Droof died 16 days ago, Pitch was put to sleep on Saturday evening and this morning at 8 o'clock Flick passed away.
Last night Flick was very quiet and seemed unwell ... at half past six this morning it was obvious that he was close to death ... Chloe and Nina cuddled him for a little while and then laid him on some shredded paper so that he could died peacefully. We checked on him every few minutes and at eight o'clock he was gone.
I took the girls to school in the car so that we could put his body in the wood as we passed. We've laid him next to Droof ... his body is still there covered in leaves.
Although it is very upsetting to lose the three brothers in just 16 days it's also lovely that they are all together again.
I told the boys' breeder about their deaths and she told me that their sister had passed away on Friday ... isn't that sad? I still can't believe that two and a half weeks ago they all seemed to be fine and now they're all dead ....
Brothers Huy, Nang and Richard Nguyen have a lot in common, including successful careers as surgeons, a passion for technological innovation, and a shared and thriving surgical practice. Safe to say, most people do not have a doctor in the family, let alone three. What is even more interesting is that the Nguyen brothers, all pioneers in advanced laparoscopic surgery in the Bay Area, have gone into practice together. Their practice, Advanced Surgical Associates, is based in San Jose. The brothers say their desire to practice medicine was inspired by their father. In 1975, after the Fall of Saigon, the family was forced to flee Vietnam. They came to the U.S. via a sponsorship from a church group in Iowa. Their father, Colonel Thu Nguyen, who was in the military in Vietnam, had an injured back, and that is how it all started. He sought chiropractic treatment to help his back problem, as well as worked his way through school from GED to bachelor’s degree. He then attended Palmer College of Chiropractic in Davenport, Iowa, became a licensed chiropractor and eventually earned a Ph.D. in nutrition.
