margotinthesummer 2 years ago tonight this little mama-to-be was in labor.. Some of you know will remember her story. I'd gotten Ethel from the shelter shortly before and she was due to go on transport to a rescue and foster in Michigan. However, there was a big snow storm and Ethel being a heart worm positive senior in poor health, I didn't trust that she'd survive the journey and I kept her with me. I'd also felt a strong connection with her as soon as I met her and I just couldn't hand her over without a huge heaviness in my heart that just felt wrong. She became very bloated immediately following that decision and I rushed her to the vet, fearing she was in heart failure. Nope. Not heart failure. At 11 years old, Ethel was pregnant with two puppies.. Lots of second opinions, different opinions, yada yada. It was finally officially confirmed. But this wasn't good news. Never really is in rescue, but with a senior in bad health? No. Not happiness. Only worry. She was so far along we were advised not to spay. Instead we'd do a C-Section. No one really thought the puppies were going to be born alive and Ethel has a bad back and bad knees and it was assumed she wouldn't survive a natural birth. The doctor wanted to wait until she was very close.. Like *in labor* close.. and it happened. She had been panting, pacing, nesting more than usual. I called the doctor and was arranging to meet him at his office when the first little puppy, Meadow, was born right then and there. I screamed and squeaked and squealed like a fifth grade girl (<--the doctors reference..)! It would be 11 hours before the next puppy would come. You might wonder if that's an unusually long time between births. It is. Arrow was born though, alive and healthy and well. 2 fat little beans. Since this time Ethel has been spayed, undergone slow kill heart worm treatment, had 3 hernias surgeries and we are about to schedule a 4th. She gets abnormally bloated when she eats and can't walk (this isn't new). She only likes her own puppies and is still extremely bonded with them (yes, I kept them). She is a cranky old lady and she's my soul dog. I love you Ethel! 1d

  •   antikythera_mechanism Totally! He's he man!! Hey, go to my other page here "totorismyhero" we've all decided we're fed up with partaking in the slaughter of animals. I was vegan and vegetarian my whole life, when my husband past away in 2009 I started eating anything. I've had so much guilt for knowing better deep down, but not staying strong. Anyway, we're on day 7 of zero meat. I think we will be pescatarian at first. But I'm DONE with land animals. DONE!!! @margotinthesummer you are an inspiration, that's why in telling you all this! 2d
  •   margotinthesummer Awwww!!! @antikythera_mechanism that's exciting!!!!! I literally squealed! Even making the effort is a huge act of kindness and I commend you, but 7 days is amazing!! That's 7 days worth of less destruction and less suffering in the world. I remember your story, you told me and I love your heart. Thank you for saying I'm an inspiration, but I think your heart is pure gold and you're really your own inspiration. But I'll take the comment with gratitude regardless. So much love to you! (I'll check out the other page) 2d
  •   antikythera_mechanism I knew you would support me with this! I feel so much better in every sway possible. Once I set my mind to something it's like iron. I will triumph! The whole fam is onboard, that's the best part!!! Love you lady! Xoxoxoxoxox 2d
