Lone Star Dog Ranch

We put out a call to the volunteer transport page where we have people signed up literally all over the country to help and within 7 hours Sally had been transported to us here safely at the Ranch. Lory Martin running the first leg and Sally Shelton picking up the second leg.
What a blessing this group of volunteers have turned out to be, and the generosity of giving of themselves and their time is so very appreciated.

Sally is in rough shape, very thin, lots of scabs on her head, she looks to have skin infection from head to toe. Her abdomen does seem bloated, Dr. D wanted me to check her color and if it wasn't good she wanted me to take her to the ER just in case she has a bleeding mass in her abdomen. She seems very stable, her color looks good. I offered her some water and some dinner, allowed her to go potty and made her a nice bed. The major concern here is if she has a mass which the vet in Houston felt that she did then the question is, where is it, what kind is it, is it cancer?

We will have her at Dr. D's first thing in the morning to begin to answer those questions, get bloodwork going, x-rays and physical exam. We may end up at Dr. Rolfs for ultrasound and potentially taking her to surgery. The fear is Hemangiosarcoma which can be prevalent in the Bordeaux's and is a very aggressive form of cancer, if that's the case we will have to make some very tough decisions.

For tonight let's say good night to Sally and please say a little prayer for her as well. More to come tomorrow.

You have a lot of people praying for you Sally. You will see the Dr. tomorrow and be checked from head to toe. I feel so sorry for you sweetie, but you are in loving hands now. Thanks to the transport group for getting you to the ranch so fast.

Prayers Sally rest peacefully and have sweet dreams of you truly being saved for a lifetime of happiness, however long that lifetime will be. God have mercy on your soul precious.

Prayers for sweet Sally. If I was there, I would snuggle her and smooch her- and talk to her all night. I guess I will do that in my dreams tonight. πŸ˜˜πŸ˜˜πŸ˜€
