Limber Lady Lives Large

was working at Stafford Animal Shelter when she met Dulcy and says, "We adopted
Dulcy as a 13 and a half year old lady. She'd been at the shelter for a while, was
stressed, and hadn't shown well. But she and I bonded instantly. I knew
that taking an old dog in, I'd need to provide extra care. I am so grateful for
Darcy and Black Dog Rehab for helping keep our old lady limber."
Melanie observes of her dog, "She
has been able to continue running, playing and hiking, even as she approaches
her 15th year! We are really lucky for the time we were able to spend
taking her to Darcy, and will miss her care here in Wisconsin. If I had
the means to travel back to have Darcy care for Dulcy every 6 weeks, I would in
"My favorite thing about how Darcy
handled my old lady dog was her seemingly endless patience, and willingness to
go slow," she adds, "Dulcy can be stubborn, and when she is in pain, has
trouble trusting anyone touching her. For example, Dulcy once had a piece
of cheatgrass stuck in between her toes, and was limping and in pain. We
took her to the vet, where Dulcy almost took the doctor's head off. She
was so growly and nasty that the vet just gave her pain pills and hoped it
would come out on its own. The next day, we took Dulcy to her already
scheduled appointment with Darcy, and with extreme care and calm, Darcy was
able to pull out the grass and help Dulcy start to heal.
If you want to
have your best friend cared for by someone who will love them and care for them
as much as you do, Darcy is your best bet. She is irreplaceable." (Photos by Melanie Renee of http://www.melaniereneephotography.com/)
