Update June 27th I Can Do This. I Know I Can.

His kennel cough has developed into full blown pneumonia. Dr. Kinsel is working so hard to get him through this, but she is unsure at this point if he is going to make it through the weekend. Keep up the positive thinking and we can all hope that little Jack can find the strength to beat this nasty illness so that he can find a loving family.

Keep sending those Setter Zen's my way.

Update June 26th

He's the little fighter making his name sake proud. He has made it through the Parvo stage, but now is dealing with pneumonia and kennel cough and is not keeping medications down. He is still fighting, so everyone continue thinking positive and hopefully this little guy will pull through.

Update Morning of June 25th

Little JD is struggling. He is vommiting and has diarrhea- but he is still alive. With Parvo- all that can be done is supportive care, IV fluids so they don't dehydrate, IV antibiotics and anti-nausea meds. The virus will run its course and we can only hope he is strong enough to survive.

I'm Fighting For My Life

I'm about 7 or 8 weeks old and just came into foster care with my mommy, Patsy, and as all dogs, we went to the vet for check-ups. Well, mommy has some minor issues, but I heard the vet tell my human, that I am really, really, sick. I have PARVO. I didn't know it, but they say I could go to the Bridge, way before my time. Little Dempsey he is going to stay with Dr. Kinsel until he is out of the woods. He is 10 pounds and VERY CUTE.

Now I don't know exactly what that means, but they had some really serious faces and my human had tears in her eyes. She had to leave me there and my mommy was very upset. She too, doesn't know what's going on. I WANT TO LIVE!! I want to be a puppy and play. I NEED YOUR HELP! PLEASE say a prayer for me and if you can, will you help with my vetting. This isn't going to be cheap and I AM WORTH EVERY PENNY!

I just want to say, Mommy, I LOVE YOU and I WILL COME BACK TO YOU. I PROMISE. Love, Dempsey


I Miss You
