We thought we'd give everyone an update on Shorty, only it's not the one we were hoping to share.
It was decided this morning that Shorty's condition had deteriorated to the point where a trip to Veterinary Specialty Clinic was in order to insure her best shot at making a full recovery.
We need everyone to send her your best wishes, prayers, good juju, healing thoughts, major mojo, or whatever you've got that might help this sweet girl to recover.
CDR took Shorty in knowing she was used as a breeding machine. One look at her and you wonder just how many litters this poor girl produced. They pulled her teeth out so she couldn't defend herself against the nonstop onslaught of males needed to impregnate her.
Shorty was bred over and over and over again.
And inspite of all the shitty things she's had to endure, Shorty is the sweetest baby you will ever meet. She is beat up and struggling to survive right now. We hope she senses that her luck has changed and there is nothing but love coming her way for the rest of her days. We hope that she has enough fight left in her to want to survive.
We won't even start to talk about puppy mills and backyard breeders. That is a conversation for another day.
If any of you could forgo a cup of coffee this week and throw us a small donation, we will be eternally grateful. Two days of care will run approximately $3500.00. We will not give up on her as long as she still has fight left in her frail little body.

Totally digging these new benches in my neighborhood. Maybe if I’m lucky a cute guy will come sit next to me and ask me out. 💞
Mom, will you please let me have a piece of that pizza? 🍕
