Before Pictures & My
My family of 6 years dumped
me at the Franklin County Animal Shelter when I became ill and they said
they could not afford to take me to their vet to get x-rays to find out
what was wrong. Luckily the shelter called Harlequin Haven and they
opened their hearts and home to me I was immediately picked up from the
shelter and brought to the rescue.
I have been at the rescue
for a week now and am starting to feel a bit better but the vet says it
will take months of antibiotics to be 100% well again. Needless to say I
had not just became ill when I was dumped at the shelter. Grandma took
me to the vet, I had x-rays, and was diagnosed with Intervertebral
Intradiscal Osteomylitis also known as Discosponylitis in layman terms
infection between the disc in my neck. I will require long term
antibiotics but in 2 months I will be healthy again.
Update December 1: Check out my new pictures below!!! It is
amazing what changes have happened in just 3 weeks!!! I feel like
a new dog, I am pain free and happy!!
Update December 6: Grandma said I could give you all a quick
update, I got a new baby to play with and it is not even Christmas
yet!!! It is a stuffed squeak toy and I love it!!! Grandma said I act
like a puppy, but she is wrong because puppies chew things up and I just
LOVE playing with toys and not destroying them!! Okay time for me to go
Update December 13: Grandma said
I could give you a quick update! I continue to do wonderful and I keep
talking Grandma into more babies!!! I have a new friend her name
is Rylee she was really sick when she first came
in so she was not so much fun but now that she has had her leg removed
we have become really good friends!! One day soon if the weather
cooperates we will play outside, we can't wait!! Well I hear my babies
calling. Just so you know my babies are not real they are stuffed squeak
toys, just didn't want you to get the wrong idea!!
Update December 15:
Yesterday Rylee and I went outside to play
but was not able to play because of the recent rains, it was too muddy!!
We started to go outside today to play but we both agreed to stay inside
and play with our toys because today it was too cold!! Yes we are a bit
spoiled already!! We did ask grandma to take a picture of us yesterday
although we were just wandering around trying not to get our paws muddy!
Update December 24:
Well tomorrow is Christmas and although I
already feel I have been given a lot since I came to the rescue I am
hoping for a few more new toys!! Grandma says I have been really really
good so I have my paws crossed!! I love toys!! Grandma also told
me that I will be ready for adoption at the first of the year! I hope I
am a lucky dog and get a great forever home!!
Update December 31:
I am doing wonderful and am totally
well!! Grandma says I can now start looking for a forever home! I love
to play and act half my age, grandma says my only fault is I like to
talk to much and some people don't understand she says I am a "Chatty
Cathy", whatever that means!! I guess you have to be old to understand
Updated March 13:
I no longer am available for adoption and became a sanctuary
Dane. I am in heart failure and have not responded to the medication.
Updated January 28:
I was taken off the adoption list almost 1 year ago and of course then I
started responding to the medication. Well Grandma and I had a long talk
and we decided I would stay a sanctuary dog because who would want to
adopt an old Dane with a heart probem. Well today I was adopted!! Ya
just never know do you?
The pictures below is all the higher I can
hold my head up at that time!
