We had a very upsetting telephone call from Mildura last night. We rescued two little border collie pups from a pound ten days ago. One had a grade 4 heart murmur. We were waiting to bring him to Melbourne to be assessed before desexing. Poor little guy died last night. We are trying to console ourselves that yes he was in a quarantine pen, but it was warm weather, he had his sibling with him, and a full tummy.
We are sorry Lancelot, it wasn't much of a life. But at least you had what we could give you in your brief time with us. We will make sure that Lucinda, your sibling, lives the life you should have had too.
Rescue breaks your heart.
