Cookie has been saved

Received from the Philippines on Sept. 25, 2015

Dear Sir,

This is Cookie, our pet who we rescued so many years ago that I dont even remember how old she is. Yesterday, she started coughing/sneezing and seems feverish. She doesn’t repond as fast to our calls and I feel that Cookie while sickshe has distemper. Why? Because just yesterday, her puppy died of distemper alhough we tried all treatments with the Vet. We did all we can to separate and isolate the puppy from Cookie but it seems that we failed.
Because Cookie is a rescued dog, we have no idea what breed or mix she is. Please help. I cannot lose another dog, especially not her. We live in Paranaque, Metro Manila, Philippines.
Please help us save Cookie. She is a family dog, surrounded by cats (who hate or tolerate her) and people (who love her). I know she’s old but please, please, please — I’d appreciate a few more happy, healthy years with her. She is a sweet dog that is very protective of our family and home.
I know I’m rambling. Sorry.
Please help save Cookie wookie.
Mae Calle
PS: She has been bleeding for the past few months but otherwise seemed healthy before this.

Hope was all I needed but you gave us a miracle. It’s been more than a week since we brought Cookie to Vets in Practice where she received a body shot and today, she is running around, happy & healthy. If I have not seen the devastating effect with our puppy, Mira, then I wouldn’t know know the impact of NDV was to Cookie.
Thank you so much for everything.

Dear Ed,

I’m so sorry it took so long for me to reply. Now that Cookie is back to her normal self, I’ve been busy catching up on chores we put aside while taking care of her & her puppy.
Anyway, here’s a picture of Cookie last week. I remember coming home one evening and missing her usual exuberant, barking welcome and thinking how I would give much just to see her like that again.CookieBetter Well, guess what? A week after her NDV shot, she started her daily welcome home routine again. So thank you, thank you, thank you. Thank you for your wonderful work!
Please feel free to share my email and her picture on your site.
Have a wonderful day!
You’re very welcome Mae! Thanks so much for sharing your story!
