    Sorry, just a personal thread.

    Today, 1997 Schonheits Risen Star (call name Star) was born in Camas Valley OR. He was shipped to me in Ventura County California and immediately became a beloved family member and best friend. 3 years later on January 1st he was diagnosed with Lymphoma and he fought a Warriors battle with his Oncologist as his Field Marshal. Star left us at age 6. I miss him more each day but his birthday is always a special day of remembrance!

    Thanks all!

    I'm sorry to hear that Kia has this nasty disease. We did everything to try and save him and to keep his quality of life good. The Oncologist did everything, Chemo, radiation, diet, vitamins etc. We kept him alive for an additional 3 years and yes it was pretty expensive. We spent in excess of $20k. It was worth every penny. He was acting fine and had energy and wanted to play right up to the last night. The night he crashed was heartbreaking.

    My prayers go out to you and Kia.
