To be loved on
To be startled
He is discovering everything
Eukanuba Puppy Petite
In the wood on our property
Ducky was born with hydrocephalus. He was taken away from his mom too young and is not socialized. He two brothers are very healthy and were adopted by great families. Ducky was to last one to be born in a litter of 3 boys. His birth was difficult as he showed his hiney first and was stuck inside his mother's womb.
Ducky couldn't lick, eat on his own, walk without limping. He was very weak and had not been socialized. We had to feed him with a syringe. He is learning something new every day. He eats and drinks on his own and went from 2.8 pounds to 3.2 pounds in a couple of weeks. He loves to be loved on and comes to us to be cuddled. He had his first grooming a week ago and did well. Everything scares him and he pitches a screaming fit when he is terrified. Regardless, we love him and he has a home with us.
Every day I learn something new!

Recently, mom noticed that my back was severely arched and I was not recognizing my siblings anymore. I was sleeping even more than I used to and it was tedious to wake me up. I gave mom a scare several times lately because, even if she would rub my back to wake me up, I just would not.
I started to have pustules coming out on my skin and it would burst and look like burn marks. The past 2 days, my anger came back with a vengeance. Anger and hydrocephalus go together as it is a symptom of the condition. I was also spinning in one direction more than ever.
All the symptoms that got milder during the time I was rescued, came back at an accute level. I started to scream when I was angry and bite (other signs of hydrocephalus), so mom talked with my husis and they decided that it was best for me to join my angel siblings at the Bridge as my condition was rapidly degenerating, and she was afraid I was suffering.
My prognosis was not very encouraging when I was rescued at 7 months old. The specialist said I was not going to be 2 years old. I crossed the Bridge this afternoon, in Sabrina's arms, at the age of 2 1/2. I was loved and cuddled and cherished while I was with mom and Saby. I learned to enjoy walking in the grass with them, to play with toys and to love my food. I learned to eat and drink on my own and enjoy the plushiness of a doggie bed. I learned to hate baths, but hey! Nothing's perfect!
Mom said she will miss me being between her feet all the time, running around the kitchen island while she prepares food and my cuteness. I followed her around constantly.
I love you mom.

Our little guy will turn 2 years old on August 2. We are getting antsy as most vets told us that, dogs with hydrocephalus don't live much longer than 2 years after their birth. I find myself checking all his movements, how long he sleeps, how much he eats and his posture.
The posture definitely changed; his back is very arched now. I was also told that if Ducky ever has a seizure, it will be the end for him. No seizure so far...wonderful! He is such a happy little boy. He loves his food, Taste of the Wild, and he tries to climb on the baby gate to get to the food faster at mealtime.
We love him crazy and we are hoping and praying that he will beat the odds and stay with us for a long time.

Mom is thrilled... so am I! Mom didn't expect me to live to this age but I made and I am doing very well thank you! I heard her say I would get new toys today... can't wait to see what it's going to be!
Although I still have issues with spinning on the left side sometimes, I do it much less than I used to. I don't grind my teeth anymore. My baby teeth were taken out and it went very well.
I play with toys and my siblings and I love it when mom cuddles me and gives me kisses. That gives me a boost of energy and happiness, and I step and jump and run when she puts me down. That is how I show her I'm a happy boy.
