The emaciated puppy died this morning. This is what Sandy wrote:
"...I went in the back of the vets office with her new sheepskin bed and the cage was empty, my heart just sank to my stomach and my eyes welled having this worst feeling. The staff looked at me knowing how upsetting this was but didn't have the heart to tell me. The vet was busy with another client then he came to tell me that she had died this morning. They had done everything they could for her but she was too far gone. I was at least comforted in knowing that she had died with dignity, some food in her tummy, love from us all and a warm bed rather than the slow agonizing death if you hadn't come across her".
"The doctor said she passed quietly this morning. She gave up eating yesterday afternoon and they continued to give her liquids through her mouth along with the nutrical and other oral vitamins. They wanted to do an IV drip to give her liquids when we first brought her in but since she was so dehydrated they couldn't even find a vein..."
