Tribute: Just six days ago. He was in very bad shape and an unidentified source was causing his belly to fill with fluid. On Monday we were able to relieve him of 5 liters of fluid, but yet could not identify the cause or develop a treatment plan because he still had so much fluid in his belly. We just kept loving on him, letting him rule the FFF lobby.

If it weren't for his shocking appearance as a result of illness and neglect, you would think he was a happy, laid back grandpa. He loved chewing on bones, and we adequately understood we may not have Arnie in our lives for very long, so we gave him a bone morning and night. He wagged his tail eagerly watching us scoop food, and he always got up and made the effort to be part of the hustle in the lobby. We acknowledged his interest with exuberance thankful he seemed to be embracing his new life. He got a lot of treats and sunshine, and I clearly remember the morning of his passing, squishing his face and pressing his mouth to mine. As gross as that sounds, I absolutely could not get enough of Arnie. I could never hold him tightly enough to make up for all that he had been denied.

Arnie passed between 2:00-2:30pm on his velvet blanketed dog bed naturally on his own. I feel regret for not being able to say "I love you" one more time or holding him as he endured the dying process in just one room over, but I have made peace with the fact that he died on a soft bed, indoors, after just having licked out a peanut butter Kong.

Thank you to all the volunteers who loved on Arnie with us, especially those who helped us grieve yesterday and get his remains to the vet. Arnie was a big boy!

Arnie, we love you.

Tribute: On Saturday, February 3rd, sweet Audrey passed away.

We rescued Audrey, formerly Leslie, on November 4th, 2017 from Baldwin Park Shelter after she was surrendered by her owners. We picked her up from an LA County adoption event hosted by Susie's Senior Dogs and Shelter Me. Upon arrival, we were questioning whether rescue is really what she needed rather than euthanasia. She was lateral and very vocal that she was in pain. We learned that she was a vocal dog anyways which dramatized her reaction to unpleasant movements. She was so painful in her hind quarters that she dragged herself and we explored our treatment options with euthanasia at the back of our minds.

We tried NSAIDS, but they were not effective. While many doctors reach for NSAIDS, our vets work closely with orthopedic specialists who tend to recommend steroids for painful backs. Once we switched Audrey to steroids it was as if witnessing a miracle! She pulled on leash and could push herself from a sit to stand smoothly. To think she wasn't even in a position where we were sure life over euthanasia was fair, Audrey suddenly became adoptable!

Adopted she became when a lovely family applied for Audrey alone. They had nursed a struggling shepherd once before and opened their hearts and home to our Audrey. They gave her every last good day from diapers to booties, until her body said it was all done.

Audrey only had eyes for her humans. She would walk directly to you and nudge your hand or elbow for pets. She was persistent and she deserved all the warmth this world has to offer dear dogs like her.

Her mom shared,
"Thank you for for rescuing Audrey and all of the other frosted faces out there. We took Audrey to the vet this morning and were relieved to be able to ease her out of her misery. Her passing was very peaceful."

Thank you to Bill and Susan Groux for choosing this special girl and making her incredibly happy. Thank you to Caryn & Michael Rosenstein for being Audrey's dedicated monthly sponsoring Fans.

Tribute: Yesterday evening we discovered that Jimmi had passed away. He looked as if he had passed in his sleep curled up under our bed.

We rescued Jimmi just three days ago on January 9th, 2018. OC Animal Care euth-listed him for medical reasons, but he only proved to seem social and content with us. He ate each meal, meowed for attention, slept on our bed nudging and kneading to be consoled, and ventured out of the catio to sit in the bathroom and watch us brush our teeth at the sound of our morning alarm.

Bloodwork showed that he was very anemic, but also regenerating red blood cells. We had started his treatment regimen of antibiotics and deworming. Poor Jimmi was probably bleeding internally and we just didn't know.

While natural animal deaths don't offend me because I can appreciate that humans pass naturally everyday, it bothers me that he passed alone. We don't rescue our Frosted Faces to endure the dying process without us, much less, unexpectedly and without a diagnosis or valiant effort.

Flabberghasted, Andy and I reflected how Jimmi came running at the sound of his food can opening the morning of his passing. He even hissed at our other cat, Lena, as she approached hoping to access her bowl too! We sincerely thought Jimmi was finally going to become our family cat that would stick around for awhile because he was easygoing and well.

We took his body to High Valley Veterinary Hospital to be cremated this morning. We, personally, never have a private cremation because we feel that expense is better used for a living animal, but we always get a paw print for one day when we have a spark of creativity, we can do something meaningful with oh so many paw prints of our loved and lost.

Thank you to Tim Gerrard, Lynn Norman in memory of Mo, and Mandi for being Fans of our Jimmi. We know the value of our Frosted Feline opening and will rescue again soon.

Tribute: Our Frosted Face Carter passed away on Tuesday, January 30th unexpectedly. Breathlessness is what I feel, so much so that I occasionally let out a whimper as if it will relieve the tension and pain.

We rescued Carter on January 16th, 2018 from County of San Diego Department of Animal Services-Carlsbad. He was blind, a super senior, but vibrant. His bloodwork was normal and his x-rays were evidence of a long life ahead. We did surgery to neuter him and remove an undescended testicle from his abdomen, we even did a dental procedure. He recovered fantastically.

We took him home and tucked him in between us at night. He wagged his tail and could see our shadows to bump his nose into our calves as we walked. We keep replaying how Carter was a happy humper in the play yard who wanted to eat all of the cookies, to being so ill with so few identifiable symptoms.

Just this past Friday he started looking quiet. We took him to San Diego Bay Animal Hospital where he was hospitalized with an oxygen saturation of 84%, but was discharged Monday evening bright, eating, and breathing well. X-rays showed some bronchial changes, but the condition of neither his lungs nor heart were alarming. On Tuesday evening he passed away naturally after resting in blankets most of the day, but still regularly getting up for water and going on a little afternoon walk. In the event that this was a virus we are running a respiratory disease PCR and culture on anyone who even looks glassy-eyed.

There are two moments I want to share with you about Carter's short time with us. Tuesday morning he climbed onto the patio furniture with the sun rising while I scooped breakfast. When I looked out, he had maneuvered into the pile of pillows and had his head raised and eyes closed with his ears extended in the breeze. It was Carter peacefully enjoying the beginning of his last day on Earth with sun shining on his face. It makes my heart hurt so much.

Carter's last hours were spent in the arms of volunteer, Angela Gunnett. She bathed him in a warm shower, wrapped him in a towel and held him like a baby while we bustled around her. Carter was looking good, and we were trying different foods to entice him. Angela held him so focused and lovingly, we even poked fun at her lack of help in the kitchen, "Don't get up, you're busy. I will bring that to you." For two hours she held him and stroked his head. Just one hour after she left for the night, Carter passed away.

No one registered to be his monthly sponsoring Fan (many have sponsored him since, and are listed above) and no one offered to foster him... so many tears. Just a symbol of how he has been unnoticed for so long and how we hardly had him for any time at all to tell him how special he was. We at FFF did invest significantly in his care, a total of $1,430.43 including his surgery and hospitalization and we invested so much of our hearts.

We love you, Carter.
