Many of you may remember Suzie Q (Shih Tzu with white hair) that has her story in the book “RESCUE ME.”  She was a former breeder dog dumped on the street with her one puppy and she knew no other life. When we first rescued Suzie Q out of Gwinnett Shelter, we thought she might have cancer and she had to go through surgery and as it turned out after her surgery, our luck was with us and she was cancer free.  Suzie is doing fine but it is now questionable if she has Cushing’s disease so she will have to go through testing for that.

Our last rescue was the tiny one, Rosie (tea cup poodle with apricot hair), who was also wandering the streets as tiny as she is and who never had a healthy day in her little life.  She is 12 years old but it was extremely evident she never had ANY health care. Her back was so bad she walked sideways and kind of looked like a blown up tick – she had no shape.  From going to my chiropractor/holistic vet, Rosie now plays, jumps, walks and looks great. The shelter pulled some of her teeth the day before we rescued her out of Dawsonville but of course they didn’t bother to clean them so now (only a few months later) her teeth are in deplorable condition and, as sweet faced as she is, getting too close to her can be quite a horrendous experience due to whatever is going on in her mouth (probably multiple infections).

So, it’s now time to take our latest rescues to the vet for some more serious work. 

My husband Jim and I rescue, rehome, adopt and spend most of our money on our dogs. He would love to retire but he can’t because someone has to pay for the dogs.  However, when we run into a larger expense for our rescues, it is sometimes necessary to reach out to those hearts and souls who know the in’s and outs of rescue and the expenses that appear out of nowhere.  Anyone who rescues, knows that these animals have a total life that we know nothing about.  I sure wish they could speak so we would know more about their lives, but, then, maybe we wouldn’t want to know.  All I know is, we pick up the pieces of the unwanted and forgotten, the abused and neglected, the sad, the lonely and the unhealthy and put them back together as best we can and give them the love that God always meant for them to have until they go to the Rainbow Bridge. They give us much love and teach us many lessons if we pay attention to them.  Their bodies may be battered but their hearts are made of pure gold.

These two little girls are asking anyone who would like to give from their heart to help them out with whatever you are able. No gift is too small and would be greatly appreciated to help mend their little bodies.

If you do not want to use PayPal at, kindly feel free to call our vet, Bridge Park Animal Hospital, 11105 State Bridge Rd., Ste. 100, Alpharetta, GA 30022 – Phone: 770-569-5799 and ask them to put your donation on either Suzie Q or Rosie’s account (Mansfield).

And, if you are not able – please share this out to your friends and other groups.  Suzie Q and Rosie thank you from the bottom of their tiny hearts.

Pages of Love
  • 1 claimed
“Pages of Love” are special writings created and designed for your animal as a special individual. You, and only you, know your animal and that is why you will be asked about your companion’s individual personality. In this way, each letter of his/her name will hold an individualized sentence either from the animal to you, or to the animal in particular. You are loving and enjoying your best friend’s company currently, but what about when the time comes for him or her to pass over to the Rainbow Bridge? With your own “Pages of Love” keepsake, you will have your loving companion with you as a constant reminder, to hang on your wall or put on your desk, etc. for the remainder of “your” life.
