I kid you not, when I say this dog’s life should be a novel. Of course, most of Lassie’s adventures remain unknown to her human companions. Here is what I know:
Her early days were spent tied up in a yard, behind a small house in Panama, undoubtedly dreaming of freedom to roam. Which Lassie got when she was rescued by Nancy and David Bowers, who were living abroad at the time. Once liberated, Lassie has been an active and adventurous Cocker Spaniel- Always ready for a swim, or a game of fetch, and always in charge despite her diminutive stature. Upon meeting Lassie, I was surprised to learn that she is at least 12 years old, as she has the vitality of a puppy. In her younger days, Lassie lost a rear leg to a car accident, but you may not notice as it doesn’t slow her down- in fact, she caught another car with no injury afterward.
We performed a Mastectomy and spay on Lassie a couple weeks ago, and she is doing fantastic. WellPet is here to help pets, whether they are world travelers or home bodies. Lassie’s human family has had their own share of medical expenses recently, in addition to loss of income- leaving them unable to cover the full cost of Lassie’s necessary procedures. This is where WellPet’s mission to end “economic euthanasia” meets the need. Funds donated to our LifeSaver fund are used to cover the cost of the surgery. We partner with other animal lovers, our own clients, and the friends and family of the pets who need help to replenish the fund. This way, we are ready to help the next pet in need.
