03-12-2004, 05:26 PM

she's doing great and came home today after 2 weeks at the vet.
she had to have everything from her shoulder blade down removed. it's amazing that she actually walks better than before.
this one has made me cry more that once!!

another of tracy.

she will survive now and lead a pretty natural life.

03-12-2004, 05:44 PM
She will be flying around with the rest of em in no time! Hey, you could call her tripod! I know, (groan) I'm heartless. But I'm so glad for you.


03-12-2004, 05:48 PM
considered that but it's just to common.
want to hear a good one?

i guess she will never be 100%.

i know! that's cruel but sometimes it's the only way to get thru it.

03-12-2004, 05:58 PM
OK Let's hear a good one!


03-12-2004, 06:03 PM
for seventy-fiver (%)??

You "COULD" call her "Rithmetic"!

She puts down 3 & carries one. Well that's a lie as she puts down 3 & carries none!! :D
Glad to see her up & around, & looking forward to some happiness to her life!! Great for you! George.

I think she looks wonderful....you have done a great job with her...do the former owners get one leg taken away as well?

03-15-2004, 06:16 AM
they need to lose more than a leg!!!!!

03-15-2004, 08:25 PM
well , tracy , has really started to whine today!!
this is a very good sign. she's very tired of her kennel and is beginning to want out of it. i think she is ready to join the real world again. it's just she still has the stitches in and they will not be removed until friday. she seems to be doing very well and has that spark of life back in her eyes.
gawd , i'll be glad when the stitches come out because she NEEDS a BATH sooooo bad..it's just she stinks soooo bad!!

03-15-2004, 10:14 PM
that's great news rob! Not the stinky part, the healing part:D What about a dry bath to hold her til she can have a real bath? Sprinkle powder on her and brush. Or you can dampen her(not the incision area, of course you know that) with a slight spray of water and wipe with a fabric softener sheet. This wks great when our mutts get wet outside....freshens their coats and safe to use.

tracy got her stitches out today.
she is doing GREAT. she is almost wanting to run but hasn't figured out how to yet. she still bleeds a little but HEY-- so what. she also got her 'halo' off and thank GAWD , got a bath !!!!!

another pic

She's got some big ol' ears! Is the Boston Terrier one of those breeds that people get their ears cut? That doesn't make much sense to me, or cutting their tails off either.

03-17-2004, 07:34 PM
i agree dave but that's how it is.
when asked about taking a leg off our vet said it ranked right up there to ''clipping tails, snipping ears and declawing cats '' to him.
it just isn't doing any good.
some show bostons do get their ears clipped but not many.

Our son has a Great Dane, he got her ears docked when she was very young. I've seen pics of them without and they don't look like what we think of Great Danes, more like a Lab of some sort. I wonder who first looked at a Dane and thought"That dog would look better with it's ears standing up"...? :rolleyes:

03-18-2004, 04:07 PM
i don't think docked ears came from that. it's a better assumption that it came from the fight ring. smaller ears = less to get bit off.

timmers, another dog we had with leg probs is going to stay with us the weekend.
tracy fell in love with him as soon as he came into the house. they are going a mile a minute and she keeps slipping and falling on her chin. she is such a lover girl.

yes , it is always crazy here.
but FUN--hardly..
we really don't like making the decision to remove an eye, take a leg, or put a dog down because it is too aggressive to adopt out. fun? no. i wish i could say it was. one of the main problems is that our 3 dogs do not get the attention they would if we did not always have fosters in the house. and- it's a pretty thankless job.
mrsrmarley, it's great to help these guys and gals but most of the time we're just wore out and really pi**ed off at people. we put 300miles in travel today for 2 dogs. fun -- naw.

i'm not going to say a word.
you guys tell me about this gal.

04-24-2004, 06:28 AM

Oh yea I remember her. Did she lose her leg. She is such a beautiful Dog. Sure looks like things worked out for her. Can't remember if you decided to keep her or adopt her out. GOD BLESS YOU TRACY

04-24-2004, 10:33 AM
she lost the leg and the sacoptic mange and bow she needs heartworm treatment. she will be adopted out when that is over, about 2 months, to make room for the next one. she is going to be hard to let go of tho.
