Tribute: There is one person's voice I do not want to hear at 8:00am and that is Dr. VanMaele's. This timing has become all too familiar as San Diego Bay Animal Hospital has cared for our Frosted Faces for over three years. I know she hasn't gotten to the hospital yet, but she bears the burden of relaying the bad news that morning staff report.

Quincy did not make it through the night.

We rescued 9 year old Quincy on January 21st, 2018 from Downey Shelter after he came in as a stray. He was hospitalized for two days with oxygen, nebulizing treatments, antibiotic injections, and fluids. We actually thought he was doing better yesterday and discussed discharging him last night. He looked bright, his oxygen saturation was normal, and he seemed comfortable aside from some boogers. We decided to keep him in the hospital's care for one more day because he wasn't eating yet and we thought by today he may.

We learned in x-ray that his coughing was a result of horrendous collapsing trachea which we suspect ultimately ended his life because it was such a sudden unexpected decline. Other suggestions of cause of death were a possible unidentified sternal mass or a blood clot.

Silence sets in and tears well up. There was no grand final good bye, no perfect beach day, no last amazing meal. I can tell you we spooned on the bathroom floor for a good part of Sunday evening. He got a warm bath to soak off all the urine that had caked on his legs due to his immobility at the shelter. I think where I will rest easy is that we are blessed with adequate funding because of your generous donations that allowed us to give Quincy a fighting chance with no reservations. I am happy that we had the opportunity to support Quincy, rather than seeing him euthanized without justification. Thank you.

Thank you to Mary Havens for registering to be Quincy's monthly sponsoring Fan and offering him the gift of hope.

Dear Quincy, we loved you.

Tribute: On April 10th, 2018, 8 year old Betty passed away.

We acquired Betty, formerly Louise/Fauna, from Hope For Paws just recently on January 30th, 2018. She had been surrendered into their care when her owner went to prison for a very long time. They did complete diagnostics, even performing dental surgery and removing lipomas. She wasn't at Frosted Faces Foundation very long, because she was SUCH a good girl.

She was adopted on February 19th and just last week her moms noticed she was struggling to breathe so they rushed her to the vet. They tapped 3 liters of fluid from her lungs! They did all of the recommended diagnostics, no masses, no heart issues, no evidence in the fluid itself, and all they could deduce was that she had some kind of cancer causing the fluid build up. Sound familiar? Multiple vets recommended euthanasia to prevent suffering during more fluid accumulation and Betty's family lovingly let her go.

"Goodbye, our sweet Betty. You came into our lives for such a very short time, but brought so much to our little family. You were a gentle soul, the depth of which could be seen in your beautiful brown eyes. We are so grateful that we could give you a home filled with love at the end. Be free, and know that you will always be with us. 💕"

Paulette Gagnon and Nancy Atkins, I know your hearts were not prepared for loss so soon. Thank you for stepping up to the responsibility of caring deeply and letting go unselfishly. Thank you to Renata Santeli for being Betty's dedicated monthly sponsoring Fan.

These photos are worth a thousand words and one very important promise fulfilled - family.

Tribute: May 31st, 2018, we fulfilled our promise to 10 year old Christina.

We rescued Christina from OC Animal Care on April 13th, 2018 on the day she was slated for euthanasia. She had an inguinal hernia and was declining. We fixed her all up and you can read her incredible story here, where she flat-lined twice, became neurologic, and recovered!: https://www.facebook.com/frostedfacesfoundation/posts/1906366582759216

The biopsy of her spleen came back as a mammary carcinoma. This is not good, it is rare, and means that her cancer was spreading.

Just two weeks ago we took Christina to San Diego Bay Animal Hospital for congestion, and we learned that she had fluid build up around her lungs. We tapped it for her relief and found cancer cells. The time that we thought we had bought her after her major procedure got washed away. We were down to weeks or days with our girl. Christina had most really good days the last two weeks, and only a few bad days.

We called her our zombie because she had come back from the dead, and when she was feeling good, she was a feisty one! She would chase and bite the heels of Duncan and Diesel if they got anywhere near her bed, and bite us if we tried to help her! There was a point last week where Christina was feeling better than her "okay" and was great! She came to check on me in the laundry room and followed me while I scooped poop in the yard. She never would have had the energy for that and it reminded me to slow down, scoop HER up, and smooch her all over her forehead and unusually tiny paws.

Volunteers took Christina on special outing to eateries, a lake, parks, wineries, and held her longer than she probably desired! She slept between our pillows at night, in her final days I made a bed up for her near me while I cleaned kennels, and she ate anything she darn well wanted. Some donated lamb was her last meal before she declined all things delicious.

On Christina's last day she lost the function of three of her legs, would not eat, and was terribly lethargic. After Christina had fought so hard to be alive multiple times, I told Andy I would never take her life from her. This girl wanted to be here so badly-

When it's time, it's time. It was that obvious, science doesn't lie, and we whispered to her that she didn't have to be so tough anymore. We could hardly tell when she slipped away.

Thank you to all of the Frosted Faces Foundation who loved on Christina. Thank you to Lisa Switzer for being her dedicated monthly sponsoring Fan.
