Fiona Boujee Bleu’s Boston Terrier Memorial

Blue Boston Terrier Puppy

Losing a Boston Terrier is like losing a member of the family. The sorrow you feel is a natural process of grieving.

Fiona Boujee Bleu’s Memorial 

Our sweet little lap baby Fiona (“Fi”)

Boujee Bleu,

God blessed us with a 1.24 pound puppy to love after such a long wait. You were so strong and overcame every issue they weren’t sure would resolve.

You brought sunshine to cloudy days, lifted our spirits, and touched our hearts more than we ever imagined. From potty training to fetch and giving us your paw you astounded us by adjusting and learning so much in such a short period of time. Your spunkiness, fun, loving charismatic demeanor we will always remember.

Our hearts ache to have had to say goodbye so quickly and unexpectedly. We love and miss you our little puppy princess.

Fiona is at the the 23 second mark as well as the 1:03 mark.

Fiona was born on November 7th, 2020, and passed away at the age of 4.5 months old due to Hemorrhage/blood clot during a spay procedure on March 23rd, 2021.

It is with a heavy heart to say that we had to say goodbye to her unexpectedly this past Tuesday, March 23rd. We brought her in to be spayed after all of her blood tests came back on 3/16 looking “beautiful” according to her vet. The vet said her spay procedure went great, but when they unhooked her she immediately turned blue and they couldn’t revive her after working on her for 30+ minutes.

Waiting for her felt like forever! We finally got the little runt of the litter, Fiona, when she weighed only 1.24 pounds at 6 weeks old. She had an open fontanel and hydrocephalus which affected her gait and caused her to go in circles when she was excited. However, she quickly overcame all of  these health challenges and grew to a healthy 8 pounds at 4.5 months old. 

Unfortunately, as with any surgical procedure that requires anesthesia, humans or animals, we know there are always risks. We just never anticipated the worst. 

This is the first time I’ve ever even heard of a dog passing away from a spay procedure. After researching some, I’ve learned this happens more than I realized. Giving it to a higher power and asking for comfort during this very sad and difficult time.

Fiona was my saving grace during this pandemic while working from home in such a quiet lonely house when her dad was at work.
