    Hi All

    Off to the vet again this afternoon... Poor little girl has blood & mucas in her stools, hopefully nothing serious... Ive been told it may just be tape worm....

    Fingers crossed that she may now be strong enough to give her the second round of vaccines.

    Default You are a sweetheart to do this!!

    She may have picked up colitis from ingesting something she shouldn't... Gracie was a professional at that when she was a puppy. Keep us posted. We ran across a young female Cavalier a few months ago that was the only survivor of a bad birth... she was VERY tiny and was handfed for WEEKS! We actually inquired about taking her but the breeder fell in love with "Bitsy" and could not part with her. She had a bent leg that will need some surgery later on but she could get around faster than Gracie!!

    I do think you point out how important it is for us not to leap to conclusions about people's circumstances here on the board. Easy to get jaded from the many stories of bad breeding situations.

    I will be rooting for Ruby and for you.

    Saying a prayer for your little girl. If love could heal, I am sure she will get well, as it's obvious how much you adore her.

    Let us know the moment you know anything.

    Default Good news

    Hi All
    Took Ruby to the vet yesterday as I said I would. The vet very pleased with the way she is coming along. As Karlin predicted the vacinatines have to be started again so she was given her first round again yesterday with the booster to follow mid October


    The vet believes she has a burst capillary in her bum & thats where the blood is coming from... He figures that the Mum & Puppy food is probably a bit strong for her little system & she may have got constipated from it & burst a capillary (Sorry but there really is not a nice way to explain this). However he feels for the time being we should keep her on the mum & puppy just to build her up a bit more.


    Poor little might yelped something terrible when she was vacinated & when I picked her up to sit on the sofa last night she yelped again... She was really sore but is back to hr normal bouncy self today haha


    So at last little Ruby appears to be turning a corner & coming along at last....


    Thank you all again for your messages of support for Ruby... You are all so kind

    Your right we do jump to conclusions... With soooo many horror storys about breeders & bad handlers out there.... But have we noticed, we never hear the good storys???? We just forget that there are responsible breeders out there & there are genuine dog lovers out there too...Just like all of us...

    But hey, maybe its time we broke the mould & share the good doggie storys we hear & let Karma or God orThe Universe or whoever deal with the bad ones....

    Default More celebrating of good news would be great

    We do need more good news so that we do not lose heart and feel it is hopeless! I was so thrilled to find a great breeder who has been doing four generations of MRI scans as well as the other vital health tests. This should be celebrated!! She has had four generations of breeding dogs without CM!!! I would like to give her some kind of award that everyone in the world would know about... as a way to show that it CAN be done. Then maybe others would follow in her footsteps. I do salute those pressing hard for more health testing and making more of them mandatory, but in the meantime, we can't forget all the good people out there doing their best.

    Hope that wee Ruby is on the mend soon!!

    Oh, I'm anxious to hear more about your little button. And maybe a picture, she sounds like a dolly. Claire cried at one of her vaccinations and was sore the first day, but was like your Ruby, and back to herself within a day. I think the tiny ones feel it more.

    Do keep us up on how she is doing,
