Our precious permanent foster princess Darla, crossed the Rainbow Bridge on 10/13/2015.
Darla was designated a permanent foster shortly after she was rescued because of a progressive degenerative neuromuscular disorder. She lived with our director, Ruthann for the last 2 1/2 years…..you know the Tweet Wady.
Darla was a precious, mild mannered little girl who had difficulty walking(but we managed), she loved to eat, loved belly rubs, sunning herself on the patio, rolling in… the dirt, moving furniture and spending time each day finding the perfect placement for her perla bed. If not watched closely, she took pleasure in tipping over any water dish she could find. Despite her handicap, she loved to give foster mom a heart attack by jumping on and off the couch.
Darla got sick suddenly on 10/13. She was transported to UGA ER vet in respiratory distress. On examination, she was found to have a large mass (cancer)occluding her throat. The large mass along with the partial paralysis of her larynx/pharynx made survival impossible. She passed in the arms of the person she loved most in the world.
Darla showed no outward indications of illness relating to cancer. She was as chubby, active and impish as she had been everyday for the last 2 years.
Rest in Peace Darla (Lil’ Darlin’)
It was my pleasure to be your servant, nurse, chauffer, chef, maid and loving MOM. You owned my heart, Dar Dar.
