It was a day that tears flowed freely down the cheeks of volunteers and staff members alike, at Carson Animal Care when a ten-year-old Welsh Corgi was surrendered to the shelter half-wrapped in a black plastic garbage bag and carried in an old cardboard box. It was the worst day in Blackie’s life as her selfish owners refused financial assistance to help treat their dog who had an untreated, bloody tumor at the base of her tail. In fact, that was the reason they tied their dog of ten years in a garbage bag – so she would not bleed on the seat of their vehicle.
And when they arrived at the shelter, the family showed no regrets, no guilt and little compassion as they adamantly said no to any veterinarian advice or help. Yet, despite her family turning their backs on her when she needed them the most, Blackie remained happy as the staff removed the plastic garbage bag, cleaned her up and made her comfortable. It wasn’t long however before Blackie’s desperate plight garnered the attention of animal lovers everywhere.
On Monday, Blackie, accompanied by her rescuers Frosted Faces Foundation, made her freedom walk out of the shelter. She has been brushed, bathed, had her nails trimmed and ate a hearty meal of salmon and vegetables – a spa treatment fit for royalty. She was laced into a new spring collar and told she was loved.
“Blackie is so small, wants to be held tightly and just wants everything to turn out okay because she keeps looking at us for recognition and approval,” Frosted Faces Foundation posted on their Facebook page as Blackie’s new life began. “We think she may know that being Frosted is a good thing by the say she struts.”
On Tuesday, Blackie is scheduled to be examined at High Valley Veterinary Hospital. Her tails really bothers her.
