We had to put our 11 1/2 yr old Doxie down yesterday, broke our heart, but, it was the best thing to do for him. His name was Chester, GREAT DOG, the best dog we've ever had. In his prime, he was 20lbs, and built like a tank. Now, we're looking for another one, just like him. So, if you know of any large Doxie's black and tan, please get in touch with me. We have a big quiet, empty place in our house, and back yard now. We really miss that guy. thanks.
