Maggie - Go Fund Me UpdateIt is with heartfelt sadness to share with you that our sweet Maggie, our latest Bryn Fund rescue, crossed the Rainbow Bridge rather unexpectedly yesterday. She had shown improvement late last week, her appetite returning with the help of her favored chicken meals.  Her tail wagged and she enjoyed being outside.

Unfortunately in the last day, she began having seizures. Our vet partner determined that she had either a brain lesion or tumor, and not a seizure disorder that could be treated with medicine. The seizures increased in frequency and severity, and our vet partner felt she was not strong enough to undergo any advanced screenings at a specialist hospital.  It was clear her little body was shutting down and the painful decision was made to let her go.

Our Vice President, Lisa, and her husband had visited with her daily; they fell in love with her and had hoped to foster and adopt her, giving her a wonderful, safe and loving home.

Lisa was with her when Maggie passed, and she had her cozy and bundled up in blankets, and the little Golden passed very peacefully.  RIP sweet girl. 

Thank you all for your good thoughts and prayers.

gretel14048 5We recently rescued two special dogs that need many prayers along with the terrific medical care and support of our vet partner.  Due to their critical health issues, they are the lastest dogs to benefit from our Bryn Fund, which was established solely to support expenses of abused and neglected Goldens brought into our care.

Hansel and Gretel were left for dead in the woods, both tied to a tree and found starving, weak and sick. They appear to be littermates and are about three-years-old.

Emaciated, Gretel weighs 34 lbs and Hansel weighs 39 lbs. They have whipworms, roundworms, hook worms, ear infections and are anemic.
