Penny is a wonderful English Bulldog. God sent her to us in 2012. A stranger had found her in the woods – abandoned and dying.
Penny was emaciated. She had lost a great deal of her fur. Her teeth were in terrible shape, and her mouth was festering with a severe infection.
We rushed her to the vet. They were nearly as alarmed as we were. Our worst fears were confirmed – her chances for survival were bleak.
“Save her life” we cried, “or at least allow her to die with dignity.”
The medical examination revealed that Penny had been used for breeding. So intense was the process that it had stolen the calcium from her body. Needless to say, 10 year old Penny was critically ill.
It was as if she hadn’t eaten in weeks … perhaps from abuse and neglect … perhaps because she couldn’t chew. Certainly because no one cared. Clearly because someone had left her to die.
We spared no expense for beautiful Penny. She endured extensive dental procedures, IV feedings, injections, antibiotics, and surgeries. Slowly but steadily this beautiful creature regained her strength – and her dignity.
Today Penny offers a steady, encouraging paw to her younger companions. Her mouth is restored, her fur is healthy – and her spirit is strong.
Her younger charges instinctively sense her strength and her dignity. They kiss her and bathe her and snuggle with her. In return Penny gives the most precious gift of all … comfort and assurance that they too will be all right.
Penny is the symbol of pure unconditional love. When times are tough, when doggies are lonely, when babies are afraid … they turn to Penny.
Thank you, God for sending her to us. Penny has found her furever family.
