Hi it’s Charly, KOIT's proud #CrazyCatLady & avid dog lover. When I’m not hanging with my five furry family members, I’m volunteering with animals, enjoying a Bay Area microbrew or touring a dog-friendly vineyard. >^..^<
Dog Days Of Surgery, Part 1

Sasha, my 4-1/2 yr old German Shepherd, in her #1 favorite place on earth - the San Francisco Bay at Crissy Field Beach. (Above & below.)
Nothing makes my heart soar more than watching joyous energy radiate from her soul as she runs through the surf, always hoping to entice other dogs to play. Sasha lives to run & play.
Chasing the dream at Ft. Funston (kangaroo style).
Searching for new friends to greet at Ft. Funston.
Sadly, she was recently diagnosed with elbow dysplasia. Severe arthritis has set in (as young as she is), hindering her ability to run and play. I was informed that even with surgery, she will never go back to being the way she was.
I cried for days.
Eyes that see into your soul.
My big-little girl made the pages of "QVegas Magazine" in an adoption success story in Oct 2011. (She's a shelter rescue.)
After many veterinarian consultations, Sasha is on a course to restore as much of her mobility as possible. Her journey has just begun, and will be covered in many blogs to come. Her procedures are not all set in stone by a long shot, but at least she is off and... (oops, not running. not yet) But that IS the goal. Freedom on the beach for Sasha.
