Chief is now 10 years old. He's got Rottie, Husky, Doberman and St. Bernard DNA. Smart and a gentle soul. He's gone from walking 2-3 miles every morning on the trail to barely being able to stand up in less than 3 months. He's lost close to 20 pounds during that time an we fear he's cancer ridden and his back legs just aren't working anymore. All he wants to do is lay around and sleep. We'll know something in the next week or so. 


We said goodbye to Chief today. He developed bone cancer at the site where his femur was snapped at the age of 1 when he was run over by a truck. The surgery to repair the leg was extensive, but you'd never know it as he grew up. We were always worried about how bad the arthritis might get, but that would have been welcome news besides what we did get. Once it began, it didn't take long and we didn't want the pain to rule his life.

He was a great dog, gentle soul and his unconditional love was for everyone. He will be missed.
