It’s been just over a year ago that Dr. Steve gave me the news that Divinity had cancer. Divinity died eight months ago from that dreaded disease.
Since Divinity’s death, I’ve posted about cancer, and other health topics. I’ve also posted about senior dogs being adopted, plus blind, and handicap dogs being placed in a permanent foster home so that they can live out the remainder of their days with love, and with dignity.
This post is about a very special lady named ZONA who was rescued by the Col. Potter Cairn Rescue in late April. At the time of rescue, ZONA was in horrific condition, and weighing only eight pounds.
It was easy to wrap one’s hands around ZONA’s waist, with room to spare.
ZONA spent days in intensive care at a vet clinic.
ZONA’s condition began to improve, and she started feeling better.
ZONA even began giving herself rubs!.
Unfortunately, this little lady has been diagnosed with cancer. A representative from Col Potter said “it is with much sadness that we report that the issue with Zona’s throat is cancer, which is in her lymph glands, ear, throat, larynx, etc. We had a biopsy done to confirm this, but the provisional report came back on Thursday as definitely cancer. She will not be having any surgery and is now in hospice care…”
However, there is a compassionate ending for this little lady. Again from Col Potter, “We are very proud to announce that our ZONA has been ADOPTED by her loving foster home and is resting comfortably until she has to leave us.”
Update: Zona passed on May 19, 2015. Rest in Peace little lady.
