Floss was 14 and a 1/2 yrs old and she came into my life and my MoM's life way back in Oct of 2008. She was with 7 puppies who had been abandoned on Timber Creek road right by our house and we rescued all 7 and named them the Timber Creek Pack. ALL solid black and apparently liter mates. There was 4 Boys and 3 Girls. We brought them to our barn and took care of them...and found homes for the boys right away,,,We named each Pup The males were Remington, Buddy, Little Black, Brother, Daisey Mae, Flossie, and Last but not Least Annie Boo Boo Bear. We found homes for the males right away.
Flossie stood out with her beautiful BIG brown eyes....and long hair that resembled Foss or thread to me...
In the end and by November, this time we had only the 3 girls...
and they all 3 got sick...PARVO! WE found out these pups had survived by eating acorns and persimmons that fall on the ground in the fall they were about 4 months according to the vet.
So we tended them we got bags of saline from the vet with Antibiotics and each day they got 300 CC's of fluid...twice daily, we had them on heating pads and the kitchen became an infirmary. They all survived...but it took a week of intensive care.
Right during this time My Mom broke a hip and had to go into Hospital and have a hip replacement...so I was dealing with Being there for her and trying to care for the Puppies...getting them vetted and so on
My X husband John found a home for Daisy Mae...and i the end I said to Mom I cant deal with this anymore so lets just keep the last two Pups which was Floss and Annie!
They became part of the family and we as a family traveled all around the USA we hiked to nearly every upstate waterfalls in SC and they thrived on our homestead...Those dogs logged 1000's of miles of travel!
In 2010 Floss had an accident and partial tear of her ACL...but she did recover with 8 months rest and a high protein diet...but this past couple of years her mobility was declining,,,
Again in the middle of my own health crisis she went down hill very fast and could no longer stand or walk...so I choose to help into the afterlife after much hard deliberation...she is at Peace now and laid to rest right beside Casey (2004-2022).
She will forever be in my memories and my heart...she was loved by all my family and everyone who knew her...a super kind and gentle companion.
We will mourn you till we join you. Rest in Peace till then.
