Adelaide’s sister Aissa turns 14

Posted in Uncategorized at 9:01 pm by Karma

Happy Birthday to Aissa May.  Some time in June, she turns 14.  We don’t know a specific birthday since she was found in the middle of an interstate as a baby with a bad case of mange and worms.  I adopted her from the Humane Society that had taken her in and gotten her well.  She had sarcoptic mange initially and when I adopted her, she still was battling demodex mange for a few months.  Here was a picture of her intake with the Humane Society.

By approximate age, she is now 14 years old!  And she is a loved and happy girl.  Today we had a Birthday cookie, and Adelaide got a flower cookie too!

Aissa May loved her treat.  Here are a few pictures both from the other night after daycare and today enjoying her cookie.

And then the best picture of the group was one of Adelaide of course.  This was her getting her cookie.

And now everybody is in their post treat comas and enjoying the air conditioning on a warm summer day.  If anyone is wondering about Adelaide’s storm issues.  Well, they are still going on.  We haven’t gotten the thundershirt yet.  Not opposed, just working on a few things.  Right now, she heads for under the bed every time it storms.  And she stays there for hours afterwards.  She is also nervous about going outside for the first 12 hours or so afterwards.

Happy Birthday to my dear Aissa May!  Love you always.

      Thanks Alison. She only goes to daycare once a week. But she has another older buddy there that is her speed and the two of them just walk around together while the rest of the bunch go crazy. It adds a little pep to her step.

    We hereby declare the month of June “Aissa May Month”! Hoppy birthday sweet lady, may you have many, many more! Can’t believe that was you in the first pic, what a long road you’ve traveled. You are so lucky to have found a good human that gave you a shot at a great life.

    Love love love the photos, what a fun pawty that looks like! Wish we couldda been there.

    P.S. Karma try the calming cap on Addy, it calms Wyatt down during thunderstorms. If it works for him it might work on her too. At less than $20 it’s worth a try.

    OMD!!! LOVING THIS!!!!!

    Karma, this is the TRUTH! I saw this right before I went to bed last night and dozed off with a smile on my face!! And that felt sooo good after some of the sad news!!! I kept looking at that pic .of Aissa before, then the “after” and then….O.D…..then…ADDY!!!! I’m surprised you didn’t hear me LMAO all the way in Georgia!!

    BTW Aissa, I think you and Mathilde could almost pass as twins!!!

    I love that she and another “dog of wisdom” hang out together at Daycare and just stroll along at their own pace.

    And I tell ya what, those birthday treats are making me drool big time! I can only imagine Brendol leading the birthday celebration at the Bridge…lots of bubbles everywhere, the Angels singing a little Paul Simon and buckets of cake and ice cream!

    It really is amazing to see the way that Aissa came to you. What a Saint you are to adopt a dog who needed love and care so badly. The reason she is having a fourteenth birthday is because of you!!! And here’s to fourteen more Aissa!!! 🙂

    Karma and crew, , thanks again for always being us smiles!

    WE LOVE YOU DEARLY!!!! Yes, we do!!!

    Sally and Alumni Happy Hannah and Merry Myrtle too!

    OMG what a pathetic before picture. Poor l’il baby girl. But you have made up for it big time! To have had such a difficult start in life and now rockin’ it at 14 is a testament to the wonderful care and love you have given her. Aissa May is one lucky girl to have ended up with you as her mama Karma! Looks like she had a grrreat birthday party and enjoyed every second 🙂 That Addie is one crazy girl! Love that photo of her.
