We are very sad today



















Marc and I have two furry children, Buddy the Miniature Pinscher and Gabby the Chihuahua. Buddy was Marc's dog before we married and Gabby was mine. When we introduced the soon to be siblings it was not pretty. Neither one of them was going to have it. They both ruled their respective roosts and did not share well with others. Marc and I would not let the initial setbacks scare us away from trying to make our newly created family more harmonious. After weeks of challenging moments to say the least, they finally fell into a rhythm of sorts and now are inseparable and have been for almost 7 years. Whenever you see one the other is not far behind. They even sleep curled up next to each other.

Unfortuately, we found out recently that Buddy who is about 14-15 years old has age related Kidney failure. We have been trying to slow it's progress but he has had a major setback last night and is at the Vet now for a few days while they try to stabilize him. Gabby is despondent without her "buddy" and so are we. If we are able to rally Buddy we fear that while we are in China he may take a turn for the worse again.

We are so worried and sad today and would be very appreciative for any positive energy that you all can flow our way.

Lori I'm so sorry!!! Sending you huge good thoughts. It's heartbreaking when our fur babies are sick, especially because they don't understand what's happening and you can't explain anything.
