Bess is a pretty amazing girl with an interesting story. The shelter called and said they have an old, fat dog who needs *hospice* care. I asked what that meant. She didn’t have any specified disease, she just was lethargic and not moving around very well. Of course I said yes. I don’t see *older and weightier* as a death sentence.
She came prancing into the yard ready to do pole dancing. Her tail was up and wagging. She was pretty shaggy and a big girl to be sure. Took her to the spa and she came back gorgeous. Took her to the vet who did a very thorough exam and said, she is actually in good health. The shelter said she is ten, but we think she is younger. Joints are a little creaky but we suspect that is from lying around. And she is getting more active evry day.
She LOVES going walking, loves being in a home. I posted a video of her learning to play with the other dogs. It made me cry. This is actually why I do rescue. She watched and watched and then said, *me, I can do that!*
She is losing weight, her legs are getting stronger, and she a darling.
