Hello GRRR followers! I wanted to tell you how I’m progressing in my treatment for the heartworms I had. I went to see Dr. Carpenter (GRRR’s veterinarian) on 2/27 for my final injections. I even got to stay overnight in his Doggie Spa. I also saw GRRR’s very wonderful and famous “Moose” while I was there, and he was doing great. My Mom picked me up on 3/1 to take me back home. The vet’s office is a good place to visit, but “there’s no place like home” for sure. When we got home, all I wanted to do was run for a while! I’m feeling so much better that I really needed to stretch my legs. I’ve put on 20 pounds in my new home and I look like a real Golden now! I think my Mom put me on a diet so I don’t keep growing, now that I’m in a normal weight range for my size. Life is good for me . . . and now my Mom wants to add a little about me… Noel is progressing as expected for her treatments. She will still have to have blood tests done every 3 months to see if indeed the medication has killed the heartworms. She does still have trouble breathing (shortness of breath) if she is not kept still and quiet, but other than that, you’d never know that there was anything wrong with her. She is one happy girl. She also has taken to her big brother, Duke (a Sheltie), and they want to be together all the time! She has really settled into her new home quite well. We are all so grateful for GRRR’s Golden Angel Fund and the support it has provided. All the medical help that Noel has received, together with the loving care we lavish on her, has definitely given this precious girl a new lease on life. Your donations, thoughts and prayers for Noel’s full recovery are very appreciated and Noel promises to keep you up-to-date on her progress. -Michael and Sue J.
