Are you sure he does not have some Jackrabbit in his family tree. ;)

But he sure is a handsome boy

I think he was about 4-5 months old there. Thanks for all the compliments. We were best buddies! He recently passed away from complications of HCM. I loved him with every fiber of my being.

He was 6 years and 6 weeks. Had a full physical just 6 months ago and was stamped with a clean bill of health. He used to ALWAYS jump up at my shoulders, push off, hit the floor and rattle his tail. That's how he got my attention (and he always wanted my attention). I came in from mowing the yard and was standing in the kitchen and he jumped and hit me sideways at my waist (like how pro football players do). I was like "Servo, what was that?" I immediately noticed a limp in his right leg. I thought he injured his surgery knee (luxated patella operation 5 years ago). 10 days, 3,500 dollars later in vet bills (not that the money even mattered), and I had to have him euthanized. Sad thing is that we finally got him to a specialist hospital in Charleston, SC and they got him well enough for us to bring him back home and get him on a medical regimen. That same night I stayed up very late researching any way possible to improve his prognosis. When I came downstairs to go to bed I heard a "thump" like he fell of the couch where he was sleeping. I went over to check him and he was dragging himself to me with both legs paralyzed. I picked him up and he lost his bladder on me. I immediately raced him to a 24 hr emergency clinic for euthanasia since the specialist warned me that if that were to occur it could be extremely painful for him, and that a large saddle clot would mean the battle was lost. That moment of seeing him drag himself toward me with a look of confusion was the worst moment of my life. And yes, I am crying as I type this. I completely loved and adored him.
