| In addition to all his other medical problems, it was discovered in Oct. 2002 that Butch had high blood pressure. He took medication for that and was monitored regularly, he had been going to the vet every week to ten days to have his blood pressure measured.|
Butch then exhibited excessive thirst and urination. He had undergone many tests, and it was determined that Butch had diabetes insipidus. Butch was a victim of poor health for who knows what reason. His illnesses started way before he started to get 'old'. In June of 2006 it was discovered that Butch had a tumor near his heart. He was not in any pain, but he would cough from time to time so he was on medication for that.
Much appreciation to Cecil and Lou Boggs who continued to help support Butch via our sponsor progam.
On November 4th, 2006, just hours after we lost Lady, we had to send Butch to join her, to a place where he can be comfortable forever more. Butch has taken a large part of our heart with him, we know it will be kept safe in his protection. A very special thanks to Doctor Bauman for being there when Butch needed him the most.
Goodbye our sweet, sweet, happy, gentle boy.
