Arrival Story:
Haley was a birthday present to Cindy, her human best bud! She was a surprise and a crazy one at that! Mom chose her from PJ's because she was a little naughty with the other dogs. When she was separated from the other puppies, she was a little angry! When she was brought home, she was wearing a red scarf with little white hearts. She could not keep still and kept running around the house in circles, and so the name Haley (like the comet) came about!

In the four years that Haley has been with us, she has had 3 surgeries. She, of course, had "THE OPERATION". This surgery wasn't so bad, she was up and at it a day or so later. However, this was followed by knee surgery. She hurt her knee and was limping all the time. They call it ACL and surgery was required to fix the problem. This was followed by weeks of recovery. No running, no jumping...this was particularly hard for her. Since her surgery, she has been advised by her doctor to no longer go to the leash free park. This is a precaution, in case she should get carried away and hurt her knee again. So far so good! She was 2 years old when this happened. Then about a year later, she started having urinary tract infections. After several reoccurences, a switch to a new dog food, and repeated antibiotics, we decided surgery was the last option. It was a hard decision, but we are happy that we decided to do it. It has been over a year since her last urinary tract infection!! This was the hardest recovery ever! She was in a lot of pain, and even licked off her stitches. She had trouble sleeping and required all night supervision. AFter all of these sleepover visits to the vet and the pain, she still loves it there! She greets everyone with a kiss and gets so excited when we arrive there.

Forums Motto:
Haley, crazy like the comet!
