Bulldog Spotlight:
Meet Sugarloaf!

Some days in rescue are especially memorable and life-changing. Sugarloaf had been picked up as a stray and had a severe vaginal prolapse. The shelter notified us and allowed us to pull her so we could get her medical treatment ASAP.

She had to be carried to the Jeep and she slept most of the way to the clinic. Upon arrival, Dr. Larsen and her staff were ready to go to work on helping this sweet girl. They immediately prepped her for surgery.

They did her spay first and Dr. Larsen said she looked like she had recently had her first heat cycle. They worked for over an hour to correct the prolapse, but they could not get the vagina back past the pelvis. It was finally decided to stitch her vulva closed except at the very bottom so she could urinate. This was to give the vagina time to calm down and the swelling and inflammation to dissipate. They followed up that surgery a few days later with another one to correct the problem. 

Sugarloaf is estimated to be about a year old and seems so calm and sweet. Now that she has fully recovered from surgery her playful personality really shines. As you can see from the pics, someone unfortunately cropped her ears. One is shorter than the other and a little more rounded. She loves all the other dogs in her foster home, and she loves to play, as well as cuddle. 

Imagine how much torture this poor girl has already gone through in her short life. And it’s just more reason to love her for all she has been through. And rest assured, she will love you back!
Coping With The Loss of Your Beloved Bulldog
 
Dog lovers from childhood through senior years have all struggled with the emotional devastation of the passing of a Bulldog family member. Inconsolable grief dulls our days after the finality of the Rainbow Bridge. Sometimes, we retreat into a blue funk of heartbreak. 
 
The pain of the grieving process affects our judgment. Guilt spurs doubts over what we could have done better, or what we should or should not have done. Forgive yourself; our dogs know that we are only human. Rather than recriminations, savor the overwhelming happiness that your dog and you enjoyed.
 
In the depths of despair, we may swear off embracing another Bulldog in our hearts and homes. We resolve that never again will we endure that misery and grief. Do these sentiments really honor our lost Bulldog?
 
Heartache heals slowly. As denial inevitably yields to acceptance, our sorrow morphs into the joy and appreciation of a sweet Bulldog, with whom we shared precious and joyous times in our lives. We may even come to regret the selfishness that put our feelings ahead of those of our beloved companion. 
 
It is important to grieve in respect for your companion. When the time is ripe, liberate your heart and welcome heavenly contact from your Bulldog’s spirit. The message brims with thanks, unconditional love, and a request to endow another deserving Bulldog with the joy that the two of you shared. 
 
No pet will ever replace your lost loved one. Your devotion and attention to another Bulldog will exhilarate your lost loved one. He/she knows what a champion you are to the breed. They pray that you spread that faith and love amongst others in need of your loving home.
 
Another dog needs you. Honor your lost loved one by making another Bulldog just as happy as the one who has departed your midst.
Spring Is Coming—And So Are The Mosquitoes!

Heartworm disease is a serious and potentially fatal disease in pets in the United States and many other parts of the world. It is caused by foot-long worms (heartworms) that live in the heart, lungs and associated blood vessels of affected pets, causing severe lung disease, heart failure and damage to other organs in the body. Heartworm disease affects dogs, cats and ferrets, but heartworms also live in other mammal species, including wolves, coyotes, foxes, sea lions and—in rare instances—humans. Because wild species such as foxes and coyotes live in proximity to many urban areas, they are considered important carriers of the disease.

Please don't assume that your dog will be “lucky" and escape the bite of a mosquito infected with heartworm larvae! It is so easy and very cost effective to ensure your dog takes his heartworm preventative regularly. Heartworms in dogs are easy to prevent, but difficult and costly to cure. For less than the cost of a regular trip to Starbucks you can prevent heartworm disease in your dog. There are monthly pills, monthly topicals that you put on the skin, and there’s also a six-month injectable product. One treatment for a dog infected with heartworms can cost about the same as 5-6 years of prevention. This cost of prevention does not take into consideration the associated health risks experienced by an infected dog.

Heartworm disease has been reported in all 50 states. And the bite of just one mosquito infected with the heartworm larvae will give your dog heartworm disease. 

So don't count on being “lucky" please use a preventative regularly—it is for the health and longevity of your dog. He or she depends on you to ensure their continued good health.
