Our darling little Fred came to us as a rescue puppy. The first night I held him most of the night because he had kennek cough so bad. I really thought he wouldn't make it. After a few bumps in the road, mostly eating his own poop, he must have been starved in the litter, he snapped out of it and became a very loving, sweet little boy. He was always a pleaser, wanting to make mommy and daddy happy.|
He was one of the happiest dogs we had ever seen. He could throw one of his toys up in the air and catch it in the air with his front paws. Bouncing his ball down the steps was also a favorite pastime.
Sadly in 2009 he developed dry eye syndrome. The specialist said he wouldn't go blind, but by 2011 he was partially blind but handled it very well. This past year he went totally blind, and was devastated. He was so sad that he could no longer play like he used to. He became my little shadow, following me all over, listening to me guide him and bumping his nose to my leg. 6 weeks ago we found that he also had diabetes. That broke both our hearts, especially knowing that we couldn't afford the insulin and treatments that he would require. I also have diabetes and his monthly meds costs would have closely matched mine. We did bring him home for awhile, but didn't want to see him suffer so he gently left this world on 6/12/1013.
Rest, play and be so happy here our beloved Fred, mommy and daddy will see you soon.
