I just want to share the sad news that Poppe passed away this afternoon.


Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
Lay my head upon your breast
Throw your loving arms around me
I am weary let me rest

Seems the light is swiftly fading
Brighter scenes they do now show
I am standing by the river
Angels wait to take me home

Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
See the pain upon my brow
While I'll soon be with the angels
Fate has doomed my future now

Through the years you've always loved me
And my life you've tried to save
But now I shall slumber sweetly
In a deep and lonely grave

Kiss me mother kiss your darlin'
Lay my head upon your breast
Throw your loving arms around me
I am weary let me rest
I am weary let me rest.

All trough out this week I have found my self humming on this song. I think deep inside I always new the outcome. But the hope never left me.


RIP sweetiecutiepoppiloppi!!!


The veterinarian called my mum this morning and wanted to try one last operation on Poppe. They said that since he had made it this far after such a trauma that he might just against all odds make it. He was doing a little bit better and could endure anaesthesia once again. They wanted to open his wound and see what else there was to do since he was still in such bad shape after a week in intensive care. He has had a nurse assigned only to look after him all through out this time that has been posted by his bed to keep him calm and to make sure that he wasn’t in any pain. But sadly the wounds after the attack where more severe than they initially thought on his left side. The bites and wounds where so bad, the veterinarian said that the dog had not only bitten him, he had chewed on him so badly that there was no chance for the nerves, blood vessel and muscles to ever grow back and connect again the way they should. He would be paralyzed. We decide against amputating his leg, since this was no guarantee that he would ever walk again. And his liver was really bad after all the medications, anaesthesia and trauma. He had started hurling and throwing up in the way that often indicates that the end is near. We wanted to let him go with the dignity he deserved. Before the surgery we told the veterinarian that if they saw that there was nothing left to do to save him so that he would get a chance of a dignified life, to just let him sleep and not wake up. So that he could end his life peacefully and with out any sadness or stress. Poppe was happy, lively, always mowing crazy cuddly and super fun little caracter. He was such a great companion and with a personality filled with joy. He will be truly missed by us all.


The only thing that makes this feel a little bit better is that we always said that my dad would of loved Poppe and now they are together.


Once again thank you for everything, your prayers, good vibes and words of support and encouragement has made this painful time a little easier. Thank you!
