Today we had to say goodbye to a puppy, it was so hard. I had noticed that Pink girl seemed to be bumping into things and had an odd look in her eye. Her skull was also slightly domed. My vet confirmed what I had already suspected, she had hydrocephalus, a condition in which fluid builds up in the skull causing blindness and other neurological impairments. I consulted with my vet and a veterinary neurologist at UGA, Pink's outlook was grim and potentially painful. I had to make the very tough decision to let her go. This little girl had known nothing but love, warmth, and a full tummy her entire short life; and that was all I wanted her to know. So, now there are nine. I wanted to laugh tonight so I purposely took pictures of them when they were at their absolute nastiest-right after eating. I assure you they clean up nicely!

Tonight we watched them playing and interacting with each other. They are so cute!
