We were blessed to have known and loved this precious soul from the time she opened her little eyes to the world.

Despite her extraordinary combined medical conditions - Oakley was LOVE in its purest form.

19 months to the day - this source of joy spent every moment of her life knowing love - and giving love.

Early this morning - June 28th, 2014 - Oakley curled up in her favorite spot after breakfast.... and simply, didn't wake up.

With so many internal deformities and the severity of her conditions - we knew that she would go when she was ready... I just thought she'd have given us some sign.  :(

I am content in knowing that she chose - and I would never have to.... content in knowing that there was no pain - only peace.... but it's still tough to wrap my mind around.

We can't slow down around here... even for the greatest heartache.  There is just too much work to do - too many counting on us.

We shouldn't mourn the loss - but rather, celebrate the life.... the life that never would have been - without the love and compassion of so many who's hearts and lives were touched by the little soul in need from across the country.

My little Pinto Pony - you will be in my heart, for always...

Saving Oakley


"there is absolutely nothing we can do for this little dog"

I can't accept that...

I realize that the complexity of Oakley's combined conditions is something that has never before been seen / documented in veterinary medicine - but simply due to that, there is no way to predict the outcome if SOMETHING were to be done to help her.

How is veterinary medicine to advance - if the skilled, do not seek to confront the unknown?

There MUST BE a way to help her... there MUST BE something out there.... we just have to start thinking "out of the box".

The door to a higher learning and inspired possibilities is open here, while there are few who are willing to walk through... somewhere, there is one... and that's all Oakley needs.

Oakley's plight must be heard!

We need your help!

"This dog has a myriad of congenital defects, none of which appear to be correctable."
