MONEY MARATHON MOVEMENT’ for Maggie May Fundraiser

Meet BHRR's Maggie MayFemale, Great Pyr about 2.5+ years of age. She was pulled from a terrible shelter in Macon County, TN. She was a stray that had a brutal injury to her right front leg/elbow and was in terrible pain just waiting to die in this shelter – she was only given 3 days to live.

Someone noted how sweet she was and two different Vets tried unsuccessfully to save her leg and after she was transferred to KY, USA; her right front leg was amputated on May 10th, 2011. She remained in a foster home in KY until such time as we had room at BHRR and then when she was strong enough to travel a transport was arranged to bring her here. I picked her up today and she is now resting.

She has also had to be treated for Ehrlichiosis and was on Doxycycline for a few weeks.

She has quite a bit of rehab still ahead of her yet has made a miraculous journey to date and we are hosting this MONEY MARATHON MOVEMENT for Maggie May Fundraiser as her Vet bills are $400+ in TN, USA and another $3,000+ in KY, USA.

Day of Arrival to BHRR – After she was strong enough to travel & we could move her from her foster home in KY, USA.

Update: June 13th, 2011: She finally began to drink a bit around 2 AM today and ate a bit around 12:45 PM today. BHRR's Maggie May weighted 36.9 KGs(81.18 pounds). We gave Maggie May some Drontal Plus as it was noted that she had tapeworm traces. She was still very weak and rested a lot at the Hospital. She was loving, sweet, wagged her tail and was an angel in the back large run. She allowed the Vet and I to shave her in various spots to look at her skin and it was noted that she has some bacterial lesions around her amputation site, some seroma pockets(nothing deemed necessary for antibiotics or draining) and we are going to be watching her hind end as she becomes more healthy to better determine if how she is moving is due to her not being strong as of yet, learning to be a tripod, the floor, needing a nail trim etc. I have an appointment booked for Friday to have her completely shaved down as the Vet agreed with me that it is the best thing for her to begin to start over in getting her coat white and back to being well groomed. She had a very busy day and was exhausted. She was very happy to come home, travelled awesome in the car and ate a bit once we arrived home.

Update: June 17th, 2011: BHRR's Maggie May was groomed today and by that, I mean she was shaved right down. Her ear hair was trimmed and nails were also done. You could tell that she felt soooooooooo much better afterwards yet it truly wore her out. She came home had a pee, pooped and ate a bit. Was not interested in drinking and has spent the rest of the day resting. We started our grooming session outside as we felt it would be in BHRR's Maggie May's best interest to not do the stairs down to Kathyrn's(Talking Tails) grooming room. Once it began to rain, we moved inside. he is compassionate, dedicated, personable, knowledgeable, kind and patient! We were there for 2.5 hours grooming Maggie May & Kathryn was still trying to find things to 'beautify' BHRR's Maggie May! There was not a thing we could not do with Maggie May – ears, nails and coat all done and not even a peep, struggle or sign of distress……she was quite content and boy, was she ever in bad shape. She felt so much better afterwards and had a some burst of energy before heading home.

BHRR's Maggie May – June 17th, 2011 – taking a rest before we groom some more & she just soaked up all the love given to her!
