    I hate that you had to find us under such terrible conditions. I hope you little Sammy gets better real quick. I know what it is like to watch a young pup cling to their life. It is so hard knowing you are not able to do anything. My prayers go to you and Sammy. Please keep us updated.

    Always with me

    We called for an update this evening and he's improved a bit. I had my bf call and ask them to put a pillow in the oxygen tank so that he could rest his head on it. When we went to visit this afternoon he wasn't able to fall asleep, because laying down made it harder for him to breathe. He was trying to sleep sitting up but it just wasn't working too well. Hopefully he'll get lots of good sleep tonight and the meds will start working.

    Oh no. I'm so sorry you're going thru this. My heart aches for you and your family. It's so hard when they are young and the small trachea doesn't help. I went thru the same thing but not with a good end, but my puppy was the runt of the litter. But this is little Sammy and I will pray very hard for him. Once he gets well you'll have to watch and keep him at a good weight with a good food. That's good that your breeder has her own nebulizer and oxygen tank and I hope it will help him. I know how hard it is. These bulldogs are so darn loveable it's impossible not to feel such a total attachment to them. Take care of yourself too cause Sammy is going to want to catch up on all those belly rubs and smooches he's been missing.::

    Well, we picked Samson up from the vet this afternoon. We went there knowing that we might end up leaving him if he didn't look good enough to transport, but he looked SO much better today. The vet felt more comfortable today allowing him to leave, even though they did advise that he should stay. We called the breeder, and we made the two hour drive to her house as her intention is to care for him until she feels he's well enough to come home (she has a nebulizer, an oxygen tank and chamber.) The vets biggest concern was that he didn't have an appetite, within 10 minutes the breeder was able to get him to eat. I feel SOOOOO much better about where he's at now. They are going to be getting up every two hours to give him a nebulizer treatment (her husbands amazing and is sharing in the task.) He was taken out of the oxygen chamber earlier this morning, so they'll be only be giving him a small amount of oxygen during the nebulizer treatments. We're going to go and see him tomorrow afternoon, hopefully I have even better news to report.

    This is very good news. You're such a good mommy. I was thinking of your baby all day and wishing for his illness to leave him. I'll keep up the good vibes till he is back home. Baby steps as they say.

    I think you made a good choice bringing Sam to your breeder. Sounds like they have much exp with this, as many good breeders do. A lot of very young pups start to "fade" and a good breeder can turn them around using these things. Paws crossed and more prayers for you to bring your puppy home in good health!
