Cesar spent his last days at Shefaro surrounded by friends and his Barnyard Buddies. He lived long enough to see another set of his great grand nieces and nephews come into this world. (Vida x Darnilo born April 12, 2002). Cesar waited ten days past his twelfth birthday to pass on until after the new pups were born, so as to fill the void that his absence would bring to me. He was a great dog with a great heart and I miss him terribly. An era has ended at Shefaro with Cesar's passing.
