Arrival Story:
In March 1996 my family and I decided that we should get another american eskimo since our first one Loukis had died one year before. We found him in the yellow pages and my parents chose him among his 4 brothers and sisters. They brought him home and i immediately fell in love with him. He was two months old at the time...

Milou, unfortunatlly, is no longer with us. He died on 7-19-2006 because of heart failure. He fought for one whole year. He even had to eat untasty food with no salt in it...and so many medicines...We were taking him to the vet once a week! He was ten and a lalf. Wanted so bad to live a bit more... Summer was yet to come... Left me measurable ever after...

Easter 2006...

After his first serious crisis, our lives changed a lot. Milou was getting all of our attention every single minute of every day and night. We were giving him his medicines, counting his breaths, giving him oxygen to help him breath easier, bringing him to the vet or call him and appreciate every moment. It was so bitter to know that this precious angel will be gone soon. So many times i was telling him how much i loved him and that i would love him forever, and be with him where he is going to be.... And he was kissing me...
Somedays were better! Milou was so strong! He was barking, and had the strenght to even go for long walks. And we were all so happy on those days! So happy! And when the vet had the good news, that the fluis was less, and the drugs were not harming his kidneys, those were party days!!!
And then, it was Easter 2006, he had the most serious crisis. We were sitting in the living room and it was late at night. He started coughing again and his breathing was becoming faster and faster. We counted more than 100 breaths in a minute. We gave him lassix through his vains, but wasn't getting better. We gave nitroglycerin...but he needed hospital. That was when i think i paniced seriously. The thought that i maybe was to loose him was unbearable.
We went to the hospital. They started him lassix and other medicines immediatelly. I asked if he was going to die. They said he would be ok. Vets were my Gods!!! We stayed with him all night because he would be too stressed alone in the clinic and we took him to the car. The vet was coming out to exam him every two hours. He wouldn't ever pee in the clinic so i was walking him.
In the morning he was better and we kept on his treatment home. The video of Milou's treatment aftr a crisis is from those be continued.....

On February the first...the most awful day, until then ofcourse.
My mother called me in the middle of the night, Milou wasn't well. I rushed as fast as the wind at my parents home and Milou wellcomed me with the familiar hugs and kisses and then starting coughing. He was breathing too fast. 100 breaths a minute. And then he almost fainted. It was time to call the vet. He said "quickly, give him a shot of lasix and stick on him a pad of nitroglycerin. We had them all ready. I had to give him the shot. I was afraid and in panic, but...i did it. Then we were waiting , hoping, praying... After sometime Milou was better. Tired, sleeping, but his breathing was slower and he wasn't coughing. The fluid in his lungs was getting less... the other day we went to the vet and he told us things were starting to get worse.
It was his first crisis...the one that made me realise that i was to lose my angel soon... But i wasn't to give up the battle, neither Milou. It was a hard, unequal 6 months war we be continued....


The "quite" last winter

After the summer vacation and until February 2006 the situation was pretty much the same. We went to the vet every week, sometimes even more often, to exam his blood, lungs and heart. He was not going to be any better... The vet was changing his treatment doses a lot, adjusting to Milou's exact situation. Ups and downs. Sometimes he had more fluid in his lungs and we needed to increase diuretics and then he had problems with his kiddneys and we needed to dicrease diuretcs. He took seven different kinds of drugs, others twice and others three times a day, but not all together... So we had to give him drugs somedays for ten times with ice cream. And that was the only treat he was allowed to have, so he was looking forward for his treatment... His diet was still so untasty. Only unsalted, boiled chicken, K/d and H/d. He didn't like that food but, he agreed to eat it. He was allowed to go only for short walks, because of his heart condition. Sometimes he wanted so much to go for a longer walk, but he shouln't get tired so he was just accepting reality. That was Milou's and our life until February 2006, be continued.....
