Slick was a sweetheart. A funny guy with a baby face who was constantly begging for treats. He loved people and loved hanging out with "his girls". He could open almost any gate and kept us on our toes. He was also terrified of plastic - so we tied plastic bags on his stall door pins so he wouldn't let himself out.
He loved people and loved getting attention from all our volunteers. He had a keen understanding of pockets (where the treats are) and would happily body search you for anything to eat.
He had ringbone and it was painful for him to walk, so we arranged surgery to give him a better quality of life. The surgery went fine but he had a number of post-op issues and it just seemed like he couldn't get a break. One thing after another came up and the issues were all unexpected and very rare - from blood clots to nerve damage. We tried absolutely everything possible but he still ended up with rotation in 3 feet that was impossible to come back from.
I will miss his sweet face. He was loved more than you can imagine and will be missed every single day.
Bless his heart. He's not hurting anymore. April 1, 2021.
