Delaying what they call "treatment" due to cancer and heartworms? Oh for heaven's sake! She is a DOG! Put the poor critter to sleep already! Hasn't she suffered enough?

Maybe we should 'blast' the FB page with our views, instead of the 'Hero Worship' that's going on. (I just did)

These vets need to be slapped...IMO.

I know you and I have posted there already but the cries for the "hero dog" ... you just can't reason with them. Common sense went out the window. How dare we say "put that poor dog to sleep" because "miracles happen" you know.

Makes me so mad!

I blogged about it. Head over Heels into Dog Handling: Put Kabang out of her Misery!

Can't keep my mouth shut any longer.

I'm one of those who can't/won't open the link, but after reading everyones comments I have to agree with those who have looked and saw that this is gruesome ... I can't believe that the University of California, Davis, which has such a good national reputation, would want to do anything more than put this poor dog down, especially after finding it also has HW and cancer ... inhumane!!!

It's sad that people won't see that the kindest thing is to put this dog to sleep. I think this has a lot to do with people wanting to 'save' this dog to make themselves feel good or to prove that they have performed a 'cutting edge' procedure.

And you cannot argue with them, at all.

They are like "But she is so happy,she obviously isn't in pain then"
"If this was your child, wouldn't you do everything to save your child?"

Drives me crazy!

Sometimes I think people can love an animal too much,at the point of it becoming selfish to keep them alive. I can't believe some of these facebook people can't see the bigger picture here.

Dear Lord. The dog has no face, no eyes. How on earth does she eat, smell, lick??? The pain must be excruciating. AND she has heartworm and cancer. Please let her go already. I wouldn't want to live if this was ME!! I don't think it is fair to do it to a dog. Sheesh!

Playing Devil's Advocate here ---

This "accident" happened Dec 2011. Love/Hero Story concocted by owners, & donations start pouring in. TEN MONTHS LATER - the dog - & her human family - have enough $$ to travel to Calif.

They're here - UCD will "fix" the dog's face (I'm telling ya - stay away from training institutions - they ALWAYS experiment. Watched Stanford University do it to my mother).

Now - they have to delay because of other medical issues. OK - arsenic for Heartworm. Chemo for her cancer. And IF she survives - "we'll fix her face".

WTH - are you kidding me?????????????????????

[sarcasm] Oh no, don't you know? She's such a happy dog and shows in her every move that she wants to live. The pain can't be that bad since she's such a happy dog. And if that was your child, wouldn't you want to save her?[/sarcasm]

I'm not kidding, those are the comments I got after posting my "Put her to sleep already" on their facebook. Makes me sick how blinded these people are, but hey, we are the blind ones, for not seeing, how happy she is and the chance she deserves because of that.

GRRRR!
