Arrival Story: ***Update***
For the past couple weeks Mesha has been very sick stemming from an intestinal tumor and abscess that was removed with a resection and anastomosis of her small intestine. She's had to have 3 different surgeries in the past 10 days, the original resection, and two more times this week due to dehisence and a septic peritonitis. We are keeping our fingers crossed because yesterday's surgery was her last. We will not attempt to go in again if she perforates again. We've experienced the entire range of emotions the last 24 hours...from "we have a very slim chance of survival" to "she's going to make it". Keeping our fingers crossed.
I don't know where I was born but it wasn't a good place. They shipped me off to a pet store in San Diego right away but no one wanted to buy me because I didn't look like other German Shepherds because of my long hair. I ended up staying there for a long time and my area was getting smaller as I kept growing. I overheard one day that the owner was going to send me back to the breeder and I didn't want that at all because I remember it was a bad place. But my luck changed one day, and someone came in and paid some money for me and took me home. Turns out it used to be one of the ladies that took care of me and knew that I was about to be sent away. I remember her saying something about how she didn't believe in buying dogs from pet stores, but I sure am thankful. I lived with Mom and Dad and they brought home a brother for me and a little sister. Eventually though Mom and Dad had to go their seperate ways because they are both studying to be dog doctors but I live with my Dad and little sister now and am VERY happy.
Bio: I am glad my dad knows about medicine because I've had some knee problems. I broke my cranial cruciate ligaments in both knees a few years ago (that's the same thing as an ACL in humans), but my dad made sure that they got fixed so I can keep playing frisbee and going on walks.
Forums Motto: I'll do anything if you'll play Frisbee
