Sadly once again we have lost a member of the pack to poisoning (you may remember when we lost Taz the cat). Tapa was out for a walk with the pack on Friday 20th December and we can only think that he picked something up somewhere along the way. On Saturday he was not well, nothing to suggest he had eaten poison, just not well. Over night he deteriorated very quickly and started to vomit blood. The vet arrived and gave him a shot, he was not hopeful. He said to call him back if he did not improve by 8.30pm. Tapa actually went blind from the toxin, but he did pick up a little and went outside to sit in the sun for a while. Unfortunately after that he went down hill big time. He was so very cold, the poison was stopping the body from regulating it's temperature and he gave us the sign that it was time and enough was enough. The hu'parents called the vet and he agreed and he helped Tapa make his journey to the rainbow bridge.
So our feisty scruffy little Tapa is, we are sure, causing all sorts of trouble at the rainbow bridge. We miss the little guy and still can't understand the use of poison.

Pat Anderson: Still so sad about Tapa, smaller dogs are appealing to me more and more and I love the Scruffy little Tapa types now but oh my word he was such a CUTE !!!!!!!!!!!!!! puppy . I wish people would think twice about using any poison but to just leave it lying around, that is murderously stupid - I apologise for some of mankind Tapa but I know you will be creating havoc now and will have others members of the pack that have gone before looking after you XXXX <3
