April was on a transport to another rescue during the recent snow storms that hit south Texas.  We were contacted when she started having puppies and the rescue receiving her did not have indoor housing for her.  Unfortunately mom and broke with a really bad upper respiratory infection when her puppies were less than a week old.  Within a week her puppies started showing signs of the infection.  Unfortunately they were too young to medicate with anything that didn't go through mom's milk.  The puppies started dying 1 by 1.  When the 4 surviving puppies reached 4 weeks, we attempted to give liquid meds, but they still failed to get better.  We lost the entire litter within their first 5 weeks of life. 

April was beside herself.  She was a great mom who was frantically looking for her babies.  We would take her for walks and spend extra time with her.  She finally took matters into her own hands and decided to become roommates with Laura, the dog next to her that was on the transport and also lost her puppies. They have been consoling each other and keeping each other company.  April and Laura are both healthy and are beautiful dogs. April is very sweet just a little shy. She is learning to play with toys too.
