may not be all dolled up yet and ready for the Silver Screen, but we like her just fine. She's our kinda girl!
And soon, she's going to be part of Our Gang!
Some of you may have seen the posting a Good Samaritan shared on our FB page a week ago.
They had found this poor old girl and brought her to TORONTO ANIMAL SERVICES.
They were worried that if nobody claimed her, she would be put
down given how old and sick she appeared.
We told her that if
this sweet old dog was in the hands of our friends at Toronto Animal Services, she was in GOOD hands.
Here's the proof…
Upon examination by the shelter's veterinary team, it was clear
that this old stray beagle had a bad eye. The pressure reading in that one eye soared through the roof. She was clearly in
pain. The eye needed to be removed as soon as possible. Given her estimated age and condition, she was definitely geriatric.
In other words, not so adoptable to the general public. And so our friends at Toronto Animal Services called us about her.
They also made an incredibly generous offer. If we could take her into our care, they were prepared to do the surgery to both
spay her and remove the unsalvageable eye. We didn't hesitate.
Darla is undergoing
her surgery TODAY.
We decided to name her Darla after the feisty little character
from Little Rascals!
On behalf of Darla, we have some thanking to do…
We thank the one who found her and brought her safely to the shelter.
And as always, we thank the good people at Toronto Animal Services for going above and beyond the call
of duty for the love of these animals.
We also thank our friend Catherine at SHEBA'S HAVEN
for having the room to foster our Darla for us
and for having the biggest beagle-lovin' heart!!!
I'm sure Jude Paw will be the perfect
gentleman when Darla arrives, assuming the role of the smitten Alfalfa to OUR Darla.
Here's to COMPASSION
Here's to TEAMWORK
Here's to LOVE!!!
