Coco a norwegian forest was found abandoned at Jurong East. She was malnourished, dehydrated,very skinny and fur was badly matted.We took her in, gave her a nice bath and found that both her kidneys were enlarged and concluded that this was a case of an abandonment due to sickness. With the help of public contributions, we raised enough money to bring her to the vet for a full body check the next day. Doc est. her to be about 7yrs old and found that she has polycystic kidney disease and said she wouldnt last a month and proposed PTS(Put to sleep). We are very against PTS and hence requested for medications and took her back. Doc gave some anti biotics and drips for her to keep her hydrated. We also tried to rehoming her as we had other rescue cases on hand as well and our hand were really tight.However as she was old, sick and BLACK in colour nobody wants to adopt her.Guess what? It has been 2 years now and she’s still alive and kicking and is now a part of our big family!
Life hasn’t been easy these past two years. My mom was diagnosed with stage 4 cancer, my partner’s Mom also had cancer and his dad had stroke. My emotions and energy had been revolved mostly on making money and making time for loved ones. I levelled up these past two years, as a photographer my work is both mental and physical. But it’s all worthwhile when I get to go home no matter how tired I am at the end of my day, to see two happy faces who seemingly think the universe of me. No matter how discouraged I feel I am immediately revived. They are my battery chargers and it’s only right to provide the best of what I can offer. Often peers don’t understand why I work so hard, they are part of my reason. Every night I come home to two happy and healthy Shih tzus who have the luxury of choice of which Addiction Flavours they want to have for dinner (current fave is NZ Brushtail). This is my way of showing my love for my two little bright lights shining in my daily drudgery. #AddictionSG
Do you still remember how timid you were the first day you arrived? Hiding behind the sofa and staring at me were the only things you did. Luckily, few days later, you start eating like a pig and sleeping like a log. Oh yeah, you also pushed my cups down to the floor and pretended you were innocent. I guess you just realized that you were no guest in this house.
I know that every time you wag the tail welcoming me home, you are giving me silent orders to open more canned food. I don’t mind that every night you sleep in the center of my bed, but give me some room to at least turn over. With all the complaints being said, you know I won’t want you to change even one bit, as I always feel relieved and warm having you by my side, and nothing else matters.
Hey buddy, though I’ve never told anyone else, I really appreciate your original adopter for letting you become my family member. No matter how naughty you are or how bossy you can be, I will love you forever, my little bear.
We booked a X-mas trip to Breckenridge with our families including our baby Gus. He was great on the plane, but once we got to the destination we noticed Gus wasn’t eating, however it was a long day and we knew he needed sleep. That night his breathing was a bit off, but nothing too bad. The next morning my nephew wasn’t feeling real well so my Mom ran him to the urgent care thinking he probably had an ear infection. Well, we found out my nephew was struggling to breathe at that altitude and had to be on oxygen. Then it hit me…GUS NEEDED OXYGEN! We rushed him to a pet hospital and they told us we had to get him to lower altitude or he wouldn’t make it. We packed up and rushed him to a hospital in Denver. Two days of intensive care and we got him back Christmas Eve. Our family remained in Breckenridge without us for the entire trip… Thankfully he made a full recovery and we traveled safely home a few days later.
fatty has the best life because thats how i roll. my dog means everything to me and i would do everything to protect him give him the exercise he needs and all the car rides he wants/
My Leonardo was named for a ninja turtle 4.5 years ago. While not my idea, I am so grateful because he has nearly died 4x since birth. Instead of dying, my brave boy has fought like the ninja he was named after to not only live but thrive.
At 9wks he was in ICU requiring surgery for an undefined illness. Medication and rehab kept the intense pain of a destroyed hip and femur caused by a brown recluse spider bite at bay, as he did tracking, obedience & rally. He was an INCREDIBLE therapy dog for children with anger & mental health issues.
December ‘15 a stroke rendered him totally paralyzed in all 4 limbs. Amazing everyone, he was up and walking in a week. He has returned to doing everything he did before the stroke. In June, we discovered he ate a sock in May but somehow didn’t go septic. Biopsies taken during surgery to remove the sock, diagnosed IBD & Lymphangiectasia (Crohn’s & Celiac in humans). I will continue to do anything needed for my AMAZING boy; which brings me to you.
I work at a shelter and we get a lot of abused neglected and fearful dogs. I love to foster and help them learn the world isn’t so scary. Recently I fostered a little Chihuahua that nobody could even touch. This little girl has won my heart and I’ve decided to make her part of my family. I would do anything for her and all my other fur babies even if it meant living in my car. I love them so much.
Sodo and I were introduced to each other during a time of transition, right when we needed each other most. At the young age of 21 I made the decision to move away from my home city of Seattle, WA to Berkeley, CA. I really enjoyed the Bay Area, but was having a hard time making new friends and adjusting to the change. That’s when I met Sodo. The sweetest little, 3 month old, long haired dachshund puppy. He really became my best friend in a time of need.
When I made the decision to move back home to Seattle, Sodo was right by my side. I was very much inspired by Sodo, wanting him to live to longest, happiest, healthiest life he could possibly have. Shortly after moving home I made the decision to pursue a career in pet nutrition to not only help Sodo live a healthy life, but to help other pet owners strive for the same. Sodo is now 5 and joins me at work every day, rides on the back of my scooter, and loves to romp around in the snow, through the woods in Pacific Northwest.
It all changed with one VERY big word
IMMUNE MEDIATED THROMBOCYTOPENIA.
On the evening of January 18th, 2015 I learned that my best friend for over 11 years had an autoimmune disease and her body was essentially killing itself. I have never felt more hopeless in my life. But let’s back up a bit. My best friend, Roxanne, and I met when I was 15 years old. She was the hilariously clumsy 2lb Chihuahua puppy and I was the not-so-hilariously clumsy 6 foot tall girl with a mouth full of metal. Needless to say it was a match made in heaven. Fast forward to that evening. Sitting in the emergency vet awaiting the suggestion was awful. I felt sick. When the Dr came in and suggested chemo, I think my jaw hit the floor. How was that going to make her feel better? She didn’t even have cancer. After 2 rounds of chemo, a blood transfusion, 1 year of meds and 18 months of regular/weekly bloodwork I am happy to say that my now (nearly 13 year old) best friend is back to her outgoing and clumsy self.
There is a story about me and my pretty girl Millie from TAIPEI TAIWAN.
in 2012, i saw a lonely eyes on Pet rescue Facebook Fanpage.
I know she needs help but i was not sure if i can take care her by myself,
since I lived alone.
But I thought there’s never a day that I would be ready to have a dog unless I try
At that time she already 6 years old , we all know nobody want a adult big dog.
‘Lets go home’ that is what i told her when we see each other at first time.
After that, there is an angel in my life
When i feel sad she always stay by my side and give me a hug.
She smile like an angel that always made my day!!
When summer we go to beach or swimming in the pool.
When spring we go to see the flower in the mountain
We always do everything together.
Now she is 10, we still hug, walk , chill everyday!!
Thanks ADDITION pet food to give her the healthy body, hope there is another 10 years.
And thanks my dear girl Millie , you give my a better life!!
