Wellington McKenzie RIP

Sweet Wellington - in his 'cubater

Wellington passed away in his sleep this morning.  Bonny, who is fully recovered now, snuggled with him keeping him warm and making sure he knew he was loved .  The hoomans in my house did everything they could to feed and nurture him and for a while it looked like he would survive – but he just could not hold on.

Once Bonny is fully recovered she is going to become a career girl (be spayed) as this has been too traumatic an experience ever to repeat.

On a positive note and strangely, although sad my family are relieved the battle is over.  We would urge anyone considering breeding to bear in mind that things can go terribly wrong but things can also go wonderfully right.  We were unlucky, inexperienced and didn’t get good medical advice when it was needed.

We recommend you go visit the Rocky Creek Scotties, they had a litter of nine puppies and all grew into the most charming little characters finding furever homes.  Now that’s success!

I wish everyone a happy Sunday.  Tomorrow is another day and it is time to put this sad week behind us.

Hay Ho

    Oh, sweet little Wellington. I’m so sorry you had to leave so soon. Run free at the Bridge, wee one. Sometimes life doesn’t seem very fair at all.

    My mom and me are thinking of all of you and sending you warm, healing thoughts.

    Gentle wiggles and wags,

    How devastating. We had so hoped that little Wellington would make it. Poor Bonny. We lost three out of a little of seven once, so we know how you’re feeling. Hugs to everyone.

    XXXOOO Daisy, Kendra & Bella
