Rocket – July, 2011

Little Rocket came to me with a terrible case of mange, intestinal parasites, and other assorted maladies. His kennel cough quickly developed into pneumonia. This little boy settled in quickly and it was very apparent that he was not used to a warm, loving environment.

His health continued to deterioate and he was taken to an NCBR vet for his pneumonia. It was then it was discovered that both valves in his heart were very narrow (a genetic condition) and he was suffering. He crossed over the bridge.

While I only had him a week, I am so glad I got to know him. He was a great boy and my heart is heavy with his passing.
