And Time…is frozen
The Story of Our Life
We give him HOPE
spend all we have (all you give)
Story of Our Life
(Our Beagle Rescue version of One Direction's "Story of My Life")
We raised an incredible amount of money for our beagles at Woofstock. All in thanks to YOU. Without the miracle that is YOU, we couldn't have covered the multitude of medical emergencies we've endured already
this year. We're still not quite out of the woods yet. We never really are. It's the story of our life. Because the reality
is, it costs a lot to save a dog's life and we're here to save as many as we can year after year.
I want to thank you, not only for your life-saving support, but for always cheering us on. Your positive comments whenever
we post about a new rescue case means a lot to us. When we told you about Jude, a couple of you hoped this little beagle wouldn't
have any serious health problems for a change. But we knew that wouldn't be the case. That's why we took him. We're here for
the beagles that need us the most. We always have been.
Jude has undergone his initial exam. Some things are encouraging while others are not. Jude has a significant heart murmur,
likely Grade Level 4 or 5. The highest is 6. Nevertheless, he shows no signs of heart failure. Jude also has periodontal disease.
Dentistry is never cheap. But the most concerning is the mass on his back end. If it proves to be something more sinister
than a fatty lump, we could be faced with a tumour too tricky to remove given the location. It may very well be better to
leave it and keep him happy as long as we can.
First things first - we'll run a full senior blood profile, including Heartworm test, and do a fine needle aspirate of the
mass. Once we know what we're dealing with, we can then determine the perfect foster home for this lovely little cherub.
Jude will be costly, but that's par
for the course. Money comes and money goes. But the financial rollercoaster ride is worth it when we're able to save a life
like Jude's. One kiss, one wag, one smile from him and, you guessed it, we'd risk everything to save him.
It's the Story of our Life.
Endless thanks to those who keep the
BOB story going year after year!
