Arrival Story: Her former owners wanted a JRT but didn't realize how hyper they are. A friend took her in after she was no longer wanted and she asked me if I would foster her. I said yes. While she was with us I realized she had allergies. We tried all kinds of remedies and meds but nothing really helped much. That's when I decided to keep her because I worried that someone else might not want to deal with the allergies - and get rid of her. Of course, she's still hyper and she still has allergies. She's just an itchy mess! We love her just the way she is.
Bio: She is the most stubborn dog I have ever had. She can be playing full on and hit a wall or something else and it doesn't bother her at all. She just continues playing. We tell her over and over to stop something she's doing. In the end we have to put her in her crate to settle her down.
Keighty didn't make it...I just don't know what to say.
Why oh why do they wait 'til the last minute to show us
how sick they are? Why? I'm so angry at myself for not
paying closer attention. I feel like I didn't do enough.
I'm just so angry at myself right now.
She passed away at the vet's early this morning. It makes
me so sad to know that she was alone without her family
there. That hurts me so much...I'm sorry, Keighty. I let
I can't write anymore right now. I thank you so very much
for your thoughts and prayers. I thank you all for being
there for us.
Keighty is at the vet's. Took her in yesterday
because she hadn't been feeling good for a
couple days. She hadn't been eating like usual
and she was throwing up a little. Had different
types of bloodwork done and it doesn't look good.
Yesterday it looked like pancreatitis (I don't
think I spelled that right, but you know what
I mean). The vet called me this morning with more
results from another bloodwork, and the numbers
are worse. Her liver, kidneys, and pancreas are
involved. In other words... they're failing. Wow...
I can't believe this. First Redford and now Keighty,
but she's in worse shape now. I'm in shock...just
in shock. Yesterday, I thought, oh it's serious,
but she'll get better with treatment. I've heard
dogs get better from pancreatitis, but now...it's
not a good prognosis at all...not good at all. I
Keighty is in dire need of your prayers. I believe
in miracles and I'm hoping for one for her. Please
pray for her.
Yup, it was my birthday...
aaaand I didn't enjoy it much.
Why? Because I was limping around
and just not feeling too good.
Why? Because I broke one of my
back nails somehow. I guess I do
know how, but I can't tell my mom.
She's wondering what happened and
feeling bad for me because it's been
bleeding a little and she knows it's
Every once in a while this happens
to one of us, so she knows it'll get
better, but for now, I'm in a blue
buuuuttt I wanna thank all who sent
me gifties and paw-mails. I really
appreciate all of you.
Love you tremendously much, pals!
