[ Leave A Comment | 4 people already have ]

Hello all my Special Friends,
I have had request to get my yorkie butt in here and leave a update..BOL.. I have been so busy playing outside and walking and running I have not had time for much. And momma has opened a Doggie clothing online store. So she has been pretty busy too when she is not chasing me she is hard at work.
Well I know you are all panting wanting to know how I have been doing. Well I have been getting better and stronger every day. I go out every morning for 20 minutes I have to check everything out you know to make sure nothing is out of place and if it is I have to find out why..BOL I have found I don't only have squirrels living in my yard but we think a cat has moved in under our shed because he comes out and chats with me here and that. I like him but Bubba doesn't.. That cat can run..BOL.. I have also been watching this chipmunk running all over the place I think he lives in the ground. Boy does he have a big mouth he chirps when I am trying to sleep and I just want to walk over to the door and tell him to put a nut in it..BOL
I love to run in the grass and run to my dad. Video link included here. Running for my Dad . I am doing super great as my mom would say.
We are doing a lot to help other pups with the same congenital defect as I have. Mom has always kept these pups close to her heart.
If any of my friends would like to come and see our New store please check me out at www.WBBPawsomeTreasures.com momma loves seeing the other babies in such neat things. Oh and if you go to our bed page you will be able to click on a link to win a bed. So please come and check it out.
I want to send many hugs and high paws to all my friends that have been here for me and are always looking for updates. I am doing great just so darn busy around here now that I am not stuck on a couch all the time. Oh and I can dance and play without a wheelchair that is super great also. I do not walk like a normal pup but I am walking and that is all that counts momma said..
Will come on back and try to up date sooner next time.. Sorry for sucha delay.

 

Do You Believe in Miracles??? WE DO!!!

A quick note from Wheelie Boy Babybear's mom.
Hi all you cute pawsome babies.. We have some good news we want to share with you about BB. This letter here is what we sent out to all our friends and family and wanted to share it with all of you..

Do you believe in Miracles?????
I sure do after what I just saw.
I am trying to contain myself and stop from crying.
I just came in from outside with Babybear. I must start by telling you all that he has been going outside to do his business for a week now. Seeing the weather has been warmer and the snow is going away I have been able to get him out 4 to 5 times a day. Well it has helped him a great deal. This is great considering he has been wearing a diaper for almost three years. And last year when he had to have that pin removed from his neck from his AAI(Atlanoaxial Instability) surgery the surgeon said it has been over 2 years so do not plan on him walking again. Well you all know me I can not give up at all not when it comes to my little guy. And it paid off today when I took him out to do his thing. I let go of his sling and he took off. Well of course it was early morning and I had to get ready for work so I didn't have my camera with me so when I got home from work I took him out and he did it again. Again I did not have my camera. So after supper I took him out again but this time I took my camera with me. Sorry everyone I am still crying and everytime I watch these videos I cry some more.
So get your tissues out everyone before you hit play. You watch the miracle yourselfs and see NEVER GIVE UP!!

Reposting how I became disabled do to AAI

Hi everypaw,
I am a 3 year old yorkie and I am disabled. I broke my neck last year on July 29,2006 by jumping off my mom's lap. I had a congenital defect in my neck that mom nor my vets knew about. I had, had problems with my neck and the doctors kepted telling mom it was a pinched nerve in my neck and would send her home with some meds that made me feel really good. This was until that bad day I jumped off mom's lap. Mom says I jumped and let out a heck of a scream. It was so weird it scared her. She looked down on the floor and I was having a seizure then all of a sudden I was stiff as a board and my tongue was all blue. So dad started giving me mouth to mouth. Mom and dad ran to the truck and rushed me to the hospital. When we got there mom took me from dad who was still breathing in my mouth and ran into the dogtors with me crying to save me. They said one more minute and I would have never of been able to survive. The dogtors did all kinds of tests to see what was wrong with me xrays, and bloodwork. Mom had to wait outside and the dogtor came and asked her if she wanted everything done to save me. She said of course. So they kept me alive. Mom had to leave because dad was full of pee and poo. I did this to him yuck. She took dad home and then came back. The dogtors said mom could come back and see me. They showed mom I could not stand but thought this might be do to me having that bad seizure. He showed mom the xrays and said there are no breaks in the neck and everything else looked fine they did not know what had happened, but they were still waiting for the blood results to come back. He told mom to go home and come back in a couple hours so they could monitor me for a while. So mom left me again. I had vet tech Denise wif me the whole time. She never left me side. Oh did I mention this was a Saturday and there were a lot of people at the office that day. But i was getting all the attention. Mom and dad came back at 1 when the office closed so the dogtor could talk to mom and dad without any interuptions. He said the blood worked showed that I had liver shunts, because my liver levels had changed since May. What ever that is. And that they were really bad but he did not know if I was going to make it the weekend so mom and dad should take me to an ER for the weekend so if anything happened they would know what to do. Well, it sounded like the end for me and mom and dad were crying. They said they would take me home wif them and care for me there. And if I happen to pass over the weekend they wanted it to be wif the family I love not some strangers. So mom took me home.
She sat with me all weekend long she didn't sleep one wink. The dogtor said before we left if I was the same way come Monday mom and dad had to decide what they were going to do wif me. I think he was talking to give me a shot and make me sleep forever. Mom and dad talked all weekend on what they were going to do. I still could not move mom was feeding me water and stuff out of a straw. I would eat a little but not much. Mom held me and held me all weekend long. Well, I made it through the weekend with no change.
Monday morning I heard mom on the phone with my doctors office she was crying when talking to them making an appointment to get that shot for me. Daddy was really upset and he kept going outside and looking at me and telling me he loved me. Mom was so heart broken she didn't know what to do wif her self. My brother's and sister came to the house and pet me and told me they were going to miss me and they loved me alot. Then I heard mom on the phone with the dogtors office again. She said he was canceling the appointment. She was going to find another dogtor to look at me. So she took me a long ways away. To a new hospital ER it was really nice and all the people were nice. Mom talked to the new dogtor and he told mom that he didnt' think I had liver shunts. I was a 22 month old pup and I was 15 pounds liver dogs are small and have a hard time putting on weight. He told mom he thought I had Atlantoaxial Instability (AAI for short) mom asked what that was. He said it is a congenital defect in the neck. It is a condition where the first two cervical vertebrae are not firmly attached. And he thinks that I had broken my neck and asked if he could take more pictures of my neck. Mom said okay. About 5 minutes later the dogtor came back and said he was right that I had a very bad broken neck. He said I was internally decapiated he didn't know how mom kept me alive all weekend. She told him with a lot of TLC. He told mom he could do surgery on my neck and make me better and he said that there was a 85 to 90 percent chance I would walk again. Of course there are not guarentees with that. Mom told the doctor she didn't know if she could afford the surgery and what were my chances without it. He said there were no guarentees because he was shocked I was still alive as it was. Mom said she had to go home and talk to dad. She then asked if it was alright to take me with her. He said yes but keep doing what you have been doing all weekend. Mom said of course she would. We went home and mom and dad talked. They found a way to come up with the money and called the vets ER the next day to tell them it was a go. So mom got me already the next morning to go to the hospital for my surgery. She was going to drive down and put me in the back seat. She hadn't slept since Saturday I was worried. So when she put me back there. I tried to turn my head to see where she was and everything went black. Mom said I stopped breathing again and she had to give me mouth to mouth again to bring me back. She rushed me to the ER. When we got there they said the dogtor was called away on a emergancy and he would not be back until tomorrow and bring me back then. Mom said listen I just had to breath for him again please keep him here. And that she hadn't slept in 3 days and she was scared next time she would not be fast enough with me. And at this time I had really bad poop problems. When the nurse picked me up I sprayed poop all her and the walls. YUCKY.
I had my surgery the next day. The dogtor called mom and said he put wires and bone cement in my neck to keep it stable. She could come tomorrow and see me. She did and was crying again. She got to come and get me on Friday. They taught mom to give me physical therapy and gave me a bunch of pills to take. I was so weak mom had to feed me with a syringe. She took really good care of me. I slept with her in her bed. Dad wasn't crying anymore just hoping I would get all better. I went for my 8 week check up and the dogtor said I was doing great and asked if I was walking yet. Mom said nope. He said it looked good because I was standing on my back legs so I had strong muscle back there but I was losing them in the front. And mom should start water therapy wif me. So we went home and mom filled the tub and I was put in the water. Mom called someone that owns a doggie swim spa and asked a bunch of questions. So this lady must have told mom what to do. I didn't want to move my legs but the water felt good. nice and warm. Mom continued to do this three times a week and still gave me physical therapy. She still does it.
Mom was talking to a lady on line about a wheelchair for me. And her furbaby went to the rainbow bridge a few weeks later and she had a wheelchair and sent it to me so I could walk. We got the wheelchair and it didn't fit. So we sent it to the place that made it, but in the meantime mom made me a wheelchair. Because I still needed help holding my neck mom had to make a brace for my neck it was still weak. We got the new cart and it didn't fit right but I tried it I took a few steps but didn't like it at all. So I had a dogtors appointment wif my vet for some shots. Mom brought my cart wif me. They tried everything and gave mom some ideas on what to do to try and make this work for me. Then him and mom started to talk about acupuncture. My doctors said funny you should mention that he was just starting to learn and become certified. He needed a study subject and chose me. So I have been having acupuncture since March. I still get it every other week, we had to change it because I am at a stand still with it right now. I am not doing anything different, but since I started I have been able to stand on my own. I even try getting up all by my self. I do it sometimes. Mom cries when I do it I do not understand, but she says it is because she is happy. I only cry when I am hurt or sad. What is wif these humons. Well, the cart I have is not working for me. And mom was hoping to try and make a front wheeled cart. Then she came acrossed Gizmo's dogster page. Mom contacted Gizmo the Great's mom and asked a few questions. Mom was reading Gizmo the Great;s page and saw he got his wheels from Eddie's wheels. Mom sat down and wrote them a letter and now I have to go in a week and get some measurements taken to get a new set of wheels. I am so excited. I might be able to be mom's shadow again. I can't wait. My back legs work good. My front legs do not. When mom tries to walk me I cross my front legs I do not know why I tell them to go the right way and they don't. Mom does special massages to my legs and special exercises to my front legs to get them to go right and they won't. So we are hoping that wif these new set of wheels things will go easier for me.
Sorry my story was so long. But it is hard to tell and understand unless you know everything. Now mom and I try to get the word out about this thing AAI so other pups and furparents do not have to go through what I have gone through. My dogtor tells me all the time I am a very lucky boy. Most furmom's and furdads' would have given up and made me go to sleep forever. But I am lucky to have my mom and dad because they want to let me live a long long time. My mom has told me everyday since i hurt myself that she got me to be with me for a very long time and that is how she plans on keeping it.
Thank you for reading my story.
Wheelie Boy,
Babybear

Hi there Everyfur,
I just wanted to let everyfur know I have been very busy learning how to walk and I am doing it better and better all the time. We have just added one new video and another one should be coming soon it is uploading as I write. Momma is so proud of me. I sure hope I can do this all by myself come Christmas. My next step is to learn how to get up off the floor. Darn I can't remember how I used to do that and it is so hard. So momma is working on retraining my brain to learn to stand up from a lay down position. I keep watching Bud and Bubba but I just can't catch on.. Soon I will momma will make me work on this every day a million times a day.. Gosh she doesn't understand how tiring this gets. But then again if she gave up a while ago I would not be walking without any wheelchair today.. So I guess she knows what she is doing right?
Well I better go make sure that other video uploaded. And go take a rest I just got back from water therapy and I am tired out.. But I had to come and let all my pals see what I can do.. Thank you everyfur.

I am doing it

Hi all my pals,
I thought it was time I get my typist on here and do some updating. I know you have seen my how I became handicapped entry up for the past week or so, that is to keep everyone that doesn't know my story informed. Hope you all don't mind seeing it when it gets buried.
I have some wonderful news. I have been using my sling a lot and not my wheelchair do to the fact in my wheelchair I am not putting any pressure on my paws or legs. I am just paddling. So I have been using the sling to walk around in. And I hate my diaper as I always have, but I refuse to go pee in my diaper now. Momma now takes me out side so I can pee on all the leaves on the ground. Boy does that feel good to feel like a real dog not a baby. So I am going for walks every day outside to go to the bathroom and to smell the fresh air and see all the things I have missed way down here on ground level. I love to smell all the yuckie stuff on the ground. Momma gets grossed out but that is okay it is new to me again.
Last night while at water therapy I took my first steps since my surgery in June all alone. Momma of course didn't have the camera ready so she pulled it out right afterwards and set it up. She did get two videos of me that you can see on my page. I hope you all enjoy these two new videos as much as momma does. Just remember you all had a part in this. If it wasn't for my pals I would not be where I am today. I tell everyone I meet I thank all my pals from the bottom of my heart and soul for all your help.
I will try to update next week after therapy with new news. Momma says every day I am doing something different that I just amaze her all the time. So hopefully soon I can drop the Wheelie boy off my name and just be Babybear again. But then again Wheelie Boy Babybear is kind of my trademark name for me.
Want you to know we love you all. The prayers are always working for this little yorkie thank you all so much.

*Zoe* Is Giving me a Big Birthday Bash On Sept 12

Hi everypaw,
I wanted to let everypaw know that my sweetheart *Zoe* is throwing a big Wheelie Boy Babybear Birthday Bash(boy is that a pups mouthful) for me in a new group she created just for my party. You can go to this link Babybear's Birthday Bash. The party is on Sept.12,2008 at 5:00 PM Dogster time. I sure hope to see all my special friends there new,and old.

Also in this entry I would like to let all my special friends know that I am getting stronger by the day.. It is going to be a long come back this time, but I can do it. I am working hard daily with therapy 5 to 7 times a day. Mom does this for me (ssh don't tell her I don't like it). I have to go to water therapy once a week and to acupuncture once a week. Those to types of therapy make me tired, but they are also making me stronger along with mom. So I guess that is okay. My water therapist Melody keeps saying she will not give up on me she knows I will walk again. That just gives momma chills.. Melody says I might not walk normal like all the other pups but I will walk.. SO please keep your paws crossed. Oh talking about keeping paws crossed. My right paw is now not crossing anymore, but my left one is. So we are working on the left side to stop it from crossing over. So for now it is work, work, work. That is how I will get to be on my paws again. And it wouldn't be possible without all my pals. SO thank you so much.
Have to run time for more therapy. Hope to see you all at the big birthday bash.

Hi everypaw,
Wanted to let everypaw know I am getting stronger every day. With all the therapy I get tired fast too. But that is to be expected. It has been hard to get my water therapy in here at home because of all the rain we have been having, but as soon as it lets up I will be in my pool swimming.
I have posted a picture of me sitting drinking my coffee milk( okay by Doc Paul to have because it is flavored). This is the first time in over 2 years I have sat on my own. Mom is so proud of me. You will also see new pics and video of my water therapy. Thanks to all my friends I was able to have my surgery,MRI and have some money left to do my acupuncture and water therapy. Thank you all my special friends because this is really helping me. Thank you to all that were able to send me your prayers.. Please do not stop praying because this learning everything all over again is a long journey. I need those prayers as much now as I did when I had my surgery..
I will continue to keep you all posted here on my updates. To everyone that is just reading my page for the first time please click on See all dairy entries and you can read how I became disabled..Sorry it is not on the front page here but with updates from my last surgery it how I became disabled ends up in the dairy entries..
Thank you all for your growing support and your love you have sent me.. I will be trying to update regularly where the I love Babybear group is going to be closing soon. Please make sure you hug and kiss you pawrents and let them know you all love them..
yorkie Kisses and love
Wheelie Boy Babybear

Hi all my pals,
Wow I had to rub my eyes I thought I was seeing double.. I almost fell over.. When I saw all of my special pals wearing shirts that said they love me.. Me little me.. I never knew how many special friends I had until I got sick..You all mean so very much to me..
Now that I am home and resting I thought it would be good to update everyone on how things are going.. As you know two weeks ago tomorrow on Father's day my neck started to bother me again.. Mom took me to see my Doc Paul on that Tuesday 6/15. He kept me for the day and took some xrays of my neck to see what was going on.. I was having a lot of pain near my C1 vertebra..This was not a good thing because that is the area that was broken almost two years ago. Doc Paul sent my xrays to the Doc that did my surgery.. He said I needed to have one of the pins in my neck removed because it had moved.. On Weds June 25,2008 I went in to have my pin removed thanks to the help of many many of my pals... When the doctor did the surgery to take my pin out he discovered it had moved. He tried to look for it but could not find it. He did however remove a pin that was very pointy and poking me. Then they took more xrays to see where that pin was that they could not fine.. They could not tell through the xrays so momma was told I needed a MRI to see where it was.. But it would have to wait until Thrusday the 26th to take place.. On the 26th I had a MRI done to see where that pin was above the skull or below and in my brain.. The doctor could not tell for sure he thought that it was in the brain.. So the MRI had to be sent to a doctor that could read it..On Friday the 27 we found out that the pin is in my brain.. Very sad day for everyone, but we need to think positive. So everyone is praying that my pin does not move.. This is scary for me and my family but we will take every day as it comes as a blessing.. Like everyone says there are people that live with bullets, shrapnel, and other things in thier brains. So I might be little but I can handle a pin(I am hoping..)
Right now I am doing fine.. Mom has to watch out for some signs that the pin moved.. So if we see any changes we will surely let you all know. Mom has decided she will not do any more surgery to the pin that is missing because the doctor told her I most likely would not make it through the surgery.. And at this point she would rather have me with a few problems then not have me at all..
I want to thank all of you for all your prayers, Lighting of candles for me,sending me special gifts on my page and in the mail also showing your support by wearing shirt saying I
