Traci has taken a love for the Cardigan breed to another level with her own litters this spring.
Her story is one good breeders know well, the overflowing love, the heartache, the anxiety and the reward of raising healthy puppies in our amazing breed.
Traci had 2 litters, she lost 7 at birth and 2 a few weeks later. They overcame tube feedings, aspiration scares, minimal gains and more.
Traci has 17 puppies and they are her world. Anyone who is facebook friends with her has seen every aspect of what breeding really looks like, every joy and tear through the process.
Just as we all thought she was in the clear as the puppies reached 8 weeks old and began going home, many came down with Parvo and Coccidia. She is treating more than half of her litter with one little guy in hospitalization.
She has stayed home with these dogs and attended to them around the clock. Recently, in the midst of all this, her washing machine gave out because she was laundering everything so often.
If you have anything you can contribute, all funds of this campaign will go to Traci to use as she sees fit. I know she is battling vet fees, rx expenses as well as needing a new washer.
Remember, every dollar helps and no contribution is too small. I would love the cardi nation to come together to support Traci in being a prime example of what loving breeding looks like.
