R.I.P. 2/11/2010

Roland made his final trip to the vet on Thurs morning. He had lost 6 lbs in the last 2 months and his shoulder and hip bones were sticking out. He could barely stand and was limping on both a front foot and a rear foot due to the onycodystrophy. His fecal incontinence was almost daily and his limited mobility made it worse. While it's always sad to lose such a special dog, he had put up with so much for so long.

Rest in Peace:
DC Gerico's Wild Goose Chase SC, FDCh, NA, OAJ, etc (AKA "Roland")
3/9/1998 - 2/11/2010

We hope that his struggles with mega-esophagus help other dogs and their families deal with this devastating disease. He lived 2 years and 2 months from the first symptom and never had pneumonia, so we must have been doing something right or were incredibly lucky. If you are new to this blog, please read from the beginning.
