Remember this cute thing?
Last week she started showing the first symptoms of distemper and five/six days later she died. It was a very sad thing to watch her deteriorate so quickly. I was sad but how was I going to explain this to the kids - again? (This is the third dog we have had that has died in a year - bad doggy karma I know. The first was another very sick little street pup and the second was our beloved, but very old, family dog.)
We knew a street dog is always a crapshoot (pardon mon francais) but this dear little pup was just doing so well before she got sick. The vet said no rebound puppies for us - we need to wait at least a week. I'm not sure I'm up for it as much as I love having a dog. We'll see.
This morning I went for a morning walk and was looking at all the street dogs ... everywhere ... and well, was just sad!
C'est tout. A happier post tomorrow. Promise.
