      Rest easy baby Zach

      A few weeks ago I posted about the sick little guy that my husband brought home. Sadly he did not make it. Zach lost his battle with what we now know was distemper. He fought through the gastric and respiratory phase and appeared to begin to recover but unfortunately the neuro phase killed him. He developed a myoclonic twitch and then he had one single deadly seizure on Monday afternoon. He was barely hanging on and I made the decision to end his suffering completely and had him euthanized. Unfortunately his fate was determined long before my husband tried to save him.

      My heart is broken, I cant wrap my head around this, he was just a baby, so young, so innocent. If only my love could have saved him

      I am grateful that I could love the little sweetie for 24 days, he had a lot of good days and for 24 days he was showered with intense love and attention. He even got to experience Mcdonalds drive thru and get a few french fries and icecream.

      Run free sweet monkey boy. I will always cherish our short time together. I love you with all my heart and I will see you again someday.

      I do not wish distemper on my worst enemy, I have never experienced something so devastating. Karma will come to whomever bred these babies and then took no responsibilty for there precious lives

      I'm so incredibly sorry to hear this. Zach's life ended far too soon, but I'm glad that his last month was filled with so much love.

      Poor little baby Zach. I'm sorry you had to go through that but I choose to think Zach thanks you for your love and showing it to him, along with mercy.

      Distemper is horrible. It can resemble dumb rabies in wildlife I've seen it in. It's awful.
