Breed: French Bulldog
We lost our boy Lumiere 💔
Our precious Lumiere suddenly coded today at Blue Pearl .
Please know that we all are in shock and that we are trying to come up with an understanding. We do not know the exact cause of death at this time .
A tribute post to honor him will be done soon . Perhaps we will know more .
Please understand for now I personally am in shock as I am sure you are .
We felt you , our wonderful supporters, needed to know . Special love and thanks to Janet Ames , a beautiful friend who came to know Lumiere in a very special way . More about that when we post later .
Your support is needed and appreciated. Please help if you can …
With swollen eyes and tears ,

Update – Lumiere
French Bulldog with horrendous wound to the neck . Severely emaciated. Weakness in back legs .
Today Dr. Elkins did surgery on Lumiere to repair a hole in his cheek . The actual large wound was cleaned and a tie over bandage was applied after surgery . This large wound will not heal on its own , it is a very big area . Lumiere will undergo , when he is in better physical shape , a surgery that will require a flap of skin removed from his shoulder or thigh to be surgically applied to his neck .
We also did a CT scan of his spine while he was under anesthesia. Lumiere has some unexplained weakness in his back legs . Muscle mass has deteriorated. We are unsure if this is due strictly to being so emaciated. So proper nutrition will be so important for this boy . We will also look in to physical therapy when he stabilizes a bit .
Lumiere’s case ,will be costly , as most of our cases are ,so donations would be so appreciated.

He is currently receiving pain meds and being evaluated at Blue Pearl and I am waiting for an update . We ended up naming him Lumiere ( from *Beauty And The Beast* )
