Default Grimm

Three years ago, a little Shih Tzu mix (then named Moses) was surrendered to the clinic I work at. We'd been doing outpatient parvo treatments, but he'd taken a turn for the worse and his owners couldn't afford treatment. We treated him in hospital and, slowly, he began to recover. The lad saw a picture and, always a fan of Shih Tzu type dogs..particularly wee little pups..began the lobbying to have him join our home. I'd wanted a smooth Chow, so held out. But, finally he won me over. Since he was supposed to be a Chow, Grimm got to be an honorary one, and got in on the Story name theme usually reserved for his larger housemates.

Since he was to be segregated at home until a few weeks past his last meds, he spent about a week just hanging out at home. He was an active little pup, always smiling and in good spirits. In fact, I don't think he had more than mere minutes of being anything but jolly in all his time with us.

We eventually got our smooth Chow, and they became best friends. At first he frequently won the hippo battles, but as she grew, Goose was soon able to just tank through him. While at first disappointed, Grimmy soon accepted it..particularly since they still had an understanding. And even when flattened under the hippo puppy, Grimm would smile.

We joked that he'd be the 18 yr old dog sleeping on Clive's bed, as he was our healthiest dog..never so much as an off day.

Even at his sickest, the evening he passed, he managed a tail wag before he headed in to his crate, which is where I found him, sleeping, the next morning.

While grateful we didn't have to make a decision, three years wasn't long enough.

Rest well, Muppet
