I don’t know if anyone at all out there in dog blog land remembers me and Kasha the Dainty Dane but thought I should post to officially close her blog. I know I haven’t posted in quite a while there pretty much wasn’t anything all that exciting to post when you have an ill dog. Ms. Kasha was put to sleep on 12/16/13 only a few weeks away from her 12th Birthday. For those of you that know our great danes, she had a very long wonderful life. We miss her dearly. Ms. Kasha was diagnosed with degenerative myelopathy (a disease that affects german shepherds quite a bit). Great Danes don’t usually live that long to get it. Basically her rear end was no longer communicating with her brain and she became incontinent (which we managed for well over a year), her paws would flip over, she would fall down, have trouble getting up, etc. She finally got to the point where her back legs were totally lame and couldn’t stand up at all so the decision had to be made. Run free sweet Kasha! You were the best dog ever!
