cubbarli Dear friends, it is with a broken heart that we let you know that we lost our sweet Cubbie yesterday. While camping in Oregon last weekend, Cubbie became very ill and was rushed to two emergency hospitals. The doctors determined that she had septic peritonitis due to a perforated gastroduodenal ulcer caused by a drug interaction between two medications that were prescribed by two doctors from difference practices. Emergency surgery was performed and Cubbie valiantly fought for 8 brave days. We gave her everything possible to support her while she fought and she began to show small progress, but the sepsis returned and when she began to decline quickly, we knew it was time to say goodbye. Cubbie left us, laying on a comfortable couch covered with one of her blankets from home, surrounded by those who loved her most - my husband, Arlington, and myself.
We are utterly devastated and struggling to come to terms with what happened to our beloved Cubbie. Cubbie fought so hard to stay with us, she wasn't ready to leave, but she was just too sick to continue fighting. We would like to thank the amazing doctors, vet techs, and staff at DoveLewis in Portland, Oregon for trying so hard to save our Cubbie. We would like to thank everyone who has ever liked or commented on Cubbie's photos. It means so much to us that others recognized how special our beautiful Cubbie was, and we take some comfort in the fact that she touched the hearts of so many people.
Rest in peace, our beautiful Cubbie Wubbie - you were the best girl in the world and we are so lucky to have you in our lives. We treasure every moment we had with you. We miss you so much.

We suffered a sudden loss last year & I totally understand the pain, as do do many of your supporters here. What a wonderful life beautiful Cubbie had, she went to sleep so loved, and knowing it. Take care, thinking of you all xxx 20h

  •   chanmansmom Cool toy, Buddy & Angel would love that. They constantly steal things from each other or are joined at the mouth 1mon
  •   cookie_cute Awww so cute! 1mon

  •   sam_copper They are really just sharing. 1mon
  •   mydogbodhi Do your doggies like this toy? I've been contemplating getting this. 4w
  •   cubbarli They do like it, but they are so silly about it and don't play with it the way it's meant. Arli and Partner just stand there holding it in their mouths since they like to steal each other's toy. 4w
