Pet loss and grieving
A loved one is
never truly gone until they are forgotten,
...to live in the hearts of those left behind is to live forever!
IN LOVING MEMORY
12/04/06 – 08/03/11
My sweet Pilot. Not even five years old. Six weeks from breaking off two
rear toenails to being euthanized. Now I understand why he had that pendulum
swing to his hind end, why he stopped climbing stairs because his back legs
would give out on him and he'd slide back down, why he scraped his back feet
when walking and rarely would run faster than a trot. My handsome, extremely
tall, 187-pound gentle ambassador of the breed - with a paralyzed hind end.
Surgery was not possible due to his arrhythmia.
His vet was very gentle and Pilot died at home, in my arms. He is buried
beside his sister Elvira, who died two years ago from bloat at almost 10
years old. Pilot's other sister, Sassy, is 9, and his brother, Diesel, is
Pie was truly special, a perfect example of what a Dane personality and
demeanor should be. A classy gentleman. It is so painful to lose them. Sleep
well my boy.
I’ll never forget you. Mom
