The Latest on Choya - April 26

It's been a while since I last posted an update on Choya. He has gone for about 4 more acupunture treatments since March 31. After each treatment he regained some, but not all of his energy. He was going up and down the stairs as if he never had a problem in the first place. We decided to have him treated every 3 weeks instead of every 2 weeks. It has been about 10 days since his last one and he has started to go down hill.

He tried going up the stairs last night, got about 3/4 the way up, lost his footing and started sliding backwards down the stairs. I was standing behind him at the time and stopped him. It was very sad to see him going back to the way he was 2 months ago.

Thank You for Visting Choya’s Den

Choya, thank you for the timeless journey we took together and the many memories. Until we meet again my friend.

In October 2005 at the age of 6, Choya was trained and certified as a service dog for Peter. Choya retired in December 2008 and he passed the leash to Kiche to become Peter’s new service dog.

Choya became ill in February 2009 and in July after a heroic battle with his illness, he passed on to the Rainbow Bridge. Choya will be greatly missed by Peter and by the many who knew him.
