    I am fostering Shine.  He is simply amazing.  We have him on something called AHCC that is a holistic remedy for liver disease and  

    it seems to be helping him.  He is a little thin but has great energy and is what I call "stupid happy".  He is excited about everything... 

    going out in the yard, coming in from the yard, food, toys, treats, car rides, belly rubs, walks at the park etc.  He acts like the thing  

    he is doing at the moment is the best thing ever!  He is still reactive to other dogs if they get in his space but he tends to ignore them if they keep a respectful distance.  As much as I love him, I am still hopeful that someone will come along and see what I see in him and fall in love and adopt him.  He will make someone a wonderful and loyal companion.  I will try to take another video of him soon and post to our facebook page and update everyone

    Eleventh Hour Rescue

    "their only crime is they are out of time"

     

    Background

    After being chained in an alley in Harlem for over 6 years he was finally rescued.  To watch him run in the yard unchained for the first time in life gave us a glimpse at what pure joy was like.  He was ecstatic!  If running was joy he discovered that toys were bliss.  He has been such a happy, happy guy and we have had the privilege of watching him blossom.

    Unfortunately, sometimes we do not always get the happy ending we were hoping for.  A few weeks ago we noticed he was losing weight.  We upped his food but it did not make a difference.  He has been to the vets and has had urine analysis, a fecal, complete blood panel, and xrays and finally last week an ultrasound.  The news we received was not what we wanted to hear.  His liver is enlarged as well as his spleen, his GI tract is thickening and his lymph nodes in that area are swollen.  The doctor suspects cancer...and liver cancer is what she feels he has.  We are devastated.  To finally be free and to now have to fight another battle that he will ultimately lose is just not fair.  In the mean time he is happy and does not know he is sick.  He still runs through the yard with a toy in his mouth smiling.  

     

    All we can do is pray for a miracle or two for him.  We still hope there is someone who will adopt him and make him their own and we hope that he will be able to enjoy his new found freedom for a long time to come.   Please consider making a donation towards his care.

    I no longer use language that accepts the current concept of animals as property, commodities and/or things. Rather than refer to myself and others as "owners" of animals, I now refer to myself and others as "guardians" of our animal companions and to animals as "he" or "she" rather than "it". I urge you to do the same.
