Chong came to us in June of 2018 so we had him just over 6 months before he passed away at home. He was estimated to be 12 years old and was a long haired chihuahua mix that weighted 4 pounds. A friend shared a post for him needing a home so I inquired upstate to the Animal Shelter that had him. He had a guarded prognosis because of his health symptoms in the kennel. They found him to have a collapsed esophagus so they felt his life span would be short and it was, but we had quite a time with him. We took him and as soon as he got here he perked up. We had every test known to man and he is healthy for an old guy and our vet felt he had the esophagus issue his whole life. He followed me around the house and loved to be cuddled and cared for. He had no use of the other dogs though so as small as he is, if someone walks by him he would try to jump them. He made life interesting and we absolutely loved him. High quality diet and some supplements for his arthritis and this boy was as happy as a clam until the last month when he became finicky with his diet. I started to home cook for him and after a few weeks he just stopped eating. He was not uncomfortable or in pain, it was just time. He slipped away at night, snuggled in his bed with his family around him. Until we meet again, God speed handsome.
