    I'm always in awe of the size of your heart.

    i was thinking exactly what Sarah wrote...that is so unbelievably sad - people are so messed up
    you and Cain are amazing - i admire you so much for what you do!

      I think its absolutely WONDERFUL that you foster animals. That story made me cry. How can people be so irresponsible in the beginning and let their pets health get so poor? GRRRRR.....I'm so greatful for kind hearted animal lovers like yourself (I know the animals are too) :)

            Oh Tammy, Im heartbroken and cant imagine what you go through. You have a strong hear to be able to do the things you do... and continue to do them. Im so sorry you had to put him down but at least he is now pain free, it was the right thing to do.

              Thanks girls.. I read in one of our dog books that it take 7 months to actually get to the stage of having worms (it starts with eggs and goes from there) and knowing how bad he was after seeing the x-ray, he had to have had it for at least a year.

              Cain is handling it the hardest right now, because he picked him up and from then really bonded with him. I think I'll make him some cookies tonight to cheer him up.

              Just sucks that we couldn't have gotten to him sooner, I'm sure he would have made someone very happy, he was very loving..

                Oh Tammy, that's tough. It's very sad that a doggie at 5 years old had to be put asleep.

                  Aw Tammy, I am so sorry! I know there isn't much to say to make it feel any better but I think cookies helps everything - even if just a little. Give Cain a big hug and think of all the dogs you have been able to find excellent homes!

                      Tammy, you and Cain are incredible people. Sorry about having to put the doggie down, but at least he is not in pain anymore.
