A New Chapter for Two Older Mini’s

On Thursday, we picked up the mini’s – a new chapter in their lives has begun! When it was time to transport them to the rescue, I told Cricket and Billy that they were going on an adventure. They walked right onto the trailer. I felt a bit of sadness – they were leaving behind the only…

COOKIE – LETTING GO

I apologize for not sending out an update during the past few days, but it’s been tough. Letting Cookie go was more than difficult and accepting that she is gone is just as hard. Some history – Cookie returned to us from an adoption a few years ago with a sore on her left ear that…

Cookie’s Eye – Not Good News

Earlier this year, Cookie appeared to be depressed – she just wasn’t herself. With her history of cancer, well, I was just concerned.

February 12th, 2017 Cookie’s eye is worse. Dr. Mangan will be checking it tomorrow when he comes to hopefully, remove the lavage from Magic’s eye. Almost three years ago, Dr. Mangan performed surgery on Cookie at UF when she had cancer.  He did a great job.  He had to remove much of her lower left…
