June 26 – August 17, 2009
Alexis crossed the Rainbow Bridge in the arms of her foster parents when the beautiful one year old lost her battle with Distemper. She was given her shots at the shelter which made the virus difficult to confirm. Her upper respiratory infection and pneumonia were treated and she was a model patient taking all her meds and loving the constant attention and cuddling. Alexis did so well we were convinced she would be in the small percentage of those that survive but the relentless virus went to her brain. Our hopes of giving Alexis the loving life she deserved were not fulfilled. We will always think of Alexis running through the fields and streams across the Rainbow Bridge with no coughing or fevers and enjoying her friends, our beloved pets that live there.
