Our Beloved Dog Thumper Passed Away

Thumper
Our beloved labradoole Thumper as a puppy and full grown.

Our grief deepens with another loss. This time of our beloved labradoodle Thumper. Our newly adult son grew up with him. We got Thumper when our son was six. Thumper would’ve been twelve this month.

Unfortunately, our younger poodle Coco is showing similar symptoms. Our next door neighbor said she found eight dead rats in her backyard. Apparently, someone is poisoning rodents. Not good.

We back up to a hillside filled with rabbits and rats. Predatory animals, including mountain lions, coyotes, pet dogs and domestic cats, eat poisoned rodents and die.

Trap rodents. Don’t poison them.

      Coco’s recovered thanks to veterinarian prescribing vitamin K.

    Oh, how horrible!! He was so cute. We had a little dog like that who lived long but when she died I couldn’t face getting another dog. So sorry, too, it is loss after loss for you right now. Sometimes it happens that way. My heart goes out to you. xx ellen

      He was a big dog. They don’t live as long. Just getting up and laying down harder on his body due to basic physics. Our smaller and younger standard poodle seems to be doing better now. The vet prescribed vitamin K to counteract anticoagulant in rat poison. Could be, Coco’s grieving the loss of his close buddy.
