Many happy memories, but sad ones too. Chronic illness made Schotzi's road through life very challenging. We did everything we could for him. I loved him more than I thought a person could ever love a dog and struggled to help him. The neurological effects of the Erlichia were beyond my control and led to his demise. He, who would have died to protect me; attacked me, with no provocation last Friday. I am still recovering. Both Kurt and I were frightened of the demon that had taken over our sweet dog's body. We had to euthanize him. It was good for me to be able to replace the horror with the memory of him laying finally at peace in my arms.

This one is going to take some time to get over. MEK
