Unfortunately this will be a bit of a sad post today.
Our sweet, gentle, kind, loving, loyal, and beloved Germany Shepherd, Rossy was rushed to emergency hospital last night for GDV. GDV or Gastric Dilatation Volvulus is what happened to Marley if you’ve ever watched the movie Marley & Me. It almost killed him.
Rossy’s stomach was so bloated. He could barely walk. His breaths were shallow. A surgeon was called in to perform emergency surgery on him to untwist his stomach.
Many of you loyal Mockeri readers know about our beloved Rossy, who is a part of our family. You might also know a bit about the rough patch we’ve been through with our 6 month old daughter Aria. Well, Rossy has been our rock throughout. He’s helped her, helped us, been patient, a companion and cheered us up on a bad day. Aria and Rossy share a special bond. He is the only one that lights her up and makes her laugh and giggle when she’s not well. Now it’s our turn to support him.
This is an expense we obviously had no question to pay, but also one we weren’t prepared for. If there are any dog-loving friends out there who would love to contribute to Rossy’s emergency surgery fund, we would be eternally grateful.
