It is with a heavy heart I bring the news we have lost our girl Gypsy, as of 1:45 a.m. this morning Tuesday August 18th. She had a couple of very difficult days, starting Sunday evening when she began panting incessantly. We took her to our vet, Dr. Maria Williams, who ran blood work and started her on fluids. Dr. Maria called us early afternoon and suggested we come back early to get Gypsy as she was deteriorating quickly. Her heart was pounding out of her chest and her blood work showed her kidneys were failing. We brought her home and she spent her last hours with her family.
What made her passing so difficult is we feel we were blindsided. On Sunday morning Gypsy was pawing at our bed as usual, enjoyed her walk in the park, and enjoyed her breakfast. She had always had iffy kidney numbers and Dr. Maria had concerns about her heart all along, however we had controlled both problems with supplements and Chinese herbs.
Here is the last picture we have of Gypsy, taken a couple of days ago for Roxie’s 16th birthday:
And here a couple of the first pictures we have of Gypsy taken in 2001:
Please give your fur-kids an extra big hug for me today,
