    Default Condolences to Shayne on the loss of Chopper

    I just received an email telling me that Shayne has lost his boy, Chopper. I don't have any of the details other than Chopper had been undergoing numerous surgeries over the past week.

    Shayne,

    I'm so sorry to hear about the loss of Chopper. I remember the excitement you shared when you first got Chopper. (I'm not so sure the Macho Dawg showed the same excitement!) I know there is a tremendous feeling of loss right now for both you and Staci. The bond that you had with Chopper will always keep him near and dear to your heart.

    Big hugs,
    Vicky

    You really gotta be careful about how high a pedestal you put your method, your accomplishments, your dog on. There's usually someone who's done more, somewhere. And they may have used a different method than you did! Chris Atkinson 2013

    What sad news. I am so sorry for your loss. I know Chopper has left many wonderful memories behind and I hope you can take some comfort in those memories.

    Again, I am so sorry Shayne.

    I'm so sorry. Chopper and you guys all waged an epic battle. I wish the result could have been different.
