Six weeks ago we welcomed Dukesa to our rescue as a permanent foster and on Sept 21 we had to say good-bye.
11 year old Dukesa was taken to the shelter when her owner passed away. She was super stressed and had multiple health issues which we later determined to stage 4 kidney disease, severe spondylosis and laryngeal paralysis. Pain medication helped for a while, she was so much happier but still tired very easily. She has found a favorite spot by the front door where she could nap, catch a breeze and watch everything that is going on outside. Even though she was with us for a very short time, she was loved beyond measure.
