We are so incredibly proud of our E Team Baloubies. Aqua was the most pawfect Mama we could have imagined & she raised such confident & well rounded little souls. They lit up her & our lives. They melted hearts around the globe via our Instagram & Facebook accounts & they now live with wonderful families who have become friends & with whom we plan to stay in contact with forever.
The experience was bitter sweet, due to the unbelievably traumatic loss of our most precious little E Team Baloubie man, Elmo, who then became Biggie Smalls. Our poor Biggie lost his life due to aspiration pneumonia, as documented on our social media accounts. Aspiration pneumonia happens when gastrointestinal contents are inhaled into the lungs, resulting in a secondary inflammation and infection of the lung. The inflammation, excessive fluid and mucus accumulates fast within the lower airway, causing difficulty breathing & in the worst cases in loss of life. Biggie Smalls, our E Team angel was too young & tiny to fight even though we did all we could to try to save him. Biggie was a beautiful curious but shy little nugget with the hugest blue eyes & softest fur. When he curled up his countless rolls made him look like a fluffy little croissant. Biggie Smalls will always be a huge part of our Baloubie story & we will never ever forget him.
Our blue E Team boy, Eros became Pablo & now lives his best life in Houston with 2 English Bulldog siblings, Lola & Chubbs. Our little blue fawn Eclair is now Honey Boo Boo & lives in Detroit area with her Uncle, our A Team Baloubie Mister Knuckles. It is so amazing that they are together! Our E Team Estée has moved to the Baltimore area where she will follow in my & Aqua’s footsteps & train to work as a therapy dog alongside her psychotherapist human Mom, which makes us so happy. Last but not least, Echo has remained with us at Casa Blue.
The E Team Baloubies brought us so much love & happiness & some heartbreak too. We love them all to the moon & back & are so grateful to have them in our lives & in our hearts.
