Please keep Artie in your thoughts and prayers

We have an English Bulldog named Artie. He is 19 months old and very sick. Recently in our local paper the Eastsider there was a story about a dog that contracted Leptospirosis. After we read the article we scheduled an appointment for Artie to get the vaccination. Apparently we were just a few days too late. Please I beg of you, if you live in the area it's only a $20 vaccine. Call your vet today.
It is not confirmed 100% because the blood work is not back from the lab being a holiday weekend, however it is suspected to be what he has. Even though we caught it early and he's healthy and young, he still only has a 60% chance of survival. We would appreciate any good thought or prayers for our little guy. Here are a few photos of our family.
