Rescue is so bitter sweet :-( It is with such a sad and heavy heart that I must announce that Gertie passed peacefully in her sleep just hours ago :-( We rescued Gertie on 5/14/17 and at the tender age of 13-14 years old, she suffered with mammary cancer :-( She rallied around with treatment and went on to enjoy a year and a half of knowing only love and kindness and how much her life mattered. Gertie was not feeling well so we rushed her to emergency in the wee hours of Sunday morning and they actually said, though she seemed painful, she appeared to be ok. We immediately took her to our vets that morning and she tested positive for Pancreatitis and her blood work looked great! We gave her sub Q's, treated her, sent her home where she was doing fine and then our foster was devastated to find her lifeless :-(

Our thoughts and prayers are with her loving foster family during this very sad and heart breaking time. Tonight the skies will light up with a brand new shining star as the heaven and my Alley welcome home another brand new angel <3 RIP sweet girl, gone but never forgotten <3 Rescue is so bitter sweet :-( tw, LNPB
