Carmella's story


I ran across Carmella and her owner's story as I was reading some fellow Etsy artist's blogs. Carmella was adopted from a shelter but was discovered to have distemper, which is basically a death sentence. Her owner has blogged about this from the start, and it is an educational journey, as well as a love story. Her devoted owner called and pleaded with many veterinarians to do a risky procedure that could save Carmella's life. Finally there was hope... Please read more on this at http://artlifenewsblog.blogspot.com I have donated a necklace to benefit Carmella's vet bills, please check that out on ebay under seller id wildhorsemoon, item # 370093170485. Hug your dog today.

  1. We had a pup that had distemper..My uncle, who was a doctor, put him to sleep..It was a painful experience, since I was so young..My poor uncle, I hit him and cried, but never forgot our little pup..Frosty.

  2. Thanks so much for your contribution! I am posting about it on my blog right now!

    Carmella has had the procedure and is doing great and I hope that her story will help other dogs receive the treatment they need so that no dog needs to die directly or indirectly from Distemper.

    That must have been a gut-wrenching experience, rosebud. I have spoken with one or two other owners recently whose dogs met the same fate and they were devastated.

    I am so grateful that the right people came forward before it was too late to do this treatment and saved Carmella's life.

  4. I have been following this blog too and even suggested she add a donation widget to her blog, which she did, and I have donated that way. I'm so glad Carmella got the treatment she needed to save her life. She is such a sweet looking dog and she was a very caring and committed owner!

  5. That is sad- I am not going to read the story because I can't handle it right now- we just lost a 3 year old cat to diabetes and are still grieving her. Thank you for sharing though!
