Sassy is a Hurricane Charlie survivor (2004. She was 9 wks old when I adopted her. We had her at home for 3 days when she got sick with a severe case of Parvo. I transported her for 13 days from an overnight critical care unit to the vet so they could keep her hydrated, medicated and try to get her to eat. On day 10 the vet told me there was nothing more they could do for her and I had to let her go. So the decision was made to give her one more night and see what happened in the morning. I couldn't give up on her! She was the dog of my dreams, my baby girl! Well at midnight we got a call that she had eaten and not gotten sick. Gerber's baby food to the rescue!!!! Needless to say we had our puppy miracle on day 11. She turned the corner and was able to eat and drink on her own without getting sick. On day 13 I finally brought her home for good! She is very intelligent, well-mannered, spoiled rotten, loves to torment her brother Ruger (because she is bigger than him now) and she is the light of my life. She has no lasting effects from the Parvo other than a sensitive stomach but we fixed that with homemade chicken and brown rice. Sassy loves to play ball, frisbee, football, pretty much any game that requires her to bring it back and you to throw it again. I am grateful that she is in my life, she saved me without even knowing it.
