Sadly, Paso has gone to the Rainbow Bridge


Dear Dorothy 

This letter is to inform you and the NGA supporters of the passing of Paso. I as well as Edgar (and our neighbor’s 5 cats) were very grateful for the short time given to us to allow Paso into our lives and to allow him to enjoy his short life outside the kennel. 

I want you and all the friends of NGA (especially the ones who contributed towards his medical expenses) to know that his passing was NOT in any way related to his cancer. He was making remarkably good progress from kidney issues until complications from a recently received vaccine set in. 

A few final observations about Paso that stand out in his short life with us: 

Upon coming home Paso discovered what a squeaky toy was and loved to constantly play with it. The way he responded to the squeaker and chewed it to make it squeak was great, while the absolute look of disinterest on Edgar’s face was a pretty comical thing to see. 

During Paso’s treatment at home, Edgar took it upon himself to make sure I knew if Paso needed attention by barking and standing over him. 

In conclusion I would like to thank the following people for their great help, dedication and devotion to their profession in veterinary medicine: 

Ohio State University – Dr. Guillermo Couto 

Smith Ridge Veterinary Centre – Drs. Martin Goodstein & Jacqueline Ruskin 

Holistic Centre for Veterinary Medicine – Dr. Cynthia Lankeneau 

And finally to Dorothy and all the volunteers and supporters at NGA for giving Paso a second chance and six months of life he never would have had without your help.
