    Hi everyone I am writing to let you know I have sent Reese who is now Rocky(they changed it?) to MidAmerica Border Collie rescue and my heart and mind are at peace as I know they will give him all the medical attention and love he needs. He was still doing really great with walking and no relapse before I surrendered him over but it really was hard to say goodbye after all we had been through but I really believe God uses me for these beautiful animals and I am happy to help them out, I miss him being around the house and whining for me to come help him get up,sounds silly but you do miss stuff like that :) Thank you all for your encouragement,support and prayers they all lifted my spirits and helped me when I was really down about him so thank you all for being here. As of now Reese is in foster care with another border collie playmate and a 6 year old boy,he will continue to be on the Doxy for another month and then hopefully he can be adopted out really soon. I wish you all a very Merry Christmas,God is great. Thanks Amber

    great to hear but i guess you are heart broken and happy at the same time .I'm sure he is going to love his new home and a buddy too and a child that will get a kick out of watching the 2 dogs play .Rocky will get stronger with that exercise and love so feel good about it and know you succeeded .I'm sure you will feel better about it as tell goes by but he will always be in your heart and prayers .Great job

    That's so wonderful Amber and hope he finds a nice forever home soon. You did such a nice thing for him over and above what a lot of people would do in that situation.
    Here is a another miracle story about 2 kittens I heard about today:

    Congratuations, Amber, on more than a job well done. Your heart and soul and pocketbook went into saving Reece, and even though he has a new name, I will remember him as the very lucky dog that a lovable woman name Amber saved. :) God is great, and he brought Reece to you in his greatest time of need, and you responded with all your heart. Bless you for your kindness!
    JW, that article is unbelievable. People around me dump dogs and cats all the time. Why don't people take their dogs to the Shelters? Do they think they are better off on a road in the country, having to deal with dogs protecting their own homes, or wild animals? Did you notice those cats both look like marble stripes? I had one once, and it was very beautifully marked, and I gave it away. LOL Never could catch that mama cat to get her spayed, but every year she would bring a litter of kittens to my house to wean. :)
    Thank goodness for good hearted people! The world revolves around them/us!

    I was just thinking about you and Reese the other day. wondering how he was doing. So glad you finally got a Dr. that knew what and how to treat. It was exactly as I thought. Poor fellow went through so much because a Vet wouldn't listen. That's ashame. I'm really glad to see him up and running and playing. The listing really made me want to adopt him. I'm sure someone will give him a good home soon and it appears he's being well taken care of in the mean time. Endy is still having seizures but they have been light and only rare now. 1 a week is about all I have noticed and she is usually back to herself in about 10-15 minutes which is a great improvement. Thanks for the update!

    I actually cried when I seen and read the update because we have been through so much together and it all finally paid off. He is very much missed by me but he is being taken care of and well on his way to a great life which makes me very happy. Just thought I would share with everyone as I know some of you have prayed for him. Have a great day.
