Feb. 3rd(TODAY) is Gwennie’s Birthday!
Please consider a donation to help with one of the most precious of things to Gwennie! – DOG FOOD! FOOD = LIFE!
I asked her what she wanted for her Birthday and, as always, she said, nothing for herself.
Instead what Gwennie asked for people to consider is to make a $5.00 donation to a cause near and dear to their own hearts. Be it a r/q animal rescue, human or environmental etc. To make a group/organization have a much better plus brighter day thanks to said donation and also, for those that benefit from the work that the group/organization does!
BHRR’s Maverick went in for his next round of post-op x-rays on that right leg on Friday January 31st(it had to be rescheduled). He is still battling ‘skinny’ issues yet, hoping that with good x-rays results and, then, being able to have more freedom, he will be even happier and eat better and pack that weight back on and then some. His coat is so shiny, glossy and black now(not auburn!).
He was such a brave boy again heading into KAH and, this boy deserves a medal for his heart and courage!
As he was being x-rayed under sedation, I held my breath as, I was so worried that his leg would not have healed and, it would be like it was back on November 13th. I did not want more surgery for him….
Well, DRUMROLL! All of the patience, consistency, time and dedication on his part and ours, has paid off! I am waiting for the final word from Dr. Philibert, the ortho specialist, yet, the Vet that did review them at KAH and myself – we think it looks good and he can begin to have more freedom and play time with other dogs etc. 🙂 YAY! So, I should hear back this week the ‘final word’!
Below are two of his x-rays taken on Friday! LOOKING Good BHRR’s True IRON MAN!
In going through his blogs, I have some of his x-rays and other photo’s – posted on our now unpublished FB page – that have yet, to be added here and, I cannot wait to do his before and after slide ‘reality’ capture. AMAZING dog! Thank you Dr. Philibert for your expertise in giving this boy a wonderful quality filled future AND, thank you to ALL of those that have stood by him!!! STRONG and proud and filled with love for this BBBBB!
