**PLEASE READ**

Poor Maddie was diagnosed with Parvo Monday by the local vet as I
presumed after noticed early symptoms of vomiting, refusing to eat, and
drink. My mom is the one who lent me the money in the first place to carry
her to the vet due to my husband still hasn't got paid yet from his new
job. The vet gave me an IV to give her 3 times a day, roughly every eight
hours to keep her hydrated. It is no easy task to take care of a dog
with Parvo, there is vomiting and bloody watery stool, but I cleaned
her up and wiped the vomit from her little mouth. Things I thought were
looking better, but it turned out opposite. She lost alot of weight
and was just so weak and fragile it broke my heart. I remember a few
nights ago, even though in pain she would wobble into my husband and
I's bedroom and want up on the bed with us...just to be with us, the
people that loved her.

Yesterday, my husband and I went to a family get together at his
Grandma's house to celebrate their Thanksgiving and then we
went to see his Dad who has been in ICU in the hospital for 3
months now. When we got home, I discovered I left the bathroom
door open where I had been keeping her and she had left the
bathroom. We found her laying down on her side in the living room
and she wasn't even able to pick her head up and look at us and
was as limp as a dish rag and couldn't stand up. It was a horrible
night of pain for her,she became delirious also barking madly all
night at nothing due to she was suffering. We didn't think she would
survive the night, but she did.

When I got back from church this morning around 12:20 or so,
I discovered her pain and suffering had stopped and she went to
doggy heaven. I feel like my heart is going to burst now.

Maddie made me so extremely happy the time I was able to
spend with her while she was on this earth. I was in her life
from the moment Missy (her Dam) first gave birth to her.
You couldn't ask for a better dog, she LOVED everyone,
even strangers and brought a smile to their face. She
really loved going to the park for walks and chasing the
leaves as they blew and enjoyed bringing pine cones all
the way home in her mouth for Daddy. She was also
so beautiful.

Please pray for my husband and especially I as we grieve
over our baby who we was so attatched to, she was like
a child to us.

I'd like to share some pictures at this time I took of her all
through her life.

Also please everyone, make sure you get your dogs all their vaccinations
and keep them up to date on them, because it's not worth loosing
them and feeling the way I do right now. :(
Mercymoon, so sorry for your loss. This has been a real wake-up call for us. We do have one pup that is past due on her shots, due to the fact that she had some real problems with her baby shots, we have been real slack about getting her anymore, was waiting until she was a little older, but NOT going to wait any longer, since hearing about Maddie.

Thank you, and indeed it is a great loss. I am glad you are going
to get your puppy an updated shot, that makes me happy.

I am so sorry for your loss. I really hoped to get on here this morning and find she was recovering. I can't imagine what I would be like if our baby was taken from us. At least you can know she is happy and pain free now at :rainbow: bridge.

I am so very sorry...it must be awful for you...at least you know you did everything you could and she isn't in pain anymore.

I know that is little comfort to how you are feeling right now, but I hope that your happy memories of her are coming to mind to ease the pain.

Oh my goodness, I am so sorry. Growing up we had several dogs die of parvo. It was heartbreaking. (This was in the day where most people never once took their pets to the vet).

Baxter and Bella are always kept up to date on their shots. I couldn't stand to watch another pet die to this disease.

I am so sorry for your loss. Sweet Maddie was just a little doll. Please take care of yourself and your baby. I know it's hard, and some get lost in grief at times like this...but I hope that you can find peace in the fact that sweet Maddie girl is no longer in pain. ((HUGS))
