I know many religions does not think that dogs and all other animals have souls. But I wished they really do have. Their passing creates a hole in my heart and knowing that my imagination is real allow me to continue to love and care for all the other living things.
Til then, I will continue to remember these animals in my heart and care for care for those who pass through my life and need some love.

He is gone now but will never be gone from our memory.
Goodbye Abraham, I love you, you have been a gd boy.
Since we were there, we also visited Joshua who is near Abraham. Greedy fella was more interested in the spare ribs treats than us. This fella is also battling a failing heart and is depending on medicated to survive. Sigh....

Bye Sarah, due to your defensive nature, I never got a chance to touch and sayang you. I hope you are happy wherever you are now.
Today, as I was feeding the shelter dogs their fav. pork porridge. Abraham, one of the friendliest dogs there was looking weak and had no appetite. His legs are shaking and he fell several times. Poor dog looked so much in pain. We quickly finish the feeding and clean half of the kennels and rush Abraham to Mount Pleasant East before it closes for the day. He was so weak to walk, we had to carry him part of the way.
Did bld tests for him. Tested positive for heartworm and tick fever. He also has slight fever and fluid in his heart. Also did a X-ray to see how is his heart. Results shows that he is in advanced stage of heartworm and Vet gives the usual 2 options - to give 2 jabs, 24hrs apart to kill all the worms in the heart but Abraham have to be confined for about 4mths to keep calm. If not, because of the excitment, the dead worms may travel up to his lungs or brain which will kill him. Second option is to give monthly heartguard which will only kill of off the baby worms and wait for the adults to die off. This treatment takes about 2 yrs for all the worms to be gone. Vet says that many die during this treatment because their heart cannot take it.
As of now, Vet prescibed anti-diuretic to reduce the water in his heart so he can feel better and not pant so easily. Doxy meds for his tick fever. Jessie is overseas at the moment and will be back soon to decide his fate.
Much as we want to have a nice confined space for Abraham, unfortunately, we do not have a spare room or space. If you would kindly help to care for friendly and sweet Abraham for a few months. Pls let me know. We will be very very very grateful. All expenses will be reinbursed.
