Phoenix 7-23-08

by epjdog • Posted in: Rescue


Hi All,

Phoenix will be going to the ophthalmoloigist on Friday and the rehabber. We are anxious for results about his vision. The radiologist came today to look at his xrays and said that even though we can’t see the bulla, we need to continue taking xrays weekly to see if it looks like it is coming back or was just difficult to see that day (he said they are notoriously difficult to assess especially as they get smaller). He also said that he had 3 broken ribs that have already healed and were not previously noticed.

Overall, Phoenix is feeling good. He got his first puppy vaccine today and didn’t try to bite! He has been grooming himself and using peepee pads in the house. He still can’t really navigate the house or hospital but sleeps in a baby pen during the day so he can’t hurt himself. Without his feeding tube, he is feeling friskier too.

It sounds like the Blanco police are really after the perpetrator which is great.

Please watch the attached video- you will be blown away by how well he navigates the yard blindly!

Thank you for your support.

    The video link doesn’t seem to be working. We’re working on it and hope to have it resolved by Friday. Sorry about that!

    I’ll be thinking good thoughts for his trip to the ophthalmoloigist. It is so great to hear that he is perky and doing regular dog stuff.

    I hope they catch the person who did this and put him away for life. It’s hard to fathom how anyone can be so cruel to a defenseless animal.

    Sending lots of love and prayers to Phoenix.

    I can’t view the latest video. I’m very anxious to see how Phoenix is progressing. I think of him every single day.
