Went to Rainbow Bridge on October 8, 2008
We are sad to let you know that our family's best friend Polar passed away early this morning and ask that you keep him in you prayers.
He was diagnosed yesterday with Immune-Mediated Thrombocytopenia - which we understand is common in cocker spaniels. He was perfectly agile for our morning walk yesterday morning, but then by lunch time and his vet visit at 1:00 was already having trouble walking. We spent the entire night with him at a vet hospital and then with a specialist in Buffalo Grove until we finally made the difficult decisions to end his suffering as his symptoms had progressed so far in a matter of hours - that there was nothing that anyone could do for him.
Unfortunately our efforts were too late for a disease that the vets who have treated him indicated that they have never seen anything like it before - as it literally took him in one day.
We thank you from the bottom of our hearts for sending us this little guy as it was a deep and sincere pleasure to be part of his family.
We all miss him terribly!
The Redman Family
