Beautiful video made for me

Six years ago, we moved up from Italy to Germany. It was my saddest time in life.

I had to leave my dream. My dream, that I had together with others built up so hard.
A Senior Sanctuary Hospice, that we named Casa dell Amore!

My beautiful volunteers made this incredible video and yesterday I revived it from Chiara Ricci, I hadn't seen it since the day we left.

AWL are still working very hard rescuing animals down in Italy. And one day, very soon, will I open up a new Hospice! A bigger and better, together with inspiring people and veterinarians.

That's Amore!

In Spite of Life Threatening Experiences, Still She Wags Her Tail

I immediately saw her.  With her big black eyes she sat in a small cage looking curious at me. It felt like she chose me.
I asked the American Animal Organization to adopt the little cute dog Shiloh. They told me that Shiloh’s mother and siblings had  previous week been gassed to death by the state’s dog patrol.

The veterinarian found out that Shiloh had a kennel cough and had to sit isolated for a while. Back home she quickly grew into my family, along with three other dogs.

We moved from the US to new adventures in southern Italy.
The dogs took the long trip better than us nervous dog owners.

One evening, we walked with Shiloh along the wide Italian street. Suddenly a car arrived at high speed and drove over her!! Severely injured, she was taken to the emergency room.
Nobody thought she would survive.

I prayed day and night for her.

“She’s a miracle dog,” the veterinarians told me when I finally brought her home.

The following year, Shiloh got serious problems with her kidneys. She peed blood.

I was told about a great man, Michael, who could cure animals but who had no veterinary license. Michael was also a good homeopath. No other veterinarian had previously been able to cure Shiloh’s kidney problems.
Instead, they thought we should euthanize her.

Michael examined her and asked several questions. Suddenly, he took hold of Shiloh’s side and with his palm he hit her kidneys.
Shiloh shouted out.

I thought he was crazy!
We left, and with us we got some medicine ampoules.

A couple of weeks later she was healthy!

I told our veterinarian.
“She is a miracle dog,” he said again.

Once again it was time to move to new adventures and this time to southern Germany. Again, Shiloh moved with us but this time with 16 other happy dogs.

Today she is 14 years old. A beautiful limping  greymuzzle Senior, but still the same positive attitued as the first time I saw her there in the small cage.

She’s really a miracle dog.

I believe, we have a lot to learn from the animals.
We are what we think. Never give up!

That’s Amore!

The most beautiful and important is to have a veterinarian(s) that you and your animals feel comfortable with.

We are pleased and happy with Vet. Spötl.
She is amazing, and all our animals are feeling that. ChaCha runs in, and if she had her will, she would stay the whole day by her side!

That's Amore!

Veterinarian Visit

Picked up ChaCha from having a surgery today.
Before she came up to Germany from Italy she tried to eat herself out from a shelter fence. She broke her K9 tooth.

That was a couple of years ago and this week I discovered that her tooth stump was infected.

When sedated they took blood test to see if her values from last time were any better.

Since this drama queen never like when we brush or cut her nails, I had a request they would do that too while she slept!

Now she is acting like a little puppy of 56 kg on the couch. That's Amore!

Bearded Dragon at the Reptile Veterinarian

0

Our beloved AWL bearded dragon Bobby, had to go to the veterinarian yesterday. I had found a fantastic reptile veterinarian only an hour away from our Animal Sanctuary.
Bobby bleeds from his mouth, especially when he eats grasshoppers!
I am the only one handling Bobby, and during his stay here for 3 weeks, nothing special has happened!

Veterinarian examined him and told me that Bobby got an old fracture on his jaw. The jaw is trying to heal!

We have no idea what or when this could have happened! The former person that cared about him said he thought he bleed from his mouth when shedding.
When rescuing animals, even with a story being told to you about the animal, bring the animal(s) to be examined by an experienced person!

When Bobby came to us a piece of his tail was gone, and several toes missing. We don’t know why…we can only guess. He has been in different homes before finally ending up with us.

For now, he will be without crickets for two weeks, and after that, another examination at the veterinarian!
