Sadie, one of our long-term foster pups just died two days ago…she had a heart murmur and threw a bloodclot which resulted in a major stroke. It was quick and she died running around the pool and playing with the rest of the pack. Sad…she was only 1.5 yrs old. Someone contacted us when they found her living in a park, starving and full of mange on June 2, 2011. We took her in because any shelter would have put her down. At least she had a year of happiness and comfort!
