Arrival Story: Back in the early years of Best Friends Animal Sanctuary, before they became corporate, I was friends and a volunter for them here in So CA. One day I get a call from the Sanctuary, from Silva asking me if I can take another dog, I had 4 at the time , but I was dealing with a cancer dog and a diabetic cat. I was told that this dog was a favor to Kim Bassinger the actress, her sectretary had found her , and they had place d her in a few homes that didn't work out. Samdra was a barker, and pretty agressive. They said itwould be a big favor to them, since Kim was a big donator. Silva said, I know you won't get rid of her if she has problems...then she said...By the way she does not like MEN.!
Well wen went to pick her up, I get out of the car and ny husband stayed in, as soon as I got her in the car she jumped up on Nick and rode all the way home with him, that night she jumped on the bed and they slept together.
She was a physco dog...barking, chewing, growling. She was a real challenge. You'd never know that she was the same girl. WE've had her now for 13 years and Sandra Marie is the girl of the house, and she sure loves her dad.
went to the bridge last night. I was there to greet her.
She was almost 17yrs. Her dogster ID is 102162 if anyone would like to send their sympathy. She didn't have lots of friends. Her family will really miss her. But she is with me and all the dogster Angels...
I don't know if Sandra is going to make it thru the nite. Her Vet was off today, but her office called her and she told us to try and hang on until morning. Since I posted this morning, Sandra tried to go outside then collasped. It was very frightening then she sorta came back.
She was so dehydratd and weak she could not stand. I kept givng her fluids and I read that you can give a dog Pedilyte so I have been trying that. Then late afternoon she wanted to go out I helped her then she had a seizure and I thought she had died, but again she came thru. She started to throw up again..and now she is just resting, her breathing is shallow and she looks unresponsive.
If she makes it thru the nite, she will see her vet at 8:00AM. Our vet said sometimes they get what is called a Genatric episode and after 24 hrs they are ok. We ae praying that she either goes peacefully or will make it and come back. She was doing so much better these last few days we were really hopeful.
I want to thank everyone for all the support. It never get easy. I have been by her side all day. I love her so much.
I will post in the morning and hopefully she will get thru the nite..
