WALKING UPDATE! So for new followers hello - lots of questions about what happened to Zelda, so I thought I'd do a little walking update: from October last year, to October this year! Zelda broke her back running into another dog in the park. We had only adopted her a year before, so she hadn't really been with us long at all. She fractured vertebrae and ribs and punctured a lung, had a metal implant put in. We've had a pretty up and down year trying to rehabilitate her, with multiple infections and other things. Things weren't looking so good, but then About a month ago we started seeing a new vet, and so far the changes have been pretty good (big thanks to @valeveterinarycentre for looking after Zelda so well). The first two videos were from October last year in @langfordvets in Bristol, where she had her surgery. The last two are October this year, chasing squirrels and motoring around in the park! She still hasn't got all her control back, so as you can see she can't quite squat. She's holding her bladder overnight, but we do have occasional excitement pees. But rather than full emptying, it's more small sprinkles. I don't know if we will be able to properly fix her, if she'll ever stop dragging her rear right leg, if she'll ever stop have infections. She may not be here this time next year, or she might live to be 15, who knows! But for now she's in a good way, and we're grateful for the extra time we are having with her ☀️☀️☀️ #greyhoundlove#greyhoundsofinstagram#sighthoundsofinstagram#rescuedog#dogrehab#longdoggo#disabledpets#greyhoundsmakegreatpets#rescuedogsofinstagram#instadog#spinalinjurydog#doginjuryrecovery#learningtowalkagain#onlylongdoggos#irishgreyhound#retiredracer#sighthoundlove#ilovemydog#greyhoundsofig#bionicpets#animalsinfluence#greyhound
Lola was severly injured in an accident and is disabled since then. She does not have the full control over her hind legs and has to rest after a few meters walking. Despite her limited mobility she is a dog full of joy and well integrated into her pack. We brought Lola to us after her accident in 2012. Due to the constant lack of space we rehomed her with some other dogs to one of our staff members. He guaranteed to take care of the dogs throughout their lives. In return Marina Möbius covered the costs for a wall surrounding his property and provided dog food. But when the employee stopped working at Dog Care Clinic he dumped all dogs in front of our gate. Yes, that's what it is like here... heartbraking. #dogoftheday#mystory#disabledpets#disableddog#rescuedog#srilankadogs
We were so lucky to have met you, Q. We will keep you close to our hearts, sweet boy. Fly high. Thinking of your family at this time. ❤️💕 "Our beautiful little boy, Q, has passed away, suddenly and unexpectedly. I am very sorry to share this sadness with you. Q lived a joyful life despite his disability, and it is through his example that I would like to continue to share funny, happy and quirky posts with you."
#throwback#oneyearago#throwbackthursday 😍 look at these cuties! Pasha 🐈 Peach 🍑♿🏡🦆 and Daisy 🌼🐩 all in bed together! Daisy was so sweet to Peach when he first had to come inside. She loves ducklings and doesn't seem to understand when they get bigger and change colors! Peach used to follow Daisy around, just like us! . . A year ago yesterday I really thought we were going to have to put Peach down. Google Photos keeps inviting me to rediscover this day, and I'm shocked at the photos that come up. For those that don't know, Peach lost the ability to stand and walk about a month after we brought him home. I didn't know at the time, but #scoliosis in #pekinducks is VERY common #scoliosisawareness. He also had a respiratory infection and the Sweedies were just starting to pick on him. He was very sick. It was an incredibly sad, difficult time for all of us. There were a lot of doubts and I had to deal with a lot of negativity from certain people online. But more than anything, we found so much love and support here. People seemed to care about Peach SO MUCH - I told him every time someone commented on his pictures or sent donations, and the friends I've made really helped me deal with everything. Peach never stopped wanting to enjoy his life and seemed so determined to get better, to get healthy and be a happy duck. When I think of the progress he has made over the past year and how much I've learned, and I see how well he's doing, my heart just overflows. I'm so very very proud of Peach, grateful that he persevered and hopeful about his continuing quality of life. He's part of our family. He's one of the most special animals I've even ever heard of, and I'm lucky to know him and be able to learn from him. He's an amazing animal 💛 I love you so much Peachy. I'm so proud of you, buddy. I know this year has been hard, but you are doing so great 👏 💗 . . #scoliosiswarrior#disabledpets#disabledducks#specialneedspets#ilovemypets
Мне кажется, что этот парень радуется любой тряпке😄 (и всё-таки, #трилапынепомеха 😉скакать, бегать и радоваться жизни) #specialpetiscool#t_rex_ekb#kangaroo#особенныйпес#threeleggeddog#threepaws#nublove#nublife#трилапы#собакаинвалид#disableddog#disableddogs#disableddogsofinstagram#disabledandcute#disabledpets#dogsofinstagram#chihuahuas_of_instagram#puppiesofinstagram#puppy#dogs#chihuahuax#mypet#mypuppy#mydog#energizer#dogsarelife#doglovers#puppy_tales#pup
