Charity evidently begins at the vet's


Charity is still not well although she is better than she was. Her prolapsed rectum was put back where it belongs but her digestive stuff is still not right.

I took her to the vet this morning and horned in on Holly's eye appointment (scratched cornea, should be fine) because she smelled like death.

Charity has no temperature and is still trying with everything she has to become well. The person who owned her before I acquired her should someday suffer as this poor pup has. We located the breeder who owns her mother.

This puppy, who the vet judged to be 7-8 weeks old, based on her size and development, was born on July 23, 2008 at 7:30 p.m. She is almost 5 MONTHS old! The breeder, who kept the puppies with their mom till they were 3 months old due to their itty-bitty-ness, was in tears. The puppy weighed more when she was given to her previous owner than she does now.

I have shed tears over this baby and am trying desperately to not get TOO attached, as her prognosis is still guarded. She sure is a little fighter, though.

Oh, poor baby! She's very lucky to have you to care for her now. What were her previous owners thinking??? Or were they?

I hate people who are cruel to animals. Poor little thing. You are the totally perfect person to get her.

I'm sure she's delighted right now with the love and care you are providing! There truly is no better home for that cutie than yours!

Oh, the poor little girl. That previous owner needs to be slapped.

OOooooo, animal abuse burns me to no end. I hope the previous owner gets what's coming to them. Poor baby. Charity is lucky to have you!

what exactly did the previous owner do (or not do) to make her so sick?
