    How dreadfully sad, I'm so sorry for your loss. You must be devastated at losing your little boy. If you decide to go ahead and bring Anna into your life, I hope she brings you great joy. Nothing can replace Teddy, but Anna might find a different place in your heart? It's good that you have several weeks to think about things.

    I am sorry you lost your precious Teddy. You can never prepare yourself for how much it hurts to lose a friend. Especially at such a young age. I hope Anna brings you much needed happiness. I will keep you in my prayers.

    So sorry about your loss of Teddy. Its always so much harder when they go young and suddenly. However, the memories of his time with you will always be in your heart and his special place will remain there.

    You still have plenty of time to decide what to do with Anna, but if you take her she will have another special place in your heart.

    So I talked to the vets further today. I had requested they do an autopsy on him before I buried Teddy. Evidently this isn't something that is done very often, but it provided the vets and the Unv of Ark alot of valuable information into the breed.

    So here is what they said. Teddy evidently was nearly starved as a pup, probably from his first owner (how I wish I could give him/her a piece of my mind) and as result had an extremely underdeveloped liver and stomach. This allowed for his epilepsy to get as bad as it did.

    The hemorage however was caused by a heart trying to pump through an aorta that was underdeveloped because of lack of growth. In the picture I posted that was Teddy's heaviest weight at 12lbs. The vet actually had two sheriff's meet me at the vet to discuss abuse charges. After a bit of talking and explaining how I received Teddy they decided that I was not the cause of said abuse and I gave them the name of the breeder so they can attempt to find the person who did this.

    Overall the vet was amazed at how long Teddy lived and said he most likely passed in his sleep. This was something that eased my heart greatly. Everyone out there please be careful if you ever get a rescue. They will be a great addition to your family and will always have a place in your heart, but make sure that the previous person didn't mishandle your pup.

    I am so sorry to hear about Teddy. Know that you gave him the best possible life and he was loved. I think it's good that you had the autopsy (necropsy) done on him. It's just so sad that he was so neglected initially and that's what caused him to have such a short life. It must be a relief to know he passed in his sleep and didn't suffer. I'm so so sad though, when you lose on suddenly like this it is such a blow.
