Other known illnesses
Diagnosed at about 5 months of age. Within a month, went from localized to generalized. Treated with every known (at that time) conventional treatment, including experimental ones. Constantly battled chronic secondary bacterial and yeast infections in ears and on bottoms of feet. Vet said in the end that her immune system basically collapsed. I miss her so very much and think about her all the time. Two more dogs have joined my life since she's been gone, but none will ever take her place in my heart. I love you, bug.

In Memory of: Am&Can Winning Ways Chimo TT HIC
Year of Birth: 1992
Year of Death: 1998
Cause: Mesenteric Torsion
Age: 6
Color: Bi-Color
Sire: Toskeys Willow V Schneiderhof
Dam: Carmspac Thirdrail Marvelous
Kennel name: Winning Ways
Breeder: Linda Abernot
Other known illnesses
None,Chimo was never sick,he had above average clearances for Thyroid,TLI,,ETC.What he did have was a sire who also died of Mesenteric Torsion at age 5. Chimo was in excellent condition and had gone BOB 5 days earlier at a specialty show. On the morning he died I had him at the vets and on the operating table within half and hour of showing signs of discomfort, but nothing could be done. There is no doubt in my mind that the genetic disposition for Mesenteric Torsion is inherited.

Other known illnesses:
Yukon was my gentle giant (30" at the shoulder). I adopted him after someone found him wandering around Winnipeg, MB, who contacted CKC who in turn contacted his breeder. He had mild HD which never affected him, the only reason I knew was via x-rays taken before I adopted him. He never had any serious problems, though I had a benign tumor removed from his foot at the time of his adoption. He was the prototype for the perfect GSD temperament, severely abused by his former owner, he still retained his dignity along with a love and respect for the human race. He developed mega esophagus due to the polymyositis, which resulted in aspiration pneumonia. The combination of the muscular damage done by the polymyositis and the recurring pneumonia resulted in his ultimate death.
