You certainly took excellent care of them and gave her lots of love.
A very unique dog achieved yet another amazing milestone on November 28. Sasha, by name, celebrated her 12th birthday on that joyous day. Sasha, who was born with hydrocephalus, a cleft lip, and a cleft palate, counts every day as a joy.
Since her birth, Sasha has been under the competent supervision of Marie DeMarco, a special needs cat rescuer. Her rescue group, FURRR 911, is an acronym for Felines Urgently Rescued, Rehabilitated, and Rehomed.
Despite the fact that Sasha was a dog, she immediately felt at home there. DeMarco shares: She has been a warrior from the beginning and has faced many obstacles in her little existence.
It’s a reason for happiness because the teeny small pooch has recently gained weight and is now just over two pounds. Puppies with [cle.ft palates] frequently develop upper respiratory infections, and Sasha was no exception.
She was losing weight, had a [f.e.v.er], nasal congestion, vomited, and an infected eye. Sasha, who just weighed a little over a pound, couldn’t afford to lose weight! She continued to be lethargic, unsteady on her feet, and hesitant to eat.
DeMarco went Sasha back to her neurologist out of worry that [hyd.rocephalus] was to blame for her issues. As soon as Sasha complied with the specialist’s recommendations, her recovery started. By the time she became 12 weeks old, she was back to her feisty, cuddling self!
Sasha is a very quiet and reserved dog, according to DeMarco. She likes to perch near to or above my foot. And even though they are bigger than her, she likes to cuddle with her feline buddies from other rescues!
Sasha is in the midst of a challenging path with no promises, but she is also surrounded by a lot of love, dedication, and support. Sasha showed that she is a warrior with a strong will to live despite her inherited flaws and medical condition.
In March 2018, Sasha crossed the Rainbow Bridge not long after becoming six months old. She gave her human, canine, and feline pals love and joy throughout her short life.
I appreciate your kindness and caring for this poor vulnerable animal. Little one, fly high across the Rainbow Bridge in God’s lovely garden knowing how much you are loved. You are a saint!
