Adopted A Senior Lady

I love seniors and was really missing having an old hound around, especially all the quirks and special needs that come with the oldies. When I saw the mention by the foster director of my group of a 14 (and 8 months) y.o. being returned on our board I called/emailed immediately. I'll take her!!!! She was returned on May 21 st and went straight into the hospital for tests, etc. She had not been very well taken care of and had a endless list of physical/medical problems. I didn't care, when she was released I picked her up on the 24th. Within a few days I had rearrranged my schedule, my house and my life for her and was so happy to do so. I won't go into all the medical stuff but she was going to have a long road ahead of her. I told my group that I knew she didn't have long and that I'd be happy with 5 months and that hopefully within 5 weeks or so she'd be in as good as shape as possible for her age, etc. I pampered, spoiled and cherished her every minute of every day. Then suddenly without warning she was gone, most likely from a heart attack on June 7th. The hurt is NO less than it was when I've lost "kids" in the past that were with me for years. I know she knew I adored and loved her!!!!

Rest and Run Free in Pain Free Peace My Dearly Beloved Old Lady Ginger. I miss you so much.

:cry1 I am so sorry :cry1 We adopted our Star when she was 14, and like your girl, had not been well taken care of. We had 10 precious weeks with our wonderful Star-baby and when she left us, it hurt no less than if we'd had her for 10 years.

 

Thank you for letting Ginger know love and good care for the last days of her life :bighug

Bless you for giving her joy when she needed you most, and she is now running at the bridge pain free, knowing she was loved unconditionally.

I completely understand how much this hurts. Such a shock when you were all ready to get her fit and give her a few months quality time, but remember, if you fell in love with her so quickly, she probably did the same with you. She had only two weeks, but I bet she was in heaven. Bless you both.

And because of that, she was able to cross the Bridge with the biggest smile on her face! Run free, sweet Ginger :angelwings

What a wonderful and unselfish gift you gave her. She had the gift of unconditional love for the final two weeks of her life. She went to bridge happy and knowing she was loved. You had a very special mom sweet Ginger. Hugs to you for being so wonderful to this little girl. Godspeed Ginger. :grouphug:f_red

You gave her your heart and your time. All hounds should be so lucky to find a mom like you. I am sorry you didn't have more time together but it was enough for sweet Ginger to know how much you love her.

 

Run free sweet Ginger, laugh and play until the day you and your mom are together again. :f_pink
