there were about 50 really kind and supportive emails and $3000 in donations thru the pay pal account..every single donation added up to enough to pay off the barn yard animals vet account (the other vets will have to wait a bit longer)..thank you so much to everyone!!!
my youngest daughter called, she and her boyfriend watched it from my son's and fiancee's house...the concenous was mom did not come acrcoss as crazy and they are proud of what we do....whew. her favorite image was copper popping out of the trees with his daisy on...copper has been with me on and off since she was a young teenager.....(copper was adopted out unsuccessfully 6 times before i made him a permanent sanctuary dog.) she well remembers that dastardly beagle's creativity in escaping our family backyard. she thinks it is pretty funny that i finally actually outsmarted him and made him look freaking adorable at the same time.
anyway...i liked watching the animals and seeing all of their faces on national tv...they all looked so lovely and are not the least bit annoying when veiwing them on the TV instead of under my feet!
the only thing i want to clarify is...there was no way that TG would have euthanized little maggie...in a public shelter yes the risk would have been there...but not with them, they would have given her the best of care for as long as she has. she only came to saints because it is my specialty, and her coming here made more room for them to help younger dogs who could find a home.
yesterday was the diabetic day from hell....caspar went hypoglycemic, apollo went hyperglycemic and i am not sure what the heck dusty was doing but i held her insulin til noon til she was herself again. only little angel, who really is an angel stayed well within her blood sugar limits.
the gift that samanatha referred to in her comment was a large, beautifully engraved stone for me...it had this perfect heart painted in red, with the name..."Tally ho Braveheart" outlined in black next to it...thank you guys...it is truly lovely and a wonderful memorial for him...i still really miss my mr. softy.
this morning is the end for shilo. her euthanization appointment is for 9:15... she held in there like a trooper but i am finally 100% convinced that she is just not going to eat again, she wants to be done with this life. we are going to have to go into the clinic for this, please shilo, don't be afraid.
