We have some very sad news….
Sophie has crossed the rainbow bridge.
Sophie was an adorable 6-year-old smiley gal who was surrendered to FBV due to IVDD. She had surgery but remained with impaired mobility and incontinence. She adored her people and LOVED sitting in her person’s lap and chilling with her humans on the couch. She was the ultimate snuggle buddy. She also loved chewing on toys/bones (especially Benebones).
Her foster mother had noticed a change in Sophie one day. She was eating but seemed quieter. She brought her to the vet and chest X-rays were taken. It showed an immense amount of fluid in her chest cavity. Sophie had shown no signs but had a mass that had grown in her chest and ruptured.
Devastatingly, there was nothing that could have been done to fix this for Sophie. The decision was made to let her cross the bridge to free her from any pain. Her foster mother fed her some chocolate and cheese whiz and was there with her, loving her, to the very end.
Sophie was in our care for some time. With that, she received so much love and support from all of our Villagers. Whenever there was an ask for help with her care, our community of supporters came through for her.
Thank you to everyone that loved Sophie. Thank you to her foster family for showing her how loved she was all the way to the Rainbow Bridge.
