So, we're talking to breeder now about replacement. He's going to have to pay medical bills for us, and have a blood test on any new dog to make sure it's antibodies are good to go against parvo. Quite a mess really. Been an emotional few days, we're upset, sad, etc.
I had a 9 year old rot who was my best buddy, had to put him down right after my son was born. (Cancer) My wife and I got him when we first started dating, so he was there for everything. Dating, marriage, new home, new son. Took me a long time to be ready for another dog, and when we finally get excited and make the call to do it, this happens.
Oh well, I realize there are other things in life happening to other people (Sandy) and my ordeal is miniscule in comparison, but it still hurt. We told my son the pup had to go back to his mom to be better, and would need to stay there. We'll get a new dog that's healthy with no problems. Hoped that would make things easier, not ready to tell him the dog died. Well, it didn't help much, he balled his eyes out. That was the hard part!
Okay, thanks for listening, hope everyone's doing okay in here!
