    Re: Emergency...sick kid low temp -RIP

    Little Flashdance just passed. She had given up. I had not and tried til the end. Yes, she had BOSE and yes, I had tube fed, but to no avail. Her drive just wasn't there. I could see it. She just literally gave up and didn't fight it.

    Amazing how life works. Our little Ella got sick and she was a bottle baby...Flashdance was dam raised, with a bottle now and then. Ella pulled through and is a little fighter today...but she has drive. Ella isn't registered but is just a little bundle of energy. Flashdance was too but somehow her mom knew I think. Her sister Footloose was bigger and always got all the attention...first to nurse...when both went to her Paris would nudge on Footloose and Flashdance would have to catch up.

    As I said, I have Paris her mom and Lancelot her dad, so can repeat the breeding...but no two are ever alike....

    Thanks for all the :grouphug: and :pray: This community is so great...

    These losses are so hard. You would hope once they get to two months the worst is behind them, but nature has a way of controlling populations. Not pleasant for us, but you sure made a heroic effort.
    I am so very sorry.
