Our miracle story is about “a little man in a fur coat” as named by our Veterinarian, Dr. Beth Jordan, Duraleigh Animal Hospital, Creedmoore Road in Raleigh, N.C. My Mother decided 11 years ago that she would like to have a Shih Tzu. She found one that happened to be the last of the litter. On the way home the first thing he did was kiss her face. We knew then that this was meant to be.
On his three month check- up, we found out that he had a fatal kidney disease and would probably not live beyond 9 months. We obtained multiple opinions and they were the same. Doctors said that they would not have an issue having him euthanized. The choice was easy in that we decided that whatever time he had remaining, that we would give him the most love and care he could possibly receive. That we have accomplished. He has given us in return all the unconditional love with joy that any family could possibly hope to have.
Dr. Jordan placed him on numerous “special protocols” that changed based on blood work and other tests, etc. Diets, I.V.’s, shots and various medications have been the norm.
HE IS NOW 11 YEARS OLD. Thanks to Dr. Jordan. HE IS THE JOY OF OUR LIVES AND IS SO SPECIAL IN SO MANY WAYS.
SO YES , MIRACLES DO HAPPEN and it did happen with our Dog named POOH BEAR.
