Remember Willow?

Post by Glenys »

Just to say to everyone that we all know what a hard year its been for everyone and rescue especially sometimes we are operating on a wing and a prayer and just when its starts to get me down along comes something good.
Please follow the link below for the story But I think you will agree that if it wasnt for the website (s) and many friends made through it this girl would not have lived ! , please accept the thanks of us all at rescue and please remember without your kindness we could not do what we do for the dogs
Sadly it comes down to funds every time without them eventually we may not be able to carry on.


So I share with you this email

Hi Glenys

Its Liz Sweeney concerning Willow, I have some good news unless you already know? Willow is walking without her wheels!!! She's quite wobbly and when she wants to go fast she still looses control a bit but its great news. I'm due to go and visit her over the Christmas period so I will remember to take some pictures and videos etc of her success and send them to you.
Has Jan been in touch about Willow? I'm sure she was going to when she got internet fitted but I'm unsure of that happening yet.
Hope you are all well and keeping up your wonderful work.

Kind regards

Liz Sweeney. xx
Liz is one of the Vet nurses)

It must make it all worth while when you hear of the results that you have helped happen. It gave me goose pimples reading that she can do without her frame. One very lucky dog.

I remember reading willows story a long long time ago, not on this site though, and i sat bubbling at it,Im so happy to read this news about her, what a little fighter she is, and a very lucky girl, this has made my day to read this about Willow.

Its onwards and upwards for her now, and well done to everyone who was involved in helping this little girl, You really do make the difference,

The work you do at the rescue i can imagine is sometimes an uphill battle but when you look atthe succes of the likes of willow it makes it so worth while, i have a lot of respect for you all :o

Lovely update on Willow, she really touched a lot of people on here and I for one thought at one point that things didn't look good for her........just to hear she is walking now wow, what can I say we are so, so lucky that we have such fabulous and kind hearted supporters on here.
