I’ve been very lucky to have Foley in my life for over 21 years and it is with a heavy heart I am slowly letting him go. I won’ let him suffer.
He had itchy skin so I bathed him in a dog medicated shampoo and the irritation got worse. I took him to the vets, they prescribed steroid tablets. Until last year when he had to have some teeth out he’s never really been to the vets much. I have always healed my dogs myself.
Yesterday, after taking a steroid tablet he collapsed.
He is in the garden wrapped in blankets, the birds are singing. He’s not in pain – he’d tell me, but he is limp.
He is the closest long term living friend in my world. I adore him in a way I am unable to put in to words, sorry. It won’t be easy – so I won’t be online for a while.
I have to get used to a different way of doing things.
We are all doing a lot for the vulnerable at UKRescueConnect and it is difficult for all of us to find time to share all this on the internet. But we will get there.
Please be assured our goals will never change. We want to give and to love.
Thank you for your patience.
I would like to close by saying people who work with animals need to get along for the right reasons. To be sincere, kind and helpful toward one another. There is no room for malice and ego when the vulnerable need us to behave like adults and help them.
Thank you to everyone on Social Media for sharing good work and important news, keep it up. You are all leaving your blue-prints. Whatever you think of me – please send my dog your love. He is a pure soul.
(Foley died this evening in my arms at 11.11 pm.) Go over rainbow bridge my darling and heal the broken souls of those doggies who suffered more.)
