Tiny's Story

On February 24, 2006. Tiny was in her playpen playing with her puppies, When I carefully took her out to the run for a pee. When I returned with her and put her in playpen she let a yelp out, I thought I may have been holding on to her funny.

Tiny The next morning when we realized there was something much more serious going on, Tiny was rushed to the vet, actually 2 different vets, and they advised I go to the emergency clinic in which we did. They all said the same thing they couldn’t figure it out, that perhaps it was milk fever. So they all suggested that we take her to the Ontario Veterinary College at Guelph.Tiny

We raced to Guelph in a panic. Tiny stayed there for a week. I called every day to check on our little angel, as we were so upset.

So a few days later they asked us to come to visit Tiny. Then they broke the bad news to us that they couldn’t do anything for her, they told us take her home and if she is no better in 10 days then bring her back they would euthanatize her as we should be concerned of her quality of life.

I said ‘no way I will work on her till she does get better’.

I should mention that her legs went stiff as a board straight out she could not move. She was paralyzed. She could not eat, or drink on her own she couldn’t have a bowel movement without our help, it was awful.

It was a lot of hard work but it was all worth it as my little Tiny is not only bending her legs she is walking and running. Something we were told would never happen past 10 days.

She was later diagnosed with a small vertebrae. Something she was born with, and that it was only a matter of time until the spinal cord would hit it. Through meds and Glucosamine, that she will have to take for the rest of her life. Tiny shows improvement every day.

     Thank You God and Thank You Tiny for having the will to live.
