There is no other way to put it, we did everything we could to provide the best care possible for Christian.  He was a big sweet baby, a Hanovarian, with a previously successful career. When he arrived he seemed in good health, but we could see quickly that he severe health issues. He was unsteady on his feet and had neurological problems.  He was soon diagnosed with a tumor on his spine.  We immediately started him on medication which helped but did not cure his illness.  He was far too young to go at only 15 years old. 

Finally his legs gave out on him and we could no longer keep him on his feet.  We thank everyone who tried to save him that day.  We had a group of volunteers who worked for hours to try and get him back on his feet...but to no avail.  We miss you Christian!  May you rest in peace our sweet boy.
