"Rave" was proudly owned and loved by Catherine Shields - Carousel Malinois

There is no way to describe my grief - except that I'm lost with out my Rave. After fighting so hard to save her for 4 days, Rave was let go on August 10th, 2005 as there was no possible hope of a recovery and her condition continued to worsen. We are left wondering why? and what? Testing has now ruled out infection, and cancer. We are left to wonder if it was an unknown toxin.

My biggest feeling of loss is that of my friend and "heart" dog. While I love all my dogs, Rave and I had a special connection, and her absence in my life has left a profound feeling of emptiness. Late in 2004 Rave and I had started our journey in obed, her training was going so well, we were having so much fun, I will miss these times and the bright look in her eye about "hey great! what do we do next" she was an amazing dog.
