found a new home!
Plenty of my friends are looking
for one too. Find a pet to adopt.
I am already neutered and up to date with shots.
It is with a broken heart that I let you all know that
my sweet little Griffin crossed Rainbow Bridge on
Wednesday October 18, 2006. Griffin had taken a turn
for the worst and was in heart failure. It just
wouldn't have been fair to keep him going so the
decision was made to send him home peacefully with the
help of my vet, Dr. Effie. Poor Griffin was so tired
and so ready to be at peace. He past away cradled in
my arms about 5 to 7 minutes after Dr. Effie gave him
the sedative injection. She never had to administer
the euthanasia injection. We feel that Griffin was
older than what is mentioned on his profile.
I just couldn't bring myself to update his bio at the
time but I want to thank each and every one of you for
your warm and caring thoughts, prayers and donations.
Godspeed to my beautiful little angel, until we meet
UPDATE: 10-05-06 Sadly, Griffin is in renal failure. Can you help with a small donation???
In the last 24 hours Griffin had become very picky about wanting to eat his food. An appointment was made to see his vet today and after a thorough examination, blood work and urinalysis I was given the sad news that Griffin is in renal failure. As if that wasn't heartbreaking enough for the day, it was also discovered that since his last visit, Griffin has developed a heart murmur. Griffin is now in the hospital on an IV and antibiotics. He will definitely be there for a few days and we will gladly update you on his progress as we get more information.
FOSTERED IN TEXAS!! Welcome to the Yorkie Kingdom!!!!! Princess Carly would like to introduce to you one of the "regulars" here at the castle and his name is Griffin! Griffin is a senior but don't let that stop you from considering giving him that fur-ever loving home because honestly, Griffin is a really cool senior at that. Even though he's turned out to be quite the grumpy little fella in his old age we really want to think that he was a popular guy in his younger days. Griffin is absolutely adorable but he definitely does not like to be rushed into anything. Griffin is extremely mellow and minds his own business, takes his time when he goes out to potty and basically, doesn't have a care in the world..... just make sure you don't rush him into doing anything! As a matter of fact, I don't think he would complain if the sun decided not to come up one morning, just as long as he gets his meals and treats and that no one bothers him while he sleeps. He even prefers eating away from the other princesses and furry knights. Another thing about Griffin is that he does not like to be touched by any of the other Princesses or Furry Knights here at the castle. If Griffin is walking or just lying around enjoying a "senior moment" and one of the other pups runs past him without even touching him, Griffin snaps out a bark/growl noise as if he's telling the younger furkids that they had better slow down and watch where they're going. Griffin's is not into the party scene and goes to bed rather early and basically could care less if there are any other pupsters around for company. Though, Griffin is a senior, we really aren't exactly sure how old he is but the vet guesstimates him to be around 12 to 13 years old. He does have arthritis settling into his lower back and his back legs will stiffen up too. Griffin weighs a solid 5.7 pounds and even though he has some of his teeth he does prefer to eat soft food. He also does a wonderful job of going outside to potty. Griffin would do best in an adult only home as your only furkid but would most likely do just fine in a home with an older pupster who wasn't rambunctious. If you are interested in giving Griffin a forever loving home then please feel free to fill out our on-line adoption application.
