Puppy mills are a huge problem in North Carolina and Svennie was one of the many, many dogs that have to suffer the consequences of our lack of laws and punishments. A year ago, Svennie was rescued during a puppy mill raid. She was only 6 months old but she was already left with the everlasting health effects...including meningitis. Her parents gave her all the medical care, love, and feeling of home that she was denied for the first part of her life. Despite all of their efforts, the balancing act between Svennie's prednisone and meningitis became too much for her delicate body to handle. Sadly, we scheduled her Angel Session as she was being weaned off her last round of meds.
Willow, Svennie's sister, joined in on the session too. She provided some comic relief for what was a very heartbreaking session.Some of my favorite images were of Svennie with her mom. Although they only got to share 1 year together, their love was like no other.Rest in peace, sweet Svennie. We will do all we can in your honor to make this puppy mill problem a thing of the past.
