Pippin the Wonder Dog...



Many are wondering how the pooch is doing. I know the last post left many questions. While I am in no position to answer all the questions with out all the answers I will tell you he is starting to pick up...

He was hit pretty hard, his head took a major blow but seems to be doing much better. The major issues are still there though. Right now, his lungs are healing and the contusions should hopefully be better in another day or two. At that time he will be put under. They need to take all of his lower teeth out. Not all, but all the ones that lay between his lower K9's. They need to Xray his hind quarters because he can still not bear any weight on his rear right leg and from there we will see. Honestly, now that his lungs are slowly doing better the leg is the main concern. Fractured hip? Something else? We don't know. And I must say that I am concerned in soooo many ways. Obviously he is part of the family. He's a child with 4 legs. Many of you can understand that I'm sure. And while it will all get figured out I would be telling a lie if I said the financial aspect isn't hurting as well.

You look at this economy and the "bailout" and all I think is damn, would someone come bail me out of this one....

Sigh... All I can do is be thankful that he is still here. I can be thankful that so many people out there are pulling for him... And be thankful that he is a strong strong soul keeping his furry bruised chin held high.....

Thank you all for your thoughts!

Glad to hear he's pulling through, despite the extensive injuries! Thanks for the update.
