Saving Sasha
I adopted a dog from a dog rescue and tried to teach her to love me or at least come when she's called. And then, because it's 2012, I started a blog about it. And then, because sometimes life is really shitty, I discovered that my brand new doggie is horribly sick.

I really, really despise Tumblr and almost everything on it, but I just read through your entire archive and am sending many good wishes your way. So sorry you're dealing with this. Pets are family. Hopefully you can keep her comfortable and let her feel safe and loved.

I recently (like, five days ago) found a stray small poodle who I've been taking care of while looking for the owner. Many CL posts, flyers, and a trip to the vet to see if she's chipped (she's not) later, it seems like I'll be keeping her. She has her first vet appointment in a week and this is exactly what I'm scared to death of: that she has some awful shit going on inside of her. So sorry for what you're going through. Stay strong.

I just looked at this for the first time. I love your posting style and voice. And Sasha is a darling. All the best to you both.

Primalux, how did your vet appointment go?

It went way better than I had expected. She had been throwing up, diarrhea, the whole thing for several days but it was apparently mostly change in food and just stress so I'm very relieved. She has a yeast infection in her ears and unfortunately isn't spayed but that looks to be the worst of it.

We took her on her first camping/hiking/beach/tide pools trip last weekend and she was stoked the whole time:

Thanks for asking :)

Yay! I'm glad she's okay. And thank you for cute pictures!

I don't know if anyone's likely to see this update, but if you have any good thoughts to spare, please spare them for my Sasha this weekend. The only thing she has left is a miracle.

Since I can't comment on the blog (see above re: Me despising Tumblr), I'll say it here: Hugs to you and the little one. At least she's eating like a queen.

I suppose that if miracles happened all the time, they wouldn't be miraculous. My poor little doggie was put to sleep yesterday morning. Thank you all for your kind thoughts.

Oh no! I just saw this update. I'm so sorry.
