Anyway - good news!
Thank you kitchenelf, you got me wondering! After all this excitement, I noticed one of the growths on her back had been cut off. I just wonder if when they shaved it off or whatever that this hurt so bad and the dog got stiff? I know I would feel pain if it happened to me. See! Dogs have to endure so much without response. It isn't fair!! The groomer did say he was foaming at the mouth. I am just going to try to get past all this and as you all say love him they way I should. I am getting more crazy about dogs than I ever was. Used to like small babies but dogs seem so much more helpless. Like I said, crazy. In my opinion, anyone who has experienced pain from people, tends to find hope in an animal. The nursing home I go to has those people acting so different when the dogs are around. The dogs probably give them love they need.
My neice has over 10 dogs now. 4 are her own and rest are fosters. Most of the fosters have medical problems or just too old and people throw them away. Talking to her only makes me wonder how she can do it. Such abuse would drive me wild. She tells me she can only ask her husband to accept so much and then she has to refuse some that need care. Once you get started doing something like that I don't think you can ever stop. She has been doing this long time and now has so many that she really never planned on. I wonder what her neighbors think. I pray they are dog lovers.
I sincerely appreciate all your thoughts and prayers. I know they helped in many many ways. I hope this kindness is returned triple fold to all of you.
