Here is a picture of my shih tzu. He died in May 2004 at the age of 13. He looks happy & healthy in this pic. I have other pics of his final days and he looks really sick. I may post those another day if anyone is interested. We had to euthanize him, he developed a heart problem & his health rapidly deteriorated. In his final days he lost interest in eating & began to have seizures/strokes. I cuped his head in my hands as he died... our eyes were locked. It's been about 7 months since he died, and I have thought of him every single day since then. I miss the little man so much!
