IN Memory of Fluffy
It brings me sorrow to announce the passing away of our tiny baby Fluffy. Although he was only with us for a few weeks it has brought sadness to our family. My daughter of 7 years is the one that misses her the most. Since he passed away last week she still talks about him and at times cries. The reason we got the little one was as a sort of therapy for her, she has some problems and her shrink recommended a pet for her. Unfortunately this little one was born with intestinal problems and the vet couldn't do anything about it.
Our breeder has been very kind in paying for the vet costs and also has returned all the money.
My concern is if I should get her a new puppy or should I wait a few more months. I don't want her to go through this again.
Fluffy, rest in peace, wherever you are.
It's not the size of the dog in the fight, it's the size of the fight in the dog.

Gentle hugs to you and your daughter. It is very sad that your little Fluffy was so sick and passed away.
Why don't you talk with your daughter about whether she would like another puppy. Explain to her that it is okay to talk about Fluffy's dying and alright to grieve for him. This is a good opportunity to teach and support her about grieving. If you are unsure about what to say, please ask her therapist or your pastor.
It will empower her to be part of this important decision about when to get another puppy and she will be less apprehensive over losing another pup.
I am so happy that the breeder backed you 100% and covered your financial losses. I wish more breeders were like yours.

I am so sorry about your loss of Fluffy. And also completely understand how quickly you became attached. I only had my Half-Pint Yorkie (RIP) one week.
Your breeder sounds wonderful and that is so comforting to hear.
Follow your heart regarding when you think it's best to adopt another Yorkie pup....

So sorry to hear of Fluffy's passing. Yorkies are such wonderful little creatures, may I suggest you wait a week or two to remember Fluffy and let out all the emotions before looking for another Yorkie. Your breeder sounds like a great breeder, good luck in your next Yorkie search.
