** OUR NEW FOREVER BOY!!!! ** Everyone, we would like to introduce you to “Fatso” (he came with that name, but we prefer to call him Gramps)
This is one of the first dogs we met when we started this rescue!! We have stopped by every couple of months over the last 5 years to visit him, deliver him blankets, food etc. He holds a VERY special place in our hearts!!! Yesterday when we went to visit him, it was different than the last... He had a growth growing on his lip, and he was starting to drop weight. No longer the plump boy we once knew... We asked the owners if they were able to take him in to see a vet; and bring him indoors for the winter, but unfortunately the resources weren’t there to make it happen - so they agreed that surrendering him so he could live out his days more comfortable was the most humane thing to do.
We took him into the vet, to confirm what we were pretty sure of already, that he indeed had a cancerous growth on his lip. Additionally a few suspicious things showed up on his chest X-ray, as well as a bullet in his foot.
We brought him into a home for the first time in his life last night, and he took a huge sigh of relief.
Today we took him for his first bath, his first car ride loose and his first shopping experience to let him pick out his own treats!! We have promised this boy the best retirement, for whatever time has has left.
We have started a bucket list for him!! We would love your thoughts as to what other experiences he needs to have! Please comment your ideas!! We look forward to keeping everyone updated on our very special boy.
And thank you to all of our supporters - without you, this isn’t possible.
If you would like to donate to his bucket list fund, any help is greatly appreciated!! 💕💕💕💕💕 #passion #purpose #progress #savinggraceanimalsociety #rescue #grampsbucketlist
