This post has been a long time coming. I found myself avoiding the topic because every time I sat to write it, my eyes would swell with tears. Today I’m finally ready to share our story of how Jackson got sick. If you follow me on Instagram it’s likely you’re aware that our little guy has had a rough few months. In mid-October, Jackson contracted Leptospirosis. A bacterial disease that attacks the kidneys – fast. It was only a matter of days from the time Jackson was his normal healthy self, to the time we were told our little man wasn’t going to make it. The months following Jackson’s diagnosis have been a rollercoaster for my family. Through all the ups and downs, hospital stays and dozens of follow up visits – I’m happy to report that our little guy is doing well. He’s a fighter! For all you dog owners out there, PLEASE READ THIS.
