Augusta was one of three found by a real estate agent
out in the country near Hockley, TX in August of 2007. Their
owner had died. They were very sick, all HW pos and had maggots.
Top left is the day she arrived at our house. Augusta in particular
had very serious ear infections, requiring monthly surgery which
she is still undergoing as of July 2008. Her ear canals swell
up, and pseudomonis bactera gets trapped behind the ear drum.
Her left ear shows improvement, the right is still on the mend,
but requires monthly surgery. Her teeth may still need extraction.
The next vet visit will determine that. She is also being treated
homeopathically. Her foster parents have adopted her because
her health issues have been so great. And because she has taken
charge of all the other boys in the household, foster dad and
cat included. She is the only female in the house. Her favorite
boy is Andy, the golden retriever pictured with her bottom left.
