Shortly after her rescue, Marie was found to be heartworm positive, and began treatment. As we all know, this treatment is very hard on a dog, especially one that is already in poor health from living in a puppy mill.
Marie, unfortunately, was not strong enough to withstand the treatment, and in early March, she found her Forever Home on the other side of The Rainbow Bridge.
Please take a moment to mourn this little girl, and send consoling thoughts to her Foster Parents, Shelly & Paul Joyce.
I would like to thank Shelly & Paul for making Marie's last hours probably the best of her entire life. I know this could not have been easy to handle but thank you for being there for her.
. . . the tears are flowing
My heart goes out to Shelly & Paul. It's never easy but you gave this Little Lady Love & Comfort when she needed it the most. Thank You for that.
How sad . . . but at least Marie got to experience love & safety thanks to Shelly & Paul. Much doggieZen.
What a shame. She had such a sweet face! Thoughts are with Shelly & Paul.
At least Marie's last days were filled with love and not in some nasty mill! Another beauty awaits their love! Our thoughts are with them.
I am so thankful that Marie left this life knowing what could have been.Thank you for giving her this!
When I first read of Marie's passing I felt so sad, but then I realized she had love at the end. She had care, food and someone to hold her. I thank God for CRUSA and her foster parents who gave her this for what little time she had. She's running free now and having the time of her life. Bless her little head.
My heart is heavy and tears swell . . . that sweet litle girl finally has her everlasting freedom.
Many thanks to Shelly & Paul that Marie had some care & happiness before she went to The Rainbow Bridge. My prayers are that my Caper met Marie and has shown her all of the great spots and warm, cuddly places to lie.

At Rainbow Bridge, it has been said, departed pets who have been dearly loved by owners in life, play and wait in meadows. When they hear their loved ones call, they rush to meet them and they cross Rainbow bridge together, never to
be parted again.
What has not been told is the fate of the orphans, the strays, the unloved, abused or neglected fur babies who also play in the meadows and wait for someone to call their name and cross over the Bridge with them.
In life these fur babies had no special person to love and care for them. And even though they may have been beaten, kicked, starved or otherwise abused or neglected, their hearts are only full of love and forgiveness.
Every time one of these special ones sees a human soul, she, too, becomes excited, hoping maybe this will be the person who will love her and take her across The Bridge. Sometimes their wait seems long. But suddenly one hears her name being called. Startled, heart beating wildly, she looks in the direction of the voice. All fear and sadness depart and she runs eagerly to meet her new loved one. Tears and licks, hugs and nudges abound.
The person who has called her name also was unloved, abused or neglected in life. Now they both have found purity of unconditional love that was missing in life and together they cross over The Rainbow Bridge.
