Lilly Update


Friday we had given Lilly her last round of antibiotics. The next day she started getting sick again. Mostly throwing up but she seemed to lose her motor skills and once again acting disoriented. Sunday she got worse so we had to call the vet to come in and took her to see him. She was pretty much lifeless the whole trip and in his office. But when he would talk to her she would always wag her tail at him and never got mad at him for all the poking and prodding he did. We found out that Lilly is blind in one eye and has some nerve damage to the side of her face she was hit on. After a long exam and blood test we still were not sure what was wrong but her sent us home with more meds. Can you imagine being hit by something hard enough to make you go blind,being dropped off in a place you have never been before?  She had to be so disoriented. Good news is today she is feeling much better. She even licked Lucy's face and acted like she waned to play with our other dogs.We are hoping once she is in good health again and knows no one is going to harm her she will have no dog aggression.

A wonderful website and Boxer Rescue group has been so kind as to help us find a forever home for Lilly. She is up for adoption there but  will remain with us till she is well enough to have her spay and recovery time.http://boxarrescue.rescuegroups.org/animals/detail?AnimalID=4326651

Oh, I am so glad you ended this with the fact that she has improved and is doing well. I was worried and I am so hopeful that she will spend the rest of her days a happy pouch.
Being loved and cared for like every dog should be.
Hugs to you.

lovely Lilly...
my heart hurts for the abused - 2 legged and 4. AFter the tragedy in Ohio, I just have to wonder what is going on in this old world where someone would hit a PET that LOVED you unconditionally so hard that it blinded you??? it makes about as much sense as taking a gun to school and shooting 5 students.

Lilly is so lucky to have you, Loohoo ... you are exactly what this dog needs in her life right now.

bless your pea pickin heart x0
