Tearful Tuesday

Sad news from the Dogster world today. This is the email I received just moments ago. Please keep this family in your thoughts and prayers. It could happen to any of us.

I’ve just been informed that three Dogster pups, all belonging to the same household, have been poisoned by antifreeze. It saddens me to share the news that all have passed over to Rainbow Bridge.

The beautiful dogs lost were Jake, Joey, and Nari. Not much is known at this time, but it’s suspected that someone in the neighborhood is responsible. I will update as soon as I have more information. In the meantime, please visit their homepages and leave a little love.

I have no doubt their owner is in desperate need of some kind thoughts to help get her through this. We extend our heartfelt condolences to the family.

Antifreeze poisoning is a big issue because dogs are drawn to the sweet smell. Dogs have even been known to chew through the container when they find it left in the garage or elsewhere in the house. It’s so important to make sure the container is stored in a safe and secure place, just like you would do if you had a small child at home. It’s reported that about 10,000 accidental poisonings, both cats and dogs, happen per year.

Death by antifreeze poisoning is not a pretty way to go, it’s a long and painful death. The good news is that if you get your pet to the vet within 9-12 hours after ingestion they may recover.

I am not skilled enough to know how to embed links, so here is a link the old fashioned way.

Please take a moment to hug your furrie babies....I know I am.

OMdoG.. this is so tragic. Mom says she can't imagine losing me or Hershey, let alone poor Jasmine who lost 3 of her babies.
Psst.. Mom was threatning to 'kill' Hershey cos mom discovered that Hershey chewed up a huge chunk of her fairly new curtains. After reading this sad story, I think Hershey is spared for now..

Marvin -The Hollow Hound said...

Run free and free from pain dear dogs, what a terribly sad thing to happen.

So tragic, our hearts go out to their bipeds. They must be crazy with grief. Living with bipeds who adore us, it's hard to imagine how anyone could do such a horrible thing - GRRRRRRRRRRR!

Hi Mya Boo Boo,

Thanks for coming to visit me and your lovely comment! I love making new friends and I look forward to reading all about your adventures and getting to know your family!

Wow - you have a BIG pack, don't you? I'm an "only pet" at the moment, although I did have a kitty sister that I grew up with but she died suddenly in January - we still really miss her.

You are very beautiful, Mya Boo Boo - such amazing eyes!!
