Schautze Bonds, 1998-2007
We lost our little Schautze on October 12 after an almost seven-month battle with mast cell tumors. Schautze was a great patient of the NCSU Vet Teaching Hospital as she went through surgery, radiation and chemotherapy but in the end the cancer spread to her spine and her quality of life deteriorated quickly. It is impossible to do justice to her spirit with a write up as she was a special little character who was smart and talented. She was heart broken when she lost her brother Klaus in 2005 but quickly adapted to our rescues, Willie and Sugar, when they came on board.
We got her as a puppy for my best friend from high school and when she could not handle the children there, she came back to us one year later. The eight years with Schautze were filled with her antics and loving personality. She loved to sleep behind Jeanne’s head on a pillow. She could catch a frisbee and had the best eye-mouth coordination with a tennis ball, never missing.
In loving memory of sweet Schautze Bonds, a true “sweetheart.”
~Jeanne, Bob Bonds, and Willie and Sugar (adopted 2006, 2007)
