From the 'Just when you think you're getting ahead department':



OK quick update - Anne's been having 'issues' with her back legs - she runs like the wind after a rabbit, then the next moment she can't get her back legs to work at all, like she is temp. paralyzed.

So, off to the vet yesterday, x-rays are REAL bad, Congenital disorder, both her knee caps are 90 degrees, to the outside of where they should be, and both her hips joints are malformed, with the beginning of some arthritis in her left hip.

Where to start....Knees first, this morning, a short prayer for the surgeon if you would, that he does what he does well, and Anne's pull though OK.

Vet says knees are easy, fast to heal, and after she's fully recovered from that we'll re-visit her hips.

Seems the left hip is FAR worse than the right, so that will be next, I'm told that that will involved actually cutting off the 'ball' part of her femur and letting the connective tissue 'act' as the new joint, she'll have a gimp on that side, but otherwise it will be pain free 'after the fact'.

Her right hip, may or may not be an issue, the vet said '...see this, this is pretty bad, but look at her left hip this is horrible....' so based on that comparison we'll hold off for know on her right hip.

This was tough decision for me, and I'm not sure Miss Robin is on board 100%, very tough, but in the end I simply could not do what I know most would have done in my shoes, and I too, likely should have done, but

Her surgery is today - so let the rehab begin......


For those that don't know her, here she is:

It's easy to say what you should do until it becomes an issue with your own dog.
Hope the pup recovers fast.

Yep - the 'toy' version she's tiny, but full of life, we have six other dogs, she tries to 'herd' them all the time - it's a riot - she tries to 'herd' my Miss Robin too when she's flinging the mop around LOL

I think she thinks the mop is a cows tail -

She's in all that pain and yet you can still see the love in her eyes. I wish you and her both well.

Hope all goes well. My wife and I have four rescues now that we are empty nesters. We joke about how much we spoil them more than we did our own kids.

I understand completely, our furry kids here at the house would get the same thing. Prayers for a succesful surgery now and later.

I have a good friend who has well over 7K invested in his pound puppy he rescued years ago.

Anne update - Vet called about 1830 last night - she came through like a little trooper, knee caps are now where they should be. Vet's going to keep her another 3 days, 'observation', then the word is she'll 'rehab' on my Sister's house, just down the hill from us, so she's not tempted to 'tear it up' with the other 6 dogs at our house.

Thank you all, for all the well wishes and prayers, both online and off, we REALLY appreciate them, and so does Anne \:\)
