More on Magnolia
Smiling Dogs

Magnolia's family volunteers with a rescue in North Carolina and she was a foster. When she came to them she weighed almost twice what she weighs today. She was on a lot of medicines for a variety of health issues because her previous owner didn't properly feed her. One med was for her heart.

She stopped eating anything that had meds in it and her family noticed her potty was slow drips. So they took her to the vet and got the quality of life talk. Meds for her heart were shutting down her kidneys and kidney meds would put fluid on her heart. They were told she didn't have long so let her do what she wants. They made her a sort of list similar to a bucket list, and that huge smiling picture was when they took her to the beach.

That was over a year ago and at the last visit her weight was normal and all her blood work was great. She's now about 6 pounds and very active. Looking back at where she was and where she is now I am so amazed.
