Our darling Shubi, our first wire-haired dachshund, was born in Landshut, Germany. She was the light of my life and although she has been gone ten years, I still miss her very much. Here is a picture that was taken the day we brought her home from the breeders.
And here she is with Jack during her later years.
Shubi only lived 10 years, due to a terrible illness called Granulomatous meningoencephalitis (GME) which is an inflammatory disease of the central nervous system. We treated her with chemotherapy pills and prednisone, until we knew it was time to stop.
But she sure was a special dog and we enjoyed each and every day that we shared with her!
