Happy ending 1-27-2017
We rescued 13 year old Sadie on Christmas day - great gifts really do come in small packages! She is tiny, sweet and indomitable - a real survivor. She adjusted to her foster home quickly, ate like a shark and slept on the best doggie bed. She gained weight and looks great. And best of all she was just adopted (Jan. 25, 2017).
Sadie and 12 year old Colby, her new cocker brother, already curl up together on their big comfy dog bed. Not a bad way to spend bleak mid-winter! Her mom says "She is the sweetest little girl."
Thanks to everyone who volunteered to foster Sadie at such short notice.
Update: Teddy is now in foster care with a single woman who lives in a quiet home with no other pets. Teddy has been to see our vet and he said he's almost blind - he does see a bit around the periphery of his cornea. To avoid panic attacks when Teddy can't see or hear his foster mom she now wears a bell around her waist.
Teddy is now on a hamburger and rice diet to clear up his colitis.
Teddy just loves going for long walks where he can sniff and smell every scent on the wooded path. He still won't let his foster mom out of his limited sight but he is beginning to relax and enjoy laying in his bed right next to her. Teddy just needs time.
