Copper is a rescue. He came from a very sad and neglectful situation. His previous owner died, and the wife had no time for poor Copper. She "forgot" to feed him. When we got him, he only weighed 35 lbs. He's still heartworm positive, but is getting in shape to deal with them. He's a super dog, and loves his sister Fredrika (Fredder).

Copper lost his fight with pneumonia following his heartworm treatments. He passed away October 29, 2004 in the early morning hours. He will be missed, always.

Copper had to go to the hospital today. He has taken the pneumonia following his heartworm treatments, and things don't look very good for him. Anyone reading this, please pray for our Copper, that he gets well and comes home to his Mom, who loves him so much. Thanks so much!


I'm home from my heartworm treatments!

I came home today from being treated for those heartworms. Boy, those treatments are tough. I don't feel so good at all. All I want to do is sleep, and my tummy doesn't feel good either. My mom tries to get me to eat my treats after I take my walks, but I really don't want them. I ate them, because she asked me to, but they didn't even taste good to me. She cooked some chicken for me at suppertime, and I ate a bite or two. She seemed like she was happy I ate anything. I think she is worried about me. I am staying very close to her, because I was scared when she left me at the vet's. I don't want her to leave me again, ever. I love my mom. I think everybody was glad to see me. My human brother, Paul, came with mom to pick me up. And he did have to pick me up, literally! I couldn't even jump into the van. Usually, that is no problem for me. But when I got home, I did jump out of it. Home is GOOD, GOOD, GOOD! Fred was glad to see me, but she got all excited and wanted to play. I just didn't want to. I feel very nervous and jumpy, and I hollered when my human sister, Shelby, stepped over me. I didn't mean to scare her! She just startled me. It's been a long couple of days, sis! We have a new brother who is just a little tiny guy. His name is Frodo, and he's a chihuahua. He's a pain in my butt, too. He wanted to play, and I finally had to growl at him to make him go away. I like him okay, but today was NOT the day! I will close for now and write more when I feel better. Thanks to all who kept me in their thoughts and prayers, because those heartworms were worse than the vet thought at first. I know I will be better very soon, though, because my mom takes the very best care of me! Love, Copper
