Woah woah woah.... What a day! After my last 'Ode to Polly' post Polly decided to test Drew's love for her. While she was at work with Drew she was standing on the curb of the driveway. A lady wanting to pass the line of cars turning left... Passing them on the right she hit the curb and our sweet Polly. She ran into Drew eyes swollen and mouth bleeding. Drew rushed her to the nearest vet.
Amazingly there were no broken bones, no fractures teeth, just a really really swollen head. When I made it up there we went to check on her. She sat up when she heard drew and her left eye was the size of a tennis ball, and facing the wrong way. Drew grabbed the doctor to show her and she said we need to start preparing for the possibility that she will lose the eye. She couldn't give her anti inflammatories because her liver enzymes were to high. So a shot of steroids and we waited.
Poor banged up pooch...
No matter how sedated she knew exactly when Drew was coming. As soon as he left she was whining for him. When Drew went out to pay the bill Polly would not take her eyes off the door waiting for Drew to come back in. She is smitten for that guy!
Three hours later, plenty of fluids, a steroid and $900.... Our pup is home! Both eyes and all of her limbs! As we were checking her out a nurse ran in with a dog that had just been hit by a car. The doctor couldn't find a heart beat. He looked up at me and said you have one lucky pup. Oh we know.
A boy and his dog... These two are the boy and dog people base stories on. Think, Old Yeller, Where the Red Fern Grows and Hachiko .... Hopefully without rabies, and premature death. Best of buddies!
