Aw, I'm so glad they found a home together.

Dogs with disabilities are such special creatures.

Just wanted to provide a sad update to the "Tanner & Blair" story. Tanner went to the bridge a couple of days ago surrounded by the love of his adoptive family.

Update from the Tulsa Adoption Coordinator: ...Tanner had been doing so well in his new home and had the occasional small seizure but about 10 days ago he had a number of major seizures and spent a couple of days at the clinic. They stabilized him and he was able to go back home. However, last week he took a turn for the worse and was taken back to the clinic where it was discovered that he had a ruptured bladder. It was determined by all vets at the clinic and a surgeon from OVS that there was nothing that could be done to repair the rupture."

Tanner was out of a litter of "let's have puppies with the family dogs", the pups were born with sight issues and developed epilepsy within the first couple months of their lives. The breeder of course was not able to sell the litter so off to rescue they were sent. So three messages here: if you're going to breed do it right & don't gamble with the lives of the puppies; if you're going to buy, please support a reputable breeder & don't give the BYB's a reason to breed; and for those considering rescuing, please do it. Tanner spent most of his life in a kennel at the vet clinic, thankfully he was able to know the love of a wonderful family in his final months of life.

Thank you for updating us, though this is a very sad update for Tanner.
I, too, am so glad he finally knew love!
What will become of Blair-his heart must be broken!

Such a very sad ending, so sorry to hear Tanner is gone. I'm glad he got to experience the love of a family.

Godspeed sweet boy.

If memory serves me correctly, they have another dog so Blair will still have doggie companionship
