She's a gorgeous pup Twirl and the only thing that lifts my heart (from her perspective, certainly not yours) is that she gets to be with you and be loved by you until her short life is over.  I am of course wanting a miracle turnaround for her but she may already have received her miracle by landing in your home.

Twirl I'm sorry I misunderstood and thought Lady Bird had been put down.  But you still have her and where there is life there is hope.  My Molly was given 3 months but had over 2 years and because she didn't know she was ill she just lived her normal life didn't suffer.  It was only the last 2 days that she was ill.  I hope you will have your gorgeous little pup for a long time to come, but even if her life is short I know you will have given her the best one possible  :cuddle;

she will not live much longer - it is a miracle she is still alive -
her heart is so big and it makes all kinds of noises -
right now, Lady Bird is running around the downstairs chasing Trasie -
they fight over toys
she was swimming today -
this is hard to understand -

Lots of cuddles for you and Lady Bird. Spend this special time with her.. she will know in her (big) heart how much you love her and care for her. Animals can sense this and it will give her comfort.

she is not down yet
this morning she is barking for me to pet her
she still has a quality of life and is not in pain
she is loved and maybe that is giving her extra time
she was begging for a piece of chocolate from Trasie
and I gave her some ( a tiny bite )
