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.

We're so sad for your fambly, but we know you are doing great now at the Bridge. Enjoy your new life now Ducky!
Lexie and Mom
Ducky you had a very sad beginning but the middle part was pawsome. You got lots of loving and lots of care. You learned to enjoy your life. Sadly your condition did not allow for long life but you sure lived the best life possible. We know how sad your mom and Saby are now. They put so much into hoping against hope that it would be enough. Now you are healed in heaven and St. Frank will take good care of you. You will never get sick again, never feel anger again and never get those sad pustules. Now you are flying and running happy and free! Your smile is beautiful to behold and you are with your family and friends. St. Frank will make you meatballs and you will have lots of fun with the other angels.
It was nice having you on earth. You brought love and joy to others. We will miss you Ducky!
I'm soo sorry for your loss. you are now a pup angel.
I'm so sorry you had to cross the Bridge so soon Ducky. Thank Heaven you had such a loving Family who took such good care of you!
Fly free beautiful Angel.
