We were looking for a miracle for Angel. She was in bad shape and we were not able to save her. She had a grade 5 (out of 6) heart murmur and her heart was "all over the place". Her Christmas wish was to be safe and loved and we gave her that. For the time we had her, she got the care an imperial princess deserved. She was loved and warm and comfortable .
It's what we do in rescue-- love them. If that is just for a few hours or a few months or longer, it's what we do. If we can make them better and then let them go to a new mom/dad, that's what we do. If we cannot heal them, fix them, then we just love them, and for each one of these little precious dogs, it is enough. They have been loved.
