A boy and his dog

Ride home after a long day at the beach. Luke and Sparkle take a nap.


It's been a sad, sad week here...

As the 2nd anniversary of losing Jade approached, I had no idea I would be losing my Chyna girl too. It's too painful to post the whole story, but last Sunday she just wasn't herself. I took her to the ER vet and had every test run (blood, urine, x-rays) and all the tests came back normal except for possible hip dysplasia.

By the next day she was still lethargic and Paul took her x-rays to her regular vet and he thought possibly a disc problem causing pain. We made an appointment with a neurologist in Los Angeles for the next day.

Tuesday Paul woke me up at 6:30am and Chyna was in obvious distress so we rushed her back to the ER vet and they stablilized her until my vet arrived at his hospital. He consulted with the neuro down the hill and we rushed her there. She went into cardiac arrest before they could sedate her for an MRI and other tests.

Wednesday morning I had to make the difficult decision to let her go. She wasn't coming out of it and I couldn't let her suffer.

RIP Chyna Jade 4/8/2007-6/24/2009
I miss you so much.
