A post I never thought I would have to write but I need to tell my friends here that our precious , longed for baby blue girl Violet is now at the bridge . We arrived home late on Saturday night and when she only ate a tiny bit of supper we put it down to the long journey home .. a good nights sleep and she woke and gave us a lovely fuss , went out did a wee and poo in the garden, had wags and more sniffs from the others and then only ate a small bit of breakfast . We popped out with her to get a new bowl and were so proud to carry her round and she enjoyed it .. back home and she didnít want lunch ... not yet here 24 hours we rang the vet who agreed a long journey and having left her family at Sarahís she would be a bit quiet . When she didnít want breakfast on Monday and was a little sick we took her straight in .. I was in constant touch with Sarah who agreed it was a good idea. Two visits on Monday showed no temperature , she wasnít dehydrated and on the second visit the vet thought she looked brighter than the morning .. she had an anti sickness jab and a painkiller as vet thought her tummy was a bit sore .

Monday night and she didnít want any food again , and the only fluid she had was the little syringes of water I was giving her every so often ..clearly she wasnít well

Tuesday morning and Tony was waiting outside the vets at 8 for them to have her on observation before the appt we had made for her at 10 .. nurse put her straight on a drip though said she still wasnít dehydrated ....

Vet saw her when she came in and thatís when the awful chain of events started .. a blood test showed something serious going on with her kidneys and Tone was advised to get her to Langford Vet hosp asap .. I drive to the car park and had to kiss my baby girl whilst she still had her cannula in and was looking puzzled as to what was going on .. having no one to look after the dogs here I came home ..we are through all this constantly in touch with Sarah .. Tone got her there before 2pm and they were waiting for her .. Sarah had arrived just after him leaving home as soon as she knew what was happening .. More tests at Bristol showed her kidneys werenít functioning , she was now jaundiced and the rest of her little body was starting to struggle .. they wouldnít let Tony or Sarah stay after hours and their main hope was that she produce some urine .. Tone started the journey home with the vet saying she would update in a couple of hours but just as he was nearly home vet rang to say now she was having trouble breathing and so we had to make the agonising decision to let the vet help her to the bridge ...We still donít know what caused this , hoping to get some answers , and I would be grateful to not have loads of questions at this time , to Sarah either as we are all heartbroken beyond words , in shock and disbelief . We had our precious Violet for just two and a half days .. Iím not even sure she knew I was sheís new Mummy yet .
