Arrival Story:
Biscuit arrived on our back porch late one night in October. There was a rumble on our porch and Paige (neighbor's dog) chased the intruder away. The next morning we saw a BEAUTIFUL, but thin puppy on our neighbor's lawn. He looked happy, but scared. We called him over and he came running across the lawn with a big smile. He approached us with his ears cupped and curled at our feet. He was very thin, his lip was bleeding, there were scabs on his head and he was very dirty. We didn't have any dog food, so we heated up some left-over stew. He gobbled it up like he hadn't seen food in a month. From that day on he lived in our neighborhood. We put up fliers and tried to find his owner. When no one claimed him, we brought him to the vet. He got all his shots, his wounds were treated and they gave him a bath. Unfortunately, while he was living outside he contracted two types of worms. After the proper treatment he was healthy. Since that day forward he has been our best friend and our baby. He is very well taken care of and very spoiled. We couldn't ask for a better friend. ***TO CONTACT BISCUIT***

On July 15, 2003 (Kelly's Birthday), Biscuit had a NASTY run-in with a venomous creature. That morning, Biscuit was REALLY excited to see his momma. He showered her with kisses and Biscuit love. Shortly after breakfast we took showers and got ready to pickup the birthday cake. While Biscuit's daddy was in the shower, Biscuit went into the bedroom, vomited and collapsed. Kelly stumbled upon this horrifying scene. Only moments before, Biscuit was happy and healthy. Biscuit was conscious, but appeared to be paralyzed. His daddy, heard the panic in the hallway and quickly finished getting ready. Biscuit was clearly in a state of emergency. We rushed him to his vet where they immediately evaluated his condition. The doctors said that he was dehydrated and in need of fluids. They ran a toxicology test to see what was harming his system. The report tested positive for a poison. At first, we weren't sure what had happened, but we quickly decided that it was a venomous bite, most likely a spider. The doctor kept Biscuit for the day and kept him stabilized. During his stay, Biscuit's head had swollen to more than double the normal size. The doctors treated the swelling and his general condition. It was a scary time, filled with questions and worry. The doctors called us regularly to give us updates on his condition. He stayed at the animal hospital overnight and returned the following morning. If it were up to Kelly, she would have slept by his cage through the night. About a week after Biscuit returned home, we noticed a spot on the side of his head. It was similar to a hot-spot. His doctor said that this was the sight of his bite. After treatment, he was happy, healthy and back to being Biscuit. Thanks to the EXCELLENT care, kindness and compassion of Dr. Hartt, Dr. Presley and the rest of the staff at the Clay/Chalkville Animal Clinic, Biscuit is happy and healthy. They saved his life and for that we are extremely thankful!!
