Piper came to us
through the infamous March 2010 auction.
At first all appeared to be well with her,
but shortly after she went to her forever
home it became apparent that this was not
so. A visit to the Vet revealed that she
was suffering from kidney damage (not kidney
disease) and was functioning on just one
kidney. Immediately her new people and
DDTRL took steps to alleviate the
situation. At first with medication and a
special kidney diet she did well. Sadly in
April 2011 she again showed signs of
distress and was found once again to be in
renal (kidney) failure.
This time she
could not be saved and much to the distress
of her people, her companion dog and members
of DDTRL she went to the Rainbow Bridge on
24th April, 2011. She was just 4 years
received medical treatment at the time the
damage occurred she could have lived a
normal lifespan but, of course, Puppy
Millers just do not give medical treatment
to their unfortunate animals.
long be remembered for her loving
personality, her little squeaky bark and the
valiant fight she waged to live.
Be at peace
