when he was petting him. Poor dear Chopper.
So today loree and howie and i took him on a stretcher, with a muzzle on, over to the Los Feliz Small Animal Clinic. Our appointment was at 5:20. We lifted him up into the back of my son's pickup. Howie rode in back with him. Howie said later that chopp put his head up to smell the air, and grew so happy when we drove over the river where he used to go on walks. And where he fell in twice!
The vet was so sweet. She shaved his back leg, put in the needle, and in less than a minute Chopp had left this tired old body, and flew free. We all cried, and kissed him goodbye.
I got home and walked my 3 other dogs, and cleaned up his doggie bed area. They are going to send Loree his ashes and we can divide them up. I will scatter some up in the park where he used to walk with the other dogs.
He was happy with us. And now he is free. And we will miss him. Rest peacefully, my dear old boy.
i am an old happy guy..reborn into joy
