Bambi: Update November 19, 2008
From Dallas Fort Worth Pug Rescuers in Houston

Bambi crossed Rainbow Bridge this morning peacefully in a special garden surrounded by flowers and love. Her cause of death was congestive heart failure due to her previous owners not administering heartworm prevention.

Bambi left us this morning after dealing with a bad heart that was so damaged by heartworm disease there was no predicting how long she would be with DFW Pug Rescue. She became one of our hospice cases and lived in a home with Pugs. She was sent to us via "Theresa and Charly" who thought she was a Pug and we headed out to pick her up. We thank both of them. Upon arrival to pick up this Pug, out came an elderly Boston Terrier, skinny, shaky but immediately kissed me on the face. We would never leave her behind. We put her on the website as our "Pug with a Boston accent."

Her prognosis was grim but DFW Pug Rescue never turns its head away. She lived over a year. It was such a privilege to be able to care for this little girl and actually watch her bounce back for a period of time. We knew her time was short. Bambi is now at peace with her Maker and playing with all of those who have crossed Rainbow Bridge before her. Her bed is empty tonight and there was one less bowl to fill and it hurts but in time it will lessen. God just made room for another one to come our way. We wait patiently.

what a sweet girl. at least DFWPR was able to give her a year of love and life that she never would have had. I'm sure she is eternally greatful to all the people over there who gave her the chance she deserved. Happy Trails, Bambi.

Awwww poor Bambi...what a sweetheart. I'm so glad there were people to take care of her. Why don't people give the medications that they need to survive? It's so sad.

Hard to lose someone you love anytime, but she looked so special. Thank God for DFW Pug Rescue (fosters & volunteers) for keeping her safe until it was time for God to come take her Home!
