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.
