Bomber - One of My Babies

As some of you know, 7 years ago I pulled Steffi from animal control. She had been trapped with a male GSD in a rural area. AC had euthanized the male before they called me about her. It turned out that Steffi was very pregnant and on July 8, 2002 we had 11 puppies. We kept Rio and Cooper.

All of the puppies will always be my babies and I have kept in touch with the adopters over the years. A few were friends and a few others became good friends. I found out this morning that we lost Bomber, one of the babies to bloat yesterday.

Rest in Peace Bomber, I will always love you. July 8, 2002 - June 10, 2009

Re: Bomber - One of My Babies

awww, Sandy, i'm so sorry. my deepest sympathies to Bomber's family, you and your husband included.

But the jar he was making did not turn out as he had hoped, so he crushed it into a lump of clay again and started over. ~ Jer. 18:4

Re: Bomber - One of My Babies

The vet felt a large tumor in his abdomen and said that's what probably caused him to bloat. He's the 3rd puppy from the litter that has bloated. Rio and one of the other boys bloated on the same weekend last October and both were treated at the same ER vet. Rio only needed the tube, but Midnight had the full surgery. And we had a scare with Cooper too last year. It must be genetic.

Re: Bomber - One of My Babies

That's so sad. I'm very sorry. Sasha got bloat about 6 years. We were all very lucky and they saved her, but it was still a horrible experience.

Re: Bomber - One of My Babies

RIP Bomber

That is a lot from one litter, another example to go with the genetic theory, which I think is an accurate theory. I hate bloat

Hugs to the rest of the litter, I know you all watch them with an eagle eye! Love the pictures, they are all beautiful!

Re: Bomber - One of My Babies

I am so sorry, it must be hard to have this happen to one of "your" puppies. He was gorgeous. RIP Bomber boy.
I think you will have to closely monitor the other puppies.

Re: Bomber - One of My Babies

Thanks everyone. This is the day I've dreaded since we had the litter. I was hoping it wouldn't come for many more years.

I feel so bad for the family. Bomber's little boy doesn't understand. He wanted to go and get him from the vet last night. He thought he was left at the vet to get better.
