Poor girlie. I'm just so happy she's landed with someone who is giving her proper care.

Here's hoping she's on the mend; I know she's getting the best care you can give her. I'll be thinking of you guys.

Thank you for all your well-wishes, folks! We're nearing about $1k in vet bills so I also hope this gets resolved soon, for both Tiki's comfort and for my poor bank account!!

Tiki's visit went fairly well today! She is not quite in the clear but the infection pooling in her lungs is lessened by about half. They did warn me that she may have some permanent scarring on her lungs and nasal cavity from the long time she's had this untreated infection, so she may always make some weird respiratory noises, but she IS improving. Not quite the answer we wanted with the pneumonia being so stubborn, but a better answer than no improvement at all. She was given another antibiotic shot as well as more of the meds she's already on, since that seems to be working well for her.

She's also gained half a pound total this week which is a huge improvement on her weight! She's right at 5lbs 4oz which is finally a higher weight than she was at when I first rescued her (5lbs, 2oz). We're thinking somewhere between 5.5-6lbs is the final adult weight we're shooting for, at this point. She's naturally starting to cut back on some of the food she's eating- still a whole 13oz can plus 1/8lb in Freshpet- so soon it'll be time for me to start cutting back on the calorie intake and get her weight to plateau instead of turning her into a blimp.

Today she was a little spitfire at the vet office which her vet was very happy to see. As said before, with knowing her personality was somewhat subdued due to illness, it's good to see a puppy like her doing better and having fun even if she turns into a little demon in the process

It's been a difficult several months with Tiki's health all over the place, but I must make a sad update. It's been a lot to deal with, especially with covid going, and honestly posting here has been one of the last things on my mind.

Those who follow my FB are familiar with Tiki's health struggles the past while, but for those on here who are not... Tiki had an autoimmune issue where she was unable to fight of disease and had barely any immune system whatsoever. She had antibiotic-resistant bacteria in her lungs, and a malformation within her sinus preventing her from draining mucous and bacteria and thus resulting in continued aspirations and, as a result, continued infections. She also very likely had hydrocephalus.

She crashed hard April 1st during a procedure to try and relieve some of the symptoms, and we determined it was not something she could ever recover from, and so we said goodbye. At the time she was covered in growing lesions that were either demodex or ringworm, skin turning bright yellow, and a fever of 105F and climbing. Completely delirious, unaware of where she was and unable to hold her head up. She had been coherent, bright, and perky when I dropped her off an hour prior.

To be quite honest I'm still waiting for someone to say "April Fools!" and hand her back to me, alive and well. Logically, I know that is not happening.

It's difficult without her spirit and presence here. One gets used to a tiny firecracker that demands all the attention. Her loss is felt by everyone in the house. All the roommates, all the dogs.

I just want her back. I don't care about the rest.

It's so very sad about Tiki. And yet, I'm so glad she had you to care for her, to love her, and to make decisions in her best interest.

Oh, I am so sorry. It's those little ones that you put so much energy and care into that just tear your heart out when it's time to say goodbye.

Run free, little one.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I had missed this thread before, and was thinking that for a little dog, she was about the cutest I've ever seen. How sad that she had so many problems, but I'm glad she had you to spend her last months with.
