Sinatra Sings on Rainbow Bridge

Sinatra is a very special puppy we saved from Polk Animal shelter earlier this year.  He was a very sick puppy and we rushed to get him out and have him checked out by our vets.  He had a severe respiratory infection and was depressed from being in the shelter environment.  His name was given to him by the vet tech, Jayme, who took care of him in his first critical days after leaving the shelter.  She gave him his name because he had blue eyes and would sing when he was hungry :) 

Sinatra grew into a happy, healthy little boy and enjoyed his time with his foster family.  But then something wonderful happened, his very own family adopted him!!  Over the past several months he enjoyed life with a human brother and a new mom!  Unfortunately, Sinatra became very sick again over the last few weeks and began having severe neurological symptoms and quit eating, he went to rainbow bridge this morning, in his own home, surrounded by a family who loved him.

Sinatra's mom Liz says it was a pleasure to have had the time they did with him and an honor to show him love and compassion.  RIP Sinatra - we will miss you and are forever glad you made it out of the shelter and into a family, even if for just a short while.
