G-DIETERS CHANCE ENCOUNTER
X G-DIETERS GABRIELLE (GIGI)
On July 18,
2009 my wonderful unforgettable Mojo (G-Dieters Miracle By Chance) was
laid down to rest and will never again feel any pain.
few years ago he had cancer in his one back toe. It was removed
and the cancer never came back again.
For the past
year or so we have been fighting arthritis which was all through
him. He had a few bad episodes and Rimadyl got him through
them. The last episode started with him crying out in pain each
time he tried to get up. We put him back on Rimadyl and also
tried Tramadol without success. He also had an infection in his urine
which probably came from his prostate which we treated with Baytril.
I then took him back to Dr. Langenbach in Vienna, VA.
She was the Vet who did his knee surgeries. I thought maybe she
could do more for him, all along thinking that I was going to have to
put him down. She gave me some hope by putting him on Prednisone
for the arthritis in his back and Gabapentin for the impingement we saw
in his spine. Unfortunately, the infection in his urine came back
as my regular Vet feared it would. He went back on the Baytril
and I spent 5 days wetting him down to keep his fever under
control. He would not eat and I could barely get him to get up to
go outside. I fed him chicken and rice by hand as he laid flat on
his side. I thought this was it and my Vet said she didn’t know
what else to do for him but the 5th day his fever finally
broke. He got up and started eating and going out without being
coaxed. He actually picked up a toy and started playing one
day. I thought he was going to be ok.
About a week
later, he started hurting again and stopped eating. That was this
past week. I knew I was being selfish by keeping him alive but I
just could not say good-bye to him. This magnificent big solid
strong animal had become a bag of bones and so frail. He was on
Baytril for 3 weeks and as soon as we took him off of it, the fever and
infection came back. If we took him off the Prednisone, he would
be in severe pain. It was time. My baby is no longer in
pain. Bye-bye Mojo. I will never forget you.
