Sadly we lost our big black boy. After he started rapidly going down hill, we took him to the vets. There they ran multiple tests and had him on IVs for fluids. Once they had done all they could, he came home with the hopes that he had turned a corner and would start to improve. For a few days it looked like he was and then he took a turn for the worst and the decision was made to end his suffering.

We strongly believe that it was cancer that caused Codie`s rapid decline.

Rest well Codie (Multi.Group placer GCH Hausmekon`s Flag of Honor OFA Hips/Elbow, our black escape artist, no fence or crate could hold him if he did not want to be there. In fact he escaped out of a friend's yard just weeks before becoming ill. You exceeded our expectations and left an indelible mark on our breeding program. You will be greatly missed.
