On Nov 10th, 2006 I would not know that this would be one of the worse weekends of our lives. Riley started limping Fri. night. and would not come up on the couch by Mom.
Sat Morning she was worse so we took her to the Vet and they did Xrays and determined she pulled a muscle because all looked Ok on the Xrays. They gave her muscle relaxers and we went home.
Sat. night she got worse and could not stand up on her back legs. So Sunday morning we took her to the emergency Vet who then sent up to a Specialist because she was "Bad".
They did a Mylogram and decided she did not need surgery but would keep her over night. By Monday morning she was totally paralysed in her back end and an MRI showed that a disc had ruptured and ........we needed to make a decission. She was in so much pain and would never ever get better. She was only 4 and the love of our lives. Never sick a day in 4 years. They say it was like and Anuresym in her spine. Shadows keeps looking for her to come home and so do we. All I know is that we gave her the best 4 years of her life and will always love her. :(

Oh Riley....I never knew the details. It reminds me of my herniated disc...the doctor visits...the myleogram and you guys were right there with me when I was going through this. You have a very special place in my heart right now. Love you Riley
