My daughter’s 11 year-old chihuahua Tinkerbell was staying with us for a short while. We knew that he had a relatively mild heart condition that was well managed by medication. This photograph was taken last Saturday, the day he arrived. On Monday evening he appeared weak and, on Tuesday, our vet (veterinary surgeon) examined him and prescribed medication for cardiopulmonary insufficiency. Whilst the vet was writing the prescription, Tinkerbell went into a crisis from which the best efforts of the vet couldn’t revive him. Sad, sad day.
