Emma, according to the doc, held up just fine. He got in and found a severely ruptured disc and pulled it out like strands of spaghetti. The bleeding was a potential problem so he didn’t dawdle. Her weak heart held up. Now we wait several days to see what shakes….hopefully that tail. And, as was said today, by Craig in the comments section, the rehab is as challenging for the care givers as for the pup. Small price to pay. If no further complications in the weeks to come Emma girl will be shaking that rear end soon.

The most sincere thanks to all here and at Hoarding Woes that extended their very kind well wishes and prayers. Thank you!
