Thanks everyone..We first decided to cremate him and keep the ashes but the vet told me that there would be a slightly chance for us to keep the ashes and that he wouldn't be cremated right away..

We changed our minds and decided to bury him in our breeder's house..It was a quite a day...

When I saw him he seemed like he was sleeping, this is unbelievable, everything happened so fast frown

It is, I was the one who got the call, they were asking for my mom, and when they told me that, he had died, I felt nothing for a few seconds I just said "okay, I'll let her know" when I hung up, I was back in the reality, I had to tell my sister and call my parents because they had left to buy something and then they were going to me pick me up to go to the vet to see him..

It was in fact an emotional shock for my sister, she's deaf so yesterday she didn't hear how serious it was but I had hopes and didn't tell her everything..

Helios wasn't really close to him, but Jessie was really close to my 9YO pekingese and so was she. When We got jessie this morning we went to pick up helios so that he could come with us to Jessie's breeder and as soon as he got in the car I saw him fetching, looking for that "smell" (Jessie)..

And this morning while I was waiting for the vet I saw this Yorkshire that really looked like him.. frown

It's going to be really difficult for awhile I would predict, shock and grief for both human and canine. Even worse when you consider the vet's stand on this since it shakes your confidence in so many things.


Are you going to have your pekingese tested now? I can see how the little dogs, being together longer and also being more similar, would be so bonded.

Yes we're going to have both of them tested, we've 2 9YO pekingese and the male was already treated with doxy 1-2 years ago, we've always kept an eye on him since he went through chemo thanks to Cancer.. He has lived 2-3 years since then smile I remember this vet who said he Wouldn't make it, that he had no chance, and yet he's still here, with us.

Thanks Helios. With all the tick disease around, I was a bit curious if it was something like lymphoma, since they seem to be related.

Nice to hear he made it through the chemo. So long ago smile

WTH lisa.. My mom is ATM with my dad at the clinic (nothing serious) and she showed jessie's results to my dad's doctor and she sent me a text saying that the doctor told her that basing on the the results, it shows that he had lepto's disease.

Okay, If I Recall, everything started this saturday when he was seriously fetching a Rat under our car ( He only goes nuts fetching when It's a rat), I started the thread in the other forum thinking that perhaps he drank soil BUT what If It was contaminated with urine??

I just read that it may result in chronic liver and kidney disease.

"During the first 4-12 days following infection with Leptospira, the dog may experience sudden symptoms of fever (103-105oF), depression, vomiting, loss of appetite, conjunctivitis, and generalized pain. Within 2 days of the onset of these primary symptoms, body temperature may drop suddenly and there may be a noticeable increase in thirst. A definite change in the color of the dog's urine and/or jaundice (icterus) is often noticed and may be the only indication of disease. Color intensity of the urine may vary from lemon to deep orange. Additionally, frequent urination and subsequent dehydration (uremia) are consistent with invasion of the kidney tubule cells by the Leptospira organism and usually present within a few days of the primary symptoms. In advanced cases of infection, profound depression, difficulty breathing, muscular tremors, bloody vomitus and feces are often observed as the infection progresses to include the liver, gastrointestinal system and other organs. Course and severity of the disease is often dependent upon the serovar responsible for the infection. Serovars associated with liver infection and symptoms of urine discoloration and/or jaundice (icterus), elevation of liver enzymes, and gastrointestinal symptoms include L. icterohaemorrhagiae and grippotyphosa. The serovar grippotyphosa is also associated with symptoms of renal failure as is the serovar pomona."

The past sunday he was fine, kind of OFF that night but didn't think it was something serious because we went for a walk with helios and he seemed to be fine, he even ate that night. Monday he was definitely not okay, he didn't want to walk, he didn't want to eat that's when we took him to the vet and the vet thot it was colitis, that night he vomited a meal (saturday's meal we believed) then tuesday he vomited again when we were about to leave to the clinic to do the bloodtest done, when we got there his body temperature droppred and the vet told us to leave him there to hydrate him..

What If it was Lepto??:S
