Ella was diagnosed with Syringomyelia and taught me more in her short life about how to live life to the fullest, love with all your heart, and learn from each other.

The moment I first held Ella, my world changed. She has touched so many people giving love as a therapy dog but now it is time to give back. No matter how hard she tries to give, her eyes show sadness and pain.

3 Little Cavaliers… How one puppy led to three

3 Little Cavaliers… How one puppy led to three

I met Shannon back in August through Cavalier Talk when she posted about her puppy Flash and being concerned about Flash showing signs of SM.  Since then so many things have led up to the devastating news this week that Blitz has heartworm disease, severe CM and SM, and the list goes on. Who is Blitz you might ask since the story started with Flash.  Blitz is Flash’s father who Shannon rescued after learning about Flash.

Shannon started a blog and I hope she will tell the story herself http://3littlecavaliers.blogspot.com.  Here are some things that I found interesting and important through her story.

·          Talking to the Breeder

I hope Shannon will write a post for me but from talking to the breeder she was concerned for Flashes parents since the breeder has several breeds and knew nothing about health issues. What if this breeder continues to breed them? Should she buy the parents which will support the breeder? How do you save them from puppy mills without supporting the person doing this?

After fighting the breeder gave Flashes parents to her.  Now she was faced with two Cavaliers in very poor health. Matts, teeth being lost from chewing on cages to get out and not to mention heartworms.  She took these scared, extremely thin Cavaliers and made them family.

·          That bring us to today

Blitz is so much happier to be recovered from those conditions but he doesn't know that his condition is not good and will need surgery.

So please say a prayer for Shannon and her 3 Cavaliers.  I will be praying for them.

Ir's just so awful when people play God and don't have the God's love in them.

Thanks for posting this Annie. I will try to post a blog in the next few days about how they all came to be here. Just been so busy lately. There is never enough time in the day for me to accomplish everything I need to do.
