Sad news - sigh

It's March 21st, the 2nd day of spring, and it's snowing in Tennessee. How appropriate for yet another sad day at the Lyberty house. We lost two more puppies yesterday and have another one failing. We are powerless to stop this carnage and its breaking our hearts. The puppies will be fine one minute. then they suddenly start getting blue and die within 24 hours, despite our best efforts to save them. We have four remaining pups for now, one blue girl (a mismark), a black girl and two black boys left.
I have wanted to do this breeding almost from the day Star was born and had such high hopes for the outcome. We will not breed Star again.

I was so shocked to read this horrible news this morning. I check everyday to see how they are doing. Who am I kidding, I check two or three times a day. I am deeply sorry and do not blame you for not wanting to breed Star again. I will pray even harder for their survival. God bless.

We are so saddened by the additional loss of these sweet babies. We are hoping that the rest get stronger in the next couple of days. You have had too much loss already.
