With great sadness I had to face the sudden passing of my beloved Herbie. He was the sunshine of my life, for 10 years he fully enjoyed his life, he was always ready for action, and always happy, always on my side. But sunday march 6 one minute he enjoyed chewing a chewing-bone, and the next minute he could not stand on his legs anymore. We took him to a vet straight away, and he got some injections, and needed rest as it looked like it was coming from his neck. Unfortunately it didn't work, and in the evening we went to a specialist to find out what was wrong with him. We will never know, when he was under anaesthesia, after taking an xray, he stopped breathing by himselfe. We tried for 1 hour by stopping and starting the machine, but he did not start breathing again. It was just like he decided it himselfe, and it must be the right decision. It's very quiet now without him, Herbie was a small dog in size, but such a great personality, and the leader of my small pack, and he was very much loved and admired by many friends all over the world. He is missed but will never be forgotten.
