Two years later, Tom's dog had another litter of puppies, and of course, we needed another puppy. We had lots of discussion trying to think of a name for the second female, and since, at that time, she looked like a mini version of Brees, she was called Mini Brees, or just Mini.
Last year, Mini had a little health issue when I found her down in the barn, and unable to get up. We had her checked at our vet, and, seeing nothing broken, we were referred to an acupuncture/chiropractic veterinarian in a nearby
They loved Mini at the clinic, and took such good care of her. They made a fuss over her and loved on her at each visit, as if she was their own dog.
The treatments helped, and after some resting time at home, she was up and about again.
She looked quite different!
Later that day, we learned that she was also in severe kidney failure. Poor old girl.
Rest in peace, Mini. We'll miss you. We loved you.
All things bright and beautiful,
All creatures great and small.
All things wise and wonderful,
The Lord God made them all.
