R.I.P. Laddie

I probably shouldn't be writing this right now since I am so upset, but I need to let everyon know tht Laddie passed away at aproximately 3:30 am November 22, 2012.
 Laddie was supposed to stay at the vet office for treatment for three days. I was called Wednesday morning by the office to inform me that he would be sent home later that day, but if he wasn't better by Friday morning to bring him back in (I have my own thoughts on why he was sent home when he had only been there one night with a holiday in-between the three nights...)
  When I went to pick Laddie up, he was lethargic, listless,you name it. I inquired about an IV since he still had the port in his arm,  but the tech said I wouldn't be giving any IV fluids. The veterinarian was not in the office so I couldn't talk to her. Was I mad?  Heck, yes!
   As Laddie settled into his crate at our home, he showed no interest in water, Gatorade, or his specially made rice/cottage cheese/chicken mixture (The tech said he had no interest in eating and only took one or two laps of water there. WHY send him home???).
   I went to bed at 11pm. I finally fell asleep around midnight, but still worried.  At 3 something a.m., I woke up to one of the dogs whining (it was Tess). I opened up he room so that she could lay on the couch. I checked in on Laddie and saw that he had had more diarrhea and he was cold. I knew then that even a trip to the ER was not going to help.
  I will cancel the Chipin account after the holiday. Thank you to all the wonderful, caring people who had texted and called.

Laddie is in ICU!! Chipin please

Laddie the 8 month old Dorgi is in need of financial and emotional assistance!  Laddie is a Dachshund/Corgi mix from a shelter (he survived the kill list there) and is now in ICU with parvovirus.  All the prayers and donations MUST help him pull through, as he is a survivor!! He is currently being treated at Seven Oaks Veterinary in Plymouth, IN over the Thanksgiving holiday.
Donations can be sent directly to Laddie of Dream Paws Rescue; c/oSeven Oaks Vetrinary Clinic; 2664 North Oak Dr.; Plymouth, IN 46511, OR click on the PayPal button, OR go to Chipin and donate there. 

Laddie has a special place in our heart as he is one of the perfect adoptable fur babies. He is good with cats, dogs, and all ages of children.

Please help Laddie's dream come true,

Valporaiso Adoption Event SUCCESS!

What a great time we had in Valpo this weekend (November 10 and 11)!  There were so many people looking at dogs, cats, and items to purchase.  I sure wish we had brought more money; we could have bought some bling collars for the dogs!

Even though we do not have Chancey in Indiana yet, so many people looked at her picture and took one of our cards to get more information on her. A short-haired medium sized German Shepherd or Collie mix, she ran from animal control in Ohio all over the highway!  She narrowly escaped a semi's wheels.  Luckily, our temporary foster in Ohio has her at her home now awaiting transport to Indiana this Saturday and her foster mom, Tiffany :-)

Looking for gifts??  Check out the items at TSC in Niles this Sunday being sold by the rescues.  There are many hand-made items.
