excerpt from May 1, 2018 eblast:
We've named her May-Bea…as in, "Marna, can you take this little beagle too?"
and then I say, "I dunno…MAYBE!"
But of course, maybe changed quickly to "Yes, we will!"
so now May-Bea is short for "May Beagle"!
Once again, we jumped
out of the plane without a parachute. We had to. May-Bea has severe bi-lateral Cherry Eye that is causing her great discomfort.
She must wear a cone at all times or she will literally scratch her eyes out. It's heartbreaking. She needs medical attention
as soon as possible.
Here's what we know about May-Bea…
She's a smaller beagle too like Quill. She's approximately 6-8 years old. The shelter
believes they may know the owner but they have clearly dumped her due to the health issue. They've not bothered to claim her.
And they've not bothered to confirm she ever belonged to them so we don't even know her real name.
Maybe that's for the best. A new start for May-Bea.
She's another polite little beagle that's fearful
of strangers at first but easily swayed with a loving touch and a yummy treat! She especially enjoyed tossing a toy in the
air during her assessment! Although she doesn't engage in play with other dogs, she's happy to walk nicely with them side
by side. There are no cats to test her with at this shelter so we don't know her reaction to them, although she will meet
the resident cats at our vet hospital soon enough.
May-Bea arrives at our vets tomorrow night!
