I lost my job and previous old dog within 3 months of each other. I trawled every rescue site I could find daily.
About a week after I brought home my Pet Rescue silky puppy she started throwing up violently.
My sponsor said there was a parvovirus outbreak. She almost died.
Two years later I was overseas for a family wedding, leaving her with her best friend. She was rushed to SASH with a paralysis tic. I cried throughout my holiday.
When I returned I was told that if she did not eat or drink the next day she would die. She drank.
She was a delight to everyone who met her, including residents who didn’t like dogs. She was the most important thing in my life.
10 years later, I'm in the middle of a renovation and stressed to my eyeballs. My routine had gone out the window and Mopsy did not receive regular treatments.
She collapsed with a paralysis tic. She was rushed to an emergency hospital and the next morning I had to decide either
put her down or on $3000/day ventilator.
After $30,000 from my superannuation she is still the most important thing in my life.
