Miss Frances T: A Very Special Doggie Dawg
Frances T. epitomized all the good things and all the bittersweet things that characterize the Thulani Program. Frances came into the program following mammary surgery, although the cancer had already spread. She came in determined to make the most of the extra time Thulani was giving her. She came in with energy, attitude, and ready to live life on her terms. Her personality was a beautiful match for her foster mom, Kathleen. This dynamic duo made history all over San Francisco.
Inevitably, Frances T. lost her fight with mammary cancer this week. But she took advantage of every minute of quality life Kathleen offered her. This is what the Thulani Program exists for.
Please read below about some of the adventures of Kathleen and Frances T. (Doggie Dawg).
Doggie Dawg, AKA Frances T., agenda was “Let’s go.” The consummate escape artist, she never would leave my side except for sighting of CAT. She knew how to open doors, drive cars, fly planes, take buses to find CAT.
Smart dog. She did look super cute when I pulled up– Her front paws on the bay window with the now busted wooden blinds behind her a backdrop . The jagged edges added soupcon of dangerous excitement to the scene. Clearly not her first time at the Rodeo.
