Re: Many Tears

Post by x on Mon Jan 24, 2011 2:14 pm

I know its sad Michele but remember 'grief is the price we pay for loving' so if you hadn't have fallen in love with Arabella she would not have known love ...and that is truly what she deserves where ever it may come from. If you hear anything about her progress I am sure we will all be interested to know how she is doing.
Where would all these lovely dogs be without volunteers like you. I'm an emotional wreck when I have said goodbye for the last time to my dogs ..so I know I would find it difficult to do the good work you do .

Aww well done Michele - Bella is going to have a great time as shih tzu and bichon seem to get on really well - and as I said to you before - it means that you can now help another wee doggy when the time is right. I know how hard it is so am sending you abig hug anyway hugging dogs and pat yourself on the back for being such a strong and caring person to do this xxxx

Well I have picked up another ex breeding Shih Tzu this morning she is called Ruby and she is four years old, she doesnt look much like a Shih Tzu at the moment (will post some piccys later) she has her face shaved as she was obviously badly matted, and she still has lots of mats all over her, I have given her a bath but she still doesnt smell so good, the smell of kennels seems to seep into their skin and although she was really good and let me dry and groom her I dont know whether to take her to my groomer and get her clipped right off, she has so many mats I dont know if it fair to put her through the amount of grooming it is going to take to try and get them out, its the people who have treated her so badly that are the animals, it breaks my heart to see a animal that has been so badly treated x

Whaty I did last weekend with a little shih tzu bitch for Friends of the Animals Michele is to carefully scissor off the matts underneath and on the legs then cut down through them lenghtways (skin towards the ground) on the back so it thins the topcoat out but doesn't cut them to the skin. It is a little time consuming which is why groomers don't tend to do it - but it does save quite a bit of coat.

BTW you are doing a brill job for our little breed xxx teddy hug

People are not animals Michele they can be unfeeling uneducated morons but not animals....animals dont treat each other in this fashion.Keep up the good work....think I would take her to the groomers or cut it right down myself and let her coat start afresh.

Thank goodness for people like you Michelle, who can restore a poor little innocent fur babies faith in humans. I can't say what I would like to do to people that let things get this bad. It sounds like this one is quite bad so I think you have your work cut out. Not sure what I would do, it all depends how Ruby is with being handled. I would probably do as Lesley says and gently have a go at her, especially as you say she was good when you bathed her. She obviously has some faith in you and feels safe letting you groom her, so although it will probably take longer, I think Ruby would feel better if you tried to sort her out yourself.

Well done and keep up the good work. teddy hug to both you and Ruby.

It breaks my heart too knowing how uncaring people can be with this lovely breed.I think it depends how long Ruby will be with you. I think I would be inclined to do how Lesley suggests as you could do a little each day, then if she is still with you in a couple of weeks when she has settled down with you maybe then take her to your groomer and see what she can do for her. I totally agree you are doing a wonderful job, Michelle.

Some pictures of Ruby, she is still very nervous my daugher came in yesterday and went to make a fuss of her and she wet herself in fear, and when we take her outside for a wee she just cries to come back in and she is so afraid, but she made us laugh last night as she was in her bed having a lovely time rolling round on her back like Shih Tzu do as though it was the first time she had ever done it you could see wqs enjoying herself x[img][/img][img][/img]

Poor little Ruby, she has such a gorgeous little face and is a lovely colour as well. Give her time and I am sure she will come round to you with lots of love and care. Smile

Just to let you know that Ruby went off to her new home on Sunday, she has been adopted by a lovely lady who has just retired, so she will be getting lots of love and attention which is just what she deserves x

She is very lovely and as for snoring Tasha could snore for Wales too. I think Meg must feel very at home with you and relaxed.I do hope she finds a lovely home soon.
