RIP MONDO 2009-2012

Here is our beautiful boy. Look at those eyes. He was only 3 years old. We don't know what happened. The vet has no idea what happened--we have run through everything we can think of. Maybe spending a lot of money on a million tests might give us an answer but it would be too late to save him.

He was having a good day. Went outside, curled up in a ball and slept on my mom's lap. Then suddenly around 2pm he was shaking, wobbling, then convulsing. Within an hour my mom had him at the vet's. He had a fever of 108!! The vet brought it down to 104 with icy towels and introvenous solution--but she said it was too late. That such a high fever was fatal. He had been given 2 shots of valium and finally propofol--which she said was the last resort for dogs that didn't respond to valium. He finally relaxed. His eyes said he knew my mom was with him so she was able to hold him and talk to him as they gave him the final shot.
Mondo came to us with Mickey 3 years ago. We were supposed to adopt them out but my mom never did. Mondo was an alpha dog and so beautiful. He loved to be in my mom's lap and, fortunately, she had given him a lot of attention lately...not knowing he would be gone so soon.
Look at that happy boy. That is the way we will remember him. He had a very good beagle life. Run free, you incredible boy. You are with Bitey and Beau now.

RIP Jazz

 Oh, Jazz. You just turned 9 in May and now you are gone. It's so unfair. We will miss you so much. We loved to read about your life in Japan with Dixie and the new baby. Another fast moving disease that no one could diagnose. You can meet our friend Bolo and our beagles Bitey and Beau. Run with the wind, ears flapping, sweet girl.

RIP Bolo

He left us way too soon.

My mom loved his smoochy nose.

He was a unique, gentle loving being and we are really going to miss him a lot.

Here is his blog:

His stuffie will carry on for him.

Bye bye Bolo. Say hello to our Bitey and Beau for us.
