Alma (aka Aza), pretty girl from Pittsboro, NC

As promised here are some photos of the sweet girl Alma (aka Aza, I felt she deserved a new name for the new life - she did not respond to Aza) from the Pittsboro, NC shelter. Alma means soul in Spanish and I think she has the most soulful eyes.

She was listed as senior - I don't think she is one. However, she looks very pregnant (although the vet did not think so when he gave her the vaccs on Friday). Thanks to the wonderful volunteers, Carrie and Georgia, Alma made it out of the shelter and escaped a death by mass gassing. We are hoping that her abdomen is just puppies and not something serious. Carrie and Georgia pulled off a miracle shelter pull&transport within two days. Alma sends sloppy kisses to all the members who stood by her and offered help.

Her new name is beautiful as is the meaning. Wow, her tummy is really sagging. We're all praying that there are puppies in there and not something else... She's just as beautiful as can be. Good luck tomorrow and we'll be anxious to hear what the vet has to say...

Oh my, Cila, that last image kills me. That photo DOES scream Alma! If she is preggie, may all her puppies look just like her! [img]/ubbthreads/images/graemlins/18_thumb.gif[/img]

By the way, if she IS eight years old, is pregnancy possible? If her exact age were known, would that add much insight as to what's going on with her belly?

Re: Alma (aka Aza), pretty girl from Pittsboro, NC

They can be pregnant at 8yo, I believe. On the other hand why not think the obvious? She belonged to a breeder, why wouldn't she be pregnant? She does not act sick and eats like crazy. I think she would act very sick with a mass of that size in her abdomen.

I love those eyes. She is such a good girl, she has not even had an accident in the house. She loves to chew too, like a puppy. Whatever it is, I am happy she is not at the shelter.

Re: Alma (aka Aza), pretty girl from Pittsboro, NC

Thanks everybody, Alma is tucked in for the night after the fourth big meal of the day and she sends hugs to everybody. She loved the fish part of the dinner most.
She is such a sweet, good girl. We are waiting...
I'll be rearranging the guest room for her and for the kids' swimming pool for her and babies.
