****Hi everyone. We come to you all for support in what has been a very trying time for us here at Twyla’s Friends. *** We are going to need all the help we can get!!****
On December 27, 2020 we - on a joint venture with one of our partner rescues, ATDR - took on a litter of 6 5-week old that look to be mixed pug/terrier/chiweenie puppies. We decided that they would be named the Game of Thrones puppies. We named the 5 girls and the one boy after the GOT cast. ( Initially we thought they were 6 girls, but after their first day home it was discovered that Bran was indeed a little boy!) The pups had been born outside and kept outside in Splendora prior to being rescued. The pups were delighted to be warm and safe in their puppy pen with round the clock care by their foster family . Everyone was acting great but then Bran, the only boy, started acting lethargic on the night of the 30th so he was taken to Animal Emergency Northeast in Humble for care. He was given a parvo test, and to our dismay it came back positive. (Sadly, these babies were incubating Parvo when they came into their foster home. Foster home has never had parvo and these babies were kept safely in the indoor puppy pen after coming home) Bran was released from that ER the next day, but after being home for half a day he started acting lethargic again. By that time, Arya had also started acting lethargic. Being it was New Year’s Eve, the directors of the rescues agreed VERGI was their best option. Bran and Arya were admitted that night. The next day, 2 more pups showed symptoms and the vet on call at VERGI said the safest option for the babies was to bring the remaining four in as it would just be a matter of hours before the remaining two showed symptoms. So all 4 went into VERGI to be hospitalized. As you all can imagine this has been a VERY expensive litter of pups. Over the last couple of days, 4 pups have ￼been discharged back to their foster home. One pup, Cersei, was taken back last night as foster mom noticed her gums were getting paler and paler. She was monitored overnight and is doing great and we can pick her back up today. Khaleesi is still not eating on her own and still has an NG tube down to her tummy. VERGI has said she needs to be hospitalized several more days. Sansa, the little white fluffy pup of the bunch, had several seizures and lost her battle last night. We are devastated to put it mildly. She had a huge personality and wanted to be cuddled non stop. She had especially bonded with the 10 year old in her foster home. We were pulling for every single baby to pull through this nightmare, but out little Sansa couldn’t fight anymore. Bran, Arya, and Gilly are all doing awesome in the foster home so far. Playing, eating, drinking and getting cuddles. Cersei should come home today. Khaleesi is still fighting at VERGI and we are sending her all our love and strength. Fight baby girl!! You have a lifetime of love waiting. That being said, the directors of both rescues have agreed it will be easier for fundraising if Twyla’s takes over the bills 100% for the Game of Thrones pups. We also decided that the bill is so huge , we had to fundraise now. Twyla’s paid part of the VERGI bill as did ATDR. Twyla’s is paying ATDR their part in full as we are completely taking over everything on these babies. ATDR is an amazing partner to have and we are so lucky to have them in our corner!! We love you guys!! That being said, now we are going to need help from our supporters and dog lovers far and wide. We won’t be able to help the projected number of dogs for the year 2021 unless we can restore our budget after this ENORMOUS and UNPRECEDENTED expense. Please share this far and wide as we are going to need all the help we can get!!!!! Bills are right now over
$10,000 . Amounts from invoices will be posted in just a few minutes.
