Hello everyone! The past nine months have been quite eventful for Mira. She is down to 43 pounds and her sugar is under control and easy to regulate. Both Mira and her foster family have discovered that treats are called treats because they have a lot of sugar in them that cause her blood sugar to go high! Mira attended a lot of CCDAL events and helped raise money for her care with her adoption pouch. She is a very sweet and easy going girl who gets along with everyone and everything. She also attended the Virginia Federation of Humane Societies' annual conference and was a big hit among all the attendees.
In April Mira needed cataract surgery because she was losing her vision. She did very well during surgery and came home, but unfortunately Mira went blind. All of the doctor's were perplexed because her eyes looked fine after surgery, but she obviously could not see. It is believed she had a stroke at some point post-op and lost her vision. She has adapted to her life, but it was not the outcome everyone was hoping for.
CCDAL has decided that Mira should live her life out in her foster home where she is very comfortable and everything is familiar. Mira still requires all the diabetic supplies to keep her sugar regulated so any donations towards her care are always appreciated! Click here for ways to donate. 5/28/12 Hello! I am Mira, a very sweet, smaller framed, 12 years young, purebred Dalmatian. I came from a shelter in West Virginia that CCDAL has worked with before. Not much is known about me because I was left in the fenced in area during off hours and the staff found me in the morning when they arrived. We can only guess why I was left at the shelter without any explanation. My foster family came and visited with me and decided to bring me to their home since I was so sweet and gentle. I made fast friends with their ten year old son, and really like being around other dogs so I would fit into the family fast. They also suspect that I am deaf because I did not seem to hear them unless I was looking at them. The next day, I was loaded into the car and went to the CCDAL reunion party! It was a lot of fun with all the dogs there, and I was told that I was a very good girl. Everyone was concerned about the large fatty deposit on my back and all were guessing as to what I had. I loved the large buckets of water because at that point I was just so thirsty!
I went to the vet the next day and the very large fatty deposit on my back and rear end turned out to be fat and I have diabetes! That explained my constant obsession with the water bowl and why I would chirp and pace when it was empty! The vet suspects that I weighed about 100 pounds at one time in my life and that is how I developed diabetes and then I lost the weight in the front, but not in the back. Yikes! That is a lot of weight for my small frame. I was also already spayed, had no internal parasites, and had a hematoma on my ear surgically repaired so someone was taking care of me. I also really like people food which makes my foster family wonder if someone thought feeding me a lot would make me happy when in reality it made me really sick!! I am a very easy going girl, but can be stubborn and I really love my bed. I also like to be outside and going on walks. Tank (a former CCDAL dog) is one of my buddies and we go outside together. I was so excited to see him when we first took a walk together. Keslo (another CCDAL dog) is still not sure of me so he will walk with me, but stays on a leash. I understand that he is afraid of new things, I think he had a hard life before he come into rescue and now his furever home, but I am sure in the end we will be buds.
So now, my main goal is to get my sugar regulated and stay regulated so I am well enough to have surgery to remove a small growth on my eyelid and to get my teeth cleaned! They are really bad and all new d
