Hello dogster world! My name is Jack! I just moved in with a nice little family today and boy am I overwhelmed! I am little unsure of my surroundings, my previous family left me behind when they moved away :-(. My new family seems nice, and I have even got to play with Angel already! She was so nice...reminded me of my mommy! She gave me kisses, let me run all over her...it was so nice to see another dog! There's a weird thing indoors that makes a weird "meowing" noise though, and it likes to pounce...kind of scared me at first but it did lick me. I was a little afraid when my new mommy left to go to work, but she made sure I was able to see the meowing thing (I can't spend much time with momma Angel until I go see the vet). I cried some...mommy said I would cry a little bit, but it's okay.

Mommy says I have Parvo virus and have to stay with the nice Doctor for a few days. I am not sure about Parvo is, I just know I haven't been feeling good at all. Mommy was scared when I started being too weak to even walk, and I have been throwing up everything including water. I know mommy is going to do what's best for me...I just want to go home with her, Angel, and Tia.

Well today I am feeling a little bit better. Doc decreased my fluids because my levels were stable...blood pressure, blood sugar, etc. I am still having some diarrhea but haven't been throwing up anymore. I am still not eating on my own, but Doc is hoping that I will start showing interest soon. I stink really bad, but the nice nurse said that's normal for a dog undergoing Parvo treatment, and I know mommy is just happy to visit me anyway.

Although it has gotten easier to accept Jack's untimely death, I still want to cry when thinking too much about it. Recently, Tia and Angel had been acting out their own depression by not eating so I had been more concerned about them than myself. I gained over 10lbs since Jackie died! Thinking of what he would have looked like when he got older, how he would have loved this or that, how I wish I could have done more. Honestly, I do know that I did everything I could for Jack...exhausting ALL resources until there was nothing left to give. I still think it wasn't fair...that he shouldn't have had to die like that. I sometimes wonder if I made the right decision by keeping him in the ICU like that, or if I should have let him go sooner. Sometimes I feel guilty for dragging out the process. If he'd gotten started on his puppy shots right off the bat there's a possibility this could have been avoided, ya know? His former owners didn't take responsibility, and it's unrealistic to think I should have done something before when I didn't know Jack needed me...or else I would have found him a lot sooner than I did. I believe I found him for a reason...he needed someone to take responsibility of him and that's what I did. But still, it feels like more should have/could have been done...I just don't know what. It breaks my heart knowing of the pain & suffering little Jack endured thanks to the parvo. It makes me sick knowing his former owners got away with abandoning a puppy, and not knowing how the other two dogs are/were being treated. If I could have saved them, I would have. As it was, the owners did take them along. Jack's situation was unfortunate to the end, with the exception that myself, Angel, and Tia were there to show him the love he needed all along. It is somewhat comforting to know that he had a soft bed to sleep on, blankets to cuddle under, food to eat and water to drink until the day he died.

This isn't necessarily about Jack...or another dog. My best friend's baby unexpectedly passed away yesterday afternoon. My friend's wife was in a tremendous amount of pain & hadn't felt the baby kick for a day so she went into the hospital. They had to do an emergency c-section and the baby was stillborn. The placenta had detached from the baby, cutting off his blood-flow. Alex was to be born on January 29th, 2013 and has an older brother named Toby.
