Frida's news 12/2011
Our 14-year-old Frida (B. Lucky Coin) has recovered well after the operation in which the small tumours in her both eyelids were removed. In advance the old lady was thoroughly examined because of her age and the risk of narcosis. Frida's laboratory results were good and her heart was okay so she was successfully operated. She has been a nice patient and doesn't even mind the collar.

Topi 17.08.2010 - 11.04.2011
Today we said goodbye to Topi (It's Sir Topi Vom Boyer Moor). Our sweet and brave little boy passed away beautifully and quietly and now he is resting in peace. The battle with the terrible hereditary heart defect TVD (tricuspid valve dysplasia) is over.

Topi's short life with us was good and happy. The glad and active puppy liked to learn new things and he enjoyed many hobbies. Topi lived here and now without knowing his future and destiny. For us owners the time from the diagnosis to the farewell was hard as we knew every moment that the end was getting closer.

Thank you dear Topi for these valuable months we had together. You live in our hearts and you are always with us. Some day we will meet again.

Topi's sad news 12/2010
Topi (It's Sir Topi Vom Boyer Moor) was vaccinated 21.12.2010 and the veterinarian heard heart murmur. We visited 28.12.2010 a cardiologist, who examined the puppy thoroughly by auscultation and heart ultrasound. We got very sad news. Topi has a severe hereditary heart defect TVD (tricuspid valve dysplasia). Dilatation of the right side is grave, also the leakage is massive. Topi's prognosis is poor and his life time expectation is short. Medical therapy can ease the life, but there is no treatment for TVD, the final result is always death.

At the time Topi is a happy and active puppy running and playing without showing any signs of TVD. It is so hard to understand and accept, that he is going to die. Why did this happen to our lovely little boy, who means so much to us? We are shocked and we have been crying a lot, this is like the worst nightmare.

We will make the rest of Topi's short life as normal, good and happy as it has been before this horrible tragedy. We will spend nice time together and do all those things he loves. When the signs of TVD appear, we will contact the cardiologist. All decisions will be made for Topi's best. We won't let him suffer and he will enjoy his life to the last moment as our brave and cherished little boy.

We have informed Topi's breeder so that she can alert owners of littermates and sire.

There are no words for our pain and sorrow.
