Bess, Beverly and Blanche are sisters that were rescued from a puppy-mill in Kansas in Oct 2009. Blanche was adopted soon after because she had no health issues at the time. My husband and I adopted Bess and Beverly in April 2010. Since they both have health issues; cataracts for both, glaucoma and blindness in one eye for Bess, and occasional seizures for Beverly, they were harder to adopt. We got them and have loved every day with them!
A couple of weeks ago the rescue contacted to us regarding Blanche. Her owner had suffered a stroke and the rescue had agreed to foster Blanche. They were having a hard time finding someone to foster Blanche because she now has health issues – cataracts, partial blindness and an occasional seizures. No problem for us! We have had Blanche now for a week and have come to love her as much as our other two. More than likely we will end up being her forever home also!

Ain't that the truth!ReplyDelete
oh they are very photogenic, and what great people to take on three special needs poochesReplyDelete
Doesn't it restore your faith in humanity to hear a story like this.ReplyDelete
When I think about having three of Ray, it makes me want to go lie down for awhile.
"special needs" is just a different way of saying Unique from the others. We all have needs, some are just a little more unique than most others. It doesn't mean less to love, just different ways to care for. YEAH Cheryl for seeing the beauty in these unique and beautiful little dogs.ReplyDelete
As an update - we have now offically adopted Blanche. We did have a scare with her last week. She had a grand mal seizure, which required us to take her to the hospital. After staying over-night, she was released with having epilepsy, as there were no other underlying causes. She is now on anti-seizure medication and doing better. Thank you for all the kind words. - CherylReplyDelete
