I might've lost my mind.

My husband and I decided to start fostering, so we went from 1 to 3 cairns yesterday!

We were in FL last week on vacation, so we made some stops on the way home. We picked Raizel up in Atlanta and detoured through Charlotte, NC and picked up Bob before heading home to TN. It was a LONG day in the car, but it was great. Raizel and Bob are the sweetest dogs you could imagine.

Raizel is in very poor health, though, and has a mammary tumor, rotted teeth, a skin problem, is deaf, has cataracts, etc. She is just pitiful and has been severely neglected, but is so loving and sweet that it breaks my heart. It is truly disgusting that someone let her health deteriorate so badly.

Bob has Addison's disease, but is also just the sweetest boy.

Henry loves having a playmate (Bob), but leaves Raizel completely alone. He must know that she is old and sick. He asserted himself as the boss right away even though Bob outweighs him by 10 pounds!

Bob is definitely a handsome boy. He is huge, though! To me, anyway. He weighs 22 pounds. I wouldn't say that he is overweight, just very stocky and large. He's the largest cairn I've ever seen. Raizel weighs 16.6 pounds. Henry is 16.4, so she is more in line with what I'm used to. I don't know how old Raizel is. The last vet she saw estimates 8-10 years. Bob is only 16 months.

How did you come to find out about these two little ones?

We're fostering for Cairn Rescue USA.

You must be a wonderful person!

Our Keegan was diagnosed with Addison's disease last December at 8 months old, so it's particularly touching to me that you would foster and Addisonian.

You might find the following links helpful, they have been a tremendous source of information for us,

http://www.addisondogs.com (it has a great support group)

http://CanineAddisonsInfo.com

While it has taken sometime to adjust Keegan's medicine, I can say he is a perfectly normal, active, happy and most loving little one. I wish the same for Bob. Of course all my best wishes for Raizel too.

I'm sure you will be rewarded many times over for this, God bless you!!!

What a wonderful thing to do! I truly hope they will be with you for a long time. Poor Raizel-there just HAS to be a special place in hell for ppl who treat animals badly and HOW could anyone have allowed her to get in such bad shape? I don't know anything about Addison's but it is lucky for both of them that you and your husband are taking them. Good luck to all of you!
