I am Pepe and I wish I could show you a video of my life prior
to October of 2003 - that's when it all changed.
My former Mom passed away of old age and left
me in the care of FOTA Rescue Society. They put me into a foster
home in North Vancouver with a wonderful family who really helped
me through the grieving period. They accepted me just the way
I was - 11 years old, about 40lbs overweight ( I weighed 112lb),
unable to walk stairs due to bad knees and arthritis, unable to
hold my water - one vet actually thought I had Cushing Disease
and they were going to put me on some kind of a drug. My coat
was lifeless and my skin scaly, dry and itchy. I did not see very
well in those days either - that's why I snapped when someone
gave me a biscuit.
My eyes were grey and everyone thought I wasn't
going to be around for long but Auntie Anne took me for walks
every day - and every week we walked a little bit further.
I was put on Holistic blend good quality dog
food , SeaMeal and lots of Nurtritionals. Here's the regime they
started me on back in October - the USANA moments, they used to
AM with breakfast: 1 Coquinon, 2 Proflavanol, 2 Procossa, 2 Bio
PM with dinner: 1 Coquinon, 2 Proflavanol, 2 Procossa , 2 Bio
I was on this for about three month.
Then it changed to:
AM with breakfast: 1 Coquinon, 1 Proflavanol, 2 Procossa, 2 Bio
PM with dinner : 1 Proflavanol, 2 Procossa, 2 Bio 3
Now, it's May - and I am a totally new doggie.
I have lost about 20lbs, I go for two walks a day, I meet the
doggie crowd on the trails and on our street, I play fetch, my
coat is shiny, I have had bladder control for a long time and
I can see - my eyes are nearly clear. I roll in the grass and
I thank God every day for this wonderful family who are now my
guardians until I either find a permanent home or I go home forever.
I know that I have a quality of life which I
have not had before and I am free of pain and suffering - without
drugs and their side effects. Thank you FOTA for giving me this
care and thank you Uncle Collin and Auntie Anne for believing
in me and thank you Uncle Ray and Auntie Susan for giving me a
