My CWD Lady is the bestest!!!

September 3, 2019

Lady has had a rough last few years. In 2015 she was attacked by another dog and had to go through 2 surgeries. Then in 2017 she had surgery to remove a nasty Soft Tissue Sarcoma on her rear left foot.  In 2018 it came back, Stage III. So, we opted to remove the leg to save her life. Her eyes were so bright, there was no denying she had so much life still in her!!! Let me tell you that even the night after her amputation, she followed Henry, the vet tech around the clinic (Thanks Henry for your kind support of my girl), and on the second night she followed Sam around too!!! (Thank you Sam for your love and kindness!!).

It’s been a year and she still has a light in her eyes and the love of her big red ball!!! We are now on the quest for a cart for her. I have chosen Eddie’s Wheels and hopefully we will be ordering today!

Give your furbabies hugs and kisses from Lady and I!!!

Lady’s tripawd adventure

August 11, 2018

Hi everyone! This is the story about my girl Lady. I adopted Lady from SPCA International. Lady is a retired working dog worked in Iraq. While she always found everything she was looking for in her tests, she stopped really wanting to work – “she lost the will to work”. She continuously looked for shade and would rather be playing then actually working. So the kennel master of the company she was working for decided it was best that she become a pet. SPCA International was able to relocate her from Iraq to Michigan where she now lives. I am so thankful to SPCAI and Terry Crisp for allowing me to adopt Lady. She is such an amazing girl!

She is such a fun dog! She loves to play ball and always kicks the ball to you. You can even ask her to kick it to you and she will!

I currently and have had for the past 2 months then feeding Lady Ziwi Peak, I add coconut oil, black seed oil, CBD oil, Golden Paste, and other supplements to help try to eliminate the cancer as much as possible. Unfortunately this did not work, I had just started the ketogenic diet and supplements and the cancer was too aggressive. She ended up having a very large tumor, close to the size of two of my fists put together, and was taken into surgery very quickly after her ultrasound and x-rays exams were completed. The tumor doubled in size in less than a week. It had exploded twice, once on the morning before surgery.

I am extremely thankful to my family for their support and to Lisa and Rambo of Gizmo’s Gift for their continued support of Lady and retired working dogs like her!
