Update: 8/25/06

GALT received a call Wednesday, July 26, saying a greyhound had shown up on an animal lover's ranch near Ardmore, OK, the Saturday before. The greyhound was emaciated and very ill. Joni Beamish, a wonderfully talented ceramic artist called to say her sister (the animal lover) was headed to DFW with her.

Please meet CoCo – she is almost three years old, and is the G dog in a litter of seven of which four were registered, but she was not. She weighs 44 pounds. She is heartworm negative and negative to all tick diseases - amazing - and had not eaten a bite since her arrival. CoCo is in the care of Dr. Jeff Ellis, who determined the next day that she needed a blood transfusion, and Fleet Cody came to the rescue. She also received intravenous fluids, and at 4:30 on Thursday she was eating chicken and rice!

Please keep CoCo in your thoughts!

Look at me then and look at me now!!!! Quite a difference from 4 weeks ago, huh? Boy, has my life changed! I have been getting regular meals everyday - in fact I got quite a few meals every day when I first arrived. And I do love to eat! I must be looking better - I sure do feel better, but I am still taking it easy. I did come down with an upper respiratory infection shortly after my arrival to my foster home, but Dr. Ellis gave me some medicine and now that is all gone. He said I still have some pesky worms so I'm still taking medicine to get rid of those.

I am told that I am going to be a very pretty girl real soon. My coat still needs some brushing, and I have some bald places that still need to grow hair, but I have lost most of the fuzzy coat. Life sure is nice here in a home instead of being out on my own and sure was scary out there. I am learning about stuffie toys, cats, squirrels, dog beds, ear scratches, and good-night kisses on my head. All these things are great fun!

Thank you for helping me get better, and hopefully very soon I'll be ready to start looking for my forever home and family!!

CoCo has come down with a very bad upper respiratory infection, chest rattling, coughing and lots of green mucous in her nose in the past week. Dr. Ellis has her on antibiotics and cough tabs, and she is already responding. Another 4 days of medicine, and we hope she will be over it. She appears to be gaining weight, but the true test will be when she is weighed at Preston Park Animal Hospital later this week.
