Today is Oslo’s 3rd birthday.
Instead of spending it at home with us getting showered with love & treats– he is in intensive care, hooked up to a bunch of tubes & machines, with an incision running down the entire length of his spine. It’s heart breaking to even think about. I still can’t believe that this is happening. If someone had told me on Monday that by Wednesday my dog would be having emergency spinal surgery to save him from paralysis I would have thought they were crazy. But, here we are.
And it’s his 3rd birthday.
And he’s alone in a crate with people rushing busily by him. And IVs and a catheter, and pain meds… and nobody to squish his little squishy face and tell him what a good pig he is. I feel terrible- BEYOND terrible.
The greatest condolence for us right now is knowing that there are so many people out there who are in our corner– we can’t thank you enough. Over night we broke the $1500 mark! Can you believe it??! Every single dollar donated, every kind word, every tiny show of support & encouragement warms out heart and gives us strength. Thank you, thank you, thank you. If you would still like to donate– remember that you can do so here.
In honor of his birthday, I’m going to attach a photo of him as a very small puppy. It was love at first sight when we saw this face.
