Smile Diablos first birthday

This weekend will be Diablos first birthday. I took him from a breeder at 3 1/2 months old, 37 pounds. He was about to be put to sleep on Monday. I took him home on Friday night. He had a seizure when I brought him home. The next morning I brought to my vet. He diagnosed Distemper, he hadn't had any of his shots. The vet let me know he might not live 2 weeks, I shouldn't get my hopes up. I told him I would take my chances and to do whatever he needed to do to give him a chance. He made it through the distemper and I had to put him on several medications to stop the seizures. He is now 83 pounds, and seizure free for over 6 months. Glad I didn't give up on him, he's quite the mamas boy. My vet has been very happy with his growth and we are weening off his meds slowly.
