Kozi – Crossed Aug 2012

Austin Sheltie Rescue Rainbow Bridge Kozi – Crossed Aug 2012

Kozi was dumped in a family’s yard out in the country. They kept her for a couple of weeks trying to find her home but were not successful so they contacted us. Kozi is a gentle 10 or 12 year old sable and white sheltie, she weighs 25 pounds and is about 14 inches tall. We are so sad to say that Kozi has bladder cancer that has spread to her lungs and to her bones. She is a quiet little girl that gets around but prefers to be left alone because of her discomfort. She enjoys her meals and frequent strolls outside and watches the goings on in her foster home from a corner or from her crate.

Kozi crossed the Rainbow Bridge this morning (8/27/2012). She came to us from being left on the side of the road near Seguin. She had had many litters of puppies. X-rays showed she had tumors in her bladder, tumors in her lungs and her leg bones were easily twice normal size and feverish. So for the last 2 months she has found solace in my kitchen, eating what she wanted, doing what she wanted, taking long trips outside to enjoy the morning and evening air. This weekend her body let us know it was time. Thank you Kozi for coming into my life, enriching it with a will to go on, never complaining about what you had been thru or your pain.
