They only wanted the best for Whitney and this little girl made it clear to them that the best thing to do was to keep fighting.
The dog clung to life and with her efforts she made it impossible for them to give her the injection.
After a few days the dog managed to feed herself without the help of the tube, it was removed and the best of all is that Withney began to overcome the anemia she was suffering from.
