Please Light a Candle for Betsy

Betsy went to the Bridge late today after complications from bloat surgery. When they opened her up, they found her liver was in bad shape, along with her kidneys. DPR was hoping for the best after the surgery but it was not to be. But, at least she was loved and cared for during her time with rescue and had people with her that loved her in the end. I am so very, very sad for her.

Tears here. Yet She was blessed after a bleak, abusive life to be able to spend her remaining months among loving caring hands.

Thank you to all of the folks who made her last days on earth comfortable.

A miserable life that unfortunately ended when she finally landed in a caring person's heart and had at least some time being loved.

Betsy, you deserved a better life. It's a shame you didn't have it.

Thanks everyone. I heard from Betsy's caregiver and she is having her cremated and will be keeping her ashes. Somehow, when I heard this, I felt a little better.

I'm so sad to see this.

Dax, please pass on my condolences to the wonderful lady who opened her heart to this poor girl & gave her love & a home in her final months. Please let her know that dear sweet Betsy touched many hearts across the world & she will never be forgotten.

Run forever free Betsy. No one will hurt you any more sweetie.

I sent the link to this thread to Betsy's caregiver and she was so overwhelmed that Betsy had people care about her from all over the world.
