Goodbye Little Dog

18 Sep 2016 by admin, 3 Comments »

This has been a rough week.  Our sweet and curious puppy is gone.  In spite of intensive veterinary care, he succumbed to parvovirus a few days after joining our family.  This horrible virus must have been lurking inside him and the stress of a new home, recent neutering, load of fleas and parasites caused it to take over his little body.  When he stopped eating shortly after joining us,  the veterinarian thought it was only a reaction to the worming meds he was given right before coming home with us.  Puppy was given fluids, anti-nausea meds and antibiotics.   He did not improve and within a day it was apparent that he was ill with parvo.  He was given intensive care in hopes of seeing him through the worst of this horrible disease.  We had such high hopes that he would pull through and live a long and happy life as our beloved dog.  It was not to be.  Rest in peace, Little Dog.  You were very loved.

    I’m so sorry about your puppy! I went hunting for a pumpkin hat pattern for a friend’s impending grandchild (due 10/6) and found your site. The hat is cute, but I am really so sad about your little dog. So tough to lose an animal, especially a young one.

    I too came in search of your pumpkin hat, but found the terribly tragic story of your puppy. I am so very sorry. Know that he is at peace over the Rainbow Bridge playing with all the other puppies in a beautiful sunny field. My sister lost her beloved Golden Retriever named Hunter three years ago on Sept 16 and we all are still missing him terribly.
