This is ankle-biter Simone, (post divorce dog,) almost 11 years old. As you see in the above picture, she has cruelly been subjected to the humiliation of home haircuts… since the beginning of the pandemic. She was a “breeder release,” (reject,) turned over to a shelter as a puppy because she had bad back legs that occasionally pop out of joint. She’s deaf, but I don’t think she knows that. Every so often, we speak English around her, just in case she’s faking.
Now she has cushing’s disease. That means expensive bi-weekly tests and meds to treat the symptoms, but no cure. She’s still kicking, so no need for condolences.
Simone is one of my three small dogs. I swear, no replacements. 💔 I will not love any more animals; you should, though. Adopt, don’t shop. Avoid all breeders. Shelters are full of every breed imaginable. The unhealthy pups are products of mass breeding.
Tip: I found all of my dogs at petfinder.com.
