Sibling Saturday + AMAZING News!

Hey, guys!



Huge, amazing, tears-of-happinesss-causing news on the Lucky front! Not only did her PCV levels go from 17% on Tuesday evening to 19% Friday morning, she is free from heartworms and tick borne diseases. That's not even the best news, if you can believe it.
She went from being completely unable to stand or control her legs and having severe knuckling over in both front legs, to walking on all on her own with only a bit of knuckling over!!!!

I'd given her a bowl of food in her crate and left the door to it open while I went to the sink to fill her water, and right when I turned around she came out of the crate and started walking towards me, slowly wagging her tail. She was slow, and it was a bit wobbly, but she stood and walked under her own power for the first time since Tuesday evening. I burst into tears as she started walking around the living room to find her favorite sun puddle by the back door, and kept crying as she walked a bit outside. It was so, so amazing to see!!! I was seriously thinking she'd have to be put to sleep yesterday morning, so to see that just made all the worry, frustration and fury worth it. <3


Nola and Lucky met last night. :) It went well! Nola's generally good with other (polite) dogs, and is fantastic with all puppies, so I wasn't concerned. She gave Lucky a brief once over glance and a sniff, then walked off to go about her business. Lucky was curious but very respectful of The Boss. She very briefly met Olivia this morning, too. I'll be waiting to introduce her to Pike....he's a dick.

  1. How wonderful! Thanks for sharing your news on Lucky in spite of feeling crummy yourself. Get your well-deserved rest this weekend and feel better soon (it's probably the stress and shock of finding poor Lucky that depressed your immune system - not to mention exhaustion from all your efforts to save her).
