Praying she will be ok. Roxie has a small open fontanall and does not have hydrocephalus. My vet said you can usually tell by the sahpe of the head and the eye set.

Linda, I have so many questions for you...
Was your girl diagnosed with Hydrocephalus?
Does your girl take Medications?
Does your little girl have any "Learning Problems" or is she "Slower"?
I've read that 75% of them don't "House Train" Is this true with your girl?
How is her health otherwise?
Thank you for sending your reply!
I'm so worried about her... that I'm just beside my self! I can't think of anything but her.

Diana, I am so sorry to hear that Leilani is having this health problem. I know how much you have been waiting and planning for this little girl to come into your life. It sounds like you have found a wonderful breeder, though. I am sure that whatever path is taken for Leilani, that God will be there all the way with her. I do believe that things happen for a reason and that something positive will come out of this. I will keep you, Leilani and the breeder in my prayers for a positive outcome. Hang in there, girl. I personally know how hard it is to love and become so attached to a puppy even before you get them home, only then to start out with a serious health problem form the beginning. Please keep us updated. {{{{{BIG HUG}}}}

Unlove My Baby Has Passed Away!

It wasn't going to be a good day to make the long drive to her house for a visit. So I stayed up almost all night... I have insomnia... and this wasn't helping. I slept in late and jumped into the shower... and this is when the called came in. It was my Breeder's on the phone.

They called to let me know what was going on with Ms. LeiLani. You see LeiLani is not putting on weight like her other three brothers and her Vet said, "She needs to see a specialist". A Neurologist needs to look at her skull and her brain". They have an appointment for Wednesday.

My breeder's thought that something was starting to feel "Not Right" with her. This is why she didn't want me to come and see her yet. She has been eating, but she just isn't putting on weight like her 3 brothers are. She is still very... very... small! The "Smallest" she has ever had! This saddens all of us.

They think that her "Soft Spot" on her head is not "Closing or forming correctly". The Vet also suspects that she might have "Water on her Brain". She gave me some technical names, but seeing that I was dripping wet from the shower... I just didn't get to write it down.
What does all of this mean??? I'm not sure... I don't know!!!

I've been so upset all day that I just crawled back into bed and went back to sleep. I was hoping it was a dream... but I woke up... and it was not.

I have looked at three litters before her and research... and research as much as I could about Yorkies. I've been looking for her for 1-1/2 yrs for her. I didn't feel comfortable with any of the other "So Called Breeder's" that I had met in the past.
So when I found this one I know she was the one. She was very nice and took me into her life to teach me. I've met with her at Dog Show were she taught me what was going on.
She was waiting on one of her Champion dogs to delivery and I was so excited. She had one other person that wanted a show quality dog but didn't care if she had a boy or a girl. So when only one girl was born she decided on a boy and I got the girl. Yeah! I was sooo excited I told everyone... She had a girl... She had a girl!

You see I'm 39 years old and can't have children of my own. I start early menopause just over a year ago and I have always wanted my own child... especially a little girl. I purchased a lot of stuff for her. Some thing's before I even met my Breeder's. I have clothes, leashes, potty stuff, bowels, collars, beds, crates, purse bags, you name it I have it! I even just had a delivery to my house today of stuff for her. All I could do was just cry.
She was going to be my first Yorkie. I'm Soooo Sad!
I'm trying my hardest to fight back my tears!

BUT COULDN'T!

My boy kitty Jasper just came up to me and sat next to me on the arm of the couch.
He reached out his paw and touched my shoulder.... and I lost it! I just cried... and cried... I'm so sad!




I'm back now ~ I think I needed that!

What if she's not okay? Has this happened to anyone else? Is this normal in smaller Yorkies?
Will this go away with medication?
Should she be put to sleep? The Vet spoke with them about this. It's not fair for little LeiLani to be going through this!

Last night I received an email from my Wonderful Breeder's and they needed to inform me, that LeiLani had a very... very... bad couple of days since they took her to Vets office. She was no longer eating or drinking and just cried as if she was in pain. They were so upset that they could not call me on the telephone. They recently lost their teenage son to Cancer and this loss brought back some feelings of their son.

So Last night they took her back to the Vets Office (Monday night) and at 6pm my little Ms. LeiLani had passed away! The Vet had decided that she was in a down world spiral and that she would not recover from it. So they took the time to say, Goodbye and gave her back to the Angels. She is finally peaceful.
I was so sad I was inconsolable for hours last night. I cried myself asleep... and finally around 3am passed out. My heart is very broken.
It will take me some time to heal, but I know that in order for me to love another one... I need to say goodbye to her. I want to thank each and everyone of you, who sent me messages about her illness. I learned a lot about this illness and now I know what to look for next time. I personally heal through talking... and I thank you for helping me to heal. Goodbye my little girl!

I am so very sorry for your loss. Very often severely affected puppies do not survive. LeiLani isn't suffering any more...

I am so very sorry for your loss. Just think in your mind that this baby
is not feeling pain anymore. I feel so bad for the breeder as well.

I'm so so sorry Diana~ for you and the breeders. It must have been terrible to know she was in discomfort and not be able to do anything for her. But she's with the angels now and nothing can hurt her anymore. God must have needed a Yorkie for some little child who just arrived, so they both have someone to love. Warm and comforting thoughts~ Seana, Max and Madison
