Little Elroy came to us with serious health issues, and some really couldnt be treated. We knew he had a collapsing trachea (very common in small dogs) but he stayed comfortable and very happy for 7 months before breathing suddenly became very difficult. Given his advanced age and other frailties, we knew this wasnt something we could fix. His ODH mom has so enjoyed his company, his personality and his cute ways; shes happy to have had this much time with him. Elroy passed away April 5, 2014.
