i just woke up from another nap...man! those cold and sinus pills knock me right out. anyway...this was a good thing cuz i just checked the emails and apparently our new guy is arriving early this evening (i thought he was coming tomorrow night) so i will need to be rested to settle him in.
saints is admitting another puppy. his current name is shima (of which i am not a fan) and he is a 7 month old unneutered pitt/lab cross puppy with a crushed vertebrae in his lower spine. he has been hanging out in a vet clinic a few hours from here, since he was hit by a car earlier this month. his family declined to provide medical care and the clinic was only able to keep him short term until rescue could step in.
he may require surgery..or he may heal with strict rest for several weeks. we will have to see. i will talk to his vet tonight when she brings him and then talk to our vets tomorrow and come up with a plan of care. there is no way to know if he will have any permanent deficits, like impaired mobility or incontinence yet.
i am thinking of naming him sherlock cuz he was stupid enough to get hit by a car. he is apparently a very sweet puppy...his face is the mirror of al. and i will probably shoot myself because we will now have 2 puppies here...and even palliative and parapalegic puppies are way too perky for me.
welcome sherlock....smart puppies do not play in the street.
