Welcome to Chewbacca's Rainbow Bridge Memorial Residency
Memories of Chewbacca
We got Chewbacca(Chewie) in 2005 after our dalmatian Freckles passed as a companion for our other dog Angel. Chewie wasn't the original dog I had picked. I had had a female picked out but he had other plans. As I was looking at the other dog, he decided he was absolutely coming home with us and decided to climb into my lap and stay there. Needless to say, I ended up with a male German Shepherd/Black lab mix instead of a female one. Angel actually took to him at once and they were best friends until the day that she passed to the bridge. On March 7, 2015. Chewie woke up and when he tried to go outside, he could not get his back legs to work and when he would try to get up, he would cry out. We took him to the vet and they figured out something was pressing on his spinal column causing paralysis. The vet said they could try operating but at his age, recovery would prob not be pleasant as well as the actual surgery and other tests that would have to be performed. He would also have to be sent to a different vet hospital. After discussing options with the vet, we decided the best thing for him would be to put him down. I am sure he has met back up with his sister Angel and all of our other furbabies that have gone before him and they have welcomed him home.|
