My Baby Bo

Tuesday, June 30, 2009


For those who do not know, my little mini-dobie was attacked by another huge dog and has been paralized for almost a week. BUT
Bo is improving!! He has began to raise up on his "elbows" He can't stay for very long, but that is real promising. Also he trys to push himself up with his nose, but it doesn't do any good, poor baby. He has began to push with his back feet and has tried to scratch his head. When Tom tries to stand him up, nothing happens, yet.
The vet took another set of x-rays and she said that he could possibly come out of this. I have to keep hospital pads under him for now, and I take him everywhere I go, even to church.. If we get out of his sight (while he is awake, he cries something terrible.
He is beginning to sleep throughout the night. Last night he only woke up 3 times. I turned him over every time and he went back to sleep immediately. I am exhausted!! Especially w/ this chronic fatigue going on.. I hope to be back in swing real soon.. I do miss you all sooooo very much.

    So glad to see he is doing better! How observant of you to turn him over when he cries. I know what this can take out of you but when he is doing well and you have bonded even more, it will have been worth it! emoticon

    Oh, Cissy, my heart goes out to you and to Bo. That poor baby; it must be awful for you to watch him go through this. We won't underestimate God though, 'cause he can bring him out of this! What I'm wondering is, what happened to the dog that did that to your poor little Bo?

    I love animals, but I don't have much sympathy for the ones that do things like this. My friend and her daughter were attacked last week on a neighborhood walk. Both were bitten and this dog had been reported numerous times, but nothing was done about it, except they had to pay the doctor's bill.

    Praying for you and Bo.

    Thank you for posting an update...he's been prayed for and so have you! We'll continue to pray for steady and complete recovery. And I'll pray that when he's well, you can have a break and rest. I'm so sorry you have to go through this. It sounds like he's a strong pup. Hang in there!
