We're terribly saddened by this news also. Digby has been through so much with his family, and Wilf has been his constant companion. They're going to miss him terribly. Let's hope there's a last minute miracle for him.

we didn't ever get to know Digby, but we have been over to his bloggy a couple of times. he is a tough little fellow and we are still hoping that he will make a recovery...

our mom's bird vet told her one time that "where there is life, there is hope". she has always remembered that. it's ironic that the vet told her that right before the bird died.

Dearest Asta,
I came over yesterday to read your post, having been to Digby's, but forgot to leave a calling card that I'd been here. You woofed some wonderful, endearing words about poor, sweet Digby - you are an angel, I think, Asta. It's furry sad to think we pups could get so sick from ticks - I'm around them all the time and it's sort of scary, cause like Digby, I takes medicines for those nasty things. But then I swim and it probably comes off. Who knows, but we sure are thinking a lot about some sick friends right now who we all know. Bless you, Asta.
Big Hugs xoxoxo

Sissy Asta... we really have to blame our pawrents, we've so so so behind and we didn't get a chance to meet this little darling friend, Digby. Thank you so much for your tribute. We're sure one day we all meet and smile together.

ps: We finally had a chance to try MOMO wine in real life. Please come by and have a look at the bottles we got. :) :) Cheers for our DWB friends!!

Dear Asta,
I lost my dog to a tick borne infection too. It was an emotional roller coaster ride for me in the six months that we battled the disease. My dog's blood count would rise and fall week after week, despite the high doses of steriods, two blood transfusions, medications and surgery...

I never opted for euthanasia. I was desperate for him to live that at one point I asked God to give me his illness instead. One night, exhausted from another hospital visit, i realized how tired I was.

That was it, I finally acknowledged that I was tired of fighting. The following day, I got a call that my beloved dog had passed away.

Even to this day, I still cry when I remember him. He fought so hard because he wanted to stay, to make me happy, and it was only when I finally gave up, that he gave up too.

Our thoughts are with Digby's family
