Last night DROH'S sweet girl Champagne crossed the bridge. We fought very hard to save her but the distemper won in the end. She passed away last night in the arms of her foster Mom,
Suzanne, and she is devastated. She had never lost a foster before. All of DROH is saddened by this loss. Suzanne said she looked so sweet and peaceful, almost like she was sleeping at the end.
We are thankful that her babies appear to be well and being cared for by fosters that will shower them with love and that they will have a better chance in life than their mother did.

There are guardian angels all around us and now there is a Dachshund with angel wings among them......RIP sweet girl.

I'm sure one of the 9-11 vikhtims wanted a sweet pup of their own...

So sad to hear this news, but so glad that this sweet girl had loving arms around her to help her on her trip, and we know that the life she has now will be a really good one.

Also glad to hear that her babies have places that will care for them and give them a good chance in this world. Corgi hugs... OC

Bye little one. At least you had some good times in your foster home to take with you over the bridge.

I am so sorry at the passing of Champagne. I was just thinking that at least she wasn't alone, she passed over in loving arms and I am sure she took that love with her across the rainbow bridge.
