Foster Girl Ice
Posted 12 August 2009 - 05:53 AM
Little old Ice (Izzy) was dumped at Broward Animal control and was quickly picked up by a Boston Terrier Rescue rep and immediatly passed on to IGC Rescue. I was the foster mom to this sweet timid CDA with rotted teeth and an oral nasal fistula girl who had small muscular seizures and peed every hour. Blood work showed a working diagnosis of insulinoma. Not a curable cancer but managable one with proper dietary frequent feeding protocol and small doses of pred. Ice blossomed and happily joined my pack. I've dealt with this cancer before in my first greygirl, Tessa.
A dental was not possible for Ice but antibiotics and some raw meaty bones did help some. This weekend Ice had her first in a series of grand mal seizure clusters. It continued as a daily occurance. This is not a fair way to spend her golden years coupled with her other cancer. Ice was helped to the bridge early this morning while in my arms.
I am angry that her origanal owner was so callous to her years of good loyal service. She should have had the dignity of her own mom to help her through this. I hope her few weeks here made a difference. Please say a prayer for her sweet spirit.
Run free, Izzy girl.

"One of the unspoken truths of American life is how deeply people grieve over animals who live and die
with them, how real the emptiness is, how profound is the silence these creatures leave in their wake."

"He is your friend, your partner, your defender, your dog.
You are his life, his love, his leader. He will be yours, faithful and true, to the last beat of his heart. You owe it to him to be worthy of such devotion". ....
