For the Brat Pack

If you hear a howl of sadness, it is for Durango who was fortunate enough to know the Five Happy Hounds, if for only a brief time. I am glad you got to know the love of a very special person. Good night, my friend.

No louder shrieks to pitying heaven are cast,
When husbands or lap-dogs breathe their last.

UPDATE: They are trying one more transfusion on the little guy. I hope it works!

What a beautiful puppy with such a terrible disease. At least he left knowing he was loved.

I was so SURE this was going to turn out right. Usually I don't despair so at being wrong.

Totally, brutally unfair. J lost a dog to parvo once (also a rescue) and it is such a terrible disease. I'm glad that Durango at least got to enjoy some affection and love before he had to go. I wish his pack well.

Wally, That was really lovely. This is the first I've heard that Durango didn't make it. Poor Maryann and Brats. I'm sure your words are a great comfort to her.

Oh, Wally.

We're sending comforting goob smooches to Mary Ann & the rest of the brats. They've been having a hard couple of months.

Thanks so much for keeping us posted. I'm certain Durango knew how loved he was!

Run like the wind, little buddy!

Goober love,

Maryann is a star with her dogs, and I'm sure Durango realised that too. Poor little one.
