Here’s Miss Esther again, who joins us in wishing all of you a very Merry Christmas and a Happy New Year!
Though she’s totally deaf, blind in one eye, had a spine infection (which we’ve since treated), and has developed seizures (for which we’ve just started her on daily medications), Esther is one very happy girl. She follows us around the house, happily barking out of pure joy. (We’ve noticed over the years that the deaf ones always have a lot to say. We’re not sure why!) And, as I’ve pointed out in previous posts, Esther is the very definition of a rolling dog. Any time is a good time to roll!
We are so blessed to receive donations that allow us to take in disabled dogs like Esther, get them the best veterinary care possible, and let them enjoy their lives, knowing they are loved and cherished. This year alone, three of our disabled dogs — one-eyed Cap and blind Zach and Billy — also found wonderful new homes. That we can give these special dogs another chance like this is possible only because of the generous gifts we receive from people who support our charitable mission.
If you haven’t already made a gift for the disabled dogs and would like to do so, you can make an online donation on our website here, or mail a check to the farm at P.O. Box 150, Lancaster, NH 03584. And don’t forget, your donations are tax-deductible.
We are so grateful for your gifts — thank you!
I’m going to take a blog break for the remainder of the holidays, and will be back in early January.
Until then, happy holidays!
