Checkers Goodbye

Interesting optical illusion

Last post: On 7/15/2011 I suffered several seizures and I have been unable to get on my feet for more than a few minutes a day. I have cancer according to the vet, and even if treated through operations I might get another couple of months here at most. I am still fighting, but it is a matter of time. So I say goodbye to my friends now, and my humans hug me everyday. Even though I wake up each day for a few minutes, eat and drink, I know the end is near. Dad says I am still his puppy.

Checkers was born November 17, 1997. ( Am. Can. Ch. Fox Lane's Grand Master) 
 Checkers was adopted by Glenn and JoAnne Short and their children.  He became Hobo's adopted brother. 
Checkers recieved his American Championship the day he turned 9 months, and his Canadian Championship at 23 months (after a long lay off from showing). That photo is at this page bottom

We hope you enjoyed seeing his pictures as he grew up.
