Vixie Doodle loves Love!
She doesn't like it when it's time for nail trims or teeth brushing.
Whatever toy her boyfriend is playing with.
Orijen Freezedried Lamb Treats or Evanger's Rabbit
Anywhere with people she can meet and love on.
"Be cute Doodle! Be cute!! Awwwe good girl."
I was visiting the local Animal Shelter just to see the puppies. When I saw Vixie, I knew she was my little fur baby and I had to have her!! She came home and now I can't imagine not having her in my life.
About 2 weeks after I got my little Doodle, she took a little tumble down the stairs. We think she had been playing with the Kitty and just lost her balance. (I hadn't even thought about a baby gate. This was the first time I had ever had stairs and it just didn't cross my mind.)
We took her to the Emergency Vet and got her all bandaged up. It was a clean break, she was young so it had a great chance of healing without surgery.
Two weeks later, we took her to get it re-examined at a regular vet and he didn't take the Splint off to check the leg. Well, we didn't like him very much, he kept telling us we should go see a surgeon and we just didn't have the money for surgery. He made it sound like she wouldn't heal without surgery.
So, we went to a new doctor. He took x-rays of her leg and told us her leg was doing GREAT! It was healing properly and lining up good. 3 more weeks and our baby would be back to normal!
Well, when he removed the splint, her little foot had died. It was just dead tissue. I was devastated. It just killed me that my baby had been suffering and not shown any signs of distress. She ate normally, drank water regularly, went potty and was all around a cheerful pup.
Our new Vet kept our baby for a week and when her little paw was not getting better, he decided we needed to amputate. Unfortunately she lost the whole arm (her front right leg) but she is going to make a full recovery.
She will live a normal, happy life despite the loss of the limb.
