Yaeger became suddenly paralyzed on 4-23-10.
We brought him to our vet who indicated she wasn't sure but all signs pointed to Fibrocartilaginous embolic myelopathy or an FCE.
Because of his size and the humiliation he suffered about the subsequent potty accidents (we didn't care, but he sure did!), combined with the inability to keep him crated (he had some spondylosis in his back which was ongoing/progressive) the decision was made to end his suffering and our vet thought that was the most reasonable course of action.
He will always hold a special place in all our hearts, and especially Ashley, whom he "belonged to" over the past 5-6 years.
Rest in Peace, Yaeger. You earned it.
