VISIT AT DR DAMIANI CLINIC

Our sweet VITA was escorted to Dr Damiani clinic for health test and new blood work. Our volunteer Angy drove her and Dr Longo was there to assist to our little sick VITA.

Results, waiting.

OUR L.A. ANGEL(S)

Once again, she came to visit us! A wonderful AWL supporter, and a true friend, she flew in to have a couple of days vacation. From her vacation resort she took a taxi 2 hours to come and visit our hospice.

Our wonderful, loyal animal supporter and friend Tracey. All the way from Los Angeles, she wanted to see us. Despite our selfish desire to have her with us longer, and in our sadness, she could only stay one day.

But what a woman! How many would do this?

She also was a lovely courier. Her ex-husband Craig Kleber, donated $2000 dollars, and Tracey brought the check.

(The money is in memory of Robyn Wire, per Craig’s wish)


We love to have Tracey here, everyone loves her from Olivia and Max to all the hospice animals, to of course me.

We thank you Tracey for your loyal, loving support. You embody true Amore and also Craig.

ANOTHER BUSY DAY TOGETHER WITH AWL

0

Nicolle and Jason who foster all the 9 puppies linked up with me at Dr Damiani’s clinic for a health check.

All 4 boys and 5 girls were very healthy.

Dr. Longo and Ass. Roberta listen to their hearts, checked mouth and walk. The fur balls are only 5-6 weeks so we are waiting with the vaccinations.

Then Kiki Joy got her bandage taken off, and now she “only” has an infected ear. She is such a good girl, 15 years old.

Zara was arguing with other dogs on the other side of the fence, and her foot got caught. She pulled so hard that her toes needed to have plenty of stitches. My oh my!

Our sweet heart Spencer (girl) got her stitches removed after the sterilization. Now she is ready for a loving forever home. She is like a cat. When you lift her up she loves to stand on your shoulders. And in bed she curls up like a cat. The children adores her, and so do I.

And the last client of the day. Shiloh had gotten a “secret object” in her paw it was swollen and painful, but she was a trooper.
I can tell you that AWL is not still for one minute, always on missions. That’s Amore!

FRANK WE ARE WITH YOU ALL THE WAY

Frank did not do very well yesterday so I drove him in to see Dr Longo at Dr Damiani clinic. He was in pain and discomfort and still is his body having some infection from the past.
He got sedated and his scar could be washed really well.
Nicolle and her husband Jason were kind to stop by and help. Since I had two other clients waiting in my car.

And also needed a help wrapping Frank up. I was glad when Dr Longo agreed with me that Frank should stay over night.
It is a painful road, but many of us are not used to see behind the veterinarian walls. But this is the reality. Thank you for all your support, and still we need more donations for Frank so we can give him the very best treatment that he deserves. That’s Amore!

CONTESSA OUR NEW CLIENT

0

You could read about Contessa on one earlier blog. Contessa is now at our hospice recovering. She gets to sleep inside, on a bed and with her own pillow; fantastic nutritious food with extra vitamins for old, abused dogs. She can be alone and rest. No longer in a 400 dog shelter, in a cage on a concrete floor were no one sleeps. Shelters here are like prisons! As an inmate, you have to stand guard: over your bed, your food — others can come and attack you–they want your space.

She was breathing heavy at the veterinarian clinic, but that is understandable too. The shelter, as horrible as it is, is her only safety zone she knows of, she doesn’t understand the future, only the past.

Now since Thursday she is up on her legs walking and have met the other hospice kids, and it went very well. Calm and easy!

However, her blood test didn’t come out great. She is anemic, and her liver test is lousy.

Monday, we have scheduled an x-ray and ultra sound appointment at 16.30 to see how her inner body looks like. If she is full of cancer, we will have to take another direction.

She is not in pain, probably some discomfort, but we are giving her eye drops at least 5 times a day to keep the “eye” moistened, and thus not too annoying for her. It is how it looks like that gives other people “pain” its ugly and its nasty. When we see something that looks horrible we want to take it away, it hurts our stomach, our inner feelings.

We are not keeping clients that are in pain alive just for the sake of being alive, that is against our beliefs. But we believe in giving one a chance if the there is hope and no undue suffering. Together with experienced veterinarians, we decide what is best for our clients, even if it looks ugly. That’s Amore!

Thank you Dr Longo and Dr Alexandria, also want to thank Martina and Pio.
