Pongo was adopted from the SPCA at 1 1/2 years of age. They had told us that he was a 5 month old Black Lab puppy! We found out later from our Vet that he was actually about a year and a half old. He had puppy soft fur and never grew any bigger, he just seemed to pickup more white hair around his muzzle. He was always energetic and happy to see you.
In January, he developed problems with balance and seemed to be unable to put one paw down from time to time. He then started having terrible siezzures that increased even with a Neurologist doing workups and a constantly changing cocktale of meds. After almost 5 months of trying everything we could, we made the hard decission to let him go quietly.
His family will greatly miss him. Pongo loved going outside, playing fetch in the house and eating treats. He was an escape artist as a young puppy and loved jumping in the water.
Pongo will be forever missed by Carrie & Tori.
