Sad Easter

Hi! I am back and it wasn't a good Easter for us here. First of all little Matilda one of the puppies dumped in the box died of distemper. The other two could be infected as well so mom won't let us play out front because Cookie and Rusty could be vulnerable. They have been vaccinated but Rusty only got his last of three vaccinations after they arrived and Mom says they had the virus already then. Every time I see mom she is carrying disinfectant or bleach. She is worried sick about Luiza as well who couldn't be vaccinated due to her mange.

Poor Matilda never even got to live her life due to negligence of the humans. If her mother had been vaccinated she would have had some immunity. Mom says her mother is probably dead from it as well. They weren't allowed to suckle long enough and weren't vaccinated. It's a story that keeps on repeating here. The people that dumped the dogs knew they were ill and have now exposed other dogs to the pain Matilda went through. I cried so much then Emmy came and said she would look after Matilda. That made me feel a bit better. Mom tried everything she now gives the other two puppies anti biotics and serum daily. They have had ten days worth and when she stopped they got ill so now another ten days worth. Distemper is a killer of puppies. Mom says there is an epidemic of it every year. It made me realize how lucky I was that Mom took me in and vaccinated me. It could so easily of been me. Then Molly got ill two days later on Easter Monday. We don't know what was the matter with her but she died too. The vet said she was a lot older than Mom and dad had thought and could be anywhere between ten and fifteen. She had been to Hell and back on the streets so I guess her body couldn't take anymore. Emmy has been busy up there.

Then as if that wasn't enough sadness Mini who has been ill for a year with kidney failure took a turn for the worst and died. I didn't have time to wipe the tears I shed for Molly and the Mini went. She was very ill.

I sat on Mom's lap to comfort her but I just started crying with her. Mom says rescue is great work but sometimes very sad. I see that now. Emmy helps a lot even though she isn't here. She welcomes all the dogs when they get to Heaven. She tells them about her life here with Mom. She was always good to me. She chose me to write the blog. She made me a responsible and caring dog. I have a huge responsibility now. I will see it through. I have to blog about the sad times as well as the happy times.  The blog is about our lives here and what happens. Sometimes what happens is sad. Anyway heading for Mom's lap again. 
RIP Matilda too young to die
RIP Molly Had a shitty life in the streets. 
RIP Mini too ill to go on 
may you rest in God's arms and run free and healthy. Where's my mom?

Foley awaits all your fosters and watches over them when they cross the Bridge. Then she finds homes for them in the human section of the Bridge where they get the family they never got on Earth. They are prepared for the love because of the love they received from your Mom
