new dog in..another neglect case..the owners signed her over so she came straight to us.
she is a senior..matted, dirty and stinky, lumpy with tumors, painfully crippled in her back legs, dripping blood from her urethra, trying to pee a few drops every few minutes and sucking a ton of water back.
i barely got her settled in the shop when i had to leave her to get to work by 5. she was howling in protest at being left alone as i drove out of the driveway.
i have given her 3 comfy beds, fed her some canned gastro laced with antibiotics and pain meds. she licked my hands inbetween eating, she laid her head across my legs..she is so incredibly sweet and i feel like a crud leaving her alone in the shop within an hour of her arrival. but i bet that is more care in 30 minutes than she has had in a very long time.
as soon as i get home, i will settle everyone for bed, kick the big guys (except ewok and smokey) out of my room and go and get her to move her over to my room.
i tell you this is what we are here for...this is what we are supposed to do.
we are to be there for the ones that we can possibly stretch to help and screw all of the BS of everything else.
tonight i am giving her a new name and a new life ( i just can't be bothered to deal with any more not so innocent past neglectful owners)...and she will never be alone and uncared for again.
welcome halo..and i will love you.
