Yesterday Arda got up to feed the dogs and Nicky was following her as always. Then down he went all of the sudden

He couldn't get up, his legs were paralyzed. So off to a emergency vet run, they said it was a bad case of wobblers .

Three legs were paralyzed not much they could do. So Arda had to make the call on what to do for Nicky. A choice none of us like to do.

But it was the best choice to say goodbye and let him go to the rainbow bridge until we meet again.

This came as a shock to us and we are having a hard time with this Tears are running down my face as I try to write this

Run Free My Nicky Boy!!! :Rose:  :Broken Heart:  :doberman:


Sorry my pictures are always sideways

Oh, I'm so sorry to hear that!  I know Nicky is one who has been with you for a very long time.  I know it doesn't necessarily help to ease the pain, but I hope you will take some comfort in knowing what a good and loving home you gave him for all these years.  Run free at the Bridge, Nicky.  So many of your SCD friends will be waiting to greet you. :Rose:

We got Nickie in here days before Xmas.  Therefore the name change from Diablo to Nickie.  Nickie fit him much better.  Born on July 17, 2012..  So he was 9 1/2 years old.  Came in with a broken leg from owner trying to teach him to go up and down stairs.  He never got that.  Vet in Detroit had set it but the pin in the leg would not allow him to walk right so our vet spent tons of time xraying and repining the leg.  It was a good fix and he never showed lameness.  Could outrun most of these Heathens.  But he never fully recovered the treatment he had had before he came here.  All you had to do is touch him and he would wet all over the place.  It took a couple of years before we could let him out of his crate without wetting.  A very sweet boy.  Always willing to please and just sit by me.  Got along with everyone, boys and girls.  He was a real a sweet heart and is deeply missed by all of us. This was so unexpected.  My heart is truly broken.

It really hurts.  I just didn't expect this at all.  I'm sick about it.
