|We had to let go
our beloved Kaya. Born on March 9, 2004 and crossed the bridge on July
16, 2008. So very young and so unexpected. Since some time she had
trouble in swallowing kibbles and other food and after consulting our
vet we adapted her diet to a more smooth texture. Unfortunately she
started to have respiration problems too. It is known in Chow Chows and
Bulldogs that they can suffer on aspiration problems and making really
noise. That is then caused by soft tissue in the throat. After
consulting our own vet we went to a specialist for making a scope. There
was lots of morbid tissue in her larynx. It was so serious that a
surgery hardly would help her out. We had to give her up for her sake to
avoid further suffering and getting choked unexpected....
That would have been a horrible thing.
Miss Kaya only 4 years old....
She will never be forgotten.
Her Life Story, in Dutch, can be found here (PDF file): Kaya's Life Story
This page simply gives a review of some special moments and milestones.
From many friends from all over the world encouraging messages were received.
And as a special tribute it became known that Kaya would be the Chow Celebrity for the month June 2009 on the NetChows.com calendar.
