Loki was diagnosed with chronic kidney disease just over a year ago. We have been trying to manage it ever since.

On Wednesday, he seemed very lethargic and his saliva became very thick. He also showed no interest in his food. He was brought to our family vet for a round of IV fluids the following day, and his bloodwork showed severely high levels of BUN and creatinine (the two main indicators of kidney disease). We were referred to the emergency hospital in Vancouver that night, where he received more IV fluids in attempt to treat his high levels.

Loki showed little, if at all, improvement in his blood levels after 36 hours of IV fluids and other medication at the  emergency hospital in Vancouver. He was in critical condition and we immediately drove him down to the emergency hospital in Renton, where dialysis for dogs is available.

The cost of dialysis will be expensive, and Loki may need 2-3 weeks of therapy to hopefully return to normal. The doctors are also looking into what may have caused Loki's blood levels to spike. It is uncertain when we will be able to return home to Vancouver.

Thank you all for your love and support. Each donation, big or small, is truly appreciated. We will try our best to send our thanks to every contributor.

Thank you to all who donated, shared, and sent us words of support. Unfortunately, Loki passed away last Monday. He may be gone but he will never be forgotten. The raised amount will go towards paying off his medical bills, his funeral costs, and donations to various animal charities in Loki's honor. We cannot thank you enough for all the kindness and sympathy that have been shown to us throughout this incredibly difficult time.

Loki has been successfully admitted into the emergency hospital in Renton. He should be receiving a blood transfusion for his anemia in the morning and hopefully begin dialysis soon after that.

Physically, Loki looks a little bit better than when he was first brought to the emergency hospital in Vancouver. He still doesn't have much energy and he hasn't voluntarily eaten since Wednesday night. The doctors will feed him through a feeding tube until he is able to eat on his own.

The past 3 days have been the hardest of our lives, as it also should have been for Loki. Each day feels like a week, and we are holding our breath each time we visit Loki. It is still so hard for us to accept the reality of the situation. We promise you all that we will do everything we can to help Loki recover.

We are completely overwhelmed by the response to all of this. Each message brings tears to our eyes and each contribution makes us feel so blessed. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts.

- Tim and Viv

I'm happy to see the donations continue! Loki may need ongoing care, and people should know that the gofundme site takes a cut of the proceeds, so we did need to exceed the amount Loki needed for him to actually receive that much. So...keep it going! And please get well, Loki!

I had messaged the owner something a 4-year-old boy had said when his dog passed. I know many of you dog owners will relate. "I know why (dogs don't live as long as humans). People are born so that they learn how to live a good life – like loving everybody all the time and being nice, right? Well, dogs already know how to do that, so they don’t have to stay as long.”

Very sorry for your loss of sweet Loki. I enjoyed his videos so much. What a silly boy he was! I sympanthize and empathize as my sweet corgi boy, Charles Avocado VanGogh was diagnosed with liver failure in January at the young age of 4 years old. Prior to diagnosis, I started sinking myself into debt to try and help him (including a very expensive surgery). We do everything that we can to help keep our babies happy and healthy for as long as we can. It is the most difficult and selfless thing to do to let them go so they are not in pain anymore. I anguish the day that I have to make that decision for my baby. I admire your bravery and selflessness in making that decision for yours. I am so sorry and sad that the world took precious Loki away so soon. He will be frolicking in the fields of Asgard forever.

I'm so so so sorry for your loss. My corgi baby, Charles Avocado VanGogh, was diagnosed with liver failure in January. We have been medically managing it since. The only prognosis they gave me at the vet is "grim". I've put myself into a lot of debt trying to pay for his medical expenses, so I understand your troubles. It's especially difficult being a graduate student, all by myself, and trying to work through this. So believe me, I understand what you're going through. It hurts so much to see them unlike themselves. I wish there was a corgi support group we could turn to in times like these. I hope for many more happy days with Charles and I'm sorry that the world took Loki away from you too soon. I know he is frolicking in the fields of Asgard. :'(

Still donation coming even after you had gone a week before. Look how much you are loved and missed. I know it is too soon to think now, but I hope there will be a memoir with Loki's photos... or Calendar 2017, because your smiles are still a big part of our lives. Love you Loki, and hugs to Loki's family x

Im sorry, I couldn't donate more but I just wanted to say my fiancé Sarah and I are so sorry for your loss. We always adored Loki so much and looked at his Instagram all the time. He has touched so many people and gave us so many great memories that we can look back on and just smile. Being parents of 3 corgis ourselves we don't know what we would do if this happened to us but we just want to say we are praying for you and that we will always miss and love Loki! ♥
