Green boy at 12 days of age
Despite our 24 hour attendance and extraordinary vigilance, we lost our
beloved Green boy to suffocation. Sadly, we have since learned that 20% of litters suffer a catastrophic loss of this nature within two weeks of birth. In light of the circumstances of his death, we have chosen to remove most of the identifying ribbons from the other seven pups in an attempt to prevent the possibility of any other sources of tragedy from ever occuring and will do our best to consistently label each picture with the puppies original colored ribbon.
If tears could build a stairway, and memories a lane
I'd walk right up to heaven and bring you home again.
Our hearts are broken over the loss of our beautiful strong boy.
