So Long, Sophie

Mere days after taking in Sophie and getting her vaccinated, she began to appear ill. Tracy took her back to the vet where it was discovered she has the parvo virus. She has been at the vet for several days now receiving fluids and 24 hour care.

All to no avail. Today Sophie was euthanized.

My guess is that Sophie's mother had parvo and passed it on to her litter. Rather than give the puppies proper care, the irresponsible redneck idiot dog owners just turned the puppies loose to quietly die in the woods somewhere.

From there Sophie made it to our home, where, all too briefly, she had a family and lots of love.
