Sponsor Animal Update: Victoria
Victoria: 3rd Quarter 2012
Victoria is due for her echocardiogram in two weeks, so we will let you know how that turns out next quarter. We are all hoping that her mitral valve disease has not progressed. She recently had another ear infection. She had severe ear infections and teeth and gums infected when she came in from the puppy mill three years ago. One of the ear canals is narrower after many years of neglect at the puppy mill, so Victoria’s family has to be sure to clean her ears often so they do not get infected again. She had another dental cleaning and two more teeth had to be pulled. Poor thing, so much for her to go through in such a short life. We estimated she is over eight years old. It is hard to believe that it has been three years since we rescued her from the puppy mill. The family says she has greatly enriched their lives. She is such a ham! Any event that is required for one of our Sponsor Pets to be present, you will be sure to see Victoria. She is the “Belle of the Ball.” She is the center of attention, and her tail wags with shear delight when people want to pet her. Thank you Lauraine for loving her as much as you do! We can see she is a happy dog when she is with you.
