Mildred showed up as a “stray” at a big shelter, as so many do. She was very very thin, her coat was terrible with lots missing from flea allergy dermatis. She had hyperextended ankles, arthritic knees, and a mammary mass. And she seems to be deaf. Under all that, a really beautiful dog with a lovely temperament. After a bout with kennel cough she has moved into her ODH home and started settling in. We’ll work on treating all her old-dog issues and keep her as comfortable as possible. Meanwhile, she loves snuggling up and has become a happy member of the family – just what we want.
Update: Mildred enjoyed her new l life and soaked up all the love and attention with her family. Finally, her age and physical issues became too much, and her family said good-bye – to a very wonderful, loving dog.
