Thank you everyone for your words of support to Bonnie, this lovely girl is such a beautiful old lady, She has settled in here so well and follows me everywhere. Her eyesight is failing and if I move too far away from her she thinks I have gone and she barks non-stop until she can see or hear me. The other Collies are so good with her, it is as if they know she is ill and only has a short time with us so they treat her so gently.

There is nothing wrong with her appetite and nothing she doesn't eat, paws x'd it stays that way for her. I cook pasta, meat and vegetables every night and she just loves the warm meal and also my vegemite on toast which I share with her as she puts her head on my lap when I am eating, so I cant resist can I ;)

Its always so hard losing the golden oldies that come to us near the end of their lives as they are such special souls and I know I want to try to make it up to them for the abuse and neglect that they have suffered in their short life :(

Lovely girl that she is! She's really enjoying her forever home. So good her appetite is hearty. The flesh will come back to those ribs!
When our elderly sheltie went gradually blind, I used to leave something on his day bed that strongly had my scent on it.
Update pics will always be welcome. :(

Sorry for the delay but here is a recent picture of Miss Bonnie. She has put weight on and yesterday after she had eaten her breakfast, little Keelie went over to see if there was a morsel of something on the floor and Bonnie thought Keelie was getting something she had left behind and Bonnie flattened her. It was hilarious, poor Keelie was stunned at being attacked by the old grandmother :mad

I cant believe how well she is doing for someone with cancer and for that reason I never thought I could get some weight on her , she is beautiful and truly amazing :)

There have been a couple of times where one of the other Collies have run into her and knocked her over as they have turned to chase a ball and she has been right in their path, well she goes after them and grabs a mouthful of their fur and has such a cranky look on her face, it's so funny watching her seek revenge :eek:

Don't mess with Gran! is her motto.
I love her fighting spirit. :D
No wonder she's doing so remarkably well, in the face of cancer.

I too love her spirit :) :( . She loves it so much here with the other Collies and inside the house with a full belly twice a day, she is determined that she is not giving it up without a fight, beautiful old lady :rofl:

These wonderful Gran (& Gramps) dogs are inspirational. We keep saying they finish up giving us more than we can ever give them. :shrug:

It's good to hear she's feeling well enough to try and put the whipper snappers in place! :thumbsup: This really is a beautiful rescue story and I am so happy that she is going to see out her days in a happy place. :thumbsup:
