Bio: I was pulled from the Spaulding County Animal Shelter Friday by a rescue worker in GA. She kept me until Saturday.Today Sammy and Jeb's mom came to get me and took me to Charleston, SC. I am pretty sure that Cherry's mom will come to get me and give me a forever home. She is definitely coming to get me and we will see from there. Sammy's mom says there is NO WAY she won't fall in love, so keep your fingers crossed for me! 3/19 -Loving NJ and just need to convince Daddy he wants another pup, Mom says piece of cake! Daddy said I am a good Dog!
3/17/09 - 2 years in my forever home!!!
Mom noticed I was snoring louder than usual on Saturday and told me to change sleeping positions. So I moved, but continued to make loud breathing noises. Nothing else really changed in my daily routine, so they didn't think anything was really wrong. Tonight I only wanted to walk to do my business and wanted to go back home. They noticed my one tooth looked weird and thought I might have a toothache, so they called the Vet. While at the Vet and after some lung x-rays they found out I had many tumors in my lungs and the Vet wanted to keep me, but told Mom & Dad there would not be much they could do for me. They decided to give me some pain drugs and let me go home at least for the night. While at home with plenty of belly rubs from Mom & Dad, I decided to go out back on the deck, (one of my favorite places to rest) while Daddy was petting me, I know they would have a hard time taking me back to the Vet to let me go and wanted to pass away where I was loved the most. So I make the choice to run free. I know all that knew me and loved me would miss me, but I also know I was loved so very much and didn't want to make them decide. So I took my last breath among my parents and let my last sight be of my beloved backyard. I am now at the Rainbow Bridge and will keep all of my Dogster Bridge Pals company until we are reunited with our families. Without Dogster, I would have never made it to NJ to live with Mom & Dad and for that I thank you for my last 7 years!!
Remember to hug your pups every day and thank Dog for Dogster and everyone who loves Dogs!!!
Great news, the swelling is gone, and all my joints are working right, I get to wean off the drugs!! I am still not allowed any jumping or running like a maniac for a few more weeks, and no bunny chasing either!!
The Surgeon wants someone to look at it again in 4 to 6 weeks, which is when my annual appt. is anyway. And I need to ration my jerky treats until I lose my love handles........
All in all it was a great day, and now I can take longer walks to burn off some energy!!! I just hope my squeakie toys won't miss me too much!!
Well, I should be used to restricted activities by now!! Geez, seems like I can't win!!!
I injured my CCL in my right hind paw. I have a bunch of fluid around the joint. They gave me drugs (Rimadyl & Tramadol) and told Mom just short walks, no jumping, running, etc........ I have an appt with a Surgeon next Friday, if they say I need to be operated on, we will hopefully be able to wait until the weather gets a bit better. Can't imagine using 3 legs to get through all of this snow!!
