It was a pleasure speaking with you the other day. Once again you clearly demonstrate your passion for all bulldogs. If it were up to me I would write a book about this nightmare thanks to you with a happy ending.
In January of 2010 we purchased a beautiful baby bulldog his name is Butters. We decided to purchase a puppy as our beloved Max just turned 9 yrs old and he would have been a fantastic role model for our Butters. What a great addition to our family. Unexpectedly, on February 5th 2010 we had to put Max to sleep due to spleen cancer. About a week later Butters became ill and was having difficulty breathing. We rushed him to our veterinarian (she advised we should put the pup to sleep) where he was treated and referred to a specialist. After 3 days in the hospital the specialist advised us that Butters would not survive diagnosing him with a hypoplastic treachea and we should put him to sleep. We melted —- there was no way we could do this again. It was not that simple we had hope for this beautiful pup. He was not ready to give up and neither were we.
My husband started researching the diagnosis and found your website. You were there to listen, understand and help when all veterinarians we saw about 8 total were not. Butters was treatable with your help from many miles away. Thanks to you a person whom we have never met from whom we did not purchase a pup truly wore his heart on his sleeve. You did not give up hope you were there every time we needed you. Within a few weeks our pup was back to his happy and healthy self. Thanks to you Butters is a big part of our family and I can’t imagine what life would be like without him. Thank you for all of your help you are an extraordinary person. I don’t think we could ever repay you for what you have given us. I do know when it is time to get another pup I will be contacting you. Thanks for staying in touch.
