It was a few months after his death that I came upon Rabies Vaccinosis. I emailed the vet who treated him for all this crazy behavior but never got a response. I let it go because it wouldn't get my dog back.
These Rabies vaccinations freak me out and they have it so well organized that the vets report to animal control who has been vaccinated or not, I do save the labels from the viles in case WD develops some problems. I don't want to steal this thread but wanted to answer some of your questions.

I'm so sorry. I know all too well the dark days you are in right now; I hope the light shines bright and strong quickly again for you. Watching your children grieve is one of the hardest parts.

no worries. If it helps to get the word out to those who dont already know its a potential issue, it works.

I sure hope so. Miss my big beastie but I pray he's free from those demons now.

What a lovely gift Riley gave you on his last day. And what a gift you gave him...freeing him from a life with no joy. I have seen people with Alzheimer's slowly lose themselves mentally, and be physically fine. They are not really there anymore...just their bodies. It is tragic. Fortunately with animals, they can be released from the bodies that house a broken mind. Sounds like Riley had a lot of years of being loved and loving. The pictures with your daughter and Riley are priceless.
Run free, bark as much as you want, and be happy...RIP Riley

As long as nobody hugs me and starts telling me how sorry they are, I don't fall apart. I can make it through without crying until one of the kids comes in and tells me how much they miss Riley.

Shasta is showing signs of confusion and she's mildly depressed. She would always run to Riley's crate when it was time to go outside for a potty break in the morning. She runs over, looks for him and remembers he's not there and then glares at me. I still haven't taken his crate down. Not ready yet. I know I should but it's not that time yet.
