the silence the past few weeks. Things have been very tough
at Tanyati lately. Despite all my best efforts, giving her
every known medication for Auto Immune Haemolytic Anaemia,
Raven passed away on 22nd March. It was a devastating blow.
The 7 weeks I fought for her life seemed to have been for
nothing. But I know that there was nothing more I could do,
and I take comfort in knowing that Raven knew what I had done
for her and her puppies and that there was nothing more on
earth I could have done. Rest in peace, my darling Raven.
You were life personified and you will be missed so much.

Little Liam is 4 weeks old now (in reality only 3 weeks
old) and continues to grow and get stronger. He is drinking
80mls per meal now and has started to play with me after
meal times. He has found his voice, which he uses with great
gusto if he feels he needs to be fed or played with. I am
hopeful he will get through this ordeal, and I can't wait
to let him meet Raven.
Raven continues to get stronger and is putting on weight
at last. We have a follow-up consultation with the specialist
on Thursday where more blood will be drawn and tested to
see what is happening with her auto immune haemolytic anaemia.
I pray for good news.

I was devastated
to lose little Leo today. He grew weaker and weaker and eventually
developed signs of a neurological problem and to release him
from further suffering I made the very difficult decision
to let him go. Many tears were shed. To get to 18 days and
then to lose him was a real bitter blow.

We have had
a very traumatic 2 1/2 weeks. On 31st January Raven started
to abort her litter, 9 days early. She was rushed to emergency
and went into theatre. They removed the remaining puppies
via a c-section, and spayed Raven as her uterus had twisted
and part of it had died off. There were 10 puppies in total,
3 were born dead, 7 were alive after the caesarian, but due
to being so premature, only 3 survived the night.
I brought home 3 almost hairless brindle
boys early the next morning, while Raven remained in ICU in
a critical condition. A week later the largest puppy died
and post mortem results indicated an ecoli infection. The
remaining 2 pups are hanging in there, but I am battling some
issues with them and they are far from out the woods yet.
After a 2 1/2 week stay in ICU Raven came
home yesterday and has been diagnosed with Autoimmune Haemolytic
Anaemia, which means that her own immune system is killing
off her red blood cells. She is on extemely high doses of
cortisone in an effort to prevent her body from viewing her
own blood as alien.
Please keep Raven and her 2 tiny sons in
your prayers as there is a very long road ahead of us. Raven
has not met her sons, and will not meet them until they are
a lot older. She is on too much medication to allow the pups
to suckle, even if she was strong enough. I am therefore raising
them as orphans and am feeding every 3 - 4 hours around the
clock. There is no guarantee that the pups will survive as
they never suckled from Raven and were born too early to have
any immunity passed to them by her.
Each day is a gift, and one that I do not
take lightly, but knowing that all my efforts, sleepless nights
and worry is not enough to guarantee they survive is very

At Tanyati Boxers we remain
in the forefront when it comes to health testing. We only
breed from comprehensively health tested animals. Our latest
endeavour with regards health testing is to have our breeding
dogs genetically tested for ARVC (Arythmogenic Right Ventricular
Cardiomyopathy), or Boxer Cardiomyopathy. This test is carried
out in the USA and we are delighted to announce that Raven
(Tanyati Unfair Advantage) has been DNA tested for ARVC
and is found to be NEGATIVE! We are delighted with this result!

Have just had to make one of
the most difficult decisions of my life, to help Flipper over
the Rainbow Bridge. He was my loyal companion for many years
and I am heart broken to have had to say goodbye. Thanks to
Pat Withers and Joanne Povall for letting Flipper be a part
of my life. He was loved very much. Rest in Peace Flipper
