We had quite a few adoptions that I would like to catch up on. So let's go!!! A week and a half ago we had a pretty special adoption. Let me tell you the story. Last November we got a note from a family we had adopted a dog to. Unfortunately , Sasha , had lost her battle with aspergillosis. I looked this up and found it is a common mold. Generally it doesn't do anything, but in a dog with a compromised immune system...the results can and in her case, were fatal. Dogs that we take in from animal control already have a disadvantage...we don't know how long they have been living on the streets, what they've been eating, or what diseases they have acquired. Sasha's eyes were attacked and were surgically removed, she was on every anti-fungal to control the growth. She adjusted to the loss of sight , but over time the fungus couldn't be controlled and and with it growing on her spine and brain, and her being in such pain, they and their vet decided to make that hard decision to put her to sleep.
They had decided to come to Houston in June , when their three girls were out of school. The family also decided to take two dogs this time!! We temperament tested a few dogs and the two that stood out were Lucy Lou and Lanny. They played and played together....no problems with these two. The next weekend the family drove in from San Antonio to pick up their new kids!!! I know they will never forget Sasha, but they have given a wonderful home to two deserving dogs!!
