Hello everyone, I am back, Meet Love, the newest addition to our family. She is from Canada and was transported to Pennsylvania today with DCINs help which I will get to in a minute. Love was found in a dumpster in -30 degrees C December 20th in Canada. The woman who found her took her in and fostered her. January 23 she was dx with diabetes and food change was started. I saw a post by DCIN that she was a rescue only and asked our own @Chris & China what that meant. After a few discussions I said I would adopt her. In posts with the foster mom whose daughter named her Love aka Olive, I asked if she knew what Love's glucose was and how long ago. It was 24.3 or 437 on January 23rd according to the record it was the only glucose done and by which means it does not say. Cathy (volunteer from One Last Chance Rescue) got a quick course in FD who in turn showed foster Mom Laurie how to shoot and test. Although only a few tests got done, insulin was started low at 0.5 units until she could get here. Being that Laurie is expecting a baby boy any day now it was a lot for her to take on but she did so without question. Love has only received insulin for about a week now and some of those doses were not consistent. Of course today being travel day she didn't have any. I tested at 7 pm (I will get the ss up as soon as I figure out how, new IMAC so I'm learning) was 465. I am just realizing that I now have to set an alarm clock every morning and wondering why am I doing this again. Well everyone needs Love and Love needs us. I really don't think she is the 9 lbs stated by vet. There is no fat on her and with the long fur I couldn't even get a scruff or find a spot on the flank. The next few days we will all be settling in and getting the routine down. Right now she is just growling and hissing anytime someone moves and that is not sitting well with Tux or PJ. I so hope that will change. Love does not like being left alone at all. She has a very strange weak hoarse cry that sounds just like Smokey's cry. I do not know if all these people are here on the board but I would like to thank all who helped get her to me. @Chris & China who contacted the rescue, gave crash course on FD to @Cathy Valenti (One Last Chance Rescue) who in turn taught foster mom @Laurie Le Huquet, @Phoebe basso (DCIN Transport), @Eva Konjic McDowell (DCIN), @Ella & Rusty & Stu(GA) (transporter) Love thanks you for the toy, @Sarah Huneau (transporter), @Kat Walsh (transporter), @milfordcollector (Cindy Gross, transporter) The shirt is so cute, I will get a pic when the diarrhea stops. You all worked quickly and gave your time to get her to me. I hope to live up to your faith in me. I really hope to get her feeling better quickly however, I must say it will not be easy.
