A Quick Update

Since I orginally posted, things have not gotten much better. We took Jasmine to the vets today (Monday) to have her leg looked at and were told that while they would try surgery, it was not hopeful. Once they opened her up, it was determined that the best thing for her was to amputate her leg...as she would be in pretty bad pain for the rest of her life if she still had her leg. I'm in shock and struggled with the decision all day. I hope it was the right one. I never expected this outcome, and while I have read amazing things about tripod dogs, it doesn't make it easier at the moment. I'm not sure when I'll be back to posting. Right now, I feel I need to hold all my animals closer and spend some more time with them. Jasmine will especially need quite a bit of attention when she returns home tomorrow.

I'm so sorry about Jasmine. And this must be horribly painful for you.

Pamper yourself and your puppy for the next couple of days.

Oh, I'm so sorry. I should've stopped by earlier, I didn't know what was happening with your Jasmine. Bless you, it sounds like the better decision, but never an easy one to make. *hugs*

Just checking in since it's been a while. I hope things are doing better now that it's been a couple weeks since the surgery and vacation return. I'm sorry for your losses....let me know if you need anything. Hang in there girlie. We luv you! And your cutesy animals too :)

Don't worry. I used to work at an animal shelter and we had to amputate many limbs and it's no big deal to a dog. That's why they have so many! It'll give her character! Hang in there.
