Buenos Dias Y'all!!!
The little poodle is now with us. We're calling her Kristy!! The wonderful people who rescued her brought her to us last night after they returned from the vet.
She seems to be doing well under the circumstances. As we said yesterday her left eye muscle has been injured and is not controlling the eye. Her right eye is ulcerated and swollen. Both eyes are infected. She can see some shadow and light so Mom is hoping the vision will return to the right eye once the infection and ulcer is cleared up.
She seems to be able to hear pretty well.
She is extremely skinny and is pretty weak although she is able to walk around a little and is eating, drinking, peeing and she finally pooped this morning. YAAAAAYYYYY!!!!!!!!!
Mom says getting rid of those curled under toenails has helped her to be able to walk a little better but she still has some trouble. We're not sure if it's due to injuries, weakness, or maybe being on those long toenails for so long.
She is a teeny tiny little thing. Even smaller than Milana!!! She weighs 4 pounds right now and Mom says she probably should weigh 6. You can feel all her bones.
Mom said if she didn't have long fur she would look like Tommy did when we brought him here.
We're sending some pics Mom took last night.
Mom gave her some food (pureed chicken) that the people brought for her and she ate that last night. Mom is going to try to get her to start eating some puppy food to put some weight on her.
She's on LOTS of medication for her eyes and for her anemia.
Once we have had her on that for a week we have to take her back for another blood test to see if her anemia is better.
Y'all say some BIG prayers and send some strong healing energy for her please!!!

We didn't have internet last night or earlier this morning because we had a BAD lightning storm yesterday and it struck the tower that our internet comes from. Mom and all us furkids just piled into bed and watched tv.

Dad is working on the garage gate. It's rusted out pretty bad at the bottom so it has to be repaired or replaced. Dad's gonna try to repair it first cause it costs too much to replace it.

Mom's gotta go give Kristy some more medicine so we gotta end this. PLEASE don't forget to vote today and say some prayers and send healing energy for the new kid!!
