On the good news front, the remaining two puppies, siblings of puppy Caine, checked out okay at the vet's yesterday! They show no signs of the heart disease that the other puppies died from. It was time for some good news. In the words of their caretakers:
Absolutely speechless! Our 2 little miracles, (say that again) MIRACLES have escaped the heart disease that took the lives of Mama, Jasmine, Snapdragon and Caine. The Doctor said their hearts are beating strong and they should live healthy long lives. We needed this so badly. The heartache was beginning to be too much too bare. Even though it's Wednesday, I think a happy dance and a celebration is just what the Dr ordered! We are truly blessed. Thank you for sending prayers and love!
That made my day yesterday.
