Pip is doing so well! He wanted to show off in his ‘Super Pom’ sweater and share a joke with you! He should be going home at Thanksgiving. We are very excited for him!
I just wanted to update everybody and let you know that we are doing fine after the hurricane. Please keep our coastal and lowcountry friends – all up and down the East coast in your prayers.
Here is a little ’slo mo’ video of our rescue, Guardian. He seems as if he has been with us forever and we love him to pieces!

Sandy’s biopsy results have already come back. The specialist vet called this morning and said it is unusual to get them back so soon. She said she had good news and that in this instance she was so glad that she had been wrong. She was almost sure that the tumors were cancer. But they were not! big HAPPY DANCES !! That is 2 big miracles in 2 weeks. Guardian’s leg tumor was benign as well. Thank you for being a HUGE part of their miracles. The vet bills are paid. We feel so blessed!! hugs-Elaine

Sandy is home and resting. What a little trooper she is! Thank you all for your prayers and support. If you did not know she had just had surgery, it would be hard to tell by the way she is acting.We go back in 2 weeks for the re check and the vet should notify us in a week or so on the biopsy results. I am still praying that the tumor is not cancer and we won’t need chemo. I cannot thank you all enough for supporting us through this. We were able to pay the total of the bill and did not have to borrow. We had our miracle! Thank you so much!
Our sweet, sanctuaried Pom girl, Sandy is in need of our help! I hope you all recall Sandy, one of the 3 we rescued right before Christmas(a yr and a half ago) out of a NC shelter that at the time was using a gas chamber to euthanize. She was dropped off at the shelter with little Sammy. They were brought in a box on a trailer load of firewood. We guess she is about 12-13 years old. I noticed a lump beside her rectum a few weeks ago, so when we had her last dental, our vet took a sample of it. She then recommended we see a specialist as anal surgery of any kind is extremely sensitive. I just got back from the specialist and she suspects some type of cancer. She is having blood work done, an ultrasound to see if the tumors have spread, then removal of the tumors. If the tumors have spread to the Lymph nodes the vet will open the abdomen and remove those at the same time that Sandy is under anesthesia for the anal tumor removal. The cost of all this will wipe out all of the PomRescue.com bank account and put us in to borrowing on a credit line. The estimate they just gave me was 2000-2400. Then depending on what the tumors are, there may be chemo. As far back as I can remember, I don’t think we have ever faced such an immediate crisis. I hate to ask, but I ask not for myself but for ‘Miss Sandy’ as we call her. She has one of the sweetest dispositions of any dog I have ever met! In case you would like to verify this info, the vet info is Upstate Veterinary Specialists, 393 Woods Lake Road, Greenville, SC 293607 1-864-233-7650 and the veterinarian is Dr Margalit.

I am not afraid that we will not be able to meet Sandy’s urgent need as our supporters have ALWAYS come through for us and I THANK YOU SO MUCH from the bottom of my heart!
Please beware of water intoxication this summer. I really had no idea that this was a problem. I have been told that it can even happen while a dog is playing in a sprinkler! http://thebark.com/content/danger-water-intoxication#.V1LYOXDAPCU.facebook
PomRescue.com rescued Guardian, a German Shepherd stray, at a county animal control shelter, on his last day.
PomRescue.com rescued Guardian, a German Shepherd stray, at a county animal control shelter, on his last day. Having just lost our guardian dog, Bear Harris, we rescued Guardian in honor of our Bear. Guardian was very, very thin and a bit nervous about being left alone. He quickly bonded to us. It took a few days of careful work, but Guardian has now included all the dogs and the chickens as ‘his pack’.
