My Little Angel
I first saw little Alize's photo on a website for a high kill shelter in Kansas City. She had been picked up as a stray and subsequently tested positive for heart worms. Because of that, no one wanted her. She looked so tiny and so lonely. Her photo touched my heart, and I knew I wanted to save her life.
When Alize arrived in rescue, we discovered that she also had a urinary infection and bladder stones that were so huge that they filled her bladder and gave her a funny little gait. But I loved her from the moment I saw her!
She spent over a month with me --- going through her heart worm treatment and then recovering from surgery to remove the bladder stones. Through it all, she was a fighter and she had the sweetest personality. You would never have known the pain she was in. Then she was adopted by Marie, and I knew that she was set for life. She was healthy, and she would have a great forever home.
Yesterday she was diagnosed with pneumonia, and last night she died. I guess her tiny little body just couldn't fight anymore. To say that I am heartbroken is an understatement. I love this little girl like I love my own dogs. RIP sweet little Alize. You were loved, and you will always be in my heart!
