Queen, abused and discarded, left to die on the fields

Help us Save Lives.. SHARE!Share on FacebookTweet about this on TwitterShare on RedditPin on PinterestEmail this to someone

I have spent a large part of my life away from my country, Spain. I left as a young teenager, although we always had adopted animals I wasn’t an animal activist then. It hasn’t been until my return, 20 years after I left that I found about the reality of the animals here…

I wish I never knew.

Meet Queen.. she belongs to one of the world’s most unique breeds, the Ibizan Hound, a dog descending of ancient breed. One of the most majestic animals, funny, loyal, energetic, a joyful marvelous dog…

Look at Queen… a young female dog that has been used, abused, exploited in every single way a dog could ever be… and when she couldn’t be used anymore she was discarded, like a old rag. Queen was brought to us by a small group of rescuers that felt couldn’t do anything for her.

We took the case… rushed Queen to our clinic and started performing a full range of tests, from scratch, real detective work to find out what had reduced her to this pitiful state.

We did a full radiological study and a mielography, there was no fracture in her back.

But what we found was an extremely high level of Leishmania that at the last stage has developed into Polyneuropathy… This is why she couldn’t stand up!!!!. The hunters used her, worked her to death and when she fell sick they dumped her on the fields to die… 

The spinal cord is intact, she’s in good spirits, she’s very alert, she’s eating ravenously… I’m confident with the right treatment, and lots of time and patience we can save her life.

Before Queen arrived to us two vets suggested euthanasia… we intend to show them, and eveyrone that there is another way to deal with a case like Queen… a harder way perhaps, but the right way.

Before you turn the page and move on with your life and obligations please give Queen one last look… She’s is everything we fight for, the very reason for Let’s Adopt! existence..

The treatment will be hard, difficult and extremely long… but we are committed to save Queen’s life and to fight for her all the way.

Would you help her?

Please, if you can, help us save Queen today…

 

Many thanks!

Viktor@myletsadopt.com

We know times are tough and many are struggling right now, if you are not in a position to contribute please, at least help us save Queen’s life by SHARING this blog on Facebook, Twitter, you name it… anywhere you can… please.

Many many thanks… as usual we will provide personal updates to our donors as well as through our Facebook Page, Let’s Adopt! Global

UPDATE February 10

Good morning..

Need to send you an update on Queen’s condition..
Her situation is grave. Her worn out body hasn’t been reacting to the treatment. Her albumina levels are extremely low and nothing we’ve done so far seems to be working. She’s crashing.
Her owner allowed her to decay to the point of no return. I can’t possibly understand how someone can watch a dog crumble to this point without doing anything about it, but that’s what they did.
We are doing all we can to save her life, but sometimes, all we can, is not enough. We got her too late.
In a few minutes we will be carrying out a blood transfusion and give her body a few hours to react to it.
If you pray, this is the time to pray. If you don’t, please at least keep Queen in your thoughts this morning.

Many thanks for being there for Queen… How I wish she could know we are not the only ones here with her. How I wish she could know you…

Update February 10 21.30 hrs

Queen has left us.

She now runs in fields of gold…

You’ll remember me when the west wind moves
Upon the fields of barley
You’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we walk in fields of gold

So she took her love
For to gaze awhile
Upon the fields of barley
In his arms she fell as her hair came down
Among the fields of gold

Will you stay with me, will you be my love
Among the fields of barley
We’ll forget the sun in his jealous sky
As we lie in fields of gold

    What, in the name of everything that is holy, have people done to this poor girl?! My gut clenches at the thought of her pain and helplessness. I cannot even fathom what has happened to the other dogs picture, here. Queen, you are about to become the beautiful face of compassion and hope for so many dogs suffering at the hands of man. May all of the healing powers in the Universe sooth your body and your spirit, dear girl. You are loved.

  3. Roseanne says:

    I literally bombarded internet world with Queen’s case. I shared it on my personal as well on my official page concerning animal rights and send her case and video to other animal lovers in Greece and Spain. Wish for the best. She’s a soul in pain but with much love and a lot of effort I am sure she will start a new life. Keep up with the good work!

  13. Nina says:

    What kind of culture burns dogs alive like Tidus, and breaks the legs of dogs and leave them to die a slow painful death in a field? I’d like to take these f-era out and use them for target practice.

  14. Jean Foreman says:

    How can people be so cruel, it broke my heart to see her like this, but I am so happy that you are trying to bring her back so that she can live a happy life with somebody who will love her. I only wish I could help financially but unfortunately I can’t but if my circumstances ever change you will be the first person I would help so you can save all these unfortunate animals, Thank you for being there for them xx

    Thank you for not giving up on this beautiful animal

  23. Lauren says:

    I remember visiting family in Fuertaventura when I was young, and seeing about 20 ibizan hounds stuffed into a tiny cage in the heat with ticks in their ears and I couldn’t believe that the animals were treated so badly there. There was a stray who followed me back to the house one day and I gave her some food and water and named her Sahara. My uncle then adopted her when I left the country and she lived a long happy life with them.

  24. Nancy Mattingly says:

    saying prayers for you little girl..im so sorry little one…many hugs that you recover!

  25. Janice Berwick says:

    For this poor soul I just have no words, I’ve seen so much suffering on this page and I’ve seen much success. But this poor girl, I don’t know what to say, I have tears as I type these words but wow the depths that humans will go scares me to the bone. I will pray for Queen like I’ve never prayed before, and if she makes it I know that there is hope…I’m sorry Viktor, I just have no words…

  26. Ana Chavez says:

    Tears flowing down my face, there are no words for this cruelty. Oh my Queen,prayers for you to live a beautiful life. Thank you Viktor…..

  27. rita says:

  45. Kevin Conroy says:

    Thank you so much for bringing this horror to light. You are to be blessed for your caring devotion to animals in such dire need of help. My heart goes out to Queen and you and your organization. I wish her a recovery, if that is possible. I believe she will triumph! Sending love and prayers your way. Shared on Facebook for exposure and support!

  46. Maryjane says:

  47. Tracy Lanning says:

    I wish for a miracle she deserves to be treated like a “Queen” for the rest of her days. Thank you to Vets & everyone who is helping her back on her feet. I worked for Animal Hospital of Whitfield Co. For many years @ seen alot of lives saved. Vets do not enough recognition for what they do. Cudos to your “other family doctor”. Bless y’all for what y’all do.

  48. Cindy Wylde says:

    Praying she makes it. So sad there are ppl out there that do this to sweet animals. God Bless You!! :)

  49. niehuus says:

    I would like to give more
    But money is tight for me this month

    5 dollar paid via paypal

  50. i am gob smacked that the country allows this to happen , they ought to hang there heads in shame , how can anyone thats got a heart beating in there body condone let alone do this to an animal that has worked diligently for them , asking only for love and respect , but getting neither , they aught to be hung up like they do there dogs , see how they feel , thankyou for giving your all to save this lovely dog ,and give her hugs and kisses from me , come on queenie sending healing thoughts your way xxx

  51. Working with the fate of grey/galgo and podenco’s since 1999, it still shocks me to see the horror man inflicts on animals that can not defend themselves. FIght Queen so you will know that there are good people that will show you love and affection. Betty, ‘mom’ of 20 old, ill and handicapped dogs (of which many greys and podencos).

  52. Samantha says:

    God please bless her and Viktor and all the other living creatures suffering animal cruelty in this world.

  53. Sandra Williams says:

    I,m crying so hard .I hope and pray that you can do everything for her. I don,t understand why people do this to animals. I have 5 cats and 2 dogs of my own and if any body would hurt them i guess i would just pay them back for the pain the inflected on my babys. I pray for you every day that god gave you a great heart for what your doing for these animals. Thank you so much for the greatest and biggest heart god has gave you.Sandra

  54. Frauke Petereit says:

    20 $ sind über paypal raus , Gott schütze Euch und all die armen Seelen !!!!!!

  55. Irene Vogel says:

    I wish the best for queen. You have a very kind heart. I had heard that Spain had a bad reputation for this reason. Please continue to make the world aware of this .They need to be held accountable. Loosing tourist $$$ may be one way to get their attention.

  56. anita says:

    who did this and what puni
    shment will they receive? i want to witness thier punish
    ent!!! what is your website i would rather donate ther thank for being queen’s angels God will bless you!!!!

  57. walter williams says:

    I hope and pray she will make a recovery! It breaks my hear and soul to see this horrific abuse. How anyone can or could do this to an innocent animal is so horrific. I am sickened by the amount of abuse any innocent animal suffers. I pray she will make it

  58. anita says:

    who did this and what puni
    shment will they receive? i want to witness thier punish
    ent!!! what is your website i would rather donate ther thank for being queen’s angels God will bless you!!!!

  59. Jay Moore says:

    I know a lot of you say you cannot afford to donate, but just $1 or 1 Euro or £1, it just means going without one small thing and all the $ and £ do mount up, we just have to keep this rescue going, no one else takes dogs on in these conditions, so have a little think please could you just make a small donation, I live on state pension, and have managed, told my dogs they have to have less treats for a while.

  60. Anonymous says:

    Just as I thought I’ve heard the worse case of animal cruelty another case appears, being an animal lover it makes me sick to the stomach that humans can treat animals like this how can they sleep at night, thank god queenie was saved just in time and appears to be doing well this little lady is a fighter as she shows us, dear dear queenie I pray that u continue your fight to survive xxxxx

  61. kate says:

    I sent 20 wish i could send more maybe next pay check thank you for helping her

  62. Anonymous says:

    It is tragic and painful. This ordinary fascism.

  63. Dawn Mello says:

    What in holy hell is wrong with these scumbags that hurt these animals. I would like to be alone in a room with them, a bat and 15 minutes. I know it doesn’t solve anything, well yes it does. One less abuser.

  64. jana dodge says:

    Thank god she has been rescued…God must have been looking out for her.WHY people choose to be so cruel to animals is beyond me. I wish we could have harsher laws for this and also I would wish for an eye for an eye punishment. People that abuse animals should stand in front of a firing squad!! I would love to pull the trigger!!! I pray she lives a long life and goes to a loving home.., thank you for saving her.

  65. Sharon Knauer says:

    SHARED but i cannot comment. i cannot stop crying when i look at her photo. no words
    there are NO WORDS for this.

  66. Letitia says:

    I am sickened by the treatment of these dogs. Is this torture and abandonment not illegal? What do Spaniards think of this brutality against these dogs? The photo of the hanging dogs is straight from the middle ages. I have contributed to Queen’s rehabilitation, but I am also disgusted at this sort of institionalized cruelty in a country that is supposedly civilized. I have infinite admiration for Victor and his colleagues who face the daily nightmare of their compatriots’ barbarism. Here’s to Queen’s survival and placement with loving owners.

  67. Geslina says:

    I have heard that spain is one of the worst countries for animal abuse and cruelty. Even at religious festivals, some poor critter will be sure to suffer horribly. But, sadly, I have seen dogs in this condition right here in the USA. My brother adopted a dumped hunting dog.

    I am so glad for Queen’s soft pillow to lay her head on, and for the love and care that I know she is now getting. I hope she has a speedy recovery.

  68. sonia says:

    sick to my stomach at such bastards

  69. sue hind says:

    So very sorry for this poor girl but thank you for all your hard work – so sorry but the only thing for it is hang the bastards that do this

  70. Verena says:

    I’m shocked… And happy that Queen is in good hands now. Donated and sent prayers!

  71. Sherry Jones says:

    This evil is every where. I cry so much and I pray, too. I wish we could save all of them. I hate thinking of the hurt and torture they go through. Government treats murderers better!!! I wish I could do more than pray and share. Hoping to be financially better soon so I can donate.

  72. PJ says:

    God is watching over you Queen. My hopes and prayers for a full recovery. I know you have a long road ahead of you but I truly believe you have the will to live. What happened to you is disgusting and the guilty should be given the same treatment you were.

  73. Kelley says:

    Please show this girl that there are good people in the world. And may the subhumans that did this die a slow painful death.

  74. helen says:

    this is where an eye for an eye needs to come in. lock them up, throw away they key and let those bastards rot in hell!!

  75. Gail Oldfield says:

    As with all cruel, sardistic, inhumane abuse it is at human hands, it makes me feel ashamed . I have adopted and support my local dogs home and will continue, thank goodness Queen found kind caring people to save her from what can only be imminent death

  76. Joanne says:

    Sending good vibes and prayers for strength and healing. I am praying so hard for you to make it through the night and strength for living in the days going forward. You are in great hands now, loved and away from harm, so fight with all you’ve got for the will to live. The team will elp you thru this awful time and it will be a memory as so many are praying for you. Rest now with Viktor — you are loved!!! <3

    i just saw queen i hope to god she makes it she looks a lovely dog bless her please update us on how she gets on xxx

  78. gladystames says:

    The Rescuers Truly Are Angles and if those poor abused animals speak I am sure they are saying words of love … My heart breaks when I see needless abuse when it is easy to call a rescue society to pickup their unwanted innocent pets, I wish their was some way to expose these evil people to give them shame!!! I must say ” what goes around comes around ” they will get their pain when they lest expect it, that is the way of the world!!! You do good you will get good back, vica versa!!!! I pray a lot for all the abused animals there seems to be all over the world God will be busy!!!

  79. Marvin Lumanglas says:

    The first pic, its spain’s most cruel kind of animal abuse, its called “PIANO PLAYING” i have already signed a hundreds of petition just to stop that cruelty. they hang up the dog in a tree, and the dog will reach for the ground that will looked like a dog playing a piano. For Queen, Thanks for saving her ;D

  80. Karen says:

    This made my stomach hurt when i saw this-I tried to save a cat a couple weeks ago that got hit. It was in the middle of the road so i got a towel from my car and picked him out of the road-he was still alive but breathing heavy. The people just blew by me yelling and beeping for me to get out of their way and some kids shouted “meow meow, roadkill” I was so pissed I yelled back that I wished it was them lying half-dead in the road. Not sure if the kitty made it but animal control took it an emergency clinic. I am still appalled by people who don’t have any compassion for animals. I am donating to Queen right now. I hope she recovers and has a great life-she certainly deserves it!!!!

  81. Debra Smith says:

    I am unfortunately and continually dismayed and disgusted by the depths people go to – animal abuse is a sure sign things are drastically wrong with us as humans. I am in despair at the suffering and so sad by what I see. I have such empathy for the animals and none for the people so much so that I worried about the person I will end up. A true animal lover and so glad there are many more of us out there. Bless you and I pray Queen will survive and find some enjoyment from life. ( and they call it the gift of the gods ) x

  82. Emily Campbell says:

    I am so appalled at the thought of someone doing this horrible thing to one of GODS creatures. They are put on this earth to love ,not to be used and thrown out like garbage. I only hope this terrible treatment of these beautiful animals will stop!! Please keep me updated on Queens condition . My heart goes out to her. Thank you Viktor you genuinely are an angel of mercy.Thank you for what you are doing . May GOD bless you

  83. I hate abuser people. God don’t like ugly Who ever hurting the animals it hurting GOD! I would like give this dog a home.

  84. christine says:

    I just want to know WHY some people have so much compassion for animals and others don’t have any at all????? :’( WHY, DEAR LORD, WHY? :’(

  85. Jacqueline Mann says:

    I cannot describe how I am feeling seeing this beautiful creature like this, those resposable must be found and hurt in some way a huge fine would be best as obviously they only care about money. Like someone else pointed out dogs give us unconditional love it’s a shame humans can’t treat dogs with the same respect . I can only afford a small donation but if it helps Queen that’s all that matters … thankyou Viktor for doing this I wish there were more people like you in this cruel world.

  86. Val says:

    Even in her present condition, Queen is beautiful! Bless you Viktor and your wonderful team for having the compassion to give these forgotten babies another chance when so many would not bother.

  87. Tracy says:

    I would love to give her a home!!!

  88. Robbie says:

    Rest easy now little Queen. May you know the sunlight on your face and euphoria in your heart for all eternity!

  89. Karin says:

    RIP Queen

  90. Theresa Garbatino says:

    I pray this precious girl fights hard through thus critical time and is blessed with amazing days to come

  91. Mazie McNeal says:

    This is such sad news. You both tries so hard. I was so hopeful she would live to know love. Thank you for all you did. I am unable to get over such cruelty and such a fantastic beauty is gone.

  92. christine says:

    This should NOT go unpunished!!! Owners need to be set an example!!!! :’( RIP angel! We failed you! :’(

  93. Pat Evans says:

    So sorry that Queen didn’t make it. After the horrible life she had I am so glad she. Knew love and kindness before she passed. The person who did that to her should be put in jail!

  94. Bobby Clark says:

    Many thanks for the showing her love and compassion before she crossed the bridge. Damn, makes me so sad.

  95. Winda says:

    oMG…what a horror those evil morons do in Spain????the first picture about the reality what they did to animals rrrrreeeeeaaaalllyy make me so MAD….i wish i have the power to make them pay for what they have done…i will drag those morons to HELLL

  96. Manon says:

    Allo Viktor je suis vraiment désolé pour Queen…..Merci d’avoir été la pour elle.

  97. wendy cornah says:

    shame I am so sorry

  98. Simon Gliddon says:

    Vegetarianism is a good starting point…..

  99. tina says:

    Poor baby, thank goodness she experienced kindness and love in her final hours. Keep up the great work. X

  100. Nicki says:

    So sad, so sorry. RIP sweetheart. Know that in those last moments you were loved. Run free!

  101. Mark says:

    What can you say, the first is I pray this Queen lives on. To the most horrible animals in the world the human who done this I hope you get what you deserve for harming such a beautiful Lady. Hope all is going well for Queen. God willing.

  102. wolle says:

    by beautiful queen,
    i feel sad to know you are not longer on our planet.
    R.I.P

  103. Sue says:

    So so sad..a candle burns for Queen. thank you for all you did for her. Run free at the Bridge sweet Angel free from pain and feeling only love. You where so special and will never be forgotten xxxx

  104. Tina says:

    Run free over the rainbow, sweet girl. I will never forget you and I gonna spread your message out. I promise.

  105. Sheila says:

    MY angels are with her, at least she had some care in her last hours. The Ba—–ds will get their come upanse s they go through their lives, one day god will punish them as well, and they will have poor health in old age and may reflect on why they have the illness and bad fortune they will get. Karma is giong to get to them. xx god and the Angels be with her now.

  106. John Kelly says:

    Want to do her justice and honor her passing? Do something good today for an animal. Donate food or a toy to your local animal shelter. Feed a stray cat. Put out some bird seed. Open your heart to a stray. Do for another animal what nobody bothered to do for her.

  107. Jackie Davis says:

    I know that in her heart, she knew that someone tried to help her. I hope in that moment that she knew, that not all humans are like her abusers. I thank you for taking the time for her. She was a magnificent animal. Now she runs free and I cry my tears for her. Her abusers are despicable people, void of humanity.

  108. In all my years of helping the galgos and podencos, it was obvious to me this dog would have been better pts, she would not survive as she was too far gone. So what has happened to the money which was donated for her care? Surely the vet knew any treatment would only prolong her suffering. I am disgusted that this dog was made to suffer longer than necessary, to my mind just for publicity and to get money.

    I was desperate to see what somenody did to lovely Queen….. I cryed all day for her.. I wonder if somenody knows who is so vicious and cruel and mean that he must be’ denunciated to the protection of animals as such a criminal mind should be’ Put IN PRISON or done same things to him …… And the person Who hang the two poor dogs to die same treatment. World is really not worth to live when you find out there is such cruelty on poor animals tha cannot defend themselves…. Please find out Who did this because we all can denunciate …..

  112. Crstina says:

    Please Who knows the author of this criminal act, should denunciate him so as to save other poor inerm and indefended animals.

  114. Scott Hillen says:

    Thank you for all you did for Queenie.. am so sorry that the human race failed you.. no more suffering now

  115. Jessica Rath says:

    I just read that this sweet girl passed away. I want you to know how much I appreciate that you didn’t listen to the vets’ advice and euthanize her right after she was found. She was able to experience love and care, if only for a day or two. The many people who read about her and sent their compassion, I’m sure they alleviated her pain a bit. This way she could die with dignity. Thank you with all my heart. If I didn’t believe in Karma, I’d go crazy…

  116. Christine V says:

    I only hope that she knew she was loved and was being treated the best in the end……

  117. Jeanne says:

    Queen at least knew in the end that there were still good people out there and that cared about her. That means a lot. I would have been wonderful for her to have made a full recovery but apparently God needed her upstairs.

    On another case a puppy had been put in a garbage sack and then in a discarded refrigerator, the puppy was found by the police during a drug raid and the police found that dog fighting was also going on, the puppy survived. The puppy showed to have all the proper temperament for being a drug dog and was trained to patrol the Mexican/American border. This puppy, at this point dog, made one of the biggest drug busts on that border. Never underestimate a dog or a person.

    So very very sad, bless you all for trying xx

  119. Mandy says:

    Fantastic effort, sorry to read that she couldnt make it. :(

  120. Ana Chavez says:

    I know how much she meant to you Viktor, as do all the animals. I am sorry for our loss and yours. Such a beauty, such a waste….. tears flowing……

  121. Denise says:

    What is with the pictures of the two dogs hanging in the trees. It doesn’t sound like one of them is Queen.

  122. Ellie says:

    Thank you Viktor for letting Queenie know some peace and kindness in her sad life. I sent what I could.

  123. Chris Clark says:

    My heart goes out to this poor dog I hope who did this will suffer a long and painful death! I know that Queen has! gone on to a better place. She will not feel pain or suffer anymore God bless this poor animal. The idots who did this will pay

  124. Brenda Lunceford says:

    Seeing Queen’s abuse and knowing that she has passed on has taken me into an uncontrollable crying fit… I cannot believe the cruelty that is inflicted on animals in this world. They have hearts and feelings. They feel, think, grieve, and love just the same as you and I, yet we discard them as if they were a piece of paper, throwing them away in the trash, or worse.

    My soul grieves for Queen and hope that she is at peace now. Many, many THANKS to Viktor and the entire team that worked so hard to save her. I know animals enough to know that she knew and appreciated what you were doing for her.

    I am distraught at the amount of animal abuse posted everywhere, compared to the amounts of cases solved. It seems that once a rescue is made and a little newspaper, tv news, internet, and/or Facebook publicity, the cases seem to be forgotten, swept under the rug. We, as a society, (and all the little ones that have been abused), need to feel that there is an ongoing effort to hunt down these heartless criminals and give them the gift of punishment that is deserved.

    Many thanks to all of you that made donations, as well.

  125. Viktor Larkhill says:

    Of course is not.. if one had been queen she wouldn’t have been with us in the first place, those two dogs were already dead. That first picture is an example of what is done with dogs here.. dogs like Queen. Read the story please.

  126. Viktor Larkhill says:

    To your mind Beryl… to your mind.
    She was treated for three days. That’s not prolong anyone’s suffering it’s called give a dog a fighting chance.
    I hope you don’t run a rescue, I hope you are not a vet.
    Best

  127. Nancy says:

    Viktor – May I give some unsolicited advice? If the answer is no, please do not read on. ;-)

    I admire that you post comments that are not always flattering. I admire your social media prowess. And most importantly, I admire your compassion and tenacity.

    But as someone in PR and marketing, I have to say that your message would probably reach more people if you took the high road more often.

    I’m sure this is a difficult ask. I can’t imagine the emotional roller coaster ride you are on when you devote your life to such a worthy cause and yet have to deal with a plethora of armchair critics with a grade 8 education. (Did I say that out loud?)

    Thank you for your work.

  128. Viktor Larkhill says:

    Thanks Nancy… I read the advice and believe me I try to take it… every day..
    must be my spanish character, in the end I always get down to the mud to roll with the pigs :))))
    Thanks for being there for us..
    Love
    Viktor

  129. marion says:

    Thank you so very much Viktor, for the best days of her life that you have give her. I have so much respect for your good work.
    I wish all people on the world were like you, then there wouldn`t be so much pain and suffer.
    I will always remember queen.

  130. Geraldine says:

    This is so incredibly sad, what a beautiful girl, We only live one live and to the point that was made earlier, yes there is every reason to give these animals a chance at LIFE and to be LOVED, money is not the point in this, doing theh right thing is, saving even just one life after trying so hard with so many is worth it, these beloved animals deserve far more than mankind seems capable of,they give unconditional love and trust.Give as many as possible a chance at life.How do you choose who to try and save and who to just put down. They all deserve to live. Love them all dearly and could give up on people far easier.

  131. Nora Rudd says:

    My daughter have wqnted to start a animal rescue but new that when the time was right we would know..One Saturday we recieved a call about a very skinny dog that could barely stand up. We raced to the location and what we found was almost too much to bear..We foung
    d a yellow lab believed to be 6-7 years old. We named her Sunshine..My daughter is a ICU,CCU,Internal Medicine. We took her to my daughters work and they immediatly started to work on her. She was very sweet & was even wagging her tail. SHE WEIGHED IN AT A SHOCKING 22lbs..She crossed the Rainbow Bridge later that night..She was atleast dry, warm & had food on her last day.

  132. Nora Rudd says:

    When we get our web site up I will post the pictures of her. She was only bones with skin on them. This took many many months to do to this sweet dog.Although we will never know who did this to her I know for sure that Karma is a bitch..

  133. Nora Rudd says:

    Sorry for the mispelling..And I left out that my daughter is a vet tech in a specialized field. Thank God for everyone that worked on Sunshine that day they were so compassinate and loving to her.

  134. Sandra says:

    She died warm, with a full tummy, and knowing that someone cared for her, thank you for giving her that. I have seen animals come back from this stage with careful proper care, maybe a little less than half pull through, but that’s more than enough to give one a chance, and the fact she was still aware, alert, bright eyed AND EVEN EATING shows was definately the right decision. I can’t believe people are so quick to put an animal who’s ill down. EACH one is a UNIQUE life, just like we are, with feelings, and a right to life. They can’t just be put down so you can move on to the next one w a better shot-anyone who thinks that way has NO BUSINESS in rescue!

  135. Sue Swattz says:

    I am sitting in my Dr’s waiting room weeping over Queen’s story. I had never read it before. I thank The Lord for you all@ LAG every time I read your correspondence. I live in the USA and am able to donate, but my heart wishes I could be more involved….hands on with these precious animals that society has discarded in the most Inhumane ways! May God continue to bless the works of your hands & heart!

    somehow this story reminds me of my younger self..
    back then i was still young, still at primary grade 2.. i used to play with a dog that lives near my school. her name is cecil and she’s so friendly, she didn’t even bite me when i first saw her, instead she ask me to hug her :) i play together with cecil everyday.. it was so fun.. until one day, there’s a bad guys(older than me) that were abusing her.. i was to scared to stop them, all i can do is just staring from behind, seeing cecil being abused.. i wanted to help her, but if i do then i might get hit too, so i hurried and call cecil’s owner.. when cecil’s owner come, all the bad guys ran away and i hurried to cecil. she was badly hurt, she’s bleeding and she’s not able to stand. i got scared, and ask her owner to bring her to a vet. when we arrived to the vet, she was immediately brought to the room, being checked, and getting intensive care. they said we should come again tomorrow to check her. after that i went home, thinking what will happen to cecil and cried. and the next day i went to the vet again. i saw cecil still lying down in the room. as i ran to her she moves a bit and lick my hand. i stay there for around 10-15 minutes and suddenly i hear the vet calling me saying that cecil is on critical condition. i was to young that i still doesn’t understand what critical condition means, and i just walking casually to cecil. and then i saw cecil doesn’t move much, i ran to her and panicked. i pet her head slowly, then she licked my fingers a little.. and then she stopped moving. she’s gone :’( i cried so much.. and the next day i ask her owner to bury her near my school, so i can visit her everyday :(
    until now i still regret, why i didn’t come and save her back then :(

  137. Viktor Larkhill says:

    Many thanks for your heartfelt story Miyuu… I´m very sorry…
    Never forget her… she lives in your memories.
