Missy I hope you saw us today. We found a wonderful home for Cosmo our little Foster Pup. I thought about you and could not hold the tears back. I know you are happy now but I miss you so much. We helped Cosmo to honor your memory and I told him that.
Wait by the bridge Missy. Wait by the bridge.

 

Missy has crossed over...

Thank you so much for your prayers.
Little Missy passed over in my arms last night (1/9/07) on our way to the Emergency Animal Hospital. I feel sure she had a heart attack. She was a fighter till the last breath and as she was going I told her we loved her and she was not an orphan, that she had a Mom and Dad and Brother & Sissy who love her as much as a little dog could be loved. She absolutely adored Fred and as he drove, she in struggling to breath tried to get to him and he reached over and put his hand on her and told her that loved her and she was his "Baby Girl". We reached the ER a split second after she took her last breath. I could feel her heart continue to beat as we rushed in the door and the Vet took her from me. They tried to revive her but her little body just could not go any more.

We brought her home and I put her collar on her (she always got excited/happy when I put it on her) and wrapped her in her favorite blankie. The ER gave her to us in a cardboard burial box and they were SO nice and sympathetic. I know they did all they could for her as did Doctor Orgeron and his wonderful staff. It was just time for her to run in green fields and breath without struggling. We told her again that we loved her and she should wait by the Rainbow Bridge for us. We buried her in the yard of the home she had for only 9 weeks. (70 days)

We will continue to grieve for her and never forget how she filled our lives with love and her gently ways. We have a few memories that bring smiles to us and those are the ones we will try to hold onto every time we think of her.

Both Fred and I have such an enormous respect for our friends and others who work in rescue. You take these little fur-babies into your heart and home and either watch them walk away with their adoptive owner or do as we did last night and say good bye over a grave. Yet they go on. I know God gives them the heart and strength to continue and He chooses these people with His own hand so that these little animals can know love even if for a short time, like our "Little Missy".

 

A very sad day.

Missy began to have labored breathing so I took her to the vet. After blood work and chest X-rays he told me the problem is not her lungs as we thought but is in fact her heart. Much more serious of a problem. He showed me the X-rays and explained the problem to me. It was all I could do to hold myself together as I listened to him saying that her time is limited here on Earth. She is now on a dieuretic and Rx food with very little salt and easy to digest. I am not a quitter but I will not let Missy suffer. She has been with us since Nov. 1 and has been a joy to us and all who have met her. She deserves the best that can be done and that is my goal for her. I will continue to take special care of her and love her as she deserves to be.

 

I'm OK

Yesterday I didn't get any steroid. I took my antibiotics and I did well. I felt pretty good and didn't have worse problems breathing. Mom is so happy and Dad gave me hugs and said "That's my baby girl". Mom said she feels like I may be getting well and she is excited for me. She says prayers work and I think so too.
Boy is she mad at Buddy and Bella. They are in trouble.

 

Here we go again.

Mom talked to the vet yesterday and he said I need to work at getting off the steroid! I tried this before and it did not go well. I had to start them again! Mom is scared but of course she will do it. Today I get NO steroid, only my antibiotic. I am still not well and so it is a step Mom is scared of. I still huff and puff when I get just a little excited or when I go outside to potty on my own. When I jump on Dad's chair or into the big bed it takes a lot out of me. Mom is saying prayers for me so that will help and then maybe I can go on to the second treatment. It's been so hard on my body.

 

Not a good day.

I am having a hard time breathing again. I am taking the new med. the doctor gave me and still taking the old one too. It is very wet outside and I think that hurts my lungs. Mom says "it's those old heart worms Baby Girl. They are dead and you need to get them out of your little lungs". It hurts to cough. I try not to move so I won't have to cough. I see Buddy and Bella playing and I want to play with them. They have so much fun and make Mom and Dad laugh so much. I wonder if I will ever be well. It's been such a long time since I felt good. Mom keeps asking me not to go over the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes I am just so tired of fighting for every breath. I'm holding on as best I can.

 

Better day today.

I am feeling better. Mom has been giving me my med. and it is helping me a lot. I can breath much better and she said she can't hear my lungs girgle anymore. I'm eating well and I even feel like moving around. I know I am not well but Mom and Dad are just not going to give up on me. I think the prayers of my family and Dogster Pals are helping me. Thanks for the puppy prayers Guys.

I didn't feel so good today. I had a coughing spell and it was hard for me to breath. Dad says it is cause it is so wet and cold. Our house is warm but he says the humidity is not good for me. I did eat today but I just wanted to sleep. Bella and Buddy played and played. Mom and Dad laughed at them but I just wanted them to stop and be quiet. I wish I felt good enough to play. I take my med every day and maybe one day I will be well.

 

I'm getting well.

Mom says I am much better. I feel better but still on steroids! Mom says that is not a good thing but she doesn't know what else to do for me. Besides that my vet says this is the best thing for me right now. Mom talked to him yesterday and he didn't make me go in and I am glad. I have been on steroids for a long time now and Mom is scared of the long term effects on my little body from it. For now I am feeling pretty good and still eating. Prayers do work so please keep saying puppy prayers for me.

I am still eating and that's good, Mom said. I still breath hard. They call it labored breathing at the vet's office. Mom is giving me meds and I am spending lots of time in Dad's big chair just resting. Mom is going to talk to the Dr tomorrow and I might have to go back to see him. It's hard for me to go out to potty. I get out of breath and just huff and puff. But I'm a good girl and don't ever potty in the house. Mom says I am a little angel in a canine body. :)
She loves me so much. She asked Santa only for me to get well. Please say a puppy prayer for me.
