Monty:  December 2013

 

...by Lise & Rick M.

 

SweaterIt was just after Christmas 2013 that my girlfriend, Lori, who raises toy poodles phoned me to let me know she had a very sick puppy that was about 4 months old at the time.  We named the puppy Monty and he was diagnosed with a patent ductus arteriosus (PDA), which is a heart defect that he was born with. Without correction of the PDA, Monty could develop congestive heart failure, a complication of heart disease, and die within a year.   More About Monty
