I’m Echo and I want to share my story with you
I’m 8 years old and I’m a grey and white, female Siberian Husky. I’m sure I had a beautiful lustrous coat many years ago but because of being so ill, I don’t rightly remember.
On the 20th of May this year, I was left at the pound by my owner, specifically to be euthanised. Why? They told the ranger that I had killed a cat. As you read further, you’ll understand why this is so ridiculous. The ranger at the pound called my saviours at HAMR and told them of my plight. I was picked up asap by one of HAMR’s amazing extended family and taken to my equally amazing new foster home.
Now here’s why it’s ridiculous about me killing a cat because since being under the care of the HAMR family, I have been to the vet on a weekly basis and I have been diagnosed with diabetes and diabetes induced cataracts. With the poor eyesight that I have, the chance of me actually catching a cat is pretty slim as I even have trouble finding my fluffy toys let alone anything that moves and is more than 2 meters away from me.
My diabetes has also affected my coat being able to grow back after some dimwit shaved it some years ago, which means at this time of year, I have to wear something a Siberian Husky should never have to wear, a jumper to keep warm, even during the day sometimes. My old owner left me at the pound without even that, it was so cold there and I didn’t sleep very well at all. My HAMR family made sure I had one and it’s pretty pink to match my princess personality. Now at least I don’t shiver all the time and can sleep comfortably.
My immune system has been sent to rock bottom because of my untreated diabetes, leading to my struggling body fighting simple things for weeks, which a healthy strong dog could shake off in a matter of days. I have a mass on my rear left leg that still needs to be removed but this can’t happen until my diabetes is stabilised. I have had ear issues as well as an anal gland abscess and my family at HAMR have been doing everything they can to get me to a healthy place where I can have my surgery for the following.
- Remove mass on rear left hind leg.
- Remove large skin tag on inside rear left hind leg.
- Full ear flush and investigation.
- Full scale and clean of teeth with removal of any looking suspect.
Now don’t let all of the above make you too sad for me. I am currently in an amazing foster home and they are taking better care of me than I have ever had in my life. I get to go walking, which I love!! I get round the clock cuddles, which I also love!!! I get to be inside and sleep on the bed, which I love!!!
I’m going to the vet every week and having my glucose levels closely monitored. I’m so close to being at the right dose now and I’m feeling much sprightlier and am getting my cheek back. Even knowing that I will need two insulin shots a day, for the rest of my life, doesn’t bother me because I’m starting to feel so much better.
So while I’m busy getting made all sparkling new and healthy with the help of all of my HAMR family, if you think you could be the person I should have met many years ago as a puppy and you can keep me in good health with two insulin shots a day, I know my peeps at HAMR would love to hear from you. They’ll pass on your message to me, they’re good like that
