Chopstyx was our very first pei and meant the world to us. He taught us about how wonderful the breed is. He was mischievous as could be and seemed to have the knack for finding trouble, but we wouldn't have traded him for anything in the world. We never knew we would get such a great "welcome home mom and dad" greeting day after day. He was always at our heels, especially when we were outside. He loved to romp around outdoors protecting his turf from "evil". He was one of the most well mannered, intelligent, and comical dogs I have ever owned. He passed on to the Rainbow Bridge at the young age of four in due to amyloidosis. He was our "first-born" and will be truly missed.
Chopstyx will forever hold a special place in our hearts. Losing Chopstyx is what prompted me to start doing rescue work. I loved the breed and wanted to help in any way I could, and I wanted to be better educated about the terrible diseases that are prevalent amongst Shar-Pei. There isn't a day that goes by that I don't think of Chopstyx and Nikko - my first two peibies.
