They are our child, our soul mates, our fur covered friends, our loved ones,
OUR EQUALS any person that can't comprehend that is someone that I don't
want to know or be around. I love each and every one past, present and
future. When rumble had his seizure in front of me I PANICED after the
seizure I grabbed him jumped in my car and drove a 20 minutes drive in 6
minutes I had 2 police officers chasing me when I came tires sqealing into
the vet office. I ran intothe vets office faster than I have ever moved in
my life I was in a ball of tears. It took the vet and the police to calm me
down enough to tell them what happened. I kept telling my vet who is a dear
friend and life long family friend. Please don't let him die on me and I am
not putting him to sleep. My fiend had never seen me like this and thought
someone had hurt my family and only rumble survived. The police were luckly
animals lovers one a k9 unit they let me off with a warning and stayed here
till we found out what was wrong
We first had him on Phenobarbital but Rumble is allergic and was literally
ripping his face off it almost killed him. Now I have to wory about his
liver and kidneys and doing my best to keep him off a steriods other than
the depo shot.
