I didn't get to meet the family who took her but the weird thing is that their last name is Nuņez also. Wow! Who would have thought. The lady who took Sam is my husband's co-worker with 3 teens. The kids really liked Sam. Who wouldn't?

I've been extremely sad missing her. My kids seem to be okay. They didn't spend as much time with her as I did so I get to feel most of the loss. We will stay in contact with the other Nuņez family to check on Sam periodically. Seems our role with pets is mostly to foster them. We're just glad we got her healthy and strong.

Dogs don't get worms from eating their own poop unless they have the worms themself. Or their area is infected.

I'm glad you took this abused pup in for the short time you had her. And sad for her.

Give us this day our daily bacon.

She looks so good Dina - you did a great job!!!! For future reference...there are pills you can buy at Pet Smart and various places to stop them from eating their own poop. Some dogs just do that and I was told it is almost inherent as that is what the mother does to keep her "house" clean for her babies. Don't know if that's true or not but it did make sense. I gave our dog the pills and eventually she just stopped. It was also my understanding that they don't "get" anything from doing that except really bad breath
