We cannot save them all - some are just too young to fight
These beautiful puppies were a litter we took in when they were extremely young, eyes not yet opened to the world. Sadly one by one we lost them, despite doing anything and everything in our power to help these puppies survive, they were slowly taken away by Distemper. Mama lost her whole litter. We lost five pieces of our heart as they crossed the rainbow bridge. Never forgotten, their short lives were filled with love.

Through Their Eyes.
It's so hard and so cold on this concrete floor
I'm desperately straining to see the door
But when it opens the noise is oh so loud
I try to stay quiet and stand up proud
I can smell their scent, I can hear a voice
Something about there isn't much choice
I can hear the others begging "Please pick me!"
But I was taught well and sit patiently
Now they're in front of me, eyes open wide
I smile at them and invite them inside
But they back away and quickly move on
I hear the door slam, it's quiet, they're gone
Well it soon will be supper and here comes my friend
He says I'm a "good boy, but it's come to the end"
He's rubbing me kindly but won't look in my eyes
When I kiss him and love him I think I hear cries
I'm going for a walk but I feel somethings wrong
My good friend keeps telling me I must be strong
But we don't go outside, we go into a room
It smells strange, I am scared and it feels full of doom
My friend picks me up and puts me down on the bed
He hugs me and whispers, I don't hear what he said
But I shouldn't be scared, it's an injection, a shot
But when I look at their faces I know that's not what I got
I feel tired and sleepy, somethings not right
I don't want to sleep, I don't want to, I fight!
My friend holds me tightly he says it's okay
But I don't understand why I couldn't stay.
