I also watched Beth mourn the loss of two of her life-long furbabbies, Maggie a black lab, and Midnight an all-black cat.
Midnight passed away on April 6th, 2017, then Maggie passed away on April 21st, 2017. (pictures below)
In the last two years, Beth has also moved 8 times, Volunteered around 300 hours, almost lost a close friend due to a brain tumor, and spent months in physical therapy.
After all of that, who wouldn't need a little support??
Her therapist agrees, that a corgi dog from a reputable breeder who would be small enough for her to manage and unlikely to have serious health issues would be a great option to help her manage her pain from her EDS, as well as her anxiety and depression.
Beth has already found a breeder, budgeted for basic care (including pet health insurance), and even picked out names! She has gotten a second job to help pay the costs of the puppy itself, but the training costs will be around $4,000 when everything is said and done.
In the meantime, Beth will be putting a deposit on her puppy soon, and when she does I will update some photos of her sweet girl!
I hope you will help me keep this woman working toward making the world a better place, by making her world a little easier to manage.
*Both were raised together and passed away of old age.
