A Quick update... New Puppy

I just wanted to do a quick post so you guys know what's going on with me. As most of you know I lost my dog Honey 2 months ago and it's been very hard on me coping with her loss. I decided I needed another dog. I've started my search about 2 weeks ago and it was very frustrating because it just felt like nothing would ever be as good as Honey and in fact it made me miss her more. Other News is that we're in the process of buying our first house and I was wanting to time it out so I could get the new pup once we moved in.

Well I found some pups over the weekend and they were too precious to pass up. We drove an hour and a half on Saturday to the next town over and picked up two Pomeranian sisters. One for me and one for my mom. We were super excited about the idea of having two sisters not to mention their birthdays are 11/11/11. We got them from the daughter of the breeder and everything seemed good, they were active and healthy looking so we bought them and went on our merry way. Well I wish I could say everything worked out and we're all happy. The first night I was having problems with my pup that started around midnight , she'd throw up every 30 mins till almost morning. I thought that maybe since i gave it some puppy food that wasn't the puppy food she was used to eating it upset her stomach plus the small dog did have a super stressful day with all the traveling and the new home and people I figured it was just that. I did send my husband to go get the dog food brand she was eating and some pedialyte since i read that was good to give to small pups if they are vomiting a lot. After the food intake and the pedialyte in the morning she seemed to get better she didn't vomit for hours and she was eating so I thought okay she's fine will just take her to the vet in the morning just to get checked out. Well my mom's pup didn't have any issues saturday night , It's the smaller of the two and overall it wasn't as active as my pup but we figured okay it's a baby weighs only a pound or so it should be fine. So Sunday my pup was doing pretty good while my mom's took a turn for the worse, it didn't do much of anything didn't eat anything just walked two steps and then would sleep while my pup did sleep a lot but in between it was very playful and active. It was so bad that I called the lady I bought the dogs from to get some advice. I told her everything and she said that that's normal since the two are very small dogs and they've gone through a lot of stress. She also mentioned to put a dab of maple syrup on the little ones nose to spike up it's blood sugar level. So my mom did that and nothing the dog got so bad that she couldn't even walk. I drove over to my mom's at 1am to check out what was happening and the poor pup wagged it's tail super hard but couldn't even get up. We have a 24 emergency clinic near me but I've had so many bad experiences that i refuse to go back there. (They once offered to put my cat to sleep for 500.00 saying they could do nothing for it except for a 3,000 surgery to save it. I took the cat to the regular vet the next morning and they saved the cats life with something simple the emergency vet overlooked. ) Plus the dog was in such bad shape I honestly didn't think any vet could do anything. So my mom's pup makes it through the night and we go right away to the vet in the morning. My pup started to get worse over the night and threw up just a few times and just seemed weak overall. So I'm at the vet with two puppies we just bought on Saturday with one pretty much half dead and the other one getting worse. Turns out They both have Parvo. My mom had to put her to sleep because it was having seizures and there was no way it was going to make it. I feel so bad for my mom she never even got to name hers, and heartbroken over the loss of this poor little furbaby. My pup wasn't as in bad shape but it did power vomit at the vet and it had blood in it. They say puppies have a 50/50 chance of recovering on parvo treatment so the only thing i can do is hope the treatment works on my pup. I'm so sorry for rambling I'm so tired, so sad so angry. I called the lady I bought the pups from and left her a message just telling her i want to talk to her about the vet visit. I doubt she will call back. The vet says that parvo takes 3 days to 2 weeks before signs of it will show so these puppies were sick before we even bought them and it upsets me that someone would sell puppies to someone knowing they aren't quite right. Especially after I told her how I just lost my long time companion just a few months ago. She had this sales contract she made me sign stating that they dogs are in perfect health as far as they know and that i have 24 hours to get them checked by my vet. Well I bought them on a saturday and no vet i know is open on sunday and out of all the excitement of getting the pups I didn't stop to think i need to change anything on the "contract". I did call her before the 24 hour time period to let her know we were having serious issues with the two pups and that i was taking them to the vet on monday. I doubt she will even return my call let alone do the right thing. She's put me and my family through hell and it's just not right that people are allowed to do things like that and not be held accountable for it. I'm so sad I still grieve the loss of honey and now instead of having a happy healthy pup I have to deal with the loss of one puppy and the possibility that mine is next.  Forgive me if I don't post for a little bit I'm so broken up and outraged. I haven't even picked a name out yet.... I'm hoping she makes it through the week.....

The two sisters on the way home, My mom's fur-Angel is the one on the bottom : ( 


Our first bath together

 I put her down on the ground at the Vet's office and she laid down like this....look at those two cute hind legs!

  2. I am SO sad and upset by what you've had to go through. That is absolutely horrendous, I am so sorry that you had to lose Honey and then deal with this atrocious mess. Truly, someone selling you and your mother pups in this condition is shocking. 
    I really hope that your pup makes it, and I can't imagine how your mom is feeling. 

    Much love,
    Mimi

  5. I am so sorry to hear about this. I am also sorry for your earlier loss.

    I work with animals for a living, I know these things can suck. You should go over the paper records the breeder gave you. See if they followed protocol and what the rules in your state are for selling pets. If they are licensed with a kennel club or a breed club what the rules are there for you to file a complaint with them.

    Usually pets get one series of vaccines before they go home with an owner, so it would be important to see what it says on her papers.

    Good Luck and I hope everything works out.xoxo

  6. I am really sorry to hear about this, Katherine -- especially given what you've gone through in the last two months. Seriously, give me that "breeder's" phone number and I will call her myself! Is there anywhere you can report her for if she legally violated any breeding and selling protocols?

    Hope your new girl gets better soon. :( <3

  7. I am so, so sorry for the loss. What a sweet little angel. I am passionate about animals and this just tears my heart out. I had a problem with a breeder about twelve years ago, similar to this, and decided that I would never ever deal with one again. I usually find my babies, haha, except for my sweet Siamese Lily. I adopted her from a pound, which is always a great place to find little darlings. I hope the breeder who wronged you and those babies gets what she deserves. I will be praying for her and for you. Hope things get better. <3

  8. Oh my gosh honey. I am so so sorry about this - my mom was a breeder and there's no way she wouldn't have done the right thing so it really bothers me to hear the lady hasn't responded to you yet! :( Poor little babies. I hope your baby does make it through, sending you lots of blessings.

  9. nicole I finally got a hold of her she is going to send money back for my moms pup, but there is no money that can make up for what we have gone through, I'm supposed to call her and let her know if anything happens to the other pup. This parvo is so harsh I don't think my pup is strong enough to fight it just trying to do what I can to make this as comfortable for her

  19. Oh how tragic!  For all of you !  Those poor little babies.  It's immoral that the seller may not have the integrity to make amends somehow.  So so sorry for your loss....of Honey and of the new little one.  I empathize with your pain and outrage.  You all are in my thoughts and prayers.

  20. You should contact your State's animal humane society. The SPCA should look into the place you got the puppies from. It's good that she refunded you, however nobody should ever go through what your family is going through right now. Nor does it sound like she has a safe place for animals. My condolences on your loss and I hope that your furbaby heals.

  21. aw, hope she makes it through xxxxx are you able to report this breeder ??   Parvo is deadly serious and she should be blacklisted if she's had an outbreak.  Fingers crossed FluffBaby pulls through xxx

  22. Sweetie, when you get a chance, email me. Kimberslacquerkornergmail. I spent 10 years as a veterinary technician specializing in Emergency medicine and Ortho Surgery. Your poor baby had classic parvo symptoms and the breeder (assuming she's not a backyard/accidental breeder that didn't get mama or pups any vet care) should have known that they have parvo as soon as you told her the symptoms. Parvo is very recognizable (I can tell from the smell alone), and most breeders are aware that puppies run the risk of contracting it. We always told breeders to thoroughly bleach out an area where any other dogs had been just in case, since the pups can't get the vaccine until 6 weeks of age. Ugh, I could go on and on. Bottom line though is that the breeder should be held liable, and if your pups got it, the whole litter has it. And it's alive and spreading in the are where she keeps her dogs. If she's a responsible breeder she should pay the vet bills, etc. Anyway, email me and I'll shoot you my phone number. Obviously I can't run over and help out, but I can always let you know what you can do to keep any of your furbabies ok overnight or until you can get to the vet. Or let you know if you even need to go to the vet. It's a small consolation, but it helps to have a Vet Tech friend! I spend alot of time helping my friends out with their furbabies, as well as my own.

    I really hope your baby pulls through. I had a pup contract Parvo from a dog park once, and she pulled through and is now almost 7 years old and an incredible dog. I'll be thinking happy, healthy thoughts for your little fluffball! Please keep us posted. As for her "contract", I don't think it's valid if you couldn't make it to a vet (IE no vet open) within 24 hours. Plus, Parvo takes anywhere from 2 days to 2 weeks to show up (usually around 5-7), so even had you had her checked, it may not have shown on a snap test. It's a pain in the ass, but I would go after her. What she did wasn't right. And her insistence on your signing that document tells me something is really fishy there.
    I'm thoroughly pissed off for you! I'll shutup now, but shoot me an email and I'll pass you my number. That way if you ever need anything, just gimme a call or text and I'll help as much and any way I can. :)

  23. As the mommy of a pom I assure you you have my prayers!!  We got our sweetheart from a breeder they made us wait 3 months before we could take her home to be sure she wasn't leaving her mom too soon.  Hang in there!!  I hope she gets better soon!!!
