|Autumn Royal Miracle of
|Fiddler was born a week early on Februray 11, 2013 by emergancy Csection, and was the
only survivor of his very beautiful litter. He is out of Melody's 'Showtunes Litter', sired
by CH Danewoods Slice of Heaven CGC RN.
During his 2nd week of life, Fiddler unfortunately suffered from a severe eye infection
in 1 eye as a complication of his Csection birth. Sadly, the vision was lost. At 4 months
old, we discovered the infection had also wrecked havoc with his kidneys. He officially
became a CRF Dog (Chronic Renal Failure). We were told he wouldn't live much passed
the age of 6 mo. He thrived. At 9 mo old, he suffered a major set back, went off food,
suffered GI issues.... his numbers skyrocketed, with Creat over 6! He was given days to
live. He thrived. He thrived passed his birthday, passed Spring, and all through
Summer, until September of 2014, when he once again went off food. His GI suffered a
major blow, with vomiting, diarrhea, and upset. After a month of struggles, just as he
showed signs of turning around, his stomach gave up the fight and bloated and twisted.
He had little to no chance of surviving bloat surgery and recovery on less than 10%
kidney function and still in the bouts of a major down swing. We chose to peacefully
end his fight. Fiddler went to sleep for the last time on September 8, 2014, in my
arms....3 days shy of his 19 month birthday.
Fiddler was truly a miracle of life, constantly defying all odds and doing the impossible.
He loved life more than any soul I have ever known. He embraced each and every day
with the utmost enthusiasm. He was an inspiration to a great many, many people,
offering hope of the impossible. He touched so many lives, including my own, with his
zest for life, brightening every day with his glorious light. And that is his legacy.
That was his ultimate miracle.
With much love, until we meet at the bridge....
