BHRR's Journey's fecal test came back today. She is also now battling roundworms. We were already proactively deworming her and now we shall just extend the course to 5 days SID and then repeat in two weeks and then do another fecal.

Poor wee thing. All of these medical conditions that have just been making her feel so terrible and how she has managed to survive and also be the sweetest thing in temperament; is a miracle!

My heart is completely invested in her….hook, line and sinker. SHE is sooooooooooooooooo special and what a doll! NOT a mean bone in her body; beginning to 'sass' me if I am late for her meals and I understand her 'bluff' so much more in re: to the small barking and growling in fear.

She would never want to hurt anyone and it was her defensive mechanism to try and protect herself. This I knew but what I am only beginning to understand is how soft and sweet she really is and how much she does not have anything other than sheer love and gentleness in her heart plus spirit. There is no 'edge' to this girl at all. Nothing other than sugar with a dabbling of spice! 🙂

She will now lean into my hands when I go to pet her through her crate and as of last night; she has been given more freedom to walk about and and explore(she likes the kitchen the best! LOL) for about 10 minutes before she had to go lay down again due to her becoming tired.

TODAY, is the first day that she has also not had an accident in her crate, solid BM's are happening! She always hated having an accident in her crate and would try and stay out of  it and what a milestone for her to have her body becoming strong enough to make it outside.

She does not want to stay out for long. She is very worried about being left out and we are still going out with her.

Have I said lately, HOW much I am so enamoured with her? 🙂

I know that I have said this before and I shall say it again; I am not above or below begging and pleading for the animals in need. AND I am doing so now, so close to XMAS; yet I am asking on my knees if need be; for people to consider donating to her vast medical bills.

ALL I can give you in turn at this time; is my deepest and most heartfelt and sincerest of thanks along with those of BHRR's Journey; for she would have died out there; and soon. Be it from a car hitting her; starvation or her wounds or a coyote attack or even from some person shooting her; she would have died and it would not have been long before it happened. There is nothing to her body right now….absolutely nothing but skin and bones. There is not even a lot of hair.
