It is hard any time we lose them, but to lose one so young is especially heartbreaking. I am so very sorry.

Hugs!
Jan

I am really sorry. I just read through the thread. Somehow I missed it. RIP, Little Akira.

First of all, and most importantly....what a heartbreak. So sorry to hear about your puppy. I don't know if my computer is acting up again, or maybe the forum is malfunctioning on my network (??) but I must have missed entirely what was going on with your puppy. As the owner of a 4 month old from a first time breeder (NOT a backyard breeder. Everyone starts somewhere, after all, don't they?) I am on high alert for stories of issues with other similar aged puppies, and I woulnd't forgive myself if I didn't at least ask what happened to your little puppy. Once again, you have my condolences, and please forgive the intrusion on your grief

I'm so, so, sorry. Her life was short, but with you, at least we all know it was sweet.

I'm so sorry - I thought she'd made progress?

She had severe hydrocephalus. Fluid buildup in the brain..It is usually congenital. Though it only occured in toy breeds..so I am completely shocked. I really hate that she had to go through this...

And yes, she WAS progressing, she was doing GREAT up until this weekend. Then she took a turn for the worse...I really am just so shocked, and cannot believe she is gone..

I looked through her photo album, and without knowing much, I could tell you gave her a very special life. All I could see is that she was a happy puppy living in the "now". And you should be so proud. I loved the pool picture and the one with her chew ....she was happy! I am so sorry for your loss. This year we lost a very special dog...I can easily say you never get over it but become better pet owners with a much greater heart. Healing will take time! This just breaks my heart as I have a puppy born the same day but two months earlier, again I couldn't imagine. Take care and know that all of us feel your loss...

I am so sorry and sad for your loss. I just lost my shepherd of 8 years, I can't imagine losing a puppy. RIP Akira. I have to believe that her and Franklin are playing together across the Rainbow Bridge.
