Approximately 10 yrs. ago we rescued Pooji Jude from a puppy mill. She was only 8wks old & had "precious" written all over her face. We found after taking her to our vet for what we thought was a sore on her leg that she had a fungal infection which had entered her bloodstream. It took a number of weeks and injections, but she survived. Two years later I suffered a severe viral infection which made me bedridden for 18mos. during which time Pooji only left my side for calls of nature. She was a "super nurse" and companion during those dark days. Today, we've grown old together and I give thanks for our little gift from heaven.
