It is with a heavy heart that announce that our little boy crossed the rainbow bridge at noon today. He rallied yesterday and seemed to be coming around but began to falter in the evening. He went down hill fast over night. We knew we were in trouble when he stopped nursing and mom started pushing him away. We tried everything we could, but sometimes mother nature knows best.
The good news is that the other pups are THRIVING - fat as pigs and noisy as all get out. Their eyes should be opening any day and then the fun will begin. I just wonder how long it will take them to learn how to climb out of the whelping box.
I co-own Jill with Shirley H. and this litter is hers. The theme for this litter is the letter "Y" - The names Shirley has come up with so far are Yum-Yum, Yogi, Yorick, Yancey, Yippie-ki-a. I came up with Yo-Yo, Yin/Yang, Yahoo and Yankee Doodle. We would love to hear any ideas that you all may have.
