This might be a faux pas...

I know you're not supposed to talk about a lady's weight. But I don't think she'll mind sharing this one.


Sweet Dolce has gained 5 whole pounds in her first week in rescue!! Way to go, sweet girl! You'll be back to fighting trim in no time!

Some folks were asking me if she's going to have health problems because of being so starved. It's possible that she'll have organ damage from it, but there's really no way for us to tell. She'll either start to show signs of it or she won't. So we'll fatten her up and let our dogtors look at her a whole bunch, and in the meantime we'll cross our paws for her! I've known a bunch of dogs who were pretty badly emaciated and are totally healthy now, so I think she has a good chance!

We PRAY that she keeps gaining and there there are no long lasting ill effects from that experience.

Go, Dolce, go!!! I had to gain weight when I first found my forever home, too. (OK... I still need to...) I did it - and you can, too!!! C'mon, sweet girl! Keep it up!

Yay!!! That sounds like a very good weight report! Mom wishes she could put some weight on skinny Picky Boy Phantom. We hope that sweet Dolce has complete recovery to great health.
