I have been thinking so much of how one little perfect dog can touch so many life's and bring people together who otherwise might have never met (virtually or otherwise).
I will be forever grateful to all our friends who have sent such kind thoughts about Betty, specially our blogger friends.
I miss my sweet angel terribly, but everyday is a reminder of how special she was and that she and many other dogs like her deserve a second chance in life, even if they have a disability or illness....
Days before Betty crossed the Rainbow Bridge, we welcomed another FBRN foster Frenchie. We call him big Mac.
He turned 1 on November 18th. He was imported into the U.S. from a puppy mill in Russia. His family surrendered him because he has a deformity called Hemivertebre. It's when one of the vertebre forms into a wedge shape instead of a circle. Mac's Hemivertebre is up near his shoulder/ neck area and causes his head to always tilt to the left.
He is the biggest sweetie and is BEST friends with Gunther. Despite his deformity, he enjoys playing and spending time with the other Smushies.
We don't quite know what his future holds, but whatever it is, he's loved and is treated like a part of our family.
