Not A Lot Holds Twinklet Back These Days
The story of Twinklet is one of courage and character. She’s a dog who shows a joie de vivre which we can all learn from. Nothing seems to dim her spirit or dull her wish to get what she can out of each day. This determination undoubtedly kept her alive in the puppy farm through all the years of cruel confinement. Her surgery yesterday went smoothly and I asked Donna how she’s getting on,
While DBARC had it’s own unique take on Black Friday, with Manager Janet North’s young collie Obi needing urgent referral to an orthopaedic specialist, my own youngster George being admitted for emergency surgery to remove a foreign body, and various other problems amongst the rescue animals, our little starlet Twinklet shone through the gloom!
If ever there was a dog who filled the starlet criteria it’s Twinklet. An arty, black and white portrait is simply the only way to present her new one-eyed look, one she’s rocking like a true starlet..
Everyone, but me especially, was concerned that she had to undergo surgery yet again, to remove her sightless eye that was causing problems. How much more could this tiny little girl endure? But Twinklet yet again proved she really is a survivor. Left at the Vets wearing her full Moo Moo and Bear Schnauzerfest outfit for luck, she sailed through the surgery and was back with us in the afternoon with a very neat scar, and clearly elated by the experience! Despite having been fed at the Vets she was soon tucking into chicken, was happy to see all her friends, and once home, was soon bouncing around as though nothing had happened. Because she has to be only with her friends when supervised due to her surgical wound, she did eventually decide to settle down in her brand new cosy bed I had bought her especially for the event.
River is fascinated by the Buster collar and thinks she should try to tow Twinklet around by it! I am so amazed by little Twinklet. She has such a positive approach to her life, and although she is going to need special care for a while now, she is just a joy to see, and I am so relieved.
I am so grateful for all the support from the DBARC team, and all the well wishes from everyone on social media as I absolutely know all the positive vibes really make a difference. Please may I ask that everyone continues to send them for Twinklet as she recovers, and also for Obi and George, who are thankfully both safely through their surgeries, but now on the long road to recovery.
