Arrival Story:
Defi lived with her first human family until she was 11 years old. Then both her humans died and the people who were supposed to care for her left her in a kill shelter in Austin, TX, very overweight and with severe heartworms. A rescue got her from the shelter and contacted Col. Potter cairn rescue. They took her in and asked us if we would foster her, even though there was a good possibility at her age and with severe heartworms she would go into heart failure when treated for the heartworms. Eventually CP decided to try the longer and milder treatment and in months Defi was heartworm free. She had seizures a couple of months after coming to us, was on medication for over a year, had no more seizures, so with vet approval we weened her off of the medications and so far so good!

I am an Angel!

I am an angel now. My trip to the Bridge started late last week when I wasn't acting myself and mama knew something was wrong. The vet ran tests and my liver values were way too high. No tumors found, so vet (and my pawrents) hoped I had a liver infection and antibiotics/liver supplement would fix me up. Unfortunately I was in liver failure and not getting better, so mama and daddy made an appointment to help me to the Bridge Wednesday afternoon. They kept checking on me Tuesday through the evening/night and daddy found that I had made my own way to the Bridge around 2 in the morning. Everyone misses me here, but they are glad I went in my own time and way...and they will always have me in their hearts.


Other Dogs All Day???

Mom swears she's going to work, but she comes home smelling of other dogs! If she can spend the entire day with them, why can't WE go and she can spend her day getting paid and playing with us???? NOT FAIR!!

What's up with the hoomans??? Are they starving me? Since midnight last night, no food or water has been to be found in this house! Dad did take me for a walk this morning and he put me in the car right away after our walk!

Oh dear, I've been taken to the dogtor's office and dad is LEAVING me here!! They say I have to have my toofers cleaned today. Defi

Defi's mom here......I always worry when our pups go under anesthesia, especially a little senior girl like our Defi who also had severe heartworms only a couple of years ago. Will be nervous until we get her home safely. Please send some good thoughts for everything to go ok with our girl!
