violet had her surgery and yesterday she had her 3-week follow-up where we found out that while she’s healing well she will definitely not have a fully functional leg, although it could prove helpful for balance and some other leg-centric activities. the biggest issue is that violet seems to have written the leg off completely – won’t use it, won’t look at it, won’t have nothing to do with it, to the point that she many times lets it drag behind her and the sores and ground-down nails that...

we got a call the other day from an acquaintance who had “rescued” a dog from a bad situation and needed some help figuring out what to do. unfortunately “the dog” had a broken leg and now the rescuers had had her in their care for a week without providing any care for the leg. not knowing what else to do and realizing that this dog needed help we told them to take her to our vet the next day and we would pay to find out what exactly was wrong with the leg...

speck does not get a moment's rest from benny, which i believe we can accurately refer to as karma!

while 93.75% of our family adored benny from the get go there was one that was not only not impressed but downright scared of him. as fearless as speck seems she is actually terrified of new people and new dogs, the only exception being carly who she adored right from the start (go figure). speck spent benny’s first few days running away from him and hiding under things. because murphy’s law is what it is benny was drawn to speck right from the start and followed...
