Chris passed away August 1, 2008
 
This seems like a good way to get Chris' thread started!

Tomorrow is my husband's birthday and since Chris was born sometime around the end of March 1994 we decided to make his birthday the same day - Chris is a pound pup adoption so we don't know exactly when he was born - my husband and his daughter adopted him in September 1994.

:cool: :cool: :cool: :cool: So tomorrow Chris officially makes it to 14!!! :cool: :cool: :cool: :cool:

Last year on March 31 we were at the ER vet, facing the possibility of congestive heart failure. The lasix injection, even though it was modest in amount, upset his kidneys and he was turning down food and coughing... We were very worried... I didn't think he'd see Christmas. But thanks to a new cardiologist and lots of expensive medications, he made it not only to Christmas but to his birthday too! Yay!!!

Baby Chris after his PDA-correcting surgery, late 1994...

Two boys - one birthday celebration! Hope they got cakes! Chris of course has to have a 'special' one - cause he's the OLDEST! :cool:

What a lucky pup he was to have been chosen that day at the pound. Another lucky day was when YOU came into his life Natalie! He was home free and still doing well at 14! Amazing!

Happy Birthday Hugs! Jody
