Do you remember Muffin? She came to BCFS after being found abandoned in an apartment. It was estimated Muffin was two years old and she’d never been groomed. She is a shih tzu and these dogs grow hair that needs to be trimmed every 6-8 weeks.
She had to be put under in order to shave pounds of faces, hair and filth off her skeletal body. Read Muffin’s Beginning here!
Muffin had several surgeries to repair a cherry eye with many set backs with infection. She nearly lost her eye at one point, but we opted to treat and in the end it healed after they removed her tear duct – Muffin would need eye drops for the rest of her life.
And then she found her forever family. Read that story at:
Muffin spent six months at BCFS getting healthy and was adopted January 1, 2015. One year later we get a lovely update from her forever family and wanted to share it with you:
Muffin – January 2, 2016
Hope all is well with you and Brent at the farm and you enjoyed another year of rescues. Just wanted to update you and send you a few pics on this the anniversary of our adopting Muffin.
We have had a wonderful year and Muffin is fitting in perfectly. Muffin loves the beach here especially in the colder weather we let her off leash and she just loves to run and play. Muffin loves the car and we take her everywhere with us in our travels working around Ontario. It was a pleasure driving to Florida with her in November. It took a little adjusting to the Florida home and weather but she settled in quite nicely after a few days. One particular day of having fun in the pool with muffin running back and forth along the edge she slipped by accident and ended up in the pool. I panicked and my Dad jumped in fully clothed to save her. We discovered she can swim but she would much rather watch from the sidelines. Just one of our many Muffin stories from Florida.
Grooming and eye drops are routine now and vet checks show no health issues. Muffin is a huge part of our family and dearly loved by all! We are looking forward to 2016 and more wonderful muffin adventures!
Thanks to Beaver Creek Farm Sanctuary and all the wonderful volunteers.. We wish you all a very Happy New Year and many more happy adoption tales!!!!
All the Best!!
Kim, Bob and Muffin
(Muffins forever family)
Happy endings do happen. What a great start to 2016!
