Yesterday we got to visit with our friend Wilbur, the wirehair dachshund. Wilbur recently had neck surgery. Despite his odd haircut and new neck accessory, he is doing remarkably well. He was able to walk, pee and poop almost immediately out surgery – which are all good signs. He still has a road of recovery ahead him and jumping is off-limits but… all signs are looking good for the immediate future. We’re just grateful our friend is doing well. Thanks to all who offered their positive healing thoughts. It certainly helped!

    What a darling boy,,,,,going back on your page to get more info on this brave guy…but even without his story yet you already have my heart and I am praying that you make a very speedy recovery!!!! I am getting my favorite person on this matter…St Francis who has NEVER let me down!!! Stay strong Wilbur…do your physical therapy and don’t jump off anything that daddy tells u not too! You will be running ike the wind before you know!!! God bless you for the work you do!!

  2. Thanks so much for the update. We have a tweenie here who has had two surgeries, didn’t walk for over a year, used a cart but can now shuffle around on her own pretty darn well. Now she is blind and deaf…all probably the result of coming from a puppy mill and squalor associated with it. She is a rescue and sooooooo precious!
