We took in Olympia (Glacier’s Going for the Gold) yesterday (9/9/12) to Animal ER which is connected to our reproductive veterinarian as she was 5 1/2 weeks pregnant and was having black discharge which we knew was not good. An x-ray was taken and was confirmed there were six puppies. Unfortunately, not one of them had a heartbeat.
The focus then turned completely to our girl. With a very accelerated heartbeat and breathing, she could not be put under to extract the dead fetuses. Thus, attempts to initiate contractions while awake had to occur. After spending most of the day yesterday fighting for her life, we finally had to make the decision to relieve her of the trauma and stress she was enduring. It was an emotional roller coaster to the end as she fought and she fought hard damn it. We are awaiting results from the reproductive veterinarian. While our hearts ache badly today, we are relieved she is not longer suffering. We miss you precious Olympia.
The staff at the Animal ER in Littleton are to be commended for their heroic attempts to save our little girl. They are phenomenal. Thank you, Dr. Derek Paul who was with her in the beginning and Dr. Kate Long who was with her through the end. Thank you to all the vet technicians who were assisting in making her comfortable.
I was looking up Laramie show information to put on here today and the first thing which populated was this video with our dog, Breck, getting Winner’s Dog in Laramie two years ago! I have no clue who shot the footage, but thank you to them for the nice surprise!
