Default RIP little man.. you can run free now.. <3

Sorry I haven't been active in a while, we don't have internet for the time being but should have it up and running again in the next few weeks.

I am very heartbroken to say that on Sunday, April 18th little Mikie crossed over the Rainbow Bridge. One week ago today I arrived home from work to find him in a severe hypoglycemic shock.. we rushed him to the vet, he was intubated, had a seizure but we managed to get enough Karo syrup in him to boost his blood sugars back up. We aren't sure what caused him to stop eating as he'd been free feeding fine... took him home. Since then, he was doing much better but we still had to force feed him. He had no appetite, not for anything- no food, no meat, absolutely nothing enticed him. We had hoped he would pull through... unfortunately, the condition we'd all had in the back of our minds but didn't want to face was true... Mikie had hydrocephalus. Doc mentioned it being a possiblity when we had rushed him in just due to his slow development and the symptoms I was describing, but we knew we wanted to try what we could. It wasn't hard to notice that he practically hadn't changed in size since he was 6 weeks..
Sunday morning was a heartbreaking routine of administering Karo Syrup / Nutrical but it was a losing battle. I knew he was suffering.. I wasn't going to give up on him but I let him know if it hurt too much to hold on that he didn't have to.. he passed away that afternoon.
It's devestating and I will never, EVER understand how people can deliberately breed dogs. I don't get it. The heartache is NOT worth it. Both Peter and Davy have gone to their new WONDERFUL homes, and it's been a hard journey but it's over now... two brothers are beginning their new lives and Mikie will now be able to rest peacefully with Mickey. <3
Run free little guy.. you will be dearly missed. <3
