Sadly my Rat Terrier Mowgli did not survive his snake bites from a Diamondback rattlesnake. He was bitten at least two times, if not three on his face. After his bite, he lived for three hours before he died of a heart attack. When he started going into cardiac arrest, they tried to save him. We laid him to rest in our backyard, with a service for him. I have to get this out, for my own sanity. It has been hard on the family, because for three years when we lived in Phoenix Mowgli was my Mom's ONLY friend. We got him sick at five weeks old, and my Mom nursed him back to health. He was given to my Dad as a "gift" to walk after his six artery bypass surgery. We've all been crying, balling our heads out and upset. Our house is so quiet, and lonely, without our dogs around. We hope to get our other dog Sparkle back, but it will be extremely hard on her because she loved Mowgli and she'll mourn for him as dogs do. Sparkle is at the veterinarian because she got bit as well. She was sitting on the snake when it bit her on her side, near her left shoulder. Mowgli jumped in to save her, and my Mom who was right behind Mowgli trying to get him and save him. He took most of the snake's venom. We had to kill the snake, to protect our family. Here is a video of my Mom playing a game she made up with Mowgli; http://s26.photobucket.com/albums/c1...t=CLIP0009.flv And here he is, with a "cone" on his head, after having eye surgery earlier this year; http://s26.photobucket.com/albums/c144/My03Tundra/Personal Images/?action=view¤t=CLIP0002.flv Mowgli will be missed so much, and I'm glad he is in a better place and not suffering anymore. I hope to see him again some day. I'm crying for him, and the pain my Mother and Father have had to endure over his loss, as I post this.
