Rolly is gone

May 01, 2009 - 9 comments

Rolly the Runt died this morning.  He was born without a tail and without an anus and couldn't expel waste.  We tried to save him (before knowing about his anus) but it didn't work.  He stopped breathing for over a minute last night, his little body all rigid.  But then he relaxed and started breathing again. We held him and loved on him as much as possible and he died early this morning.  I've never gone through something like that.  It's just sad.  The poor little guy.

Thanks Debs. I'm lucky to have DH. He's been around puppies his whole life so he's much better at handling this stuff.  But we gave it our best.  The other 6 puppies are doing really well.  Thriving.  They are little porkers and they eat all the time.  So I'm happy that they are all big and strong.

Awww, that is so sad.  We lost a little kitty due to an unknown birth defect so I know how devastating it can be.  At least you were with him :*(

Poor baby. I'm so sorry. I hate that. I was with my friend when her cat had kittens and we didn't know it right away but the cat wasn't producing enough milk and the kittens started dying one by one. We were trying to rub them and keep them warm and I ran out to the pet store and bought kitten formula and we really tried to keep them alive but all 7 of them died within a few days. It was so sad. I hate it when that happens. :( I'm so sorry you lost a puppy. I'm glad if the others are healthy.
Bless you,
April

Awww poor little baby! But atleast you know he is not suffering anymore. I'm glad to hear that all the other pups are doing well.

I'm really glad that his life wasn't prolonged.  As harsh as that may sound. I can only imagine the pain that little guy must have been feeling.  The other puppies are all very healthy and strong.  They are already getting so big.  I'm going to try to take more pictures this weekend.  They will be a week old tomorrow.
