THE STORY:

On May 18th, Daisy Mae was hiking with her human, Bridget, at Fort Funston Dog Park in San Francisco when Bridget took a tumble and split open her head. As kind strangers rushed to help her, Daisy got scared and ran off into the vast park. While her Mommy was rushed to the hospital, family and friends from near and far came out to help find this precious little girl, but could find no trace of her.

Over the following 6 weeks every effort was made to find Daisy Mae. Flyers were hung in all possible neighborhoods, shelters alerted and miles and miles of terrain were covered in the hopes of spotting a little black dog in a pink harness. But it wasn't until July 1, when a rock climber named Tony ventured into the park for a morning climb, were our prayers answered. As Tony pulled himself up over a ledge he was surprised to see a little face staring back at him. There was Daisy Mae, cowering on a shallow ledge with no food or water in sight. She had lost nearly half her body weight, was severely dehydrated and extremely weak. But she was alive!

After a joyous reunion with her Mommy, Daisy Mae was rushed to the vet to have her health assessed. Initial tests found that aside from malnutrition and dehydration, she was fairly healthy, but as the week progressed, there were many more trips to the vet as her eyes began to show signs of a problem. Finally, on July 9th, Daisy Mae was diagnosed with deep corneal ulcers in both eyes. A variety of things can cause these, and we'll never know for sure what happened to her, but we do know that the only way to save her eyes was to have surgery.

So, in an effort to help Bridget during this difficult time, her friends are working to get the word out in the hopes we can raise funds to offset the mounting veterinary costs. Please consider making a donation to help this much loved family member live a long, happy life after an arduous ordeal.
