Dear Mendel,

Thank you for being a part of our family. You may have only been with us a short time, but you brought us so much joy. I know Dad loved spending time with you, and the kids adored you. It was a hard decision to let you go, but after spending the last few days watching you have seizures and be unable to walk, it didn't seem fair to let you go on. I know you're in a better place, and I know I will see you again.

Love, mommy

oh no! Honey I'm so sorry. What the hell happened? How does something like that come out of the blue, and if its a parasite or virus how did it not affect the other animals?
I'm sorry. I know that is not what you needed right now.

They think it may have been a genetic disorder, something he had all along. It would explain his lethargy and failure to thrive.
