What the hell just happened?

Originally posted 2020-09-25 16:33:14. Yeah that’s what we said after last week. For certain reasons I have to leave some info out. Ok, so you know we had 2 extra pups we recently found as strays. Well, last Monday I received a message with a screenshot of a post on a local community facebook page. It was by a young lady stating that their dogs had gotten loose about 2 and half weeks prior to…

Unexpected

Originally posted 2020-09-12 17:36:51. Late last night Leia went out to use the bathroom. On her way back in something happened. As she walked in the house further she spilled more blood. She bled the rest of the night while my husband and I took turns watching her. I called an emergency veterinary clinic but the person I spoke with didn’t exactly give me that comforting feeling everything would be ok. So first thing this…

What to do about Saorise

Originally posted 2019-06-27 17:50:44. Well… it’s not a good report. I met the veterinarian at his office and they handed me a computer disc. Which I knew what that meant. His first words were, it’s not good. We kind of already prepared ourselves for that. He is referring her to the same orthopedic surgeon that did Chewy’s hind legs. This appointment is kind of a second opinion as he would like to see if there…

Spayed and confused

Originally posted 2020-09-05 01:57:07. I got a call around 9:30 am Friday morning. The veterinarian’s office wanted to see if Leia (the female stray) had eaten anything yet. She hadn’t eaten yet. We were on the cancelation waitlist for her to be spayed. They asked if I wanted to bring her in as they had a cancelation. She is now home and been spayed. Thankfully she wasn’t pregnant but the veterinarian believes she had a…

Originally posted 2020-09-04 09:00:37. Like father like son 🤣A man and his dogs It is now official, the two strays have been added to our already furry family. They had their veterinarian appointment yesterday and got their shots, rabies, etc. Bowie (aka heavy chevy ) still has some growing to do 😳 it’s crazy that he is 10 pounds lighter than Chewy it’s hard to believe. Bowie has a skin infection on top of allergies…

Saoirse’s Update

Originally posted 2019-06-06 12:00:51. As of June 6 2019 They estimate her birth was 12-18-2018. Remember I said Saoirse had been hit by a car at some point in her young life? Well…. her injuries are a bit more extensive. Her left hind knee/joint was completely shattered. Her left hind leg is shorter than the right. She can’t straighten that leg assuming at this point because of her knee/joint. Forgive the terrible image. We scheduled…

I have been MIA

Originally posted 2020-07-07 15:38:23. I have been MIA for a reason. I apologize for not posting but with everything going on around us it is hard to just login to the computer some days. I have been getting daily headaches, not sure why. Today the headache seems to be centered in my forehead region along with nausea. Maybe it’s just the change in the barometric pressure, maybe not. It rained earlier today and now it…

Repetitious

Originally posted 2021-09-18 09:00:22. The past month has been a bunch of repeats. Over and over I go. It’s been my husband, myself, my son, my best friend and the dogs. Each of us has had at least one appointment. To tell you the truth it has been more than just one. From my laser hair removal to massage therapy. To pain management to ear, nose, and throat specialist. Then our normal primary doctor’s appointments.…

Inoperable mass

Originally posted 2019-02-19 18:02:03. As we were headed back to the NC State Veterinary School to pick up Charlie we get a phone call. “Inoperable mass on her brain stem” She is staying there tonight as she was still recovering from the anesthesia. After my medical procedure, Dusty’s psychiatrist appointment and Chewy’s follow-up appointment tomorrow we will head back up there to discuss any available options. He doesn’t want her to suffer but he just…
