Violet was our little spark of wildfire from day one. She was our first PWD and the matriarch of our doggy family. Sometime early in 2018 she developed a tick borne illness. She had been vaccinated for Lymes each year, and received regular flea and tick meds... But, through all of that, a tick was still able to get to her. She was a trooper through all of the vet visits and antibiotics. She passed away while receiving a blood transfusion. We miss her every single day. RIP sweet Violet.
