Here's my Starlight (former foster dog who wasn't adopted--she has an "attitude") with a red bandage on her leg-- it's an IV connection. She had a major seizure on Tuesday night, and one the following morning. She was at the vet all day yesterday and will be there today. We'll get her stabilized. My vet is GREAT! It's Acredale Animal Hospital (http://www.acredaleanimalhospital.com/ ) in Virginia Beach, VA. I LOVE MY VET! (They are giving me discounts on all the surgeries we are doing on our foster dogs-- so if you want to say thank you, just put it in the comments and I'll let them know.) The vets we use in Richmond (Farmers Veterinary Hospital ww.farmersvet.com/) and Northern Virginia Colonial Animal Hospital www.colonialvets.com/ are also wonderful.
JUST A DOG
For us in rescue, and many others, there is no such thing as "Just a Dog." These are living, breathing examples of God's presence in this world. To look at these faces is to be given a gift. To be able to help them come back to health, learn to trust and give love is a blessing. The story below is "Just a Dog," but we know they are much more than that. (Stitch above and below, new to rescue.)
