Arrival Story:
After losing Trisha, we adopted a puppy (Foxi) to cheer up the remaining dog (Jade). The next day, a friend if ours called us up and told us that an emaciated little puppy had been wandering around his neighbourhood for a few days, possibly a week or more. We went out to his home and we picked her up, sick, skinny, and full of fleas. After five minutes with her we knew we were keeping her.

Bio:
Apple currently lives with a very dear friend and is doing FANTASTIC! Her once black face has grayed with age but she is still a marvelous beast.

What's up with this?

I keep telling Mommy to update our jounals but NOOOOOOOOO.

Well pfft I'll do it. Hey guess what? We aren't living in our house anymore. Mommy and Daddy were looking for a house and they found this one but it was a bad house so we moved into this other house and we're living with other people, Mommy calls them roommates. One of them has this doggy and her name is Pepper and she's FAT I mean FAT like a sausage snack, and she's smaller than Foxi but bigger than Beetle and SHE LIKES BEETLE like she wants to love hiim and take care of him but he's MY puppy and I growl at Pepper a lot to make her leave my puppy alone but she fights back. I don't like her much.

Mommy wants to make a Dogster page for her. I'll try to keep her from doing that. She doesn't need a page, the puppy-stealer.

I love this house, it's got a huge fenced-in yard and we get to run and play all the time now, and my leg feels soooo good to run on, I just wish that the other one was fixed too, but Mommy and Daddy say I have to wait...

Oh well.

 

Surgery

I dropped off Apple at 8am today for her x-rays. The vet called us by noon to inform us that one hip was too far gone to perform a TPO on, but the other hip is borderline enough that it can be fixed with a TPO. Last check-in around 5pm she was in surgery for that hip, having the TPO performed.

Since it's only one hip, she gets to come home this weekend. The other hip we will get taken care of most likely by total hip replacement when she is fully grown (in about a year or so). At least having one good hip will help her make it to the point wherre the other can be taken care of as well.

Thank you all so much for your support.

 

I'm scared

Well guys it's been a long hard process...
After fundraising stuffs and barely reaching 1/4 what we needed, Mommy and Daddy went crawling to the bank to try to get a loan. They were already denied lots of stuff for having no credit history...
My hips took a turn for the worst last week and walking has been not fun. Daddy carries me sometimes.
The good news is that my Grandpa co-signed on a loan for Daddy and they got $4k approved...I go in tomorrow morning (11/17) at 8am to have more x-rays, to see if I'm still a candidate for the TPO. If I am, I'll be on the operating table hopefully tomorrow afternoon or some time Friday.
I'm scared, so's Mommy and Daddy, a bit.
But if it all goes well then I'll have Mommy tell everyone here and I'll be home in two weeks after I finish my bedrest and therapy.
And in a couple months after that, I'll be good as new! I can't wait.

I just hope I can still have the surgery. If not, the doctor lady will tell Mommy and Daddy about our other options. I'll probably have to wait until I'm all grown up and stuff to have any other surgeries done.

Oh oh and Beetle got bit on the head. I'm not gonna say who did it since Mommy doesn't know, and I'd be a tattletale. But he's okay.
